NFL Week 14 Best Bets
December 9, 2021
Let's keep rolling on our NFL betting picks and player prop picks. You will find the best picks and predictions for Week 14 below.
This week has four teams on bye. This is the last week of bye weeks in the NFL. We will see the Patriots, Eagles, Colts and Dolphins out of action this week. The Dolphins and Colts are especially a shame. They have been rolling and we have been getting quite favorable figures on their point spreads.
This week is difficult if you are looking to be a volume bettor. The spreads are generally sharp and we had to dig a bit just to find a few plays. The three plays we did find are rock solid, and the only three remotely favorable bets for the week.
Be sure to check out all of our NFL Picks and Predictions here.
Cleveland Browns -2 vs Baltimore Ravens
✅ The Browns defense has been rock solid, particularly at home. They have held five of their past six opponents to 21 points or fewer. Coming off the bye week, the offense should have a greater degree of health as well. Baker Mayfield desperately needed the week off. Additionally, a week of rest for Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt should get the offense back to a place where they can contribute.
✅ The Ravens offense has been nothing short of a disaster. They have been sorely lacking for explosive plays and Lamar Jackson has not protected the football. He has thrown six interceptions in his last three games. Additionally, the offense as a whole has failed to hit even 20 points in four consecutive games.
✅ With the Browns defense playing at such a high level and hosting such a struggling offense, they are a screaming value at home, laying less than a field goal.
Dallas Cowboys -4 vs Washington Football Team
✅ The Cowboys high end passing attack is finally going to have full health on the perimeter. Amari Cooper should not have limitations this week. That will signal the first time since Week 1 that he, Ceedee Lamb and Michael Gallup are playing at full health.
✅ The Washington offense has been reliant on the run during their four game win streak. They have been able to get away with low scoring wins and shorten games to hide the defense. They will not have that option against the Cowboys.
✅ The Washington defense is still not great in coverage and they lack a pass rush. Where they were able to get away with not putting pressure on the offense in recent weeks, that streak will end. It will be up to Taylor Heinicke and the passing game to keep pace with the Cowboys, and they are quite unlikely to do so.
Los Angeles Chargers -10.5 vs New York Giants
✅ The Giants continue to field the worst offense in the league, and things will not improve this week. We will see either Jake Fromm or Mike Glennon at quarterback. There is no better option as both give roughly nil chance to win the game. Whoever starts at quarterback, they will have a rough day on the west coast.
✅ The skill position injuries for the Giants do not help matters. All of Kadarius Toney, Kenny Golladay and Sterling Shepard will either be out or be playing injured.
✅ The Charger offense remains a high end one. The Giants might be able to keep it close against a team without competent scoring, but that is not the case here.
