Odds To Win AFC South

NFL Week 14 Parlay Picks

Tennessee hosts Denver in a game with a ton of meaning for both teams. Who wins out when the Titans battle the Broncos? What’s going to happen to Pittsburgh as a favorite on the road against Buffalo? Also, will Joe Flacco or Tom Brady come up big when rivals Baltimore and New England clash in Foxboro?

Week 14 NFL 3-Team Parlay Pick

  • Tennessee -1.5
  • Pittsburgh -2

Denver at Tennessee
When:  Sunday, Dec. 11 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: Nissan Stadium, Nashville, TN
TV: CBS
Odds: Tennessee -1.5

Analysis: Tennessee battles Denver at home off their bye. The Titans are tied with Indianapolis and Houston atop the AFC South Division. This is a huge game for Tennessee.

It might be an even bigger game for Denver. The Broncos beat Jacksonville 20 to 10. But at 8-4 in the deep AFC, Denver is in a huge battle to just make it to the playoffs. Tennessee making the playoffs would be a surprise. Denver is supposed to make the playoffs.

With that being written, the Broncos are up against it in this game. The matchup favors the Titans who are one of the better rushing teams in the league. Denver’s Achilles Heel is stopping the rush. Once the Broncos bring up the extra man to stop DeMarco Murray and Derrick Henry, Titan QB Marcus Mariota should start slinging it all over the field.

I am betting that a rested Titans team covers the spread.

Pick: Tennessee

Pittsburgh at Buffalo
When:  Sunday, Dec. 11 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: New Era Field, Buffalo, NY
TV: CBS
Odds: Pittsburgh -2

Analysis: Pittsburgh is fighting for a trip to the AFC Playoffs. That by itself should lead to a great game from the Steelers on both offense and defense. Pitt goes into the battle against Buffalo after beating the Giants 24 to 14.

QB Big Ben, WR Antonio Brown and RB LeVeon Bell, should appreciate tackling Buffalo’s defense in this game. The Bills yielded 28 points to Oakland in their last. It’s hard to see Buffalo not giving up at least 30 to Ben, Brown and Bell.

The Pitt triumvirate should have a field day against Buffalo’s D while Pittsburgh’s defense has started to come together. I like Pittsburgh big.

Pick: Pittsburgh

Week 14 NFL 3-Team Parlay Pick

  • Tennessee -1.5
  • Pittsburgh -2
  • Baltimore +7

Baltimore at New England
When:  Monday, Dec. 12 at 8:30 pm ET
Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxboro, MA
TV: ESPN
Odds: Baltimore +7

Analysis: How good are the Baltimore Ravens? The test comes this week against the rival New England Patriots. Ravens versus Patriots has been an ongoing saga in the NFL since 2011. Baltimore truly came together as a football team in the 38 to 6 thrashing of the Miami Dolphins in Week 13.

Baltimore’s defense has turned into one of the top units in the NFL. The offense needed to kick it up a notch. It did against Miami. The Ravens are peaking at the right time. Although it won’t be easy, Baltimore can beat New England straight up in this game.

In any case, I love Baltimore at +7 to cover the spread versus the Patriots.

Pick: Baltimore
