NFL Week 14 Best Bets: In Russ, We Believe As Seahawks Overtake Texans and More Picks by Jason La Canfora
A difficult week ago. Draw 2-2. Shame on me for dropping it Eagle at the last minute. c. And, well Bengali should have won that game, but what can you say. That brings us to 17-13 in the season for best bets. We are 30-15 ATS for the last three weeks combined.
But I have to be honest, I don’t like this game. I don’t really like it at all. So I’m going to limit the mat here and stick with applying a little powder. There are a couple of teams that I believe aren’t as bad as their record suggests and still have a lot to play with, facing really brutal opponents with nothing to play with.
So I’m going to shoot that way and go a little wilder next week.
Houston Texans +8.5
Russ is back, honey! And they would let him cook in front of the terrible Texans defenses. Houston lacks a hasty and encompassing pass and only needs to cut one of its few remaining good defenders, again, in Zach Cunningham. The Seahawks still have some playoffs left and the Texans are essentially playing without a quarterback these days. I find this to be ugly. And agile.
And I don’t see a scenario where the Texans can play from behind and can’t snowball any further. Too much Wilson for the Texans.
New York Jet +5.5
The jet’s defenses are terrible. I understand the Saints attack problems, but they have one of the better TD differentiators in NFC, they have legitimate defenses, get stronger and stronger and, did I mention Airplanes Jet can’t stop anyone? They will turn Zach Wilson pass a few times and score defensively and run kick to glory… Or at least a solid win by a touch of the ball or more.
