NFL Best Bets Week 15
We went 4-2 last week and even won our best bet of the Bills covering against the Steelers on Sunday night. I feel even more confident with this weeks slate of games.
The Bills and Broncos both come into this week with the quarterbacks on fire. Drew Lock had a career day in Carolina last week, throwing for 4 touchdowns and no turnovers. On the other side, Josh Allen has continued his MVP form and now has 35 total touchdowns on the season. To me, this game is a classic back door cover for the Broncos. Look for the Bills to go up big early, start to rest, and have Drew Lock lead his team back at the end of the game. I'm staying away from the point spread here and talking the over. Over 49.5.
I said this last week and ill say it again. The Bears STINK! Trubisky had a good game last week, there is 0% chance he plays good again. Vikings -3.
The game of the week in week 15 is the Kansas City Chiefs against the New Orleans Saints. Drew Brees will be coming back for the Saints this week and I don't understand why. The 41 year old Brees broke a bunch of ribs and punctured a lung just 4 weeks ago. Why risk it? The Saints defense has also been torched in recent week, last week they let the Jalen Hurts led Eagles run for over 250 yards with some questionable coaching decisions. Travis Kelce is going to have a big day and the Saints pull Brees early. Chiefs win big. Chiefs -2.5.
Im giving the Texans one last chance this year. Last week they burned me, but 5 of the last 6 matchups between the Colts and Texans have been decided by less than 7 points. I think Deshaun Watson and the Texans realize they can play spoiler on the Colts playoff hopes and come out with something to play for. Watch for Watson to have a big day. Texans +7.5.
The Browns come into East Rutherford on Sunday after the best game of the year last Monday night. Baker Mayfield now has 13 touchdowns and just 2 interceptions in the last 7 games. I expect the Browns to put up a ton of points and not stop against a Giants team that will most likely be without QB Daniel Jones. The weather in New Jersey is perfect for the over, 40 and sunny. Over 44.
Lock of the Week
I love this game. I love it so much it almost makes me want to fade my own pick. The Seahawks have shown that when they play a team with a great defense they struggle. The Washington Football Team’s defense is the real deal. The front 7 is the best in football and should be able to force Russel Wilson into a few mistakes. I know QB Alex Smith doesn’t look like he will be able to go Sunday, but I think Dwayne Haskins could find enough success against a terrible Seattle defense to keep this game close. I’m sticking with my gut. Washington +6.5.
