NFL Week 15 Betting Guide: Spread, moneyline, over/under picks


first_imgWeek 15 is shaping up to be one of the most intriguing betting slates of the NFL season. There are seven spreads between one and four points and five of nine and higher, which makes finding edges necessary. Fortunately, BetQL can help in that area. Our subscribers can view BetQL’s NFL best bets and make the most informed, data-driven wagers possible. Let’s get into some of the Sunday slate’s top options. WEEK 15 NON-PPR RANKINGS: Quarterback | Running back | Wide receiver | Tight end | D/ST | KickerAll data presented is as of Wednesday morning. You can track all NFL line movement on BetQL’s Line Movement Dashboard. Figures below calculated by wagering one unit on each touted bet with -110 spread odds.NFL Week 15 Betting Picks: Spread pick of the weekRams (-1) at Cowboys As seen on BetQL’s Line Movement Dashboard, the Cowboys opened as 3.5-point home favorites, but the action on one side of the line has swung it so that the visiting Rams are now one-point favorites. As identified on BetQL’s Sharp Picks Dashboard, an incredible 72 percent of public bets have gone on the Rams ATS while 95 percent of the money also has. Following an impressive 28-12 victory over the Seahawks in Week 14, the Rams are 8-5 and on the outside looking in of the current NFC playoff picture, which naturally creates some urgency and a must-win mantra. Although the Cowboys are 6-7 and own the tiebreaker over the Eagles in the NFC East, they’re in bad form, having lost three-consecutive games straight-up (and four out of five). Dallas has gone 2-3 ATS in their past five games and is seemingly in the midst of a freefall. Meanwhile, the Rams have won and covered three of their past four games and are getting hot at the right time. It’s really tough to trust the Cowboys right now. MORE WEEK 15: Sleepers | Busts | Start ’em, sit ’emSeahawks (-260) at Panthers The Panthers have lost five straight games and just gave up 40 points in a loss to the Falcons. Oh, and they’re 2-4 at home. Meanwhile, the Seahawks have gone 6-1 on the road (one of six teams to have just one road loss) and have exceeded expectations, going 10-3 overall. While losing Rashaad Penny (knee) for the year hurts their offense slightly, it’s difficult to imagine Russell Wilson and company not taking care of business in this contest, which makes the Seahawks our moneyline pick of the week. MORE WEEK 15: Sleepers | Busts | Start ’em, sit ’emNFL Week 15 Betting Picks: Over/under pick of the weekOVER 47.5 Buccaneers at Lions Jameis Winston is going to lead the league in passing yards and interceptions, isn’t he? Due to his recklessness and the Tampa Bay coaching staff’s puzzling gameplanning this season, the OVER has gone 10-3 in Buccaneers games this season, including in 10 of their past 11. Further, the OVER has gone 8-5 in Lions games. The public and sharp bettors are hammering the OVER. Per BetQL’s Public Betting Dashboard, 62 percent of the total bets and 87 percent of the total money has been wagered on the OVER!You can find all of BetQL’s NFL over/under picks on their Totals spread dashboard.last_img read more
