NFL Week 15 look ahead lines

NFL Week 15 look-ahead lines are out. The Buffalo Bills once again take center stage in arguably the game of the week. They close out a three-week stretch of divisional games with a chance to take a hammerlock on the AFC East by beating the Dolphins at home. A loss, on the other hand, would leave the Dolphins in stellar position by securing a season sweep of the favorites.

Every week, usually on Friday, TheLines will post look-ahead lines from FanDuel Sportsbook and DraftKings Sportsbook. These look aheads give an early snapshot of the current market opinions of teams absent the week-to-week bias that can take hold following weekend results.

Week 15 NFL Primetime Games

Thursday Night Football Odds

Perhaps the most interesting line to track for Week 15 simply due to the potential volatility involved with starting a seventh-round rookie at QB. At least in many cases where a backup is entering, we have some NFL track record to work with. But in the case of Brock Purdy and the 49ers, he threw his first meaningful NFL passes just last week against the Dolphins. Purdy has a tough matchup with the Buccaneers‘ top-10 defense this week. If he falls flat on his face, we may see this line flip to the Seahawks being favored, even pushing as high as -2.5.

Saturday Night Football Odds

The market still has quite a bit of respect for Buffalo, as one can see in both the Week 14 and Week 15 markets. But, since Josh Allen hurt his elbow, the Bills have gone 2-3 ATS with two outright losses as sizable favorites and another nail-biting win against the Lions. The fact is, they’ve underperformed. If that continue this week against tough Jets defense, we could see the market adjust against a Dolphins team that performed well against him last time. Granted, the Dolphins certainly caught some breaks in that 21-9 September win. The Bills outgained them by almost 300 yards. But, the Bills looked in peak form heading into that one. This version looks less potent. Grabbing +7 on Miami might be wise.

Sunday Night Football Odds

These teams played to a 20-20 draw in Week 13, but the Commanders gain a distinct edge in this one. Not only do they get to play at home this time, but they play two straight games against the Giants with a bye in between. That means they get essentially three weeks of prep for this game. However, health in the offensive line and secondary should only continue bolstering the Giants as they try to recover from a mid-season swoon. They do face the Eagles at home this week, so an upset win could tick this down to Commanders -3, especially given the Giants probably outplayed them in Week 13.

Monday Night Football Odds

Few matchups lined up in the preseason have lost more appeal than this one. What once looked like a battle of inner-circle Super Bowl contenders will now match the wreckage of a lost Rams season with the likely death throes of the 2022 Packers. Only the Rams can move this market given that the Packers are on bye, and move it they just might. Could Week 14 on Thursday Night Football be the beginning of a Baker Mayfield redemption tour? If so, Packers -7 wouldn’t be out of the realm of possibility. Given how large a favorite Green Bay already is, the line doesn’t seem likely to move toward them.

Bengals At Buccaneers

Seemingly each week, there’s about when the talented Buccaneers roster will find themselves. Instead, they have little urgency as the rest of the division collapses around them. Meanwhile, the Bengals keep ascending, winning four straight and covering each time since they got routed by the Browns in Cleveland. The market is already pushing toward Bengals -3, so it wouldn’t take much to get it there. Given the mostly dead numbers on the other side, there’s some incentive to take them if that’s the side you’re liking here.

HOW TO USE NFL LOOK-AHEAD LINES

The look-ahead lines allow you a sneak peek at the projected lines for the following week’s games. This information from a leading online sportsbook will help provide lessons in understanding lines and projections before the current week’s games are played.

Many bettors tend to overreact to the previous week’s scores and results. The NFL Week 15 look-ahead lines provide a sense of stability from the oddsmaker. They sometimes offer a clear, unbiased snapshot of perceived team strength.

Bettors can also gain an edge or find value in the lines once the weekend results take hold. See if you can find any over- or under-reactions by the market.

Of course, always take note of key injuries, travel and scheduling situations, and NFL power rankings. Making adjustments is part of the process, along with accounting for teams’ strengths, weaknesses, against-the-spread angles and personnel matchups.
