2018 NFL Week 14 Early Betting Picks for Every Game
Kenny Vaccaro’s 1-year deal with the #Titans included no guarantees, but he gets a $100K bonus if he’s on the Week 1 roster (when his salary would also be locked in) and the max is $2.75 million with incentives. Solid upside in soft safety market.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans (-1)
The Titans are playing at home, but I’m thinking their decision to change head coaches could affect them in 2018 and I’m not sure it’s going to be in a positive way. Jacksonville ranked in the top five in scoring and fewest points allowed. Jaguars 27 Titans 24

New York Jets at Buffalo Bills (-4)
The rebuilding Bills win at home as part of a regular season sweep against the Jets. Buffalo 24 NY Jets 21
Los Angeles Rams at Chicago Bears (+2.5)
Todd Gurley and the Los Angeles Rams are far superior to their mostly younger counterparts in Chicago and the only Super Bowl contender in this matchup. Rams 31 Bears 20
Carolina Panthers at Cleveland Browns (+2.5)
By the time Week 14 rolls around, cam newton and the Carolina Panthers will be locked in on securing a playoff berth and really just too much for a rebuilding Browns team that has to learn how to win as the vastly new team they’ve become from a year ago. Panthers 28 Browns 21
Atlanta Falcons at Green Bay Packers (-3.5)
I know Aaron Rodgers and the Packers are super difficult to beat at home late in the regular season once the weather gets cold in Wisconsin, but I’m feeling like Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons are the better offensive team in addition to unequivocally being the better defensive team.
Baltimore Ravens at Kansas City Chiefs (-2)
This Week 14 pairing looks like a matchup between two very solid teams that both enter the 2018 campaign with some significant questions. Something tells me that Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes is going to be better than Baltimore’s Joe Flacco in this contest. Falcons 27 Packers 24
New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins (+6)
The Dolphins usually give the Patriots fits when they play in South Beach in their AFC East divisional rivalry, having won four of their last five at home against the Pats. However, I’m thinking there’s no way Tom Brady and company want to lose any momentum prior to the start of the postseason. The Pats win and cover. New England 28 Miami 21
New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (+3)
The Saints have the edge at quarterback, offense…um…defense and special teams. Oh, did I mention the coaching matchup is ridiculously one-sided in Sean Payton’s favor? Saints 35 Buccaneers 21
New York Giants at Washington Redskins (-1.5)
I’m not expecting an overly compelling season for the Washington Redskins, but this is one of the games I have circled as a win for them in 2018 as they split with New York. Redskins 31 Giants 28
Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans (-7.5)
The Houston Texans now have the better quarterback when they meet the Indianapolis Colts after years of playing second fiddle at the most important position there is. Houston also has the far better defense and they’re playing at home as well. Texans 31 Colts 17
Cincinnati Bengals at Los Angeles Chargers (-7.5)
I like the Los Angeles Chargers to get the statement-making win late at home in this matchup, but I’m thinking this is a contest that Andy Dalton and the Bengals defense will keep close! Chargers 27 Bengals 21
Denver Broncos at San Francisco 49ers (-4.5)
Well, who would have thought just a couple of years ago that the San Francisco 49ers would be better than the Denver Broncos any time soon? Well, it’s real, making Jimmy G and the Niners the pick to win and cover. 49ers 27 Broncos 21.
Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys (Pick ’em)
This Week 14 road date is a contest that Philadelphia will no doubt, be very focused on winning. For me, Philadelphia has the more explosive and versatile offense and they’re far better than a Cowboys team that looks mediocre at best. Take the still, high-flying Birds to get the huge road win. Eagles 31 Cowboys 24
Detroit Lions at Arizona Cardinals (-1)
The Arizona Cardinals and Detroit Lions both have first-time head coaches, so the simple pick says play the Cards at home as a less than field goal favorite! Arizona 28 Detroit 24
Pittsburgh Steelers at Oakland Raiders (+3.5)
The Steelers are the more mature team and they should have some postseason positioning to do in this big, Week 14 matchup against Jon Gruden’s rebuilding Oakland Raiders. Pittsburgh 30 Oakland 24

Minnesota Vikings at Seattle Seahawks
I know Russell and the Seattle Seahawks are very difficult to beat in Seattle, but right now, the Minnesota Vikings are clearly the better team on offense, defense and special teams! I smell a big home loss for Seattle in this one! Vikings 27 Seahawks 21
