NFL Best Bets & Odds: Week 14 Thursday Night Football
The Steelers edged out the Baltimore Ravens last week to get a massive win. However, at 6-5-1, Pittsburgh cannot afford to lose this game. Ben Roethlisberger announced this will be his final season, so it is possible the team will rally around him down the home stretch. In order for Roethlisberger to look competent, he needs protection up front.
For the Vikings, this is another game without Everson Griffen on their defensive front, which has really hurt their pass defense. In fact, Minnesota has allowed 286.3 yards passing on average over the past three weeks, which is second worst in the NFL. On offense the Vikings will be without Adam Thielen, while Dalvin Cook is listed as questionable with his shoulder injury. If he does return, one wonders how many hits he can take from this aggressive Steelers defense.

Steelers vs. Vikings NFL Best Bet
We are using the new Awesemo NFL Betting Model to figure out what the best bet for Thursday Night Football is tonight. According to the model, betting the game total under 44 is the best bet to place, giving it a 57% chance to hit with a 5% ROI. These are two inconsistent teams that could struggle pushing the ball downfield for big chunk plays, so this makes a lot of sense. For Pittsburgh, they simply have not been able to do it all season long. The offensive line is not good enough to give Ben Roethlisberger time, making a bad quarterback look worse. Minnesota will be without Adam Thielen, and the Steelers will bring a ton of pressure against an injured offensive line, forcing prime-time Kirk Cousins into some mistakes.
Best Bet: Game Total UNDER 44
