NFL Week 15 Picks
The NFL has just 3 regular season games to go and we have just witness a class Thursday night game to wrap up that night of football as the Broncos fell to a well drilled Chargers who turned up the heat and struck gold. So lets see what I have to offer in my NFL Week 15 picks.
In the 6pm it takes my eye that the Patriots are slight outsiders heading to Miami. New England have made an awful habit of starting their games slowly but they keep digging it out they are most certainly a team to back to come from behind and even last week I tipped up the ht/ft reversal for the Patriots and it just about paid off and at odds of 8/1 it was a nice one to land and the third time in a row it has happened for the Patriots.
I am expecting a huge night from Verneen who will become a back field receiver and take a lot of the short pass plays that Gronk would have. Miami/NE HT/FT can be backed at 17/2 this week. Also Watch out for Clay for the Dolphins they seemed to have figured out how useful he can be last week and a repeat should not be a shock less than 50 yards would be a poor use of his talents.
The Eagles travel to the cool Indoors of the Vikings and have a prime chance of a win been offered up. Adrian Peterson is out and while that might not have hurt so much with Gehart as back up he is also reported as out of this game. Its a pity for Gehart someone I consider to be a top quality back up who isn’t used as much as he deserves. Expect more running from Le Sean McCoy who will want distance himself from AP in the top rusher standings as he is having a career season under Chip Kelly. Expect the Eagles defence to catch the Vikings out with some interesting tactics.
The Chiefs put the Redskins to the Sword last week and now they face the Raiders. The Chiefs defence is getting back to were it was and Smith has seen his confidence boosted of late we could well see them trouble the Raiders who have two knocked up running backs and Recce is good but limited in what he can do. Charles continues to impress as a runner his line creates great openings full expect a big night from him anything less than a 100 yards will be a let down. So I do feel strongly for the Chiefs as a bets in my NFL Week 15 Picks.
I haven’t spotted anything for the 9pm game on Sky but the Cardinals take my eye against the Titans. The Titans lost to the Colts as Fitzpatrick showed the limitations of his game in failing to get them over the line. The Cardinals are pretty similar to the Titans, the running game has improve and both have solid defences some times let down by a suspect offensive line.
That was my NFL Week 15 Picks
