This gives more things to test:
(I would also change the error_log level to notice and see if there is anything logged)

1. Can you test from any client in the lan (192.x.x.x) that you are able to connect to the nginx udp port Iand send some message /csee if it lands in the backends), for example with netcat: nc -u your.centos.ip 1514

2. See if you are able to actually connect from the centos box to the backends: nc -u 1514

With two network interfaces there might be also routing issues and depending on the configuration you could need to specify the outgoing 10.x interface with proxy_bind ( 

Something like:

    server {
        listen 1514 udp;
        proxy_pass mycluster;
        proxy_bind 10.x.x.x; // the ip of the centos machine
