Trying to find a full list of our upcoming NFL picks for Week 16? Look no further.

Miami Dolphins vs. Buffalo Bills

The Dolphins are riding high after a massive home win over the Patriots and that's sure to make them the popular pick against the unreliable Bills. However, Swinging Johnson is on Buffalo to cover this Sunday.

Pick: Bills +3 


New Orleans Saints vs. Carolina Panthers

This is a great chance for the Panthers to get retribution after losing to this same Saints team not long ago. Carolina is the favorite at home and I see them getting the SU win and ATS cover.

Pick: Panthers -3


Dallas Cowboys vs. Washington Redskins

The Redskins would love nothing more than to end the Cowboys' hopes of making the playoffs. But, instead of making a spread pick, I think there's more value on the OVER in what I think could easily turn into a shootout.

Pick: OVER 53.5


Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. St. Louis Rams

Though the Rams were impressive at home against the Saints last weekend, we're not so sure about this number. The Buccaneers have really turned the corner over the second half of the season, so I'm taking the dog.

Pick: Buccaneers +5.5


Cleveland Browns vs. New York Jets

Not the most interesting of games, but is there value out there regardless? Jason Lake seems to think so, as he's backing a Jets win at home against a Bills team that's only 2-5 on the road.

Pick: Jets -1.5


Indianapolis Colts vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Averaging close to 42 points over their last four games, the Chiefs are in fine form right now. They should be able to get the better of Andrew Luck and the Colts, so I'm backing a cashed ticket for Kansas City backers.

Pick: Chiefs -6.5


Minnesota Vikings vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Props to the Vikings for showing up with a great effort against Philadelphia last weekend, but they're going to find it tough to replicate that against the Bengals, who are terrific at home. Steve Merril has opted to take the home team with his NFL picks.

Pick: Bengals -8


Denver Broncos vs. Houston Texans

It's going to take something special for Case Keenum and the Texans to keep pace offensively with the Broncos. Doug Upstone doesn't think they can do it and is predicting a blowout win for Denver.

Pick: Broncos -10.5


Tennessee Titans vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

You may remember the Titans are the team Jacksonville beat for their first win of the season. That victory has given the Jaguars a big boost and Nila Amerova sees the momentum continuing with a cover on Sunday.

Pick: Jaguars +5


Arizona Cardinals vs. Seattle Seahawks

A victory over the Cardinals would give the Seahawks the division crown as well as home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. The NFL odds are steep, but Jason Lake's picking Seattle to cover at home.

Pick: Seahawks -10


New York Giants vs. Detroit Lions

Detroit could only watch on helplessly as Justin Tucker booted a long field goal to win last Monday night. Will the Lions bounce back this weekend? Most likely, but I feel even more confident with taking the OVER.

Pick: OVER 49


Oakland Raiders vs. San Diego Chargers

It's been another forgettable season for the Raiders, but do they really deserve to be such huge underdogs against the inconsistent Chargers? Swinging Johnson doesn't think so and will therefore make his play on the underdogs.

Pick: Raiders +10


Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Green Bay Packers

So Aaron Rodgers won't make his long-awaited return after all, but the Packers are still favored over Big Ben and the Steelers in Week 16. After analyzing the pros and cons of each side, Jason Lake has decided on Green Bay as his preferred selection.

Pick: Packers -2.5


New England Patriots vs. Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens won in the last minute last weekend but don't have much time to celebrate. They welcome Tom Brady and the Patriots this weekend and Joe Catalano is expecting more of a defensive battle than anything else.

Pick: UNDER 44


Chicago Bears vs. Philadelphia Eagles

What a fun game this should be. Two high-powered offenses square off with a ton on the line for both teams. Ron Patrick has done his due diligence and is backing a win and cover for Nick Foles and the Eagles.

Pick: Eagles -3


Atlanta Falcons vs. San Francisco 49ers

To wrap up the week, the 49ers will try to keep momentum high with another win, this time at home over the Falcons. This is some heavy chalk here, but Jason Lake thinks San Francisco is well worth taking.

Pick: 49ers -11.5
