Place Your Bets: Week 15

If you live in Nevada, Oregon, Montana or Delaware, you're in luck. Otherwise, go to Canada or Europe and get your bet on for the NFL weekend! All games are Sunday unless otherwise noted.

1. Oakland (+10.0) at Kansas City — The Raiders have been playing somewhat good as of late, and the Chiefs haven't been very good and took a massive blow defensively with the loss of star safety Eric Berry, who was diagnosed with lymphoma. Derek Carr has earned the trust of the Raiders' coaches as their QB of the future, and he should have a decent game and help keep it close even if the Raiders don't win.

2. Washington at New York Giants (-6.5) — There's slam dunks and then there's this. The Redskins are in a world of hurt and have looked awful while having one of the worst quarterback situations in recent memory going on right before our eyes. The Giants have just four wins this year, but they still have some players, unlike the three-win Redskins.

3. Jacksonville at Baltimore (-14.0) — Two-touchdown favorites rarely pay off, but in this instance, we like the chances. The Ravens are playing well and even though their defense has been a bit shaky recently, it won't matter against the Jaguars, who lost rising running back star Denard Robinson for the season and will turn to Toby Gerhart. Yes, Toby Gerhart.

4. San Francisco at Seattle (-10.0) — Like the Cowboys and Eagles, these two teams met two weeks ago in San Francisco in a game the Seahawks won easily on the road. This week, they meet again in the toughest venue in the NFL in Seattle. Look for the Seahawks to roll in what could be a final meeting for quite some time between Pete Carroll and Jim Harbaugh.

5. Dallas (+3.5) at Philadelphia — Just like the above game, the home team won the first meeting as the road team two weeks ago and did it in convincing fashion. There were some factors working against the Cowboys in that Thanksgiving Day game, most notably that Tony Romo wasn't able to have his customary rest day in the middle of the week leading up to the game. Things will be better Sunday night. The Cowboys might not win, but if they don't, it will surely be closer than their last meeting.

Last week: 3-2. 2014 season: 28-37.
