NFL Week 14 Expert Betting Odds Picks

Just 26 points were scored when Cincinnati defeated Pittsburgh, 16-10, in Week 5. Look for far more points to be scored in Sunday's rematch. I like the total to go OVER 49 points.

Ben Roethlisberger had just come back from missing four games with a knee injury when the Bengals defeated the Steelers. Roethlisberger is healthy now and has thrown 10 touchdown passes in his last four games while averaging 383.2 yards passing during this span.

The Bengals are thin in the secondary likely to be minus Adam Jones and possibly two other veteran cornerbacks, Leon Hall and Dre Kilpatrick.

Only three teams score more points than the Bengals, who are averaging 27.8 points. The Steelers are tough versus the run, but rank 29th against the pass. There's a good chance the Bengals get back their star tight end, Tyler Eifert, to join A.J. Green, Marvin Jones and their other receiving weapons.

Wager the Browns Hosting the Niners

I can envision bad boy Johnny Manziel providing a spark for Cleveland so I'm going to lay 1.5 points with the Browns hosting San Francisco. I can't see the 49ers winning a second consecutive road game after upsetting Chicago last Sunday.

San Francisco has been outscored by an average of 16.5 points during its six road games. Manziel put up good numbers the last time he played, which was three weeks ago against Pittsburgh throwing for 372 yards while completing 73.3 percent of his throws.

Bucs are the Play Against the Saints

Tampa Bay is turning the corner. The much improved Buccaneers are 3-1 in their last four games. They catch a demoralized New Orleans squad that gave it all it had in a 41-38 home loss to unbeaten Carolina last week.

So I'm going to take Tampa Bay minus 3.5 points. The Saints are 1-5 away from their indoor Superdome. They have lost their last two road games by a combined margin of 71-20 to Houston and Washington. Contributing to the Saints' perceived low morale is the loss of leading rusher Mark Ingram for the season with a shoulder injury.

The Buccaneers have covered in four of their last five meetings with New Orleans.
