Week 14 of the National Football League has arrived. The season is winding down with this, and four more weeks left of the season. Bad timing for our local Arizona Cardinals. After playing a great game and beating the Steelers last week, they are off this week. The Cardinals have four games remaining on their schedule. Arizona is 3-10 on the season and has a game at home against San Francisco, followed by back to back games at the Bears and Eagles, followed by a season finale game at home against the Seahawks.
Let’s take a look at some of the best Week 14 games, and give our betting predictions:
Los Angeles Rams +7 at Baltimore Ravens; 40.5
This is a big game for both teams. The Los Angeles Rams have won three straight games, and sit in a tie with several other teams at 6-6 in the NFC Wildcard race. Matthew Stafford and his offense have found their groove a little bit. Kyren Williams coming back has helped that out quite a bit. The status of Puka Nacua is in question for this game, and going on the road does not seem like a fun chore. For Baltimore, at 9-3, the Ravens are looking to keep the top record in the AFC. If they win out, they will not have to leave the city for the postseason until the Super Bowl. Lamar Jackson is in consideration for the league MVP, so his final five games will be one to watch. The Ravens win this game by double digits over the Rams at home/
Seattle Seahawks +10.5 at San Francisco 49ers; 46.5
Two NFC West teams get together. The last time these two teams played, the 49ers smahed the Seahawks on Thanksgiving Night. Look for much of the same as they get together in this one. Brock Purdy and his 49ers offense has been on fire. What they did to a good Philadelphia team was a little shocking. The Seahawks got to feel snake bitten, as they have dropped three straight games, and had one of the best offensive performances of the season last week. Albeit, in a loss to the Dallas Cowboys. It will be tough for Geno Smith and the Seahawks offense to repeat that. San Francisco gets to 34 and wins by two touchdowns in this game. Take the 49ers -10.5!
Buffalo Bills +1.5 at Kansas City Chiefs; 48.5
Two teams that were projected to play in the AFC title game. And they still could. But, the Buffalo Bills are going to need to get hot, and stay hot. The Kansas City Chiefs are 8-4, and something seems off with them. Neither offense has clicked quit like we though they would. THe Bills are a more desperate team, as a loss here would really kill their chances. The Chiefs lose a rare fifth game here, and this one is at home. Take the Buffalo Bills to win this game straight up on Sunday.
Philadelphia Eagles +3.5 at Dallas Cowboys; 51.5
The Sunday Night Football game features a pair of NFC East teams. If the Eagles can go on the road and beat the Cowboys, the divisional race is pretty much over. That would put them essentially three games ahead with four to go. But, if Dallas can grab this home win, the divisional race would be tied, and so would the chance for the top seed in the NFC. Look for Dak Prescott to continue to play great football. He is throwing the football well, and making good choices. The Cowboys are going to beat the Eagles, who need a little rest these days. Take the Cowboys -3.5 at home!
Green Bay Packers -6.5 at New York Giants; 36.5
There may not be a hotter team right now than the Green Bay Packers. The Packers have won three games in a row, and are 6-6 heading into Week 14. Much of that has to do with Jordan Love, but you cannot forget about how well the defense has played for Green Bay. Look for Love to be good again in this one. The Giants are playing better, but still have offensive issues. Combine that with a Packers defense that is humming right now, and you have a Green Bay win on the road. Take the Packers to win this game 24-14 over the Giants, and move to 7-6 on the season!
There you have it. With no Cardinals game, those are our favorite games of the week. Despite that, still some great games on tap. Some interesting results will certainly come out of the action as well. Enjoy the week of football, and best of luck with all your legal sports betting!
