Monday Night Doubleheader
Week 14 Monday Night Doubleheader
Current Monday/Thursday Record: 14-8-1
NEW YORK GIANTS (8-4, 3-2 road) at MINNESOTA VIKINGS (5-7, 4-2 home*)
*at Ford Field in Detroit
Opening Line: Giants -3/43
Current Line: Giants -5/44
Pick: Vikings +5
Reason: I know this isn’t a popular pick, but the Giants have been traveling and out of their normal routine for the last three days. In addition, Minnesota is 2-0 since Brad Childress was fired. Call me crazy, but I think the drama from this past weekend will favor the Vikings.
BALTIMORE RAVENS (8-4, 3-3 road) at HOUSTON TEXANS (5-7, 3-3 home)
Opening Line: Ravens -3/44.5
Current Line: Ravens -3/46.5
Pick: Ravens -3
Reason: After a devastating loss to the hated Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 13, I’m betting the Ravens had a very good week of practice. Keep in mind that Baltimore is 3-0 this season coming off a loss, with wins of 7, 3 and 24 points, respectively. In addition, Houston currently ranks 31st in the NFL in total defense (388.8 yds/gm).
