NFL Week 16 SU Betting Picks

NFL Week 16 SU Betting Picks

Written by on December 18, 2018

In the early part of the season, teams in the NFL are well aware that they have time to fix any perceived issues, but that time very quickly starts to run out. There are now just 2 weeks left in the season, with many of those “fix-it” teams now officially removed from playoff contention. There are now just 7 playoff spots left up for grabs, some of which may end up getting picked off this weekend. There are a lot of very big games on the Week 16 NFL Betting board and we have some SU picks that we really like. Be sure to keep an eye open for our articles that cover our ATS and O/U picks, too.

NFL Week 16 SU Betting Picks

Tennessee Titans over Washington Redskins

There are some teams that collapse under the pressure of a run to the playoffs, but the Titans seem to be thriving in that atmosphere, reeling off 3 straight wins to get to 8-6 on the season. They are down in the #8 spot in the AFC and may still need a little help, but they can certainly help themselves with a win here against a Washington team down to its third-string QB.

The odds here are not particularly great, so don’t expect a big return, but taking the Titans to win on Saturday afternoon is a good way to get your weekend rolling.

LA Chargers over Baltimore Ravens

By the time this game rolls around, the Ravens could well find themselves sitting below the playoff line. They are the perfect example of how tight things are in the AFC, as they were top of the AFC North and in the #4 spot at 4 PM EST last Sunday.

They now really need to win out to ensure themselves of a playoff position, and that looks a little unlikely given that their next stop is in Carson to play the LA Chargers, a team still in with a shot at nabbing a first-round bye. This should be a riveting match-up, but my money is on Phillip Rivers and the Chargers.

Green Bay Packers over New York Jets

This is one of those dodgy picks that you may end up regretting later, but it’s one that I am confident enough to go with right now. The Packers have shown very little to suggest that they are better than their record suggests, but I also think that, from top to bottom, they are just that much better than the New York Jets.

The Packers are a safe betting pick for NFL Week 16.

Now, this has never been a trip that the Packers have relished, as they have just 1 win in their last 5 trips to Jets territory. I am at the point, though, where I think Aaron Rodgers may just feel that he has something to prove, so let’s take the Packers to win.

Pittsburgh Steelers over New Orleans Saints

The Pittsburgh Steelers needed a win over the New England Patriots, a team they never beat, last weekend, and they got it. The 17-10 win was perhaps the best performance that this Steelers team has put in this year, but they cannot afford a letdown this weekend when they head to New Orleans.

The Saints are coming in on a short week after beating the Panthers on Monday night. The Saints have clinched their spot, but they have not looked totally convincing over the past 3 weeks or so. They may just run into a Pittsburgh team rounding into playoff form.
