NFL Week 16 Key Game Previews

Indianapolis Colts vs. Baltimore Ravens – The very first game of NFL’s week 16 will feature the Indianapolis Colts visiting the Baltimore Ravens as enormous betting underdogs. Right now Pinnacle Sports has begged them as 13.5 point dogs on the spread and that number is actually higher than where it started. Seemingly there isn’t a lot of confidence in the Colts at the moment. And, of course, there is good reason for this line of thinking. The Colts haven’t recorded a win in any of their last five starts and they own just three wins on the season. The biggest problems for the Colts recently, and over the entirety of the season, has been the absence of Andrew Luck. Their back up, Jacoby Brissett has done a decent job of racking up passing yards, but has only managed to connect with his receivers eleven times for touchdowns this season. The result of this is that the Colts have averaged just 16 points per game this season. As for the Ravens, things are looking very different for them. They’ve won four out of their last five starts and if they can manage to win their next two games, they will assure themselves a spot in the post season. They’ve been boasting a particularly stout defence, but should also have an easy time overpowering the Colts offensively. They’ve averaged more than 24 points per game this season and in their last five starts they’ve averaged 31. Of course, there’s always history to be considered and that history is falling on the side of the Colts. They’ve won 9 of their last 11 starts against the Baltimore Ravens straight up and 9 of their last 10 against the spread. No one seriously considers this history to have much of an effect on the game given the absence of Andrew Luck, but it’s something to consider none the less.

Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers – The Minnesota Vikings will be visiting the Green Bay Packers in the second Saturday game of week 16 and as they do so they will be 9.0 point betting favourites on the spread. The Vikings are not used to being favoured over a team like Green Bay, but given the recent play of both teams, there’s really no surprise with this result. The Vikings bounced back last week with an impressive win over the Cincinnati Bengals and they have now secured themselves a spot in the post season. Their case this week is further helped by the fact that they’ve already dispatched with the Packers once already this season. Back in October the two faced each other and Minnesota was able to clear the win by a score of 23 to 10. Of course, when they clinched that victory the Packers weren’t in ownership of their starting quarterback for the entirety of the game. Hopefully Green Bay will have Rodgers from start to finish in this one and that can help the outcome. What’s not helping the Packers right now is the fact that they are out of the playoff picture. This is very unfamiliar territory for Green Bay as they’ve made the post season in each of the last eight seasons. There’s no real way of telling just how the Packers will play under this kind of scenario. One thing we can be certain of, however, is that they’ll have a better offence running than they have at other times this season. They may have lost their most recent outing with Rodgers back at the helm, but he didn’t disappoint in bolstering their offensive production in that start. He locked up three touchdowns right out of the gate and will likely be even more well honed for Saturday’s game. Look for Green Bay to have a good chance of covering this week.

Seattle Seahawks vs. Dallas Cowboys – The Seattle Seahawks are in for an especially difficult match up this Monday as they travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys. This game opened up with the Cowboys as 3.0 point favourites on the spread, but things have quickly changed and they are now 5.0 point betting favourites. A big reason for the change is the triumphant return of Ezekiel Elliot. After missing a large chunk of the latter half of the season Elliot will be returning to a line up that is already doing a good job of pulling down wins. The Cowboys have now won their last three starts in a row and they are looking strong on both sides of the ball. They’ve averaged more than 29 points per game during that three game stretch and in that span they’ve also kept their opponents to just 13.6 per game. On the other side of things Seattle is looking worse all the time. They failed to win again last week, falling to the LA Rams by a wide margin. Russell Wilson was serviceable in that game, but not quite productive enough to keep the Seahawks afloat. He notched a single touchdown on just 142 passing yards and the Seahawks will need a lot more fire than that from their offence if they want to come close to touching the Cowboys’ recent numbers. In fact, there are still experts out there that believe the 5.0 point margin is not wide enough for the Seahawks to win against the spread. As for the history between these two teams, things have been falling in favour of the Cowboys more often than not. They’ve won five of their last seven starts against the Seahawks when facing them at home and they’ve accomplished this both straight up and against the spread.
