  • In Week 14 NFL picks against the spread, among the early lines to target is the Cleveland Browns at the Cincinnati Bengals
  • Cleveland has won five straight and eight of nine from Cincinnati
  • The Detroit Lions, 2.5-point home underdogs to the Minnesota Vikings, are 7-2 ATS in their last nine intra-divisional games

Rejoicing following another win over the Kansas City Chiefs, the Cincinnati Bengals might be due for a comedown in the Week 14 NFL picks against the spread. Facing their AFC North rivals the Cleveland Browns, the Bengals are in a five-game losing skid against their cross-state foes.

Under coach Dan Campbell, the Detroit Lions are ATS dynamos. The Lions are 18-9 ATS as underdogs and 9-2 ATS in their last 11 home games. Detroit is a 2.5-point home underdog against the Minnesota Vikings in Week 14.

Should you be going with any of these teams in the NFL odds as Week 14 ATS picks? Let’s take a look at that.

Our top NFL ATS picks this week in the table above will feature plays on the Lions, Browns and Panthers.

NFL ATS Pick 1: Lions On a Roll

The 5-7 Lions are staying on the periphery of the NFC Wild Card playoff picture. Straight up, Detroit is 5-1 in the past six games.

Minnesota is 9-1 SU over the past 10 games and 5-1-1 ATS through the last seven games. However . . .

 

Against the spread, the Lions are 5-0 in the past five games overall and 7-0 in the last seven games facing NFC North opposition.

Pick: Detroit Lions +2.5 (-110), 1 unit

NFL ATS Pick 2: Browns Have Owned Bengals

While Cleveland is 5-0 and 8-1 SU in recent action against Cincinnati, the Browns are just 2-1 ATS over the past three meetings, but 2-0 ATS in the last two as a betting underdog. In Cincinnati, Cleveland is 2-2 ATS over the past four games.

Their Week 13 triumph over the Chiefs improved Cincinnati to an NFL-best 9-1 ATS in the past 10 games. Coming off an emotional win and facing a team that’s given them trouble, logic suggests the Bengals could be in for a letdown.

Pick: Cleveland Browns +4.5 (-110), 1 unit

NFL ATS Pick 3: Panthers Suddenly a Good Bet

Earlier this season, the Carolina Panthers were on an 0-9 ATS skid. Lately, though, the team that just jettisoned season-opening QB1 Baker Mayfield is 5-1 ATS in the past six games.

On the other hand, Seattle is coming down to earth after soaring early in the season. The Seahawks are 1-2 SU and 0-3 ATS in the past three games.

Pick: Carolina Panthers +5.5 (-110), 1 unit

  • ATS season record 24-14-1
