Browns at Bengals: Bengals -5.5 (-110)

The Bengals seem to have gotten their groove back. Joe Burrow is playing great, and beginning to sneak into the MVP conversation. Meanwhile, the Browns welcomed back quarterback, and menace to society, Deshaun Watson last week. Despite getting the win over the Texans, Watson threw for just 131 yards and had a pick.

While the Browns have been winning on the back of their great defense, it won’t be enough this week in Cincinnati. The Bengals will find a way to put points on the board, probably close to 30. I think Cleveland will struggle to put up much more than 20 in this one. Lay the 5.5 with Cincy.

Vikings at Lions: Vikings at Lions: Vikings Moneyline (+110)

The Vikings are underdogs in this one? This line makes absolutely zero sense. Minnesota got smoked by Dallas a few weeks ago, but played both the Patriots and Jets close in their last two games. Now, everyone believes that there is worry that they are a fraudulent 10-2 team. On the other side, the Lions have won four of their last five, with a close loss to the Bills their only blemish. Things seem to be trending int the right direction.

All of that aside, the idea that Detroit is the better football team right now is just plain silly. Despite the Dallas loss, the Vikings have won four of their last five just like the Lions. The difference is that the worst team that Minnesota beat was the 6-6 Patriots. The Lions’ best win in that same span came against the 7-4 Giants, with the other three wins coming against teams with losing records.

The Vikings are the better team and are looking to wrap up the NFC North this week. At +110, you would be hard pressed to find better value than that this week.

Ravens at Steelers: UNDER 37 (-110)

This is one is going to be ugly. With Lamar Jackson looking unlikely to play, we will see Tyler Huntley taking the helm of an offense that has generally struggled to light up the scoreboard this year — even with Jackson. If you want an idea as to how this might go, we got a sneak peak in the Ravens 10-9 win over the Broncos last week.

The Steelers also boast a tough defense, so don’t expect Huntley to set the world on fire. That being said, Huntley still might be better than Pittsburgh’s rookie quarterback, Kenny Pickett. Pickett has been atrocious this season, throwing eight interceptions to just four touchdowns. Expect this game to be a race to 17. Take the under here.

Chiefs at Broncos: UNDER 44 (-110)

There are a few generous lines in this one. The Chiefs are only laying nine points in this one, but I find the under even more tantalizing. Remember, divisional games can be weird and sometimes they are closer than expected, even if the better team still prevails. Also, the under is 11-1 in Broncos games this year. Chiefs games have gone under more than half the time this year, as well.

This game being in Denver helps. That, plus the Broncos’ solid defense should be enough to keep the Chiefs from completely torching them. It also helps that Kansas City likely won’t need much more than two touchdowns to win this game. Look for the Chiefs to try and establish the run as they coast to a 23-13 win. Take the under.

Dolphins at Chargers: UNDER 53.5 (-110)

On paper, this seems like it would be a high-scoring affair. You have Justin Herbert taking on arguably the most potent offense in the league. While it may not be a defensive struggle, don’t expect too many fireworks in this week’s Sunday Night Football matchup.

Miami’s offense was just humbled by the 49ers’ defense in brutal fashion last week. Prior to that, they had been lighting it up against the dregs of the league. Los Angeles has been pretty average as of late. Injuries are keeping them from reaching their full potential. Expect both teams to break 20, but I’d be surprised if either gets to 30. Take the under.

NFL Week 14 Best Bets Recap:

  • Bengals (-5.5)
  • Vikings ML
  • Ravens/Steelers Under 37
  • Chiefs/Broncos Under 44
  • Dolphins/Chargers Under 53.5
