BETCRIS NFL ODDS Philadelphia Eagles vs Los Angeles Rams

NFL Games of the Week feature the Minnesota Vikings at the Carolina Panthers and the Philadelphia Eagles at the Los Angeles Rams. These Week 14 matchups can be seen on CBS and FOX on Sunday, December 10. All four teams are currently in a playoff spot in the NFC and the Vikings and Eagles are tied for the best record in the NFL with the New England Patriots. Let’s look at both games and Week 14 NFL picks.

Vikings vs. Panthers TV Coverage: CBS

The Carolina Panthers will try and prove they are worthy of making the playoffs, as they host the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday. The Panthers have had three chances this season to show they are a playoff team and they are 1-2 in those games. They beat New England in Week 5 but lost to Philadelphia in Week 6 and to New Orleans last week. The Panthers simply haven’t proven they can avoid mistakes against top teams and Cam Newton is not a great quarterback. He has not thrown for over 200 yards in four of the last five games.

The Panthers can make a statement with a win over a Minnesota team that has won eight straight games and is tied for the best record in the league at 10-2. The good news for Carolina is that they should get Pro Bowl tight end Greg Olsen back on Sunday and they could get Pro Bowl center Ryan Kalil back as well. Carolina is 2-3 ATS at home this season with three games going over and two going under.

The Vikings are 4-2 ATS on the road, with three games going over and three going under.

Key Stat

The Under is 20-6 in the Vikings last 26 vs. a team with a winning record. The Under is 11-4-1 in the Panthers last 16 games on grass. The Under is 5-2 in the last 7 meetings in this series.

Vikings vs. Panthers Free Picks

This should be a tight, defensive struggle between two of the top defensive teams in the league, so I will take the game under the total.

Vikings vs. Panthers Week 14 ATS Pick: Under 42 at BetCris

Vikings vs. Panthers Score Prediction: Panthers 17, Vikings 14

Philadelphia Eagles vs. Los Angeles Rams

Date and Time: Sunday, December 10, 2017, 4:25 p.m. ET

Location: Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum, Los Angeles, CA

Week 14 Opening NFL Odds at BetCris: Rams -1, O/U 51

Eagles vs. Rams TV Coverage: FOX

Two of the top teams in the league meet on Sunday afternoon, as the Eagles visit the Rams on FOX. The Eagles are coming off just their second loss of the season, as they were beaten at Seattle, while the Rams are coming off a good win against Arizona. The Rams have two of their most important games of the season coming up, as they host the Eagles this week and visit the Seahawks next week. “It’s going to be a great one,” Rams kick returner Pharoh Cooper said to the L.A. Times about the Philadelphia game. “We got this win, so it’s going to make that game a lot more pumped up than what it already was.”

The Rams have not made the playoffs since 2004 but they are in a good spot heading into Week 14. Defensive lineman Michael Brockers has warned his teammates not to get too cocky. “You don’t want to look at yourself like you’re good,” he said, “because once you’re good you can be humbled real quick.”

Key Stat

The Eagles are 4-0 ATS in the last 4 meetings. The Eagles are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Rams are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. the NFC. The Over is 14-4 in the Eagles last 18 road games. The Under is 4-0 in the Rams last 4 home games.

Eagles vs. Rams Free Picks

I am surprised the Rams are favored in this contest. The Eagles did stumble last week against the Seahawks, but that game was closer than the score indicated, and if not for a couple of plays the outcome could have been different. I think Philadelphia will bounce back in a big way on Sunday, so I will take the Eagles in this contest.

Eagles vs. Rams Week 14 ATS Pick: Eagles +1 at BetCris

Eagles vs. Rams Score Prediction: Eagles 31, Rams 17
