NFL Week 15 Betting Tips
Los Angeles Chargers at Las Vegas Raiders
Friday 12.20pm (AEDT)
The Kansas City Chiefs have an absolute stranglehold on the AFC West with a 12-1 record so far, which means the Friday afternoon clash between the Raiders and Chargers doesn’t have a lot riding on it. The Raiders re 7-6 and while they sit second int he division, they are two games outside of the wild card race, meaning they’ll need something miraculous to happen to force their way into the playoffs.
It’s been a season to forget for the Chargers so far. They are coming off a win against the Falcons in Week 14, but they are just 4-9 on the season so far and sit on the bottom of the AFC West table. They will be on the road on Friday, where they are just 1-5 straight up on the season and 3-3 against the spread.
Both the Chargers and Raiders have been involved in some high scoring games so far this season. LA are 9-3-1 this season in favour of the over while on the road, the Chargers over has hit in four out of six games. The Raiders and Colts combined for 71 points last week and we expect this one to be another high scoring affair.
Carolina Panthers at Green Bay Packers
Sunday 12.15pm (AEDT)
Sunday football is back in Week 15! Aussie fans will be treated to an interesting clash between the Panthers and Packers on Sunday afternoon this week as Green Bay look to put a bow on the NFC North division.They have a 10-3 record and have won their last three games in a row. They have an 8-5 record against the spread this season, and 4-2 at home.
The Panthers are 4-9 on the season and will be riding out the year with some tough games against the Packers, Washington and Saints. They are 7-6 ATS on the season so far, but their record against the spread, on the road has been telling at 5-1. They often come up as heavy road underdogs, and will again on Sunday, starting with a 8.5 point spread.
Like the look of the Panthers here on the back of that stat. They have covered on the road against some really good sides in the likes of the Saints, Chiefs and Vikings and get another chance to prove their worth against one of the top teams in the NFL on Sunday. Back them to cover the lofty spread.
Kansas City Chiefs at New Orleans Saints
Monday 8.25am (AEDT)
The game of the week sees the Kansas City Chiefs going up against the New Orleans Saints on Monday morning. After the Steelers lost their 2nd straight game on the weekend, the Chiefs now have the best record in the NFL at 12-1.
The Saints are just a few games behind at 10-3 and top the NFC South division with a few games to go. They still have plenty to play for as they fight with the Packers, Rams and Seahawks for the top seed in the conference. Saints games have hit the over in 8/13 this season and at home, that number is 4-2.
This one has the makings of a shootout as two of the highest scoring offences in the league square off. The line sits at 50.5 points for this match, a line that has been cleared in four of the last five Chiefs games. Back the over.
