NFL Point Spreads Week 14

chiefs-alex-smith-week-15Per usual, there were a number of lines moves this week and four games featured an adjustment of 1.5 or more points. Among the ‘big’ movers — according to the latest NFL Point Spreads Week 14 release from Sportsbook.ag — were the New York Jets, Houston Texans, Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers. The Jets opened as a 4.5 point road dog to the Vikings, but they are now getting six points from Minnesota. Houston, which is playing at division rival Jacksonville, saw its line go from -4.5 to -6.5. Kansas City went from a +1.5 NFL odds underdog to a -1 favorite over the hosting Arizona Cardinals. And, finally, the 49ers opened as a -7.5 road favorite over Bay Area rival Oakland;  they are now laying nine points in their meeting with the 1-11 Raiders.

The most surprising of those adjustments would be the Chiefs/Cardinals line. Both teams are coming off back to back losses, but Arizona, which is 6-0 at home this season, would seemingly have the upper hand with the game being in Glendale. However, the Cardinals are hurting from a personnel standpoint. With Drew Stanton filling in under center for Carson Palmer, Arizona’s offense has proven less effective, especially over the last two weekends. The Cardinals scored a total of 21 points against the Seahawks and Falcons as Stanton tossed three interceptions and compiled a miserable 63.4 quarterback rating. Arizona will also be without its leading rusher, Andre Ellington, who is dealing with hip and foot injuries.

As for the Chiefs, they were dreadful on the offensive side of the ball as well over the last two weeks, but they have responded well as an offense under Andy Reid’s watch when coming off back to back losses. The three times it has happened with Reid on the sidelines, Kansas City posted 28, 44 and 34 points the following week. The Chiefs have also traveled well during Reid’s tenure, posting a 9-6 road record (includes last season’ playoff loss at Indianapolis) since he took over as head coach.
