Let’s take a look at all of the games on the NFL Week 14 schedule, examine the odds that accompany the games and TRY to determine what will play out on another scintillating week of NFL action.
Raiders (10-2) at Chiefs (9-3)
NFL Week 14 Odds / Thursday Opening line: Chiefs, -3.5 points
The lead in the AFC will be on the line Thursday night when two of the most impressive teams this season duke it out.
The Chiefs win the first meeting in Oakland 26-10 – their sixth win in the last seven meetings between the teams – three straight at Arrowhead. It will be Oakland’s terrific offense against KC’s stout defense.
It is supposed to be COLD at kickoff – something that should work in the Chiefs defense. They own the Raiders and my bet is that they keep the roll going Thursday.
Broncos (8-4) at Titans (6-6)
NFL Week 14 Odds / Opening line: Titans, -1.5 points
The Titans return from a late-season bye and are actually favorites against Denver – I can’t believe I just said that! My guess is that Trevor Siemian doesn’t play this week – if so you have to like Tennessee.
That said if Siemian does somehow suit up I like Denver to win this game. Keep an eye on the injury report here.
Chargers (5-7) at Panthers (4-8)
NFL Week 14 Odds / Opening line: Panthers, -3 points
It is hard to believe after Week 13’s performance that the Panthers are favored against anyone!
I mean good grief! Carolina is third worst in the NFL this season ATS – just 3-8-1 so far while the Chargers have actually been covering more often than not.
It looks to me like the Panthers have packed it in this year – I’m taking the team that looks like it cares – San Diego to prevail in this one.
Texans (6-6) at Colts (6-6)
NFL Week 14 Odds / Opening line: Colts, -4.5 points
Andrew Luck returned from a concussion Monday night and he looked awfully good – albeit against an awful Jets defense. This is a huge game in the AFC South with Indianapolis looking to avenge a 26-23 loss in Houston in the first meeting.
Since that time, the Colts have looked OK while the Texans have looked awful especially on the road where they are just 1-4 SU and ATS.
Andrew Luck saves his best ball for divisional games – he is 15-5-2 ATS in this position and should be good for another win this week. I like the Colts to rack up the score here.
Bengals (4-7-1) at Browns (0-12)
NFL Week 14 Odds / Opening line: Bengals -4 points
Are you taking the Browns – ever? Me neither – they are 2-10 ATS this year and the Bengals have won four straight meetings. Robert Griffin III may start behind center for Cleveland this week which gives me even less faith in the team.
The Bengals still have pride folks – there is no way they let the Browns take them down this week.
Steelers (7-5) at Bills (6-6)
NFL Week 14 Odds / Opening line: Steelers, -1.5 points
The Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers try to stay in the hunt of their respective playoff pictures Sunday in what is a very, very important game.
The Bills have traditionally done very well as home underdogs – 9-3 ATS in their last 12 in this position but the Steelers have had a knack of showing up in the cold – they are 11-2 in their last 13 December contests. This one is a tad difficult to call – but I am taking the Steelers to prevail by a field goal.
They have won the last three meetings between the sides and the Steelers haven’t lost in Buffalo in 17 years. Simply put I can’t imagine Buffalo scoring enough to keep up in this one.
Cardinals (5-6-1) at Dolphins (7-5)
NFL Week 14 Odds / Opening line: Dolphins, -2.5 points
Miami is 5-1 SU at home this year – that’s the good news. The bad news is that they face the league’s #2 defense this week after an awful effort in Week 13. Arizona has been bad on the road this year – 1-4 SU and ATS but the Cards has won every meeting between the teams since 1999.
Arizona is better than their record suggests while Miami may not be as good as their 7-5 record. I like Arizona in this game – they did some good things last week and should dominate with just one player – David Johnson.
Bears (3-9) at Lions (8-4)
NFL Week 14 Odds / Opening line: Lions, -7 points
The Bears won the first meeting of the season between the teams but this is a different Detroit team than we saw in that game. The Lions are 8-4 ATS this season – they seem to be inventing new ways to win.
While I like Chicago in this game – these teams have had a knack of playing close games – eight of the last nine meetings have been one-score differences.
I like Chicago to keep it close again this week – take the Bears to cover in a typically exciting NFC North contest.
Vikings (6-6) at Jaguars (2-10)
NFL Week 14 Odds / Opening line: Vikings, -3 points
Two teams going precisely the wrong way meet in Jacksonville this week – the Jags are 0-4 SU and ATS at home this year and the Vikings are 1-6 SU in their last seven games overall.
Both offenses in this contest are BAD meaning that defense will be the difference here. In that case I will take Minnesota whose defense is superior and should give its offense a couple of short fields.
Saints (5-7) at Buccaneers (7-5)
NFL Week 14 Odds / Opening line: Pick’em
The Red-Hot Bucs host the New Orleans Saints this week with a pretty bad 2-4 home record this season both SU and ATS.
But one of those home wins came two weeks ago when they handled the Seahawks with stellar defense and an offense that operated with precision.
Drew Brees and company had a difficult time last week offensively against a poor-ish defense – they have a much tougher task this week. Tampa has won four straight games for a reason – their all-around game has been terrific. I like them to take down the Saints this week.
Redskins (6-5-1) at Eagles (5-7)
NFL Week 14 Odds / Opening line: Redskins, -1 point
The Eagles haven’t been great lately but they are at home this week where they are 4-1 SU and ATS. Both teams will need a strong effort in order to remain in the NFC playoff picture.
Washington has won four straight games between the two sides including a 27-20 win earlier this year. Washington looks like the better team right now – I like them to continue their recent dominance of the Eagles this week.
Jets (3-9) at 49ers (1-11)
Opening line: 49ers, -1 point
Ugh! Bryce Petty will start at QB for the Jets who look as though they have given up on the year. New York flies across country on a short week to take on a 49ers team that is 2-9-1 ATS this year.
The Jets haven’t won in the Bay in 33 years – I can’t imagine it happening this week. The Niners are bad but the Jets are horrendous right now. Take the home team here!
Seahawks (8-3-1) at Packers (6-6)
Opening line: Seahawks, -2.5 points
This is a beauty! Seattle has won three of the last four games between the sides and enters this game with a ton on the line yet again.
Seattle is clearly the better team but in the cold weather the playing-field is significantly leveled here. The difference in such cold-weather games is defense – Green Bay has Zero defense and Seattle’s stop unit I still elite despite the Earl Thomas injury.
Green Bay is somehow 0-2-1 ATS in their last three games as home underdog – I don’t see them reversing the trend against a motivated and Hot Seattle team. This has blowout potential written all over it – doesn’t it?
Falcons (7-5) at Rams (4-8)
Opening line: Falcons, -4.5 points
How is Jared Goff and the Rams going to match an Atlanta offense that is averaging 32.2 points per game this year when they themselves are averaging 15? The answer is simple – they are not!
Atlanta is actually 4-2 SU and 5-1 ATS on the road this year – I expect the Falcons offense to roll again this week and for Atlanta to post a double-digit win.
Cowboys (11-1) at Giants (8-4)
Opening line: Cowboys, -2.5 points
The Giants provided the Cowboys their only loss of the year – it is hard to imagine the same fate this week. The Giants looked awful last week and the Cowboys are 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS on the road this year.
These games are traditionally very close – my guess is it is again Sunday. I like the Cowboys to win this game and to cover the three points – 24-20 seems about right.
Ravens (7-5) at Patriots (10-2)
Opening line: Patriots -9 points
The Patriots finally face a tough defense on Sunday – the Ravens bring the #1 ranked defense to Foxboro. This is a prime time game at home for Tom Brady – he is 14-2 in such situations.
The Pats are also 9-3 ATS this season. While the 9 points may seem a little high, you have to love the way New England can play keep-away and wreak havoc in both the running and passing game.
I just can’t recommend any team against the Pats at home in Prime Time.
