Week 15 of the NFL season is going to be over before you know it.

The only thing you will remember more than your favorite team winning or losing is how much cash you made or lost gambling on them.

Let’s take a look at some of the best bets you can place this week and make sure you get paid big. 

New Orleans Saints (-8) at Minnesota Vikings

The Saints aren’t going to lose this game, and they more than likely aren’t going to let the Vikings—and their No. 27 rated passing defense (via NFL.com)—come anywhere near them on the scoreboard.

Drew Brees is throwing for more yards per game than any QB in the NFL and has been brilliant for the Saints this season.

I would certainly not bet against him. Bet against a team that has nothing to play for but draft position in the coming offseason. 

New England Patriots (-7.5) at Denver Broncos

It seems the public agrees that New England is the vastly superior team in this matchup.

They went from -5 to -7.5 over these last few days, but are still a lock to cover.

Tim Tebow and his flair for the dramatic have been exciting to watch against some lesser teams, but it ends today.

This game could get out of hand and be reminiscent of the Broncos vs. Lions game that Detroit won 45-10. 

New York Jets (+3) at Philadelphia Eagles

The Jets need this win to continue their path to the playoffs, while the Eagles are playing for nothing more than pride in an NFC East they threw away weeks ago.

Philly has been terrible as a favorite this season, and should never be bet on when they are giving away points.

They aren’t a good team and they won’t cover, so go with the Jets to get paid and cover the spread.
