The Dallas Cowboys are 16.5-point house favorites in opposition to the in-state "rival" Houston Texans. It’s the biggest level unfold of the NFL season.

We’ll contact on that and much more NFL Week 14 nuggets, in addition to the continuation of the Military-Navy rivalry on the school soccer Week 15 odds board.

Laying a Huge Quantity

Final week, the Cowboys put up a 50-plus burger on the Indianapolis Colts in a prime-time matchup on Sunday Night time Soccer. In order that’s going to make an impression on public/leisure bettors as they usually are likely to guess based mostly on what they noticed final.

"If you find yourself coping with spreads like that in an NFL recreation, it’s very uncommon that anybody sharp is laying the favourite," PlayUp US head of threat Rex Beyers mentioned. "It could be ‘canine or nothing for these guys, even when they've to carry their nostril when hitting the ‘submit’ button."

Certainly. So do yourselves a favor, of us: Don’t guess this recreation on the unfold. Possibly guess on the full-game or first-half whole, or discover a prop guess that you just suppose has some worth.

Lions Favored?

The Sharp Facet

Beyers mentioned PlayUp noticed a little bit of a midweek push from skilled bettors on a few video games.

"The sharpies obtained despatched out on a number of orders earlier this afternoon," Beyers mentioned Wednesday night time. "They triple-popped me in Colorado on Raiders-Rams Beneath 44.5 (-112) for Thursday Night time Soccer.

So Beyers now has the Raiders-Rams whole at 43, and the Philadelphia Eagles at -6.5 in opposition to host New York, in a 1 p.m. ET Sunday FOX recreation.

"And the identical group that guess Raiders-Rams Beneath additionally guess Eagles-Giants Over 44.5 and Dolphins-Chargers Beneath 52.5 (-112) for restrict performs, as nicely," Beyers mentioned.

"We've nice two-way deal with. We’ve been toeing the road from [Eagles] -6.5 and -7," Morrissey mentioned. "We've revered gamers on either side of this one, with Eagles -6.5 and Giants +7 bets."

On our facet of the counter, a pointy bettor I join with every week has just one recreation piquing his curiosity up to now: The aforementioned Vikings-Lions tilt.

"I performed Detroit at choose ‘em. The staff is loaded on offense, with weapons throughout," he mentioned. "Minnesota’s protection is shaky and must be uncovered. At present, it’s the one recreation I actually like."

Navy Matchup

With the remainder of the Soccer Bowl Subdivision both completed with the season or awaiting bowl video games, the Military-Navy recreation will get the massive Saturday highlight. It’s a neutral-site contest at Philadelphia’s Lincoln Monetary Discipline.

Navy (4-7 SU, 7-4 ATS) hasn’t performed since upsetting Central Florida 17-14 on Nov. 19, with the Midshipmen closing as 15.5-point street underdogs. Military (5-6 SU, 6-5 ATS) has gotten a considerable break, too, routing UMass 44-7 as a 20.5-point street favourite on Nov. 26.

WynnBet opened this recreation on Nov. 29 at Military -2 (-105). By Sunday, the Black Knights have been all the way down to -1, and on Tuesday, the road jumped the fence to Navy -1 on the best way to -1.5. As of late Wednesday night time, the Midshipmen are as much as -2.5.
