The Don Best crew is back with picks and analysis for seven games on the Week 15 NFL betting slate, and it all starts with a pair of division leaders colliding at the Georgia Dome.
Atlanta is coming off just its second loss of the campaign with Eli Manning and the Giants coming to town. The Falcons opened as 1-point favorites with the total at 52 (click to check updated NFL odds). New York has won its last five trips to Atlanta, where the "under" is also 5-0.
A pair of teams riding three-game skids will battle in the Big Easy, where the Saints are 3-3½ point favorites vs. the Buccaneers. Sunday's total is 54, and six of the last nine meetings in New Orleans have fallen short of the number.
In what might amount to a playoff-elimination contest, the Vikings are in St. Louis to face the Rams. St. Louis is favored by three with 38½ for the scoreboard tally.
Peyton Manning and the Broncos will travel to Baltimore as 2½-point favorites on the Ravens' turf. Bettors are facing a 48-point total, with four of the last five meetings going "under."
Another 48-point total can be found in Houston, where the Texans welcome their AFC South rivals from Indianapolis. Houston is currently listed at -8½, and the teams will meet once again two weeks from now in Indy.
Cam Newton and the Panthers make the cross-country trek to San Diego, where the Chargers are laying a field goal in this interconference duel. The total has dropped just a tad to the 45-45½ point range after coming out at 46.
Seattle hits the highway in search of its third consecutive win in another NFC-AFC matchup in Buffalo's annual "home" game in Toronto. Seahawks backers will be giving up 5½ in this tilt that is currently listing 42½-43 for the scoreboard hurdle.
