After watching their postseason hopes take a hit this past weekend, Jared Goff and the Los Angeles Rams will be looking to pull off the huge upset over Jimmy Garoppolo and the San Francisco 49ers when they two rivals square off in their Week 16 NFC West divisional battle on Saturday.
Meanwhile, Lamar Jackson and the streaking Baltimore Ravens will look to take another step toward securing the top seed in the AFC playoffs by handing Baker Mayfield and the Cleveland Browns another humbling defeat in what has been a season full of them for the underachieving Browns.
Last, but not least, Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings will host Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers in an immense NFC North divisional battle that will almost certainly have postseason implications for both teams involved. Now, let’s find out what’s going to go down in all three aforementioned matchups right now.
2019 NFL Week 16 Parlay Betting Picks
Saturday, December 21st, 2019Los Angles Rams (8-6) vs. San Francisco 49ers (11-3)
- When: 8:15 PM ET
- TV: NFLN
- NFL Week 16 Odds: San Francisco -6½ / Total: 46
Just one week after picking up a solid 28-12 home win over Seattle, Jared Goff and the Rams failed to show up in their disgraceful 44-21 smackdown loss against a Dallas Cowboys team that has underachieved all season long. Now, just 3-3 over their last six, L.A. needs a big-time performance in this matchup, but keep in mind, the rams, once vaunted offense has been limited to 21 points or less in four of their last seven games.
While Jimmy G and the 49ers have dropped two of their last four games, including a 29-22 upset loss against Atlanta on Sunday, the Niners are playing at home and they handed the Rams a 20-7 defeat at home earlier this season. Los Angeles has gone 4-12-1 ATS in their last 17 games as an underdog while Frisco has gone 5-1 ATS in their last six games against a team with a winning record. I like the Niners to win and cover the chalk to nearly extinguish the rams’ playoff hopes.
Pick: San Francisco 31 LA Rams 21

Baltimore Ravens (12-2) vs. Cleveland Browns (6-8)
- When: 1:00 PM ET
- TV: CBS
- NFL Week 16 Odds: Baltimore -7 / Total: 49
If you’re no fan of the loud-mouthed Baker Mayfield, then you’re probably happy to see how the former Heisman winner and the rest of his Cleveland Browns teammates have been quieted this season despite entering the 2019 campaign with a ton of high hopes.
The Browns got completely out-played in their 38-24 road loss against Kyler Murray and the Cardinals this past weekend and now they get the honor of getting smacked around by Lamar Jackson and the streaking Baltimore Ravens, winners of 10 straight games. With Baltimore going 7-1 ATS in their last eight games and 8-2-1 ATS in their last 11 meetings against the Browns, I’m thinking this Week 16 AFC North battle is a virtual lock!
Pick: Baltimore 35 Cleveland 20
Monday, December 23rd, 2019
Green Bay Packers (11-3) vs. Minnesota Vikings (10-4)
- When: 8:15 PM ET
- TV: ESPN
- NFL Week 16 Odds: Minnesota -4.5 / Total: OFF
Green Bay narrowly got past Chicago on Sunday and they beat Minnesota 21-16 at home in Week 2. This time around however, I like the Vikes to extract some revenge as they seek to leapfrog the Packers for the NFC North division crown.
Minnesota has won two straight and four of their last five games overall while limiting each of their last two opponents to 10 points or less. That kind of defense, combined with the fact that they are playing at home, makes Minnesota the pick to take care of business in this huge matchup.
Pick: Minnesota 23 Green Bay 17
