Several teams play virtual must-win games in Week 14 of the 2019 NFL season. With the playoffs only a month away, half the league is either in the playoff picture or no more than a game out of the postseason.

Below are picks against the spread for every game in Week 14, as well as updated betting odds at Las Vegas and online sportsbooks. Betting lines and trends are courtesy of OddsShark.

Dallas Cowboys (-3) vs. Chicago Bears

The Cowboys don’t simply struggle against winning teams. Dallas has trouble beating good defenses, going 0-6 in games with teams that surrender fewer than 23 points per game. Chicago hasn’t given up more than 20 points in over a month.

Prediction ATS: Chicago

Washington Redskins (+13) at Green Bay Packers

Maybe Washington’s rushing attack will make this a competitive game. The Redskins had 248 yards on the ground with 8.3 yards per attempt in last week’s victory. Only four teams are allowing more yards per rush than Green Bay. Washington is 4-2 against the spread in its last six games.

Prediction ATS: Washington

Denver Broncos (+9.5) at Houston Texans

With the exception of an early-season loss to the Panthers, the Texans have taken care of teams they’re supposed to beat. As impressive as he was at times in his debut, Drew Lock still only threw for 134 yards with a meager 4.8 yards per attempt. Denver is 1-7 in its last eight road games and Houston is 5-1 in its last six home games. Deshaun Watson and the Texans should beat the Broncos by double digits.

Prediction ATS: Houston

Detroit Lions (+13) at Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota has played a bunch of close games of late, last winning by two touchdowns in Week 6. That recent stretch of games has included home victories over the Redskins and Broncos in which the Vikings didn’t cover the spread. Minnesota is 1-4 against the spread in the last five games.

Prediction ATS: Detroit

San Francisco 49ers (+2.5) at New Orleans Saints

The 49ers just lost by a field goal on the road against the best team in the AFC. San Francisco could suffer a similar fate against the NFC’s No.1 seed in another close, low-scoring game. The 49ers thrive on takeaways and sacks. The Saints have the NFL’s fewest turnovers and allow just 1.8 sacks per game.

Prediction ATS: New Orleans

Carolina Panthers (+3) at Atlanta Falcons

The Falcons blew out the Panthers a few weeks ago in what was a must-win game for Carolina. The Panthers have lost five of their last six games. Kyle Allen has averaged a 73.2 passer rating and taken 29 sacks during that span.

Prediction ATS: Atlanta

Baltimore Ravens (-5.5) at Buffalo Bills

This a chance for the Bills to prove that they are an actual contender in the AFC, but Buffalo is not on the same level as Baltimore. Lamar Jackson will have another terrific game on the ground against a defense that’s had some bad performances against the run.

Prediction ATS: Baltimore

Cincinnati Bengals (+8.5) at Cleveland Browns

After a loss to the Steelers that ended their playoff chances, the Browns will return to playing well against one of the league’s worst teams. Baker Mayfield shredded Cincinnati with seven touchdown passes, no interceptions and a 73.0% completion rate last year.

Prediction ATS: Cleveland

Miami Dolphins (+5.5) at New York Jets

The Dolphins already beat the Jets earlier this season. New York has failed anytime they’ve been expected to win, going 0-3 straight up and against the spread as a favorite. Miami is 3-2 against the spread on the road.

Prediction ATS: Miami

Indianapolis Colts (+3) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Tampa Bay’s offense is rolling with Jameis Winston on pace to throw for nearly 4,900 yards. The Buccaneers are averaging 30.3 points over their last 10 games. The Colts’ offense has floundered in recent weeks with T.Y. Hilton and Marlon Mack hurt. Sunday’s game could end Indianapolis’ playoff hopes.

Prediction ATS: Tampa Bay

Los Angeles Chargers (-3) at Jacksonville Jaguars

It was only a few days ago that the Chargers lost as three-point road favorites against a bad team. Los Angeles has been favored eight times in 2019, only covering the spread in Miami. Gardner Minshew could provide the Jaguars with the spark they desperately need.

Prediction ATS: Jacksonville

Tennessee Titans (-3) at Oakland Raiders

The Raiders are the AFC’s version of the Cowboys. Oakland sits at .500 because they can’t beat teams with winning records. Not only is Tennessee 7-5, but they’ve won five of their last six games. The way Ryan Tannehill and Derrick Henry are playing, the Titans’ offense should thrive against a poor Raiders’ defense.

Prediction ATS: Tennessee

Pittsburgh Steelers (-2.5) at Arizona Cardinals

Arizona’s season is over. Pittsburgh is fighting for the final wild-card spot in the AFC. Kyler Murray will struggle against one of the NFL’s best defenses after throwing for just 313 total yards in his last two games. The Steelers should beat the Cardinals by at least a field goal.

Prediction ATS: Pittsburgh

Kansas City Chiefs (+3) at New England Patriots

New England’s inability to score finally caught up to them against Houston in Week 13. The Chiefs don’t have a bad pass defense, and Tom Brady is getting very little help from his receiving corps. Even New England’s top-scoring defense won’t be able to stop Kansas City, who has scored at least 24 points in all but one of Patrick Mahomes’ career starts.

Prediction ATS: Kansas City

Seattle Seahawks (-1) at Los Angeles Rams

Don’t bet against Russell Wilson and the Seahawks in primetime. After beating the Vikings on “Monday Night Football,” Seattle is 26-7-3 against the spread in primetime since 2007. Wilson could torch the Rams Sunday night the way he did when the NFC West rivals met on “Thursday Night Football” two months ago.

Prediction ATS: Seattle

New York Giants (+9.5) at Philadelphia Eagles

Who knows what to expect from either of these teams? Eli Manning is likely to start in place of an injured Daniel Jones with the Giants on an eight-game losing streak. Philadelphia might be the NFL’s most disappointing team with a 5-7 record.

Prediction ATS: New York

Season Record: 93-97-2
