I am back for another season and taking on the oddsmakers and helping you try to take down whatever type of football pool you’re in. Here are my Office Pool Picks for Week 16.
16 Bills at CHI
15 Chiefs vs. SEA
14 Bucs at ARI
13 Chargers at IND
12 Ravens vs. ATL
11 Bengals at NE
10 Cowboys vs. PHI
9 Dolphins vs. GB
8 49ers vs. WAS
7 Browns vs. NO
6 Titans vs. HOU
5 Vikings vs. NYG
4 Lions at CAR
3 Steelers vs. LV
2 Jets vs. JCK
1 Rams vs. DEN
Season Record: 139-83-2
Get ready for this week’s NFL action with James Adams & Skeeter Robinson…
Each week I will pick two games, my “Play it Safe” selection as well as my “Out on a Limb” pick:
Play It Safe (13-2): Bills at CHI
Assuming you have them, the Bills are my top pick of the week. Josh Allen loves these winter conditions and Buffalo just has far too many more ways to beat you than the Bears do.
Out on a Limb (7-8): Bucs at ARI
Betting on this Bucs’ team is scary as hell, but with the Cards on their third-string QB I am willing to stick my neck out here.
THURSDAY NIGHT SPECIALS
Look for my “Against the Spread” plays in a separate article that will run each Saturday this season. Here I will look at my Thursday night betting recommendation.
$110 Jets -1.5 (-115 FanDuel)
Season total: (9-5 on season; +$260 season total)
Both teams have a ton to play for here and both are missing key players. Zach Wilson scares me, but I am betting on the Jets’ D here in what should be a rain-soaked affair with a ton of playoff implications.
