So apparently the Bills are not mathematically eliminated from the playoffs. However, it would take a Christmas miracle for them to get it. Therefore, the only thing we have left to root for is our wallets! Let's turn our attention to picking some winners with just a few weeks left, shall we? Last week's recap:
SD@PIT-8 PIT-8: (L) San Diego? Really? If I bet 'em they don't cover. If I bet against 'em they look like Super Bowl contenders.
CHI@MIN+3 CHI-3: (L) Boo.
STL@BUF O/U 42.5 OVER 42.5: (L) There will be no discussion.
DAL@CIN-3 DAL+3: (W) Dallas did as expected...come out and pull an upset when it means nothing.
MIA@SF-10 MIA+10: (L) It was looking so good most of the game!
So a ridiculous 1-4-0 last week. This is gonna take a hit to the season record (now at: 42-36-2). Let's regain some credibility this week with some wins...
Week 15 Lines:
CIN@PHI+4.5 O/U 45
GB@CHI+3 O/U 43
NYG@ATL-1.5 O/U 51
MIN@STL-2.5 O/U 38.5
WAS@CLE no lines available
JAX@MIA-7 O/U 37
DEN@BAL+3 O/U 48
IND@HOU-8.5 O/U 48
CAR@SD-3 O/U 45
SEA@BUF+5.5 O/U 43
DET@ARI+6.5 O/U 43.5
PIT@DAL+2 O/U 44
KC@OAK-3 O/U 44
SF@NE-5.5 O/U 46
NYJ@TEN-1.5 O/U 41.5
My Week 15 Picks:
CIN-4.5**: Cinci will continue to push for the playoffs with Pittsburgh sliding. Look for a double digit win by the Bungles tonight!
GB-3**: Green Bay goes into Soldier Field and Shows the Bears why they are not the division leader yet!
MIA-7***: Jacksonville is a mess and Chad Henne's return to Miami will be no happy homecoming.
DEN-3*: Denver has a chance to get into the 1st or 2nd seed with a win and perhaps get one step closer to a week off. Balty, meanwhile is in the unique situation of watching the Steelers potentially slide to below Cinci in their division over the next couple of games.
DAL+2*: Dallas pulls the upset against the sliding Steelers.
NE-5.5***: SF has had their hands full with weaker opponents this season. However, NE is coming into their annual late season dominance. Look for SF to have a long flight back home.
Finally, I have not done this all season, but it is time. SEA-5.5*: I don't think Seattle is as good as they looked last week. However, I think Buffalo is that bad. Seattle's very talented secondary is going to have a field day on the lame duck passing styles of Mr. Ryan Fitzpatrick. And, while our line has played well this year, the injury bug has promoted a lot of green depth to protect Fitz against a powerful Seattle pass rush. This game is gonna be ugly, Bills fans.
So, What do you like this weekend? I know that this is a big card (biggest of the season). However, there is a lot to like about this weekend's games!
