NFL Week 14 Picks Straight Up

NFL Week 14 Picks Straight Up
At the moment the NFL has 12 teams currently in playoff spots. However there is a log jam of 7 teams combined in both conferences that are 6-6 and fighting to sneak into the playoffs. That means there are lots of week 14 matches that feel more like playoff games than regular season. We sort through the rubble to try and find this weekend's best bets. Check out the best NFL predictions below.

NFL Week 14 picks

New Orleans Saints -8 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Before losing last week to the Cowboys in Dallas, the Saints had covered 9 straight games. Now they are once again on the road favored by more than a touchdown. A road team laying 8 points in a division matchup always feels like too much. Especially when the last time the Saints beat the Bucs by more than 8 points in Tampa was back in 2010.

This is always a potential bogey matchup for the high powered Saints who lost 48-40 to the Ryan Fitzpatrick led Bucs in week 1. Sunday it will be Jameis Winston under centre and he has gone 2 straight games without throwing an interception, both wins, after throwing 10 in his first 4 appearances this season.

The Bucs are the number 1 offense in the NFL by yards per game and the Saints pass defense ranks 30th in yards allowed per contest. Thats a bad combination for New Orleans. Tampa will be able to move the ball. That will be enough to cover this high number.

PICK: TAMPA BAY +8 (-105) at SportsInteraction

Los Angeles Rams -3 at Chicago Bears

In a potential playoff preview, the current Superbowl favorite LA Rams head to Chicago to play the Bears.

The total for this game opened at 53.5 and moved down to 52.5 and I feel this is still too high. We’re now in December and two highly talented playoff teams are going head to head. In whats expected to be freezing temparatures in Chicago on a Sunday night, these offenses won’t be sprinting up and down the field. The defensive lines for both the Rams and the Bears are playing at a high level. 

The best shot at victory for the Bears will be to keep Jared Goff and Todd Gurley on the sidelines. Now IF Quarterback Mitch Trubisky suits up for this one they will be more capable on offense which means they can shorten the game with more first downs and longer drives. If Trubisky is out then it’s hard to see the Bears putting up the 24+ points they would need to cover this total.

The Bears defense at home has been magnificent this season, and though this will be the offense they have played, they have the talent to slow the Rams down enough to keep this game from going over.

PICK: UNDER 52.5 (+100) at SportsInteraction
