The NFL season is slowly winding down with two weeks of football left in the regular season. The playoff shuffle has been going strong for the last few weeks as teams jockey for position and try to make the postseason.
The biggest game of the week may be the New Orleans Saints heading into Carolina to face the Panthers for the NFC South Division lead. Carolina is a three-point favorite early in the week with most of the initial action being placed on the Panthers. Cam Newton and company are still a perfect 4-0 ATS as a home favorite, while the Saints are only 1-2 as a road underdog.
The Baltimore Ravens will be a small 1.5-point favorite against the New England Patriots in another matchup that could affect the playoff seeding. Nearly 65 percent of the early action is on the Patriots to plus the points, even though the Ravens are 4-2 ATS as a home favorite, while the Patriots are only 1-2 ATS as a road underdog.
Week 16 will have three 10-point favorites on the board as the Broncos, Seahawks and Chargers are 10- to 10.5-point favorites heading into their respective matchups. Both Seattle and San Diego are double-digit road favorites against the Cardinals and Raiders, respectively. The Seahawks have been a road favorite seven times this season and covered five of those games. The Charges, on the other hand, have been a road favorite three times and have only covered the spread once. Here is a quick look at the rest of the lines for Week 16 of NFL football.
