NFL Week 16 has its fair share of sharp betting picks. Teams like the Packers, Colts, and Saints look like solid plays. But winning teams aren’t the only ones that sharps are backing this week. Check out a list of the top five teams sharps have circled on their NFL Betting calendars.
Sharp National Football League Betting Picks For Week 16
2021 NFL Week 16
- When: Thursday, Dec. 23 – Monday, Dec. 27
Packers blast banged-up Browns
The Packers have gone from a -6 ½ to -7 favorite. By the time kickoff happens on Saturday, Green Bay could be up to a -8 ½ chalk.
There’s no telling if any Cleveland player, especially quarterbacks Baker Mayfield and Case Keenum, clear coronavirus protocols. Also, Takkarist McKinley is on IR and Myles Garrett is banged up.
Jonathan Taylor runs all over the Arizona Cardinals’ defense
Indianapolis is playing much better than Zona, who lost straight up to the Lions as a -13 favorite in Week 15. So by Saturday, the line could be all the way up to Indianapolis -2 to -2 ½. It might be up to Indy -3.
Lions are a good bet to cover against the Falcons
Sharps will wait until the last minute to pound the Lions, who should be no worse than a -2 ½ to -3 dog versus the terrible Falcons.
Detroit has finally gotten it together. The win over the Cardinals proves it. The Falcons are getting worse week to week. The only reason sharps haven’t jumped on Detroit -6 is because they’re hoping the public pounds the ATL to -7.
NYJ adds to the Jaguars’ woes
Sharps are all over this line. They don’t see the point of laying off the Jets because they know the public will be against the Jags.
Jacksonville spoke all week about how things were so much more copasetic now that Khan fired Urban Meyer. Then, they went out as a -4 ½ chalk against the Texans and played one of their worst games of the season. Jacksonville is a bad football team. The Jets are on the right track. NYJ goes off a -3 ½ to -4 ½ chalk by kickoff. No worries if you like the Jets because they’ll cover.
Saints dominate a coronavirus inflicted Dolphins squad
There’s a chance the Fins won’t have any players out, which is why sharps are laying off. They’re hoping the public goes with Miami. If that happens, the Saints become a solid play at -3, or if the sharps are lucky, New Orleans -2 ½. So expect late sharp money to land on the Saints in this contest.
