The BetSided team is 28-23-2 on the season in our NFL best bets, and we’re again with 4 performs for the motion in Week 14.
With a number of groups on the bye this week, there are fewer spots to make the most of within the betting market. Despite that, our editors have scoured the slate to discover performs they’re assured wherein embody three favorites to win and cowl.
Let’s dive into the picks:
NFL Best Bets for Week 14
- Tennessee Titans -3.5 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
- Detroit Lions -2.5 vs. Minnesota Vikings
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers-San Francisco 49ers UNDER 37.5
- Kansas City Chiefs -9.5 vs. Denver Broncos
Tennessee Titans -3.5 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
The Tennessee Titans have been some of the enigmatic groups to wager on this season. Every time I assume their offense is fraudulent or their protection is just too banged up, they go and cowl the unfold in eight consecutive video games. Naturally, in a matchup that suited them effectively to grasp with the Philadelphia Eagles final week, they misplaced 35-10.
However, I’m not afraid to return to the effectively this week at dwelling in opposition to a Jacksonville Jaguars staff that’s banged up at a number of positions, together with at quarterback with Trevor Lawrence.
Before final week’s sport, the Titans’ protection was ranked No. 1 in opponent third down conversion share, high two in opponent yards/rush, and high three in opponent speeding TDs/sport and speeding yards/sport. They make groups turn out to be one-dimensional, and whereas that ought to have been a difficulty for Philadelphia final week, A.J. Brown in his revenge sport made them pay.
Jacksonville is mild years behind Philadelphia on the expertise meter and has had all types of points vs. Tennessee over the previous a number of years. Tennessee has received 11 of 12 division video games straight up versus the Jags, and is 9-2 ATS in these wins. – Ben Heisler
Detroit Lions -2.5 vs. Minnesota Vikings
I proceed to lose cash betting in opposition to the Minnesota Vikings, however I refuse to cease. They rank twenty ninth within the NFL in internet yards per play, but proceed to discover methods to win video games. The Lions rank twenty fifth, however their offense has been way more efficient.
Detroit ranks seventh in yards per play at 5.8, whereas the Vikings rank twenty first at 5.2.
On the defensive aspect of the ball, the Vikings rank thirtieth in opponent yards per play and have allowed 6.5 yards per play over their final three video games.
An enormous cause the Vikings have thrived over the previous few weeks is their pink zone protection has stepped up in a giant approach. In their final three video games, groups have solely scored a landing on 25% of their pink zone journeys in opposition to them, the second-best mark within the NFL over that stretch.
But now they’re about to meet their match in that division. The Lions maintain the best pink zone offense within the NFL, scoring a landing on 73.91% of their pink zone journeys.
I believe Detroit will get its revenge from early within the season and I’m keen to again them as 1-point favorites on Sunday. – Iain MacMillan
Tampa Bay Buccaneers-San Francisco 49ers UNDER 37.5
Now that Brock Purdy is beneath heart for the 49ers, issues really feel lots totally different than earlier than. The 49ers – even with an elite protection and an awesome set of ability place gamers – appear vulnerable to a loss this week.
Kyle Shanahan is nice sufficient to get Purdy to a satisfactory stage on Sunday, however he’s going in opposition to Tom Brady – who’s coming off one more game-winning drive.
I’ll stick to making a decide on the overall. Even at 37.5, I just like the UNDER on this sport.
There have been three video games this yr with a complete at 37.5 or decrease and the beneath in 2-1 in these video games. Both groups are within the high 5 of opponent factors per sport this season. Their dominance on the defensive aspect of the ball goes to be on full show this week with a struggling Bucs offense and a third-string quarterback. – Donnavan Smoot
Kansas City Chiefs -9.5 vs. Denver Broncos
There is completely no approach that I can belief Denver on this spot.
The Broncos are the worst scoring offense within the NFL, and now they’ve to tackle a high-powered Chiefs staff that has destroyed them for a number of seasons now.
Russell Wilson has thrown only one landing move all season at dwelling, and he and the Broncos haven’t been ready to purchase a rating within the pink zone all season lengthy.
Give me the Chiefs to win this sport working away. – Peter Dewey
