Weekend Preview for Chargers at Cowboys and Jets at Bucs

Chargers at Cowboys

Sports betting odds show that the 9-3 Chargers and the 8-4 Cowboys aren’t necessarily the class of their respective conferences. That distinction goes to the two undefeated teams in the league. But short of a battle between the perfect Saints and Colts this is just about the next best thing as the two of the best teams in the NFC and AFC square off in what should be the top game of the week.

The Chargers got off to a terrible start and are now the quietest 9-3 team in league history and sportsbetting. After starting the season 2-3 the team has rattled off seven wins in a row. The scary thing about this team is that is seems to get better every game and hasn’t had a close call since a 21-20 squeaker over the Giants in the Meadowlands.

The Cowboys have a very similar record and after a rough start to the sports betting season have ironed things out and are 6-2 over the past eight sports betting matchups. Tony Romo’s numbers aren’t the flashiest of his career but he’s making fewer mistakes than ever and that’s translated into sportsbetting odds wins for the Cowboys.

The Chargers have the better offense but the Cowboys have the better D. There’s not that big of a disparity between either team on either side of the ball and this should be an evenly matched event.

The key to this matchup will be QB Phil Rivers ability to exploit a mediocre Dallas pass defense which is giving up 225 ypg in the air and ranks in the bottom half of the league. The Cowboy’s pass rush has also fallen off of late and that could doom the home team. The longer Rivers has the ball in his hands the better for the Bolts. ‘Boys are favored by three but pick the Chargers to get the win.

Jets get a warm getaway and win vs. Bucs

The Jets couldn’t have asked for a better week 14 matchup than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. To begin with, the Bucs (1-11) are by most accounts the worst team in the NFL. So that’s nice. Plus, if you have to travel, why not got some place with 80 degree temperatures rather than some blizzard-infested northern outpost?

The Jets (6-6) are now firmly back in the AFC playoff race. After racing out to the division lead and then dropping a month’s worth of sports betting games they have somehow rebounded from the roller coaster first three months of the season and look prepped to make a sports betting odds playoff run in December. The Bucs are a great sportsbetting odds opponent for just such a mission.

Tampa lacks talent and has no legitimate star at any position. It’s rookie QB Josh Freeman has been making mistakes by the bucket full, just as you would expect. But he’s also shown signs of brilliance and perhaps a bright future and he can hardly be blamed for the team’s lack of a running game, defense and dearth of talent at the WR spot.

New York’s QB situation is a bit in limbo with fellow rookie QB Mark Sanchize’s injury. But even with back up Kellen Clemens starting the Jets should win this one. The D should put enough pressure on Freeman to wish he was back in Kansas and the rest should take care of itself. Jets move to 7-5 and the Bucs keeping keep a lock on the number one overall pick in March by falling to 1-12.
