Swinger's back with his Week 15 NFL picks as the regular season nears its completion & playoff seeds are sorted out. Let's see him get well this week with a razor sharp side and a white hot total.

2015 NFL Record (19-28-1 ATS)
I went 2-1 ATS in my sides, but once again I refuse to cease and desist from picking a total, although it's torturing me and anyone tailing my totals. Yes, many of you are on the fade train when it comes to my over/unders, and how could I possibly blame you as I fell once again last week with over 50½ in the Saints/Bucs game that combined for a money burning 41 points. Well, ladies and gents, all we can do is get back up on the pony and keep riding. Yahoo!

Falcons +3 vs. Jaguars
I have been chasing the Falcons for several weeks now and it has been a lesson in futility. But I'm going back to the poison, well, because I can resist anything but temptation and this team is tempting me once again as the NFL odds makers are giving me a field goal head start against...the Jaguars!

Listen, if you torture the numbers long enough, they will confess to almost anything, and apparently the men who set the lines understand that Joe Q. Public and his band of merry squares will be lining up to fade the Falcons. But I am no square and will declare here and now that if Matt Ryan cannot torch this woeful Jacksonville secondary, then it is time he hung up the cleats. Julio Jones will have a huge day, so all you fantasy draft geeks out there take note. I love the fact that the Falcons got blown out last week by the best team in football because it just gives me an extra point or two that I wouldn't have had before - not that I'm gonna need a one.

This defense has not played bad at all during this losing streak, with the exception of last week, and they are ranked 14th in the league in points allowed. Meanwhile, the Jaguars are giving up almost four touchdowns per game, which should be enough meat on that bone for Matty Ice and the Falcons to return back to the mean because we know this offense is better than what they have shown.

Total - Cardinals vs. Eagles
We all know the Cardinals can score, and score they will, against a lousy Philadelphia secondary. Carson Palmer has three top line receivers to choose from in Larry Fitzgerald on one side and Malcolm Floyd on the other with John Brown in between. This will be a nightmare for the Eagles.

Now on the flipside, Sam Bradford is back and one thing he can do is recognize blitz packages, which is what the Cards love to do. They blitz constantly and a veteran quarterback like Bradford will time his passes to avoid the swarming pass rush and hit a quick target off to the side. This is how Philly will score and they will put points on the board. Hell, even the Browns put up 20 on Arizona, and Philly will do better than that, which is why we see this total flying over the posted total.

The Woodman’s Corner (10-4 ATS)
The Woodman continues to bust bookmakers all over the planet hitting at over 71 percent and killed it again last week as he took Tom Terrific and the New England Patriots to bury the Texans in Houston. Another easy cover as the Pats rolled 27-6 and you never even had to sweat it. The Woodman makes your NFL picks easy and he's got another one this week for Sunday afternoon with the Cincinnati Bengals -4½ over the 49'ers in San Francisco at GTBets.
