NFL Week 14 ATS Picks

What are the best NFL Week 14 ATS Picks? Below, is the very best NFL against the spread picks for Week 14. NYJ travels to Minnesota while Miami hosts Baltimore and Arizona hosts Kansas City.

New York Jets at Minnesota Vikings
When: Sunday, Dec. 7 at 1:00 pm ET
TV:  CBS
Betting Line: Minnesota -4.5

Analysis: The Vikings meet a Jets’ squad that hasn’t done much of anything lately. With only about two minutes left in their game against Miami this past Monday night, QB Geno Smith couldn’t lead the Jets down the field to kick a field goal.

In fact, the Jets are so one-dimensional that Minnesota figures to shut down both the Jets’ rushing attack and the Jets’ passing attack. Minnesota can be a dominant team on defense against an offense that averages 148.1 yards per game on the ground but only 163.3 yards per game through the air. Expect Minnesota to pretty much do what Miami did against the Jets and that’s stack the line of scrimmage and dare Smith to beat them with his arm.

Smith won’t be able to do it. More importantly, the Vikings should be able to play a bend but don’t break defense that forces the Jets into field goals. Minnesota QB Teddy Bridgewater is just better than Geno Smith. He figures to put the Vikings into the end zone a couple of times in this game. Minnesota is the team to back against the spread.

NFL Week 14 ATS Pick: Minnesota -4.5

Baltimore Ravens at Miami Dolphins
When:  Sunday, Dec. 7 at 1:00 pm ET
TV: CBS
Betting Line: Miami -3

Analysis: The Dolphins are favored by 3 points over Baltimore in this Sunday game, but there is something about the Fins that is disturbing. Miami has turned into a team that opponents can run the ball against. The Dolphins are allowing 118.6 yards per game via the rush. Denver ran for 201 yards against Miami’s rush defense 2 games ago while the Jets rushed for 277 yards even though Miami stacked the line of scrimmage.

Baltimore averages 131.8 rushing yards per game. The Ravens could run it down Miami’s throat, which means that the Dolphins will have to pass the ball in order to score with Baltimore. The Ravens are the team that deserves the against the spread nod in this matchup because their quarterback is just slightly better than Miami’s.  

NFL Week 14 ATS Pick: Baltimore -3

Kansas City Chiefs at Arizona Cardinals
When:  Sunday, Dec. 7 at 4:05 pm ET
TV: CBS
Betting Line: Arizona -1.5

Analysis: Kansas City had a golden opportunity to beat Denver and tie with the Broncos atop the AFC West. The Chiefs let that opportunity fade away via suspect play-calling on offense and terrible defensive play.

They should be okay this Sunday against the Arizona Cardinals, though. After starting out the season going 9 and 1 straight up, the Cardinals have dropped their last 2 contests. Losing to Seattle on the road is one thing, but giving up 29 points to Atlanta, even if they faced the Falcons in the Georgia Dome, is another thing. The problem for Arizona in this matchup versus KC is that even though the ‘Zona defense allows only 89.2 yards per game via the rush, it gives up 263.2 yards per game via the pass.

Kansas City should be able to exploit the Arizona defensive backs multiple ways in this matchup and will score enough to get the road victory and spread cover.

NFL Week 14 ATS Pick: Kansas City +1.5
