Ben’s Betting Blog – Week 15 Preview – Coming into the home straight

Looking ahead to week 15 the playoffs are approaching and this week sees several contenders facing off in a head to head battle which will pretty much decide their fate. Highlighted are 4 important games (2 NFC & 2 AFC) which could mean make or break for certain teams.

NFC

49’ers @ Eagles – Starting with the NFC Playoff battle between Tom’s (7-5) 49’ers, visiting the city of brotherly love to face Craig’s (7-6) Eagles. It looks to be a high scoring affair with both offences firing on all cylinders. Prediction: Tight 23-20 win for the home team. Eagles @ 10/11

49’ers – 7/5
Draw – 33/1
Eagles – 10/11

Cardinals @ Rams – This match up can all but put to bed the NFC West title race. As Epone’s (9-4) Cardinals come marching into LA Memorial Coliseum looking to crush Wayne’s (7-5) Rams. Look for Chandler Jones to get pressure on Jared Goff throughout this NFC West match up and I think he prevails contributing to the same scoreline as earlier in the season 24-10 when these two faced off. My money is on Chandler Jones to get 2+ Sacks @ 2/1 and a Cardinals win @ 4/9

Rams – 12/5
Draw – 25/1
Cardinals – 4/9

AFC

Chargers @ Pats – The next match up is a must win game for the home (4-8) Patriots if they want to keep in the race for the AFC East, however a difficult to predict (8-5) Chargers team come to Foxborough. Unfortunately for the Patriots I can only see this going one way with the Chargers dominant defence lead by Luke Kuechly and I’m going for a special of Chargers to win to nil @ 11/2 and the Chargers win @ 1/5

Chargers – 1/5
Draw – 33/1
Pats – 11/1

Texans @ Bengals – The final match up of week 15 sees two giants clash when the 11-2 Texans head into Cincinnati to face the 11-2 Bengals. In a race to grab the number 1 seed in the AFC. Tough game to predict but I see the Texans beating the odds and edging it 31-28 with a Hopkins to have over 150+ receiving yards @ 7/4 and a Texans win @ 6/5

Texans – 6/5
Draw – 25/1
Bengals – 10/11
