Week 15 NFL Game Picks

237

San Francisco 49ers (-3) at Seattle Seahawks

Will Brock Purdy play? This will make a difference as they travel to Seattle to play a Seattle team fighting to stay in the playoff hunt. Seattle is a tough place to play but San Fran will be up to the challenge led by their star running back and their tight end George Kittle. Without Purdy, I still think the 49ers can win due to their formidable defense. But Seattle has a bitter taste in their mouth from last week.

Seattle 21 49ers 17

Indianapolis Colts at Minnesota Vikings (-4)

One team is fighting to get the #1 seed, and one has been struggling. Minnesota bounces back this week led by Dalvin Cook and Justin Jefferson and wins big.

Minnesota 28 Indianpolis 13

Baltimore Ravens at Cleveland Browns (-3)

Looks like Tyler Huntley will be starting again this week against the Cleveland Browns. He struggled a little last week against a solid Pittsburgh Defense. The story in this game will be how Deshaun plays now in his third game, and how Nick Chubb can navigate the Ravens D. This game comes down to a last minute field goal by Justin Tucker.

Ravens 24 Cleveland 21

Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills (-7.5)

Miami is reeling right now after two straight losses. Have defenses figured out what to do against the high flying Dolphins? Do you put two deep safeties back to defend the big play that Tyreek Hill and Waddle can produce? That all may not matter in this game. The forecast is 30 degrees and snow showers which may hinder their passing game. Tua has only three td and six turnovers, in four games thrown in weather below 40 degrees. Miami is desperate, but not even desperation will help Miami. The Bills are conditioned for the cold weather and gritty games. Buffalo wins a close one.

Buffalo 27 Miami 23

New York Giants at Washington Commanders (-4.5)

Will there be another tie in this one? I sure hope not, as that wouldn’t help either team. The Giants are licking their wounds after a thrashing the Eagles put on them last week. Saquon is not 100% and really the Giants are a one-dimensional team with no passing threat. The Commanders are healthy and coming off a bye, where they’re rested and ready to go. Will Chase Young be back? Having another pass rusher is huge, and I’m very confident the Commanders will win this game covering the spread. Look for them to win by 10.

Washington 24 Giants 14

Philadelphia Eagles (-6) at Chicago Bears

The best team in the league is rolling led by their MVP candidate Jalen Hurts. Justin Fields will play well in this game but Philly is just too much on both sides of the ball.

Philadelphia 31 Chicago 17

Atlanta Falcons at New Orleans Saints (-4)

The big headline this week is Mariota getting benched for Desmond Ridder. Atlanta has been struggling and Ridder won’t be able to turn the tides. The Saints are fighting for a playoff spot led by Andy Dalton. New Orleans is a tough place to play and in this game their defense will lead them to victory.

Saints 27 Atlanta 17

Detroit Lions at New York Jets (EVEN)

The Lions are red hot!!! Jared Goff is playing confidently, they have a potent run attack and their defense is flying around. I think the Jets pull out this one. They’ve struggled the last two games, but they know how important this game is. For Detroit their luck ends this week in a close one.

Jets 24 Lions 21

Pittsburgh Steelers at Carolina Panthers (-2.5)

Carolina, with a new coach, is playing great football right now. They come off a great win in Seattle. Sam Darnold is playing well along with their running backs. Pittsburgh lacks putting up points and in this game, Carolina will put up more then them once again.

Carolina 24 Pittsburgh 17

Dallas Cowboys at Jacksonville Jaguars (-4.5)

This is game is a little tougher to call on the surface. On one hand, Dallas although they won, have to be mad at themselves for letting Houston hang around for most of their game. They are fighting for that #1 seed so should be ready to play. Jacksonville and Trevor Lawrence are playing great ball right now. This game will most likely be close with the Jaguars squeaking by on a last minute field goal

Jaguars 24 Dallas 21

Kansas Chiefs (-14) at Houston Texans

Chiefs, Chiefs Chiefs. Houston, although they played well last week, are fighting for that #1 draft pick.

Chiefs 34 Houston 13

Arizona Cardinals at Denver Broncos (-3)

Arizona took another blow with an already disappointing season losing Kyler Murray to a torn ACL. Denver also lost their QB in Russell Wilson with a concussion. Two disappointing teams playing with Arizona winning.

New England Patriots (-1) at Los Angeles Raiders

The Patriots are hanging on to the last wild card spot in the AFC. The Raiders are losing hope and will have to win out to have any chance. Adding Davante Adams the Raiders thought this could push them over the edge, but it’s been a tough year. Look for them to play really well this game led by Josh Jacobs and Adams. The New England D will have all they can handle this week.

Raiders 27 Patriots 21

Tennessee Titans at LA Chargers (-3)

The Chargers are coming off a great win against the Raiders and may have their mojo back. Between Ekeler and a healthy WR corps, the Chargers are a tough matchup. I like the Chargers at home this week against a Titans team that has trouble scoring at times, even with Derek Henry. Both teams are 7-6 trying to stay in the playoff hunt.

Chargers 27 Titans 20

Cincinnati Bengals (-3.5) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Buccaneers are just bad, there is no sugar coating it. They struggle to score, and their defense is not what it used to be. The Bengals on the other hand are playing great led by Joe Burrow, Jamar Chase and Joe Mixon. This game won’t be close as the Bengals weapons will be too much for the Bucs.

Bengals 28 Bucs 17

Los Angeles Rams at Green Bay Packers (-7)

Baker is back!! Can he continue the good fortune and win again? I don’t think so, as he has to travel to frigid Green Bay on Monday Night football. The Packers have struggled this year, but they win this one.

Packers 24 Rams 20

Week 13 Record 8-6
