Even though there were still a few upsets, last week was about as normal a week as we have seen this season in the NFL when it comes to the Vegas angle. All but one of the teams that were favored by six or more points covered, and the one that didn't (Minnesota) lost to Detroit, who hadn't won a game until that point. So even in a "normal" week, we can still find unusual circumstances.
As for Week 14, there will probably be about half a dozen teams that will be favored by a touchdown or more, and overall the slate tilts heavily towards the home side.
