2019 NFL Week 14 Betting
We have officially reached the last quarter of the 2019 NFL regular season when games get underway in Week 14. All teams have played the same number of games and to make things more interesting, all but two of the 16 games on the schedule will be played between conference members with six being divisional contests. We could have a clearer picture of the playoff scenarios, or it could be just a jumbled mess by the time the games are done.
The betting week gets underway on Thursday night as the league returns to its normal schedule following the Thanksgiving Holiday. And for the first time in six weeks we don’t have a matchup between division foes. That could be a good thing since we wouldn’t have the NFC tilt between the Bears and Cowboys to look forward to. The teams are coming off division titles in 2018, doing so in the same season for the first time since 1985. Dallas has won the last two meetings between the storied franchises.
Nine games make up Sunday’s early slate with two divisional contests from each conference. The NFC South has spent a lot of time together over the past few weekends and that trend continues once again when the Atlanta Falcons plays host to Carolina. We also have a black and blue division tilt between the Detroit Lions and Minnesota Vikings.
The Browns and Bengals will hook up twice in the final four weeks of the season with the first meeting going down in Cleveland. With a pair of victories last season, the Browns swept the season series from their AFC North rival for the first time since 2002. Jets coach Adam Gase got the awkward return to Miami out of the way earlier in the season. This week his team hosts his former employer in an AFC East battle.
The only out of conference game in the early Sunday schedule is a homecoming of sorts for Tampa Bay coach Bruce Arians. As offensive coordinator with the Colts in 2012, Arians took over as interim head coach when Chuck Pagano took a medical leave. Indy went 9-3 under Arians and won the AFC South, catapulting Arians to the head job in Arizona for the next five seasons. This is the second trip back to Indy for Arians since leaving.
While Arians is leading his Bucs, two of his former teams get together in the desert. Arians was OC when the Steelers beat the Cardinals in Super Bowl XLIII. He later coached the Cards and got them within a game of the Super Bowl in his second season. The Steelers and Cardinals have played just twice since their epic battle for the Lombardi Trophy following the 2008 season with Pittsburgh winning both times.
The final two games at the Oakland Coliseum will see the Raiders square off against AFC South competition. The first goes down this week when the Tennessee Titans visit. But the marquee matchup in the late afternoon window is a rematch of last year’s AFC Championship. And if this game is anything close to the last three between AFC heavyweights Kansas City and New England, fans are in for a treat. The Pats denied KC’s bid for its first Super Bowl visit since before the 1970 merger with a thrilling, 37-31, overtime win at Arrowhead last year. The teams combined to average over 73 points in the last meetings.
The week closes with two NFC divisional games. The Rams host Seattle on Sunday night with bragging rights in the West up for grabs. The Monday Night Football encounter has the Giants at Philadelphia in the East.
