NFL Props: Who Will Make the Playoffs?

With just two weeks left in the NFL's regular season, the question on everyone’s mind is “who is going to make the playoffs?” This week’s NFL prop betting gives bettors a chance to wager on which teams they believe will find their way into the NFL playoffs and which teams will end up on the outside looking in.

Here’s a look at the teams available to bet on at Bovada in Week 16 to make or miss the playoffs, as well as a prop bet on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Buffalo Bills.


NFL Betting Setup: Injury Updates

Only two weeks of the NFL's regular season remain, and injury reports become particularly tricky this time of year as teams battling for playoff positioning must decide whether to protect injured players from further injury or play them in hopes of earning a higher seed.

Here are the most recent injury updates for this week, as well as some NFL weather updates.

NFL Line Moves: Week 16 Odds

Only four games this week had NFL line movements of one full point or more as most games had lines that either stayed steady or only moved a half of a point. With only two weeks remaining in the NFL regular season, bettors and bookmakers seem to see eye to eye on most games down the stretch.

Here’s a look at the exceptions to that rule in the biggest NFL line movements of Week 16.

Colts vs Texans Thursday Pick

The Houston Texans lost predictably in Week 15 and may be in line to do it again when they visit the Indianapolis Colts.

After clinching in Week 14, Houston lost at home to Carolina and this week visit the Colts, who come off a big win that broke their imperfect season. Logic dictates the Colts will have more motivation here, while the Texans nurse injuries.

Houston has never won at Indy, going 0-9 SU in their franchise history - but they are 8-2 ATS in their past 10 games as a favorite and they opened at -6 at most online sportsbooks.


Eagles vs. Cowboys betting

The Eagles remain in the playoff hunt despite starting the year 4-8 and can put huge pressure on Dallas with a Week 16 win visiting the Cowboys.

Dallas opened as small 1-point home chalk and a loss would imperil the Cowboys' NFC East title. If the Eagles win here and next week against the Redskins, while Dallas loses its finale against the Giants, the Eagles would be 8-8 champions because of a better division record.


Week 16 NFL Picks

Week 15 ended with a 9-7 ATS run for the Odds Shark NFL picks engine and it was 11-5 picking totals.

Heading into Week 16, the computer is picking a bunch of underdogs, so check out the picks and check out the latest lines to find the best wagering value.

Handicappers at Odds Shark don't like the computer's first pick for Thursday, where it has the visiting Texans easily covering the spread. We expect a tough fight from the Colts and a half-hearted effort (along with no Andre Johnson).
