The Buffalo Bills mistake-filled performance – along with a big blown lead – in Week 14 cost us a chance at going 4-0 last week. Nonetheless, it was still a productive 3-1 on the moneylines for NFL betting fans who followed our advice.
Now let’s see if we can keep the momentum going in Week 15. We’re looking at two big favorites, one sizable dog and – once again – the Bills.
The key here, beyond the fact that the Saints are trying to lock down a top-two seed and pursue home-field advantage throughout the NFC playoffs, is that Carolina’s Cam Newton is not fully healthy. He will probably play in this game, but people who cover the Panthers think that the Panthers should not chase the No. 6 seed in the NFC at all costs.
Newton’s regression during this nightmarish five-game losing streak has been quite evident as he eight interceptions in those games. He had just four interceptions in his first eight games this season.
On top of that, the Panthers defense is melting down. They’ve allowed 30.4 points per game after giving up 22.5 in their first eight. This team is flawed on both sides and now they’re getting a visit from the top team in the NFC. The Saints are a perfect 4-0 this season and have won 13 of their 15 against teams with a losing record. Bet on them to win in this spot with 888Sport.
The Chicago Bears, following the Minnesota Vikings’ loss on Monday Night Football in Seattle, can win the NFC North if they win this game. That is a lot of motivation for the Bears, who have dramatically turned themselves around in one season thanks to Khalil Mack and an elite defense coached by coordinator Vic Fangio.
The publicity goes to quarterback Mitchell Trubisky, but the offense is peripheral to what the Bears do. It’s all about the defense, which shut down the Los Angeles Rams this past weekend.
The Green Bay Packers are not a good team, but they do have Aaron Rodgers, and they looked very solid against the Atlanta Falcons in Joe Philbin’s first game as the team’s interim head coach.
Rodgers would love nothing more than to ruin the Bears’ plans to clinch. He has made the Bears miserable over the years and might treat this game as his Super Bowl before riding into the offseason. The Packers will play this game with a lot of pride, and that’s a great reason to take a shot with them.
It’s hard to back the Lions here in this spot. This is a team that’s truly banged up all over the place with injuries at running back, offensive line, wide receiver, defensive line and more. Their offense has gone into the tank in recent weeks as they have scored 20 or less in six of their last seven.
Now they’re on the road facing a Bills team that has played well at home with Josh Allen under center. The Bills blew last week’s game because of three turnovers and a slew of special teams mistakes, but if they clean that up, they’ll get this win. Buffalo has played fairly well over the last month of action.
This might be the easiest play of the weekend. The Rams have not played a home game in roughly one month. They labored on the road and should be overjoyed to be back home. One of the biggest issues is that the Rams haven’t gotten much from Todd Gurley, who has been held to 68 yards rushing or less in three of his last five.
The good news is this week he’ll see the Eagles run defense, which is allowing 4.9 yards per carry (28th in the NFL).
The Eagles’ offense simply can’t turn the corner. This offense looks nothing like the group which shredded the NFC for much of last season. They are 28th in rushing themselves and that’s putting a lot of pressure on Carson Wentz and the passing game, which simply doesn’t look in sync.
Add in the fact that the Eagles could be flat after losing in an emotionally-charged road game against the Dallas Cowboys last week – their rival – and it’s hard to envision any other result here besides a Rams victory. Bet on it with Betfair.
