A Closer Look At The Analysis Highlights And Betting Advice On Every Week 15 NFL Game
San Francisco at Atlanta
Sunday, December 18 at 4:05 PM ET
Odds: Atlanta -14
Analysis: The Atlanta Falcons (8-5 SU, 8-5 ATS) have alternated SU wins and losses over their last five games but routed the lowly Los Angeles Rams last weekend and I expect them to do the same to the equally abysmal San Francisco 49ers (1-12 SU, 2-10-1 ATS) in their Week 15 matchup. The 14-point spread may look a bit high, but the Falcons can score the ball like nobody’s business and will cover with a bit of room to spare!
Pick: Atlanta -14 Points
Oakland at San Diego
Sunday, December 18 at 4:25 PM ET
Odds: Oakland -3 / Total: 49.5
Analysis: Oakland (10-3 SU, 8-5 ATS) got completely humbled in their Week 14 loss to Kansas City last weekend and while most football fans expect the Raiders to bounce back nicely against San Diego (5-8 SU, 7-6 ATS) this weekend, I smell another upset brewing. The Black and Silver recorded a narrow 34-31 win over the Bolts in October, but all that tells me is that this AFC West divisional matchup is going to be another thriller. These two longtime rivals combine to average over 54 points per game offensively while also combining to give up over 51 points per contest defensively. The Over is 4-2 in Oakland’s last six road games and an identical 4-2 in San Diego’s last six home dates. Keep it simple and play the Over!
Pick: Over 49.5 Total Points
New England at Denver
Sunday, December 18 at 4:25 PM ET
Odds: New England -3
Analysis: The Patriots (11-2 SU, 10-3 ATS) might have the better record, but I’m still a bit surprised they’re favored to beat the Broncos (8-5 SU, 8-5 ATS) in Denver, seeing as how the defending Super Bowl champs are completely desperate and have a lockdown defense that knows how to harass Tom Brady. I like the Broncos to cover the spread – by winning outright!
Pick: Denver +3 Points
Tampa Bay at Dallas
Sunday, December 18 at 8:30 PM ET
Odds: Dallas -7
Analysis: The Dallas Cowboys (11-2 SU, 9-3-1 ATS) may have the better record, not to mention, they’re playing at home, but for me, I like Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-5 SU, 8-5 ATS) to cover the spread at the very least – if not win outright. The Bucs have looked phenomenal in beating Kansas City, Seattle, San Diego and new Orleans the last four weeks while the Cowboys have struggled in getting held to just 24 combined points over their last two games. There’s no way the spread for this matchup should be so high. Tampa Bay covers with room to spare!
Pick: Tampa Bay +7 Points
Carolina at Washington
Monday, December 19 at 8:30 PM ET
Odds: Washington -6.5
Analysis: Carolina (5-8 SU, 4-7-2 ATS) has looked nothing like a Super Bowl runner-up this season and Washington (7-5-1 SU, 9-4 ATS) can score the ball with the best teams in the league. Still, I have a funny feeling the Panthers are going to win outright. Back Cam Newton and the Panthers to cover the NFL betting line!
Pick: Carolina +6.5 Points
