NFL Week 15 - Quick Hit Picks

Cincinnati at St. Louis (+7, 38.5): This one is definitely a public favorite with Kellen starting at QB for the Rams. I just see a Bengals team who has taken their licks against tough division opponents and looking to stay in the playoff hunt.  Cincy has a balanced attack and a solid D, which should equal success on the road against a horrid Rams team.
The Pick: Cincinnati -7

Detroit at Oakland (+1, 47.5): Detroit needs the W to stay in the Wild Card race. Suh is back on the defensive line and the Lions should be able to force Palmer into bad throws.
The Pick: Detroit -1

Carolina at Houston (-6, 45.5): The Texans defense is one of, if not the best in the league right now, and Cam and co. haven't really seen anything like it.  Houston will grind it out on the ground with Foster and Tate, and Newton will struggle to find his rhythm.
The Predicted Score: Houston Wins 24-17
The Picks: Houston -6 and Under 45.5

New England at Denver (+9, 47.5): To me this line seems to grossly disrespect the Broncos defense and playing in Mile High stadium.  Don't get me wrong, I'm not expecting Tebow to light up the scoreboard, but it wouldn't surprise me to see a handful of TDs against a porous Patriots D.
The Pick: Denver +9
