It’s Week 15 of the NFL regular season and there’s still plenty to play for as the postseason looms large. First up, it’s one of the AFC leaders, Tennessee, taking on a Pittsburgh team scrambling to stay in the playoff race. 

Tom Carnduff of The Sporting Life gave us his thoughts…

6pm: Titans @ Steelers

TV: Sky Sports NFL

Titans -1.5 on handicap

The early game on Sky on Sunday is a huge AFC clash. The Steelers are starting to nosedive under their veteran QB, Ben Roethlisberger. The Steelers D is also starting to struggle, the Vikings put up a whopping 458 yards on them last week. Tennessee have had their own issues, but the running game is purring again after losing Derrick Henry, and I expect the Titans to simply overpower the ailing Steelers on Sunday and easily pass the -1.5 handicap.

D’Onta Foreman anytime TD

The Henry injury opened the door for some of Tennessee’s backups to shine, and it is D’Onta Foreman who has benefitted the most. Foreman rushed 13 times for 47 yards and a touchdown, adding two receptions for 15 yards in the Titans’ Week 14 win over the Jaguars. Back Foreman to find the endzone again against a Steelers’ D that was gashed for 242 yards on the ground last week.

9.26pm: Packers @ Ravens

TV: Sky Sports NFL

Packers -4.5

Sky will be showing the fascinating clash between the Packers and Ravens and it will pay to keep the faith with the punter’s pal, Aaron Rodgers, and the rampant Green Bay Packers. The Packers lead the league in covering against the spread, and with Lamar Jackson questionable, I expect this trend to continue. Rodgers is playing at his MVP level and will look to keep the good times rolling against a Baltimore outfit that has lost their last two games. This may be a must-win game for the Ravens, but the Packers will have too much for them and should be able to cover the current line of -4.5

Davante Adams anytime TD

Davante Adams had a slow start to the season, but he has really started to click lately. Adams caught 10-of-13 targets for 121 yards and two touchdowns in the Packers’ Week 14 win over Chicago. Baltimore has the best defence against the rush in the entire NFL – allowing just 85.5 yards per game. This will benefit Adams even more as Rodgers will be force-feeding him the ball. Adams has had over 100 receiving yards in his last three games and scored a brace in two of those. Adams is the obvious selection in the first and anytime TD markets.
