Opening Trending NFL Odds Week 16

Saturday, December 21, 2019

Houston Texans vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: NFLN
Week 16 Spread: PK

The Texans are in control of their playoff destiny, but Tampa Bay has won four straight while scoring 28 points or more in each contest and 35 or more in three of those contests. It won’t be pretty, but Houston gets the win.

Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots -6½
at 4:30 PM ET
TV: NFLN
Week 16 Spread: New England -6½

The Patriots got back in the win column by smacking Cincinnati around this past weekend, but Buffalo has been far more impressive this season and the Bills have a defense that can keep it close against anyone! I like Josh Allen and company to cover the chalk by the narrowest of margins.

Los Angles Rams vs. San Francisco 49ers
at 8:15 PM ET
TV: NFLN
Week 16 Spread: San Francisco -6½

The Rams came up small when it mattered most by by getting routed by mediocre Dallas on Sunday. With Frisco playing at home and still holding on to hopes that they can win the top seed in the NFC, Jimmy G and company are the pick to get it done with room to spare.

Oakland Raiders vs. Los Angeles Chargers
at 4:05 PM ET
TV: CBS
Week 16 Spread: LA Chargers -6½

The Chargers have lost four of five and got routed by Minnesota 39-10 on Sunday. Still, I like the Bolts to hold it down at home against a reeling Raiders team that has gone belly up by dropping four straight while scoring 21 points or less in each contest.

New Orleans Saints vs. Tennessee Titans
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX
Week 16 Spread: New Orleans -1

After hosting (and beating) Indianapolis n Week 15 on Monday night, I’m expecting Drew Brees and company to do likewise against Tennessee after the Titans had their winning ways snapped in their 24-21 loss against Houston on Sunday. It won’t be a cakewalk, but the Saints pull out a thriller.

Baltimore Ravens vs. Cleveland Browns
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS
Week 16 Spread: Baltimore -7

Baker Mayfield got outplayed by Kyler Murray in Sunday’s embarrassing 38-24 loss against Arizona and now, it looks like the Browns have absolutely no chance of beating likely league MVP Lamar Jackson and the incendiary Baltimore Ravens in this AFC North divisional battle.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles
at 4:25 PM ET
TV: FOX
Week 16 Spread: Dallas -1

The Boys snapped a three-game skid by pounding the Rams senseless en route to a stunning 44-21 win on Sunday. Philly won its second straight by getting past Washington 27-27 in Week 15. With the Birds at home, completely desperate, looking to snap a four-game skid against the ‘Boys and win an NFC East title that has been up for grabs all season, I’ve got to believe Carson Wentz and company will get it done in the City of Brotherly Love in this one!

Arizona Cardinals vs. Seattle Seahawks
at 4:25 PM ET
TV: FOX
Week 16 Spread: Seattle -10

While I love Kyler Murray and I predicted Arizona’s win over Cleveland this past weekend, there’s no way the Cardinals are getting past Russell Wilson and a Seattle Seahawks squad that is now in first place in the NFC playoff race and playing at home in this huge Week 16 NFC West divisional battle.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Chicago Bears
at 8:20 PM ET
TV: NBC
Week 16 Spread: Kansas City -4

Chicago put up a good effort in their hard-fought 21-13 loss against Green Bay, but the Bears just don’t have enough offensive firepower to keep up with Patrick Mahomes and a Kansas City Chiefs team that can put points on the board in the blink of an eye.

Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings
at 8:15 PM ET
TV: ESPN
Week 16 Spread: Minnesota -4½

The Packers managed to take care of business at home against Chicago, but the Bears can barely score the ball, so their Week 15 win should be taken with a grain of salt. Aaron Rodgers and company will get a much stiffer test against Minnesota’s stingy defense in this week 16 NFC North battle and I see it as a test the Packers fail.
