Colin Cowherd’s Week 14 Blazin’ 5 Picks Were Freezing Cold

Colin Cowherd picks Week 14 Blazin’ 5 ATS from the Fox Bet sports betting app betting odds. He picks Bills, Browns, Giants and 49ers.

Before the start of the 2021 NFL season we listed Colin Cowherd’s predictions.

One of his prognostications got a fair amount of play this week.

Cowherd on Mac Jones before the 2021 NFL Draft:

“Mac Jones…good lord…Mel Kiper’s gotta slow down on this. It’s not gonna work.”

Cowherd on Mac Jones after the New England Patriots (9-4) beat the Bills in Week 13:

“Mac Jones is clearly good enough to win the Super Bowl.”

Cowherd’s Week 14 picks were ice cold. He went 1-4. None of the picks he “loved” –  Giants +9.5 and Buffalo +3 – covered.

Colin Cowherd Blazin’ 5 Week 14 NFL picks

The Herd with Colin Cowherd is a sports talk radio show on Fox Sports Radio and Fox Sports 1. Cowherd’s Blazin’ 5 airs Fridays on The Herd at 1 p.m. EST.

Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns (-3)

Cowherd pick: Browns

Final score prediction: Browns 27, Ravens 23

Cowherd said:

“I got it at 2.5 but I still like Cleveland. They are more desperate, healthier and they are coming off a bye. Lamar Jackson is in a slump. The Ravens, under 20 points in 4 straight games, and they have fallen apart physically. This defense is falling apart and John Harbaugh acknowledged that in the Steelers game. I get a well-coached team that’s healthier and has more rest.”

Final score: Browns 24, Ravens 23

Did Cowherd win? No

New York Giants (+9.5) vs. Los Angeles Chargers

Cowherd pick: Giants

Final score prediction: Chargers 28, Giants 23

Cowherd said:

“Love the Giants. Mike Glennon is going to play. I don’t care if they win or lose. The Giants in their last 6 games are 4-2 ATS because no one thinks they can play. They have held their opponents to 20 or fewer points in five of their last six games. If you look at their defense, they take the ball away. Since Week 7, their D ranks 4th for ppg allowed and yards per-play allowed. The Chargers are dealing with COVID issues. Five of the seven wins by the Chargers are by 6 or fewer. I think the Giants keep it close. I don’t think I lost a Chargers game this year.”

Final score: Chargers 37, Giants 21

Did Cowherd win? No

Sand Francisco 49ers (-2) vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Cowherd pick: 49ers

Final score prediction: 49ers 28, Bengals 23

Cowherd said:

“The 49ers are favored now but I loved them as underdogs. It’s my weakest pick but I like them here. They out-gained their last four opponents. They are starting to get healthy and they are running the football. Their offense is the best Red Zone offense in the league. They’ve scored a TD on 76% of their Red Zone drives. The defense is starting to play well with multiple takeaways in the past month. But here’s the key, the Bengals are getting sloppy. Joe Burrow is hurt, they’ve had multiple games offensively with a turnover or more. Burrow has 14 picks and 16 giveaways…more than anyone in the league. Now he is hurt.”

Final score: 49ers 26, Bengals 23

Did Cowherd win? Yes

Buffalo Bills (+3) vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Cowherd pick: Bills

Final score prediction: Bills 34, Buccaneers 23

Cowherd said:

“I love Buffalo +3. If you wait I think it can go 3.5 or 4. You’re all selling your Bills stock, give it all to me, I’m buying it. I think they go on a heater. They are 4-0 after a loss this year. Their D is still still exceptional. Their D is first in yards per-play allowed, 1st in opp. passer rtg (62.9), 1st in ypg allowed (272.3). Tom Brady, we love him…but 5 straight games one or more turnover. This game, you have a proud good football team that was mocked and ripped by their own media. They are going to play their best game of the year and whack Tommy and the Buccaneers.”

Final score: Buccaneers 33, Bills 27

Did Cowherd win? No

Los Angeles Rams vs. Arizona Cardinals (-2.5)

Cowherd pick: Cardinals

Final score prediction: Cardinals 34, Rams 24

Cowherd said:

“Vegas guys are back-and-forth on this. Kyler Murray has a 73% completion percentage. You can’t stop him off-script. I don’t know what you do to defend him when he’s healthy. The Rams are a little over-inflated in my opinion. Six of their eight wins have come against teams with losing records. They don’t have Robert Woods and they are asking Van Jefferson to be him. I think this line should be bigger. Since Week 7, the Rams are 1-5 ATS.”

Final score: Rams 30, Cardinals 23

Did Cowherd win? No

Did Colin Cowherd Win? The Possibly Vegas-/Barstool-Bound ‘Herd’ Host Had a Solid Week

In NFL Week 14, Colin Cowherd is teasing some big news, predicting Giants and Browns upsets and the Bills over the Steelers in his Blazin’ 5 Fox Bet picks.

The possibly-Vegas bound Colin Cowherd had a 3-2 Week 14 and correctly called for a Titans blowout. He was also all-in on the Buffalo Bills and Josh Allen, which meant Fox Bet users could have tripled their money.

Cowherd is inching closer to a .500 record (33-34-2) and getting more explicit with the hints about what he has planned.

Cowherd’s next move

We all know at least one person who posts vague statuses on social media. Colin Cowherd has made a number of teasing tweets with little context.

  • “My life bout to get more interesting.”
  • “Feelin spicy tonight.”
  • “Lots of rumors about me today on the Internet. I will simply say this — I will have a major announcement very early next week. Thanks for all your support.”

Even Liv Cowherd chimed in:

What could Colin Cowherd be hinting at?

It’s a bit different when one of your Facebook friends posts about “big news coming soon,” because 99.9% of the time, it means a baby is on the way. Is Liv Cowherd getting a sibling? Doubtful. But like your FB friend who is going to post their “look what we did in quarantine” birth announcement, the answers might be in the timeline.

Colin to Barstool?

On Dec. 9, he tweeted congratulations to Erika Nardini, the CEO of Barstool.

Cowherd signed a four-year contract with Fox Sports and iHeart Radio in 2018. Without knowing the fine print of the contract, it’s hard to say what Cowherd can and can’t pursue in terms of other opportunities.

Moving to Las Vegas?

Various replies to Cowherd’s “My life bout to get more interesting” tweet speculated he is moving to Las Vegas.

The hint is on the timeline …

Then, on Dec. 11, he tweeted this, which seems to be quite an obvious sign:

Long shot guess — Liv Cowherd cohost?

Liv Cowherd rarely replies to her father’s online antics, so it was surprising to see her retweet. She has a legion of fans who are not afraid to shoot their shot in the comments. Colin and Liv Cowherd would be a much more interesting pairing than Cris Collinsworth and his son, Jac.

Tennessee Titans (-7.5) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

Colin’s pick: Titans

Colin’s final score: Titans 36, Jaguars 23

Cowherd said:

“I know there is a hook, and bettors tend to not like the hook, but I’m going to swallow it. We have a rout on our hands. Tennessee is a very good team that was humiliated at home last week. You know my rule, bet on the following week. Their offense, though lacking what appears to be firepower, is fifth in yards per play. That’s a huge Vegas stat. The Jags D is awful. They have not held an opponent under 24 points since Week One. Huge coaching advantage. I like this as my rout of the weekend.”

Actual final score: Titans 31, Jags 10

Did Colin win? Yes

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Miami Dolphins (+7)

Colin’s pick: Dolphins

Colin’s final score: Kansas City 28, Dolphins 23

Cowherd said:

“This game feels like all Miami games — close and ugly. We talk a lot about offense, but Kansas City’s defense is clearly the second-best defense in this game. The data tells you it is slipping. The Dolphins D is first in the league in third down defense. Translation — they’ll get Patrick Mahomes off the field. Kansas City’s defense is the sixth-worst rushing defense, and in the last month it has gotten worse. The Chiefs have not won by more than 6 points in any of their last four games. You have a Miami offense that can run it, doesn’t turn it over, and an excellent defense at home. You have a Kansas City offense that sort of lacks a certain urgency. Miami is the best bet in the NFL this year (9-3 ATS).”

Actual final score: Chiefs 33, Dolphins 27

Did Colin win? Yes

Arizona Cardinals vs. New York Giants (+2.5)

Colin’s pick: Giants 

Colin’s final score: Giants 27, Cardinals 24

Cowherd said:

“This is the game you should bet the least on. The reason I’m worried is everybody likes the Giants this week. I think they have a coaching edge, are at home, are better than their record and I like their defensive line/offensive line matchup here. But I am concerned that they just came off their biggest win in several years, and the world now loves the Giants. What concerns me more for Arizona, Kyler Murray in the last three games is 0-3 with zero rush touchdowns and 4.1 rush yards per carry. He is struggling. Their defense has allowed over 30 in three of the last four games. In September and October, we all kind of fell in love with Arizona; they have not shown a second gear. The Giants are just getting better every week.”

Actual final score: Cardinals 26, Giants 7

Did Colin win? No

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Buffalo Bills (-2)

Boom Bet: Triple your money if Josh Allen throws two+ TDs and the Bills win.

Cowherd’s pick: Bills

Colin’s final score: Bills 28, Steelers 21

Colin Cowherd said:

“I’ve been saying it all week: I’ll take Buffalo. They are a Hail Mary away from being 6-0 in their last six, and they outplayed Arizona. The Steelers are becoming so Ben-reliant it’s comical. They don’t even attempt to run the football. Josh Allen, outside of Mahomes, may be the second-best young QB in this league, and he is just getting better. The Steelers as an offense is getting worse. Buffalo, at home, has the most fourth-quarter takeaways. Their defense is situationally fantastic. This staff is unbelievable.”

Actual final score: Bills 26, Steelers 15

Did Colin win? Yes

Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns (+2.5)

Colin’s pick: Browns

Colin’s final score: Browns 28, Ravens 26

Cowherd said:

“Like it, I love it. Teams are different. Some get hurt, some get healthy, some don’t have an identity. Cleveland has found their identity. This is the two best running offenses in the NFL. The Browns have only allowed six sacks since Week Seven. This is the best offensive line. If you go to Week Seven, the Ravens have a minus-6 sack differential, Browns +10. The Ravens have lost four of six and struggle with their offensive identity. Do they want Lamar to run? Cleveland is the better football team and are getting points. I do worry a little about their maturity, winning back-to-back games, Monday Night Football, Baker spotlight. I’m going to take Cleveland. I bet some money on it.”

Actual final score: Ravens 47, Browns 42

Did Colin win? No

Blazin’ 5 Week 14 record: 3-2
