With just five weeks left in the regular season, every NFL Sunday from now through January will feature plenty of high-stakes matchups. Week 14 is no exception, with four primetime games (including two on Monday Night Football on Dec. 11) among a number of compelling contests this weekend.
The most notable games on the slate include the Bills’ trip to Kansas City on Sunday afternoon and Eagles-Cowboys on Sunday Night Football before the MNF doubleheader of Titans-Dolphins and Packers-Giants.
We recommend the best NFL betting sites in Gaming Today’s overview of the odds for the best games of Week 14. Let’s break down the best NFL Week 14 odds and analyze a few of the best matchups here.
L.A. Rams (6-6) at Baltimore Ravens (9-3)
- Time: Sunday, 1:00 p.m. ET
- TV/Live Stream: FOX
The Rams enter this game on a three-game winning streak including Sunday’s 36-19 win over the Browns. With QB Matthew Stafford, WRs Cooper Kupp and Puka Nacua, and RB Kyren Williams healthy the last two weeks, LA scored 73 points total against the Cardinals and Browns. The Rams have put themselves in position to earn one of the NFC’s three wild card spots, but they would not be in the playoffs if the season ended today due to the tiebreaker. The Ravens have one of the best records in the league and are coming off a bye in Week 13. The battle between Stafford and Baltimore’s stout defense will be one of the most interesting storylines of the week.
The Ravens won six of their last seven, with all six wins coming by at least seven points, but the Rams feel like a good bet to keep this one close for at least the first half.
Pick: Rams first half (+4.5 at time of publishing)
Seattle Seahawks (6-6) at San Francisco 49ers (9-3)
- Time: Sunday, 4:05 p.m. ET
- TV/Live Stream: FOX
Seattle and San Francisco meet again after the 49ers won in Seattle on Thursday, Nov. 23. Though the 6-6 Seahawks remain in the playoff hunt in the NFC, they’ve lost four of their last five and would need a massive upset against either the Niners this weekend or the Eagles in Week 15 to avoid entering Week 16 at 6-8. Seattle had its moments in last Thursday’s loss to the Cowboys, including a three-TD performance by WR DK Metcalf but could not stop Dak Prescott and Co.
The Niners have looked like the best team in the league the last few weeks, including last Sunday’s dominant win over Philadelphia. It’s always risky to pick any team to beat a division rival convincingly, but it’s hard to see Seattle — or anyone, right now — keeping up with the Niners.
Pick: 49ers (-10.5 at time of publishing)
Buffalo Bills (6-6) at Kansas City Chiefs (8-4)
- Time: Sunday, 4:25 p.m. ET
- TV/Live Stream: CBS
The Bills need to finish the season strong to have a shot at a playoff berth, making Sunday’s trip to Arrowhead a must-win for Josh Allen and Co. Buffalo was unlucky to lose to Philadelphia in Week 12 and had its bye in Week 13. Oddsmakers understandably consider this one a toss-up given how well Allen has played recently (though his team has lost three of its last four to jeopardize its postseason hopes), while the Chiefs have lost three of their last five.
Expect this to come down to the wire, with both Allen and Patrick Mahomes finding a way to turn this into a high-scoring shootout in a game neither of these teams can afford to lose.
Pick: Over (47.5 at time of publishing)
Philadelphia Eagles (10-2) at Dallas Cowboys (9-3)
- Time: Sunday, 8:20 p.m. ET
- TV/Live Stream: NBC
Dallas has several things in its favor going into this game, besides homefield advantage at AT&T Stadium. The Cowboys are well-rested after last week’s Thursday Night Football matchup, while the Eagles are finishing up a brutal five-game stretch that included matchups against the Cowboys, Chiefs, Bills, and 49ers. Prescott and the Dallas offense have hit their stride in recent weeks, with at least 40 points scored in four of their last six games. The Eagles, on the other hand, are coming off an embarrassing blowout loss to the 49ers.
For the second week in a row, Philadelphia is the underdog against a team with a worse record, and oddsmakers were right about San Francisco being a tough matchup for the Eagles. The way the Dallas offense is rolling lately, the Over is the safest play here.
Pick: Over (52.5 at time of publishing)
