Before the fifteenth Sunday of the 2021 NFL regular season kicks off, let’s have some fun by taking a look at the spreads for the Week 15 games. You can CLICK HERE for straight up NFL picks without regard to the spread. You can find all of the NFL betting lines via DraftKings SportsBook.

My overall record so far is 106-101. That’s tied with the BGN community, which is also 106-101.

Here are the latest suggestions when trying to beat the odds.

NFL WEEK 15 GAMES

DALLAS COWBOYS (-11.5) at NEW YORK GIANTS: It might seem like a lot of points, especially with Dak Prescott slumping. But the Cowboys typically own the Giants. New York is especially hopeless without Daniel Jones starting for them. PICK: Cowboys -11.5

HOUSTON TEXANS at JACKSONVILLE JAGUARS (-5): The Jags giving five points seems crazy when they’ve only averaged 9.1 points scored in their last seven games. But I’m a believer in the “crappy head coach just got fired” bump. I’m also very much not a believer in Davis Mills. The Jags are going to win this game. It’s just a matter of covering. PICK: Jaguars -5

TENNESSEE TITANS at PITTSBURGH STEELERS (-1): Despite their 9-4 record, the Titans are merely 21st in weighted DVOA. But the Stillers are even worse at 24th overall. I’ll take the point. PICK: Titans +1

CAROLINA PANTHERS at BUFFALO BILLS (-14): The Panthers feel pretty hopeless given their awful quarterback situation. They just don’t have a viable option at that position. PICK: Bills -14

NEW YORK JETS at MIAMI DOLPHINS (-10): Have you seen the Jets play? Yes, you have. And they’re pretty hopeless. The well-rested Dolphins should be able to keep their hot streak going, much to the chagrin of the Eagles. PICK: Dolphins -10

ATLANTA FALCONS at SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (-8.5): How the Falcons have six wins is beyond me. They’re dead last in DVOA. The 49ers aren’t perfect but they’ve been able to execute their winning formula recently. PICK: 49ers -8.5
