The Week 15 schedule features the two biggest point spreads of the year as the 2015 NFL regular season heads down the final stretch. While some games on the upcoming schedule feature two teams that are battling for playoff berths, others pit a Super Bowl favorite against a team competing for the No.1 overall pick in the upcoming draft.
Almost 11 months after battling in the Super Bowl, the Seattle Seahawks and New England Patriots are the biggest favorites in Week 15. Seattle is giving 14.5 points to the visiting Cleveland Browns, who just snapped a seven-game losing streak. The Tennessee Titans are getting 14 points in their trip to New England, who just reclaimed the No.1 seed in the AFC.
The Cincinnati Bengals currently have the second bye in the AFC, but that might not last much longer with Andy Dalton possibly missing the rest of the regular season. Even with backup quarterback A.J. McCarron in the lineup, Cincinnati is a 4.5-point road favorite against the San Francisco 49ers.
While there are some very big betting lines, two games on the Week 15 schedule are a pick’em. No team is favored in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ game with the St. Louis Rams. The same is true for the contest between the Miami Dolphins and San Diego Chargers, both of whom have been eliminated from postseason contention.
There is no betting line for the matchup between the Houston Texans and Indianapolis Colts. It’s unknown who will start at quarterback for either team.
Two games on the schedule feature over/unders of more than 50 points. The highest-scoring game could come on Monday night between the Detroit Lions and New Orleans Saints.
