Week 15 of the NFL betting season is here and the intensity has already began to build up. 

Philadelphia Eagles (9-4) vs New York Giants (9-4)

Both the Eagles and Giants rank on top of the NFC East with the tiebreaker currently leaning in favor of Philly. 

QB Eli Manning and the Giants enter yet another must win game in hopes of securing the top seed in their respective division.

QB Michael Vick continues to produce for the Eagles and will undoubtedly be a handful for New York this football betting week.

Spread: The Giants will give 2.5 points to the Eagles in this match-up

Prediction: This battle will come down to who plays better defense. Take New York in this one.


New Orleans Saints (10-3) vs Baltimore Ravens (9-4)

This match-up could be the most exciting game on television this Sunday as both teams are fighting to gain control of their divisions.

The Saints are on a six consecutive win streak and have scored 30 or more points in five of those six contests.

The Ravens are coming off of a OT victory against the Texans on Monday and could carry that momentum into this week.

Sportsbook Spread: The Saints are given +1.5 points.

Prediction: Although the Ravens have performed exceptionally well this season, I am going to have to select the defending champions in this match-up.


New York Jets (9-4) vs Pittsburgh Steelers (10-3)

After falling short to the Miami Dolphins last week, the Jets look like a complete mess on the field.

Four of their nine wins have been decided by seven points or less and in those NFL odds games, New York managed to pull off the victories within the final minutes of regulation.

On the other hand, Pittsburgh is currently on a four game win streak. The Steelers rank fourth in the NFL in defensive total yards per game, giving up .5 yards more than the Jets, who rank third.

The Steelers are averaging 22.3 points per game to the Jets 21.0, but in New York's last two games, the team has managed to put up just 9 total points.

Spread: The Steelers are giving up six points to the Jets this week.

Prediction: Pittsburgh shouldn't have a problem dismantling the Jets this week.
