NFL Week 13 wrapped up Tuesday night when the Baltimore Ravens took care of business against the Dallas Cowboys. Week 14 features a full slate of games headlined by Patriots visiting the Rams on Thursday night football. In addition, there are a few must see matchups this coming weekend. The Steelers visit the Bills on Sunday night football and the Ravens will visit the Browns in an AFC North divisional matchup.
I will highlight a few of the biggest line moves so far for Week 14!
New England Patriots vs Los Angeles Rams
Opening Line: Rams -5 Over/Under 44.5
Current Line: Rams -5.5 Over/Under 44.5
The Rams opened as 5-point favorite for the Thursday Night rematch of Super Bowl 53. However, the line moved to 6.5 and quickly moved back to 5.5 Rams. I expect there will be balanced action on this game. Currently Rams are receiving 52% of the money. Despite the Patriots crushing the Chargers in Week 13 the line thus far has balanced action. Also, the Rams are coming off a huge divisional win against the Cardinals in Week 13.
Houston Texans vs Chicago Bears
Opening Line: Texans -2 Over/Under 45.5
Current Line: Pick Em Over/Under 45
Thus far one of the biggest line movement of the week is this matchup. The Texans opened as 2-point favorite. However, currently the line is sitting at Pick Em. As a result, sharp money has come in on the Bears. Lastly, both teams are coming off Week 13 losses.
Minnesota Vikings vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Opening Line: Buccaneers -6.5 Over/Under 52.5
Current Line: Buccaneers -6.5 Over/Under 51.5
Buccaneers opened as 6.5-point favorite and the line is steadily holding there. Bucs were on a bye week in Week 13 and the Vikings are coming off two close wins in Week 12 and Week 13, respectively. Furthermore, I expect the books will need the Vikings come Sunday afternoon. Lastly, both teams are fighting for playoff spot as we come down the stretch in the season.
Pittsburgh Steelers vs Buffalo Bills
Opening Line: Steelers -1.5 Over/Under 47.5
Current Line: Bills -2.5 Over/Under 46.5
First, this game is the biggest line move week as of Wednesday morning. Steelers opened as a 1.5-point favorite before their game on Monday against the Washington Football Team. However, Steelers suffered their first loss of the season against comeback player of the year front runner Alex Smith and the Washington Football Team. As a result, the line quickly shifted from Steelers as a favorite to the Bills now being favored by 2.5 points. Furthermore, the Bills are coming off a dominating win against the 49ers on Monday Night. Lastly, as of Wednesday morning the Steelers activated James Conner off the Reserve/COVID-19 list and will be able to play Sunday night.
Baltimore Ravens vs Cleveland Browns
Opening Line: Ravens -1 Over/Under OFF
Current Line: OFF Over/Under OFF
Cleveland Browns dominated the Titans in Week 13. Browns had a 38-7 lead at halftime against the Titans and went on to win the game 41-35. Furthermore, Baker Mayfield set a franchise record of four passing touchdowns in the first half. Baltimore Ravens thrashed the Dallas Cowboys Tuesday night winning the game 34-17 to put them right back into the playoff hunt. Furthermore, the biggest news was Dez Bryant testing positive for COVID-19 prior to kickoff Tuesday night. Currently, the line is off the board as await testing results for the Ravens.
