NFL–Week 15 Picks

by - December 17, 2010 - - Comment Now »

I’m hitting around .500 recently. I would’ve taken the Chargers yesterday but I didn’t penalize myself for the Colts last week so I won’t reward myself retroactively this week (8-7 last week; 103-93-5 on the season)…

Arizona (+2.5) over Carolina: They’re both terrible so I’ll take the team receiving points.

Buffalo (+5.5) over Miami: Chad Henne is simply not good.

Cleveland (+1) over Cincinnati: Colt McCoy is better than Carson Palmer already.

Detroit (+6) over Tampa: The Lions pass rush is actually kind of good.

Houston (+1) over Tennessee: The Titans never win when Vince Young doesn’t play (1-10 over the last two seasons).

Jacksonville (+4.5) over Indianapolis: The Jaguars have matched up well with the Colts over the last several years and they might be the better team this year.

Kansas City (Closed) over St. Louis: The line is down because of Matt Cassel’s status. If Cassel plays, I’ll take the Chiefs wherever they set it.

New Orleans (+1) over Baltimore: The Ravens are overrated and the Saints are flying under the radar.

Philadelphia (+3) over New York Giants: Eli Manning is turning the ball over too much. That’ll cost them against Philly. To me, these are the two best teams in the NFC.

Dallas (-6.5) over Washington: The Redskins are a mess. At least the Cowboys are a mess with a newspaper on top of it.

Atlanta (-7) over Seattle: I hate the NFC West.

Oakland (-7) over Denver: The Broncos just got crushed by the Cardinals.

Pittsburgh (-6) over New York Jets: The Steelers D vs. the Jets O is a huge mismatch. (I just heard Troy Polamalu will likely miss the game. I might change my pick before Sunday.)

New England (Closed) over Green Bay: I’ll take the Pats wherever they set it. They are destroying fools.

Chicago (Closed) over Minnesota: Same deal without the destroying fools part.
