We’re onto Week 14 of the NFL betting season and there are playoff implications aplenty across the schedule. Let’s take a look at the games this week and narrow down four moneyline winners.
Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys
The moneyline: Eagles -195, Cowboys +155
I simply don’t have much faith in the Eagles these days – even if they’re fresh off a win. Taking a closer look, the Eagles were leading just 14-13 midway through the third quarter against a Washington Redskins team that was with Mark Sanchez under center. Prior to that, the Eagles nearly lost at home to the New York Giants, trailing 19-3 to start the game.
Dallas is a different animal. They’re playing really well right now – especially on defense – and that’s going to be a problem for Philadelphia. The Eagles still aren’t running the ball well, averaging just 103.0 rushing yards per game on the season (23rd).
It’s tough to go on the road and be one-dimensional and win. And even though Philadelphia has won two of three, they’re still allowing 134.3 rushing yards per game in that span. Ezekiel Elliott should have a good game.
The Cowboys have had 10 days to prepare here and while it might be close since this game means a lot to both sides, Dallas should find a way to win. Bet Dallas +155 with 888Sport.
New York Giants at Washington Redskins
The moneyline: Giants -195, Redskins +155
The Giants are a small favorite on the road at Washington but these are simply two teams heading in opposite directions. The Giants have won three of four with the lone loss being a game where they blew a 19-3 lead (at Philadelphia). The Redskins have lost four of five with the lone win being a game in which they were outgained in yards 501-286.
Washington has injuries all over the place, but the biggest figures to be at quarterback. Some people felt there might not have been a huge drop-off from Alex Smith to Colt McCoy because McCoy has been in the system for years. However, McCoy is now out and Mark Sanchez – who was a street free agent a few weeks ago – is starting.
But that’s just one of many injuries for the Redskins, who put another offensive lineman on injured reserve this week, adding to two others who are already there. They also put their top-graded cornerback Quinton Dunbar on injured reserve too.
The Giants often can’t get out of their own way with mistakes, penalties and sloppy play, but they’re more together right now than the makeshift Redskins. Bet Washington -195 with Karamba.
Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals
The moneyline: Lions -148, Cardinals +120
The Cardinals got a big win in Green Bay last week, but that was against a team that quit on its head coach. The numbers were still ugly for the Cards, as they had just 133 passing yards and handily were outdone in terms of first downs, time of possession and plays run.
The Lions continue to fight (and screw up late in games), but they haven’t quit on their coach. Their run defense has been better since Damon Harrison was acquired as they are sixth in the NFL in rushing yards per game allowed in their last three. If Arizona is forced to pass, it won’t be winning this game.
Detroit on the road is always dicey but Arizona lost at home to Oakland in its latest contest. The Lions have the better quarterback and we’re banking on him being one of the key differences. Bet Detroit -148 with 888Sport.
New York Jets at Buffalo Bills
The Bills blew out the New York Jets a few weeks ago (41-10) with Matt Barkley at the helm. It is tough to beat a division rival twice in one year but it definitely feels like they aren’t getting much respect here.
Yes, the Bills are 4-8 but they are 3-5 with Josh Allen healthy and 2-1 with him starting at home. The Bills have played very well in their last three games, getting the win over the Jets, beating the Jacksonville Jaguars and falling just short (21-17) at Miami last week.
Their offense is a wild card each week but at least the defense has held the last three opponents to 17.7 points per game.
As for the Jets, I expect them to be deflated in this spot. It looks like head coach Todd Bowles will be fired soon and the team is coming off a very discouraging loss. They led 16-0 early and 19-6 in the third quarter, yet ended up losing 26-22. They’ve now lost six in a row while averaging just 13 points per game.
This won’t be a pretty contest but it should be one the Bills end up winning. Bet Buffalo -182 with Betfair.
