A Closer Look At The Online Sportsbook Betting: Week 16 NFL Over/Under Picks

 

 

Atlanta at Carolina

When: December 24 at 1:00 PM ET
Where: Bank of America Stadium
Total: 51.5

Analysis: The Atlanta Falcons have played Over the Total in four straight games, but Carolina has played Under the total in two straight and three of their last five games. More importantly, the Total has gone Under in 15 of the last 21 meetings between these NFC South division rivals when they meet in Carolina and I think it’s a virtual lock to play under the high 51.5-point total in this contest.

Pick: Under 51.5 Total Points

Indianapolis at Oakland

When: December 24, 2016 at 4:05 PM ET
Where: Oakland Alameda Coliseum
Total: 52.5

Analysis: The Raiders (11-3) have gone under the total in two straight games by scoring 19 points or less in each of their last two games, but I’m thinking they’re in for a high-scoring affair against Andrew Luck and the Colts when they meet up on Saturday.

Speaking of Indianapolis, the Colts have played Under the Total in two straight and four of their last five games overall. Nevertheless, I’m thinking both teams could score in the 30’s in this matchup, making the Over 52.5 total points the pick for me.

Pick: Over 52.5 Total Points

Tampa Bay at New Orleans -3

When: December 24, 2016 at 4:25 PM ET
Where: Mercedes-Benz Superdome
Total: 52

Analysis: Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers have played Under the total in two straight and four of their last five games while Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints have played under the total in three of their last five.

More importantly, these two NFC South division rivals haven’t topped the 52-point total in this affair in five straight meetings. Tampa Bay’s defense, first and foremost, keeps this game from going over the total.

Pick: Under 52 Total Points

San Francisco at L.A. Rams -4

When: December 24, 2016, 04:25
Where: Los Angeles Memorial Coliseum
Total: 39.5

Analysis: The pitiful 49ers and Rams have both played Under the total in three of their last five games and that’s just what oddsmakers want you to think it’s going to happen in this affair, but I’m not buying it.

Yes, I know both of these teams are completely awful, but it is that incompetent play that I believe will help each tem reach the 20-point plateau as this contest plays Over the 39.5-point total. The total has gone Over in six of San Francisco’s last eight games on the road. The total has gone Over in four of San Francisco’s last half-dozen road games against Los Angeles.

Pick: Over 39.5 Total Points

Detroit at Dallas -7

Total: 44.5

Analysis: While the Cowboys and Lions combine to allow just 38.7 points per game defensively, they also average a combined 47.6 points per game offensively. The Lions have played Under the total in five straight games while Dallas has played Under their O/U totals in four of their last five games.

The total has gone Over in four of Dallas’s last six home games against Detroit and I’m thinking this is going to be a high-scoring affair that tops the 44.5-point O/U total with room to spare.

Pick: Over 44.5 Total Points
