Bengals quarterback Jake Browning was one of the biggest surprises last week. Browning went undrafted and after spending time on the Vikings practice squad, he was signed to the Bengals practice squad in 2021. Many expected the Bengals' postseason aspirations to crumble after Joe Burrow (wrist) was injured against the Ravens in Week 11, but Browning may be changing opinions. The 27-year-old completed 32 of 37 passes (86.5%) for 354 yards and a touchdown in a thrilling 34-31 overtime win over the Jaguars last week on Monday Night Football. Can the Browning and Bengals repeat that success against the Colts and come through for anyone backing them in the latest NFL odds?
The Colts are a 1-point favorite on the road according to the latest Week 14 NFL spreads according to the SportsLine consensus. The Colts (7-5) are also relying on their own backup quarterback to keep their playoff hopes alive, with Gardner Minshew taking over for Anthony Richardson (shoulder). Can you feel confident enough in either of these quarterbacks to include them in Week 14 NFL bets?

Top Week 14 NFL picks
After simulating every game 10,000 times, the model is high on the New Orleans Saints (-5) to cover at home against the Carolina Panthers. The Panthers have failed to reach 20 points in their last six games and enter on a five-game losing streak. The Saints are coming off a 33-28 loss to the Lions, dropping their third straight contest, but all three games came against teams currently in the NFL playoff picture and the Saints averaged 20.7 points per game over those losses.
The Panthers are allowing 22.8 points per game over their last five contests and allowed Tampa Bay to rush for 4.6 yards per carry last week. The Saints rushed for 113 yards and three touchdowns last week as they find more ways to form creativity in their offense. The model projects the Saints to rush for more than 100 yards against the Panthers, a key reason why the Saints cover the spread in almost 60% of simulations.
