Suggestions when trying to beat the odds.
Before the fourteenth Sunday of the 2022 NFL regular season kicks off, let’s have some fun by taking a look at the spreads for the Week 14 games.
My overall record so far is 91-98-8. That’s behind the BGN Community, which is 94-93-8.
Here are the latest suggestions when trying to beat the odds. Also, don’t forget to check out our weekly picks and previews of every game on The SB Nation NFL Show’s The Look Ahead podcast featuring me, RJ Ochoa, and Rob “Stats” Guerrera (who was out this week).
NFL WEEK 14 GAMES
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (-7) at NEW YORK GIANTS: This game is going to be relatively close at the end until the Eagles score a touchdown to go up between 10 to 13 points. The Giants ultimately don’t have the firepower to keep up with Philly’s pace. PICK: Eagles -7
MINNESOTA VIKINGS at DETROIT LIONS (-2.5): As soon as I saw that Jalen Reagor guaranteed a Vikings victory in Detroit, I decided that the Lions were going to my Lock Of The Week for the Friday episode of The SB Nation NFL Show. Awful vibes for the Vikings, a team that’s simply due for some losses after starting out 9-0 in one-score games. They can’t keep getting good luck every week. PICK: Lions -2.5
CLEVELAND BROWNS at CINCINNATI BENGALS (-5.5): The Browns won very much in spite of their quarterback last week. And that was against the NFL’s worst team. The Bengals are a much better bunch. Joe Burrow is not somebody you want to play against right now. PICK: Bengals -5.5
HOUSTON TEXANS at DALLAS COWBOYS (-17): The only reason to take the points is because it’s a lot of points to take. But there’s no good reason to be betting on the Texans against a Cowboys team that’s demonstrably capable of blowing out inferior opponents. PICK: Cowboys -17
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS (-8.5) at DENVER BRONCOS: Methinks at least one of these two remaining Chiefs-Broncos games isn’t going to a cakewalk for KC. The Broncos’ vibes are impossibly bad to bet them to actually win … but they could muck it up and cover the spread. PICK: Broncos +8.5
CAROLINA PANTHERS at SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (-3.5): The Seahawks have been a bit shaky recently. The Panthers are coming off their bye. Carolina keeps it close with Seattle missing two of their top running backs. PICK: Panthers +3.5
