We were 3-1 last week and are really excited about this week’s slate of NFL picks. Indeed, football betting this time of the year is a lot of fun, since you have seen a lot of all of the teams and can feel a little more sure of yourself when assessing the football betting options. Let’s get to our week 15 NFL picks, folks.

Week 15 NFL Picks
New England Patriots (-3.5) at Denver Broncos
The defending champions are on the ropes and may need to run the table just to get into the playoffs. It won’t be easy, as they’ve got the toughest remaining schedule and it starts with the Pats. That said, New England isn’t playing for a whole lot right now and they’re coming off a short week. Had A.J. Derby not fumbled late last week Denver probably wins on the road. The Broncos D loves playing Tom Brady. Give us Von Miller and the home underdog.
Miami Dolphins (-2.5) at New York Jets
No Ryan Tannehill and a road game in December for Miami? No thanks. The Jets showed a lot of guts last week in coming from behind versus the Niners. Bryce Petty is building confidence right now. Remember, the Jets were talented enough last year to nearly make the playoffs. Meanwhile we’ve seen enough of Matt Moore to know not to bet on him. Take another home underdog and the J-E-T-S.
Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks (-14)
Yes, the Rams have a history of playing Seattle tough. But they’ve just lost their coach and are coming off of a short week. Throw in the fact that the Seahawks were just embarrassed on the road and this one could get ugly in a hurry. Give me the 12th man and the hometown Seahawks to blow out the rookie quarterback.
Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs (-5.5)
Titans squeaked out a win last week at home, but they could have easily lost as well. Meanwhile, the Chiefs are getting better and better each week. KC’s last home game was a loss to the Bucs and so they’ll be eager to make amends to their fans with a quality performance. Give me the Chiefs and lay the one possession point spread.
