Pittsburgh Steelers at Minnesota Vikings
The Pittsburgh Steelers (6-5-1 SU, 5-7 ATS) will be looking for their second win in five days when they kick off Week 14 by visiting the Minnesota Vikings (5-7 SU, 6-6 ATS) for “Thursday Night Football.” The Steelers come in riding high off an exhilarating win over the archrival Ravens, as they stymied a two-point conversion in the final seconds to capture a 20-19 victory. The Vikings, on the other hand, were not as fortunate in the final seconds of their last game. They were on the losing end of the Lions’ first victory, giving up a touchdown on the final play to lose 29-27. The Vikings will be without running back Dalvin Cook and wide receiver Adam Thielen, who suffered an ankle injury early in the loss. The Vikings are favored by 4, and the total is 44.5.
Las Vegas Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs
The Las Vegas Raiders (6-6 SU, 5-7 ATS) look to keep their playoff hopes alive as they visit the resurgent Kansas City Chiefs (8-4 SU, 5-7 ATS). The Raiders lost a heartbreaker to Washington and need a strong finish to qualify for their first postseason since 2016. The Chiefs are favored by 10 and have won five in a row after a sluggish 3-4 start. For a team that has been notorious for not covering despite their lofty straight-up record, the Chiefs have gotten their backers to the window in three straight games. These teams met Nov. 14, with the Chiefs winning 41-14 in Las Vegas. The total is 51.5.
New Orleans Saints at New York Jets
The New Orleans Saints (5-7 SU and ATS) were once 5-3 and looking good in their quest to reach their fifth consecutive postseason. But injuries along the offensive line and to star running back Alvin Kamara have decimated the offense. Taysom Hill started at quarterback last week against the Cowboys but is dealing with a hand injury that might force the Saints to revert to Trevor Siemian under center. Meanwhile, the New York Jets (3-9 SU and ATS) might be the right defense against which to get on track, as they are allowing over 6 yards per play, dead last in the NFL. The Jets are 6-point home dogs, and the total is 43.5.
