One edge to keep an eye on is Unders. The Under went 9-5 in Week 13 to improve to 111-82 (58 percent) on the season. When the total falls at least one full point, the Under is 52-35 (60 percent). Nonconference Unders are 41-21 (66 percent) and windy Unders (10+ mph) are 38-21 (64 percent). Late-season divisional Unders are 57 percent over the last decade.

Here are a handful of games wise guys are targeting in Week 14.
Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers (-3, 42.5)
These NFC South rivals have identical records and each has struggled of late. The Falcons (5-7 SU, 5-7 ATS) are 1-3 over their last four games and lost to the Bucs 30-17 on Sunday, failing to cover as 11-point home dogs. The Panthers (5-7 SU, 5-7 ATS) are also 1-3 over their last four and fell to the Dolphins 33-10, losing outright as 1.5-point road favorites. This line opened with Carolina as a 3-point home favorite. With home teams typically receiving a couple of points, oddsmakers are telling you that the Panthers would be a slight favorite on a neutral field. All of the Falcons + 3s are juiced up to -115 or -120, signaling some Falcons liability and a possible fall to 2.5. Dogs off a loss are 33-22 ATS (60 percent) this season. Divisional dogs are 30-23 ATS (57 percent) and short dogs (+ 3 or less) are 20-10 ATS (67 percent). If the Falcons fall to 2.5, they would be an ideal teaser candidate (+ 2.5 to + 8.5), which goes through multiple key numbers.
