Sunday Setup: NFL Week 14 Betting

NFL injuries just keep piling up as the toll of a long season weighs down on players. Here’s a look at some of the key NFL injury updates this week as well as a look at one game getting very lopsided betting action.

Injuries galore in Oakland at Green Bay matchup

As Green Bay chases a perfect season, and Oakland fights for its playoff life, neither team will be close to 100% in this Sunday’s game due to injuries. Oakland will be without three of its most explosive players on offense in running back Darren McFadden and wide receivers Jacoby Ford and Denarius Moore. Green Bay won’t have starting running back James Starks or leading tackler Desmond Bishop. The Packers are an 11.5-point favorite at BetOnline.

Andre Johnson officially ruled out for Sunday

After being considered doubtful earlier in the week, Houston’s Andre Johnson was officially ruled out for Sunday’s action on the road against the Cincinnati Bengals. After missing six weeks with a hamstring injury on his right leg, Johnson is now out with a hamstring injury on his left leg. Despite all of the injuries they’ve sustained, the Texans are 6-0 SU and ATS in their last six games. Houston is a 3-point underdog at TopBet.

Major Wright out Sunday for Chicago

Already missing starting quarterback Jay Cutler and running back Matt Forte on offense, Chicago’s defense took a hit as well with safety Major Wright ruled out with a shoulder injury. Going up against a red-hot Denver Broncos team that is 6-1 SU and ATS in its last seven games, having so many key injuries severely hinders Chicago’s chances of winning on the road this week. The Bears are a 3.5-point underdog at 5Dimes.

New York Jets very popular pick over Kansas City

Generally, the most popular sides on the OddsShark matchup reports receive about 70% of bettors' votes on who will cover the spread. In this weekend’s Kansas City at New York Jets matchup, the Jets are receiving a whopping 86% of bettors' votes to win and cover the spread. The Jets opened as a 7-point favorite at Bovada, but are now a 10.5-point favorite as steady action has come in on the popular side. Tyler Palko is expected to start with Kyle Orton doubtful with a finger injury.
