Only three weeks remain in the NFL season and we head into week 15 this week with more critical matchups on the card. Last night, the Eagles hung on to their playoff lives with a 23-17 overtime win at home against the Giants. So far this season, I am 78-69-2 on the NFL betting season. Every day on CA Betting News, I will give you the plays and props for the NFL week’s action. Here are my first plays for week 15 using the latest odds from FanDuel Sportsbook and DraftKing Sportsbook.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers -4 @ Detroit Lions
FanDuel Sportsbook Odds: TB -4
DraftKings Sportsbook Odds: TB -4
I expect this spread to inch up a little bit throughout the week, assuming Matthew Stafford remains out this weekend. The Buccaneers come in winners of three straight and have a lot of momentum coming into this weekend. Not only that, they have excelled on the road, winning road games in Los Angeles, Atlanta, Carolina, and Jacksonville this season. The key matchup in this game is the Bucs passing attack the 30th ranked Lions pass defense. Jameis Winston should be able to have a lot of success throwing the ball on this Lions team. The Bucs pass defense, while still showing holes, has improved a lot over the last three games and should be able to shut down David Blough. These are two teams headed in completely different directions. I like the Bucs here to win big in Detroit.
Prediction: Bucs 33, Lions 20
Jacksonville Jaguars @ Oakland Raiders OVER 25.5 TT
FanDuel Sportsbook Odds: Oak OVER 25.5 TT
DraftKings Sportsbook Odds: Oak OVER 25.5 TT
The Jaguars defense has completely melted down over the last five games. In that span, the Jaguars have given up 35 points per game. The Raiders defense also has its problems, but their offense can score, and this game being at home, they should be able to put up points on this 23rd ranked Jaguars defense. The Raiders offense should still thrive even without Josh Jacobs in the lineup on Sunday. Look for a lot of points in this game, especially from the Raiders. They’ve averaged over 22 points in their last five home games and now get to pile on a weak Jaguars defense.
Prediction: Raiders 34, Jaguars 23
