NFL Week 16 Picks and Predictions

With only two weeks left in the NFL regular season there isn’t much time left to make some money before the playoffs. The odds have already been released for 14 out of the 16 games this week and we have picks for them all. Last week was a week that I’d like to forget and hopefully I’ll be able to do that by bouncing back with two wins with my best picks during week 16.

NFL Week 16 Lines and Picks

Carolina Panthers +14.5 over Pittsburgh Steelers (Loss)

Dallas Cowboys –7 over Arizona Cardinals (Loss)

Detroit Lions +3.5 over Miami Dolphins (Win)

NFL Week 16 Best Picks

Detroit Lions +3.5 vs. Miami Dolphins –3.5 (WIN)

Detroit Lions head to Miami this week to take on the Dolphins in a game without any playoff implications. Both teams haven’t had seasons that they’re happy with although the Lions are definitely looking up. Detroit comes into this game with a 1-6 record on the road while the Dolphins are sporting a 1-6 record at home. I’m not that surprised at the Lions road record this season, but there is no way I would have predicted the troubles that the Dolphins are having at home. Miami has been playing great defence lately and having only given up 17, 6 and 13 points in their past 3 games. Detroit will be looking to win their 3rd game in a row after defeating the Packers (7-3) and the Buccaneers (24-20). This game could go either way, but I’ll gladly take the hook and hope that the game stays within a FG.

Tennessee Titans +4.5 vs. Kansas City Chiefs –4.5 (WIN)

Kansas City Chiefs play an important game this week when they host the Tennessee Titans. The Chiefs have a 1-game lead on the Chargers right now and would like to keep it that way with a win at home. Kansas is a perfect 6-0 at home this season, so if they come to play like they usually do, there should be no problem winning the game against the Titans. Tennessee has been a disaster in the latter half of the season and although they’re coming off a big home win against the Texans, I can’t see them hanging with the Chiefs on the road. Kansas City should focus on getting their #1 running game going right out of the gate against the Titans 17th ranked rushing defence. If the running game stalls, Cassel shouldn’t have a problem throwing the ball against the 26th ranked passing defence. I like the Chiefs to run away with this game early and control the clock in the 2nd half while cruising to an easy cover.
