The NFL heads into Week 15 with the playoff picture coming into focus. The Eagles have clinched a playoff berth and could clinch the NFC East in the next week or two. This week brings five clinching scenarios, opening on Thursday Night Football with the 49ers in position to clinch the NFC West with a win.

Four of this week’s games feature both teams sitting above .500 while another four feature both teams sitting below .500. It makes picking the games a little more difficult with things a little tighter. We have some big spreads, led by the Chiefs as 14-point favorites against the Texans. We also have two spreads of a single point with the Jets -1 against the Lions and the Patriots -1 against the Raiders.

With all that in mind, we’re back with straight-up picks for Week 15 of the regular season. We pick each game’s winner, and then slot the picks based on confidence levels — high, medium, low, and no. A game with three asterisks (***) after it indicates a game where I’m picking the betting underdog to get the win. Last week, I went 9-4 overall. I was 2-0 on my high confidence picks, 3-3 on medium confidence picks, 3-0 on low confidence picks, and 1-1 on no confidence picks.
