NFL Week 14 odds: 5 favorites to bet on this weekend
NFL Week 14 features the Titans at the Raiders and the Saints at the 49ers. We take a look at five favorites bets for NFL Week 14.
5. Atlanta Falcons (-3) vs. Carolina Panthers
The Panthers are finished. They’re 5-7 and have been pounded two of the past three weeks by the Falcons and Washington Redskins. Both those games were at home. Now they go on the road, and, oh yes, Ron Rivera was just fired. There’s no reason to think Carolina shows much of a pulse here, and the Falcons have enough weaponry on offense to score 30+. Long day for the cats.
4. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3) vs. Indianapolis Colts
The Colts were a great story through the first half of the season. Then Jacoby Brissett got hurt, and they lost brutal games to the Pittsburgh Steelers and Miami Dolphins. At 6-6 and with T.Y. Hilton injured, it’s hard to see the Colts really rallying and making any kind of a move. Meanwhile, the Bucs are playing decent football and with a win, would love within a game of ,500.

3. Tennessee Titans (-2.5) at Oakland Raiders
Nobody is hotter in the AFC wild card race than Tennessee. The Titans inserted Ryan Tannehill into the starting lineup in October and haven’t looked back, riding his hot hand to a 7-5 mark. Tennessee is also moving the ball phenomenally on the ground with Derrick Henry, who has a case as the league’s best back. Conversely, the Raiders are struggling mightily after being hammered by the New York Jets and Kansas City Chiefs on the road over the past two weeks. This is the final hope for the Raiders, but they aren’t as good as a motivated and hot Tennessee team.
2. New Orleans Saints (-2.5) vs. San Francisco 49ers
The Saints are arguably the best team in the NFC if not all of football. The 49ers are terrific, but most of their players have never played in a spot this tough. New Orleans knows that with a win, it all but locks up first-round bye. San Francisco is good enough to pull off the upset, but with the game in the Superdome and Jimmy Garoppolo having to beat Drew Brees, the smart money is on New Orleans to handle business.
1. Houston Texans (-9) vs. Denver Broncos
Why wouldn’t you swallow the points in this situation? Houston is the better team by a wide margin. Everyone can go gaga over Drew Lock winning his first start, but he threw for 134 yards. He wasn’t good. The Texans are going to move the ball and Lock will make some mistakes against a smart, veteran defensive coordinator in Romeo Crennel.
