NFL Line Watch Week 14
Spread to bet now
Tennessee Titans (+13.5) @ Denver Broncos
If you like the Titans to keep this one close, then I'd recommend jumping on this line as fast as possible. While you can still get a 13.5 at 5Dimes as of printing, for the most part 12 is the predominating number across the board. It's likely to drop even lower. Tennessee is coming off a hard-fought 22-14 loss in Indianapolis last week and catches a somewhat complacent home side coming off its second victory of the season over division rival Kansas City. As good as Denver is, there is no question that this sets up as a natural "letdown / trap" game for the Broncos, with a contest vs. division rival San Diego next week. While the Titans have struggled for bettors at home this year, they've been a non-stop profit buffet on the road all season, going a near-perfect 5-1 ATS so far. Expect this line to continue to drop as the week wares on.
Spread to wait on
St. Louis Rams (+6) @ Arizona Cardinals
Divisional contests at this time of year are always important. If you think the Rams can bounce back from their 23-13 setback at San Francisco last week and hand the Cardinals a second-straight loss, I'd recommend waiting a bit closer to kick-off before getting involved with this one. This line opened at 6 and while that is pretty much the predominating number across the board as of printing, there is a 6.5 (Pinnacle) and even a 7 (5Dimes) available right now as well. I think this number could go even higher. Bettors are jumping on Arizona as it looks to bounce back from its first loss in four games and to avenge a 27-24 setback in St. Louis in Week 1. With two straight on the road, including a game in Seattle on December 22nd, this contest takes on added importance for the home side. Expect this line to continue to climb as we get closer to kickoff.
Total to watch
Tennessee Titans @ Denver Broncos (50.5)
Once again we look to the Denver Broncos for this week's total to watch. Denver has seen the total go 10-2 this year, 5-1 at home and 5-1 on the road. As mentioned above, the Broncos most recently beat the Chiefs for a second time in the last three weeks, a 35-28 barn-burner, the total sailing above the posted number of 49.5 in that one. This total opened at 50.5, but is already starting to drop, with 50's and even a 49.5 on the board as of printing (5Dimes). Tennessee has seen the total go 2-3-1 on the road so far this year. If you're planning no playing the "under", consider getting involved as soon as possible.

Nick Parsons continues to cause problems for the books. Nick ground out a small profit in MLB yesterday four the fourth day in a row. it should have been much bigger but Cleveland blew a 3 run ninth inning lead. Nick pushed his NBA playoff record to 6-1 with the Bulls win. Nick has three plays up in the NBA, MLB and the NHL for today.
Just two weeks into the season, the streaking Los Angeles Dodgers have opened a six-game lead over the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants. The Dodgers are 9-3 this season and are on a seven game winning streak. Brett Anderson will get the start in game 1. He is 1-0 this season with a 3.27 ERA. He earned his first win with a 5-2 win over Seattle by allowing two runs -- one earned -- in five innings. He is 2-0 record and 1.83 ERA in his last six starts dating to July. Against the Giants, Anderson is 0-2 with a 5.25 ERA in three starts that have all come at AT&T Park.
San Francisco hasn’t been hitting or pitching well over a 1-9 stretch, sinking into last place. The Giants are 4-10 this season. San Francisco is batting .204 in its last four series while averaging 1.9 runs. Buster Posey is in a 4-for-24 slump and Casey McGehee is 2 for 19 without an RBI in his last seven games. Joe Panik is an exception, 9 for 19 in the last four. The rotation has a 4.79 ERA and .290 opponent batting average in the last 10 with Madison Bumgarner, Jake Peavy and Tim Hudson struggling. Chris Heston and Tim Lincecum have balanced it out some.
Lincecum is 0-1 with a 2.25 ERA will get the start. He has a 1-2 record and 6.16 ERA in his last six games in the series.
The Giants and Dodgers play six of their next nine against each other, so there is an immediate opportunity to make up ground after Monday's off day.
Lincecum has been one of the Giants best pitchers this year and will get the job done at home. The Giants have not been hitting the ball well but should be able to score enough to get the win at home at plus money.
Play on San Francisco. This is a (1*) play.
