NFL Week 15 Betting Picks


NFL Betting – Week 15 Picks Houston Texans @ St. Louis Rams

NFL Betting Odds: Texans -11

The Houston Texans will take on the St. Louis Rams this week in what should be a second straight cupcake matchup against an NFC West team. Last week, the Texans absolutely crushed the Seattle Seahawks and this week, they are likely to do the same to the Rams.

Things can’t get much worse for the Rams right now. Just days after being blown out by the Tennessee Titans and being forced to start their third string quarterback, the Rams were forced to cancel practice completely on Thursday because of a swine flu bug riddling the team.

Quarterback Kyle Boller and center Jason Brown were among the ill, which means the Rams will be even more shorthanded heading into this week’s contest.

The Texans are a very good, young team and while they have struggled to win important games this year, they have no problem winning when the pressure is off.

The Rams don’t have the defense to slow down the Texans and they don’t have the offense to score points with them. On top of that, the Rams are a completely defeated team at this point while the Texans have a small, outside chance to still make the playoffs.

Bet Mania Reviews Picks: Texans -11

Green Bay Packers @ Pittsburgh Steelers

NFL Betting Lines: Steelers -1.5

The Green Bay Packers will catch a break when they head out on the road to face the Pittsburgh Steelers as they are expected to be without Pro Bowl safety Troy Polamalu once again.

The Steelers have been a completely different team with or without Polamalu in the lineup as indicated by their 13-6 loss to the feeble Cleveland Browns last week.

The Packers will still be in tough this week because this will be their second consecutive road game and the Steelers are still a tough team to beat at home. On top of that, the Steelers have had 10 days to prepare for this contest so they should be a little more focused and ready for this game.

The Packers also don’t have much of a running game, which makes them a tough team to trust when they are on the road. They constantly have to rely on the pass.

Look for the Steelers to bounce back and end their ugly five-game losing streak with a big win over the Packers.

NFL Prediction: Steelers -1.5

Tiger Woods Wife Leaves the House with their ChildrensThe wife of golfer Tiger Woods, the former Swedish model Elin Nordegren, began moving to leave shortly, along with his two sons, the residence she shared with the well-known sportsman, today publishes the New York Post.

Southern Mississippi Eagles vs Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders

Sportsbook Odds: Southern Miss -4

The Southern Mississippi Eagles and Middle Tennessee Blue Raiders will have their first ever meeting on the gridiron in the New Orleans Bowl this weekend.

It has been a banner year for Middle Tennessee, which won nine games. They joined the FBS in 1999 and this has clearly been their best year by far. This is their second bowl appearance overall.

The Blue Raiders are led by quarterback Dwight Dasher, who threw for 2627 yards and 21 touchdowns this year. He’s a dual threat and a serious one at that. He added another 11 touchdowns and 953 yards on the ground.

For Southern Miss, a lot of college football betting experts thought their season would go down the tubes when they lost quarterback Austin Davis for the year. Martevious Young stepped in after Davis was lost midway through the year and the offense didn’t really skip much of a beat. For a third straight year, the Eagles churned out over 5000 yards of offense, which is fairly impressive given the circumstances.

Young was very efficient with the football as he threw for 13 touchdowns and just one interception. His one interception came in the game against Memphis on October 17th and he hasn’t been picked off since.

The New Orleans Bowl will be the swan song for veteran running Damion Fletcher, who has had an illustrious career for the Eagles. He will need just 63 yards in the New Orleans Bowl to become just the ninth player in FBS history with four 1000-yard seasons.

While both teams are solid overall, there is slight difference between the two that may not be noticeable to the naked eye. The Blue Raiders may have nine wins but they have had a much easier schedule than Southern Miss. The Blue Raiders play in the feeble Sun Belt whereas Southern Miss is part of Conference USA.

That should be the main difference as Southern Miss may be the toughest opponent the Blue Raiders have faced since playing Mississippi State earlier in the year.

Another side note for this game is that the Eagles are coached by Larry Fedora, who sports wagering fans might remember coordinated the Middle Tennessee offense. He should have some insight into how to slow it down.

NFL Betting – Week 15 Picks Chicago Bears @ Baltimore Ravens

Sportsbook Odds: Ravens -10

If there is one team that is coming apart at the seams more than the Pittsburgh Steelers, it’s the Chicago Bears.

The Bears, who were 3-1 at one point this season, have lost seven of their last nine games and are just playing out their string of games. Meanwhile, the Baltimore Ravens are playing for a playoff spot.

The Ravens have been consistently inconsistent over their last eight games and they’ll be hoping to break the trend. The Ravens are 4-4 in that span and have alternated wins and losses every game. The Ravens won last week so they’ll hope to avoid the trend and win for a second week in a row.

While most people will be quick to hop on the Ravens bandwagon in this contest, keep in mind that these December contests don’t always turn out as planned. The Ravens have more on the line but the loose Bears may turn out to be a handful.

10 points is a lot for the Ravens to cover and while they should win, the Bears should be able to stay within the double-digit spread.

BetJamaica Review Picks: Bears +10

Cleveland Browns @ Kansas City Chiefs

Sports Betting Odds: Chiefs -1

If you’re looking for the highlight game of the week, it won’t be this one.

The Cleveland Browns and Kansas City Chiefs meet up in a battle of basement bums in the AFC. The Chiefs are at a low-point right now after losing at home in back-to-back games to the Denver Broncos and Buffalo Bills. Meanwhile, the Browns are on cloud nine after topping the Pittsburgh Steelers last Thursday night.

The Browns do deserve some credit as they have played well since Brady Quinn took over the quarterbacking duties. Since their bye week, the Browns lost a close game to Baltimore (closer than the score indicates), lost on the last play of the game to the Detroit Lions, put up a fight in Cincinnati, lost by seven to the San Diego Chargers and defeated the Steelers.

Quinn’s play over that time is what has led this team. Over his last four games, Quinn has thrown for six touchdowns and no interceptions. He has been a big leader for the Browns.

This will be a tough test for them but they are more confident right now and that should be the difference.

NFL Betting Picks: Browns +1
