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).


NFL Opening Lines: Week 16

Only two weeks are left in the regular season, and only five playoff spots remain open. Plenty of this week’s NFL odds reflect what is on the line for teams still in the hunt. Here’s a look at some of this week’s NFL opening lines.

One of the biggest games of the week is the New York Giants at New York Jets game. Not only are bragging rights in the city up for grabs, but, more importantly, both teams are trying to take a step towards securing a playoff spot. The Jets are currently a 3-point favorite at TopBet.


NFL Injuries: Quarterbacks Down

Down to the final two weeks of the season, many NFL teams still fighting for a playoff spot or playoff positioning must overcome injuries down the stretch. Here is the NFL injury report heading into Week 16.


NCAAB Betting: Memphis vs. Georgetown

For the second time in a month it’s the Memphis Tigers running up against the Georgetown Hoyas in college hoops betting action on Thursday night at the Verizon Center.

Georgetown got past the Tigers 91-88 in November and has managed to cover the spread in three straight against Memphis. The Hoyas will be a home favorite in this contest, but because of the close affair last time out the pointspread at Bovada should be small.


NHL Lines: Sabres vs. Leafs

The Buffalo Sabres have been reeling of late but so have the Toronto Maple Leafs, and the two teams will go at it on Thursday night at the Air Canada Centre in NHL betting action.

The Sabres got past the Maple Leafs 5-4 in their only head-to-head meeting so far this year just last week, but they have lost four of their last five games. Toronto will be a likely home favorite in this contest at 5Dimes, but expect plenty of action both ways on the NHL betting lines.


Dolphins vs Patriots: Week 16 odds

Miami won its debut under interim coach Todd Bowles but faces a daunting road challenge at Foxboro where they meet the powerful Patriots on the Week 16 NFL betting menu.

OVER bettors immediately grabbed the opening total here as the Pats continue to score in bunches and continue to allow big plays on defense. The Dolphins are actually 5-2 ATS in their past 7 trips here to face their AFC East nemesis and they are 4-0 ATS past 4 road games overall.


Kobe Bryant Divorce Odds Posted

Kobe Bryant has been called many things on the basketball court and many things off it, but odds are this will be the most expensive thing has ever heard or seen.

Wife Vanessa Bryant has cited filed for divorce from the Lakers star, citing the usual irreconcilable differences. Some will wonder why the 2004 charges involving his extra-marital sex with a young Denver-area woman didn’t create this irreconcilable difference, but that’s not for us to judge.

What is for us to judge is how much money we think Kobe will hand over to complete this divorce.


Habs, Bruins on NHL betting lines

Montreal has been plagued by injuries, and their inability to score goals has put them near the bottom of the Eastern Conference standings. The Canadiens will have their hands full against the Boston Bruins when the two Original Six teams meet in NHL betting action on Monday night.

Boston is riding a four-game winning streak and now sits tied atop the Eastern Conference standings with Philadelphia. The Bruins will be home favorites in this contest at 5Dimes and will see the majority of action on the NHL betting lines.


NCAAB Odds: N.C. Greensboro vs. Duke

Duke will carry a perfect 5-0 head-to-head record when they host the N.C. Greensboro Spartans in college basketball betting action on Monday night.

Duke barely got past Washington over the weekend, and they failed to cover the 8-point spread at Bovada in the victory. However, against N.C. Greensboro bettors will be heavily favoring Duke on the college hoops lines.

The Blue Devils have only covered the spread in four of the last 12 games, while 10 of their last 12 games have made winners of OVER bettors in totals betting.


Broncos Patriots Odds Preview

Can Tim Tebow's magic vex the New England Patriots and stretch the Bronco win streak to 7 games?

Denver opened as a 7-point home underdog against a Pats team that struggled to beat Washington a week ago and whose secondary continues to look putrid. The Broncos are 4-1 ATS in their past 5 against the Patriots.

They face a New England team that is 9-2-1 ATS in its past 12 road games.
