Value Bet of the Week: Los Angeles Chargers (-14) vs. Cincinnati Bengals

The best value bet of the week also belongs to the largest favorites of the week, as the red-hot Chargers welcome the 5-7 Bengals. The Chargers are riding high following their huge win on Sunday night over the Steelers, and their offense will look to exploit a terrible Cincinnati defense that ranks last in the league in both yards and points allowed. The Bengals were already without QB Andy Dalton and now will be forced to go the rest of the season without star WR A.J. Green, which spells trouble against a Chargers defense that has allowed fewer than 20 points in six of their past eight games. Also consider taking the OVER of 47.5 in this one, as both teams have combined for over 51 points per game this season.

WEEK 14 NFL PICKS: Straight up | ATS

Largest Public Favorite: Oakland Raiders (+10.5) vs Pittsburgh Steelers

The public’s favorite team this week is a bit of a surprise, as the Raiders are currently taking in over 60 percent of total tickets in their matchup with the Steelers. While this looks like a lopsided matchup, the public is taking into consideration that the Steelers will be traveling across the country and will be also without emerging star RB James Conner. This is a situation where fading the public makes a ton of sense, as Mike Tomlin-coached teams typically bounce back from poor defensive performances, going 18-6 in games after allowing 30 or more points. Oakland has also been an atrocious team to back this season, going 4-7 against the spread.

Sharps Favorite of the Week: Buffalo Bills (-3.5) vs. New York Jets

At no point this season did I think that there would be a situation where big-money bettors would look to back the Bills, but here we are. Buffalo comes in as 3.5-point home favorites against the Jets only three weeks after they smashed New York 41-7 in the Meadowlands. The Jets are in the midst of a six-game losing streak that’s included a miserable record of 1-5 against the spread. Meanwhile, Buffalo is starting to gain some momentum with Josh Allen back at quarterback, having gone 2-0-1 against the spread over the past three weeks. Buffalo’s defense has played well at home this season, and will look to tee-off on rookie QB Sam Darnold who is slated to return to the starting lineup following a three-game absence. Expect this line to move further toward Buffalo as kickoff approaches if the current rate of 95 percent of total money placed on them holds.

Largest Line movement: Denver Broncos (-4) at San Francisco 49ers

Injuries can have a significant impact on line movement, and we see a great example of that happening this week in the Broncos-49ers matchup. Denver opened as six-point road favorites, but we’ve seen their number cut to -4 following the news that WR Emmanuel Sanders will miss the remainder of the season with a torn Achilles’. With the injury news in mind, the Broncos have been an excellent team to back over the past two months, going 6-1 against the spread over their past seven games. The public and sharp bettors are split fairly evenly thus far on this game, with 56 percent of total tickets coming in on the Broncos, but 53 percent of total money coming in on the Niners.
