NFL Week 16 Betting Report
We’ve reached the final two weeks of the 2019 NFL schedule and the lines have been released for Week 16. What are the spreads and totals for this weekend’s biggest NFL matchups?
453 Buffalo Bills at 454 New England Patriots, 4:30 p.m. ET, Saturday
The 10-4 Bills still have their sights on winning the AFC East but they’ll need to upset the 11-3 Patriots in Foxborough to have a shot. Buffalo opened as a 6.5-point underdog and that’s what the line currently is at most sports books. The total, meanwhile, hit the board at 38.5 and that’s where that number sits. The road team is 20-8-1 against the spread in the last 29 meetings between these two teams.
451 Los Angeles Rams at 452 San Francisco 49ers, 8:15 p.m. ET, Saturday
A crucial matchup will take place in Santa Clara on Saturday night when the 49ers, who are now the 5th seed in the NFC after losing a heartbreaker to the Falcons in Week 15, host the Rams, who are trying to keep their slim playoff hopes alive. San Francisco is currently a 6.5-point home favorite versus its NFC West rivals, while the total sits at 46. The Rams are just 2-6 against the spread in their last eight games versus the 49ers while the under is 5-1 in the last six meetings in San Francisco.
463 New Orleans Saints at 464 Tennessee Titans, 1:00 p.m. ET, Sunday
The Titans are still on the outside looking in when it comes to the AFC playoff picture, but an upset of the Saints on Sunday would go a long way towards Tennessee staying in the mix. After opening as a 1-point dog, the Titans are now +1.5 to upend the Saints. That said, as of this writing, New Orleans has not played Indianapolis on Monday night, so this line could be on the move again, depending on the results of that matchup. The Saints are 4-9 against the spread in their last 13 games as a favorite (results of tonight’s game versus the Colts still pending)
475 Dallas Cowboys at 476 Philadelphia Eagles, 4:25 p.m. ET, Sunday
NFC East rivals clash in Philadelphia on Sunday when the 7-7 Eagles host the 7-7 Cowboys. With a win, the Cowboys would take essentially a two-game lead over the Eagles by virtue of beating the Eagles in Dallas earlier this season. The Cowboys are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games over the Eagles while the favorite is 7-1 ATS in the last eight meetings. As of this writing, the Cowboys are 2.5-point road favorites versus the Eagles.
481 Green Bay Packers at 482 Minnesota Vikings, 8:15 p.m. ET, Monday
The Monday Night Football matchup will have huge implications in the NFC North when the Vikings host the Packers at 8:15 p.m. ET. As of right now, there is no line in this game, as oddsmakers could be waiting to see if Dalvin Cook (shoulder) will play. The home team is 6-1 against the spread in the last seven meetings between these two teams, including earlier this season when the Packers took the Vikings down in Green Bay. The under is 5-0, meanwhile, in the last five meetings between these rivals in Minnesota.
