Tags: NFL PIcks & Predictions

 

With 3 weeks left in the regular season, the schedule has seemed to coalesce and there are a bevy, no smorgasboard, no a plentiful bounty of quality football games. The NFL has never has this many games this late in the season pitting teams with winning record count ‘em 6 games between teams with winning records…save for maybe the last week of the season the stakes couldn’t be higher. There isn’t a lot hype needed on my part, just enjoy these games. The odds are as usual provided by bodog.net for entertainment and comparison purposes only. Its too close to Christmas to try to hit me up to help you pay your bookie if you bet the lines and lose the kiddies Christmas presents.

 

Sunday, December 16

 

Broncos (10-3) @ Ravens (9-4)

M&T Bank Stadium, Baltimore 1:00 (CBS)

Favorite Broncos by 3

Last Week Broncos defeated Raiders 26-13, Ravens lost to the Redskins 31-28

Fast Fact The Broncos have never beaten the Ravens in Baltimore, the last win the Broncos had in Baltimore was John Elway’s rookie season in 1983, the last year the Colts were in Baltimore.

Both teams are streaking but in different directions. The Broncos are riding the peerless passing of Peyton Manning to an eight game winning streak. The Ravens have lost back to back games by 3 points each and the questions are cropping up quick. This is a tough game to call, but I think that the Broncos can pull out a tight win, there are just too many questions about Joe Flacco being a big money QB.

Pick-Denver

 

Packers (9-4) @ Bears (8-5)

Soldier Field, Chicago 1:00 (FOX)

Favorite Packers by 3

Last Week Packers defeated Lions 27-20, Bears lost to Vikings 21-14

Fast Fact Packers have won 6 of the last 7 meetings

The Pack are nowhere near their 1 loss juggernaut from last year but keeping it together just enough to keep their divisional rivals at bay. The Bears are a mess looking more and more like a fraud, as their offense is being exposed as its usual inept self. Since the defense is starting to show treads with Brian Urlacher and Peanut Tillman out with injuries. Add the fact the Jay Cutler is a question mark to play (again) I just cant see the Bears winning, they will keep it close but Da Bears ain’t winning here.

Pick-Green Bay

 

Colts (9-4) @ Texans (11-2)

Reliant Stadium, Houston 1:00 (CBS)

Favorite Texans by 9

Last Week Colts defeated Titans 27-23, Texans lost to Patriots 42-14

Fast Fact Colts QB Andrew Luck is the first #1 pick QB to have a winning season in his rookie season

Playoff Implications Texans can clinch AFC South with win

The Colts are growing by leaps and bounds and far exceeding any expectations, and are firmly in control of their playoff destiny. Meanwhile the Texans have taken a pair of primetime losses and bad ones as the only blemishes of their otherwise spotless record. Im starting to doubt the validity of the Texans legitimacy as a quality team, as they seem to have a real problem beating quality teams. Their two signature wins against the Ravens and Bears are teams that are now fading badly.Tthe problem here is that the Colts with all their youthful exuberance are still a young team facing a dangerous defense on the road. I like the Colts to be sure but Im not quite ready to bank on them in an uber hostile venue like Houston.

Pick-Houston

 

Jaguars (2-11) @ Dolphins (5-8)

SunLife Stadium; Miami Gardens, FL 1:00 (CBS)

Favorite Dolphins by 7

Last Week Jaguars lost to Jets 17-10, Dolphins lost to 49ers 27-13

Fast Fact Forget the North Florida-South Florida type in-state rivalry. These teams have only faced each other 4 times in the regular season and split the meetings.

This is a ho-hum game as the Jags are sleepwalking through more games and the Dolphins have trouble playing a complete game. The Jags offense is still a shambles and facing a decent Dolphins defense this will be highlighted. The Dolphins may not have a stellar offense but its plenty enough to wear down a sad-sack Jags defense that if the Jets can put points on the Dolphins will have no trouble doing the same.

Pick-Miami

 

Vikings (7-6) @ Rams (6-6-1)

Edward Jones Dome, St. .Louis 1:00 (FOX)

Favorite Rams by 3

Last Week Vikings defeated Bears 21-14, Rams defeated Bills 15-12

Fast Fact The Rams three-game winning streak has come despite only four offensive TDs, but opponents have been limited to 14.0 points per game in that span.

The Vikings broke their skid by doing what they’ve always been doing riding the redoubtable Adrian Peterson to as many yards as they can get and hoping that they can milk leads. With no real passing game to speak of the Vikes are living on their running game and defense. The Rams are winning ugly and their offense is just as non-existant. Im leery of banking on the Vikes because of their inconsistent passing game and knowing that the Rams improving defense will stack the box. But Im going with them because the Rams offense will struggle with the Vikes solid defensive unit.

Pick-Minnesota

 

NY Giants (8-5) @ Falcons (11-2)

Georgia Dome, Atlanta 1:00 (FOX)

Favorite Falcons by 1

Last Week Giants defeated Saints 52-27, Falcons lost to Panthers 30-20

Fast Fact The Falcons clinched their third straight playoff berth last and are on their longest playoff run in team history.

The Giants offense and special teams came together in a rousing rout of the Saints while the Falcons took a lackluster loss in Carolina. I wish I could put more faith in Matty Ice but the Falcons sometimes don’t play like an 11 win team with a division title already in their pocket. Eli Manning can be the most frustrating quarterback to figure, playing solid most weeks but sometimes making puzzling mistakes. Don’t ask me why but this smells like an upset. The Giants play tough on the road and the Falcons while tough at home are looking like they are coasting.

Pick-New York Giants (Upset of the Week)

 

Buccaneers (6-7) @ Saints (5-8)

Mercedes-Benz Superdome, New Orleans 1:00 FOX

Favorite Saints by 3 ˝

Last Week Buccaneers lost to Eagles 23-21, Saints lost to Giants 52-27

Fast Fact The Bucs have blown leads in the fourth quarter four times this season

Both teams are coming off humiliating losses, the Bucs losing to the lowly Eagles while the Saints got housed by the G-Men. Both teams are on the very fringe of the playoff chase so this is pretty much a knockout game for both teams. Im banking on Drew Brees being able to strafe the weak Bucs secondary or big yards and the Bucs not being able to hang offensively.

Pick-New Orleans

 

Redskins (7-6) @ Browns (5-8)

Browns Stadium, Cleveland 1:00 (FOX)

Favorite No Line due to questionable status of RGIII

Last Week Redskins defeated Ravens 31-28, Browns defeated Chiefs 30-7

Fast Fact The Browns 30-7 win was their largest margin of victory since 2003

The Redskins are reluctant to press RGIII into action if they can help it but are trying to stay in the NFC playoff picture, facing a fast improving Browns team this win is far from a given without their dynamic QB. Im going to gamble that the Skins will be able cobble enough offense to slog thru to a win.

Pick-Washington

 

Panthers (4-9) @ Chargers (5-8)

Qualcomm Stadium, San Diego 4:05 (FOX)

Favorite Chargers by 3

Last Week Panthers defeated Falcons 30-20, Chargers defeated Steelers 34-24

Fast Fact The Chargers have yet to beat the Panthers at home (0-2)

Both teams coming off stunning upsets of playoff contending teams, but neither are anywhere close to being real contenders themselves. Cam Newton played like a beast last week but its anyones guess if he will repeat the feat on the road. This is a tough one to call and I know Im likely to regret it either way I call this game.

Pick-San Diego

 

Lions (4-9) @ Cardinals (4-9)

University of Phoenix Stadium; Glendale, AZ 4:05 FOX

Favorite Cardinals by 7

Last Week Lions lost to Packers 27-20, Cardinals lost to Seahwaks 58-0

Fast Fact The Cards have won the last five meetings in Arizona

The Lions again found a way to lose again, this time after having the lead on the Pack at Lambea while the Seahawks to a frightful beating in Seattle and have more or less just folded up tents for the season. Now while The Lions aren’t scaring anyone this season and have played wildly inconsistent often but give them some credit they are competing hard in every game. I think Matthew Stafford will have fun riddling the weak Cards defense. The Cards are a shell of the team that started 4-0

Pick-Detroit (Lock of the week)

 

Seahawks (8-5) vs. Bills (5-8)

Rogers Centre; Toronto Ontario, Canada 4:05 (FOX)

Favorite Seahawks by 6

Last Week Seahawks defeated Cardinals 58-0, Bills lost to Rams 15-12

Fast Fact The Seahawks 58 points last week broke the franchise record for scoring in a game set in 1977 against Buffalo

The Seahawks are feeling all kinds of froggy after a woodshed treatment of the Cards and are very much in the playoff hunt, the Bills are pretty much done after a lackluster effort against the Rams. This is a trap game for the Seahawks with a flexed into primetime showdown with the Niners looming, its easy to assume that they might get caught looking ahead to this game. Also the west coast team heading east rule might be in effect. But for some reason I think th

 

Chiefs (2-11) @ Raiders (3-10)

O.co Coliseum, Oalkand

Favorite Raiders by 3

Last Week Chiefs lost to Browns 30-7, Raiders lost to Broncos 26-13

Fast Fact The Chiefs are winless against conference opponents (0-9)

This old school rivalry is probably one that is good in name only, both teams are sleepwalking through the latter quarter of the season. Carson Palmer continues to throw bushels of passes but is usually so far behind that it makes no matter. The Chiefs are the only team in the conference that could be labeled worse. The Raiders should win this tossup only because the Chiefs are just not a good road team, neither team is that good but the Chiefs are marginally worse.

Pick-Oakland

 

Pittsburgh (7-6) @ Dallas (7-6)

Cowboys Stadium; Arlington, TX 4:25 (CBS)

Favorite Steelers by 2

Last Week Cowboys defeated Bengals 20-19, Steelers lost to Chargers 34-24

Fast Fact One or both these teams have played in 16 of 46 Super Bowls (8 each)

This classic matchup features 2 teams that are trying desperately to stay in the playoff hunt, the Steelers have a much much better handle on their playoff destiny than the inconsistent Pokes do but the Steelers have all sorts of problems with the return of Big Ben. Hes back but has developed happy feet and has had a nasty predilection for making untimely turnovers and other preventable mistakes. Im not real sold on the Pokes (when am I ever?) But I have the bad feeling that they are going to pull out an unlikey win over a Steeler team I think is fading down the stretch and keep their media sycophantic wonks drooling over their playoff possibilities however improbable.

Pick-Dallas

 

San Francisco (9-3-1) @ New England (10-3) 8:20 NBC

Gilette Stadium; Foxboro, MA 8:20 (NBC)

Favorite Patriots by 4˝

Last Week 49ers defeated Dolphins 27-13, Patriots defeated Texans 42-13

Fast Fact The Patriots have won the last three meetings in the series after snapping a Niners 6 game win streak.

Easily the most intriguing matchup of the week, the Niners head way east to face a top AFC team. The Niners have seemed to settle in on using Colin Kaepernick at QB and their offense is moving along nicely, now the Pats offense hasn’t had any real trouble moving but will face their stiffest test against a powerhouse Niner defense. Tom Brady will not be able to sit in the pocket picking out receivers at will like he did in his surgical dissection of the Texans on Monday Night. I like the Niners and their defense, as well as their quietly efficient offense, but even with the Pats on a short week, Im not secure in picking a west coast team coming east. It doesn’t always pan out (see Chargers-Steelers last week) but Im not betting against an East Coast team at home in December against a West Coast team.

Pick-New England

 

 

Monday, December 17

NY Jets (6-7) @ Titans (4-9)

LP Field, Nashville 8:30 (ESPN)

Favorite Titans by 1˝

Last Week Jets defeated Jaguars 17-10, Titans lost to Colts 27-23

Fast Fact The Jets have won three of the four meetings in Nashville.

The grins and jeers are starting to come back to the Jets coach as they have somehow wormed their way back into the fringes of the playoff hunt. The Titans keep losing tight and close games. The question of the appearance of Tim Tebow continues to haunt the Jets and their lack of offense is still a big big problem, Playing a weka schedule the Jets are fooling themselves into thinking that they are a legit playoff team. Im going to take a chance here and say that playing on primetime exposed them as the fraud everyone knows that they are and the Titans pull the mild upset.

Pick-Tennessee

 

Last Week: 11-5 (Lock correct, upset not selected

Overall:132-75-1

Locks:11-3

Upsets:6-8

 

BlackBandit20s Thursday Week 15 Pick

Tags: NFL Picks & Predictions

Here is the pick for the weeks first game, the rest of the picks to follow on Friday

 

Thursday, December 13

Bengals (7-6) @ Eagles (4-9)

Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia 8:20 (NFLN)

Favorite Bengals by 5

Last Week Bengals lost to Cowboys 20-19, Eagles defeated Buccaneers 23-21

Fast Fact Bengals have won 7 of the 11 meetings between the two teams

Blowing a very winnable game, the Bengals damaged their playoff chances by giving away a 9 point lead against Dallas. Philly finally got one to fall their way as they pulled out a last second win against the Bucs on the road. The Bengals have more talent on both sides of the ball and should pressure Nick Foles into a bevy of mistakes. The problem is can the Bengals cash these mistakes in, they had so many chances to bury the Pokes and left them in the game. The Eagles are an offensive mess and struggle to put a cohesive consistent attack. The Bengals are the better team but have a nasty tendency to play down to the level of their opponent which leads me to believe that this game will be closer than it should be but the Bengals should pull it out.

Pick-Cincinnati

I was annoyed that I messed up my Bengals-Chargers pick, I was all set to pick the Bengals to continue their recent winning ways. The Bengals did win, but my non paying attention self typed in San Diego. So thats a loss I'll take with egg on my face. But I made sure I checked all the picks before submitting these picks for your review, persual and approval. All odds provided by bodog.net this week cause their site came up.

I say this only because Im so used to saying it and Im not trying to explain to someone wife, girlfriend or significant other why you lost the Christmas Money.
 
NFL SCHEDULE – WEEK 14

Sunday, December 9

Falcons (11-1) @ Panthers (3-9)

Bank of America Stadium, Charlotte 1:00 (FOX)

Favorite Falcons by 3˝

Last Week Falcons defeated Saints 23-13, Panthers lost to Chiefs 27-21

Fast Fact Falcons have scored 30 or more points in the last five meetings, winning all of them.

The Falcons are probably the most underrated 11-1 team you will ever see, the have been grinding out wins and avenged their only loss with a solid Thursday performance against the Saints. The Panthers just looked lost in Kansas City last week and the regression of Cam Newton while not full is terribly disheartening to his ardent supporters. The Falcons might not win pretty but they have more than enough talent on both sides of the ball to get the win.

Pick-Atlanta

 

 

Ravens (9-3) @ Redskins (6-6)

FedEx Field; Landover, MD 1:00 CBS

Favorite Redskins by 3

Last Week Ravens lost to Steelers 23-20, Redskins defeated Giants 17-16

Fast Fact With the exception of the two New York teams that share a stadium, these are the two closest located teams, 33.1 miles from stadium to stadium

The Redskins are quietly climbing back into respectability led by their precocious offensive leader. RGIII. The Ravens once considered an AFC power are slipping badly and the quiet questions are cropping up about if they are really a viable contender. This game screams upset and the weakened Ravens defense looks like it will have problems with Griffin and fellow rookie running back Alfred Morris who has been a wily counterpart. I keep wanting to believe that Joe Flacco will be able to sustain his early solid play and utilize the running of Ray Rice better. I know Im gonna hate myself for this one.

Pick-Washington

 

Bears (8-4) @ Vikings (6-6)

Mall of America Field @ HHH Metrodome, Minneapolis 1:00 (FOX)

Favorite Bears by 3

Last Week Bears lost to Seahawks 23-17 in OT, Vikings lost to Packers 23-14

Fast Fact Can a player be comeback player of the year after only missing 1 game? Less than year after a major knee injury, Adrian Peterson has rushed for 6.2 yards per carry, 120.5 yards a game and 1446 yards rushing all of which are league bests.

The Bears took a painful OT loss and are in real danger of losing their once solid grip on the NFC North. Meanwhile, the Vikes are coming apart fast and wasting the brilliant comeback season of Adrian Peterson who is pounding out yards despite defenses keying on stopping him. These two teams are not as far apart as some might think. As much as its tempting to give the Bears the benefit of the doubt after their tough loss I think that the Vikings are overdue for a game that keeps them in the hunt. Its dumb I know, but something keeps telling me the Vikes cant keep screwing up Peterson’s breathtaking performances.

Pick-Minnesota

 

Cowboys (6-6) @ Bengals (7-5)

Paul Brown Stadium, Cincinnati 1:00 (FOX)

Favorite Bengals by 3

Last WeekCowboys defeated Eagles 38-33, Bengals defeated Chargers 20-13

Fast Fact The Cowboys have only one win in Cincinnati in 4 tries and that was a 23-20 win by the 2 time defending champs against a weak Bengals squad in 1994

The Pokes again played a shootout but were on the winning side this time around, the Bengals have quietly pushed their way back into playoff contention and are riding an impressive four game win streak. I still have zero faith in Tony Romo, his suspect offensive line (facing a Bengals defense tied for the lead in sacks) and the Pokes non-existant running game. Their secondary is highly vulnerable and facing stud receiver AJ Green is not a recipe for a win. The Bengals won’t be as starstruck as some honks and Poke fans think that they will be. That and I wont mess up my pick entry.

Pick-Cincinnati

 

Chiefs (2-10) @ Browns (4-8)

Browns Stadium, Cleveland 1:00 (CBS)

Favorite Browns by 6˝

Last WeekChiefs defeated Panthers 27-21, Browns defeated Raiders 20-13

Fast Fact The Browns 475 yards of offense last week against Oakland was a season high.

Burdened by the senseless murder-suicide of their teammate, The Chiefs played an inspired game and upended the Panthers. The Browns have been playing much better as of late and have won back to back games. I think this is the rare chance for the Browns to play the bully. The Chiefs are an emotional mess and the Browns are actually the better team on both sides of the ball.

Pick-Cleveland

 

NY Jets (5-7) @ Jaguars (2-10)

EverBank Field, Jacksonville 1:00 (CBS)

Favorite Jets by 3

Last Week Jets defeated Cardinals 7-6, Jaguars lost to Bills 34-18

Fast Fact The Jags rank dead last in the NFL at 78.8 rushing yards per game

The Jets won an absolutely ugly game at home and the mess that is their season has yet to abate. The once grinning and jeering Rex Ryan is trying to find a way out of the QB mess that he partially created. Facing a Jags team that is still trying to find some kind of identity with no real running game and one of their more exciting receivers in Cecil Shorts sidelined with concussion. As much as I would love to say that the Jets will self-destruct and lose here, I cant do it. The Jags are a mess on both sides of the ball, and even the Jets cant screw this one up. Oh no, will this fire up the New York masses for a late playoff charge???

Pick-New York Jets

 

Eagles (3-9) @ Buccaneers (6-6)

Raymond James Stadium, Tampa 1:00 (FOX)

Favorite Buccaneers by 7˝

Last Week Eagles lost to Cowboys 38-33, Buccaneers lost to Broncos 31-23

Fast Fact Eagles in the middle of their longest losing streak in 45 years

The Eagles are basicially playing out the string, while the Bucs fight to stay in the playoff picture. The Bucs have solid production on both running and passing. The Eagles basically have neither and have more or less quit. With the Bucs still very much viable in the playoff hunt, they will have no time to dawdle with this weak opponent.

Pick-Tampa Bay

 

Chargers (4-8) @ Steelers (7-5)

Heinz Field, Pittsburgh 1:00 (CBS)

Favorite No line due to questionable Pit QB status

Last WeekChargers lost to Bengals 20-13, Steelers defeated Ravens 23-20

Fast Fact The Steelers and Chargers played the first 11-10 final score NFL game in 2008

The Steelers may have very well saved their season with a gritty win in Baltimore, while the Chargers are finding new and exciting ways to lose leads and games. This is the type of break that the Steelers need. A fading team, a west coast team that is headed east to play out the string. This will definitely be a dead team walking here in the Chargers no matter who starts at QB.

Pick-Pittsburgh

 

Rams (5-6-1) @ Bills (5-7)

Ralph Wilson Stadium; Orchard Park, NY 1:00 (FOX)

Favorite Bills by 3

Last Week Rams defeated 49ers 16-13 in OT, Bills defeated Jaguars 34-18

Fast Fact Rams have not won back to back road games since November 2010

Both these teams have quietly snuck back to the fringes of the playoff talk which makes this a little less of a dog game than one would initially think. The Rams are showing promise under Sam Bradford but still lack a go-to receiver. The Bills are showing much improved defensive fortitude as of late and have won 2 of their last three. Im still not really sold on the Rams, and playing on the road is still not something they have mastered and I cant see them going into a cold weather venue and winning.

Pick-Buffalo

 

Titans (4-8) @ Colts (8-4)

Lucas Oil Stadium, Indianapolis 1:00 (CBS)

Favorite Colts by 6

Last Week Titans lost to Texans 24-10, Colts defeated Lions 35-33

Fast Fact The Andrew Luck to Donnie Avery pass to beat the Lions was the Colts first winning score with no time left since 1990.

Continuing to be the leagues most stunning reversal the Colts are playing lights out and are closing in on a playoff berth, the Titans continue to be one of the most disappointing and puzzling teams in the NFL. The Colts are putting up points in a hurry, and playing a team that is very generous with the points allowed (29.6) the Colts shouldn’t have that much trouble here, especially at home.

Pick-Indianapolis

 

Dolphins (5-7) @ 49ers (8-3-1)

Candlestick Park, San Francisco 4:05 (CBS)

Favorite 49ers by 10

Last Week Dolphins lost to Patriots 23-16, 49ers lost to Rams 16-13 in OT

Fast Fact The Dolphins only average 317.8 yards a game, while the Niners only allow 279.6.

The Niners played about as bad as they could play and still had a chance to still win it. Colin Kaepernick finally had that kind of game that you were expecting him to play when the lights first were turned up on him. The Dolphins played the Pats tough but you really didn’t expect much from them did you? In any case, I expect a tougher game than the spread might indicate. I think the Niners bounce back strong.

Pick-San Francisco

 

Cardinals (4-8) @ Seahawks (7-5)

CenturyLink Field, Seattle 4:25 (FOX)

Favorite Seahawks by 10

Last Week Cardinals lost 7-6, Seahawks defeated 23-17 in OT

Fast Fact Cards trying to avoid their first 9 game losing streak since 1943

The Cards played a sluggish lifeless game in Gotham and still had a shot of winning. But that four game winning streak is a distant memory. The Seahawks won a slugfest in Chicago and put themselves in the drivers seat in the wild card race and are still incredibly in striking distance of the Niners in the NFC West. The Seahawks are cash money at home and the Cards aren’t beating anyone but themselves.

Pick­-Seattle

 

Saints (5-7) @ NY Giants (7-5)

MetLife Stadium; E. Rutherford, NJ 4:25 (FOX)

Favorite Giants by 4

Last Week Saints lost to Falcons 23-13, Giants lost to Redskins 17-16

Fast Fact Saints QB Drew Brees was held without a touchdown pass for the first time in 56 games.

The Saints played about as about as flat a game as they could have. The G-Men kept finding ways not to score in DC on Monday and it cost them a critical game in the division. Both teams need this win badly, but the Saints need it more. Does that equate to a win for the visitors? No, I don’t trust that seriously suspect Saints D. Though the G-Men haven’t played real well in Gotham, I think they get the win.

Pick-New York Giants

 

Lions (4-8) @ Packers (8-4)

Lambeau Field, Green Bay 8:20 (NBC)

Favorite Packers by 7

Last Week Lions lost to Colts 35-33, Packers defeated Vikings 23-14

Fast Fact The Lions have not won at Green Bay since 1991 (including 2 losses in Milwaukee)

The Lions are bickering and fussing and looking nothing like the feel good story that they were last year. The Packers are not the juggernaut that they were this time last year but they are still a solid team. I seriously don’t think that we will see a repeat of the 45-41 shootout that we saw back on New Years, but I think that the Packers are clearly the better team and shouldn’t be troubled at home.

Pick-Green Bay

 

Monday, December 10

Texans (11-1) @ Patriots (9-3)

Reliant Stadium, Houston 8:30 (ESPN)

Favorite Patriots by 4

Last Week Texans defeated Titans 24-10 Patriots defeated Dolphins 23-16

Fast Fact The 20 combined wins are the tied most for two Monday night opponents have had facing each other.

Easily the best game of the week, two of the bigger name teams of the AFC and NFL face off in the weeks finale. Both teams are playoff bound and this could be repeated for much higher stakes in January. That said, I think both teams will play it close to the vest and keep things under wraps. The Texans are tough on the road, and the Pats rarely lose at home. Im thinking that the Pats will pull out a tight game.

Pick-New England

 

Last Week:10-6 (Lock & Upset Correct)

Overall: 121-70-1

Locks:10-3

Upset: 6-7

Tags: NFL Picks & Predictions

Here is the Thursday Pick, the rest of the Week 14 picks will be posted tomorrow.

 

Thursday, December 6

Denver (9-3) @ Oakland (3-9)

O.co Coliseum, Oakland 8:20 (NFLN)

Favorite Broncos by 10˝

Last Week  Broncos defeated Buccaneers 31-23, Raiders lost to Browns 20-13

Fast Fact Raiders QB Carson Palmer has never defeated Broncos QB Peyton Manning (0-4 Bengals vs Colts, 0-1 Raiders vs Broncos)

The Broncos are on a serious roll, Peyton Manning is playing like his usual impeccable self. Meanwhile the Raiders are scuffling along. Carson Palmer is likely wishing that he hadn’t tried the force a trade route. Lets just put it this way, the Raiders are on auto pilot and the Broncos are just the better team. This game is just another dog Thursday game. The Broncos shouldn’t be threatened here.

Pick-Denver (Lock of the Week)
