NFL Football Picks
With Derrick Henry being banged up, can we really expect the Titans to be able to get past that after relying on him so much to get them to where they are? The re-emergence of Texans defensive end JJ Watt may give Houston the emotional boost it needs to come out on top in this one.
There are numerous factors that could result in the Chiefs calling off the dogs, so this game is very weak with regards to betting value. With that being said, KC will likely start out strong “just in case” to assure that they get the best possible position in the playoffs.
The NFL’s regular season closes out with a one-sided matchup between the Miami Dolphins and New England Patriots where the Pats need a win to secure a first round bye in the NFL playoffs. The Patriots have absolutely dominated the Phins at Gillette Stadium, winning the last 10 games by an average of 19+ points. This week’s spread is -15.5 and we’re actually considering laying it!
The Week 16 matchup between the Packers and Vikings should be one heck of a battle, as both are trying to win the division. Green Bay has already clinched a playoff birth, while Minnesota has not. Expect a full effort from both squads Sunday!
Week 16 Sunday Night Football features one of the more bizarre point spreads we’ve seen in the 2019 NFL season as the Chiefs visit Soldier Field as a short -5 favorite. Oddsmakers are expecting a close game!
Week 16 presents us with an excellent Cowboys vs. Eagles matchup where both teams are 7-7 with the Eagles in the hunt for a playoff berth. Philly’s secondary is very vulnerable but their run defense is above average, making this a very interesting contest where Dak Prescott has struggled on the road at times and the team has leaned on Ezekiel Elliott as of late.
Two teams who have been statistically eliminated and that are out of the playoff picture go at it in Week 16 in Indianapolis. At this point, the Carolina Panthers seem to be playing for Christian McCaffrey to become the NFL’s first 1000 yard rusher and 1000 yard receiver. Their defense has stunk profusely and they can’t stop the run. The Colts, who are led by Frank Reich, stink but not quitters. They’ll be using the last two contests to determine who’ll be on next year’s roster.
Am I the only one who hates betting on these football teams? The best way to handicap this Week 16 matchup is to crap out two turds, write each team’s name on one, throw it at the wall and see which makes the bigger splatter! Helter Skelter/Jeckyll and Hyde are two things that come to mind Sunday when these teams meet. NOBODY can feel good about putting their hard earned money on this one!
Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson is projected to “have himself a day” Sunday at Qwest Field as the Arizona Cardinals secondary is a cross between a wet paper bag and a bug splattering on a windshield. I’d be more than surprised if one of the Hawks wide receivers AND the tight end position don’t go over 100 yards with at least a touchdown from each position.
Generally speaking, the thought of laying almost a touchdown with a 5-win team coming off a 3 point showing seems like financial suicide. The Matt Patricia and the Lions are that bad though!
If you’re confident of who will win or cover this game, we’d like to hire you to be a Predictem handicapper! We put out articles with opinions each week of the NFL season to help give you a better idea of who to bet on. Every now and then, we see a game like this that is truly unpredictable. Loot is giving his opinion here, but you’re on your own on this Week 16 turdfest!
1-13 meets 3-11! Woohoo! Luckily for us, the worst football game is better than the best day at work, so we’ll take it! The public are backing the Phins heavily here as many anticipate Bengal tank mode, but Mr. Franks isn’t seeing it that way!
Everybody is lovey-dovey with the Saints after Drew Brees captured the all time touchdown record. Keep in mind this is the same team that lost at home to the 49ers a couple weeks ago. The Tennessee Titans under head coach Mike Vrabel are the real deal, as evidenced by their +2.5 short underdog point spread. With that being said, Jay’s prediction won’t be either team as he likes the total.
Double digit divisional underdogs are not something to be taken lightly. Then again, Freddie Kitchens might be the worst coach of all time. With it being the end of the season and the Ravens potentially resting players, this game screams trap and the potential for a backdoor cover.
How’bout those Dirty Birds going into San Fran last week and doing the unthinkable? Conversely, many thought the Jacksonville Jaguars were left for dead after not being abe to stop ANYBODY, yet they went into Oakland and beat the heavily favored Raiders. We predict the Jags go back into garbage mode and the Falcons lay a whoopin’ here.
As there are multiple shades of the color red, the same can be said for the Washington Redskins with relation to how bad they are. They were REALLY bad early on, they transitioned into pretty bad, then just plain bad. They’ve been trending in the right direction towards a “D” grade and should be able to get it done at home in Week 16, assuming they’re not tanking for a better draft pick.
