Week 15 screams playoffs implications games; every team in the NFL is looking to stay alive to have a shot at the end of the year. There were 101 TDs in week 14, which this weekend, with all the teams pressured to win, could have even more.
Here are the NFL Predictions for the NFL Week 15
San Diego Chargers +10.5 at Denver Broncos -10.5. Game Total: 55.5
Peyton Manning and the Broncos can’t afford to lose a game because the Patriots are right there and could take home field advantage from them. He proved he can throw the ball in cold with 4 TDs passes against the Tennessee Titans.
“Whoever wrote that narrative can shove that one where the sun don’t shine,” Peyton Manning told Denver radio station 850 KOA when asked about the cold after the win. “So, I felt pretty good out there today.”
The total has gone OVER in 7 of Denver’s last 8 games at home, and it has gone OVER in 4 of Denver’s last 5 games when playing at home against San Diego.
Prediction: Over 55.5.
Philadelphia Eagles -4.5 at Minnesota Vikings +4.5. Game Total: 45.
The Vikings won’t have RBs Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart due to injuries.
“Well, it’s a little painful,” Peterson said of his foot, via the Minneapolis Star Tribune. “Obviously it kept me out of the game. The MRI came back great so that’s good. Just got to get a CT scan to make sure the bone is OK.”
The Philadelphia Eagles are playing tremendously having won five in a row. Philadelphia is 4-0-1 ATS in its last 5 games.
Also, Minnesota is 1-4 ATS in its last 5 games when playing at home against Philadelphia.
Prediction: Eagles -4.5.
NY Jets +10.5 at Carolina Panthers -10.5. Game Total: 40.5.
The Carolina Panthers need to bounce back after looking awful against the New Orleans Saints; their defense in particular will be looking to meet Geno Smith, not the one who played great against the Raiders, but regular Geno, the turnover machine.
“As I told them (Sunday) night, this was a very humbling experience. Maybe we needed a little bit of that. Maybe we got a little full of ourselves and thought we were capable of just showing up,” head coach Ron Rivera said Monday. “I’m not saying that’s what we did because there were some bright spots. We did some good things early.”
NY Jets are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games on the road; Carolina is 5-0 SU in its last 5 games at home.
Prediction: Panthers -10.5.
Cincinnati Bengals -3 at Pittsburgh Steelers +3. Game Total: 40.5.
The Bengals have won three in a row, and looked good beating the Indianapolis Colts on Sunday; however, Cincinnati is 2-4 ATS in its last 6 games when playing on the road against Pittsburgh.
The Steelers played horrible, especially on defense against Miami, and there’s no reason to think they can improve. They can’t defend, but they do score plenty of points as the total has gone OVER in 4 of Pittsburgh’s last 6 games.
Prediction: Over 40.5.
Let's have fun and keep it civil.
