2019 NFL Week 16 Odds, Overview & Expert Predictions

Buffalo Bills vs. New England Patriots (-6)

The AFC East will come down to this game as the Bills travel to play the Patriots in Foxborough. The Bills are a game back in the loss column and lost the previous head to head matchup. With a victory they could put themselves in position to win the division for the first time since 1995. The Patriots open as the -6 favorites but could find trouble as the offense has been lackluster over the past month.

Somehow it feels like the Patriots will still find a way to win. Tom Brady is still the QB and that will lead them back to a division crown for yet another season. The Patriots are 4-0 ATS this year against division opponents and are 5-1 straight up at home this year. Pats -6 in a defensive battle is the pick.

Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles (+3)

The NFC East has been a nightmare of a race to follow this year as both teams sit at 7-7 currently and have looked awful at times. The winner of the division will get to host a playoff game with the worst record in the NFC. It all comes down to this game as the Cowboys are the -3 favorites despite traveling to Philadelphia.

The Cowboys looked like a playoff team as they dismantled the Rams last week 44-21. As bad as both teams have been the Cowboys are the smart pick here as they are the more complete team and if they are able to get Zeke going like last week look out for Dallas. Philadelphia is 1-4 in their last five games against the spread.

Green Bay Packers vs. Minnesota Vikings (-4.5)

This is another game with a division title on the line. With a win the Packers can secure the NFC North in what will turnout to be a dogfight for positioning in the playoffs. The Vikings might have injuries take a toll on them as Dalvin Cook is questionable and Adam Thielen has missed a handful of games this season. The intriguing matchup in this game is Aaron Rodgers against the Vikings defense.

The Vikings rank in the bottom half of the league in opponents passing yards per game and Rodgers could put his stamp on this game through the air. Green Bay has played some impressive games this year and given the +4.5 points it should be a no brainer to take the Packers in this game. Green Bay is also 4-2 against the spread this year when going on the road and 4-0 against division opponents this year.
