NFL Week 16 Hit or Miss

Went 2-2-1 last week, let’s see what happens in this one.

Redskins (+10) @ Titans

I like the Redskins as double digit underdogs. I think that their defense is just too good and the Tennessee offense is nothing to be afraid of. The Titans have had multiple games this season where they scored 10 points or fewer and I don’t see them scoring more that 14 points in the first game of the Saturday slate. I think this may be the easiest bet of the weekend, take the skins with confidence.

Final Score: Redskins 10 Titans 14

Buccaneers @ Cowboys (-7)

After putting up a donut last week, the Cowboys are going to come out firing. Tampa has a pretty decent defense. But I don’t think their offense is going to be able to put up many points against a very very good Dallas defense. Dak Prescott always plays his best games at home in Jerry World. And so I think the Cowboys are going to win by double digits. Otherwise they’ll be a laughing stock going into the playoffs. This will be a very long day for Jameis Winston.

Final Score: Bucs 13 Cowboys 27

Giants @ Colts (-9 1/2)

Although I don’t like giving up this many points, this is different. Odelle is going to be out another week and it will simply come down to the quarterback match up. Andrew Luck is having a great year and Eli Manning is having another very below average season. The Colts offensive line has done a great job protecting their QB and I don’t think the New York defense is going to get anywhere close to Luck. Meanwhile, the Colts defense looks way better than anyone expected. They are going to stack the box and prevent Barkley from getting easy yards. I like the Colts to win by 10.

Final Score: Giants 17 Colts 27

Rams (-14 ½) @ Cardinals

Another one where I’m giving up a lot of points, but it is the Cardinals. They got roasted last week against the Falcons 40-14. It was never a game. This week they face a much better team in the Rams, who are looking to prove they belong on the top of the totem pole. Sean McVay is going to game plan this match up perfectly and win by about 3 touchdowns. The Cardinals can’t stop anybody and Josh Rosen is looking like the worst quarterback taken in this years draft class. Take the Rams.

Final Score: Rams 31 Cardinals 10

Chiefs @ Seahawks (+2 ½)

Everyone knows that Seattle is the hardest place to play in the NFL. They’ve also been playing very very well this season. Russell Wilson is solidifying himself as a top 5 QB in the game today. The Chiefs have obviously been an offensive juggernaut all season, but I think the Seahawks can keep up. The Seattle defense has played great as of late and I think Pete Carroll can draw up a plan to get pressure on Pat Mahomes. But I still like Seattle to win this game at home.

Final Score: Chiefs 31 Seahawks 33

Betting mastermind. Didn't have the height or talent for sports but I can talk and pick them like a champ.
