NFL Week 15 Parlay Picks

NFL Week 15 Parlay Picks

A crazy week in the NFL (see below) has led to some interesting NFL Week 15 Parlay Picks. St. Louis plays Arizona while Houston battles Indianapolis. Miami vs. New England and Seattle hosting San Francisco make up the other two games in the four-team parlay.

NFL Week 15 Two-Team Parlay Pick

  • St. Louis Rams -3.5     
  • Houston Texans +6.5

Arizona Cardinals at St. Louis Rams
When: Thursday, Dec. 11 at 8:25 pm ET
TV:  NFL
Betting Line: St. Louis -3.5

Analysis: The shine is off a bit on the Cardinals while things just keep getting brighter for the St. Louis Rams. Arizona had lost 2 straight including losing 3 to 19 to Seattle and 18 to 29 to Atlanta.

A victory over KC in Week 14 put them back on the winning track, but what’s up with losing to Atlanta? That was a terrible game for the Cardinals who simply cannot move the ball as well with Drew Stanton at quarterback as it can with Carson Palmer.

St. Louis obliterated Washington on the road in Week 14. The Rams decimated the team from D.C. in a 24 to 0 victory where it held Colt McCoy to a 54 QB rating after he threw less than 200 yards, 2 interceptions and no touchdowns. The Rams’ D could very well do the same to Stanton on Thursday night.

Pick: St. Louis Rams -3.5

Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts
When:  Sunday, Dec. 14 at 1:00 pm ET
TV: CBS
Betting Line: Colts -6.5

Analysis: The Colts were all out to beat Cleveland by a single point, 25 to 24, in a very good road victory in Week 14. Indianapolis’ defense just isn’t as good as the overall stats indicate. The D has given up 24 points or more in 2 straight games.

Now, the Texans come into town and things could get tough for Indy in this matchup. Houston always seems to play the Colts tough as it is, but now QB Ryan Fitzpatrick appears to be on a roll. He only garnered an 88.7 QB rating in the Texans’ 27 to 13 victory over Jacksonville last week, but who cares? Fitz didn’t throw a pick and he completed 68% of his passes.

J.J. Watt can get to Colts’ QB Andrew Luck. Houston should find a way to keep this one within the number.

Pick: Houston Texans +6.5

NFL Week 15 Three-Team Parlay Pick

  • St. Louis Rams -3.5     
  • Houston Texans +6.5
  • New England Patriots -7

Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots
When:  Thursday, Dec. 14 at 1:00 pm ET
TV: CBS
Betting Line: New England -7

Analysis: Baltimore’s 28 to 13 win over Miami proves that as good as the Dolphins has looked this season, they’ve got a ways to go before becoming an elite team in the AFC.

Baltimore rushed for 183 yards, which means that Miami has given up 201 yards to the Broncos, 277 yards to the Jets and now 183 yards to the Ravens on the ground in their last 3 games. They should play New England tougher because the Dolphins are always hard on the Patriots, but the Pats have three guys that can run with the football:  LeGarrette Blount, Jonas Grey and Brandon Bolden.

If Miami commits to stopping the run, Tom Brady figures to make them pay. New England is the team to back in this matchup.

Pick: New England Patriots -7

NFL Week 15 Four-Team Parlay Pick

  • St. Louis Rams -3.5     
  • Houston Texans +6.5
  • New England Patriots -7
  • Seattle Seahawks -10.5   

San Francisco 49’ers at Seattle Seahawks
When:  Sunday, Dec. 14 at 4:25 pm ET
TV:  FOX
Betting Line:  

Analysis: San Francisco isn’t as bad as New Orleans, but they are one of those NFC pre-season favorites that really haven’t lived up to the hype. Even though the 49’ers won three games in a row before losing to Seattle on Thanksgiving Day, they had failed to cover a 9 point spread against Washington in a 17 to 13 win and losing to Oakland straight up is unforgivable.

Seattle is the much better team. The defense proved again why the Seahawks are going to be very difficult to beat in the NFC when it held the Philadelphia Eagles in check in Week 14. Seattle’s D will dominate QB Colin Kaepernick, much like it did in the Turkey Day victory, and complete the sweep against the Niners while covering the spread.  

Pick: Seattle Seahawks -10.5
