Want to get in on some more NFL betting action for Week 15? We've got two more picks you should strongly consider adding to your collection of picks.

Seattle Seahawks vs. New York Giants

The Seahawks can't be happy with their close loss to division rival San Francisco last weekend, so it will be interesting to see how they respond here in Week 15.

MetLife Stadium will be a treacherous place to be, with some wintery conditions set to hit the area overnight and early in the morning.

Though that type of weather should benefit the Giants, it's Seattle that's a significant favorite this afternoon. They're giving away 7.5 points to New York, while the O/U has settled at 42. The Seahawks are 11-2 SU and 9-4 ATS and the Giants are 5-8 SU and 5-8 ATS.

Seattle has been way better this season, there's no questioning that, but we believe there's good value on New York in this NFL betting spot.

The Giants were pretty terrible against San Diego last weekend, yet they're still 5-2 SU (4-3 ATS) over their past seven games. They've beaten Minnesota (23-7), Philadelphia (15-7), Oakland (24-20), Green Bay (27-13) and Washington (24-17).

Bad weather should translate into a lot of sloppy play and conservative game-plans, so we feel a lot safer about taking the underdog in this kind of situation. Seattle will most likely win straight up, but we find it hard to believe they'll turn this thing into a blowout.

So while the Seahawks have covered in four consecutive games, we see that streak coming to an end in Week 15. We like the points that come with the Giants.

NFL Pick: New York Giants +7.5


Arizona Cardinals vs. Tennessee Titans

Losers of two straight (by a combined 31 points), four of five, and seven of nine, the Titans could really use a win in Week 15.

They have a good shot of getting it done at home to Arizona, though the NFL odds show the Cardinals favored by 2.5 points. Some books are offering up a line of three, so keep checking to find the best value possible.

We want to talk about Tennessee a little more to help you understand why we like them this weekend.

Over their past six games, the Titans have actually played good football. They beat St. Louis and Oakland on the road and lost by a combined five points to Indianapolis and Jacksonville. Tennessee lost by eight to the Colts but were actually leading for a good portion of that game, and they were also on top of Denver before collapsing in the second half.

This Sunday we think the Titans will stay the course for the entire game and get their first win in three weeks. They've been battling hard but just haven't been able to put it all together. Ryan Fitzpatrick has been doing a serviceable job and is surrounded by no shortage of weapons (Chris Johnson, Kendall Wright, Nate Washington, Delanie Walker). Even rookie Justin Hunter has been contributing lately.

What's more, practically all of Arizona's success has come at home. While they're an impressive 6-1 SU at University of Phoenix Stadium, they've been far from stellar on the road, where they're 2-4 SU.

Their playoff hopes are gone, but we expect the Titans to show some pride at LP Field. We're adding another underdog to our NFL picks for Week 15.

NFL Pick: Tennessee Titans +2.5
