Blazin' 5: Colin Cowherd Gives His Five Best NFL Bets For Week 15 (December 13th) (Full Segment at Bottom of Page)
Colin's 2019 Blazin' 5 Record Through 14 Weeks: 36-32-2 (Last week 4-1)
Seahawks at Panthers (SPREAD: SEA -6)
"I'm taking Seattle -6. They're an excellent road team and I'm picking the Seahawks to win by more than six. I'm told that Ron Rivera's firing did not go over well in the locker room and I think David Tepper made a mistake on that and will pay the price. Don't worry about the road with Seattle, Russell Wilson has been a better road quarterback than home quarterback. On the road he's completing 70% of his throws and has put up a 103 passer rating. Here's the thing that would scare you if you're a Carolina fan -- Seattle's defense has 29 takeaways, that's third best in the NFL. Carolina gives it away more than almost anyone else in the NFL and turnovers will be a factor. Seattle wins 28-20."
Colin's Pick: Seahawks (-6)
Bears at Packers (SPREAD: GB -4.5)
"I'm going to take the Bears +4.5. Do you know that Green Bay, even with that great record, has been OUTGAINED this year? Mitch Trubisky has limitations but since Week 10 Matt Nagy and the staff have figured out what works and what doesn't. He's up to a 66% completion percentage, a passer rating in the mid-90's, and he's run for a couple touchdowns. The Bears defense the last two years versus Green Bay has only given up 17 points per game against Aaron Rodgers. I like the coach for the Bears and the defense for the Bears; bet the number here. It's too many points to give the Bears. I'm going to take Green Bay to win at Lambeau on a late field goal, 24-23."
Colin's Pick: Bears (+4.5)
Texans at Titans (SPREAD: TEN -3.5)
"I'm going to take the Texans +3.5. I have a rule -- one NFL team every week is humiliated and just has their doors blown off. As long as that team has a good quarterback, take them the following week when most fans bail on them. The Texans are fine. Are they inconsistent? Oh, God, yes. Are they bad? Oh, NO. Following a loss this year they're 4-0, averaging over 28 a game, and rushing for over 130 yards per game. Their offense is ranked 9th overall in the NFL and they are all over the map, but this is a MUST-WIN for them. I like Tennessee and we're going nuts on Ryan Tannehill but I'm taking the Texans to win 27-26."
Colin's Pick: Texans (+3.5)
Jaguars at Raiders (SPREAD: OAK -6.5)
"I'm taking the Raiders -6.5. I think the Jaguars have already quit on their head coach Doug Marrone and the minute they traded Jalen Ramsey it didn't play well in that locker room. Not only are the Jaguars losing but they're losing against the spread and not even tackling well anymore. On the road they're atrocious, and don't forget that this is the last game for the Raiders in Oakland. This is going to be a team who wants to celebrate and this is going to be a very big game. It's a celebration of Oakland and the Raiders, and this team is going to come out with their hair on fire and play a great game. I'm picking Raiders 33, Jaguars 23 in a game that won't feel close."
Colin's Pick: Raiders (6.5)
Rams at Cowboys (SPREAD: LAR -1.0)
“I like the Rams -1 and basically for one reason -- when veteran defensive coordinators, Wade Phillips: Rams, face a young newbie, Kellen Moore: 31, it's been a mismatch. It's not the better teams beating Dallas, it's the most veteran defensive coordinators OWNING Kellen Moore. The Rams are a very good road team and are 5-1, while the Cowboys have lost four of five. The offense for the Rams has turned it around. Since Jalen Ramsey has arrived in Week 7, the Rams lead the NFL in sacks and are third for least fewest yards allowed. I'm picking the Rams to win 28-23.
Colin's Pick: Rams (-1)
Bills at Steelers (SPREAD: PIT -2.0)
I'm taking Buffalo +2 at Pittsburgh. These teams are very similar: excellent coaching staffs and most of the talent on defense, but I get a significantly better quarterback with the Bills and I get points. This 'Duck' guy on Pittsburgh is an adorable story, I mean the guy won the Alabama state duck calling contest, but Pittsburgh's offense since Week 10 is atrocious. The Bills defense has held their opponents to 21 points or less in 11 of their 13 games, and that includes playing teams like the Patriots and Ravens. This defense for Buffalo is exceptional and this offense for Pittsburgh is a mess. Bills win 24-13."
Colin's Pick: Bills (+2)
