The race to the playoffs continue, as we pick out two selections with big prices ahead of this weekend’s games
The NFL postseason race is hotting up, with only five weeks of the regular season remaining in 2023.
With plenty of action to look forward to, our in-house tipster has scoured through the markets – picking out two selections that hold some value.
This week’s picks feature players from the Los Angeles Rams and the Buffalo Bills.
Here are the Best Longshot Bets for Week 14.
RETURN OF THE COOP
It’s no secret that Cooper Kupp has fallen behind Puka Nacua as the main man in the receiving unit – but he could have a big outing for the Rams this week.
Nacua is carrying a shoulder injury and has been limited in practice. While that is not a definite to rule him out this weekend, he does have a chance of missing time.
If that is the case, then Kupp will see an upsurge in targets come his way. While the Ravens have allowed the sixth-least receiving yards to wideouts this season, they have given up a 100+ yard games to Keenan Allen as well as 98- and 95-yard performances to Amari Cooper and Trey McBride.
Kupp has demonstrated his ability on plenty of occasions, and while he is not producing the same level of output as recent seasons, he could be a forgotten threat in this contest.
Kupp to break 100+ receiving yards in this matchup looks good value – especially if Nacua misses out.
TIP: Cooper Kupp 100+ Receiving Yards (+630, FanDuel)
Following their bye week, the Bills will be raring to go in a huge clash with the Chiefs this week.
Star QB Josh Allen will be rested and ready to go, and it would not be a surprise to see him put the team on his back and carry them to victory.
The sixth-year pro loves to use his legs against KC – as he has surpassed 50+ rushing yards in three of his last four meetings with the AFC West side.
Allen seems to do this in big games – as he chalked up 83 rushing yards against the Eagles in their overtime loss last time out.
The Bills quarterback already has nine rushing touchdowns this season as well – which makes him a goal-line threat if the offense gets close.
Take Allen to blitz 50+ rushing yards once again as well as finding the endzone here.
