MINTY BETS: It's time to wrap up week 15 of the NFL, and we haven't even seen lines for week 16 yet. So here are our blind reactions in three, two, one. Ravens at Bengals. Bengals minus 2 and 1/2.

JARED QUAY: I know I'm biased here, but I don't care. I love Harbaugh. They're getting their pieces back, and they need this game to win the division. Ravens moneyline.

MINTY BETS: You know, the Ravens have shown that they are fighters. They have been playing through injury after injury after roster change. And I think they can pull this off. I like the Ravens as underdogs here, and I think they can win straight up as well.

- I want to bet a beer that the Ravens will win.

JARED QUAY: Bills at Patriots. Patriots minus 2 and 1/2.

MINTY BETS: Oh, Patriots all the way. I think the Bills are only good against bad teams. And the Patriots, although faced a tougher opponent in the Colts, I think the Patriots are the better team here and can win by possibly a score.

JARED QUAY: I'm going the opposite way, Bills moneyline here. It's hard to beat a team twice, especially within three weeks. I think the Bills are a better team. They just had the snow game kind of affected them. They'll win this one pretty easy.

MINTY BETS: It's hard to beat the same team twice. But if anyone can do it, Bill Belichick can do it.

JARED QUAY: Oh, Bill Belichick is overrated. Talk to the Colts. Colts almost shut them out. No, they didn't. The second half was bad.

- Yeah, it was bad.

JARED QUAY: Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs. Chiefs minus 10 and 1/2.

MINTY BETS: I know I typically have the fade Chiefs narrative, but they've been covering more than they haven't lately in the last several weeks. But I have to take the Steelers as big underdogs here. You cannot count out Mike Tomlin just yet. So I like them to come up in the second half here. They are a second-half team. So Steelers plus 10 and 1/2 all day.

JARED QUAY: I love the Chiefs. I've been betting them, making money. But at the same time-- no, no, no, the Steelers find a way. They can be down by 24 points, they're going to find a way to make it a competitive game. Very similar to the Ravens. I think plus 10 is too much. I think the Chiefs are a good team. But the Steelers suck at covering the run. But I think the Chiefs run game has really been bad this year, so I actually like the Steelers to cover plus 10 and 1/2.

- Go Steelers!

MINTY BETS: Dolphins at Saints. Saints minus 3.

JARED QUAY: The wrong team is favored here. Just my gut's telling me the Dolphins win this one in blowout fashion. The Dolphins have been playing good. They looked really bad in the first half of last week, but I do think they're a solid team, and they should be able to beat the Taysom Hill Saints.

MINTY BETS: I don't know how I feel about this game. I want to take the home team here and lay the 3 points, but I don't know if I can really trust the Saints. I feel like 3 points is a lot to cover against this Dolphins team. So I guess I'll go with you, Jared. I like Dolphins plus the points.

JARED QUAY: No, moneyline. Take moneyline, Minty. Make the extra money, Minty.

MINTY BETS: I need the insurance. I need the cushion.

JARED QUAY: I'll be your insurance. If they don't hit, I'll give you back up to $20 of your bet.
