‘Pro Football Handle’: NFL Week 14 Breakdown, Rams-Bears Clash, Cowboys-Eagles Fight for NFC EastBy Brett Smiley | Published: December 6, 2018 at 11:00 am
On The Pro Football Handle, brought to you by PropSwap.com, Las Vegas-based sports talk voice Matt Perrault and veteran bookmaker Robert Walker of USBookmaking dive into select NFL games, line movements and bookmaker liabilities, plus greater sports betting topics and stories that may have nothing to do with football. Walker has seen it all behind the counter and Perrault the same from behind the microphone, so they’ll have you prepared for anything.
Welcome to Week 14! This week Walker emphasizes that the ‘Under’ may be smart money, but life’s too short to bet the under. And we learn that if the Houston Texans win 13 games in a row, Perrault will walk the Vegas strip with a sandwich board reading “I am a moron.” Tune in for a full rundown of the Week 14 slate.

9:44 — Jacksonville Jaguars +4.5 at Tennessee Titans — With a total at 37.5, books aren’t expecting much of a show.
10:36 — Indianapolis Colts +4.5 at Texas Houstons — Colts may be the smart bet but if the Texans continue to win, we get to see Perrault publicly embarrass himself. Go Texans?
14:13 — Baltimore Ravens +6.5 at Kansas City Chiefs — the line has plummeted. Is it the Lamar Jackson effect? Or does the loss of KC RB Kareem Hunt have a bigger impact than initially thought?
19:06 — Carolina Panthers -2 at Cleveland Browns — Carolina is atrocious on the road, this line is a fade on Cleveland.
21:52 — Atlanta Falcons +5 at Green Bay Packers — The Falcons have nothing to play for, but will the Packers rally or fold for interim head coach Joe Philbin?
6:36 — New Orleans Saints -8 at Tampa Buccaneers — The over is the safest bet for this game.
30:42 — New England Patriots -7.5 at Miami Dolphins — Careful, the Pats historically stink in Miami.
31:20 — N.Y Jets +3.5 at Buffalo Bills — these teams are too bad for one to crush the other.
34:37 — L.A. Rams +3 at Chicago Bears — Game of the weekend. The public is loving the Bears, but they aren’t one of the elite teams of 2018. The Rams are.
38:19 — Philadelphia Eagles +3.5 at Dallas Cowboys and N.Y. Giants -3.5 at Washington Redskins — NFC East showdowns: public teams and public money.
41:12 — Denver Broncos -4 at San Francisco 49ers — The line continues to come down, so if you lik San Fran, wait.
43:08 — Cincinnati Bengals +14 at L.A. Chargers — The Bengals are in a tailspin, but 14 is a lot of points in the NFL.
45:26 — Pittsburgh Steelers -10.5 at Oakland Raiders — Pros are driving the line down. Could Oakland really be the play here?
51:07 — Minnesota Vikings +3 at Seattle Seahawks — Doesn’t matter the opponent, everyone wants the Seahawks now.
