Week 14 Spreads: STATS vs. Las Vegas

By: Stats Perform

Using STATS X-Info metrics and roster rankings to project NFL favorites vs. the Vegas standard odds

Jared Goff and Carson Wentz are ready to share the NFL’s biggest stage once again. The difference this time is it will be on the field in the most anticipated game of the week.

The Rams selected Goff with the No. 1 pick of the 2015 draft before Philadelphia snagged Wentz at No. 2, with both teams trading up to select them. Two years later, they’re two of the best in the NFC, and it’s largely because of the improved quarterback play. Wentz ranks sixth in the league with a 102.0 passer rating for the 10-2 Eagles, while Goff is ninth at 98.4 for the 9-3 Rams.

Los Angeles opened as a consensus two-point favorite over the visiting Eagles in Vegas, but how does STATS see that game playing out when all the data is pumped into its model?

STATS uses proprietary data to project spreads for each NFL game. STATS X-Info calculates roster rankings based on injuries, statistical data and depth at each position, then compares that to an opponent and arrives at a conclusion – the projected spread.

None of these spread projections mean you should empty your account and follow the STATS model to riches. X-Info simply takes into account factors Vegas may not, hence some differing views. And if you’re looking for fantasy advice, you’re still best suited to follow best-in-the-business Sean Koerner and his weekly tiers.

Have a look at how STATS projects the spreads in Week 14 against those coming out of Las Vegas as of Thursday afternoon. We’re also going to structure things differently this week and divide games into two sections instead of three. Those projected scores for each game are new as well.
