2014 NFL Mock Draft Updated 5/8/14

  • Indianapolis Colts at New York Giants: 2014 Week 9 NFL Pick - Indianapolis Colts (5-3) at New York Giants (3-4) The Colts surprisingly lost in Pittsburgh last week by the final score of 51-34 as 3.5 point favorites. This week, they are once again 3.5 point road favorites here in New York against the Giants, but I think the result will be different for four reasons. The [...]
  • St. Louis Rams at San Francisco 49ers: 2014 Week 9 NFL Pick - St. Louis Rams (2-5) at San Francisco 49ers (4-3) The Rams were blown out last week in Kansas City as 7 point underdogs, but I have reasons to believe that they won’t get blown out here as 10 point underdogs in San Francisco. One, they are in their second straight road game, rather than last [...]
  • New York Jets at Kansas City Chiefs: 2014 Week 9 NFL Pick - New York Jets (1-7) at Kansas City Chiefs (4-3) This game has had the biggest line movement from last week to this week, as the Chiefs were just 5 point favorites in the early line last week, as opposed to 10 point favorites now. The reason for that is obvious as the Jets were just [...]
  • New Orleans Saints at Carolina Panthers: 2014 Week 9 NFL Pick - New Orleans Saints (3-4) at Carolina Panthers (3-4-1) I’ve been high on the Saints this whole season, picking them to win the Super Bowl before the season and not really wavering from that a ton even as they got out to a 2-4 start. That 2-4 start was largely a result of starting the season [...]
  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Cleveland Browns: 2014 Week 9 NFL Pick - Tampa Bay Buccaneers (1-6) at Cleveland Browns (4-3) The Browns are at the end of one of the easiest stretches of play any team in the league has this season, as they went to 0-6 Jacksonville, hosted 0-6 Oakland, and now host 1-6 Tampa Bay. However, next week they have to go to Cincinnati for [...]
  • Denver Broncos at New England Patriots: 2014 Week 9 NFL Pick - Denver Broncos (6-1) at New England Patriots (6-2) On the season, the Patriots are just 11th in rate of moving the chains differential, despite their 6-2 record, as they’ve been overly reliant on a +11 turnover margin. They are moving the chains at a 74.91% rate, as opposed to 73.18% for their opponents, a differential [...]
  • Rate of Moving the Chains – Week 8 - What is this? This is rate of moving the chains, which is my primary statistic for handicapping games. It holds the assumption that the goal of any team on any given 1st and 10 (or 1st and goal) is to move the chains (or score). In order to figure out how often teams meet that [...]
  • 2014 Week 8 NFL Pick Results - Against the Spread: 10-5 Straight Up: 11-4 Pick of the Week: 1-0 High Confidence: 1-0 Medium Confidence: 3-2 Low Confidence: 2-3 No Confidence: 3-0 Upset Picks: 1-1 Against the Spread: 76-44-1 (.633) Straight Up: 82-38-1 (.683) Pick of the Week: 5-3 High Confidence: 5-6 Medium Confidence: 29-9 Low Confidence: 17-14-1 No Confidence: 20-12 Upset Picks: [...]
  • Oakland Raiders at Cleveland Browns: 2014 Week 8 NFL Pick - Oakland Raiders (0-6) at Cleveland Browns (3-3) The Browns lost last week in previously 0-6 Jacksonville, doing so in embarrassing fashion, losing by the finale score of 24-6 and getting dominated in the chain game. They moved the chains at a mere 46.43% rate, as opposed to 65.71% for the Jaguars, a differential of -19.29% [...]
  • Seattle Seahawks at Carolina Panthers: 2014 Week 8 NFL Pick - Seattle Seahawks (3-3) at Carolina Panthers (3-3-1) The Seahawks failed to even win last week as significant favorites in St. Louis and now they’re significant favorites again here in Carolina. I like their chances of bouncing back and getting back in the win column here though. For one, this is the Seahawks’ 2nd of two [...]
