2018 NFL Week 16 Early Betting Picks for Every Game

2018 NFL Week 16 Early Betting Picks for Every Game

Written by on August 7, 2018

There are no more bye weeks and no second chances left by the time we reach the 2018 NFL Week 16. Some teams will have already punched their playoff tickets, which means that the last few spots will be going fast. This week may prove to do or die for a number of teams on the outside looking in. Let’s look at the schedule for Week 16 of the 2018 season while making some NFL betting predictions.

2018 NFL Week 16 Early Betting Picks for Every Game

New York Giants vs Indianapolis Colts

There are some who believe the Giants will have a bounce back year. I’m not fully on board with that, although I do think they get the win here.

Houston Texans vs Philadelphia Eagles

I think there is a good chance that the Eagles have the East locked up by now, but I still think they come out and get the win over the Texans.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs Miami Dolphins

The Jags came close to the Super Bowl last season and look primed to have another good year. They look like a solid pick on the road in Miami.

Washington Redskins vs Tennessee Titans

The Titans left it late to grab their playoff spot last season and may well need to do the same again this season. I think they are a good bet at home in Week 16.

Green Bay Packers vs New York Jets

This could potentially be the blowout of the week, as I think the Packers are going to be very tough to stop this season, while the Jets look like they might be in for a long year.

Cincinnati Bengals vs Cleveland Browns

These two will be scrapping to stay out of the cellar in the North, and I am surprising myself by taking the Browns to win this one.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Dallas Cowboys

You have to think that a shake-up will be coming in Dallas if they miss the playoffs again. A win here should keep the Cowboys in contention.

Minnesota Vikings vs Detroit Lions

I imagine that the Vikings and packer will still be going toe to toe for the lead in the North. The Vikings keep the wins coming in Detroit.

Buffalo Bills vs New England Patriots

I take it back, this may well be the most lopsided win of the week. Should be an easy one for the Patriots.

Atlanta Falcons vs Carolina Panthers

Just like last season, the majority of the NFC South divisional games come late in the season. I think the Panthers edge it at home in what should be a great game.

Baltimore Ravens vs LA Chargers

It could well be desperation time for both of these teams, but I have to give the slight edge to the Chargers in their own building.

The Ravens have a tough visit in the 2018 NFL Week 16.

Chicago Bears vs San Francisco 49ers

If the 49ers are for real, then this is one that they should be winning rather comfortably.

LA Rams vs Arizona Cardinals

I expect the Rams to be in full demolition mode by this stage of the season as they gear up for the playoffs. Should be a comfortable road win.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs New Orleans Saints

Arguably the best match-up in Week 16, this could be a game for those who love offense. I’m going with the Saints in a shootout.

Kansas City Chiefs vs Seattle Seahawks

Tough to know what to expect from either of these teams. This one may come down to a QB making a big play, so let’s take Wilson and the Seahawks.

Denver Broncos vs Oakland Raiders

A big western battle set to go on Monday night in the penultimate week of the season. I’m with the Raiders in this one.
