2017 NFL: Week 15 Preview & Betting Tips

December 13th 2017, 5:22pm, By: andyrosos

Tough weekend in our NFL betting tips as we went 1-3 in Week 14. We’ll look to improve on that as we head into the last few round of the season and offer our NFL Week 15 betting tips below.

NFL Week 15 Betting Tips

Denver Broncos at Indianapolis Colts (Friday 12.25pm AEDT)

Week 15 action kicks off Friday afternoon as the Colts host the Broncos. Not the prettiest of matchup, nor one that offers any playoff connotations, however, there is some value there as the Broncos looked to have regained some form on the weekend.

After losing eight games in a row, the Broncos bounced back on the weekend to record a shutout 23-0 win against the Jets in Denver. They’ll be on the road for this matchup but will start as $1.70 favourites against the Colts, who have just a 3-10 record on the season so far.

The Denver defence resembled what it once was on the weekend, keeping the Jets to a ridiculous 60 yards through the air and just 100 total yards. The colts are in the bottom four teams in the league in points per game and rushing yards per game so we think they will struggle to get much going here.

Los Angeles Chargers at Kansas City Chiefs (Sunday 12.25pm AEDT)

Great AFC matchup here as the Chiefs host the Chargers in a special Sunday game. The two teams are still in a fight for a playoff spot in the AFC, both holding a 7-6 record through 13 games. The Chiefs got back on the winners list on the weekend with a 11-point home win over the Raiders. Kareem Hunt returned to form with a big performance, rushing for 116 yards with one TD.

The Chargers also secured a great win in Week 14, downing the Redskins 30-13 for their fourth win on the trot. Philip Rivers had a monster day, passing for 319 yards and 2 TDs. The return to form of Kareem Hunt is daunting for the Chargers, who allow the 4th most rushing yards per game in the league at 124.8.

This matchup should be a really close one. The Chiefs offence has started to click and the home field advantage should be massive here as they can all but cement a playoffs spot with a win. We are backing Alex Smith and co. to get the job done here.

TIP: Kansas City to win - $2.01 at Sportsbet

 

Los Angeles Rams at Seattle Seahawks (Monday 8.05am AEDT)

The game of the week sees the Seahawks hosting the Rams in Seattle on Monday morning. The Rams suffered a tough loss to the Eagles on the weekend, going down by eight points at home as they allowed a whopping 43 points. They’ll need to be better on defence this week if they are to stop Russel Wilson and the Seahawks, who have put up an average of 25 points per game in their last five.

While putting up 24 points, the Seahawks weren’t able to overcome the the Jaguars on the weekend, going down by six points as Leonard Fournette had a big performance along the ground.

The Seahawks gave up 30 points on the weekend but their defence has been pretty impressive throughout the season. They allow just 19 points per game and are in the top half of the league for rushing and passing yards allowed. They showed their amazing fortitude at home as they downed the Eagles in Seattle last weekend, we like them to come away with another win here.

TIP: Seattle to win - $1.82 at Ladbrokes

New England Patriots at Pittsburgh Steelers (Monday 8.25am AEDT)

Monster matchup here that will likely determine the top spot in the AFC and who holds home field advantage through the playoffs as the 1st and 2nd seed go toe to toe. The Steelers will be fired up after a last minute victory over the Ravens on the weekend while the Patriots will be looking to bounce back after an upset loss to the Dolphins in Miami.

The Pats went into the game as 11 point favourites over the Dolphins, but failed to convert a third down all day as they lost 27-20 to slide one game behind the Steelers. Tom Brady and the Patriots offence have been the most efficient third down team in the league over the past two seasons and their woes on the weekend meant that they spent just 23 minutes on the field compared to 36 for the Dolphins.

It could also be a matchup that decides the season MVP honours, with Brady and Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown currently the front runners after the Carson Wentz injury. Really tough game to pick here, the Patriots start as slight favourites given their great record over the Steelers in recent times. They might be away from home, but rarely does a Bill Belichick led team lose two games in a row and the preparation for this game would have started weeks ago. We like them to win this one.

TIP: New England to win - $1.71 at Sportsbet
