NFL Week 14 Odds: Seahawks, Patriots Road Betting Favorites

The home teams are expected to dominate in Week 14 of the NFL season as only two road teams are listed as the favorite on the early odds at top sportsbook 5Dimes.

The two matchups that have the road team listed as the favorite are Seattle at Baltimore and New England at Houston.

The Ravens being listed as a home underdog should surprise no one considering they have more talent on injured reserve than they do on the field right now. The Seahawks are currently a 6-point favorite at 5Dimes. This is the largest underdog Baltimore has been at home since 2007 and they have only been a larger home dog three times since 2000.

In their last five games as the underdog at home the Ravens are 1-4 SU and ATS. In their last 20 they are 7-13 SU and 8-12 ATS. Seattle is a near-perfect 6-1 SU in their last seven games as a road favorite, but they’re only 4-3 ATS.

New England may have lost their last two games and, like Baltimore, are dealing with a ton of injuries, but they’re still a 3.5-point road favorite versus Houston. The Patriots have a solid record SU when they’re favored on the road at 3-1 in their last four and 14-6 in their last 20. They’re horrible ATS though at 1-3 ATS and 7-12-1 ATS.

The biggest favorite on the early odds is San Diego at Kansas City. I think you can guess the favorite. The Chiefs opened as a 7.5-point favorite but money talks and you’ll currently find the Chiefs at -11.5 at 5Dimes. Kansas City has won six in a row both SU and ATS, while San Diego is 1-7 SU and 3-5 ATS in their last eight games.

Also seeing an early line movement was New Orleans at Tampa Bay. The Bucs opened as a 2.5-point favorite, but have since grown to 4-point chalk. This is the first time this season Tampa Bay has been favored by more than 3 points. Still, in their last six games as a home favorite the Bucs are only 2-4 SU and ATS.
