    With three weeks remaining in the NFL regular season, we pause to look at some of the more interesting games in Week 15 to see how the current lines got where they are today.

    Plus fun prop bets for the NFL including the Browns, 49ers and Steelers.

    Browns vs. Bengals


    One touchdown and eight interceptions across four games have cost Brian Hoyer his job. Johnny Manziel will make his first professional start Sunday against division rival Cincinnati.

    The AFC North leading Bengals opened as two point road favorites. The money is split on which side will cover but Cleveland became a one point favorite after the former Heisman winner was announced as the starter.

    Johnny Manziel Total TD Passes Week 15
    • Over/Under: 1.5

    This season Johnny Football has dropped back to pass 11 times but only attempted nine passes, completing five for 63 yards. We project Manziel to complete just less than 60 percent of his passes for 1.1 passing touchdowns on average.

    Seahawks vs. 49ers


    Seattle dominated San Francisco on Thanksgiving and followed that performance by manhandling the NFC East leading Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday. The 49ers, after the embarrassing loss to the Hawks, were further humiliated and most likely knocked out of the playoffs by the Oakland Raiders in Week 14.

    The defending Super Bowl Champions opened as 7.5 point home favorites. Over 80 percent of the public is on the Seahawks to cover. Seattle is now a 10 point favorite over San Francisco. This is the first time in the Jim Harbaugh era that the 49ers are double-digit underdogs.

    Will Colin Kaepernick throw a 4th quarter TD Pass Week 15?
    • Yes: +300
    • No: -500

    Colin Kaepernick's star has dimmed. Just two years removed from a Super Bowl appearance, the young quarterback has struggled and is taking blame for the 49ers poor season. Through 13 games, Kaepernick has yet to throw a touchdown pass in the fourth quarter.

    Steelers vs. Falcons


    One team is 8-5, the other 5-8 but both are in contention for the playoffs. Pittsburgh is a half-game behind Cincinnati for the AFC North lead. Atlanta is tied with New Orleans in the NFC South.

    The Steelers opened as small favorites (-1) and are now flirting with becoming field goal favorites on the road.

    Atlanta is 1-8 this season against non-division opponents. Pittsburgh averages 21.7 points on the road, almost two touchdowns fewer than when the Steelers play at home. Which trend will continue?

    Neither team can afford a loss, yet one team's playoff hopes could be dashed.

    Will Le'Veon Bell record 200 or more yards from scrimmage for the 4th straight week?
    • Yes: +450
    • No: -700

    In the Steelers last three games, Le'Veon Bell has totaled 711 yards and five touchdowns. Bell joined Hall of Famer Walter Payton as the only running backs to post at least 200 yards from scrimmage in three consecutive games.

    The Predictalator

    The Predictalator is the most advanced sports forecasting software available today because it has the ability to account for all of the relevant statistical interactions of the players, coaches, officials, home field advantage and weather in each game.

    Picks for every game, including our Play Value Key and Calculator recommendations for optimal bankroll management and access to the Play Analyzer can be purchased in the Shop or by game here.

    05/10/2017 Highlight: With baseball season now into its second month, we can leverage our ResultsFinder tool to profile our season-to-date numbers. MLB sides and totals continue to remain extremely profitable despite a recent run of bad variance to start May. The Predictalator's record of 272-250 on sides and totals this season doesn't look all that impressive, but that's because the simulations have sided with underdogs more often than favorites. Through May 9, the Predictalator has generated $547 for an average $50 bettor. "Normal" or better sides, totals, and run lines (our strongest edges) are 14-10 (+$118) season-to-date.

    The NBA Playoffs continue on in the Second Round and the Predictalator has been profitable on both sides and totals in this year's postseason. Despite being just 16-19 (45.7%) ATS in the NBA Postseason, the Predictalator has generated $46 of total profit, which is a testament to our play value recommendations. Totals have been the real moneymaker in this postseason though, as all playabale totals are 19-15 (55.9%) for a solid profit of $168.

    The NHL Playoffs have featured some very tight lines posted by oddsmakers, which has led to lower volume for the Predictalator. That hasn't let to less profits though. The Predictalator has posted 10 NHL positions (ML, O/U, or PL) in May, going 8-2 (80%) on those positions for a profit of $87. It is rare to find a big edge in the NHL this late in the year, but the Predictalator continues to chip away on small edges to provide solid returns.
