It was yet another exhilarating week of NFL football in Week 14 and we hope to have the same success this week. We head into Week 15 of the 2020 NFL season as this year has seemingly gone by so fast now with the playoffs right around the corner.

NFL betting Picks Week 15 2020

We are looking at the best picks to make for this week in the NFL and we start off with a team that always finds themselves on the list.

New York Jets v Los Angeles Rams

New York Jets+17½ -121+750Ov 43½ -110
Pick: Los Angeles Rams-17½ +101-2000Un 43½ -110

The first game on our list happens to feature a regular that has made an appearance on this list every single week. The New York Jets against the Los Angeles Rams is the first matchup for this week.

It is the same old story for the Jets as it is becoming clear that they want to lose games. This franchise obviously doesn’t mind losing games in order to get a top draft selection and their decision to not fire head coach Adam Gase further proves this point.

Their offense is seemingly worse with Sam Darnold in at quarterback and their rushing attack is basically non-existent without Frank Gore in the lineup. This inability to get the ball moving on the offensive side of the ball damages their defenses ability to stop their opponents, making them the worst team in the entire league.

Their opponent this week happens to be one of the best teams in the NFC and happens to feature a very dominant defense.

They rank among the top five units in the league behind superstar Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey, as these two guys bolster their defensive line along with their secondary.

Their offense has struggled at times this season but their three headed monsters at running back has proven to be devastating for their opponents this year.

The Jets have been able to keep a few games close this season against a few quality opponents, but I don’t believe this is one of those games. I believe that the Rams are going to fully dominate this team similar to how the Seahawks throttled them a week ago.

Pick: Los Angeles Rams

Detroit Lions v Tennessee Titans

12/20 – Sunday NFL 1:00 PM

NFL – Dec 20; Odds by BetOnline – $1,000 Bonus Bet HERE
Detroit Lions+11 -109TBAOv 51½ -110
Pick: Tennessee Titans-11 -111TBAUn 51½ -110

The next game up on this is the battle between the Detroit Lions and the Tennessee Titans.

For Detroit, they haven’t had the level of consistency that they were hoping to achieve this season and it has resulted in the firing of head coach Matt Patricia. Apparently, he was not liked very much around the locker room as future Hall of Fame running back Adrian Peterson stated that “football is fun again.”

Their offense has been able to generate some success with Matthew Stafford controlling their offense along with their running back trio that has proven to be successful. Their biggest problem is their lack of talent on the defensive side of the football.

To make matters even worse for them, they just recently lost rookie cornerback Jeff Okudah for the year after he opted to get season ending surgery.

Their defense is already among the worst in the league and should fall even further down the list with the loss of Okudah.

Now, the face a hot Titans team that owns arguably the best running back in the entire NFL in Derrick Henry.

Henry has been able to wear down any defense so far this season and appears to get even stronger as the game progresses. He is bound to wreak havoc against this already weak Lions defense. The Titans defense is also hurting this season but has benefited from Henry and their dominant rushing attack in order to keep them off the field long enough to avoid fatigue.

The Lions have a few good things going for them in this game, but the Titans are simply a far better team than Detroit and should be able to dominate the time of possession battle in order to walk away with a victory.

Pick: Titans

Pittsburgh Steelers v Cincinnati Bengals

Monday, Dec 21, 2020 NFL 08:15 PM

NFL – Dec 20; Odds by BetOnline – $1,000 Bonus Bet HERE
Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers-13 -110-770Ov 40½ -105
Cincinnati Bengals+13 -110+570 Un 40½ -115

The last game on our list for the week is the division matchup between the Pittsburgh Steelers and the Cincinnati Bengals.

Pittsburgh started the year off 11-0 but has since lost their last two games against the Washington Football Team and the Buffalo Bills. In each of those games, their receiving core dropped numerous passes that would have moved the chains and those dropped balls ended up coming back to bite them.

It also doesn’t help that their offense has zero rushing attack with James Connor barely creating separation past the line of scrimmage.

However, their team has been kept afloat due to their dominance on the defensive side of the football. They are missing a ton of key starters due to injuries this season and yet are still one of the top five units in the league heading into this game.

They have talent on all three levels, the secondary, the linebacker corps and the defensive line.

Their opponent can’t say the same thing as the Bengals have completely collapsed after losing number one overall pick Joe Burrow for the year after a gruesome looking knee injury.

Burrow was making this team look far better than what they are, and it has truly showed in recent weeks.

Brandon Allen has had zero success filling in for Burrow and this entire offense just looks stagnant as a whole. This should make for a very easy evening for Minkah Fitzpatrick and the Steelers defense that is looking to make a statement this weekend.

On the other side of the ball, Ben Roethlisberger should be able to lead his offense down the field against a very young and inexperienced Cincinnati defense that has allowed way too many touchdowns throughout the season.

Even though people believe the Steelers are overrated and are on the decline, they are still one of the better teams in the league while the Bengals are one of the worst. They should completely dominant them from start to finish and win big.

Pick: Steelers
