NFL Week 14 Preview
Pittsburgh Steelers vs Minnesota Vikings @ U.S. Bank Stadium
The Minnesota Vikings had the honour of being the first team to lose to the Detroit Lions last week.
It’s not the kind of record the Vikings wanted or needed, especially after dropping to 5-7. However, we think they can bounce back against the Steelers at home.
Most of the early money has come for Minnesota, so it’s now time for Kirk Cousins to step up.
Betting tip: Minnesota Vikings -3
Vikings by 7
Baltimore Ravens vs Cleveland Browns @ FirstEnergy Stadium
Baltimore let a good chance slip last week against the Steelers and it doesn’t get much easier this week.
The Browns are another team in desperate need for a win. They are 6-6, but are 4-2 at home. If Baker Mayfield can find his rhythm, we think the Browns will be too strong.
There is only 2.5 points between them in betting markets, so a close game is expected.
Betting tip: Cleveland Browns
Browns by 7
Jacksonville Jaguars vs Tennessee Titans @ Nissan Stadium
It has been shaky times for Tennessee, but it’s one of the better NFL teams.
The Titans could get back to their best form against the struggling Jaguars, who are 2-10 and struggling for consistency.
Bookmakers are giving the Jaguars 8.5 points, but it should be enough against one of the strongest teams in the competition. We expect the Titans to get back to their best on Monday.
Betting tip: Tennessee Titans –8.5
Titans by 13
Las Vegas Raiders vs Kansas City Chiefs @ GEHA Field
We’re riding the Kansas City Chiefs. They are on fire after improving to 8-4 and the Raiders are going in the wrong direction.
Ever since firing their coach John Gruden, it has gone from bad to worse for the Raiders. Derek Carr has regressed and their confidence is gone.
Stopping one of the best offensive teams isn’t easy and we think the Chiefs will pummel the Raiders at home.
Betting tip: Kansas City Chiefs –8.5
Chiefs by 13
New Orleans Saints vs New York Jets @ MetLife Stadium
The Jets played well enough to beat Philadelphia last week, but they were poor in the second half.
Playing for the full 60 minutes is vital and the Jets seem contempt with losing. They are the $2.92 underdogs at home, which tells the story.
New Orleans is only 5-7 after a disappointing season with injuries, but this is a game it would have marked down as a must-win.
Betting tip: New Orleans Saints –5.5
Saints by 7
Dallas Cowboys vs Washington Football Team @ FedEx Field
Washington has exceeded expectations with a 6-6 record. However, we’re expecting Dallas to score a win.
The Cowboys had some tough games a few weeks ago, but they should be back to their best and ready to make a playoff run.
There is never too much between these teams, so take the Cowboys in head-to-head markets.
Betting tip: Dallas Cowboys
Cowboys by 4
Atlanta Falcons vs Carolina Panthers @ Bank of America Stadium
Punters never know what to expect with the Falcons and Panthers, but we have been more impressed with the Falcons.
It was always going to be a tough season, but they’re hanging around at 5-7 and we think Matty Ice can show his best form.
Getting time in the pocket is key for Ryan, who could torch the Panthers defence.
Betting tip: Atlanta Falcons
Falcons by 3
Seattle Seahawks vs Houston Texans @ NRG Stadium
Seattle showed its toughness to beat San Francisco last week to keep its slim playoff chances alive.
The Seahawks haven’t been able to get going this season, but they are more upside than the struggling 2-10 Houston Texans.
$1.26 is a touch short for Seattle, but it should get the job done.
Betting tip: Seattle Seahawks –7.5
Seahawks by 10
Detroit Lions vs Denver Broncos @ Empower High Field
Detroit finally got on the board with a much-needed win over win over Minnesota, but the celebrations shouldn’t last long.
Denver provides a much sterner test at home and with a playoff spot on the horizon, the Broncos should be playing their best football.
Bookmakers have the Broncos are raging hot $1.22 favourites, so a comfortable win is likely.
Betting tip: Denver Broncos –9.5
Broncos by 13
New York Giants vs Los Angeles Chargers @ SoFi Stadium
Los Angeles couldn’t have played any better last week and another win over the Giants should come.
The Chargers are a dynamic team on their day and the Giants defence could be in for a long day on Monday.
We thought the Chargers would be slightly shorter than –9.5 favourites, but we’re happy with the line.
Betting tip: Los Angeles Chargers –9.5
Chargers by 14
San Francisco 49ers vs Cincinnati Bengals @ Paul Brown Stadium
The Bengals were awful against the Chargers last week, but they have bounced back from losses well this year.
They looked incredible the week prior and we wouldn’t be keen on taking the 49ers on the road in this situation.
Punters get excellent value with the Bengals, who could bounce back as $2.05 home underdogs.
Betting tip: Cincinnati Bengals
Bengals by 3
Buffalo Bills vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers @ Raymond James Stadium
The Bills braved the cold weather against the Patriots on Tuesday but came up short in the 14-10 loss.
It was a tough loss to take for the 7-5 Bills, who are now two games behind in their division and up next are the Buccaneers.
Tom Brady has been doing Brady-like things. We expect more of the same and punters should appreciate the –3 line.
Betting tip: Tampa Bay Buccaneers -3
Buccaneers by 7
Chicago Bears vs Green Bay Packers @ Lambeau Field
Green Bay should have their way with the Chicago Bears and they are the shortest favourites of the week.
The Packers are $1.14 to beat the Bears, which shouldn’t be difficult for the 9-3 team, which is unbeaten in five games at Lambeau Field.
-12.5 is a big line to cover, but the Bears are a tough team to back with confidence.
Betting tip: Green Bay Packers –12.5
Packers by 14
Los Angeles Rams vs Arizona Cardinals @ State Farm Stadium
A mouthwatering contest between the Rams and Cardinals goes off on Tuesday and we give the advantage to Arizona.
Kyler Murray has been lights out this season, and although Matthew Stafford for the Rams has also been impressive, he can have bad games in the spotlight.
Take the Cardinals to secure their 11th win.
Betting tip: Arizona Cardinals –2.5
