Wins and losses this time of the season in the NFL can mean the difference between earning a spot in the playoffs or simply moving up higher in next year’s draft. When it comes to betting on the games at BetAnySports, wins and losses against the spread can mean the difference between a healthy betting bankroll and another football season in the red.
Sports bettors riding the favorites in Week 14 came out on top with teams such as Kanas City, Pittsburgh and Tampa Bay extending their winning streaks both straight up and against the spread. The Chiefs got the ball rolling with a big seven-point win against rival Oakland last Thursday night as 3.5-point home favorites. Kansas City has now won its last three games both SU and ATS to improve to 10-3 SU on the year with a 7-6 overall record ATS.
The Steelers continue to make their move to another AFC North Division title with a four-game winning streak both SU and ATS. They are now a game in front of Baltimore at 8-5 (SU and ATS). They have also been a hot team on BetAnySports’ total line with the total staying UNDER in nine of their first 13 games.
Surprising Tampa Bay has been able to keep pace with Atlanta in the NFC South title race at 8-5 both SU and ATS on the strength of a five-game winning streak (SU and ATS). The Buccaneers knocked off rival New Orleans 16-11 this past Sunday to cover as two-point favorites at home. The total has stayed UNDER or ended as a PUSH in their last four games.
One of the hottest betting teams in the NFL heading into Week 15 has actually been out of playoff contention for some time now. Bettors riding the 3-10 Chicago Bears for the past six weeks have cashed in on five of those tickets despite the team’s SU 2-4 record during this same span of games. The Bears have also been a solid total line play with six of their last eight games staying UNDER BetAnySports closing line.
A couple of teams at the bottom of this week’s list would be Philadelphia and Los Angeles. Neither team has been able to cover a spread in the past four weeks. The Eagles are now 5-8 (SU and ATS) on the year and the Rams have fallen to 4-9 (4-8-1 ATS).
