NFL Week 16 Picks Against the Spread
The Chiefs will Cover -10 Against the Steelers
The Chiefs had some bad news this week and when they host the Steelers they will be without tight end Travis Kelce.
— Around The NFL (@AroundTheNFL) December 26, 2021
Kelce is a big part of this offense and that is why over 60 percent of the public is betting on Pittsburgh. However, Kansas City is playing very good football. The Chiefs have won seven games straight and they have covered five of those.
The Steelers seem to falter late in the season with a 3-8 ATS record in the last 11 games in December. This is the swan song for Ben Roethlisberger, but the Chiefs defense will be able to exploit his weaknesses. He no longer has the mobility or the arm strength to get the job done. The Chief’s defense can shorten the field and put pressure on Ben to turn over the ball.
The Chiefs are 5-0 ATS as a favorite and the cover the big number.
Washington will cover +9.5 Against the Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys are one of the best teams in the league. They have covered 11 out of 14 games this year and if they win and cover today they will have the best mark in the league. But don’t look for that to happen. The Cowboy’s defense has played well this season, but the offense has been inconsistent.
Ron Rivera knows how to motivate his team when they are big underdogs. Washington is 4-1-1 ATS as an underdog and they are 1-0-1 ATS when they are double-digit underdogs. This includes a big outright win against Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 10. This rivalry has been closely contested for years as the underdog is 29-14 ATS in the last 43 meetings.
Until the Cowboys can get the offense clicking, they cannot cover a big number against a motivated rival. Washington is 10-4 ATS in the last 14 games in Dallas and they cover again today.
