While the Las Vegas Raiders’ playoff hopes are pretty much gone, the Raiders do have a chance to play spoiler this week as the Minnesota Vikings are clinging onto an NFC Wild Card spot heading into Week 14. However, Las Vegas will be a home dog on Sunday as DraftKings Sportsbook has Minnesota as a field goal favorite.

DraftKings also has lines and prop bets available for every game this weekend. For a few of the notable matchups, the Kansas City Chiefs are slight favorites against the Buffalo Bills, while the Philadelphia Eagles are underdogs to the Dallas Cowboys on ‘Sunday Night Football’, and the Atlanta Falcons are slight favorites in an NFC South battle with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

Of course, Silver and Black Pride’s Pick’em competition is still going on as well, and below is where our writers stand after Week 13.

  1. Bill Williamson 132-61 (68%)
  2. Ray Aspuria 113-66 (63%)
  3. Matt Holder 117-76 (61%)

Last week was a solid showing for the writers as Bill and I tied for the best performance at 9-4 while Ray wasn’t too far behind with an 8-5 showing. That means Bill maintains his large lead in the standings, and he’s up to No. 4 overall among Tallysight’s analysts, and I was able to pick up a percentage point on Ray. So, while there is no drama at the top, the battle to stay out of last place heats up!
