Week 16 NFL Picks Against the Spread (Beazley)
Every week, four of our contributors pick between two and five games each and assign a number of units (one to five) to their selection based on their confidence in the pick.
With that said, here are my Week 16 NFL picks against the spread:
Pittsburgh Steelers -6 over Baltimore Ravens (5 Units)
Ben Roethlisberger, Le'Veon Bell and Antonio Brown at home? Yes please! The Ravens defense is good, but Ben rolls at home. This game is for the AFC North crown, and I think the Steelers lay the smack down on the Ravens. Ben has a four-TD game in the win. Steelers 37, Ravens 20.
New Orleans Saints -3 over Tampa Bay Buccaneers (5 Units), Over 52.0 (4 units)
I'll take Drew Brees and the Saints at home vs. the Bucs in this one. I believe Brees and the Saints offense has a monster game. I like the over in this one as well. I like the Bucs to keep pace. I like Mike Evans/Cameron Brate for DFS. Saints 37, Bucs 30.
Houston Texans -1.5 over Cincinnati Bengals (5 Units)
Houston technically doesn't need a win here to win the division, but a win gives them some outs just in case they lose to Tennessee next week. I like that Tom Savage is starting this week and I think he gets DeAndre Hopkins the ball a lot. The Bengals have nothing to play for at this point but possibly Marvin Lewis’s job. I think they fall short here. Texans 24, Bengals 21.
