NFL Week 15 Picks Against the Spread

After going 10-6 last week I am now 98-109 against the spread for the year, time to keep plugging away and have another good week this week. As usual spreads are from http://www.footballlocks.com/

Thursday Night

@St. Louis -4.5 OVER Arizona- The Rams are coming off consecutive shutouts against the Raiders and Washington and the Cardinals offense has been reeling since losing Carson Palmer. I’m taking the Rams because I don’t feel it’s enough points to take Drew Stanton

Sunday Early Games

Oakland +10 OVER @Kansas City- This line is WAY too high for a a Chiefs team that can’t throw the ball and lost to Oakland the last time around.

@Baltimore -13.5 OVER Jacksonville- Baltimore at home is 4-2 this year and have won every game at home this year by at least 14 points, which would be enough to cover this spread, I like the Ravens to put up a bunch of points in this one against a bad Jaguars team.

Cincinnati +1 OVER @Cleveland- The Bengals as underdogs against Johnny Manziel in his NFL debut? yes please

@New England -7.5 OVER Miami- New England should be able to dispose of this struggling Miami team and end their playoff hopes at Foxborough, where they are undefeated this year.

@Atlanta +2.5 OVER Pittsburgh- If Julio Jones plays Atlanta Covers if he sits they don’t, it’s that simple.

@Carolina -3 OVER Tampa Bay- Anything to keep the NFC South a 3 team race between sub .500 teams

Green Bay -5 OVER @Buffalo- This line seems really low to me, and Green Bay is the best team in the league and deserves a higher line than this.

@NY Giants -6.5 OVER Washington- Washington is terrible and this line isn’t nearly high enough.

Houston +6.5 OVER @Indianapolis- I feel another cover against the Colts. Andrew Luck has been playing pretty sloppy recently, averaging two turnovers per game since coming off the bye and I think the Texans can use that to their advantage to cover and maybe even win this game.

Sunday Late Games

NY Jets +1.5 OVER @Tennessee- The Titans are 0-2 this year when favored in games and I feel like this is a big Chris Johnson revenge game.

Denver -4 OVER @San Diego- This line seems low to me, Denver may not have blown away anyone in their win against Buffalo last week, but they still beat them by 7, and San Diego wishes their defense was as good as the Bills’.

@Seattle -10 OVER San Francisco- The fact that the 49ers went from being a 10 point favorite to a 10 point underdog in a week says a lot about how much this team is struggling, I’m taking the suddenly good again Seahawks at home.

@Detroit -8 OVER Minnesota- Detroit is 5-2 against the spread at home and now that their offense is clicking I think they should cover again against Minnesota.

Sunday Night Game

Dallas +3.5 OVER @Philadelphia- Dallas is 5-1 against the spread on the road this season and I think they find a way to run the ball in this game against the Eagles and win or keep it close.

Monday Night Game

New Orleans -3 OVER @Chicago- Anything to keep the NFC South crazy.
