NFL Week 16 OddsShark Computer Picks

Carolina Panthers Josh Norman

We've reached the late stages of the 2015 NFL campaign, but like any good team, the OddsShark Super Computer is not going to fade down the stretch. According to the Computer, football fans shouldn't expect a lot of tightly contested affairs this week. The Computer, like many NFL bettors this year, is a supporter of the Carolina Panthers as it has tabbed the Panthers to pound the Atlanta Falcons 32.3-13.7.

Considering how the season has gone for both teams, you can't blame the Computer for jumping on the Panthers bandwagon. Carolina ranks as the lone undefeated team in the NFL at 14-0 and has an extremely good shot of going 16-0 with one more matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers remaining after this week. As for the Falcons, well, you can check the week-by-week standings yourself to see just how badly this team has fallen off a cliff in Dan Quinn's first season on the sideline.

Carolina and Atlanta collided on December 13th, a game which bettors backing Matt Ryan and company would like to forget. The Panthers steamrolled the Falcons 38-0 in front of their hometown fans, with MVP favorite Cam Newton tossing three touchdowns for 265 yards in the dominant performance.

Browns Are Yet Again Expected to Be Embarrassed

The Kansas City Chiefs are the hottest team in the NFL on the field and at the betting window. K.C. followed up an ugly 1-5 start to the season by winning eight-straight games and covering the spread seven times during that span. The Computer is predicting one of the worst beat downs of the NFL season with the Chiefs winning 34.6-9.

The Browns simply haven't fared well against good teams this year. Cleveland’s three wins this season have come against teams with a combined 11-28 record.

Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith is far from the flashiest signal-caller in the league, but he does get the job done in an efficient manner. The Chiefs have vaulted themselves into the thick of the playoff hunt in the AFC and are now just one game behind the Denver Broncos for the division lead in the AFC West.

Cardinals Expected to Slow Down Packers

The Green Bay Packers are 4-1 in the past four games with two of those wins coming against NFC North opponents. The Packers need to keep winning to hold onto the lead in the NFC North with the Minnesota Vikings breathing down their necks, but the OddsShark Super Computer is not expecting that to happen. The Computer has picked the Cardinals to top the Pack 28.6-18.7.

The Cardinals (12-2) enter the contest as winners of eight in a row thanks to a high-flying offense led by Carson Palmer. Palmer has followed the path of Kurt Warner and has resurrected his career in the desert, throwing for 32 touchdowns and 4,277 to go along with nine interceptions in the 2015 campaign. The Packers have been a Jekyll and Hyde team all season long, which could spell trouble for the green and gold if Palmer can get the offense humming once again at home.
