The Chicago Bears will upset the Packers, the Patriots will win their 22nd straight December home game and Dallas will fail to cover the spread at home for the 10th consecutive time.
That's if the Odds Shark NFL prediction computer is correct and its Week 15 NFL picks are better than last week's 9-7 ATS showing.
In Week 14, the computer was 10-6 SU and was solid picking over-unders (10-5 with a push). It picks the Bengals to start the week with a 26-16 win at Philadelphia on Thursday and for the Jets to win a 19-14 yawner on Monday night.
In between, a few long-time streaks will continue. Those Bengals are 8-0 ATS since 1980 against the Eagles, so that trend remains intact.
Miami is favored by eight points, but they are 0-7 ATS when they are favored by that many points since 2003.
The Giants have won seven straight at Atlanta and the computer picks them to win a 32-30 squeaker. Of course, the Falcons own a 10-game SU home win streak, which must be factored into handicapping models.
Dallas will lose at home to Pittsburgh, which will be the 10th straight time the Cowboys have failed to cover a spread at home. And the Broncos, riding a 9-game SU win streak when favored, will win in Baltimore, a team that just sacked its offensive coordinator.
