Cowherd’s NFL Week 14 Betting Picks and Analysis
— Action Rush (@ActionRushBets) December 11, 2020
It really is hard to believe that Week 14 in the NFL is here already, and the first one without bye weeks in months. Last week, Cowherd was 3-2 against the spread and he looks to continue the success in order to get back to .500. Here is a detailed look at his Week 14 NFL picks.
Tennessee Titans (-7.5) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Don’t love the hook, but we like it anyway says Cowherd.
- Outscored CLE 38-3 in the second half, embarrassed last week.
- Jaguars are still one of the worst in the NFL.
- Titans have the edge everywhere.
Cowherd’s Prediction: Titans in a rout.
Miami Dolphins (+7) vs. Kansas City Chiefs
The Dolphins continue to be one of the better teams in the AFC, and getting a touchdown piques Cowherd’s interest.
- Miami is 9-3 against the spread, best in the NFL.
- While they may win, the Chiefs struggle to cover at times this season.
- Miami is a good football team, and play every game close.
Cowherd’s Prediction: Chiefs w, fins cover.
Arizona Cardinals vs. New York Giants (+2.5)
EVERYONE likes the Giants.
- Giants have the coaching edge.
- Giants DL has the edge over the Cardinals.
- Kyler Murray is struggling, Giants are the chalk but a big pick this week.
Cowherd’s Prediction: 27-24 Giants.
Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Buffalo Bills (-2)
Buffalo is a hail mary away from being 6-0 in the last six.
- Steelers do NOT run the football, that doesn’t bode well against Buffalo.
- Josh Allen continues to get better.
- Buffalo at home continues to play well at home.
Cowherd’s Prediction: Buffalo 28-21.
Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns (+2.5)
Two best rushing offenses in the NFL, but Cowherd likes Cleveland.
- The Browns have a +10 sack differential since Week 6.
- Baltimore has lost four of six games, offensive identity struggling.
- Cleveland is the better team and are getting points.
Cowherd’s Prediction: Browns 28-26.
