NFL Week 14 Picks: Three Bets You Should Make Right Now

It is that time again to lock in my three best bets for the NFL early in the week! This is the time of the season where every game means something unless it is the Jags and the Lions playing. The season is getting to its boiling point, and divisional games are going on all over the league! This will be an exciting week, and I found three plays I love to lock in, so we beat the books on this line movement.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs Minnesota Vikings

Steelers vs Vikings Odds

The first Play I am looking at will be a battle between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Minnesota Vikings. These teams have had similar seasons as the Steelers and Vikings sit on the outside looking in of the postseason in their conferences. This will be a massive game on Sunday as their seasons are on the line and every game turns into a playoff game from this point on. The Vikings are coming off their worst loss of the season at Detriot, while the Steelers are coming off perhaps a season-saving win at home against the Ravens. The Play I am going within this game will be the Vikings -3 at home. I feel this line is a bit off and overreacting to last week’s loss for the Vikings and overreacting to the Steeler’s win. This is a bad Steelers offense who will struggle to keep up with the Vikings at home. I will gladly take the short home favorite who needs this game to keep their playoff hopes alive.

Minnesota Vikings vs Pittsburgh Steelers Pick

Baltimore Ravens vs Cleveland Browns

Ravens vs Browns Odds

The second Pick I want to lock in early will be a matchup between the Baltimore Ravens and the Clevland Browns. The Browns come into this game needing it badly as they have seen themselves fall out of the postseason race, placing tied for 12th with the Denver Broncos. The Browns will need this game on Sunday at home facing division rival the Baltimore Ravens. The Browns came into this season with high expectations with a pre-season win total of 10.5 and a high shot at making the postseason. The season has not gone the way of the Browns, including some off-the-field issues with other plays not liking the Play of QB Baker Mayfield. The Ravens are coming off a tough loss in Pittsburgh as they went for a two-point conversion to try and win the game. These teams played a few weeks ago in one of the sloppiest games of the season that included four turnovers by Lamar Jackson. The Ravens still won the game and will look to double up on the Browns Sunday. I am going with the Browns to win this game at home with their backs against the wall. The Browns are a slight favorite in this game, and this game is for their season as a loss here would all but kill their playoff chances. I will ride the short home favorite on Sunday!

Baltimore Ravens vs Cleveland Browns Pick

Los Angeles Rams vs Arizona Cardinals

Rams vs Cardinals Odds

The final Play I want to lock in early will be an affair between the LA Rams and the Arizona Cardinals. This will be a massive game for both teams as the Cardinals sit on top of the NFC West. The Rams will need this game to have any shot of dethroning Kyler Murray and the first-place Cardinals. This Rams team did not win a game in the entire month of November but did see themselves get a big win last week at home vs. Jacksonville to get back on track. I love the dog in this matchup in the Rams. The Rams hit a cold stretch, but they hit it at a decent time, and I believe they will get hot to end the season starting now. This is a relatively evenly matched battle, and I will gladly take the points in a division game like this. I believe this will be the best game of the week so kick back, enjoy and let’s cash the dog.

Los Angeles Rams vs Arizona Cardinals Pick

Pick: Rams +3 (-120)
