NFL Week 16 odds, picks and predictions
Week 16 is here and we are one week away from the end of the season. It never seems to amaze me how fast the football year goes by. Even with being fully immersed in multiple fantasy leagues, playing Draft Kings, talking the talk with fellow football fans throughout the week, and simply breathing nothing but the pigskin since the season began, it still seems to fly right by you like DeSean Jackson up the sideline. Before you know it, playoffs and the Super Bowl are in the rear view. So lets enjoy the last two weeks and prepare for Wild Card weekend!
Here are my picks of the week:
Green Bay @ Arizona (-6)
Arizona hasn’t done well at home recently ATS, but I’m taking them today to cover vs the Pack.
Cardinals 28 Packers 21
Carolina (-6.5) @ Atlanta
If Carolina is a serious contender then they have to step on Atlanta quick and not over look this game. I expect them to get ahead early and rest some of their players.
Panthers 28 Atlanta 14
Cleveland (+11.5) @ Kansas City
The Kansas City Chiefs are rolling and I think that continues, but I think Cleveland will score just enough to keep it within the points.
Chiefs 24 Browns 13
Parlay Pick of the Week
Houston/ Tennessee (39.5) UNDER, Dallas/ Buffalo (42) UNDER, New Orleans (-3)
If I had to guess…
Chicago (+3) 27 Tampa Bay 23
Dallas (+6.5)* 17 Buffalo 20
Jacksonville 23 New Orleans (-3) 29
San Francisco 14 Detroit (-10) 30
Indianapolis 16 @ Miami (-2.5)* 19
New England (-2.5)* 27 New York Jets 19
Houston (-4) 19 Tennessee 10
St. Louis (+12) 16 Seattle 24
Pittsburgh (-10) 31 Baltimore 17
New York Giants (+7) 21 @ Minnesota 24
Cincinnati 17 Denver (-3.5)* 24
