Welcome back to our Five Favorite Bets For Week 15! We had some heartbreaking bad beats with the Packers letting the Lions do a backdoor cover and the Browns losing a close one to the Ravens. Our season total is now 38 wins, 34 losses, and 2 pushes. A bad week just means we have to shoot for the 5-0 sweep again this week with our Five Favorite Bets For Week 15.
Detroit Lions at Tennessee Titans
Matthew Stafford’s status is up in the air for this game. Even if he somehow plays he will not be close to 100% and the alternative is Chase Daniel starting. Kenny Golladay is still injured so this will hamstring Lions’ offense even more. I think Tennesee will win this game big and cover the spread.
Pick: Titans -8.5
Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts
Rookie Jonathan Taylor is finally showing the production everyone had waited for all year long in recent weeks. The Texans were throttled by the Bears last week and this week travel into Indianapolis to take on a better Colts team. The Colts will dish out another blow out to the Texans. You have to feel bad for Deshaun Watson who is playing his ass off and has no help around him.
Pick: Colts -7
Philadelphia Eagles at Arizona Cardinals
Jalen Hurts gave life to the Eagles season last week in their huge upset against the Saints. Hurts ran for over 100 yards in that game. I think the Eagles will keep that momentum rolling against the Cardinals. The Cardinals have been so inconsistent all year it’s hard to know what to expect from them. The Eagles will keep this close and may even steal the game.
Pick: Eagles +6 ( Eagles ML if you are feeling lucky)
New York Jets at Los Angeles Rams
The Rams are going to destroy the Jets. Normally I am scared to bite on a double-digit spread because the back door cover is always lingering. However, The New York Jets are 1-4 against the spread as a double-digit underdog. The Rams are at home and will pour it on in this game.
Pick: Rams -17
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals
Here I go going back to back against double-digit underdogs! The Bengals have been a trainwreck since losing Joe Burrow. Their turnover differential the last 3 weeks without Burrow is -6. They are playing a pissed off Steelers team who has lost 2 in a row. The Steelers win in blowout fashion to close out week 15.
Pick: Steelers -12
Best of luck to everyone this week and thank you for reading our Five Favorite Bets For Week 15!
