It’s set to be another cracking week in the NFL and what a game to kick off round 14.
The Falcons and the Saints square off in one of the hottest rivalries in the sport and that’s only one of the many top-quality games for punters to bet on this week.

12:25pm Atlanta Falcons vs. New Orleans Saints
Can any team stop the running game of the Saints?
They haven’t so far this season and it has propelled the Saints to a record of nine wins and three losses.
Standing in their way this week is the Falcons, which are a step below where they were last season and are currently fighting for their playoff lives.
A loss last week was tough to stomach for Falcons’ fans, but a more competitive effort should be shown this week.

5:00am Buffalo Bills vs. Indianapolis Colts
After dropping three consecutive losses, the Bills looked to be back on track with a 16-10 win over the Chiefs, but it wasn’t a happy result against the Patriots last week.
The 23-3 drubbing put them on the back foot for the rest of the season, but playing the out of form Colts should make life a little easier.
Bookmakers are withholding the odds due to the naming of the Bills quarterback.

5:00am Cincinnati Bengals vs. Chicago Bears
The Bengals are coming off one of the most bruising NFL games in recent history and it might have taken its toll.
Losing late in the game to the Steelers wouldn’t have put the team in high spirits and losing players to both injury and suspension won’t help matters.
Playing the Bears will make it easier on the 5-7 team, but the Bears have shown glimpses of potential this season.
A potential upset could be on the cards.
Betting tip: Bears +6.5 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)
Bengals by 3
5:00am Cleveland Browns vs. Green Bay Packers
The bookmakers might have framed this market incorrectly this week and we’re seeing great value with one team.
The Green Bay Packers are coming off an inspired overtime victory last week and are facing the 0-12 Browns.
With a points spread line of only three points, there is great value in betting the better side this week and Packers quarterback Billy Hundley is starting to look a lot like Aaron Rodgers.
That’s a big positive and they should win comfortably.
Betting tip: Packers -3 @ $1.92 (BET NOW)
Packers by 10
5:00am Kansas City Chiefs vs. Oakland Raiders
There’s not much we can say about the Kansas City Chiefs without being negative.
Once sitting at the top of the rankings with a record of 5-0, they have now slipped to 6-6 after losing six of their last seven games.
The Raiders looked gone at the start of the season, but are now within striking range of winning their division and it’s hard to have any confidence with the Chiefs, despite being at home.
This game could spell the end of the season for either side.
Betting tip: Raiders +4 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)
Raiders by 1
5:00am New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys
A change at quarterback wasn’t enough to see the Giants change their fortunes and that’s unlikely to change again this week.
Eli Manning was controversially sacked as the QB last week, but he’s back at the helm this time around to face the inconsistent Cowboys.
The Cowboys are at 6-6 on the season to date and despite having on and off-field troubles, they’re still a chance at making the playoffs.
Dak Prescott hasn’t been as dynamic as last season, but he’s still a force to be reckoned with.
Betting tip: Cowboys –4 @ $1.91 (BET NOW)
Cowboys by 10
5:00am Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Detroit Lions
There’s not much for either team to be excited about after suffering poor losses last week, but only one team has something to play for.
The Detroit Lions are still a chance at 6-6 and despite looking only average this season, they seem to play better away from home.
With a 4-2 away record, the Lions could find their best stuff against the Buccaneers this week and it’s tough to see the home team find enough firepower to win.
Again, bookmakers have this market off the board.
Betting tip: Lions to win (BET NOW)

5:00am Carolina Panthers vs. Minnesota Vikings
Carolina has been a tough team to follow this season. One week they look capable of winning a Super Bowl and the next they look extremely average.
The latter is what they showed last week against the Saints and it’s not about to get easier against the in-form 10-2 Vikings.
The Vikings defense has been one of the best this season and Cam Newton’s Panthers offense is going to need something to spark them.
Christian McCaffery could be that man, but they’re hard to trust at the moment.
Betting tip: Vikings –2.5 @ $1.91 (BET NOW)
Vikings by 3
5:00am Houston Texans vs. San Fransisco 49ers
We were confident that the 49ers would win last week and they got the job done, albeit by only one point.
With new quarterback Jimmy Garrappolo at the helm, the 49ers finally have something to look forward to. A win over the Bears was the shot in the arm they needed to get some momentum to carry into next season.
The Texans have an array of injury problems and that’s starting to catch up to them.
Betting tip: 49ers +3 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)
49ers by 6
8:05am Denver Broncos vs. New York Jets
It’s tough times for Broncos’ fans at the moment and the lengthy losing streak could continue this week.
Denver just aren’t the same team as they used to be and it all starts with an inept quarterback and a poor offensive line.
The Jets, on the other hand, looked impressive last week and that tough defensive pressure could force the Broncos into making mistakes.
This is a tough game to call, but we’ll stick with the form side.
Betting tip: Jets -1 @ $1.91 (BET NOW)
Jets by 3
8:05am Arizona Cardinals vs. Tennessee Titans
The Cardinals couldn’t quite keep up with the Rams last week after scoring a quality win over Jacksonville prior to that.
The 5-7 team has struggled to score consecutive wins this season and coming up against the Titans will be an acid test this Monday.
Boasting a record of 8-4, the Titans needed to lift to score last week, but they got the win over Houston to hold their division lead.
This is always a tricky game to predict and it will likely be a close contest.
Betting tip: Cardinals +3 @ $1.91 (BET NOW)
Titans by 1
8:05am L.A Chargers vs. Washington Redskins
Not many punters would have predicted the Chargers to be in the playoff hunt a few weeks ago, but that’s what stringing wins together gets you.
Looking down and out on the season at 0-4, the Chargers have, for lack of a better word, charged back into the season and now sit at 6-6.
They’re one of the form teams coming up against the Redskins which have been spectacular at times this season, but awful at times as well.
We’re going to ride the Chargers bus until it runs out of gas.
Betting tip: Chargers –6.5 @ $1.92 (BET NOW)
Chargers by 14
8:25am L.A. Rams vs. Philadelphia Eagles
The big question is when do Eagles’ fans start to panic?
A loss to the Seahawks was predicted by us last week, but we don’t think there’s any reason for punters to be worried about their Super Bowl credentials.
That question, however, could change this week when they face the in-form L.A Rams. The Rams have been cruising along as the highest scoring team in the league this season and Jared Goff is leading the way.
He might only be young, but he’s carrying this improving franchise on his back and we think they could continue their roll.
Betting tip: Rams -2 @ $1.91 (BET NOW)
Rams by 10
8:25am Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Seattle Seahawks
It could be easy to get carried away with Seattle’s win over the Eagles last week, but playing away from home is another aspect altogether.
The Jaguars play tough at home and with a running game as good as theirs, the Seahawks might be facing an uphill battle from the word go.
A win by either team will sufficiently improve their playoff credentials and it should be one of the best games this week.
Betting tip: Jaguars –2.5 @ $1.90 (BET NOW)
Jaguars by 3
12:30pm Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens
One of the best rivalries in the sport, the powerhouse Steelers take on fierce rivals the Ravens this Monday afternoon.
The Steelers are sitting comfortably at 10-2 after another come-from-behind win last week over the Bengals, but they did lose some star players on both sides of the ball.
The Ravens are one of the most improved teams this season and after looking only fair to start the season, they’re not in with a chance at 7-5.
This game is always decided by a few points and we’re leaning in favour of the visitors.
Betting tip: Ravens +5 @ $1.91 (BET NOW)
Ravens by 2
12:30pm Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots
We wish this could be a blockbuster game for the Tuesday afternoon viewers, but it shouldn’t be.
The Patriots should handle their business with ease and we’re expecting a dominant victory from the best team in the competition.
Betting tip: Patriots –11.5 @ $1.92 (BET NOW)
