NFL Week 15 Opening Odds Analysis

It still seems strange for old-timers like myself, brought up on the Vince Lombardi power sweep, to see NFL totals in the 50's.

There have been totals of 50 points or higher in all but two of the weeks this NFL season. This Week 15 is no exception with an over/under of 51 in the Detroit-New Orleans Monday night game and 50.5 in the Arizona-Philadelphia matchup.

Top Brazil Sports Betting Sites

Though online sports betting is very common in Brazil, surprisingly enough there are no true Brazilian sportsbooks online. Bettors must be extremely careful as many sites that claim to be Brazilian sportsbooks are illegal and unsafe to use. The Brazilian sports betting population must look internationally to find a legitimate sportsbook that is safe for them to use. Currently, there are 462 international sportsbooks that welcome Brazilian bettors, with over 30 of them offering Portuguese language support.

Lightning Struggling Without Any Rest

The Tampa Bay Lightning are coming off a 2-1 victory over the Columbus Blue Jackets on Monday, but that could spell some doom for them Tuesday when they visit the Toronto Maple Leafs. The Lightning are just 1-8 in their last nine games without a days rest.

The Lightning are middling this season with their offense sputtering. Tampa has averaged just 2.32 goals per game this season and only Steven Stamkos has more than 20 points so far on the season. Tampa’s wins have come thanks to their defense as they have allowed the fewest goals per game in the NHL this season.

It seems like the Leafs are back to Jonathan Bernier in net after the goaltender went 3-0-1 with a .948 save percentage in four games in the AHL. Bernier has been terrible with the big club this season as he is just 0-8-1 with a 3.28 GAA in the NHL.

Chargers are Lights Out on the UNDER

Miami Dolphins Jarvis Landry

It’s not the most attractive matchup on the Week 15 NFL slate, but there’s plenty of betting value to be found in the Miami Dolphins-San Diego Chargers contest in the Golden State. Miami has historically enjoyed facing San Diego, as the Fish are 9-2 SU in their last 11 against the Bolts.

Shark Bites
  • The Dolphins are 7-2 ATS in their last nine games against the Chargers.
  • The Chargers are 7-17 ATS in their last 24 games.
  • The Dolphins are 1-3 SU and ATS in their last four games on the road.

Neither side has been particularly great at the betting window this season. Miami (4-9 ATS) has covered the spread just once in their prior seven games, while San Diego is 5-8 ATS on the season. The Chargers have scored three points on three different occasions in their last four games which has unsurprisingly been a nice boost for UNDER bettors. The UNDER has cashed three times during that span.

Week 15 Odds: Steelers vs Broncos

Tomlin Ben Steelers

Two of the hottest teams in the AFC meet in Steeltown when the Pittsburgh Steelers host the Denver Broncos.  Both teams are entering the stretch run hot, but the favorite is just 2-5 ATS in the past seven games between the Steelers and Broncos. 

Brock Osweiler was pretty much fed to the wolves in the Broncos’ last game. Despite being just Osweiler’s fifth career start, he was forced to throw 51 times and ended up being sacked five times by Khalil Mack. Defensively, the Broncos are still the best in the NFL and have allowed a combined 57 points in their last four outings.

The Steelers are 4-1 SU in their past five games thanks to an explosive offense that has averaged 35.2 points during that span. Pittsburgh’s aerial attack has been the leading cause for this offensive boom as the passing game has accounted for nearly 80 percent of their offensive yardage.

Could Bengals Be In Danger vs San Fran?

Bengals Green

It seems like just days ago this game would have been a complete laugher, but with Andy Dalton out of the contest between the Cincinnati Bengals and San Francisco 49ers, we have a completely different looking game on our hands. The Bengals have also struggled against the 49ers as they are just 2-10 SU in their last 12 games against San Fran.

It’s now the A.J. McCarron show in Cincinnati as Dalton will be out four-to-six weeks with a fractured hand. The Alabama alum has not started a single game in his career, but had extended play last week when he threw for 280 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. The Bengals’ running game has been inconsistent this season as they’ve rushed for 140+ yards in three of the last seven hames, but less than 100 in the other four games.

Since becoming the starter for the 49ers Blaine Gabbert has been consistent with a 63.2 completion percentage while throwing for six touchdowns and three interceptions. However, the protection is starting to break down again as Gabbert was sacked nine times last week against the Cleveland Browns.

Browns Have Been A Bad Investment

Manziel Browns

The Cleveland Browns are not good, but you already knew that. The Browns are just 3-10 SU and 4-8-1 ATS this season while failing to cover in six of their last seven games. It’s not going to be easy for the Browns to rectify that situation this week as they visit the Seattle Seahawks Sunday.

 

Johnny Manziel is back and aside from ruining $100 bills, he performed admirably last week with 270 yards passing with one touchdown and one pick.  Running back Isaiah Crowell blew up last week with 145 yards and two touchdowns. But remember, all of these numbers came against the 49ers, so take it with a grain of salt.

 

Why do we ever question the Seahawks? After starting the season 2-3 they went on a run and are now 8-5 and in prime position to make the playoffs. Quietly, Russell Wilson has become one of the best passers in the NFL with the signal caller throwing for 14 touchdowns and no interceptions in the past four games.

Packers are Dominating the AFC West

Lacy Green Bay Packers NFL

The Green Bay Packers have bounced back from a midseason slump to win three of their past four and that streak could continue in Week 15 if history holds true. The Packers are 12-2 SU and 11-3 ATS in their last 14 games against the AFC West and they will visit the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. 

The Packers defense has been tearing it up lately as they have only allowed 15.6 points per game in their last five games with only one team surpassing the 20-point plateau. Green Bay’s pass defense has been stepping up as they have only allowed 216.5 passing yards per game and less than a touchdown during their past five games.

If the Packers want to beat the Raiders, they will need to somehow stop Khalil Mack. The linebacker has nine sacks in the past three weeks, including a ridiculous five-sack performance last week against the Broncos.
