Week 15 Parlay, Teaser & Prop Best Bets
Week 15 of the NFL season is here and VI is getting you ready for this weekend’s slate of games with another bundle of free parlay and teaser suggestions to help bettors cash winning tickets or inspire them to build their own exotic selections.
After cashing my Week 14 Three-Team Teaser, I have decided to come back with another teaser in this piece, in addition to my weekly money line parlay and touchdown props.
My selections for Week 15 can be found below.
NFL Week 15 Parlay Best Bets
2-Way Money-Line Parlay
- San Francisco 49ers at Dallas Cowboys (-155)
- Kansas City Chiefs at New Orleans Saints (-150)
Payout: +176 at BetMGM
For the first leg of this money line parlay, I will be looking at Sunday afternoon’s Dallas-San Francisco game, as the visiting 49ers will head to Jerry’s World as 3-point favorites against the Cowboys, who still sit at the bottom of the barrel in the NFC East standings.
San Francisco is 5-8 on the year and has lost its past two games (Washington and Buffalo), but it is hard to blame them considering the injuries that continue to plague Kyle Shanahan’s team on both sides of the ball, to go along with the NFC West’s brutal schedule this season (November schedule: Seattle, Green Bay, New Orleans, LA Rams).
Nick Mullens will be under center for the 49ers again this week, but San Francisco will finally get a crack at a defensive front that they can run the ball effectively against, considering Dallas ranks dead last in rushing yards allowed per game (162.7) and in rushing yards allowed per attempt (5.1).
Since taking over the reins at quarterback for Jimmy Garoppolo, Mullens has been hammered by matchups with elite defenses (New Orleans, Los Angeles, Washington), but he has managed to thrive against poor defenses (Buffalo and Seattle).
Dallas has the worst defense in the league, especially against the run. I’ll take the 49ers -165 in this game.
Saints’ quarterback, Drew Brees (rib), is set to return from IR this week, just in time for what is set to be the most highly anticipated matchup of this year’s NFL season, as the Chiefs will visit the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans, Louisiana.
Patrick Mahomes threw a career-worst, three interceptions last week, but it was still not enough to cost Kansas City the contest as they still managed to extend their streak to eight consecutive wins with a victory over the Dolphins on Sunday (33-27).
On the other hand, the Saints just had a lengthy winning streak snapped last week as Sean Payton’s crew suffered a head-scratching loss to the Philadelphia Eagles in Jalen Hurts’ NFL debut as a starter (24-21).
New Orleans undeniably gains a boost on offense with Brees returning to the lineup, but the Saints have not looked “great” on offense for several weeks, now scoring under 25 points in three of their last four contests.
This is a tough matchup for Brees to make a return for after spending multiple weeks on injured reserve, and I believe Mahomes will come back with a chip on his shoulder this week after putting up possibly the worst performance in his career to date in Miami.
I’ll back the Chiefs -150 to get it done in Brees’ first game back from injury.
NFL Week 15 Teaser Best Bets
- Baltimore Ravens -6.5 vs. Jacksonville Jaguars (-12.5)
- Buffalo Bills 0.0 at Denver Broncos (-6)
- Tampa Bay Buccaneers 0.0 at Atlanta Falcons (-6)
Payout: +174 at BetMGM
Lamar Jackson delivered an enormous divisional victory to the city of Baltimore last week as third place Ravens toppled the Browns in an electric shootout on Monday Night Football (47-42), but the path to the playoffs is far from set in stone for Jon Harbaugh’s guys as they find themselves tied with the Dolphins for the final playoff spot in the AFC heading into Week 15.
Luckily for the Ravens, they will host the Jacksonville Jaguars this week, who have only earned one win on the season which came in a Week 1 fluke over the Colts (27-20).
Baltimore’s offense ranks 1st in the league in both rushing yards per game (173.8) and rush yards per attempt (5.3) by a healthy margin. While Jacksonville’s defense ranks 30th in the NFL in rushing yards allowed per game (145.5) and 26th in rush yards allowed per attempt (4.6).
This game should be an ugly mismatch. I like the Ravens -6.5 to win this game by at least a touchdown.
On Sunday Night Football last week, Buffalo handed the Steelers their second consecutive loss, but it seems the public still remains unimpressed by Josh Allen and company as they head into their Week 15 matchup with the Broncos as just 6-point favorites.
The way Buffalo gets things done is not always ideal for fans and bettors, but aside from getting beaten by Arizona on a last-second hail mary attempt, the Bills have not lost a game since mid-October, which was in a hard-fought loss to the Chiefs.
The Bills run-game is not particularly strong, but they are going up against a Denver rush defense ranking 28th in rush yards allowed per attempt (4.6) and 27th in rush yards allowed per game (131).
Allen’s dynamic playmaking ability makes it nearly an impossible task to slow him down in play-action schemes if you partner him up with an efficient running game, and I believe that is exactly what we will see from the Bills this Sunday.
Expect a quality performance from Allen this week. Give me Buffalo to beat Denver.
For the final leg of this teaser, Tom Brady will have his first matchup with the Atlanta Falcons as a member of the NFC South and in this game, I am riding with the Bucs.
The Falcons have scored less than 20 points in three of their last four games and will be without All-Pro wideout, Julio Jones, for this upcoming contest with the Bucs. Typically, the Falcons’ offense loses its identity when their best pass catcher does not suit up, and I expect that to be the case this week against a Tampa Bay defense allowing just 22.6 points per game.
At this point in the season, the Buccaneers find themselves in a position where a playoff spot is not a given, and they need to put together a few wins to solidify their spot in the postseason.
I think Tampa Bay inevitably makes the playoffs and wins out the rest of its regular season games. I’ll take the Buccaneers over the Falcons to close this teaser.
NFL Week 14 TD Prop Best Bets
Anytime Touchdown Props at BetMGM
Indianapolis Colts RB Jonathan Taylor (-120) vs. Houston
Indianapolis has possessed a revolving door in their backfield for the majority of this season, but in recent weeks it seems they have finally settled on a primary running-back as rookie, Jonathan Taylor has handled 60 touches over his last three games and has played over 50% percent of the Colts’ offensive snaps across that stretch.
During those games, Taylor rumbled for 390 total yards of offense and punched in three touchdowns, easily earning himself another week with the lead role. Back him to score another touchdown here against an Indianapolis defensive front ranking 31st in both rush yards allowed per game (152.3) and rush yards allowed per attempt (5.0).
Baltimore Ravens RB J.K. Dobbins vs. (-140) Jacksonville
J.K. Dobbins is another rookie running-back who is beginning to take over the lead role in his backfield, as he has handled the bulk of Baltimore’s rushing workload for the last month or so. Prior to the Ravens’ bye week, Dobbins season-high in rush attempts was 9 rushes over six games.
Following the bye week, Dobbins has suited up for six games and carried the ball at least 10 times in five of those games and has now scored a touchdown in three consecutive contests. I expect Baltimore to dominate Jacksonville through the run-game this week and Dobbins to lead the way with at least one score.
Pittsburgh Stelers WR Diontae Johnson (+165) at Cincinnati Bengals
Steelers’ wide-receiver, Diontae Johnson, was benched during the Steelers loss to the Bills last week as Johnson and the rest of the Steelers’ receiving core continuously dropped well-thrown passes from quarterback Ben Roethlisberger.
Prior to last week, Johnson had hauled in 34 passes for 344 yards and two touchdowns over his last four games, and one of those TD’s came in a win over the Bengals. Back Johnson to have a bounce-back performance against Cincinnati with another TD grab against a divisional opponent.
