Week 15 Betting Preview

As we are coming to an end of a strange but fascinating regular season lets all just be thankful we had football at all this year.  I know I get lost in my football bubble.  Worrying about multiple fantasy leagues, praying the Bears can find a QB, and looking for my next betting payout but to put things in perspective COVID-19 has been devastating for America and the world.  My heart truly goes out to all that have suffered from this horrible virus and what millions of people are going through puts my small football universe in perspective.  But hey, if football is gonna be played, then we all have money we need to get PAID!  Here’s my 2 getting you ready to partake in some holiday winnings in my Week 15 betting preview.  Good luck, God Bless and I wish you all a Merry Christmas, Happy New Year, and a visit to your bookie’s pay table.  Let’s get it.

 

Buffalo Bills at Denver Broncos – Spread Bills -5.5

 

The Broncos come in as a middling team and the Bills are the exact opposite.  Winners of 3 in a row and looking dominate on Sunday Night football the Bills are riding high.  In fact their last loss was in week 10 on a Kyler Murray/Deandre Hopkins hail mary.  The bills also have one of the largest cover percentages on the season at 8-5 against the spread (ATS) which is currently the 3rd best cover percentage of all teams (61.5%).

I love the Bills in this one.  The Broncos are talented and I believe they are coached better than people give them credit for but they like many teams are plagued at the QB position and have been decimated by injuries this year.  The NFL is a one score league and there is a chance coming off an emotional victory the Bills fall flat in Mile High City but I think the running game rolls for Buffalo, their improving defense stops Drew Lock and his chucking routine and the Bills win fairly handily.

Final Score: Bills 30 – Broncos 17 – Bills Cover

Buffalo Bills vs Denver Broncos Week 15

Houston Texans at the Indianapolis Colts – Spread Colts – 7

The Texans are reeling and the Colts are hitting stride at the exact right time.  The Colts have been winners of the last 4 out of 5 and are tied with Buffalo with a 61.5% cover rate on the year.

The Texans on the other hand have let DeShaun Watson down.  Losers of 3 of the last 5 and Watson seemingly losing a weapon every week on top of losing the ultimate weapon in DeAndre Hopkins to start the year, doesn’t bode well for the Horns this week.  Watson has attempted to carry this team but they are a defunct organization right now with no GM, no head coach, and one of the worst defenses in the NFL.  I believe the Colts cover by two scores in the game and like the Texans to continue their slide toward the offseason.  The Texans are 4-9 against the spread and one of the worst cover teams in the NFL at just 30.8%.

The Colts run game is working, while nothing is working for the Texans.  The Colts can score either through the air or on the ground and lucky for them the Texans defense is terrible against both the run game and the pass game.  I like the Colts to score a lot of points in this game at home and the Texans hang for a while but get blown by going away.

Final Score: Colts 38 – Texans 24

Alright, Alright, Alright good people.  Best of luck, hit that window where you can, and be safe.  Here is to a very Merry Christmas and a happy, HEALTHY, New Year!
