NFL Week 16 Picks Against the Spread

NFL Week 16 Picks Against the SpreadMerry Christmas everyone.  I have been getting into the habit of posting my football picks on Saturdays, but all of the football action is today due to the holiday. All I can do at this point is throw up some quick picks. Not a whole lot of games that I like anyway. We’ll have to tease the Pats and Ravens and go with the Panthers over the Bucs.

TEASER: PATRIOTS (-2) over Miami w/ RAVENS (-4) over Browns

We have two home teams with big spreads to cover that should be a lock to win as they’re both jocking for playoff position in the AFC. The Patriots should take care of business at home over the Dolphins and the Ravens should take care of business against the Browns.

Prediction: Patriots 27 – Dolphins 20

Prediction: Ravens 27 – Browns 13

Pick Against the Spread: Patriots (-2) and Ravens (-4) Teaser (Confidence: 3/5)

CAROLINA PANTHERS (-9) over Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The Bucs have been awful losing 8 straights games and going 1-7 ATS in that stretch. The Panthers dominated the Bucs 3 weeks ago when they played in Tampa 38-19. I don’t see any reason why this week should be different. The Panthers defense is a huge liability and can let you down, but there’s no doubt the Panthers will outscore the Bucs here. The Bucs average 16.7 PPG on the road and 16.0 PPG in their last three games. Carolina has averaged 29.8 PPG in their last three games. They are rolling right now. Tampa’s defense has also given up an average of 36.7 PPG in their last three games.

Prediction: Panthers 31 – Bucs 17

Pick Against the Spread: Panthers -9 (Confidence: 3/5)
