Week 14 was bizarre. It saw me post my second consecutive 3-0 week, while Chandler posted the only 0-3 week that either of us has had this year. He had two first quarter bets that were borne of very solid analysis. They just didn't go his way. If that isn't the essence of betting the NFL, I truly don't know what is.

As always, check out this week’s YouTube show** for our deep-dive analysis into our week 15 selections. This is just a summary of this week’s plays as well as a quick recap of week 14.


**We recorded this week's YouTube show on Friday, December 18. There were some technical issues to sort out, so as soon as we get those fixed we'll post the episode and link it in the paragraph above, as usual.

(TEASER BET EXPLANATION: In case you’re not familiar with a teaser, it’s a bet in which you get six points to manipulate the point spread and/or game total in a favorable direction. For example, in John’s teaser bet in week one this year, he bet the Colts and the Rams. Bet by themselves, the Colts were -8 at Jacksonville and the Rams were +3 at home against the Cowboys. However, in a teaser you get to add six points to the side of each bet you selected. Therefore, John moved the Colts down from -8 to -2, and the Rams up from +3 to +9. Teasers are great ways to manipulate lines so that they’re more favorable to you. Last, just like a parlay, teasers must include two bets or more, and you must win all the legs in the teaser to win the bet. If you lose one leg of the teaser your whole bet is busted.)
