NFL picks, predictions against the point unfold, Week 16
A profitable week goes to maintain my file above .500 for tor the 12 months as I cling to hope for a profitable season selecting NFL video games against the point unfold. Let’s see what we’ve got this week.
The Vikings protection is suffocating and they’re enjoying for the No. 1 seed probably. I don’t usually like massive point spreads in divisional video games, however after getting Aaron Rodgers again and dropping him once more I really feel like that might be emotionally breaking.
The Bengals are very beat up on protection.
The Jets have been enjoying up all 12 months and have a few harmful defensive gamers. I don’t belief the Chargers to win comfortably, they by no means win comfortably.
Pick: Chargers (-7)
The Rams are terrific and the Titans are inconsistent however hold profitable. They are Eight-6 regardless of a -23 point differential.
The Browns are operating out of time if they will win a recreation this 12 months. I don’t know if they’ll, however I don’t assume it’ll be for lack of attempting.
I like massive point differentials in divisional video games.
I wouldn’t be shocked if the Falcons gained outright, so I’ll positively take the factors.
Since the loss to the Giants, the Broncos have gone 2-7, however they’re 2-Zero of their final two video games. They have a reasonably proficient group and I believe they’ll hold this recreation shut.
Ten factors is simply too many for a group that has been so inconsistent on offense all 12 months.
The Bills want this recreation, however they’ll by no means beat the Patriots. Still, I believe it’s doable they hold it shut as a result of they don’t get a complete lot of turnovers.
Good quarterback play makes an enormous distinction. The 49ers are a significantly better group with Jimmy G. The Jaguars’ protection, although, is a unique animal. The Jaguars haveone of the finest secondaries we’ve seen. I don’t assume the 49ers have the offensive weapons to problem the Jaguars on protection.
I’m hoping the Giants have one other win in them, however they’re so beat up. Landon Collins is soldiering on, however he’s banged up. The linebackers, defensive ends. Everyone is beat up. I don’t know if they’ll journey throughout nation and defeat a stable, however unspectacular Cardinals group, however I hope they may hold it shut. I’d additionally like to see one other classic efficiency from Eli Manning.
If Ezekiel Elliott is ready to run on Seattle like Todd Gurley did the Cowboys will run throughout the Seahawks, however I don’t assume they may try this.
The Texans protection is final in the league in factors allowed. They certain miss J.J. Watt.
Pick: Steelers by greater than 9
The Eagles’ protection confirmed some warts against the Giants. If they need to win the Super Bowl they need to play significantly better.
Season Record: 105-102-10
