New England has now failed to cover any of their last five games. In all 10 games they have lost this season, the Patriots have failed to cover the spread. As underdogs, New England is 1-7 ATS, with its only cover coming when it defeated the Bills. The Steelers are 7-5 ATS but have covered in just one of their last three.

The Colts are on a great streak, covering their last four — all as favorites by less than three points. That is currently the case this week as they are favored by around a point against the Bengals for Week 14. Cincinnati covered last week for the first time in five games.

Miami has covered its last two games and three of its last five. It is 2-1 ATS when favored by more than 10 points which will be the case on Monday Night Football this week. In Week 14, the Dolphins face a Titans team that has covered just one of their last five and has not covered any of their last four as underdogs.

The Cowboys failed to cover for the first time in four weeks against the Seahawks last Thursday. That was just their second time not covering the spread in the last seven games. Their opponents this week, the Eagles, also failed to cover after having covered in their previous three games. The game of the week in Week 14 is a tough one to call.

Jacksonville failed to cover in Week 13 for just the second time in the last nine games after being upset on a national stage by the Bengals. The Jaguars’ line this week could fluctuate wildly against the Browns depending on the injury updates for QB Trevor Lawrence. If he plays, you would fancy Jacksonville bouncing back against Cleveland in Week 14.

The Lions ended a two-game streak of failing to cover with a tense win over the Saints last week. They are favored against the Bears in Week 14, who covered their last two games entering the bye, three of their last four, and five of their last eight.

Baltimore will come off their bye week looking to continue the good form that has seen them cover three of their last four and five of their last seven. However, they face a rejuvenated Rams team that has won their last three straight up and covered their last two. However, Los Angeles has not covered as an underdog since Week 2.
