Week 16 NFL Parlay Picks Are Sure To Please

Written by on December 23, 2016

Will Kirk Cousins and the Washington Redskins handle the lowly Chicago Bears even though their playoff hopes are pretty much vanquished? Are Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers a lock selection to take down the lowly Cleveland Browns? Will Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks dispatch Carson Palmer and the Arizona Cardinals by double digits to cover the NFL betting line? Let’s find out the answers to all three questions right now.

Here’s A Closer Look At The Week 16 NFL Parlay Picks Are Sure To Please


Washington at Chicago

When: Saturday, December 24 at 1:00 PM ET Where: Soldier Field, Chicago, Illinois NFL Odds: Washington -3.5 Analysis: After correctly predicting Washington’s (7-6-1 SU, 9-5 ATS) Monday night loss to Carolina, I’m back with a pick on Washington for Week 16, but this time, it’s for Kirk Cousins and company to win and cover the spread. While the Bears (3-11 SU, 7-7 ATS) put up a great effort in their heartbreaking 30-27 loss to Green Bay this past weekend they’ve also lost five of their last six games while getting limited to 21 points or less four times during the six-game stretch. While they’re certainly not a juggernaut and may miss the playoffs altogether, I like Washington to rebound and narrowly get past the Bears, mostly because they have the more explosive offense – and  lot more to play for as they hold on to the smallest sliver of hope they can still get into the playoffs. Washington is 6-1 ATS in their last seven games following an ATS loss a robust 8-2 ATS in their L/10 road dates. Conversely, Chicago Bears is 0-5 ATS in their last five home dates against the Skins while the road team in this series has gone 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings. Pick: Washington 27 Chicago 20

San Diego at Cleveland

When: Saturday, December 24 at 1:00 PM ET Where: FirstEnergy Stadium, Cleveland, Ohio NFL Odds: San Diego -6 Analysis: There’s a reason a whopping 69 percent of the betting public already likes Philip Rivers and the high-scoring San Diego Chargers (5-9 SU, 7-7 ATS) to cover as less than a touchdown fave – and it’s because the Cleveland Browns (0-14 SU, 2-12 ATS) are an absolute disgrace and the Bolts can score the ball with the best offenses in the league. San Diego averages a healthy 26.1 points per game while Cleveland averages just 15.7 points per contest and has not scored more than 13 points in their last six games. With San Diego going 10-3 ATS in their last 13 games following an SU loss and Cleveland going 0-7 ATS in their last seven games following an ATS loss, I say the outcome of this affair is a virtual lock! Pick: San Diego 28 Cleveland 17

Arizona at Seattle

When:  Saturday, December 24 at 4:25 PM ET Where: CenturyLink Field, Seattle, Washington NFL Odds: Seattle-8 Analysis: Carson Palmer and the Arizona Cardinals have lost two straight games, but they’re my pick to cover the spread against Russell Wilson and a Seattle Seahawks team that has alternated SU wins and losses over their last four games. First and foremost, the Cardinals are a robust 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games in the month of December. Throw in the fact that Seattle is just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games following an ATS win and that the road team in this NFC West rivalry is a perfect 4-0 ATS in the last four meetings and it’s easy to see Arizona covering in a losing effort. 56 percent of the betting public likes Seattle, but I don’t, particularly seeing as how these NFC West rivals played to a pitiful 6-6 tie in late October. Pick: Seattle 24 Arizona 21
