A pair of totals in the Raiders-Chargers and Browns-Bills matchups, and a bet on the side in Sunday night’s Bucs-Cowboys clash highlight the best last minute NFL picks for Week 15.Check out the plays here.

Raiders (-3) vs Chargers

Analysis: Oakland (27.5) and San Diego (26.9) roll out potent offenses, ranking third and fourth in the NFL in scoring. Expect both to put up better than average in this matchup, as each rank in the bottom half of scoring defenses, too. The Chargers, in fact, have allowed 26 points or more in all but three games this season. They held the Jaguars, Texans, and Broncos under this mark, three teams with woeful quarterbacks; good luck stopping MVP candidate Derek Carr.

San Diego’s offense certainly is hurt with running back Melvin Gordon out due to hip and knee injuries, but the fact of the matter is, it has scored 21 points or more in its last seven at home. The OVER is 4-0-1 with a number higher than 46 at Qualcomm Stadium this season. The average combined score is 60.6 points. Another barnburner is in store.

 Browns vs Bills (-10)

Analysis: Snow in Buffalo, what’s new. No weather is going to slow down the Bills from trampling all over the Browns. Head coach Rex Ryan’s squad has put the hurt on poor teams this season. It’s averaging 31.8 points per game in the five its been favored in the betting market, scoring 25 or more in each. With the Browns, Dolphins and Jets to close out the season look for Ryan’s team to make a laste run for the playoffs.

As for the Browns, their offense couldn’t have played any worse with Robert Griffin III back under center. The former Redskin tossed for only 104 yards on 12 of 28 passes in last week’s loss to the Bengals. Cleveland has scored a total of 39 points over their last four games, but it has squared off against some tough defenses (Ravens, Giants, Bengals, and Steelers). The Bills, in fact, are just one of four teams to allow more than 23 points per game entering a matchup with the Browns this year. Cleveland scored 20, 17, and 28 points in the other three respectively.

 Buccaneers vs Cowboys (-7)

Analysis: Playing in the NFC South, the Bucs have squared off against plenty of soft defenses this year. Quarterback Jameis Winston and company have not found the end zone often against the league’s elite units, though. They have faced three top 10 scoring defenses (Denver, K.C., and Seattle) and have put up four offensive touchdowns in 12 quarters. The team is averaging 13.3 points per game in this spot. Dallas enters Sunday night’s matchup with fifth best scoring defense in the NFL, allowing 18.6 points per game. 

There is no place like home. The Giants and Vikings held the Cowboys under 20 points the last two weeks, just the third time all season. Both games were on the road. At Jerry World, Dallas averages 27.5 points per game, scoring 27 or more in the four it kicked off as chalk.
