Week 16 NFL Odds: Points Spreads & Game Previews

NFL favorites cashed in for bettors for an eighth time in the past nine weeks. Amazingly, favorites went 15-1 straight up and 10-5-1 against the spread. It was one of the worst weeks of the season for the books because nearly all of these favorites covered their teaser lines, too.

Some of the biggest games lived up to the hype. The Patriots snatched victory from the jaws of defeat with a 27-24 win at Pittsburgh in the biggest game of the weekend. On the other end of the spectrum, the Rams stunned the Seahawks 42-7 in Seattle to take control of the NFC West.
