NFL Week 14 Odds

Tired of all that Christmas music (this early)? Well this week, put on an album celebrating 35 years of killer licks and sweet lyrics. I’m talking about ZZ Top’s hit machine Eliminator.

Week 14 in the NFL has some matchups that certainly evoke that title. Like the big tracks on that album, the rivalries stand the test of time and get better with age. So bust out your hi-fi or 8-track and let’s turn up the volume. Here are the lines for the slate of games at New Jersey sportsbooks.

Week 14 betting breakdown

Jaguars at Titans (-4.5): Tennessee, which needs a win to stay in the AFC wild card hunt, gets the edge from the books here having won three straight and five of the last six against its division rivals. The low total (38 at open) harkens back to the 9-6 barnburner earlier this year in Jacksonville.

Falcons at Packers (-3.5): Interestingly, this is the third straight meeting between the teams at Lambeau that happens on Week 14. Both teams are coming off embarassing home losses in Week 13. This opened at Packers -6 early in the week and then dropped to -3.5 at most books as of Sunday morning.

Ravens at Chiefs (-6.5): Baltimore has won the last three in KC, although the teams haven’t met at Arrowhead since Andy Reid took over in 2013. This line didn’t move much during the week and will likely close short of a full touchdown despite most of the public money coming in on the Chiefs.

Panthers (-1) at Browns: “Sharp Dressed Man” Cam Newton leads Carolina into this must-win game on the road for their playoff chances. The Panthers opened as two point favorotes but it was a pick at a few NJ books on Sunday.

Colts at Texans (-4): Houston, on a nine-game winning streak, has only won one of the last five times hosting Indy, but this current version of the Texans has ripped off nine straight wins.

Patriots (-9) at Dolphins: New England can clinch the AFC East with a win. Miami has won three of the last five hosting the Pats. This line held at Pats -7.5 for much of the week but there was some steam on New England during the weekend.

Saints (-10) at Buccaneers: Again, New Orleans can clinch the NFC South with a win against Tampa, which has won the last two meetings at home. Tampa also won the first meeting between these two teams in Week 1 of this season.

Giants (-3) at Redskins: The Mark Sanchez experience continues in Washington, leaving the Redskins as home dogs against the Giants. Odell Beckham was ruled out on Saturday but the line only moved half a point.

Jets at Bills (-4.5): The Bills get the recency bias after thumping the Jets at the Meadowlands last month. This opened at Bills -3.5 and slowly moved to -4.5 over the course of the week.

Broncos (-3.5) at 49ers: Denver can stay in the playoff hunt with a win over the eliminated Niners. Case Keenum has lost both appearances against San Fran in his career.

Bengals at Chargers (-15): Philip Rivers enters 2-4 against the Bengals but has yet to face them since moving to LA. The FanDuel look-ahead line last week was LAC -13, but Cincinnati once again failed to cover at home against Denver and the Chargers looked impressive in a comeback win at Pittsburgh.

Lions (-2.5) at Cardinals: The Lions need a win to keep their fading playoff hopes alive. Arizona is flying high after beating Aaron Rodgers at Lambeau.

Eagles at Cowboys (-3.5): Philly has won four of the last five at Jerruhworld, but stock on Dallas is high after a win over the Saints. These numbers will move if the Birds defend home turf against Washington on Monday night and show their drive to repeat still has legs.

Steelers (-10.5) at Raiders: Oakland has won all three meetings between the two historic rivals since moving back from LA. Two losses to the Raiders’ AFC West rivals (Chargers, Broncos) may have Tomlin and Big Ben humming “Under Pressure.”

Rams (-3) at Bears: LA enters with the best record in football and the NFC West clinched. Chicago is fighting for a division title and gets the return of Mitchell Trubisky at QB.

Vikings at Seahawks (-3): Big game to establish order in the NFC wild card race, where Seattle has a good grip on the top slot. Minnesota benefits the most from the NFC East maelstrom but hasn’t won in Seattle since 2006.
