With just over a month left in the regular season, we cross into Week 14, where there are a few playoff-clinching scenarios.
One of which is the Minnesota Vikings, but they’re road underdogs against the Detroit Lions.
Here, we’ll build a Week 14 parlay using odds from DraftKings Sportsbook. The odds are +595, and you can bet this right now by clicking our link, signing up for a new account, and getting a $1,000 deposit bonus.
The 5-win Lions are favored against the 10-2 Vikings—how could this be?
The Lions are playing incredibly well lately, going 4-1 over their last five games, averaging almost 30 points, and allowing under 20 points.
Here, we’re focusing on the total, though.
Both of these defenses, regardless of the stats, aren’t good. The Lions will have a bunch of options on the Vikings to handle, including wide receiver Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen, running back Dalvin Cook, and a familiar face in tight end T.J. Hockenson.
This Lions' defense has played well, but there are too many options against a great Vikings offense.
However, the Vikings' defense hasn’t been great this season. Cornerback Patrick Peterson has played well, as have Danielle Hunter and Za’Darius Smith. Still, the rest just hasn’t played well.
They’re allowing over 280 passing yards per game, and the Lions have a bunch of weapons on offense.
It wouldn’t be surprising to see both teams cross 30 points.
This is a ton of points. In fact, this may be the largest spread of the year.
For an NFL team to lay 17.5 points, that’s a significant indictment of how bad the Texans are this season.
They have one win, and they’re going back to their original starter, Davis Mills.
They’re on the road against a Cowboys team with a playmaking cornerback in Trevon Diggs and an elite pass rush.
The Texans allow close to 170 per game on the ground, and a vital component of the Cowboys' offense is running back Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard.
Look for the Cowboys to absolutely dismantle the Texans at home.
This number started at 3.5, and while we’d like to have that, we’ll still lay 4.5 with Seattle.
Quarterback Geno Smith has been tremendous this season, completing nearly 73% of his passes with an 8.1 yards per attempt average.
He’s taking risks downfield, too, with 11% of his attempts going 20+ yards.
The Panthers will be traveling across the country to play in Seattle, which is always a tough place to play.
The Seahawks' defense is far from stout, but there are some solid young playmakers, and Panther quarterback Sam Darnold has never been someone to rely on.
Look for Smith to hook up plenty with wide receivers D.K. Metcalf and Tyler Lockett and for running back Kenneth Walker III to have a big game.
