Week 15 NFL Futures Report 

Updated:

As we head into another week of football, it’s time for a look at Week 15 NFL futures! Despite there being just three weeks left of the regular season, we still have some competitive futures markets to investigate. 

Week 16 in the NFL officially got going on Thursday night as the Los Angeles Rams defeated the New Orleans Saints 30-22 at SoFi Stadium. However, Sports Hub is providing you with an update with its Week 15 NFL Futures Report. 

The NFL playoff race is seriously heating up now and the Rams took a huge step in securing their spot in the postseason on Thursday Night Football. What other teams will be looking for a final push down the stretch? I will be breaking down and analyzing the odds for the top NFL futures markets as we enter Week 16. 

Week 15 NFL Futures – Top Markets 

Since Week 1, I have been analyzing the odds for a host of top NFL futures markets. However, at this stage of the regular season, some of the markets have already been wrapped up. 

Both Offensive and Defensive Rookie of the Year awards have all but been determined at this point due to the superiority of C.J. Stroud (-2000) and Jalen Carter (-6000). However, both Offensive and Defensive Player of the Year is still looking competitive. 

Take a look at the full list of markets I will be examining in Week 15 NFL futures:

  • Super Bowl Winner 
  • AFC Champion
  • NFC Champion
  • MVP 
  • Offensive Player of the Year
  • Defensive Player of the Year

Super Bowl Winner

Week 15 NFL futures will perennially open with an examination of the Super Bowl winner market. First things first, let’s take a quick look at the odds for the top-ten contenders after Week 14: 

  • San Francisco 49ers (+250)
  • Baltimore Ravens (+600)
  • Kansas City Chiefs (+700)
  • Philadelphia Eagles (+700)
  • Miami Dolphins (+800)
  • Dallas Cowboys (+850)
  • Buffalo Bills (+1800)
  • Detroit Lions (+2000)
  • Jacksonville Jaguars (+2200)
  • Cleveland Browns (+4500)

There haven’t been many drastic changes in the prices for the Super Bowl LVIII winner from Week 14 to Week 15. The San Francisco 49ers remain the frontrunners as they easily dispatched the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday. 

The Niners’ position was strengthened further by the fact that fellow contenders the Philadelphia Eagles, the Dallas Cowboys and the Jacksonville Jaguars all suffered losses during Week 15. 

Check out the updated odds for the Super Bowl winner after week 15 here:

  • San Francisco 49ers (+220)
  • Baltimore Ravens (+550)
  • Kansas City Chiefs (+700)
  • Philadelphia Eagles (+800)
  • Miami Dolphins (+850)
  • Dallas Cowboys (+1000)
  • Buffalo Bills (+1200)
  • Detroit Lions (+2000)
  • Jacksonville Jaguars (+3000)
  • Cleveland Browns (+5500)

The Buffalo Bills are one of the hottest teams in the league right now. Their price to win the Super Bowl has been cut hugely over the past few weeks. They were as long as +3500 during Week 13. That was then slashed to +1800 last week, before being cut once more to +1200 following their triumph over Dallas last Sunday. Buffalo are the team to look out for in Week 15 NFL futures. 

AFC Champions

The Baltimore Ravens may feel they can take their foot off the gas as we head into the final few weeks of the regular season. They have already secured a playoff berth, but will still need to secure the No.1 seed to have a better path in the postseason. 

Here’s a reminder of the odds for the top-five candidates after Week 14:

  • Baltimore Ravens (+240)
  • Kansas City Chiefs (+300)
  • Miami Dolphins (+350)
  • Buffalo Bills (+900)
  • Jacksonville Jaguars (+1000)

The Ravens comfortably beat fellow AFC rivals the Jaguars on Sunday Night Football which has seen their odds get shorter from +240 to +215. As for Jacksonville, their price has lengthened from +1000 to +1300. 

Meanwhile, the Chiefs ended a two-game losing streak with a 27-17 triumph over a struggling New England Patriots team. Kansas City remains the second favorites to win the conference, despite the Miami Dolphins having a better record at 10-4. 

You can find the updated odds for the top-five contenders to win the AFC after Week 15 here: 

  • Baltimore Ravens (+215)
  • Kansas City Chiefs (+290)
  • Miami Dolphins (+370)
  • Buffalo Bills (+650)
  • Jacksonville Jaguars (+1300)

Despite currently sitting on the bubble in the playoff picture, the Bills’ price to win the AFC has been cut from +900 to +650. They will be hoping their momentum can carry them into the postseason, but they need to continue winning. That starts with a clash against the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday. 

NFC Champions 

Week 15 NFL futures will now examine the NFC champion market. The Niners, the Cowboys and the Eagles have all already secured a spot in the playoffs. However, the No.1 seed will be significant in giving one of them a better shot at going on to win the conference. 

Below is a reminder of the odds for the top-five candidates after Week 14:

  • San Francisco 49ers (+115)
  • Philadelphia Eagles (+330)
  • Dallas Cowboys (+400)
  • Detroit Lions (+950)
  • Minnesota Vikings (+5000)

San Francisco has even moved to minus money now to go on and win the NFC. The Eagles and Cowboys both suffered defeats last weekend. It looks as though it will take some doing for the Niners not to go on and win the conference. However, playoff football is different. 

Take a look at the updated prices for the NFC champion market after Week 15:

  • San Francisco 49ers (-110)
  • Philadelphia Eagles (+400)
  • Dallas Cowboys (+450)
  • Detroit Lions (+800)
  • Los Angeles Rams (+3000)

The Detroit Lions picked up a crucial victory last Sunday to beat the Denver Broncos 42-17. Denver had won six of their last seven games heading into the encounter, whilst Detroit had just lost to the Chicago Bears. That has seen the Lions’ price to win the NFC come in from +950 to +800. 

One team looking for a late playoff push is the Rams. Despite sitting at 3-6 after Week 9, they have been on fire since their Week 10 bye, winning five of their last six. Sean McVay’s team moved to 8-7 after their victory on Thursday. The Minnesota Vikings, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Seattle Seahawks all have a chance to match that record in Week 16. 

MVP

My first players’ futures market sees Week 15 NFL futures investigate the MVP odds. Let’s take a look at the prices for the top-ten contenders after Week 14:

  • Dak Prescott (+150) QB Dallas Cowboys
  • Brock Purdy (+175) QB San Francisco 49ers
  • Lamar Jackson (+500) QB Baltimore Ravens
  • Jalen Hurts (+800) QB Philadelphia Eagles
  • Josh Allen (+1400) QB Buffalo Bills
  • Tyreek Hill (+1600) WR Miami Dolphins
  • Patrick Mahomes (+1600) QB Kansas City Chiefs
  • Tua Tagovailoa (+2000) QB Miami Dolphins
  • Christian McCaffrey (+4000) RB San Francisco 49ers
  • C.J. Stroud (+8000) QB Houston Texans 

Who’d have thought Brock Purdy would be the market leader for MVP after Week 15 of the 2023 season? Well, I stated in my 5 NFL Bold Predictions for the 2023 Season that his price of +3500 was a great value bet. Now priced at -225 to win MVP, you could have been in for some serious profit if you backed him at the beginning of the campaign. 

You can see the most recent MVP odds after Week 15 below:

  • Brock Purdy (-225) QB San Francisco 49ers
  • Lamar Jackson (+500) QB Baltimore Ravens
  • Dak Prescott (+800) QB Dallas Cowboys
  • Christian McCaffrey (+900) RB San Francisco 49ers
  • Josh Allen (+900) QB Buffalo Bills
  • Jalen Hurts (+2500) QB Philadelphia Eagles
  • Patrick Mahomes (+2500) QB Kansas City Chiefs
  • Tyreek Hill (+2500) WR Miami Dolphins
  • Tua Tagovailoa (+2500) QB Miami Dolphins
  • Jared Goff (+10000) QB Detroit Lions

Look, we all know that the MVP award is slightly flawed. Although the Niners may be the best team in the league, Purdy has clearly not been the best player in the NFL this season. However, he has still won 11 games for the 49ers and has a passer rating of 119.0. 

If Lamar Jackson can have a strong end to the year, there’s a good chance he could be in with a shot, too. He is yet to reach the same standard in 2019 when he won MVP, but he has still impressed with Baltimore this year. 

The Dak Prescott hype train has ended after he disappointed in the Cowboys’ loss to the Bills. Dak failed to throw a touchdown, whilst he was picked off once and had a passer rating of just 57.7. His odds have gotten a lot longer from +150 to +800. He has an important matchup against the Dolphins coming up in Week 16. 

Offensive Player of the Year 

Over the past couple of weeks, I have been analyzing the OPOY and DPOY futures markets. Firstly, here’s a reminder of the odds for OPOY after Week 14: 

  • Tyreek Hill (-220) WR Miami Dolphins 
  • Christian McCaffrey (+150) RB San Francisco 49ers
  • Ceedee Lamb (+1800) WR Dallas Cowboys 
  • A.J. Brown (+4000) WR Philadelphia Eagles 
  • Jalen Hurts (+6000) QB Philadelphia Eagles 

Tyreek Hill was forced to miss the Fins’ Week 15 win over the New York Jets. As a result, Christian McCaffrey has now become the favorite to win OPOY. 

Here is an update on the odds for OPOY after Week 15: 

  • Christian McCaffrey (-165) RB San Francisco 49ers
  • Tyreek Hill (+110) WR Miami Dolphins 
  • Ceedee Lamb (+6286) WR Dallas Cowboys 
  • A.J. Brown (+7022) WR Philadelphia Eagles 
  • Brock Purdy (+7500) QB San Francisco 49ers

CMC hasn’t missed a single game in 2023 and it’s his clean injury record this season that has ultimately seen him lead the OPOY market in Week 15 NFL futures. Staying healthy was the only concern for him at the start of the season. McCaffrey is even the fourth favorite in the MVP race so it looks extremely likely that he will at least win OPOY now, with his price cut from +150 to -165. 

Defensive Player of the Year

My Week 15 NFL Futures Report will finish up by examining the DPOY market. It looks set to be an interesting battle for the award with just three weeks left. Below you can find the odds for the top-five after Week 14: 

  • Micah Parsons (-130) LB Dallas Cowboys 
  • Myles Garrett (+175) DE Cleveland Browns 
  • T.J. Watt (+500) LB Pittsburgh Steelers 
  • DaRon Bland (+1600) CB Dallas Cowboys 
  • Josh Allen (+2500) LB Jacksonville Jaguars

After Week 14, Micah Parsons moved to minus money to win DPOY. However, we still have three contenders all fighting to prove that they are the best defensive player in the league. 

Take a look at the updated odds through Week 15: 

  • Micah Parsons (+127) LB Dallas Cowboys 
  • Myles Garrett (+145) DE Cleveland Browns 
  • T.J. Watt (+360) LB Pittsburgh Steelers 
  • Danielle Hunter (+3000) DE Minnesota Vikings
  • Josh Allen (+3000) LB Jacksonville Jaguars

Parsons didn’t exactly have the best of games against the Bills last weekend and he hasn’t been quite as good over the last couple of weeks compared to his strong three-game stretch between Week 11 and Week 13. 

The Cowboys linebacker looks to be mainly battling with Myles Garrett to win the award. The Browns edge rusher has been phenomenal over the past couple of weeks, recording a total of 18 pressures. T.J. Watt is still in with a chance, too, and his price was slashed from +500 to +360 after he recorded five total pressures and two sacks against the Indianapolis Colts during Week 15.
