Welcome to another week of football betting. Before we get into the most interesting bets of Week 15, let’s take a look and see how we did last week.
Our tease of the week last week was a 10-point, three teamer with:
Baltimore Ravens (+2.5) over Cleveland Browns
Jacksonville Jaguars (-1.5) over Houston Texans
Atlanta Falcons (+4) over Tampa Bay Buccaneers
With the Falcons and Ravens winning outright and Jacksonville covering the minus-1.5 with ease, we won another tease of the week.
Our second bet was a five-team moneyline parlay with:
Troy (-247) over North Texas in the R+L Carriers New Orleans Bowl
Arkansas State (-172) over Middle Tennessee in the Raycom Media Camellia Bowl
Minnesota Vikings (-525) over Cincinnati Bengals
Jacksonville Jaguars (-555) over Houston Texans
New Orleans Saints (-1100) over New York Jets
We hit on four out of the five teams, with Troy, Minnesota, Jacksonville, and New Orleans all winning. However, Arkansas State could not get the job done despite star quarterback Justice Hansen throwing for over 300 yards and three touchdowns.
My upset special last week was the Los Angeles Rams (+2.5) against the Seahawks in Seattle. The Rams dominated the game from start to finish on way to a 42-7 divisional victory.
