NFL Week 16 Betting Lines
Christmas weekend means Week 16 and each NFL team will be in action. Playoff positions and seedings will be at stake all weekend long as well as some coaching careers that will likely be cut short in just another week. The coaching carousel as well as the end of some long-playing careers will be a heavy topic of conversation. Once again, the NFL will feature flex scheduling in which five games will have starting times that are yet to be determined. Team performance and the magnitude of those matchups will determine when they finally kickoff. With the Holiday Spirit and long weekend in mind gambling action and handle should be through the roof.
NFL Week 16 Schedule & Lines
It all starts with a Christmas afternoon game between the Saints and Vikings in New Orleans. This is a rematch of last year’s wild card round playoff game that the Vikings won in overtime 26-20. New Orleans dropped a level in defense last year and it came back to bite them at the worst possible time. Both the Vikings and Saints are picked as likely NFC playoff contenders and one has to figure there will be plenty on the line for this matchup. Beyond that Saints quarterback Drew Brees will be nearing the end of his Hall of Fame career.
One of the great hated rivalries of the NFL comes from the NFC East and will be renewed on Sunday afternoon as the Dallas Cowboys host the Philadelphia Eagles. Last year the Eagles edged out Dallas for the NFC East crown. This year the Cowboys are favored to return the favor.
The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Atlanta Falcons in a game that will feature record setting quarterbacks. Patrick Mahomes of the Chiefs and Matt Ryan of the Falcons will draw viewers and potentially many over the total bets. By this time, we will know if Falcons coach Dan Quinn will be facing the firing squad or not after getting a stay of execution from owner Arthur Blank last year.
The Steelers will host the Colts at Pittsburgh in a matchup of teams that should be right on the cusp of playoff position. Quarterbacks Philip Rivers of the Colts and Ben Roethlisberger of the Steelers could each be winding down long and successful careers.
The tundra is likely to be quite frozen for NBC Sunday Night Football and its prime-time matchup of the Packers and Titans. Tennessee was the upstart surprise of the AFC playoffs last year but must now prove that was not a fluke. Meanwhile the Packers level of actual contender status should be revealed by this point of the season. Defensively Green Bay fell short when it mattered most last year. Tennessee quarterback Ryan Tannehill cashed in on his big 2019 season but was it a portent of things to come or a flash in the pan?
Monday Night Football offers an old rivalry that dates back to 1960 and the founding of the American Football League as the Patriots host the Bills in what could well prove to be a changing of the guard in the AFC East, where these teams have shared a residence for 60 seasons. By this time, we’ll know if Bill Belichick’s dream of coaching without Tom Brady has turned into a nightmare or not.
