Trying to make NFL picks against the spread can be very difficult. There are a lot of factors to consider. Those factors include how much money you have to put on the line, what team you think will win, and whether you can predict the outcome of a particular game.
Steelers vs Falcons
Despite having a 1-3 record so far this season, the Steelers are still favored to win this game. This will be their second game at Heinz Field this season, so the home fans should be ready to cheer them on.
Atlanta has been a decent barnburner this season, winning two of its last three games. They also lost to two division leaders this season. They aren’t going to win against the Steelers in the 30s, but they should be able to keep this one close.
Pittsburgh hasn’t been able to put together an impressive win yet, but they have managed to win three of the last six games by a margin of four points or less. They also haven’t lost to a team that lost by more than six points this season.
The Falcons are coming off a loss to the Bengals. They’ll also be without a few players that missed the game with injuries. They will be without Devonta Freeman (knee), Cordarrelle Patterson (knee), and Kevin Dotson (questionable for Sunday’s game).
The Steelers are averaging over 17 points per game and have one win on the season. Their offensive line isn’t quite as good as it was last season. They are also playing with an injured defense.
Dolphins vs Texans
Texans are coming off of a 23-10 loss to the Washington Commanders. The Texans entered the game as a 3.5-point underdog against the Dolphins.
Miami is coming off a four-game winning streak. The Dolphins entered the season as a postseason contender. In fact, they were favored in seven of the first eight games of the season. They have a 5-1 record when favored.
Houston Texans have lost three of their last four games. They are averaging 15.9 points per game. They are ranked in the bottom half of the league in total yards and points allowed.
The Texans’ defense ranks in the bottom third in the league in rushing yards allowed per game. They are giving up 184.3 yards per game to RBs.
The Texans have been struggling on offense all season. They rank in the bottom half of the league in passing yards allowed. They have allowed 210.7 passing yards per game. They are ranked in the 18th-ranked offense in total yards allowed.
Rams vs Seahawks
Luckily for those looking to make some NFL betting picks, the Rams and Seahawks are going to clash in Week 15 of the regular season. While both teams are battling for playoff spots, the Rams are still in the running for the top spot in the NFC West. And with the Cardinals and Seahawks still lurking, the Rams could pull even for the top spot with a win.
The Seahawks have won two straight games, but they are just one game back from a playoff spot. They have also won two straight games at home, so they are on the right track. But the team is not doing very well on defense, which could be a problem against the Rams.
The Seahawks are allowing more than 20.2 PPG, which is the worst mark in the NFL. They are also giving up more than 292.5 yards passing per game. However, they have been able to get lucky with returns and turnovers.
Browns vs 49ers
Taking a look at the odds for the Browns vs. 49ers, it’s clear that the oddsmakers are giving the 49ers an edge, despite their record. The 49ers have a better defense than the Browns, and have won their last four games. They also have an offensive line that is better than the Browns, so it’s no surprise they’re favored.
The Browns are coming off of an impressive win against the Baltimore Ravens. They are 2-2, and have won three straight games after losing their first two. They’ve been favored in three of their last four home games. However, they haven’t covered in either of those games.
The 49ers are 2-1 against the spread this season. They are also 1-0 in their last two games against the Browns. They are averaging 32.0 points per game, but are giving up 18 points per game.
The Browns have an elite running game, led by Nick Chubb. He’s averaging 5.1 yards per carry. He also rushed for 165 yards in last week’s win over the Baltimore Ravens.
