Let’s get started.
Here’s a Closer Look At The 2016 NFL Week 15 Expert Picks For Every Game
Thursday, December 15, 2016Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks (-1)
The Los Angeles Rams generally give the Seahawks a tough way to go, but no way does Seattle lose this important Week 15 matchup against their NFC West division rivals.
Saturday December 17, 2016Miami Dolphins at New York Jets (-5)
Miami quarterback Ryan Tannehill is in for a long afternoon against Todd Bowes aggressive defense. The Jets win outright and narrowly cover the spread.
Sunday, December 18, 2016Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears (+5)
The Bears beat the Packers in their final regular season meeting a year ago to snap a four-game skid against their NFC North division rivals and I like them to cover the spread at the very least as a 5point home dog in this Week 15 showdown.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Dallas Cowboys (-6)
The Cowboys are the pick to win this game at home, but I lke Jameis Winston to lad he Bucs to the cover against a Cowboys team that isn’t what you’d call a defensive juggernaut by any stretch of the imagination.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans (-4.5)
The Houston Texans win this Week 15 matchup at home and narrowly cover the spread as they try to lock down another postseason berth.
Cleveland Browns at Buffalo Bills (-9)
The Buffalo Bills are the pick to get the home win, but I like the revamped Browns to get the ATS cover as RG3 shines in Hue Jackson’s offense.
Philadelphia Eagles at Baltimore Ravens (+3)
I like Joe Flacco to lead Baltimore to the win and narrow ATS cover at home against a Philly team that will have a new identity in 2016 under new head coach Doug Pederson.
Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs (-9)
Kansas City is the pick to get the easy SU win and narrow ATS cover at home after going 8-5 ATS as a favorite a year ago.
Detroit Lions at New York Giants (-3)
The Giants have an elite offense but that’s about it these days. I like Matthew Stafford and the Lions to get the ATS cover, by beating the G-Men outright!
Indianapolis Colts at Minnesota Vikings (-4)
I like Minnesota to get the home win in this Week 15 Inter-conference clash, but I’m going with the Colts to narrowly cover the spread after going 6-2 ATS as an underdog a year ago.
New Orleans Saints at Arizona Cardinals (-9)
The Cardinals are the better defensive team for sure, but I think New Orleans has just enough offense to keep the final score within double digits. The Saints cover in a loss.
San Francisco 49ers at Falcons (-5)
The Falcons are the easy pick to get the home win against a rebuilding San Francisco team in this Week 15 NFC clash, but I’m going with what I expect t be a high-scoring Niners team to get the ATS cover by the slimmest of margins.
New England Patriots at Broncos (+1)
I have no idea why the Broncos are favored to beat the Patriots in this Week 15 matchup since they are not the better team in any area in this pairing.
Oakland Raiders at San Diego Chargers (+1)
The Chargers lost both regular season meeting against Oakland in 2015, but that’s one of the reasons I like the Bolts in this huge Week 15 AFC West divisional date. Philip Rivers and the Chargers win a shootout to cover as a surprising 1-point home dog.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Cincinnati Bengals (PK)
These two longtime rivals split their two regular season meetings in 2015 before the Steelers squeaked past the Bengals 18-16 in their playoff controversial wild card playoff matchup. Cincy wins outright to cover the NFL betting line as a pick ‘em.
Monday, December 19, 2016Carolina Panthers at Washington Redskins (+3)
The Panthers may be playing on the road in this contest, but Cam Newton and company are my pick to win and cash in against a Washington team that is inferior in all three phases.
