NFL picks against the spread for every game in Week 16

We’re back for another week of picks against the spread. Here’s my full list of Week 16 picks.

Welcome back for Week 16 of the 2020 NFL season. We had a busy early slate of games with a Christmas game and a Saturday tripleheader. We have 11 games to play on Sunday and then Monday Night Football to wrap up the week.

Last week was solid, going 10-5-1 with my picks and 3-2 with my five best bets of the weekend. It has me at 105-115-3 on total picks and 38-36 on my best bets. A year ago, I went 131-117-4, finishing with a 52.78 win percentage. That’s barely turning a profit, but for a season’s worth of picks, that’s not too bad. I did not track my best bet percentage over the course of the season, but will make sure to do that this year.

I’m going to pick my five “best bets” each week, similar to what you might use in the DraftKings Pro Football Pick ‘Em National Championship. Lines are moving so some of the lines below will be different from what you see on game day. Look for value where you can!

In the meantime, here are my five picks of choice for this weekend:

Bucs (-9.5) over Lions
Cardinals (-5) over 49ers
Raiders (+3) over Dolphins
Chargers (-3) over Broncos
Jets (+9.5) over Browns

Here’s my full list of picks for Week 16.

Buccaneers @ Lions (+9.5): Bucs — WIN
Cardinals @ 49ers (+5): Cardinals — LOSS
