Week 16 betting breakdown

Redskins at Titans (-10): Both teams are sitting on the outside of the wild cards spots. This is effectively a playoff eliminator. If you think Josh Johnson can win back to back road games, you’ll certainly find some value on Washington this week.

Ravens at Chargers (-4.5): The win in Kansas City gave Los Angeles a playoff berth, while Baltimore holds on to the last spot in the AFC. Philip Rivers enters 3-4 against the Ravens all-time and 1-4 in Saturday games.

Bengals at Browns (-8.5): Cleveland is looking for its first win at home against the cross-state rivals since 2014 and the first season sweep since 2002. The Week 1 tie with Pittsburgh leaves the Browns teetering on playoff viability, while the Bengals are out.

Bills at Patriots (-13.5): New England can clinch the AFC East with a win, while the Bills will end their season next week. The Patriots have won 13 of the last 15 against their division rivals.

Falcons at Panthers (-2.5): The Panthers might be on the brink of elimination should they lose to the Saints on Monday Night Football. The Falcons’ season is over already. The teams have split the last eight games in Charlotte.

Packers at Jets (PK): Both teams are out of the playoffs. There was a lot of discrepancy on this line across the industry on Monday so value shoppers might want to get in early.

Jaguars at Dolphins (-4): Miami enters needing a win to keep their playoff hopes alive, while Jacksonville is out. Ryan Tannenhill is 2-1 in his career against the Sunshine State rivals.

Vikings (-5.5) at Lions: Minnesota needs to win to keep its playoff hopes alive, while Detroit is out again. The teams have split the last six at Ford Field. BetStars gives the road team a half-point extra value, while William Hill offers a full point.

Giants at Colts (-9): Should the Ravens slip in LA, the Colts would be the team to replace them in the wild card slot with a win. The Giants are out, which means all those “ceremonial bets” on them winning the Super Bowl when the books opened in NJ can go in scrapbooks. There’s some value for this game: William Hill and 888Sport offer a half-point extra value on Indy, while Fanduel gives that point to Big Blue.

Buccaneers at Cowboys (-7): Dallas wins the NFC East with a win and Washington loss. Tampa is playing to see if Jameis Winston deserves a new contract. The Cowboys have won four of the last five in the series.

Texans (-1) at Eagles: Nick Foles will get the start again for the Eagles, coming off the shocking win at the Rams as 13.5-point dogs. Houston has never won an NFL game in Philadelphia, going back to the Oilers. Foles steps under center against the team that injured him in 2014, so expect a LOUD stadium.

Bears (-4) at 49ers: Chicago wrapped up the NFC North last week and could work their way into a bye week if they keep winning. San Fran is out. This will be the fifth straight year these teams have met but the first in Santa Clara since 2014, which the Bears won.

Steelers at Saints (-5.5): Both teams lead their divisions, which New Orleans has clinched. Wins against Carolina and Pittsburgh would give them home field throughout, while Pittsburgh could tie up the AFC North with a win and Ravens loss. Expect a high total once we get Big Ben cleared for this thriller.

Rams (-14) at Cardinals: Two Sunday Night losses have the Rams scrambling. They can keep the bye in the playoffs if they win out, but the top seed seems unlikely now. FanDuel posted a big number as the Rams have won four of the last five in this division rivalry.

Chiefs (-2.5) at Seahawks: Both teams were upset by division foes in Week 15, amplifying this game even more. KC can clinch home field advantage with a win and Chargers loss, while Seattle locks up a wild card with a win and teams behind them losing.

Broncos (-2.5) at Raiders: Both teams are out of the playoffs so this is mostly for pride in the old AFL rivalry. Oakland has won the last two at home against Denver. This could also be the last time the Raiders play in the original Black Hole of the Coliseum, considering Oakland is now suing the team (ahhh, just like the old days with Al).
