NFL Week 15 odds: Making a case for each favorite

Looking at the NFL Week 15 odds, we give a reason or two why each favorite can both win and cover their respective spreads.

Kansas City Chiefs (-3) at Los Angeles Chargers

The Chiefs are playing like the best defense in the NFL, and the offense is capable of scoring 30+ at any moment.

Las Vegas Raiders at Cleveland Browns (-3)

Even with a slew of COVID issues, the Browns are significantly better than the Raiders, who have looked done for the past six weeks.

New England Patriots at Indianapolis Colts (-2.5)

Indy is desperate and at home off a bye. The Patriots are a one-dimensional offense, one built for the Colts to exploit with their front seven.

Arizona Cardinals (-13.5) at Detroit Lions

The Cardinals are getting the Lions. It’s the gift from Heaven for a bounce-back after losing to the Rams.

Carolina Panthers at Buffalo Bills (-10.5)

The Panthers don’t have a quarterback, and the Bills are essentially facing a must-win situation against a bad team.

Dallas Cowboys (-10.5) at New York Giants

If the Cowboys lose to the Giants, they should have to walk back from New Jersey. Big Blue is waiting for the season to end.

Houston Texans at Jacksonville Jaguars (-3)

The Texans might be the only team Jacksonville can beat. Then again, who the heck knows at this point.

New York Jets at Miami Dolphins (-8.5)

Getting the Jets, off a bye week, at home. How do you say 7-7?

Tennessee Titans (-1.5) at Pittsburgh Steelers

Pittsburgh has struggled to score points consistently and most importantly, block. It’s a problem against Tennessee’s excellent front.

Washington Football Team at Philadelphia Eagles (-4.5)

The Eagles are at home off their bye with the better quarterback. Also, Washington is dealing with a litany of coronavirus issues.

Atlanta Falcons at San Francisco 49ers (-9)

Atlanta deserves credit for being 6-7 with its roster, but the 49ers are playing well, are far more talented and the Falcons have to come across the country.

Cincinnati Bengals at Denver Broncos (-1.5)

The Broncos have the defense to give Cincinnati problems, and the offense should be able to run effectively. Tough place to play as well for the visiting Bengals.

Green Bay Packers (-4.5) at Baltimore Ravens

Baltimore can’t stop the pass, and can’t score. Tough combination against the league’s best team.

Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Rams (-4.5)

Provided Los Angeles gets its COVID outbreak under control, the Rams are far more talented on both sides of the ball than Seattle.

New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-10.5)

The Saints are all beat up and have Taysom Hill at quarterback. The Buccaneers literally have five or six weapons better than anybody available on New Orleans save Alvin Kamara.

Minnesota Vikings (-3.5) at Chicago Bears

If the Vikings can’t handle the Bears, well, then they’re the Vikings doing what they do.
