We have reached week 16 of the NFL season and it kicks off with two games on Saturday that both will have implications on the playoff race. Let’s break down the two games so you can hopefully put a little more cash into your pocket with our ultimate Week 16 Saturday Betting Guide.
Washington Redskins @ Tennessee Titans
The Washington Redskins and the Tennessee Titans face off at 4:30 PM ET. The Titans come into the game as 10 point favorites and the total in the game is set at 37.
The Redskins are still alive for a playoff spot but if they want a realistic chance to make it, they are going to need a win in this game. The Redskins are not a great offensive team and have turned to Josh Johnson who wasn’t even in the league a few weeks ago. He has done an okay job but this isn’t the type of guy who is going to put up 27 or 30 points so the defense is going to need to be good. On the season the Redskins are giving up 22.1 points per game.
The Tennessee Titans are coming into this game having won three games in a row and they are a team that really leans on their defense. On the season they are giving up only 18.1 points per game while the offense is averaging 19.1 points per game. The offense has been better as of late and two of the last three games they have scored over 26 points.
Redskins are 6-0 ATS in their last 6 games in Week 16. Redskins are 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games after allowing less than 250 total yards in their previous game. Titans are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 Saturday games. Titans are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in December.
Over is 6-0 in Redskins last 6 Saturday games. Under is 4-0 in Redskins last 4 games after allowing less than 150 yards passing in their previous game. Under is 4-1 in Titans last 5 games following a straight up win.
Under is 4-1 in Titans last 5 games following a ATS win.
Underdog is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings. Road team is 5-0 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
Baltimore Ravens @ Los Angeles Chargers
The Ravens and the Chargers are the second game to kick off at 8:20 PM ET. The Chargers are 4.5 point favorites and the total is set at 44.5
The Baltimore Ravens have turned to Lamar Jackson and it has resulted in good things. They come into this game having won four of the last five games and they are still alive for a playoff spot and to make it they probably need a win in this game. Since turning to Jackson it has become a run-first team and they really rely on the defense. So far this year they are giving up only 18.1 points per game and that is going to be a key in this game.
Los Angeles Chargers
The Los Angeles Chargers come into this game off probably the most impressive win of the season beating the Kansas City Chiefs in their last game. Phillip Rivers is having one of the best years of his career throwing for 3951 yards, 31 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. On the defensive side they are giving up 21.3 points per game.
Ravens are 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 road games. Ravens are 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game. Chargers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game. Chargers are 5-2 ATS vs. a team with a winning record.
