NY Jets +15.0 Point Spread

Under 44.5 Game Totals

Against the Spread Pick

Thursday Night Football here as the New York Jets travel to take on the Baltimore Ravens. Obviously Baltimore is the better team, but I think you have to take the points with the Jets here. The Ravens have been dominating opponents this season by imposing their will with their physicality, and on a short week when guys are still fatigued and banged up I don’t think they will have that same edge here. Even star quarterback Lamar Jackson is hurting, as he appeared on the injury report this week with a thigh issue. The Jets aren’t nearly as bad as people think they are, and they’ve actually won four of their past five games. The Ravens quietly didn’t play very well this past week against the Bills, and each of their past two games have been decided by one possession. If it wasn’t for Josh Allen missing a few throws last week, Baltimore might have lost the Buffalo. Getting more than two touchdowns provides some value here.

Over Under Pick

I also think the under makes some sense here. Jackson had one of his worst games of the season this past week, only throwing for 145 yards and picking up 40 on the ground. Buffalo stymied him for most of the day, and I think Jets defensive coordinator Gregg Williams will be able to take some stuff from that film. Baltimore’s defense has gone a lot better since they traded for cornerback Marcus Peters and fellow corner Jimmy Smith came back healthy, as they’ve given up 17 or fewer points in seven of their last eight games. This is a Jets offense that just a couple of weeks ago only mustered six points against the Bengals, so I don’t think they’re going to light it up here.

Against The Spread Pick

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking to keep their winning streak alive as they head into Detroit to take on the Lions in Week 15. For the Bucs, they are going to be without one of their best players as wide receiver Mike Evans will not dress for the game due to a hamstring injury. It is going to be a huge blow for the Buccaneers as quarterback Jameis Winston had one of the best QB-WR partnerships in the league. Winston comes into this game also with an injury as he met with a hand specialist and discovered there is a hairline fracture in his thumb. Even though there are Injuries all-around this Buccaneers team, it should not be a huge problem for Tampa Bay as the Lions are 30th-ranked pass defense. Winston will continue to throw the ball on every single down and will connect with the likes of Chris Godwin and Breshad Perriman in the game. Last week QB David Blough completed just 24 of 40 passes for 205 yards a touchdown and two interceptions. The difference between Winston and Blough is Jameis has shown he can still overcome his turnovers and win the game. With the Buccaneers coming back from a 14 point deficit against the Colts, I’m riding with the momentum as Detroit is 1-7 ATS in their last 8 games. Give me Tampa Bay here with confidence.

Over Under Pick

One of the hottest trends in betting so far this NFL season is the Buccaneers and the Over. Tampa Bay is strictly an offensive team and will enter each game knowing the only way they walk out as winners is if they score more points in the shootout. Tampa Bay is allowing 29.31 points per game and 278.85 passing yards which is both 31st in the league. Even though Blough has struggled since taking over the QB job, he should be able to drop some easy passes throughout the game. With the Buccaneers blown coverage and Winston throwing for possibly another 400 passing yards, 5 touchdowns, and 4 interceptions, this game has over written all over it. The hot trends of the Buccaneers show that the Over is 7-0 in Buccaneers last 7 games following an ATS loss and 8-0 in Buccaneers last 8 vs. NFC. Keep slamming the Over bet here as it will not go away in Week 15.

Against The Spread Pick

The Kansas City Chiefs are returning home with a smile as their winning streak is now up to three games after taking down the defending Super Bowl Champions, New England Patriots. Some of the storylines from the win was the impressive nature of the Chiefs defense as it continues to improve each week. In the past three games, the Chiefs defense has been one of the best in the league with allowing just 14 points per game. Add that to an MVP level quarterback of Patrick Mahomes, and the Chiefs are once again legit contenders for the Super Bowl. However, Mahomes enters this game with a nagging hand injury. He recently said  “It doesn’t feel great right now but it’s something that you play with,”  in his latest postgame press conference as that should raise some red flags right away. I expect the Chiefs to play it safe here especially with already clinching the AFC West. Quarterback and rookie Drew Lock has looked sensational since taking over the Broncos offense and will test the Chiefs defense without a doubt. I expect a close game here with the Chiefs either having a Mahomes-less offense or a much safer playbook for the MVP. The Broncos are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings in Kansas City and the road team is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings. Give me the free points as Denver makes it a game late.

Over Under Pick

The Chiefs defense has really taken over the league and will showcase to rookie Lock why they can shut down anyone. Even though I do expect some shinning moments from Lock in this game, do not expect much of them. Adding that to the regression of Mahomes play or possibly having backup quarterback Matt More in the game, this game is in for a low scoring ending. In the same three games where the Chiefs are allowing 14 points per game, all of them hit the Under. Kansas City can easily make it four in a row here with the Under as Drew Lock takes a step back into reality. The total has gone UNDER in 14 of Denver’s last 18 games against an opponent in the AFC conference as the Over Under Pick for this Week 15 contest has to be the Under.

Against The Spread Pick

Are the Seattle Seahawks for real? They have been in tight games pretty much the whole season besides the blowout win against the Arizona Cardinals back in the beginning of the season. Now they head onto the road again as they are coming off a blowout loss to the Los Angeles Rams. In the Sunday night showdown, Russell Wilson was tasting the grass majority of the game as he was sacked five times for a loss of 43 yards. Friendly reminder, the Carolina Panthers are second in the league with 47.0 sacks for the season. This is a classic game where Wilson has too much to handle on the road as the Panthers’ defensive line is going to be chasing him from the first play of the game. Without running back Rashaad Penny who is out for the remainder of the season with an ACL injury and is now done for the rest of the season, the Seahawks offense is becoming one dimensional. I love the points here as the Panthers keep it close. The Panthers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games vs. a team with a winning road record as everyone should take the points here.

Over Under Pick

Even though the Seahawks offense might be looked as one dimensional, the Panthers are in the same talks. It is going to be an offensive battle of quarterback Russell Wilson and running back Christian Mccaffrey. Both teams have some offensive stars, as they should both easily put their team in a strong position to score over and over again. I’m looking for a lot of points in this game as the total has gone OVER in 7 of the Panthers’ last 9 games and in 8 of the last 11 games this season. Looking on the defensive side, both teams are allowing near 25 points per game especially the Panthers at home, as I can easily see this game ending in a 27 – 24 win for the Seahawks. Ride with the Over here as it is 5-0 in the last 5 meetings.

MIA Dolphins +3.5 Point Spread

Under 46.5 Game Totals
-110

Against The Spread Pick

At the moment, it is unclear who will be starting for the New York Giants on Sunday as Giants coach Pat Shurmur said on Tuesday the determining factor is Jones’ health, more specifically how well his right high ankle sprain has healed. Even though the leader of the Giant’s offense has yet to be chosen for Week 15’s game against the Dolphins, there will not be a huge difference on who is starting. One of those reasons being that the Giants are 0-3 straight up vs the AFC East this season. This is only the fourth time the Giants have been favored to win as New Yorks lone cover as favorites were back in week four against the Washington Redskins. On the flip side, Quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick and the Dolphins have covered in back to back weeks as they have some small momentum. Expect Fitzpatrick to once again unleash his “Fitz Magic” as the veteran should have no problem scoring on the Giants defense that is allowing 27.8 points per game. Miami is 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games as the play here is Miami to cover.

Over Under Pick

If you are looking to watch some of the best offenses in the NFL, stay far away from this game. Even though the Dolphins made the switch back to Fitzpatrick mid-season, they are still consistently average on offense with dropping 17 points per game which is 30th in the league. On the flip side, the Giants are strangers to the end zone at home as they are only dropping 16.67 points at home per game. Two struggling offenses will only continue to struggle on Sunday as this game screams the Under. The total has gone UNDER in 11 of Miami’s last 13 games against an opponent in the NFC East division as the play here is to roll with the Under.

Against The Spread Pick

The New England Patriots might be on a sinking ship here as they have lost two straight games with the offense being the main concern of their problems. In the past three games, New England has averaged 17 points per game as Quarterback Tom Brady has simply not shown the GOAT performances this season. One of the main reasons for that is the help around him is a bit scarce as the Patriots do not have the firepower to stay or come back in a close game. Now they head onto the road to take on the Cincinnati Bengals who should be an easy opponent, but Cincinnati has been causing problems since Andy Dalton returned to his starting role. The red rifle has thrown for an average of 252.5 yards in the past two games as it has also helped running back Joe Mixon get back into his own groove. Mixon is coming off an impressive 146 rushing yard performance against the Browns as the Bengals will be getting the young star involved quickly in this matchup. New England clearly is missing something on the offensive side and laying double digits to a team that would love to play spoiler is too much to ask here. The Patriots are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a favorite and 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games in December as the Bengals are another great play here. Can Andy Dalton win his third straight cover since coming back? Well, the Home team is 4-0 ATS in their last 4 meetings..

Over Under Pick

The Patriots do not have a running game as that is a huge concern for the Patriots offense. With a struggling Brady and a running game that is lost, New England is going to have problems scoring in this one. Did you know that last week against the Chiefs, Brady finished the day with 20 rushing yards which was only 13 yards away from leading the team in rushing for the game? I’m not confident in the Patriots right now to help this Total hit the Over as the total has gone UNDER in 7 of Cincinnati’s last 10 games against an opponent in the AFC conference. Looking more into Under trends, the total has gone UNDER in 4 of New England’s last 5 games against an opponent in the AFC North division. This is the perfect time to hit the Under as both the Patriots and Bengals play a sloppy game on Sunday.

Against the Spread Pick

Don’t look now but the Chicago Bears have suddenly won three straight games to give their fans some hope again. Can they make it four in a row with a road win over the Green Bay Packers here? I don’t think so. During their winning streak the Bears have beaten the Giants, Lions, and Cowboys, three teams in varying degrees of disarray. Now that they’re facing a more competent opponent, I think they will crumble again. Mitchell Trubisky isn’t back, don’t let yourself be fooled. Some people are hopping off the Packers’ bandwagon because of their close win over the Redskins this past week, but that game wasn’t nearly as tight as the final score indicates. The week before that, Green Bay blew out the Giants on the road. Chicago is dealing with a lot of injuries at the moment, and they just put key linebacker Roquan Smith on injured reserve after their most recent game. That’s a massive loss, and slowing down Aaron Rodgers won’t be nearly as easy without him. Take Green Bay.

Over Under Pick

I also like the under a lot here. When these two teams played each other all the way back in the first game of the season it ended in a 10-3 Packers victory, and I think we could see an equally ugly game here. The Packers have been getting by because of their stout defense, as they’ve given up 16 or fewer points in three of their past four games. The Bears don’t have much of a running game and Trubisky isn’t going to carry them on the road against a divisional opponent, so I don’t see Chicago scoring much at all here. Rodgers quietly hasn’t been that good in recent weeks, and this Green Bay offense is definitely overrated.

Against the Spread Pick

The Philadelphia Eagles will attempt to continue their awkward march toward an NFC East title here as they visit the Washington Redskins. Public perception of the Eagles is at an all-time low right now, and their overtime win over the Giants in their most recent game certainly didn’t help things. That being said, I like the Eagles in this spot and I think the line is a little short. The Redskins played a reasonably close game against Green Bay last Sunday, but I think that had more to do with the Packers being overrated than anything else. This Washington “resurgence” is totally phony, and I think they will get exposed here. Dwayne Haskins simply isn’t ready to be leading an NFL offense, and they just lost promising young running back Derrius Guice, who was starting to show some potential, to injured reserve. The Eagles are neck-and-neck with the Cowboys for the division lead, while Washington doesn’t have anything left to play for. I simply don’t think Washington has enough offense to keep this one close, so I’m laying the points with the road team.

Over Under Pick

The under also makes a lot of sense in this spot. Washington already had virtually no offense, and they just lost one of their few bright spots in Guice. They had a decent showing recently against a lifeless Panthers team, but before that they hadn’t topped 19 points since all the way back on September 15th. Something is wrong with Philadelphia’s offense right now, and they are extremely banged up. They went into last week’s game with only three active receivers, and then Alshon Jeffery went down with an injury that will keep him out of this one. I’m not sure who Carson Wentz is going to be throwing the ball too, and this one should be pretty ugly.

Houston Texans @ Tennessee Titans

Against the Spread Pick

The Houston Texans are coming off one of the most embarrassing losses of the season here as they prepare to take on the Tennessee Titans in a pivotal AFC South battle. This feels like a perfect buy-low and sell-high spot, so I love the Texans. Houston often has letdowns after big performances, so it wasn’t at all surprising to me that they came out flat following their huge victory over the Patriots two weeks ago. Tennessee is riding high with Ryan Tannehill, but I still can’t help but feel like their winning streak is a bit phony. Other than their win over the Chiefs, which only happened because of some missed kicks down the stretch, they’ve mostly been beating up on bad teams. This past week they toppled a Raiders team that has gotten blown out in three straight games. Other than that aforementioned Chiefs game, the Titans haven’t played a likely playoff team since all the way back on October 6th when they lost to the Bills. I think Tennessee is being massively overrated, and Deshaun Watson & Co. should be in for a bounce-back game here.

Over Under Pick

I also think the total is a bit high in this spot. Tannehill has mostly put up his big games against weak defenses, and Houston isn’t as bad on that side of the ball as a lot of people think. This Texans defense just dominated Tom Brady and the Patriots two weeks ago, and the week before that they held the Colts to only 17 points. Just because they had a bad game against Drew Lock and Denver doesn’t mean they won’t be able to turn it around here. This is an absolutely crucial game between two opponents who are very familiar with each other, and I think this could be a defensive struggle.

Against The Spread Pick

It is do-or-die time for the Cleveland Browns as their playoff hopes are slipping away as they head into the desert to take on the Arizona Cardinals. For the Browns, they have been inconsistent this season but should turn it around against a Cardinals team that simply is the worst at home. Arizona has been one of the worse home teams in the past years as they hold a dreadful 2-12-1 straight-up and 6-9 against the spread record since the start of the 2008 season. Cleveland has the talent to easily take down the Cardinals. There is a lot more on the line for the Browns, especially head coach Freddie Kitchens. Cleveland has the option to really open the playbook with their offensive starts as the Cardinals are very limited on who can step up when needed. The smart play is with the Browns here as the Cardinals are 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games played in December. Give me the Browns as they are still in the playoff hunt after Week 15.

Over Under Pick

Most likely one of the highest-scoring games from Week 15 could come from the matchup between the Browns and the Cardinals this Sunday. It is going to be the battle of the last two Heisman Trophy winners and the last two No.1 picks in the NFL draft which should have everything in place for a classic Oklahoma showdown. The Cardinals have been shut down by two of the best defenses in the league in recent weeks (Rams and Steelers) as Murray should be able to finally get the offense moving once again. Before the bump in the road with the Los Angeles and Pittsburgh, Arizona just dropped at least 25 points in three straight games. Expect that same firepower from the Cardinals as Mayfield will go toe to toe with them. I love this play here as the Over is 3-1-1 in the last 5 meetings and 9-4 in Browns last 13 road games vs. a team with a losing home record. Give me the Over as everyone should be putting some money on this great play.

Against The Spread Pick

The Jacksonville Jaguars will be searching for some answers in Week 15 as they look to solve their offensive and defensive issues in Oakland as they take on the Raiders. For Oakland, this game means the world to them. Back on September 9th, the Raiders put on a show for the last Monday Night Football game ever in Coliseum. Now the Raiders will be playing their last home game in Oakland as the team gets ready to move to Las Vegas for the 2020 season. This is the perfect send-off game for the Raiders as they are taking on a Jaguars team that has scored 13.5 points per game in the past four games. Jacksonville has hit rock bottom as Both Nick Foles nor Gardner Minshew has the potential to close out the season strong. In the past five games as underdogs, the Jaguars have been a pure laughing stock as they are 0-5 straight up and against the spread. It will easily be 0-6 in both categories on Sunday as the Raiders have an emotional blowout win for the city of Oakland.

Over Under Pick

The Raiders might get some extra help on Sunday as there is a small chance that star rookie running back Josh Jacobs could get the nod to play. However, even if he does not play, the Raiders offense is still capable of dropping some big points as they dropped over 20 points in their last game with Jacobs and starting right tackle Trent Brown who sat the game with a pectoral injury. This is going to be a one-sided game without a doubt as the Black Hole will be too much for the Jaguars. Jacksonville lone hope would be the running game but the Raiders are allowing just 105.43 rushing yards per game at home which is 9th best in the league. The best pick here has to be the Under as it has hit in 4 of Jacksonville’s last 5 games when playing on the road against Oakland. Give me the Under here.

LA Chargers +2.5 Point Spread

Over 44.5 Game Totals

Against the Spread Pick

The Los Angeles Chargers will host the Minnesota Vikings here. The Chargers are coming off one of their best efforts of the season, as they dominated the Jaguars in Jacksonville by 35 points. For a few reasons, I think they will be able to follow up on that performance with another strong effort here. They may be 5-8, but they are far better than their record indicates. They have a +38 point differential on the year, which shows that they are actually an above-average team. They’ve had some brutal luck this season, and all eight of their losses have been by only one score. The Vikings on the other hand didn’t look very good in their win over the Lions this past week, and they lost to the Seahawks the week before that. In their game before Seattle, it took a miraculous comeback to beat the Broncos at home. I don’t trust Kirk Cousins on the road, and you shouldn’t either. The Chargers always peak around this time of year, and it looks like once again they’re in for a strong December.

Over Under Pick

I also like the over in this spot. Word of Philip Rivers’ demise has been greatly exaggerated, and he showed this past week that he’s still got plenty left in the tank. The Chargers put up a whopping 45 points and with Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, Austin Ekeler, and Melvin Gordon, they have one of the best group of weapons in the entire league. Ekeler became just the third running back in the past 50 years to eclipse 200 total yards on 15 or fewer touches, and I think Los Angeles is going to have some success offensivelu. The Vikings also have plenty of weapons, and it looks like they are going to get star receiver Adam Thielen back for this one. This game has sneaky shootout potential.

Against The Spread Pick

The Atlanta Falcons are looking to play spoiler as they head into San Francisco to take on the 49ers. For the Niners, they proved to the league they still are one of the best and should not be messed with either on the road or at home. Lucky for them, they have a much easier matchup this week compared to the thriller against the Saints last week. One of the reasons why the 49ers have been successful this season is due to them being ranked 2nd with 30.5 points per game on offense, and they’re third defensively with 17.6 PPG allowed. They are good on both sides of the ball while the Falcons have struggled with just scoring 23.1 points per game and allowing a season-high of 26.4 PPG. One of the positives of the Falcons offense has been the passing game where they are ranked third in the NFL with 295.7 passing yards per game but all of that will be tested and more as the Niners are allowing 150.8 passing yards per game. It does not matter what the Falcons come out with on Sunday, the 49ers are the perfect well-rounded team to get the job done on any part of the ball. Give me SF here with confidence as the 49ers are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games in December.

Over Under Pick

The Falcons took a huge hit in their secondary last week in their win against the Panthers as cornerback Desmond Trufant was placed on injured reserve with a broken forearm. On the flip side, cornerback Richard Sherman will also be sidelined for a good chunk of time as he has a strained hamstring. With both top CB’s out for this Sunday contest, I expect a high amount of points being scored here due to those injuries. The Over is 5-2 in 49ers last 7 home games vs. a team with a losing road record and the 49ers currently hold the best home offense in the league with dropping 33.83 points per game. Love the possibility of a high scoring game here as the Falcons can easily help in those back door Over hits. Especially when they have scored on 50% of their fourth-quarter drives since the 2018 season. The Over is a GREAT play here.

Against the Spread Pick

The Dallas Cowboys will host the Los Angeles Rams here in a game that is of massive importance for both sides. After everybody started to count the Rams out they bounced back in a huge way, most recently trouncing the Seahawks on Sunday Night Football. I think the panic was always a bit overboard just because they got blown out by a red-hot Ravens team, and Sean McVay’s squad isn’t going down quietly. Conversely the Cowboys have absolutely folded recently, getting embarrassed by the Bears and Bills in their two most recent games. The Cowboys are still very much alive in the NFC East, but it hasn’t looked like it the last couple of weeks. Nothing is working on either side of the ball for them, and it seems like only a matter of time before Jason Garrett gets fired. Jared Goff seems to have shaken off his slump, and he should have no problem picking apart a defense that just gave up 31 points to the Bears and made Mitchell Trubisky look like an All-Pro. Take the Rams.

Over Under Pick

I like the under even more in this game. Nobody in the national media has been noticing, but the Rams have quietly been playing elite defense recently. They’ve only given up more than 17 points once in their last seven games, and they held opponents to 10 or fewer in four of those. They just completely shut down Russell Wilson and the Seahawks in their most recent contest, and made Wilson have one of his worst games of the season. Their secondary has gotten a lot stronger since they traded for Jalen Ramsey, and their pass-rush led by Aaron Donald is really starting to heat up. Even though Goff had a good game last week I’m still not completely sure that he’s back, so I don’t think the Rams are going to light up the scoreboard either.

Against the Spread Pick

Sunday Night Football here at the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Buffalo Bills. I’ve been a skeptic of this Pittsburgh team but it’s hard to argue with their recent results, and I love them in this spot. The defense has been downright fantastic, and I don’t think Josh Allen is going to have any success for Buffalo here on the road. Buffalo’s defense has also been good but they sometimes struggle to stop the run, which plays right into Pittsburgh’s hand. With Devlin Hodges now at quarterback for the Steelers they’ve gone very run-heavy, and they should be able to have some success on the ground here. Allen t took a big step backward in last week’s loss to the Ravens, and I don’t think he’s ready to go on the road in a primetime game and pull out a win. The Steelers have one of the best home-field advantages in the entire league, and they are 5-1 against the spread in their last six home games.

Over Under Pick

This total is already low, but I still like the under in this spot. This Pittsburgh defense has been extremely stingy, and in six of their last eight games they’ve held opponents to 17 points or fewer. They’ve shut down opponents with way tougher offenses than this Buffalo one, so I don’t think they’ll have too much trouble. The pass-rush led by T.J. Watt has been dynamic, and Allen will be running for his life most of the game. Pittsburgh certainly isn’t explosive offensively at the moment, as the team is being very cautious with Hodges and not letting him do too much. The Steelers haven’t topped 23 points since November 3rd.

Against the Spread Pick

Monday Night Football here as the New Orleans Saints host the Indianapolis Colts. The Colts looked poised to win the AFC South for a little bit but they’ve fallen on hard times recently, losing four of their last five games. While their chances of making the playoffs are now pretty slim, I don’t think we are going to see this team give up. They’re still a first class organization with a top-notch coaching staff, so they’ll be fighting hard. The Saints are coming off a tough loss to the 49ers, in which their defense got exposed. The unit was never as good as people thought it was, and they gave up a whopping 48 points to San Francisco. They showed their secondary is still very vulnerable to a good play-caller, and Frank Reich is nearly as good as Kyle Shanahan with his schemes. The Saints are also pretty banged up on defense right now, as they just placed two of their best defensive linemen in Marcus Davenport and Sheldon Rankins on injured reserve. Indianapolis is going to keep this one close, and it wouldn’t shock me if they won it outright.

Over Under Pick

I think the under also makes a lot of sense in this spot. Indianapolis’ defense has underachieved, but they still have a lot of talent on that side of the ball. Darius Leonard is one of the best linebackers in the game, and I think their front seven will be able to get some pressure here. Meanwhile this Colts offense has looked out of sync recently, and after a hot start Jacoby Brissett hasn’t looked the same. I’m curious if that knee injury he suffered a while back is still bothering him. With T.Y. Hilton not playing they don’t have much talent at receiver, and top tight end Eric Ebron is on injured reserve. This should be a pretty low-scoring game.
