2015 NFL Expert Picks and predictions Week 21

NFL Pickwatch is the home of NFL picks and predictions on the internet. We track the experts from ESPN, FOX, CBS, Yahoo, NFL Network, USA Today, Profootballfocus, Bleacher Report and many other places to find out who is most accurate. We track both straight up and against the spread picks, as well as preseason predictions and more. If that’s not enough, we also allow you to sign up and add your own picks that can be tracked throughout the season!

It’s the NFL offseason, and here at Pickwatch we always ensure that we use this time to add new features. We’ve got a lot of new additions coming before September, and we want to tell you more about all of them.

Below you can see the cumulative final standings of the 2014 season (including playoffs). Soon, we’ll allow you to make your week 1 picks for 2015 on this page, but for now,  here’s a list of new features we plan to add in the coming weeks and months. We hope you check back to get used to these features before September! As always – register here for more updates and to make your own picks.

NEW FEATURES 2015:
  • Prediction Monitor – Our new system allows us to track any prediction about any team, player or subject. You can filter predictions by year, experts, teams, subjects and players.
  • Draft Coverage – Every Mock in one place. We’ll also allow you to make your own mock draft from December onwards.
  • Historical Draft Predictions – We’re going back through the archives to tell you what the experts really thought before NFL players were drafted.
  • Player Performance Picks – Important for fantasy players, not only will we track expert predictions about players, we’ll let you make your own predictions for each game!
  • New Team and matchup hubs – find all our stats for both ATS and straight up picks in one place, and make your own picks!
  • Graphical updates across the site

Of course, there are also a whole host of minor tweaks we’ll be making to the way our weekly expert picks are displayed based on your feedback last season. We’re also aiming to launch our College Football site over the summer too!

If you have any queries about these, or want to suggest a new feature, leave us a comment below. We thank all of you for your ongoing support. With over 5m hits during the 2014 season, we know how many of you enjoy our site and our aim is to be even better next year!

244 thoughts on “2015 NFL Expert Picks and predictions

  1. Hate to point out another discrepancy, but you have Ditka picking the Ravens. ESPN.com’s NFL Expert Picks has him Picking the Ravens. I notice a little bit of a Ravens bias here.

    1. No that’s fine, thanks for pointing it out – Man, I hate ESPN (or at least whoever enters their picks).

      I was going to tweet earlier while looking at their page that only 3 ESPN experts picked the Ravens. Last week Cris Carter’s pick for the Indy and Cinci game flipped 3 times (check out the comments here):

      http://nflpickwatch.com/expert-pick-change/

      Guaranteed no bias, we just sometimes can’t keep up with their crazy changes. I wouldn’t mind, except Ditka’s picks were the last in out of everyone at ESPN!

      Anyway thanks – if you spot anything, let us know. We audit on Saturday and Sunday

  2. Jamey Eisenberg’s picks on here appear to be his “Against the Spread” picks. His “Straight Up” picks according to CBSSports.com were:

    New England, Seattle, Green Bay, and Denver.

    1. Hello – thanks for this. Can guarantee this was a change at CBS’s end, it definitely had the Ravens logo (rather than the abbreviation) and I found this notable at the time as he was the only CBS expert to pick the Ravens. Until he didn’t.

      Cheers for the heads up.

  3. Accuscore actually has Patriots to win, not Ravens. Game preview shows a 58% chance for NE to win, and Balt. just 41%. The playoff bracket that they put out has 53% Ravens, but this is inconsistent with the preview, and seems unlikely to be accurate given the game is at NE.

  4. Sorry again, but Bleacher report had typo, and Bengals/Browns pick was mis-labeled and were reversed. Think Bleacher report has corrected it now:

    Bengals: Bowen, Davenport, Freeman, Frenz, Gagnon, Hansen, Kruse, Miller, Schottey, Sobleski, Tomlinson

    Browns: Hangst, McCown, Schalter, Simms, Tanier

    1. Indeed – this has been fixed, thanks for the heads up. We tend not to check B/R too much because it’s all done ‘by hand’ so we wouldn’t expect any pick changes – in fact when they do, the B/R staff tend to change them with us anyway!

      Cheers

    1. I think one pattern is emerging over the last few years – Jackson, Carter and a couple of others at ESPN tend to put their full slate of picks in to meet the Thursday deadline and then change lots of picks at the weekend. We appreciate people giving us a shout to get them changed.

      We will still continue with a Sunday audit to pick up anything we haven’t already been made aware of.

      Cheers, Shaun

  5. Sunday Pick update:

    ESPN

    TeamRankings: Changed WAS to STL, changed ARI to KC
    Numberfire: Changed TEN to NYG
    Mike Golic: Changed TEN to NYG, changed CLE to IND
    Eric Allen: Changed from BAL to MIA
    Mike Ditka: Changed from BUF to DEN

    CBS

    Dave Richard from TEN to NYG

    Accuscore

  6. When reviewing a “previous” week, it would be nicer if “season” totals were only those totals through the week you’re reviewing (rather than “future” weeks as well).
