NFL Week 16 Betting – Picks and Odds

NFL Betting – Week 16 Picks San Diego Chargers @ Tennessee Titans

Sports Betting Odds: Titans -3

The San Diego Chargers and Tennessee Titans will be playing on Christmas day, which will give us a Friday game this week instead of the usual Thursday night contests.

The Chargers have won 17 straight games in December and nine straight games overall, which gives you an indication of just how they are playing right now. Last week, they locked up the No. 2 seed in the AFC as they disposed of the pesky Cincinnati Bengals at home.

This week, the Chargers won’t have as much motivation to play hard as the Tennessee Titans, who are fighting for their playoff lives, but they should be able to succeed nonetheless. The Titans have a very weak secondary, which is ranked 31st in the NFL, and the Chargers have one of the best passing games around.

With Philip Rivers, Antonio Gates and Vincent Jackson all playing as good as anyone at their respective positions, the Titans will have a tough time slowing them down. The Chargers are one of the hottest teams in the NFL right now and there is no reason to bet against them – especially if they are an underdog. This will be a slugfest but the Chargers will come out on top.

Seattle Seahawks @ Green Bay Packers

NFL Betting Lines: Packers -13.5

What has happened to the Seattle Seahawks? At the beginning of the season, a lot of people expected the Seahawks to compete with the Arizona Cardinals for the division in the NFC West but as the season has played out, that has been far from the case.

The Seahawks are abysmal this year and have just five wins on the year. Those wins have come against Jacksonville, San Francisco, Detroit and St. Louis (twice). Last week, the Seahawks hit a low point as they were blown out at home by the one-win Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The task increases exponentially this week as they face the Green Bay Packers, who are the hottest team in the NFC. In most cases, this could be a letdown situation but the pass-heavy Packers are going to carve up the Seahawks secondary, which is one of the worst in the league.

The Seahawks have quit on the season while the Packers are still rolling. This one will be as one-sided as it looks.
