NFL Week 15 odds: Making a case for each favorite
NFL Week 15 begins with the Jets at the Ravens on Thursday Night Football. We make a case for each favorite bet in NFL Week 15.
New York Jets at Baltimore Ravens (-15)
The Ravens have been dominating over the past two and a half months. Why should the Jets, on a short week at home, be anything different?
Chicago Bears at Green Bay Packers (-4.5)
Green Bay hasn’t been blowing anybody out, but it has handled business to the tune of a 10-3 mark. Take the moneyline and don’t blink.
Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs (-10)
Kansas City’s won three straight and covered in all of those games. Now, the Chiefs come home and take on a Broncos team they beat 30-6 in October.
Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans (-3)
The Titans are playing some of the best ball in the league. Ryan Tannehill is 6-1 as a starter, and Derrick Henry is playing great.

Miami Dolphins at New York Giants (-3)
The Giants aren’t beating many teams, but this is the Dolphins on the road for a second straight week.
New England Patriots (-9) at Cincinnati Bengals
If the Patriots can’t hammer the Bengals, sound every alarm one earth.
Philadelphia Eagles (-6) at Washington Redskins
The Eagles have been a tire fire this year with a legion of injuries, but the Redskins have no offense. Philadelphia only needs to score 20 and it’s a wrap.
Seattle Seahawks (-6) at Carolina Panthers
Seattle is coming off a loss and knows it needs to win to stay alive in the NFC West. Also, the Panthers are fried after firing Ron Rivera.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-3.5) at Detroit Lions
The Buccaneers are actually playing good football. David Blough and the Lions are not.
Cleveland Browns (-2.5) at Arizona Cardinals
Cleveland is trying to keep its faint hopes alive for a playoff berth, taking on the Cardinals. Arizona hasn’t beaten a good team all year.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Oakland Raiders (-6.5)
In their final game before the Black Hole, the Raiders are going to come out firing. Brutal spot for Jacksonville.
Minnesota Vikings (-2.5) at Los Angeles Chargers
The Vikings are the better team, the desperate team, and the team that despite being on the road, will have more fans at the game.
Atlanta Falcons at San Francisco 49ers (-11)
San Francisco knows what’s ahead of it. The Rams and Seahawks wait over the final two weeks. A chance at the No. 1 seed. The 49ers aren’t losing to the Falcons.
Los Angeles Rams at Dallas Cowboys (PICK)
We’re treating the Rams as favorites, considering the road team always gets three points in an even affair. Los Angeles is playing good football, and the Cowboys have quit on Jason Garrett.
Buffalo Bills at Pittsburgh Steelers (-2)
Duck Hodges can’t lose. The defense is also pretty damn nasty.
Indianapolis Colts at New Orleans Saints (-9)
Indianapolis is injury-ravaged and out of the race. The Saints take out their frustrations on the Colts.
