Jay’s Plays NFL picks: Week 15 predictions and bettor’s guide

THIS IS ERNESTO THE PREDICTION IGUANA AFTER HIS UNDEFEATED WEEK LAST WEEK

SHARE THIS STORY

That is not Godzilla, that is Ernesto the Prediction Iguana eating all bookies for dinner after his 7-0-1 week last week, 3-0-1 in teasers. That brings the season totals here at GNN and JayFlemma.com to a strong 47-15-2 overall, an excellent 17-9-2 in teasers.

Here’s this week’s winners before they happen. And when you collect, tell your man he got crushed iguana style. As always, we do 2-team teasers here, so you can move the line six points in either direction. All lines are from Vegas Insider, HOME TEAM IN CAPS

GREEN LIGHT



RAVENS-Eagles OVER 35.5
Packers (-0.5) at BEARS

Green Bay has their work cut out for them trying to make the playoffs, but they won’t bow out this week against the clearly inferior Bears secondary. The Ravens have enough firepower to head their game right towards the over, and the Eagles have just enough punch to crest the wave of that remarkably low number.

LOOK OUT

Lions (+10.5) at GIANTS
SEAHAWKS-Rams over 33.5

Are you kidding? The Seahawks can score 34 points themselves against the Rams, who will now tap Homer Simpsons for head coach…or maybe Peter Griffin. Yes, we know…Matthew Stafford’s throwing hand is mangled. But 10.5 is a lot to give the Lions anyway, especially in the middle of their best playoff push since 1991.

RED STORM

CHIEFS (+0.5) vs Titans
BENGALS-Steelers OVER 38.5

Can someone please lock Vontaze Burfect in the trunk of their car for this game? And Pacman Jones? It’d be nice to watch these two teams play football for once instead of growling at each other. Meanwhile, Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown are the killer Bs, stinging in their bumblebee unis for 50 points and six touchdowns. Which nickname works best for the Steelers new TE pickup from the Chargers – Hilarious Green, Ladonkeyous Green or Bolonius Green? Meanwhile, the Chiefs upended the Raiders at Arrowhead last week. With 10 days off to prep for the Titans, they better not blow the division title they have right in their hands.
