Tim Tebow gets another start at QB for the Broncos, and NFL prop bettors get another shot at making some cash on the one player everyone seems to either love or love to hate.
Tebow made his first-ever NFL start last week in Denver's 29-23 loss to Oakland. He completed 8 of 16 passes for 138 yards with one touchdown strike. Tebow's biggest strength is his rushing ability and he displayed that last week as well with 78 rushing yards and a TD on eight carries.

The New York Jets got back on track last week with an upset win over the Steelers, and they'll look for another upset this weekend when they travel to Chicago to face the NFC-North-leading Bears.
New York was a 4-point road underdog on the NFL odds last week and went into Pittsburgh and knocked off the Steelers 22-17. That snapped the Jets' two-game winning streak, as their offense finally found the end zone after being held to field goals in those two losses.

We tried a new score prediction model in Week 15 and it dominated, so we ran it again this week and will share the NFL picks with the class.
In Week 15, through the Sunday night games, the computer running our fancy formula predicted scores and nailed the total 13 times! That's right, 13 correct picks and two wrong ones.
It was almost as good against the spread, with a 10-4-1 ATS mark in 15 games. We don't think this formula will work well early in the season, but from Weeks 10 onward, we think it has great success potential.

The San Diego Chargers' playoff lives may be hanging by a thread, but they still boast the No. 2 offense and the No. 1 defense in the NFL to secure the top spot in the NFL power rankings this week.
The Top 4 all remains the same this week, but the No. 5 spot is different after the Green Bay Packers jumped up three spots even without Aaron Rodgers at the helm. Can the Packers continue their rise now that their starting QB is cleared to return to action this week?

Don't listen to people who tell you the Detroit Lions are a lousy team.
Laying down money on the Lions has been a lucrative act by those doing NFL betting so far this season, and they'll get a chance to pad their bankroll this weekend with the Lions listed by the oddsmakers on their opening lines as underdogs in Miami.

The Bears have lost three straight and seven of their last eight at Minnesota, but it will be a different story for Chicago on Monday when they face the Vikings in the first outdoor NFL game in Minnesota in 29 years.

Another weekend of NFL football means another backup quarterback set to start and open up the betting for NFL props bettors. This week's victim is Green Bay's Matt Flynn.
As of right now Flynn hasn't officially been named the Packers' starter for Week 15, but that hasn't stopped the oddsmakers from dishing out the props. Flynn must start for any wagers on those props to count, but unless Aaron Rodgers makes an unexpected quick recovery from a concussion Flynn will be out there in New England on Sunday.
