2019 NFL Week 16 Over/Under Betting Picks

Written by on December 16, 2019

Usually by the time we reach this stage of the NFL season, we have the potential Super Bowl winners narrowed down to 2 or 3 teams, with maybe a dark horse team thrown in for good measure. That is not the case this season, though, as you could very easily make a strong case for 6 or 7 different teams. There is a definite divide between the top teams and the rest of the pack this season, with no less than 9 teams sitting on double-digit wins at this late stage of the season.

There has been a lot of dog eat dog stuff going on between the teams at the top so who knows which teams will land those coveted first round byes. We are going to take a look ahead to Week 16 to see if we can find some O/U NFL Betting picks to play. We will also have SU and ATS picks coming your way, so watch out for those.

2019 NFL Week 16 Over/Under Betting Picks

Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots (UNDER 38 ½)

Both the Bills and the Patriots have clinched their playoff spots for this year, but the Patriots need one more win to clinch the division. They are also looking at holding on to the #2 seed in the NFC, so they will be going all out for the win here. That might not be so easy to do against a Bills defense that has been solid all year long.

Both of these teams are great on the defensive side of the football, which is perhaps why they have a combined 8-20 O/U record this season. Everything here points towards a low-scoring game on Sunday.

NFL Week 16 Betting Trends

  • The total has gone UNDER in 8 of Buffalo’s last 9 games on the road
  • The total has gone UNDER in 11 of New England’s last 15 games played in December

Jacksonville Jaguars at Atlanta Falcons in NFL Week 16 (OVER 45 ½)

While the Atlanta Falcons have been a terrible disappointment this season, they are looking to close out strong, winning back to back games ahead of this one. They are coming off a huge 29-22 upset win on the road against the San Francisco 49ers last weekend and have now scored a total of 69 points over their last 2 games.

It’s a little too late for the Falcons, but the offense finally seems to be coming to life. The meetings between Atlanta and Jacksonville have trended in the direction of the under, but I like this one to go OVER.

NFL Week 16 Betting Trends

  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Jacksonville’s last 6 games played in December
  • The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Atlanta’s last 5 games played in week 16

Carolina Panthers at Indianapolis Colts (OVER 46 ½)

The Carolina Panthers have totally fallen apart in the second half of the season, losing 6 in a row and firing their head coach along the way. The one bet that this team has been good for this season is the OVER, with 10 of their 14 games this season going that route, including each of their last 4.

The Colts are favorites against the Panthers in NFL Week 16.

The Colts are another team that has fallen apart late, but they are also one that leans towards the OVER, with their last 4 crossing the point total put in place by the bookies.

  • The total has gone OVER in 8 of Carolina’s last 11 games this season
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Indianapolis’ last 6 games

Pittsburgh Steelers at New York Jets in NFL Week 16 (UNDER 38 ½)

The Pittsburgh Steelers have been forced to adopt a defense first approach this season after seeing their main offensive threats spend the majority of the season on the sideline with injury.

It is an approach that has paid of in terms of winning football games, but it has also been good for bettors playing the UNDER in Steelers games, with each of their last 6 games going that route. The Steelers have also seen each of their last 6 road games go UNDER.

  • The total has gone UNDER in 6 of Pittsburgh’s last 6 games
  • The total has gone UNDER in 4 of NY Jets’ last 5 games against an opponent in the AFC North division
