Top Bets To Make For NFL Week 14

Top Bets To Make For NFL Week 14
The NFL season has dwindled down to four more weeks! A handful of teams are still vying for playoff positioning, while others are looking ahead to the NFL Draft and who to hire as their next head coach — we're looking at you, Packers! Here's our three favorite betting picks ahead of Week 14!

As the playoff race heats up, so do the NFL betting lines. There’s more on the line for NFL teams and bettors alike as the season winds down. Whether you’re already up on the season or need a comeback to finish strong, here’s our best bets of Week 14. All odds courtesy of Bovada: 

Over/under 53 points: Baltimore Ravens at Kansas City Chiefs

This is the classic best offense vs. best defense matchup. Kansas City enters with a league-high 37 points per game average, while Baltimore is the stingiest defense, giving up a mere 17.8 points a game. 

We’re enamored with the under here. The only two times the Chiefs have been held under 30 points this season is to Denver and Arizona. What do both the Broncos and Cardinals have in common? A front seven that can create havoc for the shifty Patrick Mahomes. The Ravens have that ingredient as well, ranking right behind Denver and Arizona in team sacks with 35 on the season.

On the other end of the spectrum, Kansas City has been a sieve on defense. They rank sixth-worst in the NFL at 27.3 points allowed per game. Though, they’ll catch a break with the Ravens and whoever ends up starting at quarterback. Joe Flacco has missed two games in a row. The fill-in Lamar Jackson suffered a concussion on Sunday. The only healthy signal caller for Baltimore right now is Robert Griffin III — yes, he’s still in the league. The Ravens’ revolving door at quarterback gives us confidence this game will stay low-scoring. 

Pick: Under 53 points

Atlanta Falcons at Green Bay Packers (-6)

The Mike McCarthy era has finally come to an end in Green Bay after a dreadful 4-7-1 season, yet somehow the wounded Packers find themselves as six-point favorites. Huh?

Yeah, we can’t figure that one out, either. Admittedly, the Falcons don’t come without their own warts. They’ve dropped four in a row and stand 4-8. Both teams are two of the biggest disappointments in the NFL. All things considered, the value in this game is in the six-point spread. 

With both teams plummeting, expect a mistake-filled contest. That lends itself to a three or four point game down the stretch.  

Pick: Atlanta (+6)

Los Angeles Rams (-3) at Chicago Bears

Much like the Chiefs-Ravens clash, the Sunday Night Football matchup has the same great defense vs. great offense narrative. Historically, defense usually prevails. But if this season has been any indication, this isn’t your dad’s NFL anymore. Offenses have never had it easier than today.

That’s why we’re backing the Rams. The Bears are coming off an ugly 30-27 overtime loss to the Giants — you know, the same Giants’ team that’s been absolutely pitiful on offense all year long. Los Angeles, with an array of playmakers, an aggressive playcaller in head coach Sean McVay, and offense-friendly rules, can pick them apart.     

Making matters worse, Chicago might have to send in Chase Daniel at quarterback again. As of this writing, Mitch Trubisky remains doubtful for the primetime matchup. Daniel has been pedestrian at best in two starts, tossing three touchdowns and two interceptions. That won’t be enough if you’re trying to keep pace with the Rams’ high-flying attack. 

Pick: Los Angeles (-3)
