Welcome back for Week 15 of the 2020 NFL season. We had our first Saturday slate of games, with three games spread over Thursday and Saturday. We have 12 games to play on Sunday and then Monday Night Football to wrap up the week.
Last week wasn’t great, going 7-9 with my picks and 2-3 with my five best bets of the weekend. It has me at 95-110-2 on total picks and 35-34 on my best bets. A year ago, I went 131-117-4, finishing with a 52.78 win percentage. That’s barely turning a profit, but for a season’s worth of picks, that’s not too bad. I did not track my best bet percentage over the course of the season, but will make sure to do that this year.
I’m going to pick my five “best bets” each week, similar to what you might use in the DraftKings Pro Football Pick ‘Em National Championship. Lines are moving so some of the lines below will be different from what you see on game day. Look for value where you can!
In the meantime, here are my five picks of choice for this weekend:
Texans (+7.5) over Colts
Jets (+18) over Rams
Jaguars (+12.5) over Ravens
Browns (-4.5) over Giants
49ers (-3) over Cowboys
