NFL Week 15 picks

As we get closer to the playoff the lines get sharper. Another tough week featuring 2 Saturday match ups. As always here are our best bets in NFL.

Green Bay +3 at Carolina: Give the Packers credit they stayed in the wild-card mix with Brett Hundley under centre. Well now they get the great Aaron Rodgers back. There is nothing he can't do and Green Bay is desperate knowing they must win out and get some help from Atlanta or Seattle losing to make the playoffs. Carolina is inconsistent looking inept vs the Saints then following that up with a solid win over Minnesota. We saw last year Rodgers can win huge road games in Dallas, Detroit and Minnesota down the stretch and we like the elite quarterback getting points. Pick: Green Bay

Philadelphia -7 at NY Giants: The sky is falling in Philadelphia. The injury to Carson Wentz turns the Eagles from the favorite in the NFL to just a good team who could be a home underdog in the playoffs with Nick Foles. There is a huge drop off at qb here as Foles will not be able to scramble and make plays with his legs like Wentz. We do feel he is good enough to keep the Eagles flying in this match up against the horrific G-Men. New York led Dallas 10-3 last week only to give up 27 un answered in a 30-10 loss. The Giants are playing out the stretch and Eagles will want to prove they can still go up and down the field with a guy who did for them in the past. Pick: Eagles

La Rams +3 at Seattle: The Rams blew a big opportunity losing to Philadelphia last week on a great play by Chris Long who strip sacked Jared Goff and helped pull out an Eagles win late. The Rams know this is a must win game or they fall into a 1st place tie with Seattle and would lose the tie breaker having been swept by the Seahawks. In the first meeting L.A lost despite out gaining Seattle 375-241 yards. Seattle's defence is holding on for dear life and couldn't stop Blake Bortles last week. The Rams are much healthier and have a score to settle. We will take the visitors getting points. Pick: Los Angeles.

Enjoy the football all weekend.
