NFL Week 14 is here. Picking NFL games straight up is hard enough, but picking against the spread is even tougher. Here are the NFL week 14 picks against the spread. (Spreads are from Tallysight as of Tuesday morning)
Last Week: 6-6-1
Thursday Night Football
New England Patriots at Pittsburgh Steelers (-6)
The Steelers will be without Kenny Pickett and the offense has struggled even with him in the lineup. They should be able to win at home, but the Patriots can keep it to a low-scoring game.
Los Angeles Rams at Baltimore Ravens (-7)
The Ravens are coming off a bye week and will have a huge advantage taking on the Rams at home. With the extra rest, Baltimore should have a good performance.
Detroit Lions (-3) at Chicago Bears
Chicago has been more competitive lately, but the Lions have been taking care of business all season long. Jared Goff will be protected and Detroit can cover on the road.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Atlanta Falcons (-2.5)
The Buccaneers can win this game to tie up the NFC South and create some exciting last few weeks of the season. Baker Mayfield and Mike Evans will be able to connect enough for them to win on the road.
Indianapolis Colts (-1) at Cincinnati Bengals
Cincinnati surprisingly won on the road at Jacksonville in week 13. Jake Browning played better at quarterback than expected. It will be hard for them to win two weeks in a row, especially on a short week.
Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints (-5.5)
The Saints’ offense can use this game to get things right after losing three straight. They should be able to beat the Panthers by a touchdown, as they won the first game between the teams by a field goal on the road.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Cleveland Browns (-1.5)
With Trevor Lawrence having an ankle sprain, the Browns’ defense can have a big performance against the Jaguars. Joe Flacco played decently in his debut for the Browns and just has to protect the football in this game.
Houston Texans (-6.5) at New York Jets
The Jets have no idea what they are going to do about the quarterback position. Houston will struggle without Tank Dell, but C.J. Stroud has shown enough as a rookie to overcome that injury.
Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco (-10.5)
The 49ers are playing lights out since their bye week. They should beat the Seahawks, but this is a large spread. Seattle will be properly motivated, as they need to win to stay in the playoff hunt. They also had extra time to prepare for this game after playing on Thursday Night Football.
Minnesota Vikings (-3) at Las Vegas Raiders
Both teams are coming off a bye. The Raiders are playing tougher since Antonio Pierce took over as head coach. They are at home and the Vikings were weighing their options at quarterback, which can’t instill much confidence.
Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs (-2.5)
The Chiefs are struggling lately, but the Bills have been for a longer period. Kansas City will want to get things right and make it tougher for the Bills to make the playoffs, making their path later on a little easier if the Bills do right the ship.
Denver Broncos at Los Angeles Chargers (-3)
Denver’s hot streak is over as they lost to the Texans in week 13. The Chargers got a tough road win in bad conditions and will probably look forward to playing at home in week 14.
Sunday Night Football
Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys (-3.5)
The Cowboys are on fire right now and Dak Prescott has inserted himself into the MVP discussion. Philadelphia keeps all games close though, so they will at least do that if they don’t win outright.
Monday Night Football
Green Bay Packers (-6.5) at New York Giants
Green Bay is starting to hit their stride. Jordan Love looks like he is developing with more playing time. The Giants have had a bad season and likely just want it to be over.
Tennessee Titans at Miami Dolphins (-14)
This is a big line, but the Dolphins have shown that they can put up a ton of points on opponents who aren’t elite. The Dolphins will score and the Titans won’t be able to keep up.
