NFL Betting Results (Week 14)

We’re now through 14 weeks of the 2020-21 NFL season, and although many though it wouldn’t be possible, Covid hasn’t been able to shut it down. If you’ve been following along with me this season, then you know I’ve been having a successful year. My record coming into Week 14 was 109-80-4. Was I able to keep the hot streak alive?

When all was said and done, I ended up going 9-7 in Week 14. Not a dominant week by any means, but still a positive week nonetheless. Cue up the Johnny Drama GIF

Despite 9 wins, I still had 7 losses, so let’s take a closer look at what went wrong in these games

WEEK 14 LOSS RECAPS

PATRIOTS (+6): I started off Week 14 with a loss on Thursday night. My Patriots were facing off against The Los Angeles Rams, and after Week 13’s 45-0 beatdown of The Chargers, I just couldn’t resist backing my team. In Week 12’s blog, I said that I was going to fade The Patriots for the rest of the year. That way, I could win either way (Either my bet would win, or The Patriots would win). I guess I forgot to take my own advice. The truth of the matter is that for the first time in my life, The Patriots aren’t a good football team. Cam can’t throw, our defense isn’t as good as it has been in the past, and we are getting exposed this year. Sucks to see the end of an era, but it is what it is FINAL SCORE: 24-3 RAMS

GIANTS (+3): Vegas set the perfect trap here, and being the idiot that I am, I bit the cheese and got my neck broken. The Giants shocked the country when they traveled to cross-country to Seattle and beat The Seahawks in Week 13, so everybody thought they’d keep that same energy in their own stadium against The Cardinals. I gotta say though, I feel like I got a little duped here. When I made this bet on Saturday, I thought The Giants were starting Colt McCoy again. Not like McCoy is a Hall of Famer or anything, but I think he matched up better against a weak Cardinals secondary than Daniel Jones does. No matter who started though, I overthought the shit out of this game and should have just laid the points with The Cardinals FINAL SCORE: 26-7 CARDINALS

PANTHERS (-3): The Broncos are a team that I just can’t seem to get a read on this season, and I hope I’m not alone. They will have great games where their defense stifles even the most dominant offenses (like Kansas City 2 weeks ago), but their offense is just so inconsistent that I have trouble backing them. I know The Panthers have been without McCaffrey for most of the year, but they’ve managed to cover quite a few times, as Davis has kept the ground game going and Bridgewater and the air attack isn’t half bad either. Unfortunately, Denver was in control the whole game. Panthers made a late surge and put up 17 points in the 4th quarter, but it was too little too late FINAL SCORE: 32-27 BRONCOS

TEXANS (ML): History repeats itself, and I should have used that knowledge when it came to this game. The Bears LOVE to win December games at home when the season is over and it doesn’t matter for them anymore. The Texans have been brutal this year and have been especially awful against the run, and Montgomery has been cooking lately, so that alone should have been all I needed to take Chicago here. But, I’m an idiot, and similar to my Giants pick, I overthought the shit out of this game FINAL SCORE: 36-7 BEARS

PACKERS (-8): This game was looking like an easy cover right up until the end. The Lions were down by 2 scores, and they elected to kick the field goal first and then attempt the onside kick, which cut the deficit to 7 and resulting in a brutal backdoor cover. But hey, The Gambling Gods giveth, and The Gambling Gods taketh away. I say that because this exact same thing happened in the Dolphins/Chiefs game this week and The Dolphins ended up covering for me because of it, so you need to take the good with the bad FINAL SCORE: 31-24 PACKERS

SAINTS (-7): “Be careful what you wish for, because you just might get it”. For weeks now, I’ve been questioning why Wentz is still starting over Hurts. I’m not an Eagles fan or somebody who backs The Eagles regularly or anything, but it just seemed obvious to me that Hurts should be starting instead. Well it finally happened, and it burned me as a result. Even with Hurts in there and Brees still injured, I figured The Saints would cover easily in this game. But it isn’t the -7 bet that hurt the most, it’s the other action I had on this. I threw this game into a few parlays and teasers, and it resulted in a nearly $800 swing. You just HATE to see it, and fuck Will Lutz for missing that field goal FINAL SCORE: 24-21 EAGLES

BROWNS (+3): Last but not least, the bad beat of the season. This was such a bad beat that I almost can’t even get mad about it. Almost. If you missed it, this game was awesome and had back and forth scoring the whole night. It went to OT, and due to a Ravens field goal, The Browns found themselves down by 3. I had all but accepted this result, seeing as my bet would push so at least I wouldn’t lose. But then, it happened. While doing laterals with no time left the ball ended up in the end zone, leading to a safety and 2 more points for The Ravens, so The Browns were no longer covering +3. Unreal. Un-fucking-real FINAL SCORE: 47-42 RAVENS


Lastly, let’s review my Why Not Teaser from Week 14. Do I have to? Okay, let’s laugh at my misfortune once again. Here it was:

-Packers -2✅

-Bucs -.5✅

-Chiefs -.5✅

-Saints -2❌

I said it last week, but it needs to be repeated: It makes no sense that I have such a high winning percentage this year and still manage to pick 1 ow 2 wrong games for the teaser EVERY FUCKING WEEK. Like how does that happen? Whatever. I’ve accepted that these are never going to win and I’ve found peace

And that’s that. My 9-7 record from Week 14 moves my record for the season to 118-87-4, so despite this week’s bad beats, I’m content overall. This is probably the best stretch of gambling I’ve ever had, and if I could stop losing so much money on college football and basketball, I would be raking in the dough right now

I’m in the early stages of my Week 15 picks right now, and I should have that blog up tomorrow. Have a Good Friday everybody, we all deserve it 🍺🍺🍺🍺🍺
