Let’s assume every NFL franchise made Santa’s “nice” list—even Cleveland. With the holidays edging closer, here is what each NFL team should ask for this Christmas.
BetAmerica analyst Scott Shapiro takes a deep dive on Patriots-Bengals, Bears-Packers, Jaguars-Raiders, Rams-Cowboys and more.
On Sunday one team reclaimed the top spot in the NFC, while last year's Super Bowl winner continued to spiral downward. With three weeks to go in the 2019 NFL regular season, here are five takeaways from Week 14.
The New England Patriots’ third loss in five games has bettors turning their backs on the defending champion’s chances of winning the Super Bowl. The Patriots’ Super Bowl odds have more than doubled at BetAmerica since Week 9, ballooning from +190 prior to their loss to the Ravens to +395 following Sunday’s 23-17 loss to the Kansas City Chiefs.
This weekend’s late afternoon slate gives us a rematch of last season’s AFC Championship game, and a matchup between the second and third favorites to win the AFC this season per BetAmerica’s futures. New England (+160 to win the conference) will host Kansas City (+550) on Sunday afternoon in a game that will see one of the greatest quarterbacks in NFL history face off against one of one of the league’s future faces.
Tom Brady has won the NFL MVP Award three times in his celebrated career, but it appears unlikely that he’ll add a fourth one to his mantle this year. The Patriots QB has seen his MVP odds rise from +1600 at the beginning of the season to +15000 today.
We are at the quarter pole in the 2019 National Football League season, and as they turn for home, it is Lamar Jackson and the Ravens who are the current favorites (+250 on BetAmerica) to hoist the Vince Lombardi Trophy.
For the first time since they won their sixth Super Bowl, the New England Patriots are no longer favorites to win the 2020 NFL Championship. Following Week 13 of the NFL, the high-flying Baltimore Ravens have replaced the Patriots at the top of Super Bowl betting, moving from +410 to +275 with BetAmerica. Just four weeks ago, BetAmerica players were still able to take odds of +1800 for the Ravens to win the Super Bowl.
A pair of NFC heavyweights will butt heads on Sunday afternoon when the San Francisco 49ers head into the heart of Louisiana take on the New Orleans Saints. Both teams have identical 10-2 records, but the momentum belongs to the Saints, who have won three straight and looked sharp in avenging an earlier season loss to Atlanta on Thanksgiving. We have odds and analysis for their eagerly anticipated grudge match well as the biggest Week 14 trends and storylines from around the National Football League.
The Patriots appear to be a bargain as three-point road favorites as they take on the Texans this Sunday night at NRG Stadium. New England’s defense is clearly the best in the league this season and might be the best unit Bill Belichick has ever had during his illustrious tenure in Foxboro. The Pats are allowing just 10.6 points per game and have surrendered more than 14 points only once in 2019.
