Brock & Shane’s NFL Best Bets – Week 15
INDIANAPOLIS COLTS at MINNESOTA VIKINGS
Best Bet: Vikings Alternate Spread -6 +112
Do not think about this matchup too much. Vikings at home “should”annihilate this team.
BALTIMORE RAVENS at CLEVELAND BROWNS
Best Bet: Ravens +3 -127
Until Deshaun Watson can shake off that rust, I think it’s wise to fade him. Buy the 0.5 to get to the key number of +3 just to be safe.
MIAMI DOLPHINS at BUFFALO BILLS
Best Bet: Dolphins +7 -110
Things haven’t been going well for Miami lately. If they want any chance at a divisional title, they need a win here. That, along with the forecasted snow, makes me think this one will stay close.
PHILADELPHIA EAGLES at CHICAGO BEARS
Best Bet: AJ Brown Anytime Touchdown -115
He’s a beast and the trend is starting where he is becoming a top WR in this league, if he’s not already.
ATLANTA FALCONS at NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
Best Bet: Over 43.5 -110
The best bet here for everybody is the over. Both these teams scream why they suck and why they can’t score so it makes sense the over will hit.
DETROIT LIONS at NEW YORK JETS
Best Bet: Jets +1 -110
The Lions are one of the hottest teams in football at the moment, but have had trouble with tough defenses this season. The Jets have one of those, so I like the home team getting a point in this one.
PITTSBURGH STEELERS at CAROLINA PANTHERS
Best Bet: Steelers +3 -115
Mike Tomlin underdog spot AND a key number? Yes, please. He and the Steelers have proven profitable in these spots over the years, so I’ll ride it ‘til the wheels fall off.
DALLAS COWBOYS at JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS
Best Bet: Over 47.5 -110
No matter what happens, evens if Jaguars somehow manage to keep it close, the over has it hit. Both teams’ offense are poised.
KANSAS CITY CHIEFS at HOUSTON TEXANS
Best Bet: Under 49.5 -110
The Texans have been lost on offense this season. Their only bright spot has been Dameon Pierce in the ground game. Chances are they will lean on him here once again, which will keep that clock moving. The Chiefs will get their points, but I’m sure they will want to do so on long, sustained drives. I’m betting the Chiefs will find themselves in good shape in the 2nd half and be in a position to salt away the clock.
ARIZONA CARDINALS at DENVER BRONCOS
Best Bet: Latavius Murray Anytime TD +140
Broncos will run the ball win, lose, or draw. You have to believe with his sudden energy, he will score.
NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS at LAS VEGAS RAIDERS
Best Bet: Davante Adams Anytime TD -120
McDaniels is going to cook something up special for his home welcoming of Bill and Devante is stil m one of the best athletes on the field.
TENNESSEE TITANS at LOS ANGELES CHARGERS
Best Bet: Titans +3 -110
If there were ever a spot to buy low, it’s here with Tennessee. The Titans have dropped 3 straight games, including a 14-point home loss to Jacksonville last week. Simply put, this team is better than their recent results. I think the losing streak either stops here against a leaky run defense, or at worst they keep it close.
CINCINNATI BENGALS at TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS
Best Bet: Bengals Alternate Spread -6 +125
Do not read too much into it. They should detour easily accusing a weak and hurt team.
NEW YORK GIANTS at WASHINGTON COMMANDERS
Best Bet: Commanders ML -225
I’m a little lost on this one, which is why I’m taking the ML as steep as it is. These teams tied in New York two weeks ago. Since then, the Commanders had a bye week to prepare for facing the same team two games in a row, and New York got run off the field by the Eagles. So, I like Washington to take this one, but I’m not exactly comfortable laying 4.5 points in a divisional rivalry game.
LOS ANGELES RAMS at GREEN BAY PACKERS
Best Bet: Packers Alternate Spread -9 +120
Aaron Rodgers has “relax” game vibes all over this so I would not be surprised if they go out and dominate against an upstart team.
