If your Christmas wish was to have more NFL primetime games to bet on, you are in luck! Of course we had our standard Monday Night Football, but this week we’re in for a Christmas feast of pigskin as we get a double header on Tuesday, Thursday Night Football, and another double header on Christmas Day before the main lineup of games on Sunday and of course, Monday Night Football. That means only two nights this week without NFL action, and even more chances than usual for you to do your research and get some extra holiday cheer in your bankroll.
Let’s go through the primetime games this week and once you’ve got all of the info you need there’s only one place you will need to go to place your bets. That’s our Football odds comparison page where you can see odds on every game across multiple sportsbooks all at once.
This week’s bonus football starts with the Washington Football Team heading to Philadelphia to take on the Eagles. Both teams have identical 6-7 records and need this win to stay alive in the postseason hunt. Both teams have vastly improved as the season has gone on with Phili winning three out of their last five and Washington winning four straight before losing a close game last week.
The Eagles are 6.5 point favorites as the Football Team is just trying to piece together a playable roster. Honestly I’m surprised the spread isn’t larger considering on Friday Washington had 23 players put on COVID reserve including their starting and backup QB.
It’s looking like Garrett Gilbert will get the start for Washington, but regardless I’m taking the Eagles to win by more than a touchdown and I like the under at 42.5 total points as Washington will struggle to score in this one.
Our Tuesday Night stocking stuffer is a classic NFC West rivalry as the Seattle Seahawks fight through the LA traffic to play the Rams. Postponing this game allowed the Rams to get healthier, but unfortunately it also allowed the Seahawks to get sicker. They’ll be without running backs Travis Homer and Alex Collins, as well as wideout Tyler Lockett. The biggest piece missing for the Rams looks to be tight end Tyler Higbee.
These two played back in Week 5 when L.A. won 26-17. However, we shouldn’t forget that this was the game Russell Wilson broke the finger on his throwing hand. Even though Wilson has been back now for a few weeks, he hasn’t looked his normal self and the offense has struggled to produce.
I think this changes Tuesday Night against a depleted Rams defense. I don’t think the Seahawks will win, but take them to cover the seven point spread, and take the total points which currently sit at 45.5 to go over.
The last Thursday Night Football game of the season features the Tennessee Titans hosting the San Francisco 49ers. Week 15 saw the Niners manhandle the Falcons 31-13, while the Titans stumbled to a 13-16 loss against the Steelers after being up 13-3 at halftime.
After losing Derrick Henry and A.J. Brown, the Titans’ once deadly offense has struggled to navigate opponents territory more than Santa Claus on a foggy night without Rudolph. It’s no surprise then that the Titans are 3.5 point underdogs even at home for this contest.
I won’t tell you who to bet now, but I will tell you to monitor the health of Brown, who may be cleared to play in this contest. The Titans are 2-4 in games without Brown, but 7-1 in games where he starts and stays healthy throughout. Keep an eye out as we get closer to Thursday and if Brown is cleared to suit up take the Titans to both cover, and win straight up. If he misses, roll with the 49ers.
Unwrap some presents, watch that one family member drink too much and get awkwardly political, then tune in to watch the Cleveland Browns play the Green Bay Packers on Christmas Day.
The Browns go into this game on short rest as their Week 15 game was rescheduled for Monday Night. The Packers struggled to get past the Lamar Jackson-less Ravens in their matchup.
In all likelihood the Browns will have QB Baker Mayfield back under center along with the 18 other players who missed Monday Night’s game vs. the Raiders. How much it will help though, is hard to say. Aaron Rogers and the Packers are 11-3 and are hitting their normal late season stride so I don’t see the Browns beating them in Green Bay, after time away from the facility and on a short week. Most of the major online sportsbooks currently have the Packers at -7.5 and I would jump on that now before it swells even higher.
The Colts come into Week 16 hot after a 10 point win over the New England Patriots. The Cardinals had a large lump of coal dropped into their stocking when they were embarrassed by the Detroit Lions on their way to a 30-12 loss. Adding insult to injury, the Cardinals once staunch run defense allowed Craig Reynolds (yes THE Craig Reynolds) to run for 112 yards!
Now they have to go up against Jonathan Taylor and the Colts O-line. After being the last remaining undefeated team in the league, the Cardinals have lost four of their last seven games and could potentially lose their lead in the NFC West.
The Cardinals are 3.5 point favorites, but I like the Colts to cover and win in an upset here. I think the pressure will be too much for the Cards who are once again without top receiver Deandre Hopkins, and the defense won’t be able to contain Taylor who will find his way into the endzone at least once and likely eclipse the century mark on the ground.
That’s nowhere even close to covering all of the NFL action for Week 16. If you want the full breakdown be sure to head to our NFL News page on Friday for a full report on every Sunday game as well as betting guides for the Sunday and Monday Night Football matchup.
