For home teams, ’tis the season to give

Thirteen of the 14 games on the board feature the home team laying points. This is unusual. We’ve had an average of five home underdogs per week in 2013, but in Week 14, we have only three. Thursday night, Houston was favored at Jacksonville, Kansas City is favored at Washington on Sunday, and on Monday night, Dallas is a slight favorite in Chicago.
