NFL Computer Picks: Week 14 Bets

The NFL prediction computer is backing both underdogs in the two biggest games on the Week 14 betting board.

We’ll start in New Orleans, where the humbled Saints return home to the Mercedes-Benz Superdome, where they have won 14 straight with Drew Brees and Sean Payton on the field. However, there is plenty to be concerned about in New Orleans after Monday night’s ugly performance in a 34-7 loss at Seattle. It had to have been a long plane ride home to New Orleans after taking that beat-down.


Heat look for revenge on the Pistons

The Miami Heat will be looking to get some revenge on the Detroit Pistons on Sunday night as the two teams hit the hardwood together for the second time in the last week.

Detroit upset Miami 107-97 as a 9.5-point road underdog on the NBA betting lines when the teams met for the first time this season on Tuesday night. That improved the Pistons to 6-4 ATS (2-8 SU) in their last 10 games against the Heat.

The Buckeyes began the week as 5.5-point favorites over a defensive-minded Michigan State team that has excelled in the underdog role.

The Spartans are 8-1-1 against the spread in their last 10 games as underdogs and they are getting 5.5 points at books such as Bovada as of Friday.

ACC Title Game, FSU vs Duke Odds

You’ll be hard pressed to find a conference championship game with a larger point spread than this year’s ACC Championship Game between Florida State and Duke.

The Seminoles are 28-point favorites over the upstart Blue Devils, who have never beaten Florida State. But that line could change drastically, if news breaks regarding FSU star quarterback Jameis Winston’s legal status.

Winston is the focus of sexual assault allegations, but charges had not been filed entering the week.

Sooners large underdogs to Cowboys

Oklahoma heads to Oklahoma State as the biggest underdog the Sooners have been against their in-state rivals since at least 1997.

The Cowboys, who can lock up the Big 12 title with a win, opened as 10.5-point favorites over the Sooners. It’s only the fourth time Oklahoma State has been favored in the last 30 Bedlam rivalry games. But Mike Gundy’s squad has clearly been the better team this season.

Pac 12 Final: Stanford takes on ASU

Stanford hammered Arizona State 42-28 at home in a September game that wasn’t as close as the final score indicated. But the Sun Devils are the favorites in a rematch in the Pac-12 Championship Game at Arizona State.

Stanford led 29-0 at halftime of the first meeting. Arizona State scored three quick touchdowns to open the fourth quarter, but never seriously threatened to complete the comeback. Stanford possessed the ball for 11 minutes more than Arizona State.
