Betting Odds for NFL Week 15

With no more bye weeks on tap, the NFL Week 15 schedule returns to a full complement of games for fans and bettors alike. And as college football enters its bowl season, NFL viewers get a full day (Saturday) to consume even more professional football. Beyond an absolutely incredible conclusion to Week 15, what other games should bettors follow on this week’s slate?

Los Angeles Chargers at Las Vegas Raiders (-3)

Thursday, December 14 at 8:15pm EST

The Los Angeles Chargers (5-8) may be in crisis mode after QB Justin Herbert’s fractured index finger in Sunday’s 24-7 loss to AFC West rival Denver. Up next for the Chargers is another divisional rivalry game against the Las Vegas Raiders (5-8). The Raiders’ offensive woes were on full display in their Week 14 loss to Minnesota, dropping the game 3-0 to the Vikings. Aptly, this contest’s over/under total is a Week 15 low by starting at 34 points.

Minnesota Vikings at Cincinnati Bengals (-3.5)

Saturday, December 16 at 1pm EST

Minnesota’s 3-0 win over Las Vegas was the first of its kind since 2007, but the victory showed how dysfunctional the Vikings (7-6) are on offense without QB Kirk Cousins. Cincinnati, meanwhile, has found a gem in QB Jake Browning, a back-up who is 2-0 for the Bengals (7-6) after Burrow’s injury. Despite the Vikings’ low-scoring games recently, this contest’s over/under total starts at 39.5 points.

Pittsburgh Steelers at Indianapolis Colts (-2)

Saturday, December 16 at 4:30pm EST

The mid-Saturday contest showcases the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-6) against the Indianapolis Colts (7-6). Pittsburgh will continue to be without QB Kenny Pickett, forcing the Steelers to rely on Mitch Trubisky again in Week 15. Indianapolis is also relying on a backup QB, but Gardner Minshew has 13 games and multiple starts under this belt this season. This contest’s over/under total is set at 42 points.

Denver Broncos at Detroit Lions (-5)

Saturday, December 16 at 8:15pm EST

Suddenly, the Denver Broncos (7-6) find themselves one game out of the AFC West lead after Kansas City’s recently losing streak combined with the Broncos’ six wins in their last seven outings. Detroit, conversely, is in the NFC North’s driver seat as the Lions (9-4) hold a two-game lead over Minnesota despite Week 14’s surprising 28-13 loss to the Chicago Bears. Bettors will find this contest’s over/under starting at 47.5 points.

Chicago Bears at Cleveland Browns (-3.5)

Sunday, December 17 at 1pm EST

Chicago enters the contest riding a two-game winning streak after the Bears (5-8) dispatched the Lions in Week 14. Cleveland also enters the matchup on a win as the Browns (8-5) bested the Jacksonville Jaguars 31-27 behind their new QB Joe Flacco and his 311-yard performance. Both teams need wins to continue chasing a playoff berth. Oddsmakers have discounted this game’s over/under total with odds starting at 37.5 points.

Atlanta Falcons (-3) at Carolina Panthers

Sunday, December 17 at 1pm EST

The Falcons (6-7) are part of a three-way tie atop the NFC South division. Atlanta can continue to be tied for first with a win Sunday over the Carolina Panthers (1-12). These NFC South rivals played against each other in their 2023 NFL Season opener, a 24-10 victory for the Falcons. Using their previous contest as a guide, oddsmakers have listed this game’s over/under total at 35 points.

New York Jets at Miami Dolphins (-8.5)

Sunday, December 17 at 1pm EST

The New York Jets (5-8) ended their four-game losing streak in Week 13, upending the Falcons 13-8. Now, the Jets have their sights on evening the score against the Miami Dolphins (9-4), one of the four teams they lost to during their four-game skid. The Dolphins unexpectedly fell to Tennessee Monday night 28-27, meaning Miami needs to win to maintain their chance at home field advantage throughout the NFL playoffs. After the two teams posted nearly 50 points in their first matchup, oddsmakers are discounting this game’s over/under total at 38.5 points.

Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans (-2.5)

Sunday, December 17 at 1pm EST

Houston’s momentum came to a screeching halt Sunday as the Jets beat the Texans (7-6) by 24 points in Week 14. Now, Houston must regroup to face the suddenly-healthy Tennessee Titans (5-8). Tennessee pulled off a 28-27 upset over Miami Monday night, and the Titans are slightly favored in the AFC South matchup. This contest’s over/under total is starting at 37.5 points.

New York Giants at New Orleans Saints (-5.5)

Sunday, December 17 at 1pm EST

Suddenly, the New York Giants (5-8) are competitive. A three-game win streak has propelled the Giants into the playoff discussion thanks to weak NFC competition. Up next for New York is a trip to New Orleans to face the Saints (6-7). New Orleans maintained their first-place tie in the NFC South by walloping the Panthers 28-6 last week. Oddsmakers have set this game’s over/under total at 37.5 points.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Green Bay Packers (-3.5)

Sunday, December 17 at 1pm EST

Either the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (6-7) or the Green Bay Packers (6-7) will leave the battle of the Bays with a .500 record. Tampa has won two straight, including Week 14’s 29-25 victory over the Falcons to force a three-way NFC South tie atop the division. Green Bay saw their three-game winning streak end Monday night, falling 24-22 to the Giants. This game’s over/under total is starting at 41.5 points.

Kansas City Chiefs (-8.5) at New England Patriots

Sunday, December 17 at 1pm EST

When schedule makers put the Kansas City Chiefs (8-5) against the New England Patriots (3-10) early in 2023, a battle for playoff positioning in this Week 15 matchup was a dream scenario. Kansas City – despite dropping their past two games – held up their end of the bargain. The Patriots, however, have faltered all season long due to their poor offensive showing. Fittingly, this contest’s over/under total is starting at 37 points.

San Francisco 49ers (-13.5) at Arizona Cardinals

Sunday, December 17 at 4:05pm EST

The San Francisco 49ers (10-3) will put their undefeated NFC West record on the line in their rematch against the Arizona Cardinals (3-10). The 49ers have won five straight games and are tied atop the NFL’s standings with the best record. Arizona had an extra to prepare for this contest as one of the last teams to have a bye week during the 2023 season. In the two teams’ first battle, San Francisco won 35-16. Oddsmakers have discounted this Week 15 rematch’s over/under total, setting it at 47.5 points.

Washington Commanders at Los Angeles Rams (-6.5)

Sunday, December 17 at 4:05pm EST

Washington also enjoyed a bye week during Week 14, giving the Commanders (4-9) a chance to prepare for the Los Angeles Rams (6-7). The Rams surprised bettors last week by going toe-to-toe with the Ravens, falling 37-31 in overtime. With the Commanders surrendering a league-worst 30 points per outing, this game’s over/under total is set at 49 points.

Dallas Cowboys at Buffalo Bills (-2)

Sunday, December 17 at 4:25pm EST

The 1990’s kids fondly remember when the Dallas Cowboys (10-3) and the Buffalo Bills (7-6) battled in back-to-back Super Bowls. While Dallas looks primed for another deep playoff run, the Bills have hovered around .500 most of the 2023 season. Both teams enter this matchup on a winning note, however. This contest’s over/under total is the Week 15’s highest, starting at 50.5 points.

Baltimore Ravens (-3) at Jacksonville Jaguars

Sunday, December 17 at 8:20pm EST

The Baltimore Ravens (10-3) have the AFC’s best record and will look to extend their three-game winning streak against the Jacksonville Jaguars (8-5). Before QB Trevor Lawrence suffered an ankle injury, Jacksonville looked like the Ravens’ biggest threat to dethrone Baltimore as the AFC’s top playoff seed. Now, the Jaguars need to win to maintain their place atop the AFC South division. This game’s over/under total is starting at 43.5 points.

Philadelphia Eagles (-3.5) at Seattle Seahawks

Monday, December 18 at 8:15pm EST

Week 15’s finale pits the Philadelphia Eagles (10-3) against the Seattle Seahawks (6-7). Both teams enter this contest with losing streaks. Philadelphia dropped their second straight, losing in Week 14 in Dallas. The Seahawks have lost four straight games, dropping their rematch to the San Francisco 49ers 28-16 a week ago. This game’s over/under total starts at 47.5 points.
