NFL MVP Odds: Newton's to Lose

Cam Newton

With three weeks remaining in the NFL season, Cam Newton has taken a commanding lead in the MVP odds at Bovada, and with good reason. Newton has been the catalyst for the Carolina Panthers’ perfect season, having already set a career high with 28 touchdown passes along with a career best 96.9 quarterback rating.


TNF Betting Preview: Buccaneers at Rams

Tampa Bay NFL

Thanks to a 24-17 loss to the New Orleans Saints in Week 14, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers came back down to life after an impressive stretch that saw them win three of their previous four. Next up for Jameis Winston and company is a Thursday Night Football matchup with the St. Louis Rams in Missouri.

<h5>Shark Bites</h5>

<ul class="content-list">
<li>The visiting team is 3-8 SU in its last 11 games in this matchup.</li>
<li>The Buccaneers are 2-9 ATS in their last 11 games on the road in December.</li>
<li>The total has gone UNDER in eight of the Buccaneers' last 11 games on the road.</li>

St. Louis is simply going through the motions at this point in a lost season, but they have had the edge against the Bucs in recent meetings. The Rams have covered the closing spread in their last four clashes with Tampa Bay. 

The Rams have been one of the top UNDER teams in the NFL this season due largely due to an inefficient offense. The OVER/UNDER has gone 3-10 in the Rams’ 2015 campaign. 

With the eyes of the nation squarely upon them, St. Louis has been a terrible bet when appearing on Thursday Night Football. The Rams are 1-6 ATS in their prior seven Thursday affairs.

NFL Week 15 OddsShark Computer Picks

I don’t think many people expected a 51-point day from the Jacksonville Jaguars last week, but it was exactly what we got. The Jags put up the most points in their team’s not-so-illustrious existence thanks to a performance that saw the offense, defense and special teams all score. The OddsShark Super Computer is a supporter of the Jags as it has tabbed Jacksonville to pound the Atlanta Falcons 31.1-16.6.


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.


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.

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.


<h5>Shark Bites</h5>


<ul class="content-list">

               <li>The visiting team is 0-3 SU in the last three games between these teams.</li>

               <li>The Seahawks will be without leading rusher Thomas Rawls as he broke his ankle last week.</li>

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.

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.

Bills Have Steamrolled the Redskins

Taylor Bills

The Buffalo Bills are coming off an emotional loss, especially for LeSean McCoy, but they enter Week 15 with history on their side. The Bills are 6-0 SU and ATS in their past six contests against their Week 15 opponents, the Washington Redskins. 

The Bills have lost three of their past four contests with each of those losses coming on the road. Those three road losses have seen the Bills come out flat in the second half as they have averaged just 8.7 points after halftime. Despite an inefficient offense, Tyrod Taylor has become one of the best quarterbacks at protecting the ball with just one interception in his past seven games.

The Redskins have now alternated wins and losses since Week 6, but are still in the lead in the NFC East (because it is awful). Kirk Cousins has limited major mistakes as the season has gone on with the signal caller throwing for 12 touchdowns and three interceptions in the Redskins past seven games.
