NFL Week 15 Picks: Three Bets You Should Make Right Now

The NFL season has been great to us lately, and a large reason is beating these lines early in the week! I found a few games I want to lock in early for this week's colossal slate that includes Saturday night football!

Colts vs. Patriots Prediction

The first game I'm locking in early and beating the line on will be an affair between the New England Patriots and the Indianapolis Colts from Lucas Oil Stadium under the lights on Saturday Night Football.

I want to start this article off by saying the public will get destroyed this week after a record-setting week last week, so the goal will be to fade the public in most of these games! I am kicking it off with backing the Indianapolis Colts at home at a minus-two line.

The Colts have been playing some of the best football in the league the last six weeks, led by one of the best rushing attacks and headlined by bruising back Johnathan Taylor. The Colts defense has stepped up of late for them as well, and they will have their hands full this week with the hottest team in the league, led by rookie signal-caller Mac Jones.

Jones is still yet to lose a road start in the National Football League, until this week. I believe the Colts' defense will limit the Patriot's run game and be able to beat them with their own running game, opening up play-action for Carson Wentz. The Colts rank second in all of the NFL in the run game so look for them to use this early and often and have a well-prepared game plan to mix in the pass.

  • PICK: Colts -2 -110

Panthers vs. Bills Prediction

The next play I am going with is to beat the line on a matchup between the Carolina Panthers and the Buffalo Bills. The Panthers are coming off a big home loss to their division rival, the Atlanta Falcons, while the Bills are coming off a heartbreaking overtime loss in Tampa Bay.

This is a significant game for the Bills this weekend as they look to keep their playoff hopes alive and perhaps get a shot back at the division with a win and a Patriot loss.

The Panthers seem to be a team lost and without identity, losing star running back Christian Mccaffrey, among other significant players, this season. The play I am going with is the Bills first half. They'll be fired up and shoot out of the gates early and cover this first half-line with ease. Josh Allen will pick apart this depleted secondary, and the Bills' defense will limit the scoring by Cam Newton and the Panthers.

Panthers vs. Bills Picks

  • PICK: Buffalo Bills 1H -6.5 -110

Vikings vs. Bears Prediction

The final line we will beat and cash in on is a battle concerning the Minnesota Vikings and the Chicago Bears.

We are going to the Windy City for this NFC North battle, and we are backing the dog in the Chicago Bears. This is a scary play anytime you bet on a Matt Nagy-led group. However, this is an excellent fade of the Vikings, who love to play games close.

The Vikings had a nearly thirty-point lead against the Steelers last week, and the game came down to the final play. I believe the Vikings' defense will give up points in this game, and the Bears' defense will do enough to stay close. I will gladly back the dog who may win this thing outright and shock the Vikings.

Vikings vs. Bears Pick

  • PICK: Bears +3.5 -110
