NFL Week 16 - Bodog Odds and Predictions

Week 16 of the NFL season is upon us! Hard to believe that the NFL regular season will soon be over. It’s been a wild year so far, and no team appears unbeatable this year. Even the mighty Titans have looked mortal in recent weeks, and it’s anybody’s guess as to who will walk away with this year’s Superbowl title.

Last week, I compiled a record of 4-7-1 against the line set by Bodog’s sportsbook. That brings my season total to 83-71-3. Not bad, but I plan on improving it before the year is done. I’ll be making picks all the way through to the SuperBowl, so be sure to check back weekly with Dare to Gamble.


Before making any wagers this week, here are some injuries that you might want to take a look at:

Marion Barber (Cowboys RB) Toe

Kellen Winslow (Browns TE) Ankle

Reggie Bush (Saints RB) Placed on IR

Deuce McAllister (Saints RB) Knee

Kevin Smith (Lions RB) Ankle

Adrian Peterson (Vikings RB) Ankle

Anquan Boldin (Cardinals WR) Shoulder

Brandon Jacobs (Giants RB) Knee

Frank Gore (49ers RB) Ankle

Kevin Curtis (Eagles WR) Calf

Zach Miller (Raiders TE) Shoulder

Matt Hasselbeck (Seahawks QB) Back

Jeff Garcia (Bucs QB) Calf

Matt Forte (Bears RB) Toe


Here are my picks for this week. As always, my selections are in bold print:

Ravens +4 @ Cowboys -4

Steelers -2 @ Titans +2

Dolphins -4 @ Chiefs +4

Cardinals +8 @ Patriots -8

Bengals +3 @ Browns -3

49ers -5 ½ @ Rams +5 ½

Saints -7 @ Lions +7

Chargers +3 ½ @ Buccaneers -3 ½

Jets -4 ½ @ Seahawks +4 ½

Texans -7 @ Raiders +7

Bills +7 @ Broncos -7

Eagles -5 @ Redskins +5

Falcons +3 @ Vikings -3

Panthers +3 @ Giants -3
