NFL Week 16 Las Vegas Odds
(The Spread) – The odds for all of Week 16 in the NFL have been posted in Las Vegas. Let’s check out where the point spreads sit for some of the marquee matchups.
On Saturday night the Detroit Lions will host the Atlanta Falcons, who are looking to win one more game so they can secure home field advantage throughout the postseason. Oddsmakers from the MGM Mirage in Las Vegas currently list the Falcons as 4-point favorites while the over/under total is 50.5 after opening at 51.5.
The Pittsburgh Steelers recognize that their playoff hopes come down to Sunday when they host the Cincinnati Bengals at 1:00PM ET. The Steelers are 7-7 and with the Bengals sitting at 8-6, a loss would drop Pittsburgh out of the postseason discussion in the AFC.
A win, meanwhile, will keep them alive for the division title as the 9-5 Baltimore Ravens have a tough matchup at home with the New York Giants this weekend. The Steelers are currently 4.5-point favorites in Vegas and the Ravens are 2.5-point home underdogs versus the defending Super Bowl champs.
On Sunday night the San Francisco 49ers will put the NFC West Division crown on the line when they visit the Seattle Seahawks at 8:30PM ET. The Niners opened as 1-point underdogs but the line has since flipped to Seattle +1. If San Francisco wins, it’ll claim first place in the division. If it loses, the final week of the season will determine which of these teams takes home the division title.
A couple of other matchups with playoff implications: The Cowboys are 3-point favorites over the Saints according to oddsmamkers from online sports book Bovada.lv. The Redskins are also 4.5-point favorites over the Eagles while the Vikings are 7.5-point underdogs at Houston. The Bears are 5.5-point road favorites versus the Cardinals and the Broncos are 13-point favorites versus the Browns.
