Place Your Bets: Week 14



    If you live in Nevada, Oregon, Montana or Delaware, you're in luck. Otherwise, go to Canada or Europe, or those rogues in New Jersey and get your bet on for the NFL weekend!

    1. Baltimore at Washington (-2.5), Sunday, noon — The Ravens have played surprisingly well despite losing two of their best defensive players, and a lot of that has been because of the play of Joe Flacco. But Flacco is a completely different player on the road, and so are the Ravens. Oh, and they just so happen to be running into one of the hottest teams in the league led by Robert Griffin III. Give me the 'Skins.

    2. Kansas City at Cleveland (-6.5), Sunday, noon — The Chiefs surprised everyone last week with a little extra emotional motivation after the the tragic events in Kansas City that transpired just a day before the game. This week, that will probably be worn off, and the Chiefs are traveling to the Dawg Pound to face a Browns team that has been awfully scrappy this year and appears to have something going as of late.

    3. Atlanta at Carolina (+3.5), Sunday, noon — The Falcons have been begging to be beaten many times this year, but it's only happened once. Not necessarily calling a Panthers upset here, but look for a close game that comes down to the wire because, well, all of the Falcons' games come down to the wire. Add in the fact that Panthers QB Cam Newton is starting to resemble the Cam Newton of last season and it's a perfect recipe for a close, close game.

    4. Dallas at Cincinnati (-3.5), Sunday, noon — The Cowboys are perfectly capable of coming in and blowing the doors off the Bengals, but we've said that so many times this year and come out empty-handed that it just seems safe to roll with the Bengals in this game. The Cowboys are in a must-win situation for pretty much the remainder of their games, while the Bengals are right in the thick of the AFC playoff hunt coming off four straight wins.

    5. Houston at New England (-3.5), Monday, 7:30 p.m. — For the first time this season, I'm going against the Texans. Most of the time they're gold against the spread, but this week isn't one of those times. They're banged up defensively and have been gashed in the passing game as of late. That's never a good sign when you're facing Tom Brady, especially when it's in Foxboro. In fact, this one could get ugly.
