Blazing Five: Colin Cowherd Gives His 5 Best NFL Bets For Week 14 (Dec. 11)

Blazin' 5: Colin Cowherd Gives His Five Best NFL Bets For Week 14


Week 13 Blazin' 5 record: 3-2

Blazin' 5 season record: 32-26-2

Vikings at Lions (SPREAD: DET -2)

“I’m going to start with a favorite, I’m going to take Detroit at home, -2. They have won four of their last five games, Jared Goff is on the longest streak of his career without an interception— four games, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Jamaal Williams, they are playing well and the Lions are very good at home. The Vikings, meanwhile, the defense since Week 10 has gone into the tank. It’s AWFUL everywhere, and Kirk Cousins on the road this year is not the same guy. Seven TDs and seven picks, that’s it. Lions win, Lions cover, 28-24 Detroit.”

Colin's prediction: Lions 28, Vikings 24.

Colin's pick: Detroit -2

Ravens at Steelers (SPREAD: PIT -2)

 “I’ll take another small favorite, Pittsburgh -2 is the side coming off back-to-back wins for the first time this season. They’re 4-1 when TJ Watt plays, and they have not had a giveaway in a month, four games, that’s big for Kenny Pickett. The Ravens, meanwhile, are broken offensively. Since 2020 when Lamar doesn’t play, they’re 1-5; he is the edge they need. They Ravens have also become very turnover-prone, five giveaways in the last three games. I’m going to take the Steelers and Kenny Pickett to not throw a pick-it and win 24-20.”

Colin's prediction: Steelers 24, Ravens 20.

Colin's pick: Pittsburgh -2

Browns at Bengals (SPREAD: CIN -5.5)

“Now dogs, I like Cleveland +5.5. Kevin Stefanski is 5-0 against Cincinnati, and this team is running the football. Back-to-back games with 170+ rushing yards. They have eight games with 170+ rushing yards, most in the NFL. Their offense this season when it comes to big rushing plays, they’re surprisingly good. Joe Burrow is 0-4 against the Browns, and it’s a divisional game, Tee Higgins is hurt, these divisional games always feel closer, I think Cincinnati wins 28-27. I’m going to take the points in a divisional game with Cleveland.”

Colin's prediction: Bengals 28, Browns 27.

Colin's pick: Cleveland +5.5

Panthers at Seahawks (SPREAD: SEA -4.5)

“I’m going to take the upset, baby, Panthers +4.5! Like it? I LOVE IT. The Panthers are coming off a bye and their defense is healthy and playing well. They’ve held opponents under 15 points or fewer in three straight games. If you go since Week 10 and look at the Seahawks defense it’s bad and getting worse, while Carolina’s is good and getting better. The Seahawks have lost two of three and were lucky to beat the Rams. Kenneth Walker is out, DeeJay Dallas his backup is hurt. They will not be able to control the line of scrimmage, they’ll need Geno to throw without a run game, Panthers upset the Seahawks 24-23.”

Colin's prediction: Panthers 24, Seahawks 23.

Colin's pick: Carolina +4.5

Patriots at Cardinals (SPREAD: NE -2)

 “I’ll take Arizona at home on Monday Night Football, +2. Arizona is coming off a bye and Kyler Murray is getting healthy. DeAndre Hopkins and Hollywood Brown will play in just their second game together. The Patriots offense is limited and has been a BB gun since Week 7. They’re 0-6 this year when scoring 20+ points. The Patriots offense since Week 7 is averaging only 4.9 yards per play. Since Week 7 they have seven touchdowns, that’s it. Mac Jones in the last five games has been sacked 20 times. They don’t have weapons on the outside, the offensive line has regressed, Mac Jones has lost confidence, I’m gonna take Arizona at home. I think the Cardinals are going to beat the Patriots, 27-20. This New England team is not good. Maybe they need Baker Mayfield!”

Colin's prediction: Cardinals 27, Patriots 20.

Colin's pick: Arizona +2
