Week 15 Prime Time NFL Betting Picks Thursday Night Football
Los Angeles Chargers (4-9) at Las Vegas Raiders (7-6)
MyBookie.ag has opened the Raiders as 3 ½-point home favorites for Thursday night. The total line has been set at 53 points.
The Chargers are riding out the spring in this division race. Yet, they did snap a straight-up six-game losing streak with last Sunday’s win at home against Atlanta. LA lost the first meeting against Las Vegas 31-26 on Nov. 8 as slight one-point home underdogs.
The Raiders are still in the hunt for a wild card spot in the AFC as motivation for this NFL betting game. They are 5-2 ATS in their last seven AFC contests. Lay the points and take to home team Thursday night.
Sunday Night Football- Cleveland Browns (9-4) at New York Giants (5-8)
Cleveland goes on the road as a 3 ½-point favorite in Sunday night’s inter-conference clash. The betting line for the total is 45 points.
In one of the most exciting prime time games of the season, the Browns came up just short. They lost to Baltimore 47-42 in a wild one this past Monday night. This snapped a SU four-game winning streak.
The Giants’ recent four-game SU winning streak came to an end this past Sunday. They were beaten by Arizona 26-7 as three-point home underdogs. Staying in the friendly confines of New Jersey, they are 4-12 ATS in their last 16 home games. Take Cleveland to rebound quickly with a win and cover.
Monday Night Football- Pittsburgh Steelers (11-2) at Cincinnati Bengals (2-10-1)
The Steelers will try and snap a SU two-game losing streak as heavy 13-point road favorites. The total line has been opened at 40 ½ points.
Pittsburgh cruised to a perfect 11-0 SU start. However, the wheels are starting to come off. Pittsburgh is coming off back-to-back losses to Washington at home and to Buffalo on the road. The offense has been held to a combined 32 points in those two games.
The Bengals are 0-5 SU and 1-4 ATS in their last five games. This slide started with a 36-10 road loss to Pittsburgh on Nov. 15. Cincinnati has failed to score more than 17 points during the five-game slide. Take the UNDER as the best bet in this one.
