NFL Week 14 is finally here! Earlier in the week, we discussed which NFL Week 14 picks against the spread to exploit from the opening betting lines. However, in this article, I will identify my favorite NFL picks for Week 14 now that the lines have moved. Plus, I’ll show you which NFL betting sites are offering the best odds.
So, let’s dive into the games and discuss the top NFL picks this week.
NFL Expert Picks Week 14
Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns
The sharp money is coming in on the Browns, who are two games behind the division-leading Ravens. Cleveland is finally starting to get some of their better players healthy again, and that’ll be needed if the team would like to take things a step further this season after winning in the divisional round last year.
When these two teams met a few weeks ago, Ravens QB Lamar Jackson wound up throwing four interceptions. In general, he hasn’t looked that strong at all this season, and his running skills haven’t even been as dynamic as usual. Jackson usually torches this Browns team, but it looks like they figured something out in that last matchup. Look for Cleveland to keep putting the hurt on Jackson and run the football to victory.
Pick: Cleveland Browns -1 (-110)
San Francisco 49ers at Cincinnati Bengals
This was one of the first spreads that jumped out to me this week, with the 49ers not getting much respect here on the road. The Bengals have been one of my favorite teams to bet on this season, but there have been some concerning issues with health down the stretch.
Meanwhile, San Francisco has been rocking and rolling with Elijah Mitchell on the ground, and I would expect that to continue. The rookie out of Louisiana University has at least 22 carries in each of the last three games, and at least 27 in two of the last three.
Pick: San Francisco 49ers +1 (-110)
Buffalo Bills at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Maybe if we were playing this game last year, I would like the total going over 53.5 points. After all, the Bills offense is certainly not clicking at the same rate they were last season, and the Bucs are missing a couple of key players that make the offense slightly less dynamic.
The defenses will truly be the catalyst in keeping this total under the mark where we need it to be. Tampa Bay’s defense looks much better of late, allowing 17 points or fewer in two of the last three games while Buffalo has done the same in three of its last four games. I know we’re all expecting to see a shootout, but the total did drop down three points from the opening number.
Pick: Under 53.5 Points (-110)
