We serve up a complete rundown of all week 16 games and serve up Over and Under NFL picks for each and every game. Find out where we’re banking on the totals this week.

NFL Week 15 Betting Recap
We had a stellar week with our OVER-UNDER picks in week 15, finishing with a12-4 mark. Overall, it was a good week with our ATS Picks going 10-5-1 and our SU picks going 10-6. For our season totals, we are 115-108-2. With just two weeks left, let’s get started on our O/U predictions for week 16 NFL betting.


Chargers vs. Raiders
The total on this game has been steadily climbing since opening on 46-points at most sportsbooks. In all likelihood, Oakland’s 8-4 OVER record on the season has played a significant part in this NFL betting trend. In the last six games, however, the Raiders have gone OVER pre-set totals just twice. That’s down to their improved defensive play down the stretch. The Chargers, meanwhile, are 5-9 in O/U betting, riding a run of three straight UNDERs.

NFL Picks: UNDER 47 (-110) The Greek

Redskins vs. Eagles
The Redskins and Eagles collide in a pivotal NFC East showdown in the city of brotherly love. The Redskins are 7-7 in O/U betting while the Eagles are 6-8 in O/U betting. The Redskins are 4-2 O/U on the road and, most recently, they are coming off a 35-27 over the Bills. The Eagles, meanwhile, are 6-8 O/U and coming off a 40-17 loss to the Cardinals. Neither side has been particularly consistent this season, which makes this a tossup on our NFL picks.

NFL Picks: OVER 47 (+100) Pinnacle

Panthers vs. Falcons
The Panthers are riding a 14-game winning streak, which includes a league –leading 9-4-1 OVER record. There is no doubt the Panthers can score in abandon. The Falcons are another matter entirely, with a league worst 2-11-1 OVER record. The last meeting between this pair went 38-0 for the Panthers. In spite of that horrendous account two weeks ago, odds makers have rolled out a 47-point total or thereabouts depending on your sportsbook of choice. It’s unlikely the Falcons will take another bagel in this game but whether they put up enough points to push the total on this game OVER the high mark is another matter entirely. We’re thinking they’ll struggles will rear its ugly head again in this game.

NFL Picks: UNDER 47.5 (-110) 5Dimes

Bears vs. Buccaneers
The Bears have been struggling offensively in the last few games. Nevertheless, they’re riding three straight OVERS on the NFL odds board which has them improving to 7-7 in O/U betting. The Bucs are also 7-7 in O/U betting this season, which includes a 2-3 OVER record in their last five games. Totals opened to a rather high 46.5 points, but some sportsbooks have come down to 45.5-points already.

NFL Picks: UNDER 46 (-110) bet365

Browns vs. Chiefs
The Chiefs are 8-5-1 in O/U betting while the Browns are 8-6 in O/U betting this season. The two sides couldn’t be enjoying more contrasting fortunes this season. The Chiefs have steamrolled through their last eight games with an 8-0 SU record, 7-1 ATS mark and 4-3-1 OVER record. Against sides that are under .500 on the season, the Chiefs have scored no less than 30-plus points.

NFL Picks: OVER 42 (-110) Bookmaker

Cowboys vs. Bills
The total for the Cowboys and Bills opened on 44-points but has quickly come down to 42.5-points at most sportsbooks. To all intents and purposes, this game could go either way as the Bills are 8-6 in O/U betting this season while the Cowboys are 5-9 in O/U betting. At home, the Bills are 4-2 in O/U betting. Last week, they rallied late in a 35-25 loss to the Redskins, marking their third OVER in the last four games.

NFL Picks: OVER 42 (-105) Heritage

Texans vs. Titans
It’s anybody’s guess which way this game is going to go considering the backups are set to battle when the Texans and Titans collide. Texans are down to third-string backup Brandon Weeden after Hoyer (concussion) and Yates (ACL). The Titans are without Marcus Mariota (knee), opening the way for Zach Mettenberger. If there’s one guiding aspect of this matchup, it’s the Texans defense. As such, we’re banking on the UNDER for our NFL picks.

NFL Picks: UNDER 41.5 (-110) BetCRIS


Colts vs. Dolphins
The Colts and Dolphins collide in week 16 in what is a must-win game for the Colts. The Dolphins are already done and done for the season, playing simply for pride. Neither team is particularly consistent nor convincing either way. Both teams have split their 14 games 7-7 in O/U betting this season. By all accounts, this game could go either way on our NFL picks. We’re leaning towards the UNDER on our NFL picks given the quarterback issues.

NFL Picks: UNDER 44 (-105) Heritage

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837218, "sportsbooksIds":[169,1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":3, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Patriots vs. Jets
The total for this game opened around the 46.5-point but has come down by a point at most sports betting shops at early doors. Patriots are 8-6 in O/U betting while the Jets are 7-7 in O/U betting this season. Divisional rivalries tend to be close games, which is the probable cause for the UNDER trend on this game pushing the total down. For our money, we’re banking on the OVER as both sides have plenty of offensive weapons that can light up in this highly anticipated showdown.

NFL Picks: OVER 45 (-105) Pinnacle

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837215, "sportsbooksIds":[169,1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":3, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Steelers vs. Ravens
The Steelers are on a roll right now, mainly with their offense kicking it up a gear or two. The Ravens, meanwhile, continue to freefall behind suspect offensive play and ineffective defending. The game totals are set around the 47-point mark, which is high all things being considered. There is no doubt the Steelers can put up the points but with the Ravens struggling to find the end zone in recent weeks and averaging 11 points per game in their last three games this game could go UNDER.

NFL Picks: UNDER 47.5 (-105) Heritage

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2961853, "sportsbooksIds":[169,1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":3, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

49ers vs. Lions
The total on this game is incredibly low at 43-points at most sportsbook outlets, showing no sign of movements after early betting opened. That’s largely down to the hapless Niners and their inability to score points from game-to-game. The Lions, however, showed no sign of such trouble in MNF when they ran away 35-27 winners over New Orleans and cracked the closing 52-point total. Lions are at home and while they have nothing to play for they can still win out the season with the way Matt Stafford and Calvin Johnson are now playing.

NFL Picks: OVER 43 (-105) Heritage

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837219, "sportsbooksIds":[169,1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":3, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Jaguars vs. Saints
The Saints lost a shootout with the Lions in week 15 NFL betting while the Jaguars were stifled by the Atlanta Falcons. The Jaguars are 9-5 in O/U betting while the Saints are 8-5-1 in O/U betting. Both sides are offensive minded but the Saints have the disadvantage of a porous defense. The total on this game opened at a high of 51-points and has gone up to 52 points almost immediately.

NFL Picks: OVER 51.5 (-105) Heritage

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837220, "sportsbooksIds":[169,1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":3, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Packers vs. Cardinals
The Cardinals and Packers collide in what should be a right thriller in week 16 NFL betting. Clearly, it’s expected to be a shootout between Aaron Rodgers and Carson Palmer as the totals are creeping up into the 50-point mark after opening on 49.5-points. Cardinals are 9-5 in O/U betting and are coming off a 40-17 win over the Eagles. The Packers, meanwhile, hung 30-points on the Raiders in a 30-20 win.

NFL Picks: OVER 49.5 (-105) Pinnacle

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837225, "sportsbooksIds":[169,1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":3, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Rams vs. Seahawks
The total on this game is set to an incredibly low 41-points at most sportsbooks, with some going even lower to 40.5-points. The way Russell Wilson and the Seahawks have been playing in recent weeks, it’s somewhat surprising that the total would be so low. The Rams, meanwhile, are showing some spunk down the stretch and Case Keenum is eager to ply his trade before the season ends.

NFL Picks: OVER 40.5 (-105) Heritage

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837226, "sportsbooksIds":[169,1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":3, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Giants vs. Vikings
The Vikings are 3-10-1 in O/U betting this season, largely down to their solid defending. However, it has to be pointed out that Teddy Bridgewater and the Vikings offense aren’t exactly lighting up the scoreboard either, although they did crack the OVER in a 38-17 win over the Bears in week 15. The Giants, by contrast, can light it up like nobody’s business. Last week, they erased a 28-point deficit in the blink of an eye. In fact, the Giants are 9-5 in O/U betting this season.

NFL Picks: OVER 44.5 (-105) Pinnacle

[/]{"component":"oddswidget", "eventId":2837223, "sportsbooksIds":[169,1096,19,93,92,238,349], "LineTypeId":3, "PeriodTypeId":1}[/]

Bengals vs. Broncos
The Bengals and Broncos are set to collide in a pivotal AFC showdown on MNF, both sides going into this game without their chosen starters Andy Dalton and Peyton Manning. The total opened on 41-points but has come down to 40.5-points at most sportsbooks. Bengals are 7-7 in O/U betting while the Broncos are 5-8-1 in O/U betting.

NFL Picks: OVER 39 (+100) Pinnacle
