Sal’s Week 16 NFL Picks: Happy Holidays

Last week: 6-9-1

Season: 106-108-1

I missed Thursday’s game this week, but I probably would have lost that one as I would have picked Houston. Looks like it’s 20 minutes before halftime so I better hurry up and get to the picks.

New England -9

The Pats destroyed the Dolphins earlier this season and they still want to lock down the #1 seed in the AFC and home field advantage throughout the playoffs.

Baltimore -11

Similar to the Pats pick above. Baltimore still has something to play for and will try as hard they can to keep up with the Pats.

Arizona +4.5

Both teams desperate for the playoffs. I expect a close game.

Minny +6.5

AP angry from last weeks ugly loss. Washington coming off big rivalry win…letdown coming

Denver -3

Tebow and friends need this one bad to stave off the hot Chargers

Pittsburgh -10

I don’t love this pick, but I can’t back the Rams…ever

NYJ -3

This will be a bruising battle. The Jets are better at home, the Giants seem to stink it up in NYC

Carolina -9

Cam Newton gone wild. Tampa just playing out the string.

Titans -8

Slim slim playoff hopes, but still there so expect an all out effort

KC -2.5

Orton looks good under centre and the Raiders are in pure free fall mode.

San Diego +1.5

The Chargers are going to make the playoffs…they are money in December

Eagles +1

Dallas has a bunch of banged up stars and may rest them if NYG lose earlier in the day.

Seattle +1

Seattle is desperate and San Fran is coming off a monster win. Can Marshawn keep his TD streak alive against a team that doesn’t allow rushing TD’s?

Green Bay -11

Josh McCown starting for the Bears…that’s all I need to know.

 

Good Luck everyone and have a safe and merry Christmas!

Don’t blow all your money on those ridiculous boxing day deals either!
