The Sunday Night Football contest between the Ravens and Jaguars is going to be one of the most interesting on the NFL Week 15 schedule. Two of the NFL's most exciting and young quarterbacks will face off against each other, so it's sure to be entertaining. Here are some great betting tips and NFL odds week 15 for what is surely an intriguing matchup.
Sunday Night Football Predictions
Ahead of the match, here at HowtoBet, we're gonna get straight into our picks and predictions for this week. Read on!
Washington Commanders at Los Angeles Rams
Moneyline: Commanders +240 / Rams -305
Spread: Rams -6.5
The NFL's poorest pass defense, which is currently held by the Washington Commanders (4-9), is undoubtedly going to be exposed and certainly exploited by Rams' QB, Matthew Stafford.
In this particular match, Commanders' QB, Sam Howell, will bear a large burden for his team and his skill to stay on track will determine how things end up. For the season, Howell has been decent and has passed a minimum of 290 yards in seven different matches.
Arguably one of the most significant factors in this contest is if Commanders can handle Aaron Donald, as it's not easy to bypass one of the most experienced defensive linesmen in the league. Howell might win this one if Donald doesn't play (listed as questionable) and Washington is rested after a bye, although the Rams (6-7) are still just too talented to lose this matchup. Pick the over in this match, as those are Sunday Night Football odds that are hard to beat.
San Francisco 49ers at Arizona Cardinals
Moneyline: 49ers -800 / Cardinals +550
Spread: 49ers -12.5
Since they are the top team in the NFL right now, the 49ers (10-3) have every opportunity to win this game with ease. Although it's worth pointing out that San Francisco's injury listing includes many defensive experts, which may alter the dynamic of this game in favor of Arizona (3-10).
After Kyler Murray's comeback from a tough injury, the Cardinals look solid and are recently 2-2 after a bye week. Thus far, Arizona has defeated both the Steelers and Cowboys by showing fight in the contests. The impressive offensive line of the Cardinals prevailed in both games and is the reason that they were able to come out with the conquest.
A 49ers victory is more likely here and choose the under, but Arizona has a small chance to win if they go all in on offense and QB Murray simply has ONE of those epic games. Still, it's a long shot and a safe bet is San Francisco.
Dallas Cowboys at Buffalo Bills
Moneyline: Cowboys +115 / Bills -135
Spread: Bills -2.0
The Sunday Night Football odds continue in this major league battle involving two squads at the heights of their powers. The Cowboys (10-3) are currently scoring the most points-per-game in the NFL and are only giving up the fourth-fewest points overall. Conversely, the Bills allow the sixth-fewest PPG while ranking 5th in the NFL in terms of scoring the football.
For Buffalo (7-6) to have any kind of chance at reaching the playoffs, they must continue to put their foot down and win every game they can. After defeating Kansas City in the previous game, the Bills face yet one more difficult opponent in the form of the Cowboys. Let's not forget that Dallas crushed the Eagles during prime time TV last Sunday.
This places the Cowboys versus a hungry Bills team that will do everything to win, which is no fun to face. The Bills appear good at home and have an in-form QB with Josh Allen never looking better, not to mention his epic 35 touchdowns this season. Go with the Bills tonight and pick the over.
Baltimore Ravens at Jacksonville Jaguars
Moneyline: Ravens -170 / Jaguars +143
Spread: Ravens -3.0 |
The previous week, Ravens' QB Lamar Jackson faced the Rams' lowly pass defense in a pivotal contest. This week, he should have one more major game against the Jaguars' iffy pass defense, as this is the same team that gave up over 300 passing yards in the previous two weeks.
The Ravens don't allow many points per game (second-fewest in the NFL), and it's bad news that Jaguars' QB, Trevor Lawrence, is still suffering an ankle sprain that made him throw three interceptions versus Cleveland.
Jacksonville (8-5) is not going to be a pushover and it'll be a low-scoring game, but the Ravens (10-3) just look too dominant now to be beaten in this particular matchup, especially by outscoring their opponents by 11 points. Pick Ravens to win and choose the under.
SNF Odds Week 15: Player Prop Bets
These are a few player prop bets in addition to the best SNF bets this week.
Odell Beckham Jr. (Ravens) Over 37.5 receiving yards (-110)
Baltimore leads the league in rushing yards per game (157.1), while Lamar Jackson is continuing to make strides for his team. He's a fantastic passer and this is only going to help Beckham Jr. to thrive in his role as a wide receiver here.
During the past five games, Beckham's target percentage is rising quickly this season and three recent touchdowns, not to mention 68.6 receiving yards, is helping him and the Ravens to bigger heights. He's only going to get better in this matchup and this bet looks fantastic.
James Cook (Bills) anytime touchdown scorer (+180)
Bill’s running back James Cook has been getting better and more confident now that Joe Brady is the offensive coordinator of the team. Cook is going to find the end zone far easier with Brady’s help and Josh Allen leading the team on the field with his great quarterback skills. Cook is getting a lot of touches (at least 20 per game) in his last three efforts and the Cowboys’ solid defense means that there is a chance to pick up on offensive mistakes that lead to touchdowns.
