We’re down to the penultimate week of the 2018/19 NFL season and things are getting tight at the top.
The playoff race is heating up and with seasons and careers on the line, tipping becomes a more fascinating affair.
After a middling week in round 15, we’re ready to bounce back in a big way.
Coming into Week 15 I have compiled picks, with their spreads, for all of the NFL action this week.
Washington Redskins vs. Tennessee Titans (-10) O/U 37
Pretty easy in this game for both teams, as they e ach need to win to stay in the playoff race. The Redskins snapped their four-game losing streak with their last game facing the Jacksonville Jaguars and the Titans won their 3rd in a row with a 17-0 shutout win over the New York Giants. Tennessee will get the win in this game, but it will be close and the Redskins will cover the spread getting 10 points.
Baltimore Ravens vs. L.A. Chargers (-4.5) O/U 44
The Ravens and Chargers are in the playoff hunt, but the hunt is over for the Chargers, who have, at least, a AFC Wild Card. They are tied with the Kansas City Chiefs atop the AFC West, but in this game face a Baltimore team that has the best overall defense in the NFL. Look for Phillip Rivers and L.A. to get things done at home, as the Chargers will win and cover.
Houston Texans vs. Philadelphia Eagles (-2.5) O/U 45.5
The Texans are holding onto the #2 seed in the AFC while the Eagles are hanging on to slim playoff hopes. Just like last season Nick Foles is back under center for Philly, but faces a legit Houston defense. The Eagles are the defending champions and they will stay in the playoff race with a win in this game where they will cover the spread.
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Miami Dolphins (-4) O/U 39
The Jags are coming off an unlucky loss while the Dolphins were throttled in their last game. Jacksonville has the defense, but their offense has been dormant and at home Miami will win and cover.
Cincinnati Bengals vs. Cleveland Browns (-8.5) O/U 44.5
The Bengals are reeling while the Browns have won two in a row and four of their last five games. One of those wins came against the Bengals in Cincinnati. The Bengals are down to their backup quarterback, but they are coming off a win. Still it was at home against the Raiders and on the road facing a hot Browns team Cleveland is the pick in this AFC North matchup to win and cover.
Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots (-13) O/U 44.5
The Bills are coming off a win and the Patriots are coming off a loss. New England will make the playoffs while Buffalo will not. The Pats will come out at home and lay a beat down on the Bills winning and covering the spread against them for the fifth straight time.
Atlanta Falcons vs. Carolina Panthers (-2.5) O/U 47
In the last few seasons this has been a game one with major playoff implications. Not this season with two of the more disappointing teams in the league. The Panthers lost to the New Orleans Saints 12-9 in their last game where they did have a pretty good game on defense. The same will happen in this game in their house, as Carolina will win and cover the spread.
Green Bay Packers vs. New York Jets (PICK) O/U 44
The Packers lost their last game and they are out of the playoff picture losing four of their last five games. The Jets are also out of the playoff race and they have lost seven of their last eight games. Aaron Rodgers will play in the last two games and for this one that is good enough for a win, as the Packers will get the win in this non-conference affair.

New York Giants vs. Indianapolis Colts (-9) O/U 46.5
The Giants were shut in their last game while the Colts are coming off a solid shutout win over the Dallas Cowboys. Indy is still in the playoff race and Andrew Luck and the offense will get it done winning at home and covering the big 9-point spread.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Dallas Cowboys (-7) O/U 46.5
The Cowboys are coming off a shutout loss to the Indianapolis Colts in their last game and they are still in command in the NFC East. They only need one more win and they will get it and cover in this game facing a Tampa Bay team that has lost two in a row and has a defense that ranks 28th in the league.
LA Rams (-13.5) vs. Arizona Cardinals O/U 45.5
The Rams are coming off a loss and many are questioning the play of Jaren Goff, who has struggled as of late. They have lost two in a row, but can you bet against them as the 2nd seed in the NFC that has 11 wins and beat the Cardinals 34-0 at home in their 2nd game of the season? Didn’t think so, as L.A., will snap their two-game skid and win and cover at home.
Chicago Bears (-4) vs. San Francisco 49ers O/U 43
The Bears have beaten the Packers and the Rams in their last two games, but while they have a great defense they face a 49ers team that is coming off a solid win over the Seattle Seahawks. Still, take the defense in this NFC matchup, as Chicago will win and cover the spread in the City by the Bay.
Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New Orleans Saints (-5.5) O/U 53.5
The Steelers snapped their three-game slide with a big-time 17-10 win over the New England Patriots in their last game. The Saints are in the top-spot in the NFC and will stay that way unless they lose and the Rams win their last two games. New Orleans has been getting it done as of late on defense and running the ball. Pittsburgh is desperate for a win and while they may not get it they will cover the spread in the Big Easy.
Kansas City Chiefs (-2.5) vs. Seattle Seahawks O/U 44
Both the Chiefs and Seahawks are coming off a loss and while the Chiefs are in the playoffs the Seahawks are not and need one more win. However, it will not come in this game, as the KC offense will light it up in what will be a high scoring barnburner, which the Chiefs will win and cover.
Denver Broncos (-2.5) vs. Oakland Raiders O/U 44
Both of these teams are out of the playoffs and each is coming off a loss. Earlier this season in Denver the Broncos beat the Raiders 20-19. Denver looks to, at least, get to 8-8 with a two-win finish and they will get halfway there with a win in this game out west where they will cover the spread.
