Week 15 betting breakdown

Chargers at Chiefs (-3): Both teams can clinch something with a win. The Chiefs, the only team guaranteed an AFC playoff spot as of now, will take the division with a victory. LA will lock up at least a wild card berth. Currently, the Chiefs are on a nine-game winning streak against the Chargers, the longest in the rivalry’s history.

Texans (-6.5) at Jets: Yep, it’s that time of year. When the NFL gets to take over another weekend day and give fans reasons to shirk responsibilities and watch games. After whiffing on the chance to clinch the AFC South last week, Houston needs this win and a Colts loss to shore up the division crown. They enter having won the last two against the Jets, who are still technically alive for a playoff spot.

Browns at Broncos (-3.5): Both teams are still in the playoff hunt (barely) so this becomes an eliminator game. The Broncos have won every meeting since Cleveland returned to play in ‘99. But this is a new Cleveland team that has won three of five games since Gregg Williams took over for Hue Jackson.

Raiders at Bengals (-3): Despite the late upset of the Steelers in Week 14, Oakland is out of the hunt, while losing Andy Dalton has all but sealed Cincy’s fate. The Bengals have won three of the last four against the Raiders.

Titans at Giants (-2.5): Considerable regional bias, given the Titans are part of the four-team pack chasing the last AFC Wild Card spot and the Giants are, well, chasing ghosts. Tennessee has won four of the last five meetings, including the last two in North Jersey.

Buccaneers at Ravens (-8): The Ravens still hold the final wild card spot in the AFC, tenuously, while the Bucs tenuously hold on to hope. Baltimore has won the last three over Tampa.

Lions at Bills (-2.5): The Bills’ late loss to the Jets eliminated them, while the Lions are close to the chopping block as well. Matthew Stafford enters 0-2 against Buffalo and 3-7 against the AFC East in his career.

Cowboys at Colts (-3): Recency bias doesn’t work for Dallas, which can clinch the NFC East with a win or Philly and Washington loss. The Colts need to win to stay in the AFC Wild Card hunt. Dallas has won the last three meetings.

Redskins at Jaguars (-7): Yep, this is a 36 total for an NFL game in the same season two teams covered 63 and then some. The Redskins, who needs this to maintain any wild card viability, have won the last three meetings. No idea who will start under center as of Monday.

Dolphins at Vikings (-8): Both teams will need wins to stay alive in wild card hunts. Not a lot of books had this on their boards Monday ahead of the MNF game between Minnesota and Seattle. Miami has won the last three in this series.

Packers at Bears: No prices on this game as of Monday morning. Chicago can clinch the division with a win if Minnesota loses Monday night at Seattle or against Miami in Week 15. Green Bay has won nine of the last 10 in this rivalry.

Cardinals at Falcons (-8.5): Atlanta has won the last eight at home against Arizona, going back to 1994. No variation in pricing at the NJ sportsbooks to open the week.

Seahawks (-5.5) at 49ers: Look for more prices and perhaps a jump in the spread based on Monday night’s result. Seattle looks to make it 10 in a row against their division rivals.

Patriots at Steelers: No prices were set for this game on Monday as we await an update on Steelers QB Ben Roethlisberger. Pittsburgh blew a big chance to inch closer to a higher seed in Week 14, as did New England. The Pats have won the last four regular season meetings.

Eagles at Rams: A lot of the sizzle in this big rematch was lost when the Eagles lost in Dallas. Philly can still make a wild card berth if they win out and get help, while LA has clinched the NFC West but still wants homefield advantage throughout the playoffs. The Eagles have won the last five meetings, dating back to 2005.

Saints (-6.5) at Panthers: The Saints have wrapped up the NFC South and can win out to clinch homefield advantage. Carolina needs a win to stay in the Wild Card hunt. The division rivals have split the last six regular season games at the Superdome, with New Orleans winning the last two and the Wild Card round game last year.
