If you like big upsets, this is probably the week on the NFL betting lines for you. There are a whopping three teams that are double digit favorites, one of which is on the road, and there is one more team that is favored by more than a touchdown. It’s certainly not a guarantee that all of these clubs are going to win when push comes to shove, and there could be a real chance for some major upsets to hit the board.

The fun and games starts on Thursday, when the Denver Broncos take on the Oakland Raiders. Oakland is definitely one of those teams that has the ability to be a pain in the butt, but it has been one of the worst teams in the league over the course of the last few weeks. Denver is just murdering teams left and right, and it has already clinched up the AFC West title. With all of that being said, it’s no wonder why the Broncos, in spite of the fact that they are on the road and in spite of the fact that they are playing in a rivalry game, are still laying 10.5, matchup the biggest point spread of the weekend.

The other two double digit favorites are the San Francisco 49ers and the Seattle Seahawks. The Niners are giving a week-high 10.5 to the Miami Dolphins in spite of the fact that they really haven’t had a very consistent quarterback situation with QB Colin Kaepernick and the recently benched QB Alex Smith. Seattle is taking on a train wreck of an Arizona Cardinals outfit, who mustered under 100 yards of total offense if you take away the 40 yards they got on fake punt in a loss last week. The Seahawks, who currently hold the last playoff spot in the NFC, are laying 10.

The other big favorites at the moment are the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. It’s not that Tampa Bay has been all that impressive of late, as the team has lost a pair of nail biters in a row to the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos. It’s that the team the Bucs are playing this week, the Philadelphia Eagles, are as much of a disaster as the Cardinals are. Head Coach Andy Reid is clearly just playing out the string, as he will be fired at the end of the season, and QB Nick Foles has been named the starter for the rest of the year. Foles on the road in Tampa Bay against a playoff hungry team that has been playing solid football isn’t a good formula, and that’s why the Bucs are giving 7.5.

The other major theme of the week this week is the road favorite, all of which could easily fall victim to the dreaded upset. All of these teams are favored by either 3 or 3.5 on the road, and two of them are going against division rivals.

One look at the game between the Atlanta Falcons and the Carolina Panthers, and you’d think that the Falcons should be favored by at least a touchdown, knowing how far apart these two are in the NFL standings. However, remember that when these two played at the Georgia Dome, the Panthers had the Falcons dead to rights, and they ultimately only lost the game by a deuce. That’s why the oddsmakers have only lined Atlanta at -3.5.

The two teams that are favored by a field goal on the road are the New York Jets and the Chicago Bears. Both teams might really be fighting for their rights to survival for the playoffs. Chicago seems to be in a comfortable spot right now, but a loss to the Minnesota Vikings, and all of a sudden, there is just a game of safety left with three games to play, one of which is coming against the Packers. The Vikes are definitely playing for their lives, as dropping to 6-7 would be devastating and would probably end up resulting in the end of the season after such a promising start to the year. Amazingly, the Jets are still in the thick of the fight at 5-7 in the AFC, but they are going to need to beat the Jacksonville Jaguars down in the Sunshine State to keep those hopes alive.

The rest of the games on the docket are all expected to be relatively close. The Washington Redskins are favored by two points over the Baltimore Ravens in a local clash. Elsewhere in the AFC North, the Pittsburgh Steelers, with QB Ben Roethlisberger appearing to be back in the saddle, are -7 against the San Diego Chargers. The Cleveland Browns are -6.5 in a clash of two of the worst teams in the NFL against the Kansas City Chiefs. And finally, the Cincinnati Bengals are -3 at home against the Dallas Cowboys in a battle of two teams fighting for playoff positioning.

The Indianapolis Colts are laying five to the Tennessee Titans in a battle of AFC South teams, while the Buffalo Bills are -3 at home against the St. Louis Rams.

Three of the last four games on the rotation schedule are tremendously important battles this week. The New Orleans Saints and New York Giants are both coming off of bad losses last week, and they are going to need to make amends for that if they are going to have a chance to fulfill their playoff goals. New Orleans absolutely has to have this one, or there is a chance that it could be mathematically eliminated by the time Week 15 is said and done with. The Giants will need a win to ensure that they stay in first place in the NFC East for another week. The G-Men are giving 4.5 in what should be one of the week’s most exciting games.

Football Night in America heads to Lambeau Field this week for the Green Bay Packers and the Detroit Lions. Odds have it, blowing a 12-point lead last week to the Colts spells the end for Detroit, but if there is any chance whatsoever to at least keep some hope for the playoffs alive, this is it. Green Bay knows that winning out will win the NFC North, and it will probably end up giving the team a first round bye in the second season. The hosts are predictably favored by a touchdown.

But of course, the big kahuna game of the weekend pits the Houston Texans against the New England Patriots. The Texans know that winning this game will almost certainly give them the No. 1 seed in the AFC playoffs, as they will be at least two up with three to play on the Ravens and Broncos, and they will have put New England away. More importantly, Houston would have SU victories over all three of the top seeds in the conference, and two of those wins would be on the road. The Patriots already have the AFC East locked up, but if they have any chance of keeping the road to the Super Bowl at home, they are going to have to win this game. To prove just how evenly matched these two clubs are, New England is only favored by the value of home field advantage, three points.

‘Totals’ this week are all over the place. Both the Sunday Night and Monday Night Football games feature ‘totals’ in the 50s, while the highest number of the week features a 53 with the Giants and the Saints. Meanwhile on the other end of the spectrum, the Seahawks and the Cardinals are only expected to reach 35.5 points.
