The Dallas Cowboys (8-5) have won five straight games to put themselves in position to win the NFC East for the second time in three seasons. Meanwhile, the Indianapolis Colts (7-6) have won six of their last seven to keep their chances of making the postseason for the first time since 2014 alive.
The Colts are listed as consensus three-point home favorites at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com on the Week 15 NFL odds hosting the Cowboys in Sunday’s action.
Dallas has won the past three meetings with Indianapolis straight up by an average of 15 points. However, the Cowboys are also just 1-4 against the spread in their last five road games versus teams with winning records, and the Colts have won seven in a row SU as home favorites.
The Green Bay Packers (5-7-1) do not have much of a shot at getting to the playoffs, but they have won 15 of the previous 17 games against the NFC North-leading Chicago Bears (9-4), who are 5.5-point home favorites. The Bears can clinch the division title with a win over the Packers or a loss by the Minnesota Vikings, and they have covered their last five against NFC North opponents.
The Vikings (6-6-1) are still hoping to make the postseason despite two straight losses, and they will host the Miami Dolphins (7-6) as seven-point home favorites on Sunday. In fact, both teams have goals of making the playoffs, which is why this is such a key game. The Dolphins are coming off a shocking 34-33 upset win over the New England Patriots last week, and they have won the past three meetings with the Vikings.
The AFC East-leading Patriots (9-4) are still in line for one of the top two seeds in their conference but may need to beat the Pittsburgh Steelers (7-5-1) on the road Sunday in order to stay ahead of the Houston Texans due to a tiebreaker. New England is a 1.5-point road favorite at Pittsburgh and has won each of the last five games in the series. The Steelers will be trying to break a three-game losing streak as well, and they have won 11 of the last 13 times after falling in their most recent game at Heinz Field.
The Los Angeles Rams (11-2) have already clinched the NFC West, but they are still looking to earn the top seed in their conference. The Rams host the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles (6-7) as nine-point home favorites at sports betting sites on Sunday Night Football and lost last year’s meeting 43-35 in the game in which Carson Wentz suffered a season-ending knee injury. The Eagles are 5-0 SU and ATS in the past five meetings.
In addition, the Seattle Seahawks (8-5) will be trying to clinch a Wild-Card berth as another member of the NFC West in a divisional matchup with the San Francisco 49ers (3-10). The Seahawks are riding a four-game winning streak, and they are five-point road favorites visiting the 49ers, who have lost 10 straight in this series and gone 2-13 ATS in the previous 15. San Francisco is also 1-10 SU in its last 11 divisional games.
