Welcome back for Week 14 of the 2020 NFL season. We’re looking at a somewhat normal week of the NFL schedule. After a couple weeks of Covid-19 delays, it would appear Week 14 will happen on schedule.
Last week wasn’t great, but I suppose .500 is OK, going 7-7 with my picks and 3-2 with my five best bets of the weekend. It improves me to 88-101-2 on total picks and 33-31 on my best bets. I did not make a pick for Cowboys-Ravens. A year ago, I went 131-117-4, finishing with a 52.78 win percentage. That’s barely turning a profit, but for a season’s worth of picks, that’s not too bad. I did not track my best bet percentage over the course of the season, but will make sure to do that this year.
I’m going to pick my five “best bets” each week, similar to what you might use in the DraftKings Pro Football Pick ‘Em National Championship. Lines are moving so some of the lines below will be different from what you see on game day. Look for value where you can!
In the meantime, here are my five picks of choice for this weekend:
Panthers (-3) over Broncos
Chiefs (-7) over Dolphins
Jets (+13.5) over Seahawks
Chargers (+2.5) over Falcons
Bills (-2.5) over Steelers
