NFL Opening Odds: Week 14

Only four weeks remain in the NFL's regular season, and the NFL betting card gets more intense with each week down the stretch as contenders fight for their playoff lives. One such fight this Sunday night features two hated NFC East rivals in the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants.

The Dallas Cowboys are currently a 3.5-point favorite at home over the New York Giants at 5Dimes. Dallas had a four-game winning streak snapped by Arizona last week while New York lost its fourth straight game in a hard-fought loss to Green Bay. New York is 5-2 SU and ATS in its last seven games against Dallas, and can move into a tie for the NFC East lead with an upset Sunday night.

Three home teams opened as double-digit favorites this week at TopBet as Pittsburgh opened at -14.0 hosting Cleveland on Thursday night, Green Bay opened at -11.0 hosting Oakland, and Baltimore opened at -16.0 hosting winless Indianapolis.

Totals trended OVER for the fifth time in six weeks last week, but just barely at 8-7-1. The highest total on the board this week is in the Oakland at Green Bay game, set at 52.5 at BetOnline.

Remarkably, for the second straight week, favorites and underdogs split equally in Week 13 with an 8-8 ATS record, while home and road teams also split with an 8-8 SU record.

Key matchups with Week 14 Odds courtesy of Bovada:

Texans +3 at Cincinnati – T.J. Yates successfully navigated Houston to a win at home over Atlanta; can he do it on the road this week? Houston is 6-0 SU and ATS in its last six games, while Cincinnati is 1-3 SU and 0-3-1 ATS in its last four games, all against division rivals.

Saints -4 at Tennessee – New Orleans has won four straight both SU and ATS and Tennessee has won two straight SU and ATS behind huge rushing performances by Chris Johnson. Tennessee is fighting for an AFC Wild Card spot while New Orleans hopes to keep command of the NFC South.

Bears +3.5 at Denver – Denver is 6-1 SU and ATS since Tim Tebow took over at starting QB, and Denver now shares the lead in the AFC West. Chicago has lost two straight SU and ATS, and both Jay Cutler and Matt Forte are out with injuries.

Bills +7 at San Diego – San Diego broke an 0-6 run both SU and ATS with Monday night’s big win over Jacksonville, and still has a small shot in the AFC West. Buffalo is 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in its last five games.
