Making picks and predictions on the Week 15 NFL games, including straight up and against the spread. Last week I went 9-7 on the straight up picks (ouch), and 6-2 against the spread (nice).

Against the Spread

This will be updated as the lines change, up until I make my bets. Remember, if you are planning on making money off of these, don’t. I do this for fun, not to feed my wife and kids.

When betting against the spread I pick what I think the spread to each game should be. Then if my spread is two or more points away from the actual spread, I place a bet on the team my spread favors.
