NFL Week 16 picks
Philadelphia Eagles (-11) vs. New York Giants
Point spread: Eagles -11, Giants +11
Moneyline: Eagles -510, Giants +375
My pick: Eagles -11
The Eagles are at home, need a win to stay in the playoff hunt, and are facing Jake Fromm in his first NFL start.
Bet on the Eagles to win in a blowout.
Buffalo Bills (+1) vs. New England Patriots
Point spread: Bills +1, Patriots -1
Moneyline: Bills -105, Patriots -115
My pick: Bills +1
Does Bill Belichick after a loss scare me? Yes, very much so. Does Sean McDermott scare me in general? Again ... yes. I’m gonna go with the team with the better quarterback looking to exorcise its demons from that weird wind/snow game. The COVID issues might have tilted it in the opposite direction, but they got a few of those players back.
Bet on the Bills to win.
New York Jets (-2) vs. Jacksonville Jaguars
Point spread: Jets -2, Jaguars +2
Moneyline: Jets -130, Jaguars +110
My pick: Jets -2
Until the Jaguars can cover the spread, they can’t.
Bet on Jets to win by a field goal.
