NFL Picks: Week 14 Thursday Night

Raiders +10 over Broncos

Wednesday afternoon line 

The Raiders are terrible and I don’t like to pick them, but the trends are going their way. The game is in Oakland, on a Thursday night and the spread is double digits. Double digit underdogs are 10-6 this season. I think Denver will control the game and win outright, but Oakland will cover.

Season picks ATS: 99-87-5

Season most confident ATS: 40-26-2

Season picks straight: 126-64-1
