2018 NFL Week 14 Odds, Overview & Predictions for Each Game

Written by on December 3, 2018

The Green Bay Packers were stunned at home by Arizona on Sunday as two-touchdown favorites. And it cost Coach Mike McCarthy his job. Offensive coordinator Joe Philbin will serve as the interim head coach. Philbin was 24-28 in three-plus seasons as the Miami Dolphins’ head coach from 2012-15. Here’s a look at the Week 14 Odds at MyBookie.

2018 NFL Week 14 Odds Overview & Predictions for Each Game

Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans (-4)

The Titans go for the season sweep. They won in Jacksonville 9-6 in Week 3. Marcus Mariota directed three scoring drives in relief of Blaine Gabbert, including one in the fourth quarter. Mariota is the team’s starter but didn’t that game because he was a bit banged up. Mariota improved to 5-2 against Jacksonville, his most wins against any opponent. The Jags upset the Colts on Sunday and the Titans rallied past the Jets. Pick the Titans.

NY Jets at Buffalo Bills (-3.5)

The first meeting of the year between AFC East rivals. The Bills were 21-17 losers at Miami on Sunday. Buffalo rookie QB threw for 231 yards and ran for 135 to set a franchise record for rushing yards by a quarterback for the second week in a row. The Jets lost their sixth straight, 26-22 in Tennessee. New York was up 16 at one point. Malcolm Butler intercepted Josh McCown’s pass with 21 seconds left to seal Tennessee’s victory and the Jets’ collapse.  

Carolina Panthers at Cleveland Browns (+1)

The Panthers lost their fourth in a row Sunday to fall to .500. It was 24-17 in Tampa. Cam Newton tied a career high with four picks. Star tight end Greg Olsen left with a foot injury and reports are that he’s done for the year. The Browns were spanked in Houston 29-13 to see their two-game winning streak end. Take Cleveland.  

Atlanta Falcons at Green Bay Packers (-4.5)

The Packers were shocked 20-17 by Arizona and their playoff chances are gone at 4-7-1. McCarthy probably deserved to be gone. Mason Crosby missed a 49-yard field goal as time expired. Atlanta lost its fourth straight, 26-16 to the Ravens. Baltimore held the Falcons to 131 total yards — Atlanta’s worst showing since a 105-yard effort against San Francisco on Dec. 12, 1999. Go Packers.  

Baltimore Ravens at Kansas City Chiefs (-7.5)

The Ravens won a third straight Sunday, 26-16 in Atlanta. Rookie QB Lamar Jackson carried 17 times for 75 yards, including a 13-yard scoring run in the first quarter that turned out to be the Ravens’ lone offensive touchdown. The Chiefs, who shockingly waived star RB Kareem Hunt on Friday when a disturbing video of him beating up a woman was released, won 40-33 in Oakland. Go Chiefs.  

New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins (+7.5)

The Pats can clinch the AFC East title with a win because they beat the Dolphins 38-7 in Week 4. Tom Brady threw for 274 yards and three touchdowns. He’s now 15-1 in his career as a starter vs. Miami. The Pats downed Minnesota on Sunday and Miami beat Buffalo. Take the Fins. To cover.  

New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Bucs (+8)

The Bucs were Week 1 winners in New Orleans, 48-40. Ryan Fitzpatrick highlighted a 417-yard, four-touchdown performance with two scoring strikes of more than 50 yards. He’s now on the Tampa Bay bench. The Saints hadn’t lost since until last Thursday in Dallas. Tampa knocked off Carolina on Sunday. Go Bucs here.  

NY Giants at Washington Redskins (-1.5)

Short week for the Skins as they were in Philly Monday. New York upset the Chicago Bears on Sunday. Washington won at the Giants in Week 8, 20-13. Safety D.J. Swearinger intercepted two passes, Matt Ioannidis had 2 1/2 sacks, and the Redskins rode their defense to the victory. Giants are playing much better of late, though, and we like them here.  

Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans (-4.5)

Houston was 0-3 when it visited Indianapolis in Week 4 and easily could have lost that game, which would have been the season. Instead, the Texans won 37-34 in overtime and haven’t lost since. – Ka’imi Fairbairn hi the winning field goal. The third-year kicker missed a 59-yarder to win the game at the end of regulation. Take Houston.  

Cincinnati Bengals at LA Chargers (-14.5)

The Bengals are simply a mess. They dropped a fourth straight Sunday, 24-10, vs. Denver. Amazing that Coach Marvin Lewis hasn’t been fired yet. To make matters worse, star WR AJ Green was injured in the loss and his season might be over. Still, that’s too many points. Take Cincinnati.  

Denver Broncos at San Francisco 49ers (+5)

The Broncos are suddenly in the wild-card chase. They won a third straight Sunday, 24-10 in Cincinnati. Rookie RB Phillip Lindsay rushed for a career-high 157 yards and a pair of touchdowns. The Niners were crushed in Seattle 43-16. San Francisco starting RB Matt Breida played only sparingly due to injury. Take Denver.  

Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys (-4)

A big one in the NFC East as the Cowboys could really put a hammerlock on the division with a win. Dallas was an upset winner in Philly in Week 10, 27-20.

The Cowboys are favorites for NFL Week 14 against the Eagles.

Ezekiel Elliott had 151 yards rushing and his go-ahead 1-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter was the difference. Take Dallas here.  

Pittsburgh Steelers at Oakland Raiders (+11.5)

This was originally the Sunday night game but has been flexed out. It’s probably Pittsburgh’s last-ever game in Oakland. The Raiders are terrible but at least put up a fight in Sunday’s 40-33 loss to the Chiefs. Derek Carr threw three TD passes for the Raiders, but Oakland lost three fumbles that led to three scores for the Chiefs and reached double-digit losses for the 12th time in 16 seasons. Take Oakland.  

Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals (+1.5)

A completely meaningless game between teams playing out the string. Arizona was a huge upset winner Sunday in Green Bay, though. Zane Gonzalez kicked a 44-yard field goal for Arizona with 1:41 left. The Lions were home losers to the Rams. Back Arizona.  

LA Rams at Chicago Bears (+3.5)

Matchup of division leaders and a potential playoff preview. One of the league’s top offenses in the Rams against one of its best defenses in Chicago. Will the Bears have QB Mitch Trubisky? He has missed the past two with a shoulder injury. He’s likely to play. Take the Rams.  

Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks (-3)

A big one in the NFC wild-card chase. Minnesota was beaten Sunday in New England and currently sits seventh in the NFC. The Seahawks are in fifth after Sunday’s blowout win over San Francisco. Russell Wilson had four TD passes. Take Seattle.
