We have expert betting tips for every game on the NFL Round 15 schedule.
NFL Week 15 Preview
12:20pm New York Jets vs. Baltimore Ravens @ M&T Bank Stadium
The Baltimore Ravens are one of the best teams in the NFL and the Jets shouldn’t pose much of a threat.
New York has been in better form of late but the Ravens are the –16-point favourites and should win with ease.
Lamar Jackson is playing too well for this Jets defense to hold up on Friday.
Betting tip: Ravens –16 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Ravens by 21
5:00am New England Patriots vs. Cincinnati Bengals @ Paul Brown Stadium
The New England Patriots have suffered a few setbacks in recent weeks, but the Bengals are a big step back in quality.
Cincinnati has won only one of their 13 games and the Patriots have a much better record of 10-3.
We’re expecting the Pats to be far too good for the Bengals and to cover the generous 9.5-point line.
Betting tip: Patriots –9.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Patriots by 14
5:00am Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Detroit Lions @ Ford Field
Tampa Bay has been playing much better football of late and they’re a sneaky chance at making a push for the playoffs.
They are currently at 6-7 but with a little more consistency from quarterback Jameis Winston, they could have been much better than that.
Detroit has had their chances to win this season but it’s another losing season for this struggling franchise.
Betting tip: Buccaneers –3.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Buccaneers by 7
5:00am Chicago Bears vs. Green Bay Packers @ Lambeau Field
This is always a great rivalry and we’re firmly in the camp of the Green Bay Packers.
They are currently 10-3 on the season and Aaron Rodgers is playing as well as ever. He has 23 touchdowns on the year and he has limited his turnovers.
Chicago has been disappointing this season but has somehow managed to get to 7-6. They should struggle against a much better outfit here.
Betting tip: Packers –4.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Packers by 10
5:00am Houston Texans vs. Tennessee Titans @ Nissan Stadium
The Titans are rolling at the moment and not many punters would have put them in this position a few weeks back.
With an 8-5 record, the Titans host the 8-5 Texans, which are looking to bounce back after a dreadful defeat to the Denver Broncos last week.
Houston was tipped as a top playoff team but they won’t go very far producing shocking efforts like that.
Keep the roll going with Tennessee here.
Betting tip: Titans -3 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Titans by 7
5:00am Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs @ Arrowhead Stadium
Denver produced a huge upset win over the Texans last week, but life is about to get even harder.
They face the 9-4 Chiefs which will be looking to hit top form just as the playoffs are approaching.
They would be disappointed with their home record of 3-3 but they are building at the right time and having Patrick Mahomes is a big plus.
It’s hard to know what this Broncos team will deliver, but they could cover the spread.
Betting tip: Broncos +9.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Chiefs by 8
5:00am Miami Dolphins vs. New York Giants @ MetLife Stadium
The Giants almost scored an upset win over the Eagles on Tuesday, but a rubbish second half put pay to that.
Eli Manning looked stunning in the first half but after scoring 17 points in the half, they failed to score anything in the second half. In fact, we can’t remember if they even passed the halfway mark.
Miami was a narrow loser last week but they look much better now than they did to start the season.
An upset looms here.
Betting tip: Dolphins +3.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Dolphins by 10
5:00am Philadelphia Eagles vs. Washington Redskins @ FedEx Field
There’s not much to say about either team this season. The Eagles were very average when beating the Giants on Tuesday, but they did come back to win.
Washington is awful with a 3-10 record and they have a home record of only 1-5.
Punters will find it tough to back either team with confidence but at least the Eagles are in a good chance of making the playoffs.
Betting tip: Eagles –4.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Eagles by 7
5:00am Seattle Seahawks vs. Carolina Panthers @ Bank of America Stadium
Seattle suffered a setback last week but we’re predicting them to bounce back against Carolina.
The Panthers have a new coach but that didn’t help them last week when they fell to 5-8 on the season.
The Seahawks will have to play this game on the road but they have a 6-1 record away from home and that statistic is good enough.
Bookmakers have the line at six points which is fair.
Betting tip: Seahawks -6 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Seahawks by 10
8:05am Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Oakland Raiders @ RingCentral Coliseum
Oakland has had an up and down season but they are hanging in there with a record of 6-7.
They play their best football at home (5-2) and Jacksonville hasn’t offered much inspiration this season at 4-9.
Bookmakers have Oakland as the –6.5 favourites which puts some doubts into our minds. Are they good enough to cover the spread?
Expect the Jaguars to keep this one close.
Betting tip: Jaguars +6.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Raiders by 3
8:05am Cleveland Browns vs. Arizona Cardinals @ State Farm Stadium
Following both of these teams has been tough for punters this season but it should be an entertaining game.
Cleveland will be without Odell Beckham Jnr and that will be a big loss to their roster.
Arizona is capable of beating a team like the Browns, which have faltered under pressure throughout the season
This could be a defining moment for the Cards.
Betting tip: Cardinals +2.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Cardinals by 7
8:05am Minnesota Vikings vs. LA Chargers @ Dignity Health Sports Park
It’s hard to be inspired by what the Chargers are offering this season. Therefore, we’re going with the Vikings here.
Minnesota has done well to sit at 9-4 on the season and although they have a losing record on the road, Kirk Cousins is having one of his best seasons.
Bookies have the line at –2.5 for the Vikings, which is much better value than what we thought the line would be. We thought it would be Vikings –6.5.
Betting tip: Vikings –2.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Vikings by 7
8:25am LA Rams vs. Dallas Cowboys @ AT&T Stadium
The Cowboys need to win this game and then win next week against the Eagles to make the playoffs.
Winning this game is a must for the Cowboys, but it’s also a big game for the Rams, which are in the playoff wildcard hunt.
The loser is all but out of the playoff race, so the question is which team can handle the pressure?
Rams got to the Super Bowl last season. Therefore, we’re going with the road team in a very tight affair.
Betting tip: Rams -1 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Rams by 4
8:25am Atlanta Falcons vs. San Francisco 49ers @ Levi’s Stadium
Atlanta has improved significantly throughout the second half of the season. However, they’re coming up against one of the Super Bowl favourites.
San Fran is 11-2 on the season and they should be too good for the injured Falcons team.
With a top defense and a more-than-capable offense, the 49ers are a team not to be messed with in 2019.
Betting tip: 49ers –11 @ $1.90 Bet Now
49ers by 16
12:20pm Buffalo Bills vs. Pittsburgh Steelers @ Heinz Field
It’s never easy to beat the Steelers at home but the Bills have also been playing well on the road.
The Bills are 5-1 away from home and although they fly under the radar, they are attracting attention with bookmakers.
That being said, Pittsburgh will play this game tough and they should be able to score a narrow victory at Heinz Field.
Betting tip: Steelers –2 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Steelers by 6
12:15pm Indianapolis Colts vs. New Orleans Saints @ Mercedez Benz Stadium
The Colts are trending negatively with a 6-7 record and the Saints are going in the right direction at 10-3.
Beating the Saints at home is tough and we’re predicting them to hold the fort at home this Tuesday.
Bookmakers have the line at 9.5 but that could go to double-figures come game time.
Betting tip: Saints –9.5 @ $1.90 Bet Now
Saints by 14
