Chargers vs Bengals and Vikings vs Lions Recap
The NFL regular season is winding down, and the playoff picture is starting to be set. The Patriots took over first place in the AFC in Week 13, and the NFC is proving to be the best conference in football.
We learned a lot in Week 13, and it’s going to help us place our Week 14 bets. Here are the important things you need to know before betting on this week’s NFL matchups.
Chargers Blow Out Bengals
The Cincinnati Bengals seemed to be rolling heading into Week 13, but all their momentum was destroyed by Los Angeles Chargers. Justin Herbert came up big with 317 yards through the air. However, Los Angeles’ defense changed the game when they returned a fumble 61 yards to the house in the fourth quarter.
The total was set at 49 points in this matchup, and it easily went over with the Chargers winning 41-22.
The Lions Have Won a Game
Detroit Lions needed a win, and they got one on Sunday against the Minnesota Vikings. This was the biggest storyline of the weekend because it was their first notch in the win column. The Lions seemed like they tried to lose the game, but the Vikings did not capitalize on the mistakes.
Minnesota also made a ton of mistakes down the stretch. Detroit easily covered +7 with the win and made money line bettors happy with +220 odds. Jared Goff threw the game-winning touchdown pass to Amon-Ra St. Brown.
