NFL 2022 Weekly Preview: Week 14

News Content

Welcome to another edition of our Weekly Preview.

We are not happy with our results in the last two weeks and are very confident that we will bounce back this weekend.

While we don’t have as many games to choose from due to college football heading into Bowl Season, we still believe that we will go 5-0 with this wonderful card.

We would love to hit another multi in the next two weeks to give everyone some additional coin for the Holiday Season and are hoping for a clean sweep.

So sit back and enjoy our picks for the weekend!

If this is your first time reading our Weekly Preview, we have a winner for each of the 5 days of football.

This covers the NFL Thursday Night Football, a Friday college football game, a Saturday college football game, a Sunday NFL game and finally the Monday Night Football game to end the week!

With that said, let’s get into the winners for the week!

NFL – Las Vegas Raiders @ Los Angeles Rams

Isn’t it crazy how one year can change so much in the NFL?

Last year, this Thursday Night football game would have been a marquee matchup with two Playoff teams fighting for seeding.

Instead, we get the Los Angeles Rams who have lost six in a row and have one of the worst records in the league at 3-9 taking on the Raiders who are 5-7 themselves.

Despite being 5-7, the Raiders are by far the superior team in this matchup and should blowout the Rams on Thursday Night Football.

While their record may not suggest it, the Raiders are a solid football team that still have Playoff aspirations.

Being two games out of the last Wildcard spot, the Raiders are in a must win situation here.

With favourable games against New England and Pittsburgh up next, these Raiders can actually be 8-7 heading into January.

The Raiders have won three in a row and have been in one score games since late October.

On the contrary, the Rams are in complete tank mode and looking forward to the NFL Draft.

Matthew Stafford is out for the season most likely and the Rams have nothing to play for.

Their quarterbacks of John Wolford and Bryce Perkins are terrible and the Raiders defence should be able to dominate and force multiple turnovers.

If for some chance Baker Mayfield gets the start, he will have very limited knowledge of the playbook.

Therefore, there is literally no way that the Rams offense can keep pace with the Raiders.

With the Raiders being in close games all throughout the season, expect them to get an easy win in Primetime.

Expect this to get ugly early with the Raiders winning by double digits on the road.

Selection: Las Vegas Raiders -6 @ 1.89

College Football – William & Mary Tribe @ Montana State Bobcats

Welcome to the FCS Championship Quarterfinals between the 11-1 Tribe and the 11-1 Bobcats.

This game will be featured on ESPN 2 which will give these lower division kids a chance to shine on Primetime television.

While both of these teams are very solid, we are very sure that the Montana State Bobcats will dominate the line of scrimmage and cover the spread.

Montana State has redemption on their mind after getting humiliated in the FCS Championship last year.

With home field advantage in freezing cold Bozeman, Montana the Bobcats should be able to run the ball down the throat of the Tribe’s defence.

Montana State has played great football all year with their only blemish to Oregon State.

With the temperature below freezing and possible snow in the forecast, we believe that Montana State will be able to do what they're best at.

Run the ball, play turnover free football and have the support of their diehard fans in the crowd.

While William & Mary looked very impressive last week putting up 608 yards and forcing six turnovers, we can’t see them doing anything remotely close against this Bobcats defence.

Montana State played a tough opponent last week in Weber State and dominated them leading 33-10 midway in the fourth quarter.

They put up 554 yards themselves and are focused on winning the FCS Championship this year.

Lay the points at home here and expect this to be a double digit victory.

Selection: Montana State Bobcats -8 @ 1.91

College Football - Navy Midshipmen @ Army Black Knights

It’s always a sad moment for us when the Navy Midshipmen and the Army Black Nights meet.

This means that college football is winding down for the year and Bowl Season is right around the corner.

It’s quite obvious what this game brings to the table every year.

Smash mouth option running football with a ton of pride and discipline.

While these games have been quite low scoring over the last decade, we believe that the Navy Midshipmen are by far the better team this year.

While Navy is 4-7 compared to Army being 5-6, Navy has played a much tougher schedule.

Navy is coming off a ranked win against UCF and lost only by 3 points to ranked Notre Dame.

On the contrary, Army got blown out 45-10 when they played Wake Forest who was their only ranked opponent they faced all year.

While Army looks hot on a two game winning streak, they beat two of the worst programs in college football in UConn and UMass.

While both teams will fight hard and play inspired football, we believe that Navy will build off the confidence of their win last year in this matchup and easily beat Army.

Option football is a great thing to watch and we expect a hard fought matchup between these two rivals.

Lay the points and expect the Navy to win in convincing fashion.

Selection: Navy Midshipmen -1.5 @ 1.90

NFL – Minnesota Vikings @ Detroit Lions

The 10-2 Minnesota Vikings head into Detroit to take on the 5-7 Lions.

Earlier this year, Detroit had a 10-point lead heading into the fourth quarter and blew it with less than a minute to go in regulation against these overrated Vikings.

Amazingly, Minnesota is 10-2 despite being outplayed in almost every game this year.

Many will think we are out of our mind to lay points with the Lions here against the Vikings who have the second best record in the NFL.

Trust us, we aren’t crazy or insane. This is our favourite play on Sunday for many reasons.

First off, the Vikings literally have nothing to play for.

They have the #2 seed wrapped up in our opinion after the #3 seeded 49ers lost their quarterback for the season.

The Vikings are two games behind the Eagles for the #1 seed because of their head to head outcome and we can’t see them catching them.

On the other hand, the Lions have an outside shot to make the Playoffs.

Winners of 4 of their last 5, the Lions are one of the hottest teams in the NFL and have a very soft schedule to finish off the year.

With the Jets, Panthers, Bears and Packers left on their schedule, we could see the Lions winning out and finishing the year 10-7.

Last week, the Vikings gave up 486 yards on defence and only had 287 yards themselves.

Despite this huge yardage discrepancy, the Vikings still managed to pull out another close win.

The line itself tells you to take the Lions. How is a 10-2 team an underdog to a 5-7 team?

We took the Lions when they were only a 3-point dog in New York earlier this year and it worked like a charm.

We will lay the points here and expect the Lions to not only win but cover against these overrated Vikings.

Selection: Detroit Lions -2.5 @ 1.86

NFL – New England Patriots @ Arizona Cardinals

Are you ready for some Monday Night Football?

This week we get the 6-6 New England Patriots taking on the 4-8 Arizona Cardinals.

We are very confident that the New England Patriots will take care of business and win on Primetime.

First off, the Patriots have been in Primetime the past two weeks and failed to deliver.

Losing to the Vikings on Thanksgiving and the Bills last Thursday puts Bill Belichick and the Patriots in a must win situation.

Despite being 6-6, they are only one game behind for the last Wildcard spot and must win with a very tough schedule lurking ahead.

The Patriots were on Monday Night Football earlier this year and got embarrassed at home against the Chicago Bears.

Expect them to get back to their winning ways against an Arizona squad who are downright terrible at home.

The Cardinals are 1-11 and their last 12 home games and we can’t back them in this situation.

Coming off a heart-breaking loss where they not only gave up a touchdown but a two-point conversion with 15 seconds left to lose by 1, this team is done.

Having a bye week after a gut wrenching loss is probably the worst thing for these Cardinals.

Kliff Kingsbury is definitely on the hot seat and he has been a horrible coach in November and December dating back to his collegiate days.

Expect Bill Belichick to have his team ready to play this week.

The chances of Bill Belichick and the Patriots going 0-4 in Primetime this season is very low.

Take the Patriots and expect them not only to win but to cover this small spread on the road in Arizona.

Selection: Baltimore Ravens -3 @ 1.97

With Christmas right around the corner, we are hoping that we can give everyone some extra coin for the Holidays.

This week our multi pays 24/1 and we are quite confident it will hit.

We already hit a multi in November so we have a ton of confidence we can do it again!

Best of luck and enjoy these five wonderful football games this weekend!
