Canucks Unable to Win On The Road

Ryan Miller Vancouver Canucks

If the Vancouver Canucks expect to be a legitimate playoff caliber team, they will need to start getting it done on the road. Since the start of November the Canucks have just two wins in 11 games away from Vancouver. It will not be easy for the Canucks to rectify the situation Sunday as they visit the Chicago Blackhawks.

The Canucks offense has been a two-man show once again with the Sedin twins combining for 62 points and a +12 rating through 30 games. Vancouver has allowed the ninth most goals in the NHL this season with goalie Ryan Miller posting a pedestrian .914 save percentage.

You can’t talk about the Blackhawks without talking about Patrick Kane who leads the NHL in goals and points. If Kane puts up a point tonight he will extend his streak to 26 consecutive games with at least one point, which would be the longest streak since Mats Sundin hit 30 in 1992-92.

Chargers in Rare Territory in Week 14

Chargers Rivers

Just how rough are things for the San Diego Chargers right now? The Bolts, who travel to Kansas City for a date with the Chiefs in Week 14, opened as 10-point underdogs for the tilt—just the third time since 2004 they’ve been tabbed as double-digit dogs. San Diego covered the spread on both of those occasions (Oct. 18, 2015 at Green Bay and Dec. 12, 2013 at Denver).

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The total has gone OVER in three of the Chiefs' last four games as favorites.</li>
<li>The Chargers are 5-1 SU in their last six games against the Chiefs in December.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in six of the Chargers' last eight games as underdogs.</li>
</ul>

As bad as the Chargers have been, it’s been a much different story for K.C. The Chiefs have won six straight games after starting the season 1-5, becoming a sizzling bet during that span in the form of six covers in a row. 

San Diego doesn’t have the best track record versus the Chiefs, as Philip Rivers and company have gone 0-4 ATS in their last four meetings with Kansas City.

Falcons’ ATS Skid Reaching Ugly Levels

A month into the NFL season, Atlanta and Carolina were tied for the NFC South lead with a pair of 4-0 records. But the division rivals proceeded to go in entirely different directions once the calendar turned to October, as the Falcons sit at 6-6 SU and the Panthers are a perfect 12-0. They’ll renew acquaintances Sunday in Charlotte.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The Falcons are 1-4 SU in their last five games against the Panthers.</li>
<li>The Panthers are 13-4-1 ATS in their last 18 games at home in December.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in five of the Falcons' last six games as underdogs.</li>
</ul>

The Falcons have been underperforming both on the field and at the betting window. Matt Ryan and company are riding an ugly eight-game ATS skid ahead of the matchup.

Another trend working in Carolina’s favor is the impact home field advantage has had in this series. In the last five meetings between the Panthers and Falcons, home sides are 4-1 ATS.

Steelers Have Had Success in Cincy

Paul Brown Stadium has been far from friendly territory for many NFL teams, but there is one opponent that has continually found success in Cincinnati—the Pittsburgh Steelers. The Steelers are 9-2 ATS in their last 11 games against the Bengals in Cincy, and will be looking to make it 10-2 for their bettors in Week 14.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The total has gone UNDER in five of the Bengals' last six games.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in six of the Steelers' last seven games as underdogs.</li>
<li>The Steelers are 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five games as road underdogs in December.</li>
</ul>

In the wake of back-to-back defeats by Houston and Arizona, the Bengals have rebounded thanks to victories over St. Louis and Cleveland to sit at 10-2 SU and a sizzling 10-1-1 ATS on the season—good enough to make Andy Dalton’s crew the best bet in the league.

The Steelers have made a habit of hitting their stride in December in recent years, posting a perfect 8-0 ATS record in their last eight games in the month.

NFL Week 14 OddsShark Computer Picks

Houston Texans JJ Watt

Even since releasing Ryan Mallett and giving the offense over to Brian Hoyer, the Houston Texans have been on-fire. The Texans are 4-1 in their past five games while outscoring opponents by nearly a touchdown per game. The OddsShark Super Computer seems to be a believer in the Texans as it has tabbed them to beat the New England Patriots 23.3-20.3 Sunday.

Redskins Have Been Brutal on the Road

Washington Redskins Kirk Cousins

When the Chicago Bears started the season 0-3, it would be been farfetched to believe they’d be favored in any game this year. But with the Washington Redskins in town for a Week 14 showdown, oddsmakers opened the Bears as 3.5-point favorites.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Bears' last 10 games.
  • The Redskins are 0-9 SU in their last nine games on the road.
  • This is only the second time this season the Bears have been a favorite.

The ‘Skins have historically enjoyed facing the Monsters of the Midway, going 6-2 SU and a sizzling 7-1 ATS in their last eight versus the Bears. Chicago has not been showing up in December in recent years (0-7 SU, 2-5 ATS in their previous 7 December contests) which certainly won’t instill any confidence in Chicago backers.

A major reason for the oddsmakers’ decision to favor the Bears in this one is the Redskins’ awful road record in 2015. Washington (5-7 SU) is winless away from home this year, covering just once during that span.

Colts Have Had Jags’ Number Lately

Colts NFL

To say the AFC South is looking like an absolute crapshoot would be a massive understatement, and the Indianapolis Colts will have an opportunity to gain some much-needed ground on the Houston Texans by facing off against the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 14.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The Jaguars are 8-22 SU in their last 30 games at home.</li>
<li>The Colts are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games after a loss.</li>
<li>The Jaguars are 5-1 ATS in their last six games after losing their previous game.</li>
</ul>

Indy (6-6 SU, ATS) is currently tied with the Texans for the division lead and has historically performed well versus the Jags. The Colts are 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS in their last six meetings with Jacksonville.

Total bettors take note—the Jaguars have been a solid source of OVERs lately due to their penchant for participating in a lot of high-scoring games. The OVER has gone 6-2 in the Jags’ last eight contests.

Faves Cashing Between Packers-Cowboys

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers

Just when they looked down and out, the Dallas Cowboys pulled out a huge 19-16 victory over the Washington Redskins in Monday Night Football last week to pull within one game of the NFC East division lead. Considering the ‘Skins, Eagles and Giants are all tied at 5-7 that’s nothing to write home about, but a win over the suddenly perplexing Green Bay Packers in Week 14 would go a long way in keeping their playoff hopes alive.

Shark Bites
  • The Cowboys are 4-11 SU and ATS in their last 15 games against the NFC North division.
  • The Packers are 13-2 SU in their last 15 games at home.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Packers' last nine games.

The Packers needed a last second Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary that’s been dubbed the “Miracle in Motown” to top the Detroit Lions and improve to 8-4 on the season. The Pack have been anything but consistent lately, however, and it’s hard to tell what you’re going to get out of this club going forward.

It’s a big sample size, but the favored team is 17-3 SU and 15-5 ATS in the last 20 meetings between the Cowboys and Packers. Most sportsbooks opened the Pack as 7.5-point favorites for the tilt.

OAK-DEN Betting Preview

Denver Broncos Von Miller

The Denver Broncos have a different look these days under young signal caller Brock Osweiler, but the experiment has worked out so far. Denver has won each of his first two starts after replacing future Hall of Famer Peyton Manning and will be seeking to make it three in a row in Week 14 against the Oakland Raiders.

Shark Bites
  • The Broncos are 13-2 SU and 12-3 ATS in their last 15 games in December.
  • The Raiders are 2-11 SU in their last 13 games against their division.
  • The Raiders are 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games after an ATS loss.

Denver has been the Kryptonite for the Raiders in recent years. The Raiders have dropped each of their last eight meetings with Denver. The Broncos certainly have made a habit of performing well against their division, going 8-1 ATS in their previous nine against AFC West opponents.

The Raiders opened as 7.5-point underdogs at sportsbooks, which will appeal to UNDER bettors. In the Raiders’ last 11 games when tabbed as underdogs, the UNDER is a sizzling 10-1.
