NFL Betting – Week 16 Predictions and Picks


NFL Betting – Week 16 Picks Kansas City Chiefs @ Cincinnati Bengals

Sportsbetting Odds: Bengals -13.5

The Cincinnati Bengals have had a rough couple of weeks as they went a two-game road trip that resulted in several losses. On their record, the Bengals lost two games. In the locker room, the Bengals also suffered an emotional loss as wide receiver Chris Henry died.

The Bengals should be able to get back on track at home in Week 15, though, as the feeble Kansas City Chiefs come to town.

The Bengals had a tough loss in Minnesota two weeks ago as they were blown out and they followed it up with a gutty loss in San Diego. After playing the No. 2 seeds in both conferences, they’ll be happy to host one of the worst teams in the NFL on Sunday.

The Chiefs are horrible on both sides of the ball but if there is one weapon that the Bengals have to wary of, it’s running back Jamaal Charles. He’ll have a tough time finding running room against the Bengals, who have one of the best run defenses in the NFL.

On the flip side, look for the Bengals offense to go to work against the Chiefs defense. The Bengals should be able to have their way on the ground, which will set up some deep passes to Chad Ochocinco.

The Bengals shouldn’t have many problems rolling the Chiefs, who are a bad football team.

Bet Mania Reviews Picks: Bengals -13.5

Buffalo Bills @ Atlanta Falcons

NFL Betting Line: Falcons -9

The Atlanta Falcons had a gutsy win in New York on Sunday as they needed a touchdown on a fourth down of their final drive of the game to get the win. Even so, it was too little, too late as they were eliminated from the playoffs because both the Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers won their games.

Interestingly enough, the Falcons are immediately established as big favorites against the Buffalo Bills and while the Bills are not a good team, you have to wonder if the Falcons deserve being a nine-point favorite given how poorly they have played over the last two months.

The Bills are a scrappy bunch and they will make waves against this bad Falcons defense. Nine-points is too much to lay with a Falcons team that would be about a three- or four-point favorite had they lost last week.

NFL Betting Picks: Bills +9
