Early Trending Odds NFL Week 15

NY Jets at Baltimore 14.5
at 8:20 PM ET
TV: NFLN

The Ravens had a huge fight on their hands before prevailing against Buffalo 24-17 on Sunday. While I still love the potential of young Jets quarterback Sam Darnold, New York has nothing left to play for at this point while Baltimore is looking to take another step toward locking down the No. 1 overall seed in the AFC playoffs. Baltimore dominates from start to finish in Week 15.

Seattle -5 at Carolina
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

The Seahawks were still on the gridiron against the Rams at the time of this writing, but Seattle looks like the easy pick to get it done in week 15 despite being on the road. Ron Rivera is gone, Cam Newton is next out the door and the honeymoon for quarterback Kyle Allen is apparently over. Russell Wilson will make a final push for MVP and the Panthers are not in a position to slow him down.

Houston at Tennessee -3
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS

The Texans missed out on a great chance to remain in first place in the AFC South by getting spanked by lowly Denver 38-24 on Sunday. Tennessee put the pedal to the metal in the second half of their 42-21 smackdown win over Oakland to improve to 4-0 over their last four games and 6-1 over their last seven since veteran Ryan Tannehill took over for former starter Marcus Mariota. All sings are pointing to a solid win for Tennessee in this contest against a Texans team that just can’t find the consistency they’ve been looking for this season.

Denver at Kansas City -11.5
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

The Broncos played their best game of the season in upsetting playoff-hopeful Houston 38-24 on Sunday as quarterback Drew Lock put his name into the ring to be the broncos’ latest long-term answer at quarterback. Still, Denver is going to have a much tougher time beating the explosive Chiefs than they did in getting past the dysfunctional Texans. Kansas City is playing its best football of the season right now and that isn’t very encouraging for the broncos heading into this Week 15 AFC West matchup.

Chicago at Green Bay -5
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

Prior to their eye-opening 31-24 win over Dallas on Thursday night, Chicago looked mostly like a a team that was rock-solid on defense, but mediocre at best offensively. After watching embattled quarterback Mitch Trubisky respond with one of his best games as a pro, I’m expecting Chicago to give Aaron Rodgers and the Packers a difficult way to go in Week 15. Maybe it’s me, but I believe this NFC North divisional matchup has the look of a classic field goal finish waiting to happen.

New England -10 at Cincinnati
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS

Yes, it’s true, the Patriots don’t have the look of a team that is going to defend its Super Bowl title after dropping their second straight game while having their 21-game home winning streak snapped in Sunday’s 23-16 loss to Kansas City. Still, I’m expecting Tom Brady and company to take out all of their ample frustration on a rebuilding Cincinnati team that is locked into position to grab the No. 1 overall pick in next year’s NFL draft. If this game isn’t over by halftime, I’ll be shocked!

Cleveland -2 at Arizona
at 4:05 PM ET
TV: CBS

The Browns might have gotten past the lowly, one-win Bengals 27-19 on Sunday, but Baker Mayfield and company definitely didn’t look very good in doing so. While Arizona was on the wrong end of a narrow 23-17 loss against Pittsburgh this past weekend, Kyler Murray and company continued their season-long trend of never giving up by scoring all of their points in a furious fourth-quarter comeback that came up just short. Just based on overall effort this season, Arizona looks more than capable of taking care of business in Week 15.

LA Rams at Dallas -3
at 4:25 PM ET
TV: FOX

The Rams were still in the midst of their Sunday night matchup against Seattle at the time of this writing, but no matter how Los Angeles finishes up against Russell Wilson and company, they are definitely looking good as they head to the Lone Star State for their Week 15 matchup. Dallas has dropped three straight while getting completely man-handled by New England, Buffalo and a Chicago Bears team that had struggled to put points on the board all season until topping the 30-point plateau against the Cowboys on Thursday. Jerry Jones is going to be disappointed again versus last year’s Super Bowl runner-up.

Buffalo at Pittsburgh -1.5
at 8:20 PM ET
TV: NBC

After nearly upsetting red-hot Baltimore in their narrow, 24-17 loss on Sunday, the Bills have the look of a team that no one is going to want to face come playoff time. Pittsburgh managed to get past Arizona 23-17 in Week 14 and head coach Mike Tomlin should win the Coach of the Year award for the outstanding job he’s done this season. Still, I’m thinking Devlin Hodges is going to be forced into at least one very costly turnover in this matchup of playoff hopefuls, if not two.

Indianapolis at New Orleans -8.5
at 8:15 PM ET
TV: ESPN

The Colts blew a golden opportunity to keep their slim postseason hopes alive by getting bum-rushed by Jameis Winston and the Buccaneers in Sunday’s 38-35 inter-conference loss. Indy got outscored 10- in the fourth quarter and failed to get the win despite picking off Winston three times. Clearly, this doesn’t bode well with drew Brees and the Super Bowl-hopeful Saints suffering a heartbreaking loss against the 49ers this past weekend.
