Denver Broncos (+3) at Los Angeles Chargers: Bet Now
Most weeks, the early action would be jumping on the team coming off the win rather than betting on the side fresh from a loss. But the Los Angeles Chargers‘ 6-0 “victory” in New England was… gross.
Los Angeles snapped a three-game losing skid with that hockey score and has managed a combined 36 points in its past three games. The Bolts are back home in SoFi Stadium hosting the Denver Broncos, who had their five-game streak stunted by a 22-17 defeat in Houston.
A bad first half had Denver battling from behind in the second, but at least the Broncos did something with the football. And the Denver defense kept things close, holding its seventh straight opponent to 22 points or less.
This AFC West rivalry opened with L.A. as a 3-point home favorite but the vig is shifting and showing a potential move off the key number of a field goal. If you’re buying into the Broncos — or balking on the Bolts — grab Denver +3 now.

Philadelphia Eagles (+3) at Dallas Cowboys: Bet Later
The Philadelphia Eagles got embarrassed in front of the Philly faithful on Sunday as their defense did not have an answer for San Francisco in a 42-19 ass-waxing.
Philadelphia is in the midst of one of the worst stretches of schedule I’ve ever seen, playing a murder’s row of Super Bowl-contending foes since Week 7.
Next up: the Dallas Cowboys.
Not only are the Cowboys on a four-game winning streak since losing 28-23 at Philly in Week 9 but much like the 49ers this past Sunday, Dallas is enjoying a 10-day mini-bye after beating Seattle on Thursday.
The Eagles’ Week 13 loss, a Jalen Hurts concussion scare, and the Cowboys’ rest edge have this opener trending upward. The Cowboys are 3-point home chalk with the vig ticking as high as -120 on Sunday night.
If you’re still fond of Philadelphia, wait it out. Some sharper books showed Eagles +3.5 and the rest of the market will likely follow. But be quick. That half-point hook will get bought up like discount Apple Watches.
Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers (Over 45): Bet Now
The San Francisco 49ers just went into Philly and flattened one of the best defenses in the land for 42 points on 456 yards. That effort nearly topped the closing total of 46.5 points by itself.
This week, San Francisco faces a much softer stop unit at home.
The Seattle Seahawks come to the Bay Area, having allowed 72 total points in its last two games — one of which was a 31-13 turkey stuffing from the 49ers that went Over the 43-point number on Thanksgiving Thursday.
The Seahawks offense showed up this past Thursday, posting 35 points against the Cowboys… yet somehow didn’t win. Seattle has gone Over the total in three of its last four games.
Bookies opened as low as 45 and that total is ticking upwards, with some shops dealing 46 points. Grab the lowest number you can and bet the Over now.

Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins (Under 47): Bet Later
The Over has been almost an auto-bet for Miami Dolphins games this season. Miami has the horses to threaten most totals on its own. However, the Dolphins defense is starting to stake its claim and that could hold value for the Under in Week 14.
This Over/Under total against the Tennessee Titans opened at 46.5 and is climbing on Sunday night. If you wonder about the Under, wait and see if this keeps going before buying back the bigger number.
Miami has checked its last three foes to scores of 13, 13, and 15 points and ranks No. 1 in EPA allowed per play since Week 8. As for the Fins’ scoring output, it’s a bit skewed with the defense finding the end zone the past two games.
This Tennessee offense is struggling and really stinks away from home, averaging only 12.3 points per road game. The Titans also run one of the most methodical paces in the NFL, ranked 31st in seconds per snap and 24th in points per play. And you have a rookie QB in Will Levis trying to decipher Vic Fangio’s sleight-of-hand defense.
Tennessee’s defense is dreadful, which is helping pump this total up. But there could be a tipping point for this total, so wait and get the Under on the inflated O/U.
