2020 NFL Week 14 Predictions



Indianapolis heads to Las Vegas in a game that feels like a playoff game for both teams. Philip Rivers faces his old AFC West rival Derek Carr.

New England Patriots 6-6-0
Versus
Los Angeles Rams 8-4-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


@CockyBelichick is my favorite Twitter user of all time. His twitter feed is that epic. He always inserts the #kisstherings hashtag and it is badass. I'm going to post his 5 best tweets on our site every week like David Letterman does with his top 10 jokes until the owner of this twitter feed requests I take them down because his tweets are that epic. Recently, @CockyBelichick, changed his username to @BelichickMethod. Let's start with the top 5 Tweets heading into week 14.



Too early to read into this. Stay tuned!




Hahaha! That's great.




Rururh, Bruce Arians wishes he had the Waterboy. Like Coach Klein. Bruce Arians would probably ruin Bobby Boucher's career too.




This is from the play where Tyreek Hill caught a touchdown that Andy Reid didn't challenge. Just double checking.




I feel that way about Kyle Dugger to be honest. Great pick in the 2020 NFL Draft.



Why the New England Patriots Will Win: New England's gotten hot at the right time. That's why I believe this game will be close. New England is still strong on the offensive line and their good defensive backs on the defensive side of the ball will keep them in games. New England is one of a few teams with the starters and depth to match the Los Angeles Rams wide receiver for wide receiver. They got the depth to blanket all of the tight ends too. That's one reason why New England can win. However, I'm not sure Cam Newton can do enough offensively to help New England beat the Rams. Newton will have to dominate the turnover battle against Goff the way he dominated the turnover battle against the Los Angeles Rams.


Why the Los Angeles Rams Will Win: The Los Angeles Rams still have some guys who were on the Super Bowl 53 team that lost to New England. The Rams are still pissed about that game and this is their only chance at revenge. Also I picked up the Rams defense in Fantasy Football off of the waiver wire because this defense has guys who can get turnovers and make plays when it matters.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 4.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44. Right now 51% of the betting action is on New England at +5. Take Los Angeles to win and cover with the over.


Final Score Rams 26 Patriots 20 OT

Minnesota Vikings 6-6-0
Versus
Tampa Bay Buccaneers 7-5-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I need to update Tony Mario's NFL Power Rankings when I get the chance. Tony will post updated rankings from earlier in the season next week. NFL Power Rankings.


Why the Minnesota Vikings Will Win: Kirk Cousins and Dalvin Cook head to Tampa Bay. Minnesota is 6-6 and currently controls the 7 seed in the NFC. Minnesota can win if Adam Theilen and Justin Jefferson dominate Tampa Bay's cornerbacks.


Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win: Tampa Bay had a bye week. Tampa Bay has had two weeks to prepare for Minnesota. Lavonte David and Devin White at 3-4 middle linebacker will be ready for Dalvin Cook. Mike Evans and Chris Godwin should be ready to step up at wide receiver against Minnesota's cornerbacks. Tampa Bay is deep at both wide receiver and tight end which is why Tampa Bay should win this game to get out of the funk they are in.


Prediction: Tampa Bay enters as a 6.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $240 dollars, the maximum bet is $300 dollars with the average gambler betting around $270 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 51.5. Right now 65% of the betting action is on Tampa Bay at -6.5. I like Tampa Bay to win and Minnesota cover with the under.

Arizona Cardinals 6-6-0
Versus
New York Giants 7-5-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Heading into week 14 I now have 133 games correct on the year and am now tied with Matt Bowen of ESPN for first place heading into the final 64 games on the year. Oren Shiri of Draft Utopia is the only other panelist with over 130 games heading into week 14 with 131 on the year. Jamey Eisenberg of CBS, ESPN's Mina Kimes, and ESPN's Jason Reid all have 129 games on the year rounding out the top 6 nationally. Jason La Can Fora of CBS has 127 games correct and is seventh nationally. Jason Bantle of Draft Utopia and Kyle Salamido of Gridiron Experts are tied for 125 games correct on the year rounding out the top 9 nationally. John Breech of CBS and ESPN's Mike Clay are tied for that final spot in the top 10 with 124 games correct on the year. Jesse Lucas of Draft Utopia and Pete Prisco of CBS have 123 games correct on the year rounding out the top 12 Nationally.


I went 9-7 for the second week in a row putting me at 133-59 on the year. Oren went 10-5 in week 12 making him 131-61 on the year. Jason Bantle went 11-4 in week 13 and is 125-67 on the year. Jesse Lucas went 10-5 going and is 123-69 on the year. Tanya Holmes went 8-7 in week 13 making her 115-77 on the year. Everyone except Tanya gained a game on me for the second week in a row.


Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Win: Kyler Murray practiced and seems like he's ready to return to 100 percent. Arizona pretty much has all of their key players finally back at 100 percent. Activating Larry Fitzgerald so he can play with weapons like DeAndre Hopkins, Christian Kirk, and Andy Isabella is huge.


Why the New York Giants Will Win: Daniel Jones is coming back from an injury. New York has won four in a row and just beat the Seattle Seahawks in Seattle with Colt McCoy. Kyler Murray went 1-1 against Seattle only beating Seattle in Arizona. Blake Martinez did not practice so Arizona may have some success running the football with New York's star 3-4 middle linebacker out.


Prediction: Arizona enters as a 1.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44.5. Right now 62% of the betting action is on Arizona at -1.5. Take Arizona to win and cover with the over.

Kansas City Chiefs 11-1-0

Miami Dolphins 8-4-0

I've been uploading film to our Youtube Channel for the 2021 NFL Draft. We're even incorporating that film into our mock drafts. If you do film cut ups, add me on Twitter @DraftUtopia and message me. I'm also posting full College Games On Bitchute.


Why the Kansas City Chiefs Will Win: Kansas City got Sammy Watkins back. Miami has three good cornerbacks. Kansas City has Tyreek Hill, Sammy Watkins, Demarcus Robinson, and Byron Pringle at wide receiver. You also have to worry about Travis Kelce at tight end. Eric Fisher and Mike Remmers can give Patrick Mahomes enough time to make good throws.


Why the Miami Dolphins Will Win: Miami only has one receiver that Tua Tagovailoa can depend on in Devante Parker. I like their offensive line, their defense, and their tight end in Mike Gesicki. This team needs a wide receiver and a running back, but they got a three year window of opportunity to contend if Tua continues to develop. Right now, I'm not sure Miami has enough to defeat Kansas City this year despite their promising long-term outlook.


Prediction: Kansas City enters as a 7 point favorite. The minimum bet is $270 dollars, the maximum bet is $330 dollars with the average gambler betting around $300 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 49.5. Right now 57% of the betting action is on Kansas City at -7. Take Kansas City to win and cover with the under.

Draft Utopia airs on Talkshoe and Anchor now. We have a weekly show on Anchor that airs weekdays as well as our usual weekend show on Talkshoe. The Draft Utopia podcast just exceeded 225,600 listeners on Talkshoe while our podcast on Anchor is monetized.




Why the Tennessee Titans Will Win: Tennessee did not have A.J. Brown in week 2 when they barely beat Jacksonville. Derrick Henry should run over Jacksonville and Brown will want to make a statement with Corey Davis on that roster as well.


Why the Jacksonville Jaguars Will Win: Jacksonville does not have a quarterback. They have already been eliminated from the playoffs. If they win this game it will be due to picking apart Breon Borders.


Prediction: Tennessee enters as a 7.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $270 dollars, the maximum bet is $350 dollars with the average gambler betting around $310 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 53. Right now 60% of the betting action is on Tennessee at -7.5. Take Tennessee to win and cover with the under.

Dallas Cowboys 3-9-0
Versus
Cincinnati Bengals 2-9-1


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Dallas Cowboys finally parted ways with fictional GM Bill Lumberg who went 1-2 in his career as GM in the playoffs. Hank Hill from King of the Hill and assistant GM and Director Of College Scouting Dale Gribble are 3-9 since taking over for Lumberg.




Here is this weeks hot take from Hank Hill.

Andy Dalton kick your former teams ass unless you want me to kick your ass. Joe Burrow's ass is on IR no excuses boy!





Why the Dallas Cowboys Will Win: Dallas can still win the NFC East. Cincinnati is eliminated from the playoffs. This is a revenge game for Andy Dalton.


Why the Cincinnati Bengals Will Win: It won't matter if Cincinnati plays Ryan Finley or Brandon Allen at quarterback. Joe Mixon is expected to miss week 14, but could be back for week 15.


Prediction: Dallas enters as a 3.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 42.5. Right now 56% of the betting action is on Cincinnati at +3.5. Take Dallas to win and cover with the over.

Chris Ransom's Pick


You can go to Fanpicks and enter the Promo Code draftutopia to win $20 dollars. We also have a Draft Kings advertisement on our home page so you can go there to sign up for Fantasy Football as well.


Why the Houston Texans Will Win: Deshaun Watson wants to prove he's the better quarterback than Mitchell Trubisky once and for all. If Watson can win without Will Fuller, Randall Cobb, or Kenny Stills in Chicago against a stingy Chicago defense than this road victory will validate that. Brandin Cooks got injured against Indianapolis too.


Why the Chicago Bears Will Win: Mitchell Trubisky is playing a defense that is one of the worst in the league in terms of both run defense and pass defense. Chicago can end their losing streak. Right now, the team isn't responding to General Manager Ryan Pace and head coach Matt Nagy.


Prediction: Houston enters as a 1 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45.5. Right now 60% of the betting action is on Houston at -1. Take Houston to win and cover with the over.

Why the Denver Broncos Will Win: If Drew Lock had Ju'Wuan James at right tackle or Courtland Sutton at wide receiver, Denver may win. They don't have those guys and go on the road to Carolina.


Why the Carolina Panthers Will Win: Carolina will not have Christian McCaffrey at running back or D.J. Moore at wide receiver. Teddy Bridgewater is less likely to committ a turnover compared to Drew Lock which is why Carolina barely wins this game.


Prediction: Carolina enters as a 3.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47. Right now 94% of the betting action is on Carolina at -3.5. I like Carolina to win and Denver to cover with the under.

Chris Ransom's Pick


Email me at chris@draftutopia.com if you are interested in being featured on the Draft Utopia podcast. I'm also part of a new film cut group for the NFL Draft on Twitter so you can email me to inquire about that.


Why the New York Jets Will Win: The Jets would be 1-11 if it wasn't for Greg Williams calling a cover 0 putting Lamar Jackson who ran a 4.6 40-time against Henry Ruggs III who ran a 4.22 40-time.


Why the Seattle Seahawks Will Win: This is a revenge game for Jamal Adams who plays his former team this week. Look for Adams to intercept Sam Darnold at least once in this game. Russell Wilson has Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf as weapons who can pick apart rookie cornerbacks Bryce Hall and Lamar Jackson.


Prediction: Seattle enters as a 13.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $530 dollars, the maximum bet is $770 dollars with the average gambler betting around $650 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5. Right now 51% of the betting action is on New York at +13.5. Take Seattle to win and cover with the over.

Indianapolis Colts 8-4-0
Versus
Las Vegas Raiders 7-5-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Check out D.J. Chuck. Aka Tracy Porter from the Draft Utopia podcast. He does his own radio show on Spreaker that's worth a listen.


Listen to "Dj Chuck" on Spreaker.


Why the Indianapolis Colts Will Win: Philip Rivers balled out against Houston even without Anthony Castonzo at left tackle last week thanks to the stellar wide receiver play of T.Y. Hilton and rookie Michael Pittman Jr. who took the number two receiver job from Parris Campbell. Indianapolis barely won that game and only prevailed because Deshaun Watson coughed up the football while the Texans were at the Colts two yard line. Indianapolis barely got by a Texans team that did not have Will Fuller due to suspension, Randall Cobb due to injuries, and cut Kenny Stills. Brandin Cooks got injured in that game as well. These playmakers that Las Vegas has will test them, but if Josh Jacobs is out, then Indianapolis will cover these receivers and try to take them out of the game by daring the Raiders to beat Indianapolis on the ground with Devontae Booker.


Why the Las Vegas Raiders Will Win: Calling Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders play the last two weeks sloppy would be nothing short of an understatement. Carr was clutch last week thanks to New York Jets defensive coordinator Greg Williams. Henry Ruggs III, Hunter Renfrow, and tight end Darren Waller have to step up against the Colts defensive backs. Xavier Rhodes and Rock Ya-Sin are talented enough to limit what these two do. At the same time, one big play through the air from Carr could be the difference in this game.


Anthony Castonzo is still injured at left tackle. Clellin Ferrell had 2 sacks in the win against the Jets getting by New York Jets left tackle Mehki Becton. Maxx Crosby is also on this pass rush so without Castonzo at left tackle for the Colts, and Rivers not practicing due to a toe injury, that makes me feel extremely confident that the Raiders can beat the Colts. The Raiders beat the Colts 31-24 in Indianapolis when their offense was at full health with Jacoby Brissett at quarterback in Lucas Oil Stadium. This is also the first time all season that quarterback Philip Rivers, left tackle Anthony Castonzo, and right end Justin Houston, their star 4-3 pass rusher all missed a practice on the same day.


That's one reason why I love the Raiders this week. Another reason I like the Raiders is because the Colts have 12 players injured and only four of those twelve players participated in limited practice on Wednesday. Rivers is projected to score more Fantasy points than Carr, but Carr has an extra day of prep on Carr, and if Josh Jacobs is ruled inactive, I'll probably end up starting Carr over Rivers in a game that may decide my Fantasy Football fate this year because both quarterbacks are on my 2QB team along with Tom Brady.


Final reason for picking the Raiders. Las Vegas just activated right tackle Trent Brown off of the Covid-19 list and he is practicing. Josh Jacobs is a game-time decision, but he practiced today after not practicing on Wednesday so it sounds like Las Vegas will have their offense back at full health for the final four games of the season while both of the Colts offensive tackles have injuries to deal with.


Prediction: Indianapolis enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $100 dollars, the maximum bet is $120 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 51.5. Right now 51% of the betting action is on Las Vegas at +3.5. I like Las Vegas to win and cover with the over.

Chris Ransom's Pick


Speaking of Bill Clinton. Every week leading up to the College Football Playoff we will have Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff where Bill Clinton ranks the top 4 teams in College Football.


Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff Selection Special



  1. Alabama Crimson Tide

    Alabama wants revenge on Clemson for what happened two years ago. Nick Saban is the biggest pimp in College Football once again now that Dabo Swinney lost to Notre Dame.





  2. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

    Notre Dame is playing in the ACC Temporarily. Ian Book can learn a lot by facing good defenses in the ACC.





  3. Clemson Tigers

    Clemson has been to two championships with Trevor Lawrence. Trevor Lawrence missed the last two games with Covid-19. He should be back for Clemson as the Tigers hope to win out. Yahoo Man!



  4. Previous Rank 4th



  5. Ohio State Buckeyes

    With the Big 10 officially ending their strike. Ohio State is number four in the polls and no longer Kevin Warren's bitch as the Big 10 commissioner finally came to his senses.



  6. Previous Rank 3rd




Why the Washington Football Team Will Win: Alex Smith has a chance to beat the team that drafted him first overall. Washington just defeated the previously undefeated Pittsburgh Steelers. That is why I love their odds. San Francisco has not faced a pass rush with Chase Young at 4-3 right end, Da'Ron Payne at 4-3 defensive tackle, Jonathan Allen at 4-3 defensive tackle, and Ryan Kerrigan at 4-3 left end with Montez Sweat for depth.


Why the San Francisco 49ers Will Win: Richard Sherman has to blanket Terry McLaurin with San Francisco having backups at defensive end, tight end, and quarterback. Washington lost their first game of the year to the Cardinals in Arizona and now face the 49ers in Arizona.


Prediction: San Francisco enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $100 dollars, the maximum bet is $120 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43. Right now 52% of the betting action is on San Francisco at -3. I like Washington to win and cover with the over.

New Orleans Saints 10-2-0
Versus
Philadelphia Eagles 3-8-1


Chris Ransom's Pick


All ten teams in the BFFL League have team logos. I'll use this section to rank where the 10 teams stand on Yahoo.



  1. Kerryon My Wayward Son 12-1

    Riley, the owner of RES Express rebranded his team as Kerryon My Wayward Son after replacing Anti-Bantle two years ago. This team started 1-0 last year too and was third behind H.B. Vinegar's Strokes and myself a year ago. This time they had 194.76 points thanks to having Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers at quarterback in a two quarterback league. Wilson and Rodgers were the top fantasy performers at quarterback in week 1. They beat Millenial Menace in week 2. They defeated my team in week 3 despite entering the week as underdogs. They defeated H.B. Vinegar's Strokes in week 4 and won two games that they were projected to lose. Kerryon My Wayward Son is 12-1 and has the top seed secured when the BFFL Playoffs begin next week.






  2. The Chosen Ones 10-3

    Our league commissioner lost Bantle Bowl I to Jimmy before winning Bantle Bowl II against Jimmy. He made it to Bantle Bowl IV two years ago and lost to Mitch. He made it to Bantle Bowl V where he lost to Mitch again before defeating him in this years season opener. Jason defeated my team in week 2 and H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes, who had the leagues best record a year ago. Jason defeated all three playoff teams from last year in the first three weeks and managed to get off to an 8-2 start. Jason swept my team which was injured to improve to 9-2 on the year. Jason improved to 10-2 before losing to Team Mouserat. Jason Bantle's team, the Chosen One's is 10-3 and officially has the 2 seed secured thanks to Kansas City lying about the game-time status of Clyde Edwards-Helaire.






  3. Team Mouserat 8-5

    Mark got the 4 seed two years ago. Mark is now 8-5 and has the three seed with one game left. He lost both of his top two draft choices Saquon Barkley and Odell Beckham Jr. to season ending injuries and still managed to put together a contender. This team managed to win without Barkley, but with Odell Beckham Jr. out for the year, it will be an uphill battle as this team got swept by Gangster Squad. Mark has won two in a row since being projected to go 6-8. Mark can make the playoffs with a win over the top seed Kerryon My Wayward Son which would lock up the 3 seed for Team Mouserat. The other way for Mark's team to make the playoffs is for him to lose and for Avengers to defeat H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes. Mark would be the 4 seed if I beat Car RamRod and the 3 seed if Kerm manages to sweep me in the event that Mark loses to Riley.



  4. Previous Rank 4th




  5. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes 7-6

    H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes began the year with 204.24 points putting up a clinic against the Avengers. Not even the Justice League could help Avengers deal with this team. Heath used a keeper on Alvin Kamara his signature player from last season before drafting DaVante Adams in the second round who had a mind boggling 41.6 fantasy points in week 1 before missing week 3 with an injury. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes is now second in the league in scoring after getting swept by my team last week. Avengers is also favored to beat H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes. A win gets Avengers in the playoffs. Losing to Avengers would eliminate Heath from this years playoffs with my team at 7-6 and Kerm's team at 7-6 playing each other this week.



  6. Previous Rank 3rd




  7. Gangster Squad 7-6

    I am 7-6 now after sweeping H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes. This team started 1-4 and won five in a row to get to 6-4 before losing to Jason again and Mitch in an upset. Gangster Squad faces Car RamRod who defeated me back in week 1. My team has so many more additions from the waiver wire. I usually rely on my drafting, but I've been more proactive with the waiver wire and it paid off. I could also have my team back at full health for the playoffs if I win while either Team MouseRat or H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes loses their final games.






  8. Car RamRod 7-6

    Andrew Kermish one of the co hosts from our podcast is 7-6. Kerm is doing better than the Dallas Cowboys who happen to be his favorite NFL team. Car RamRod handed Kerryon My Wayward Son their first loss of the year in week 8. He also handed me my first loss of the year back in week 1 and plays my team in week 14 in a game that will decide the final playoff spot in the BFFL for this season. Kerm was projected to lose in week 1, but won. Andrew was favored against me when Tom Brady was on his bye week.






  9. Millenial Menace 5-8

    Barenaked Ladies needs to sue the owner of Millenial Menace for copyright infrindgement. Still this logo is less offensive than the Washington Redskins logo. Millenial Menace is ranked seventh in the league despite using copyright infrindgement on one of the best bands from the 90's with Barenaked Nadies who had hit songs like One Week and It's All Been Done from their Stunt album in 1998. This team could end up using keepers on quarterbacks Deshaun Watson in the second round and wide receiver Christian Kirk in the seventeenth round.






  10. Avengers 3-10

    Avengers made Bantle Bowl III. They also draft well in 2020, but cut guys like Drew Lock, Justin Tucker, and Zach Ertz. Avengers can use a first round keeper on Patrick Mahomes, but with running back options like Derrick Henry, Christian McCaffrey, Alvin Kamara, and Dalvin Cook, I doubt they use a keeper on Mahomes in the first round. I'm guessing Avengers will either use a second round keeper on Chris Godwin or a fourth round keeper on Keenan Allen with their fourteenth round keeper on quarterback Justin Herbert.





  11. Brees Nutz 3-10

    Mitch Pabst owner of Brees Nutz became the first owner to three peat as Bantle Bowl Champion winning Bantle Bowl III, IV, and V. This 3-10 team is probably going to use a ninth round keeper on Jarvis Landry and a tenth round keeper on Baker Mayfield. They could also use a second round keeper on Julio Jones, a fourth round keeper on Todd Gurley if he re-signs with the Falcons, or a seventh round keeper on Tyler Boyd. Mitch has until the Summer to decide with a lot of possibilities to explore.



  12. Previous Rank 9th



  13. Taco Corp 3-10

    Taco Corp does not look like a playoff team on paper. Taco Corp had another bad draft, and I think their season is over. They are now tenth in the league standings. Taco Corp will probably use a second round keeper on Nick Chubb. The only other player worthy of a keeper on this god awful roster is James Conner who may be worthy of a sixth round pick.






Why the New Orleans Saints Will Win: Nobody knows if Taysom Hill or Drew Brees plays. Taysom Hill is 3-0 as the backup to Brees, but Brees is eligible to return on Friday.


Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win: Jalen Hurts is making his first start of the year on Sunday. The Eagles do not have Andre Dillard at left tackle, Lane Johnson at right tackle, or Brandon Brooks at right guard.


Prediction: New Orleans enters as a 6.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $260 dollars, the maximum bet is $320 dollars with the average gambler betting around $290 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44. Right now 60% of the betting action is on New Orleans at -6.5. Take New Orleans to win and cover with the over.

Chris Ransom's Pick


Joseph Potter, the co-host of my podcast relaunched Draft Evolution. Check them out.


Why the Atlanta Falcons Will Win: Atlanta still has an outside shot at the playoffs. The Chargers on the other hand are eliminated. That's why I'm taking Atlanta.


Why the Los Angeles Chargers Will Win: Justin Herbert needs a bounce back game against Atlanta after a horrible game against New England if he wants to win offensive rookie of the year. Anthony Lynn should be fired on the spot if he cannot beat an interim head coach at home despite being eliminated from this years playoffs.


Prediction: Atlanta enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 49.5. Right now 60% of the betting action is on Atlanta at -2.5. I like Los Angeles to win and to cover with the over.

Green Bay Packers 9-3-0
Versus
Detroit Lions 5-7-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I posted a film cut of BYU quarterback Zach Wilson VS Boise State. Find out why Wilson is one of the best quarterbacks in this draft.




Why the Green Bay Packers Will Win: Green Bay will not have to worry about Kenny Golladay at wide receiver or Jeffrey Okudah at cornerback. Okudah led Detroit with 7 tackles while Adams was limited to 3 receptions for 36 receiving yards when Desmond Trufant was injured. Trufant may be able to keep Adams to under 100 receiving yards, but he won't limit him to 36 like Okudah did. Green Bay was able to execute at a high level defensively since Jaire Alexander, their best corner didn't have a receiver of Kenny Golladay's caliber to test him. Green Bay won that game 42-21 in Lambeau Field. Running back Aaron Jones went off in that game and I expect Jones to have another strong game against Detroit.


Why the Detroit Lions Will Win: Detroit may have been my pick to win this game at home if they had Okudah, Golladay, or a good right tackle. They moved a defensive lineman to right tackle and he did well against Khalil Mack last week. D'Andre Swift practiced the last two days. Darrell Bevell beat this Packers team in the NFC Championship in Seattle when he was Pete Carroll's offensive coordinator prior to Super Bowl 49 as well as the offensive coordinator of the Seattle team that won Super Bowl 48. He's 1-0 as a head coach and Stafford said he brought way more energy without throwing Patricia under the bus. If Detroit was at full health, they'd be my pick to pull the upset. Green Bay will do just enough to get by in this game though.


Prediction: Green Bay enters as a 7.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $300 dollars, the maximum bet is $400 dollars with the average gambler betting around $350 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 55. Right now 53% of the betting action is on Detroit at +7.5. I like Green Bay to win and Detroit to cover with the under.


Final Score Packers 21 Lions 20

Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Will Win: Pittsburgh is coming off of their first loss of the year. I bet they are watching film on last years Sunday Night loss to Buffalo at Heinz Field where the Bills beat Pittsburgh. Also that Bills team had a much stronger offensive line. This team moved righ tackle Cody Ford over to left guard when they cut Quinton Spain and Ford is out for the season too. Cameron Heyward and Stephon Tuitt at 3-4 defensive end have an advantage over Buffalo's guards. T.J. Watt or Alex Hightower whoever is facing Buffalo's right tackle will have an advantage against Buffalo's right tackle. Pittsburgh's offensive line will keep Buffalo's edge rushers in check with Alejandro Villanueva and Chukwuma Okorafor dominating in pass protection at offensive tackle. The real chess match in the trenches will feature Pittsburgh's interior offensive line versus Buffalo's defensive tackles.


Why the Buffalo Bills Will Win: Joe Haden's biggest weakness is zone coverage. If Buffalo puts Stefon Diggs or Gabriel Davis on Haden, and then puts Davis or Diggs in the slot with Cole Beasley on the outside then they have an outside shot to beat Pittsburgh. If Josh Allen puts together another 300 yard game through the air while avoiding turnovers, then Buffalo can live up to the hype as favorites in this game and defeat Pittsburgh. Buffalo will only go as far as Josh Allen and their defense takes them. Allen should have more passing yards than Roethlisberger, but he needs to win the turnover battle too if the Bills want to gain a game as well as a head-to-head tiebreaker over Pittsburgh. Pittsburgh leads the league in sacks, and no quarterback has had a 300 passing yard game on the NFL's top ranked pass defense in 2020. Allen is one guy who could buck this trend which is why Buffalo is favored.


Prediction: Buffalo enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47. Right now 52% of the betting action is on Pittsburgh at +2.5. Take Buffalo to win and cover with the over.

Baltimore Ravens 7-5-0
Versus
Cleveland Browns 9-3-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I just cannot stand ESPN's Monday Night Football Coverage. Monday Night Football On KDKA is back with Bob Pompieni, Mark Madden, Andrew Filiponi, and newcommer Rich Walsh. Tonight the gang is in Cleveland.


Pompieni: Welcome to Monday Night Football. Bob Pompieni along with Mark Madden, Andrew Filiponi, and Rich Walsh covering ESPN Monday Night Football on KDKA from Cleveland. Mark what are your thoughts on this game?

Madden: Remember when I said fuck the Cowboys and fuck the Ravens on Tuesday Night Football? Fuck the Ravens hard and fuck the Browns even harder.

Filiponi: Do you have to be that obnoxious? You're going to get us kicked out of First Energy Stadium.

Walsh: First Energy Stadium was used in the Movie Draft Day. First Energy Stadium is almost as old as Heinz Field. It's not as epic as Heinz though.

Pompieni: Indeed Rich Walsh. Baltimore destroyed Cleveland back in week 1 when both teams were at full health. I'm taking the Browns though since Baltimore is more injured now.

Madden: I'm picking Baltimore to win. Fuck the hype machine that is the Cleveland Browns. Lamar Jackson the reigning MVP not the overrated first pick in the 2018 NFL Draft takes care of business.

Pompieni: Tonight's game is brought to you by the First Energy. Official stadium sponsor of the Cleveland Browns.

Madden: No tonights game is brought to the Cleveland Indians. Like the Browns, they had their own movie about them too.

Pompieni: Alright let's get set for kickoff. We'll be back with kickoff after we show you commercials on First Energy and the Cleveland Indians.



Why the Baltimore Ravens Will Win: Lamar Jackson did just enough to win against the leagues worst run defense on Tuesday Night Football. Not having Ronnie Stanley against this Browns defensive line will hurt. Baltimore activated tight end Mark Andrews. Marques Brown, Miles Boykin, Devin Duvernay, and James Proche must step up if Denzel Ward is out again.


Why the Cleveland Browns Will Win: Myles Garrett will not have to deal with Ronnie Stanley. The offensive tackle matchup of Jedrick Wills Jr. and Jack Conklin faces Yannick Ngakoue and Matt Judon off the edge. Baltimore has a cornerback trio of Marcus Peters, Jimmy Smith, and Marlon Humphrey when healthy. Smith missed two games against New England and Dallas which Baltimore went 1-1 in. Jimmy Smith and Denzel Ward were both out at cornerback in week 13. Smith has a better chance of returning for week 14 than Ward.


Prediction: Baltimore enters as a 1 point favorite. The minimum bet is $105 dollars, the maximum bet is $115 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47. Right now 54% of the betting action is on Cleveland at +1. I like Cleveland to win and cover with the under.
