NFL Week 15 Betting: San Francisco 49ers @ New England Patriots Pick and Prediction

The San Francisco 49ers and New England Patriots will get together on Sunday Night Football. San Francisco leads the NFC West with a 9-3-1 record. The Patriots are also leading their division; the AFC East with a 10-3 record. Both of these teams heading into Week 15 would be the second seed in their conference. The 49ers are coming off a home win over Miami, while the Patriots picked up a huge Monday Night win over the Houston Texans.

The Patriots are red hot right now. They have won seven straight games and have the highest point differential in all of the NFL. The Patriots are coming off their big win on national TV and would like to repeat that in Week 15. New England continues to play with Tom Brady under center. The best quarterback in the last decade has thrown for nearly 4,000 yards this season. New England adds a solid running back duo in Stevan Ridley, who has 10 touchdowns. The Patriots continue to play without their top tight end Rob Gronkowski, who is out with a broken forearm.

The San Francisco 49ers came back from their overtime loss to St. Louis with a nice win over the Dolphins. Now San Francisco wants to run the table and receive a first round bye in the postseason. The 49ers are the second best running team in all of the league with nearly 162 yards per game. Frank Gore has been the beast, with over 1,000 yards and 7 touchdowns. San Francisco has seen both Michael Crabtree and Vernon Davis catch five touchdown passes. The 49ers have two divisional foes remaining on their 2012 regular season schedule.

Free Prediction and Pick

This is going to be an excellent football game. The schedule makers did a great job scheduling this game, especially this late in the season. There is no doubt, the Patriots are an offense first team, while San Francisco is one of the best defensive teams in the league. Tom Brady will be challenged by the San Francsico defense. The Ptriots defense has been better as of late, and will create alot of havoc for Collin Kaepernick. Look for New England to score early, and often and come away with a win in this game.

Prediction: New England Patriots 27-17

The Patriots are nearly a touchdown favorite in this game. New England is listed at -5.5 to start the week. We like San Francisco to stay around for a little bit, but in the end, the defense of the 49ers will wear down, and Brady will continue tossing touchdowns. We are taking the New England Patriots -5.5 in this game.

Pick: New England Patriots -5.5



NFL Week 15 Betting: Green Bay Packers @ Chicago Bears Pick and Prediction

On Sunday, the NFC North will be up for grabs, as the Green Bay Packers head to Soldier Field to take on the Chicago Bears. The Packers come into the game as the divisional leader by a game over the Bears. Green Bay moved to 9-4 with a win over the Detroit Lions last Sunday night. Chicago dropped their fourth game in their last five to Minnesota, and sit a game back of the Packers. Green Bay won the first game between these two teams back in September, at home.

The Chicago Bears have got to figure out a way to snap their losing streak. In the latest loss to Minnesota, quarterback Jay Cutler left early with a neck injury. Cutler is expected to play, but has not been real sharp lately. Chicago’s running game has been limited all season long. Matt Forte leads the attack with with 834 yards on the ground. Brandon Marshall has been a godsend for the Bears offense, as he leads the way with 101 receptions; 9 of them for touchdowns.

The Green Bay Packers are winning games, but doing it ugly. The Packers are coming off a win over the Lions, in which they trailed 14-0 early in the game. Green Bay overall has won 7 of their last 8 since losing a road game at Indianapolis to fall to 2-3. Jordy Nelson and Randall Cobb are main threats offensively, as they have a combined 13 touchdown receptions. The Green Bay running game has been better this season; but they still do not run for touchdowns. The Packers have 29 passing touchdowns on the season.

Odds and Sports Betting Line

  • Green Bay Packers -3
  • Chicago Bears +3

Free Prediction and Pick

The Packers with a win would seal the deal in the NFC North. Chicago, with a win would tie the division up with two games to go. The Packers also would pretty much lock up a postseason spot, while the Bears are just a game ahead of the final wildcard spot. Chicago has been banged up, with both Brian Urlacher and Robbie Gould going out for the remainder of the season. Of course, the Packers have injuries as well. We look for Aaron Rodgers to have one of his best games of the season, and Green Bay comes away with a win.

Prediction: Green Bay Packers 31-17

The Packers are a favorite despite being on the road. Green Bay is listed at -3 at Chicago. We like the Packers to cover this spread, and win the game going away. With a loss, the Bears will now have to struggle in their final two games to get into the postseason.

Pick: Green Bay Packers -3

The Monday Night Football game for Week 14 promises to be a dandy. The top team in the AFC will take on one of the hottest teams in the game.

The Patriots are one of the top offensive teams in the game. New England ranks in the Top 10 in both passing and rushing yards. Tom Brady has been great once again with over 3,500 yards and 35 touchdowns.

Steven Ridley has been a godsend for New England at the running back position. Ridley has 1,010 yards and 9 touchdowns. The Patriots have not lost since October 14th at the Seattle Seahawks.

This is going to be a great game between two teams that will definitely be heading to the postseason. This game could go a long way in deciding who has home field advantage in the postseason. A win on the road for Houston would be fantastic, while New England expects to win this game at home. Both quarterbacks have been fantastic. In the end, look for the dominating offense of the Patriots to outshine the tough defense from Houston. We like the Patriots to win by a touchdown.

The Vegas line for this game features the New England Patriots by just over a field goal. We expect that to be pretty close for most of the night. Towards the end, the Patriots will pull away with a win by a touchdown. We are betting the New England Patriots -3.5 over the Houston Texans in this one.

Pick: New England Patriots -3.5
