NFL Week 16 Betting Odds

With three weeks remaining in the regular season the playoff races are tightening up. And in an rare matchup conference leaders and Super Bowl favorites will tangle in the Week 16 edition of Monday Night Football in one of two marquee contests on the slate. According to ESPN the Baltimore Ravens at San Francisco 49ers Monday Night Football game marks just the second time in a decade that the two Super Bowl favorites tangle in a December or January regular season game. And all but one game on the schedule has playoff implications with a number of teams in each conference battling for seeding.

At 11-3 the Ravens and Niners lead their conference by a single game over the next closest pursuer so this is an important game now as well as a possible Super Bowl preview. The teams met once before in Super Bowl XLVII to complete the 2012 season with Baltimore escaping 34-31. Winners in four straight and eight of their last nine the Ravens are a 5.5-point underdog on the early line. The Niners clinched the NFC West with a 45-29 win over Arizona on Sunday, but their sights are set on the bigger prize.

The other high-profile game pits teams looking to make up the one-game difference in the standings. The Dallas Cowboys were the hottest team in the NFL having won five straight before getting blown out 31-10 by Buffalo on Sunday. They fell one game behind the Niners for the overall NFC lead and behind/tied the Eagles in the NFC East race. Following their disappointing Week 14 setback to Tennessee the Dolphins regrouped to blast the Jets, 30-0, for their fourth win in five games.

We discussed the Ravens but what about the Buffalo Bills rising from the ashes to get back in playoff contention. They had a brutal three-game stretch facing Philly, Kansas City and Dallas coming out ahead in two of those games. The loss at Philadelphia was tough to swallow and possibly made the club pay more attention to detail. An early season favorite in the Super Bowl futures market, the Bills saw their odds lengthen after splitting their first 10 games. However, the offense came alive scoring more than 30 points three times over the previous four games.

Buffalo’s matchup with the Chargers is an interesting one. We’ve seen teams respond to a coaching change positively in the past and the Bolts get a chance on Saturday with interim coach Giff Smith wearing the big headset. The big question is just how much pride do the Bolts have? The loss of Justin Herbert stings but this squad rolled over in Brandon Staley’s last gig as HC getting pummeled, 63-21, by a Raiders team that isn’t that good.

A full week of NFL kicks off on Thursday night with the Rams listed as a 4-point favorite against the New Orleans Saints. The teams are among a group four entering Week 16 with a record of 7-7 battling for the final two playoff spots in the NFC. The South Division title is also on the table for New Orleans with Tampa Bay among the group of four. Baker Mayfield put on a show last week throwing for 381 yards and four touchdowns as the Bucs won their third straight 34-20 over Green Bay. Tampa is catching 1-point on the early line in its game with the reeling Jags ahead of the Week 17 showdown with the Saints.

For NFL fans there is a Santa with a Christmas tripleheader on tap. A pair of divisional matchups takes place during the day before the big MNF tilt between the Ravens and Niners. Fresh off their record setting win over the Chargers, Las Vegas heads to Kansas City for an AFC West tussle. The Chiefs extended their winning streak in the series to six with a 31-17 payout victory in Week 12 and opened as a 10-point favorite. KC has covered in two straight and in four of the last five. The NFC East takes the stage in the middle game with the Giants facing the Eagles.

Six teams have officially been eliminated from playoff contention and two of them square off with Washington visiting the Jets on Sunday. With New York eliminated from playoff contention for the 13th straight season I doubt we’ll see Aaron Rodgers make an appearance. And we may not see Zach Wilson, who exited Sunday’s 30-0 loss to Miami with concussion-like symptoms. The Jets are bad yet they’re favored by 3-points over the team formerly known as the Redskins.
