NFL picks against the spread: 49ers to rebound with big win

David Welker

We run down the games on Sunday and give our picks against the Vegas spread.

It is Week 14. The games are here and most of them matter for the playoffs. This makes the stakes a little higher for those wagering because teams are trying to stay alive in the playoff race.

Baltimore Ravens at Washington Redskins (-3): The 'Skins are rolling with RG3 playing at a higher level than anyone expected. But Baltimore will take advantage of a weak Washington secondary. Take the points and go with the Ravens.

Kansas City Chiefs at Cleveland Browns (-7): How often are the Browns favored by a touchdown? This is one too many times. Both are bad teams. The line is too much. Take the points and the Chiefs.

San Diego Chargers at Pittsburgh Steelers (-9): Ben Roethisberger returns, which means the Chargers are toast. Plus with the report of San Diego's coach and GM being lame ducks, don't expect the Chargers to come out with a ton of energy. Give the points and roll with Big Ben.

Tennessee Titans at Indianapolis Colts (-6): Andrew Luck at home. You have to like this game. the Titan are way too up and down to trust a blowout. However, I've got the Colts by at least a touchdown.

New York Jets (-3) at Jacksonville: The Jets are not good, but not so bad that they won't beat the horrible Jags by at least a touchdown.

Chicago Bears (-3) at Minnesota Vikings: The Vikes are reeling, but they can rely on Adrian Peterson. However, Chicago is going to keep their lead in the division. Give the points, take the Bears.

Atlanta Falcons (-3.5) at Carolina Panthers: The Falcons keep proving me wrong. When I think they will win big, they play it down to the last second. When I don't think they cover, they win big. Being on the road and having clinched the division, this is going to be another nail-biter and Carolina comes away with the upset. Take the points and the Panthers.

Philadelphia Eagles at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-7.5): Philly kind of came together offensively with Nick Foles at the helm. I don't see an outright win, but they will cover. Take the points and the Eagles.

St. Louis Rams at Buffalo Bills (-3): The Rams just beat the 49ers. Naturally. Which means they will fall on their face in Buffalo. Lets go with the Bills to cover.

Dallas Cowboys at Cincinnati Bengals (-3): The Cowboys are holding on to their playoff hopes. They are going to keep with the late season push and come away with an outright win. Take Dallas.

Miami Dolphins at San Francisco 49ers (-11): Interesting fact. When the Niners lose, they allow under four points the next week. Niners win big and cover.

New Orleans Saints at New York Giants (-4.5): The Giants bounce back to blow out the Saints.

Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks (-10): Even though Seattle plays very tough at home, the Cardinals defense will keep this from being a blowout. Take the points and go Cardinals for the cover.

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers (-7): The Lions haven't won at Lambeau for over two decades. It's not happening today. Pack for the win and cover.
