NFL Week 14 best bets: One wager to make for every team

Rams: Matthew Stafford OVER 31.5 pass attempts (-125)

The one concern with this bet is the weather. The forecast shows rain in Baltimore on Sunday, but that may not limit the number of times Stafford throws the ball. Instead, it could lead to more short, quick passes to get easier completions. That’s something the Rams have been doing in recent weeks regardless, getting the ball out of his hand quickly to neutralize the opposing pass rush. It’s surprising to see this number set so low because Stafford has had at least 33 attempts in seven of the 10 complete games he’s played this season, with one other game where he had 31 attempts. He may only be completing 60.7% of his passes, but he’s still throwing the ball a ton and should continue to do so on Sunday if the Rams fall behind.

Ravens: Lamar Jackson OVER 47.5 yards rushing (-115)

The Rams have a middle-of-the-pack defense, and with Baltimore using a running back-by-committee approach, Lamar Jackson is the safest pick for rushing yards by a Raven, and we believe he’s the safest bet to log 47.5+ yards against a Rams defensive front that will apply pressure up the middle and off the edge. Jackson has 575 rushing yards on the season, he’s just 15 shy of overtaking Gus Edwards (590) for the team lead. Glenn Erby, Ravens Wire
