NFL odds Week 15: Green Bay Packers will cowl at Lambeau, different greatest bets

Effectively, now we have reached the purpose within the season when now we have NFL video games on Saturdays. That is how you understand it is nearly time for playoffs.

However not so quick, as we have nonetheless acquired a couple of weeks of the common season left. There are a ton of big matchups with potential playoff implications this week, so let’s dive into my Week 15 greatest bets that can hopefully win us all some money (odds by way of FOX Wager).

Can Brock Purdy carry the 49ers to a Tremendous Bowl after clinching the NFC West?

Can Brock Purdy carry the 49ers to a Super Bowl after clinching the NFC West?

Chiefs at Texans (1 p.m. ET Sunday, CBS)

The Texans are as soon as once more enormous underdogs this Sunday, every week after almost beating the Dallas Cowboys in Dallas as 17-point underdogs. 

This weekend, they’re 14-point underdogs internet hosting the Chiefs, and I’d not fault you for wagering on them. The Chiefs routinely play right down to opponents, and that is one other prime spot for that. I don’t really feel comfy making that wager as a result of the Chiefs might resolve to not play with their meals on Sunday and make this a big blowout. Whereas I didn’t just like the aspect, I do like a prop for this contest.

Patrick Mahomes is on tempo for his greatest season as a passer. He’s averaging 320 yards per recreation and is on tempo for shut to five,500 yards this season. Final weekend in opposition to one of many higher move defenses within the recreation, he threw for 352 yards however turned it over thrice. The three turnovers within the second half have been essentially the most turnovers he has had in a recreation all season. 

Understanding how Mahomes operates, I’d count on him to have a “get right game” in opposition to the Texans — a recreation the place he’s tremendous environment friendly with the ball and has monster passing numbers.  

Take his over passing yards prop.

PICK: Patrick Mahomes Over 304.5 passing yards (-120 at FOX Wager, wager $10 to win $18.33 whole)

Rams at Packers (8:15 p.m. ET Monday, ESPN)

The Baker Mayfield redemption story is what sports activities are all about. The underdog, with little preparation, takes his workforce down the sphere to win the sport on the ultimate play. Disney couldn’t write a greater script. Now the Rams, losers of six in a row earlier than the miracle on Thursday night time, journey to Green Bay for Monday Night time Soccer. Everyone seems to be rooting for Rams as underdogs.

Not so quick, everybody.

The Rams will not be good, even with Baker Mayfield at quarterback. They wanted 14 factors within the span of 5 minutes to win that recreation. If the Raiders get another first down, there’s no comeback. The Rams have a battered offensive line, their greatest receiver (Cooper Kupp) is out and Aaron Donald is on injured reserve. The Rams beat a Raiders workforce that has blown double-digit leads in 4 video games this season, plus misplaced to the Jeff Saturday-led Colts.

Not at all are the Packers an excellent soccer workforce, however they’ve been taking part in higher ball of late. There’s additionally a scant likelihood this workforce can attain the playoffs. The Packers are additionally rested, coming off their bye. I’d think about some self-scouting occurred in the course of the two weeks, and we should always see improved play. 

There’s nothing the Rams are higher at than the Packers. So I’ll take the Packers right here, even with the large quantity.

PICK: Packers (-6.5 at FOX Wager) to win by greater than 6.5 factors
