NFL odds: Week 14 opening lines: Texans are underdogs against Patriots

Rick Stewart

Denver is the only double-digit road favorite, but the 49ers and Seahawks also face big point spreads as oddsmakers posted their Week 14 opening lines. The Pittsburgh-San Diego game remained off the board pending Big Ben's status.

The Broncos clinched the AFC West and were rewarded with a road game in the division for Week 14.

Oh and, did we mention, they opened as 11.5-point favorites on the road, putting them in a situation where they have failed to cover the spread 11 straight times.

Yes, Denver has won eight in a row SU as a favorite, but as a favorite of 8+ points, they are on an 0-11 ATS streak. Ugh.

San Francisco opened as double-digit home chalk against Miami as they aim to rebound from a loss to the Rams. And the Seahawks are big home favorites over the struggling Cardinals, who looked terrible in losing to a terrible Jets team last weekend.

There are some uncommon situations on the Week 14 odds menu. The Browns are favored, a rarity for the franchise, as they host the emotionally-wrought Kansas City Chiefs.

The Redskins are razor-thin home chalk against Baltimore as oddsmakers continue to give Washington lots of respect on the heels of their win over the Giants.

And the powerful Texans are rare underdogs, but that's mainly because they face the Patriots on the road in the Monday Nighter. Check out all the opening lines and get updates here at SB Nation.
