Look for Kyren Williams to stay hot and go over his rushing prop in week 15.
The telltale sign that the playoffs are quickly approaching is the NFL scheduling three Saturday games this weekend, leaving football fans with ten afternoon matchups to choose from as the season draws to a close.
Dallas and Buffalo will play in the featured 4:25 pm ET kickoff slot, each looking to maintain their current form in closely contested playoff races. The Cowboys have jumped to the 2nd seed in the NFC after winning five straight games, including last week’s SNF trampling of Philadelphia.
Buffalo’s hopes had looked lost following a mid-November loss to Denver at home, but a win in Kansas City last Sunday has at least allowed them to remain tied with the 7th-seeded Indianapolis, among others, for a chance at the postseason. Dallas is an underdog for the third time this season, a spot where they’ve gone 0-2 ATS.
Other intriguing matchups include the Packers hosting the Bucs and the Jets traveling to Miami with some hope to upset their rivals. Green Bay and Tampa Bay are both in playoff positions currently, and the winner will keep pace with their peers while the loser earns a more arduous path to the postseason.
For New York, they may smell blood in the water after watching Miami’s abysmal collapse on Monday night against Tennessee. Zach Wilson returned to the starting lineup in Week 14 to lead the Jets to a 30-6 win at home over the favored Texans.
We’ve avoided these matchups on our NFL Week 15 prop card, but were able to some great value with our best bets for the week.
