NFL Week 14 odds
The game odds for NFL Week 14 have been posted. Bet on the point spread, over under and the moneyline.
Thursday, Dec. 9
Pittsburgh Steelers at Minnesota Vikings – 8:20 p.m. ET
The Steelers hung around at home against the Ravens and eventually squeezed out a 16-15 win when Baltimore’s attempt at a game-winning two-point conversion failed. The Vikings suffered the ignominy of facilitating the Lions’ first win of the season, falling to Detroit by a 29-27 score on the last play of the game.
The Steelers pieced together their sixth victory of the campaign with solid efforts from Ben Roethlisberger (236 yards, two touchdowns), Najee Harris (107 total yards) and Diontae Johnson (8-105-2), as well as a seven-sack effort from the defense. Pittsburgh’s defense could also gain a significant advantage in this Week 14 matchup as well, considering both Dalvin Cook (shoulder) and Adam Thielen (ankle) could miss this contest.
Thielen went down in the first quarter of the loss to the Lions on Sunday, while Cook missed the game altogether. Kirk Cousins continued his recent hot stretch of play, throwing for 340 yards and two touchdowns to push his TD:INT to 25:3. Justin Jefferson stepped up in Thielen’s absence, posting 11 receptions for 182 yards and a touchdown. The Steelers will certainly hope to have veteran cornerback Joe Haden back from a foot injury to help defend Jefferson and the emerging K.J. Osborn, who scored a late touchdown versus Detroit.
Following each team’s Week 13 outcomes, the Vikings’ projected advantage of 4 points has already narrowed.
Sunday, Dec. 12
Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns – 1 p.m. ET
The Ravens blew a second-half lead in Week 13 and eventually were edged by the Pittsburgh Steelers on the road, 20-19. The Browns were off in Week 13 after being beaten by the Ravens, 16-10, in Week 12.
The Ravens allowed Lamar Jackson to be taken down seven times in Sunday’s loss, while the running game struggled against a Steelers defense that had been atrocious against the run in previous weeks. Baltimore also lost cornerback Marlon Humphrey for the season with a pectoral injury, which could naturally haunt the Ravens down the stretch, perhaps as soon as this Week 14 rematch with Cleveland — Jarvis Landry was able to put a 6-111 in the first game between the clubs with Humphrey available.
The Browns should be rested up for this rematch, with perhaps no player on their roster needing the down time more than Baker Mayfield. The embattled fourth-year signal-caller is dealing with multiple injuries and completed under 50.0 percent of his throws in the contest against Baltimore, but the week off, the homefield setting and Humphrey’s injury could certainly set the stage for a path of lesser resistance in Week 14.
This number has had some very interesting movement since the look-ahead line late last week, as the Ravens have lost their favorite status and are now notable multi-point underdogs.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans – 1 p.m. ET
The Jaguars continued spiraling down the stretch in Week 13, getting thumped by the Rams, 37-7. The Titans were off Sunday after enduring a 36-13 throttling at the hands of the Patriots in Week 12.
Trevor Lawrence and his lackluster group of pass catchers once again came up woefully short Sunday, with the rookie top overall pick throwing for just 145 yards. Neither Carlos Hyde nor James Robinson were able to get much going on the ground either, combining for just 48 yards on 17 carries. Lawrence did manage to throw for 273 yards and a TD in the Week 5 loss to Tennessee in Jacksonville, a game in which Robinson also ran for 149 yards and a touchdown. However, Jacksonville’s offense has only seemed to go backwards since that point, making it a challenge to score points even against questionable defenses.
The Titans will hope the bye week helped with the acclimation process with respect to playing without both A.J. Brown (chest) and Julio Jones (hamstring), who remain on injured reserve. In the Week 12 loss to the Patriots, Ryan Tannehill threw for all of 93 yards while the unlikely duo of Nick Westbrook-Ikhine and Cody Hollister served as his top wideouts. The going against Jacksonville should be a bit less challenging than versus New England, with the Jags allowing 267.2 passing yards per road game.
Following yet another stumble for the Jaguars, the Titans’ projected advantage has grown by a half-point since the look-ahead line.
Las Vegas Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs – 1 p.m. ET
The Raiders fought hard at home but still came up short in Week 13, losing to Washington by a 17-15 score. The Chiefs’ offense continued to look out of sorts Sunday night, but Kansas City still managed to notch a 22-9 win over the visiting Broncos.
Derek Carr couldn’t quite follow up his spectacular Thanksgiving Day effort against the Cowboys on Sunday, especially with Darren Waller missing the contest due to a knee injury. Carr and Hunter Renfrow (9-102) certainly continued displaying impressive chemistry, but Josh Jacobs once again went underutilized (13 carries) and there was very little production from other receivers. Waller played only a modest role in the Week 10 lopsided loss to Kansas City, but his mere presence as a threat would certainly be helpful in this rematch at Arrowhead.
Patrick Mahomes continued to struggle to look like anything beyond an barely above-average quarterback in Sunday night’s win, despite having a healthy group of pass catchers. Mahomes threw for 184 yards and barely completed 50.0 percent of his passes, and he’s now gone without a touchdown pass in back-to-back games. Mahomes will look to this matchup as a potential get-right spot, however, considering he threw for 406 yards and five touchdowns without an interception in the first game.
Despite Week 13 outcomes, KC’s original look-ahead line of -10 has shrunk slightly as the week begins.
New Orleans Saints at New York Jets – 1 p.m. ET
The Saints opened the Week 13 slate with a Thursday night home loss to the Cowboys, 27-17. The Jets hung tough with the Eagles, which played with backup quarterback Gardner Minshew, for a while, but Philadelphia eventually pulled away to prevail by a 33-18 score.
The Saints made the switch to Taysom Hill at quarterback Thursday, but they were still playing without Alvin Kamara (knee) and couldn’t achieve much offensive continuity. An inconsistent pass-catching corps – which now is down speedster Deonte Harris due to a three-game suspension handed down Monday — figures to affect Hill a bit less than it did the much less dynamic Trevor Siemian, and it also may not be much of a hindrance against a Jets team that isn’t capable of mustering much offense itself. The return of Kamara, which could be possible for this contest considering he practiced in limited fashion leading up to the game against Dallas, would also be a big boost.
The Jets’ Zach Wilson turned in a serviceable performance against the Eagles despite throwing an interception. The rapport between him and fellow rookie Elijah Moore, who posted a 6-77-1 line versus Philly, is encouraging, and a Saints defense that’s been more vulnerable to the pass than in recent years (250.1 passing yards per game allowed) could be ripe for a big play or two.
The public is showing some faith in the Jets, shrinking New Orleans’ projected advantage from 6.5 by a point.
Dallas Cowboys at Washington Football Team – 1 p.m. ET
The Cowboys didn’t do anything particularly well in their 27-17 Thursday night win over the Saints, but it was enough to help ease the heartbreak of a three-point OT loss to the Raiders on Thanksgiving. Washington remained hot with a fourth consecutive win, upending that same Las Vegas squad on the road, 17-15.
Dallas got one big run from Tony Pollard against New Orleans’ brick wall of a run defense, but the rest was mostly a joint effort of Dak Prescott and the defense. The Cowboys will have another tough test against a Washington front that’s now allowing the third-fewest rushing yards per contest (91.3), and that’s even been tightening up against the pass of late with only 217.7 passing yards per contest surrendered in the last three.
Washington has seemingly focused on limiting Taylor Heinicke’s exposure during the current winning streak and the approach seems to be working. With the fourth-year signal-caller putting up 35 pass attempts or fewer in those contests, he’s been able to produce an impressive 7:2 TD:INT. The ball-hawking Cowboys secondary should prove a good test, but coach Ron Rivera is likely to continue relying heavily on Antonio Gibson, who he’s fed the ball on 23 or more occasions in three of the games during that winning streak.
The look-ahead line of Cowboys -4.5 remains intact following Week 13 outcomes for each club.
Atlanta Falcons at Carolina Panthers – 1 p.m. ET
The Falcons dropped their third game in the last four via 30-17 defeat at the hands of the Buccaneers on Sunday. The Panthers were off in Week 13 but made news anyhow – they fired offensive coordinator Joe Brady in the wake of a 33-10 loss to the Dolphins in Week 12.
Atlanta’s offense just can’t seem to muster enough firepower against quality teams without Calvin Ridley, who remains away from the team while dealing with a personal issue. Kyle Pitts has unsurprisingly been the subject of plenty of defensive attention as a result, leading to a fair share of solid but unremarkable stat lines for most of his rookie season. Cordarrelle Patterson continues to be the team’s best offensive player, but it’s worth noting he was held to 72 total yards in the first meeting between the teams, a 19-13 Panthers win in Atlanta back in Week 8.
To say the Panthers’ offense is embattled is an understatement. It will come out of the bye once again operating without Christian McCaffrey, who suffered a season-ending ankle injury in the loss to the Dolphins. Rookie Chuba Hubbard will once again assume lead-back duties beginning with this contest against a Falcons team he produced a 24-82-1 line against in the first meeting. Atlanta remains most vulnerable through the air (250.3 PYPG allowed on the road), so Cam Newton will likely have ample chance to atone for a horrendous showing against Miami in which he completed just five passes for 92 yards and threw two interceptions.
Week 13 did nothing to alter the look-ahead line of Panthers -3.
Seattle Seahawks at Houston Texans – 1 p.m. ET
The Seahawks snapped a three-game losing streak with a divisional win Sunday, hanging on to beat the 49ers for the second time this season, 30-23. The Texans slogged through another forgettable Sunday, falling to the Colts by a 31-0 score in a game rookie signal-caller Davis Mills finished due to Tyrod Taylor’s wrist injury.
Seattle didn’t necessarily look good at times during it’s much-needed win and operated with a makeshift running back group that saw graybeard Adrian Peterson notch a team-high 11 carries and Travis Homer lead the way with 80 yards, 73 which came on a fake-punt run. Russell Wilson took four sacks and D.K.
Metcalf still didn’t quite look himself, but it was at least progress for the now 4-8 squad. Seattle is 2-1 against AFC South opponents and figures to have an excellent chance of notching its third win of the season against the division irrespective of whether Taylor or Mills is under center.
The word after the game was that Taylor would have been able to come back if necessary, but Monday brought the news the veteran quarterback might have torn ligaments. If that’s the case, then it’s almost certainly Mills coming back to helm the offense after putting together a fairly solid final four games as a starter earlier in the season when Taylor sat due to a hamstring injury. Mills completed over 70.0 percent of his passes in three of those contests and also authored a pair of 300-yard performances, with the experience and confidence gained in those games likely to serve him well versus a Seattle defense allowing 275.8 passing yards per game.
Given the difference in outcomes for the two teams Sunday, it’s of little surprise the Seahawks’ original look-ahead of -6.5 has grown slightly.
Detroit Lions at Denver Broncos – 4:05 p.m. ET
The Lions got their long-awaited first win of the season, and on the last play of the game at that, versus the Vikings in Week 13. The Broncos went up against the kingpins of their AFC West division and came up short, losing to the Chiefs at Arrowhead by a 22-9 score.
Jared Goff was the hero in the end Sunday thanks to his last-second touchdown pass to Amon-Ra St. Brown, and his 296-yard, three-touchdown effort was certainly impressive from a statistical standpoint. However, he’ll have a formidable challenge on his hands against the Broncos, which limited Patrick Mahomes to under 200 yards Sunday night and are giving up just 211 passing yards per game in the last three. If D’Andre Swift is able to make it back from his AC joint injury, that would also naturally be a boost to Detroit’s offense.
Javonte Williams got his first opportunity to serve as a true lead back Sunday night and excelled through both the ground and air, finishing with 178 total yards and a receiving TD. Melvin Gordon’s hip and shoulder injuries kept him out of action versus Kansas City, but head coach Vic Fangio said Monday he expects the veteran to practice this week. Denver may not really need him, however, considering both Williams’ stellar performance and the fact Detroit allows 131.1 rushing yards per contest.
Despite Detroit’s win and Denver’s loss Sunday, the early Broncos -8 line remains unchanged.
New York Giants at LA Chargers – 4:05 p.m. ET
The Giants were forced to go with Mike Glennon at quarterback on place of Daniel Jones (neck) and were also still down two receivers, leading to a 20-9 loss to the Dolphins on Sunday. The unpredictable Chargers enjoyed one of their upswings in Week 13, pounding the Bengals on the road by a 41-22 score.
Glennon came out of the contest against the Dolphins with a concussion, yet another in the seemingly endless list of injuries the Giants have suffered on the offensive side of the ball this season. If neither he nor Jones is available for this Week 14 cross-country trip, Jake Fromm, just signed off the Bills’ practice squad Tuesday, will be in line to make his first NFL start. Monday reports indicate Fromm will indeed take plenty of first-team reps in practice this week.
The Chargers certainly have plenty to be pleased with following Sunday’s game, but they’ve been at this juncture before. Los Angeles has followed each of their previous 40-point performances this season with losses, and Monday, they placed Keenan Allen on the reserve/COVID-19 list as a result of a positive test. If Allen is vaccinated, he will have a chance to still make it back for this contest and face a Giants team that’s allowed an NFC-high 277.8 passing yards per game.
The public is big on the Bolts and unsurprisingly down on the G-Men, as the original look-ahead line of Chargers -7.5 has grown significantly in the Week 13 aftermath.
San Francisco 49ers at Cincinnati Bengals – 4:25 p.m. ET
The 49ers fell just short to the division-rival Seahawks, with a Jimmy Garoppolo last-second pass attempt near the goal line getting batted down. The Bengals took a step back in a season that’s featured some growing pains, as they suffered a surprising 41-22 loss to the Chargers at home.
San Francisco did plenty right in Sunday’s divisional loss, but a receiving corps missing Deebo Samuel (groin) didn’t quite have enough to keep up. George Kittle did turn in a vintage performance for San Fran with a 9-181-2 line and rookie back Elijah Mitchell scored on the ground again. The Niners defense will certainly hope to get stud linebacker Fred Warner back for this contest after he missed Sunday’s game with a hamstring injury, as Joe Mixon has been one of the league’s best backs despite a sub-par day Sunday.
Mixon indeed garnered just 54 rushing yards on 19 carries and also committed a key fumble that was returned 81 yards for a back-breaking touchdown. Nevertheless, he was far from the only culprit in Cincy’s ugly loss, one Zac Taylor and his staff are now charged with quickly dissecting with another quality West Coast opponent coming to town. On paper, Cincy could have some trouble slowing down the Niners’ air attack – the Bengals are allowing 268.8 passing yards per game.
In what should be a very interesting line to monitor this week given the injuries in play for San Fran, the Bengals are narrow home favorites.
Buffalo Bills at Tampa Bay Buccaneers – 4:25 p.m. ET
The Bills are on the big stage Monday night for a marquee matchup against the division-rival Patriots as they look to build on a big Thanksgiving Night win over the Saints. The Buccaneers moved to 9-3 with a third straight performance of at least 30 points, thumping the Falcons by 13 points on the road.
The quarterbacks and defenses will take center stage for this contest, and even with each team’s well-earned reputation for wreaking havoc on opposing offenses, the projected total of 52.5 points starts the week as the slate’s highest. The Bills run the ball under 40.0 percent of the time, so the fact Tampa Bay’s run defense is nearly unsolvable doesn’t figure to alter their plans much.
The Buccaneers got a vintage performance from Tom Brady on Sunday, when he threw for four touchdowns and 368 yards. Naturally, the resistance posed by Buffalo’s secondary should be much stiffer than that offered by Atlanta. The Bills have been at their best defensively at home, but they’re still allowing just 202.3 passing yards per away contest. Buffalo’s rush defense on the road has also been elite, conceding 88.3 rushing yards per away contest.
Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers – 8:20 p.m. ET
The Bears didn’t have enough on offense yet again in Week 13, with the Andy Dalton-led attack producing 22 points but still losing by 11 at home to the Cardinals. The Packers were off in Week 13 after an impressive 36-28 win over the Rams in Week 12.
Justin Fields may be ready to return for Chicago in this primetime contest after missing the last two games with a rib injury. However, the results may not be much different, as the Bears’ offense seems to be mostly stuck in neutral no matter who’s leading it. The ongoing absence of Allen Robinson (hamstring) certainly doesn’t help, and the Bears fell at home to the Packers by a 24-14 score back in Week 6 with both Fields and Robinson available.
Aaron Rodgers and his pass catchers were in impressive form during the aforementioned win over Los Angeles, with the future Hall of Famer throwing for 307 yards and two scores and the Davante Adams-Randall Cobb duo combining for 199 receiving yards. Aaron Jones also made it back from his knee sprain in that contest but only handled 10 carries to A.J. Dillon’s 20, yet he should be back to a more normal workload following the week off. The Bears run defense has been vulnerable, giving up 120.5 rushing yards per road contest.
Even with the Bears’ loss Sunday, the Packers’ look-ahead line of -12.5 has shrunk by one point as the week begins.
Monday, Dec. 13
LA Rams at Arizona Cardinals – 8:15 p.m. ET
The Rams took care of business at home against the Jaguars on Sunday, posting a 37-7 win in Week 13. The Cardinals went on the road and commemorated the returns of Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins from ankle and hamstring injuries with a 33-22 win over the Bears.
Matthew Stafford and his air attack enjoyed a resurgent performance against Jacksonville’s vulnerable secondary, while Sony Michel put on an impressive 24-carry, 121-yard effort in place of Darrell Henderson (thigh). Odell Beckham also got into the end zone for the second time as a Ram, with the entire performance seemingly a good tune-up effort ahead of this showdown with Arizona.
The Cardinals notched a 37-20 win over the Rams in L.A. back in Week 4, a game in which Murray threw for 268 yards and ran for another 39. Murray only needed to put the ball up 15 times against Chicago, but he, Hopkins and A.J. Green figure to be a lot busier in this game. The Rams have been a more vulnerable pass defense on the road (245.5 PYPG allowed), and given they only allow 92.2 rushing yards per contest when traveling, the onus may indeed be on the air attack to produce.
In a fascinating game for wagering purposes, the public has bet the Rams a bit, moving the Cardinals’ original -3 line down to -2.5 as the week begins.
