Week 14 is here, and there are plenty of NFL spreads on the board that will tempt bettors. BetMGM has the latest NFL betting lines, with a few that stand out.

What are those lines? Here are some teams that I think you should consider betting on this week.

Falcons (+2.5) at Panthers

I like this situation for the Atlanta Falcons.

This season, Atlanta has been 4-2 ATS on the road. The Falcons seem to play better away from their home stadium, given that they are only 1-5 overall and 0-5 against the spread at home.

As for the Carolina Panthers, they also seem to have problems playing well at home. This season, they are just 2-4 overall and ATS on their home field.

On top of this, they seem to have QB questions, benching Cam Newton in their last game before the bye.

Both teams have problems hanging onto the football, with Carolina having the fifth-most giveaways (20) and the Falcons having the eighth most (19). I can see this game coming down to who turns the ball over less; thus, with a more stable QB situation, I think the Falcons can win that battle.

Packers (-12.5) vs. Bears

The Green Bay Packers have the league’s best ATS record at 10-2 on the season. On top of this, they are 5-0 ATS at home.

I like the Packers to cover here because of the significant difference in turnover margin. Green Bay ranks fourth in the NFL in that category (+9), while the Chicago Bears rank 29th in the NFL (-8).

The Packers’ defense is a terrible matchup for the Bears’ offense. Chicago ranks 30th in points per game (16.8), while Green Bay ranks fifth in points allowed (20.2).

I expect the Packers to win the turnover battle and cover the spread here.

Cardinals (-2.5) vs. Rams

The Arizona Cardinals have been favorites just seven times this season, while the Los Angeles Rams have been favorites in 11 of their 12 games.

These are two talented teams, but I think Arizona is the better one, and they have shown this once already, beating Los Angeles 37-20 on the road back in Week 4.

QB Kyler Murray and WR DeAndre Hopkins returned from their injuries last week for the Cardinals and looked like they did not skip a beat. Murray had two touchdown passes and two touchdown runs, while Hopkins had a touchdown reception.

Arizona also has the second-best record ATS in the NFL at 9-3, while Los Angeles is just 5-7 ATS on the season.

I expect defense to be the difference here. The Cardinals give up the fourth-fewest points in the league per game (18.7) and have the second-best turnover margin (+12). Meanwhile, Matthew Stafford has thrown five interceptions in his past four games.

Arizona averages 28.6 points per game. I believe the Cardinals will capitalize on a turnover or two and win this game.
