Week 15 NFL Picks Against the Spread (Trifone)

Every week, four of our contributors pick between two and five games each and assign a number of units (one to five) to their selection based on their confidence in the pick.

With that said, here are John Trifone's Week 15 NFL picks against the spread:
Buffalo Bills -3.5 over Miami Dolphins (5 units)

Miami is coming off winning their Super Bowl over the Patriots on Monday night. They now have a short week to go on the road to Buffalo, who has everything to play for to try and sneak in the playoffs. I expect a big letdown spot, or really just a return to form, from Miami, so I think the Bills cruise here.

Seattle Seahawks -1 over Los Angeles Rams (4 units)

Russell Wilson has been on fire and is likely the league MVP at this point in the season. Seattle is typically very good at home and this is a must-win for them. The Rams are a tough team but I think the Seahawks win this one by a field goal or more.

San Francisco 49ers -2 over Tennessee Titans (5 units)

It’s not often you see a three-win team favored over an eight-win team, but the line reflects how bad the Titans are, even at 8-5. I was high on them going into the year, but Marcus Mariota has been a disappointment and the play calling has not played to their strengths. Jimmy G looks like he could be the guy for San Francisco. The offense has had some trouble scoring touchdowns, but they’ve been moving the ball well. I like the Niners to win this one and give a big hit to the Titans playoff chances.
