Underdogs had a big week for the first time in a while in Week 13.  Final tally was 10-5-1 ATS and hold a 106-80-6 overall edge (56.8%).

Week 13 Recap

NFL Picks 2012: Week 14
Not much leaped off the Week 13 board for me and late line movement didn't appeal to me either.  For the most part I took a pass, but the one pick I did make ATS cashed with the Bengals getting the cover.  There was a bunch of teaser options, but with the 49ers and Ravens losing they went 2-2.  You have to give credit to the Rams for taking this one after letting their previous game in San Fran slip through their fingers. I also don't think anyone expected Charlie Batch to have the game he did, but kudos to him.  Totals split 1-1.

Week 14 Picks

Cowboys vs Bengals

Rams vs Bills 

Falcons vs Panthers 

Texans vs Patriots

Survivor Pick

I was already out of my survivor pools, but if you are still alive after Week 13 you deserve a major award of some kind.  Both Beyond the Bets and TeamRankings were undefeated heading into last week, but both were unceremoniously eliminated on Sunday.  BTB rolled with the 49ers with the Texans still left on the table as an option. Ouch. TR decided to go with the Lions and lost on the final play of the game. Double ouch! 

In the polls the 49ers were the only popular team to fall, but the other popular choices of Bills, Cowboys, and Broncos all did their jobs.  I'll keep this running as long as people continue to vote, but if numbers begin to dwindle I'll put it on the shelf until next season.  TeamRankings have full analysis here.
