Week 16 Pro Football Betting Insights

The NFL regular season is almost over, but there is still plenty to play for, especially for the teams that are trying to earn one of the final playoff berths. Here is a look at some of the biggest games to watch this week.

Baltimore Ravens (9-5) vs. Houston Texans (7-7), Sunday, December 21, 1 PM. ET. CBS.

After missing out on the playoffs last season, the Ravens have a great chance of getting back in, if they can win their remaining two games this season. Fortunately for them, they will be playing a team that has a lot of concerns at the quarterback position, who have three injured quarterbacks on their roster, and will be staring their fourth quarterback of the season on Sunday.

The Texans chances of making the playoffs got a little harder because of their quarterback situation, Case Keenum, who was signed by the team this week, knows their offense, but was winless as their starter last season. He will be getting Andre Johnson back from injury this week, and a healthy Arian Foster in the backfield, giving him a good chance to lead the team to its first victory with him under center.

Game Line: The Ravens are favored to win this game by 5 points, the Over/Under is 41 points.

Personal Pick: The Texans will surprise the Ravens, and get the win.

Kansas City Chiefs (8-6) vs. Pittsburgh Steelers (9-5), Sunday, December 21, 1 PM. ET. CBS.

Kansas City has to win this game if they want to make it into the playoffs, so expect them to come in much focused. They will try to exploit the Steelers pass defense, which is 25th in the league, but their receivers haven't been consistent this year, which will make it tough for them to do. Jamaal Charles suffered a concussion in their last game, and might not be able to go in this game, so expect Knile Davis to get the ball a lot.

The Steelers have been winning games this season thanks to their offense, especially LeVeon Bell and Ben Roethlisberger, but they will be facing one of the toughest defenses they have played all year. Fortunately for them, they have the second best passing game in the NFL, while the Chiefs have the 30th ranked pass defense, so they should be able to throw the ball.

Game Line: The Steelers are favored to win by 3 points, the Over/Under is 46.5 points.

Personal Pick: The Chiefs won't be able to slow Ben Roethlisberger down, and will lose the game.

Seattle Seahawks (10-4) vs. Arizona Cardinals (11-3), Sunday, December 21, 8:30 PM. ET. NBC.

The Seahawks have won four straight games, and are starting to look like the best team in football again, which is bad news for the Cardinals and the rest of the NFC. They have already defeated Arizona once this season, so a second win will give them the NFC West title, if both teams finish with the same record. They will continue doing what has been working well for them, which is to get the ball to Marshawn Lynch on offense, and get out of hisway.

The Cardinals are staring their third quarterback this season, and their backup running back, but are still very confident about their chances of winning this game. They will need their defense to step up big time, in this game, because their offense will struggle against the Seahawks, especially without their starting quarterback and running back.

Game Line: Seattle is favored in this game by 8 points, the Over/Under is 36.5 points.

Personal Pick: Despite not having some of their key players, the Cardinals will put up a good fight, but it won't be enough to get the win.

Denver Broncos (11-3) vs. Cincinnati Bengals (9-4-1), Monday, December 22, 8:30 PM. ET.

The Broncos have won the AFC West for the fourth straight time, and now have their sights set on the top seed in the AFC. It will be a little tougher for them to get it this season, because they will need to win out, and hope the Patriots lose one of their final two games. They will be going for their fifth straight win against the Bengals, and third straight on the road.

The Bengals have a tough road ahead of them, but they will have to find a way to win the tough games, if they want to make the playoffs, starting with their home game against the Broncos on Monday night. Cincinnati will have a tough time running the ball against a stout Denver defense, which means Andy Dalton will need to play very well for them to win this game.

Game Line: The Broncos are favored to win the game by 3 points, the Over/Under is 47.5 points.

Personal Pick: The Bengals will come prepared, but won't have enough to slow down Denver's potent offense.
