Tomlin’s Tips: 2020 NFL/NCAA Football Week 16 Bets

by Michael Tomlin
2021 Week 12 Football Bets

It’s going to be quick picks this week because of the holiday so let’s get right to the 2020 NFL/NCAA Football Week 16 Bets.

As always, a simple disclaimer: sports betting should be entertainment. The 2020 NFL/NCAA Football Week 16 Bets will not make you rich. Anyone with picks saying they can make you rich is a liar and I would bet against them.

The 2020 NFL/NCAA Football Week 16 Bets will be about having fun wagering on sports while trying to stay even or break a small profit.

So let’s get to the picks!

All of the information is up to date as of December 26th.

Tomlin’s Tips: 2020 NFL/NCAA Football Week 16 Bets

Best NFL Bets: 3-2 last week, 35-38-1 season

Each week I will pick my five best bets for the NFL weekend. This is similar to the most famous handicapping contest in the world, The Las Vegas Supercontest, where the winner gets over a million bucks.

Arizona Cardinals -5.5 vs. San Francisco 49ers

I mean, did you not just see the Andy Dalton-led Cowboys destroy the 49ers last week? What do you think Kyler Murray will do to them?

Jacksonville Jaguars +8 vs. Chicago Bears

I get it, the Jags are in the driver’s seat for Trevor Lawrence now. But EVERYONE knows that. This is the ultimate zag bet when everyone is zigging to bet against a “tanking” team. However, their head coach and many players are playing for jobs next year. They don’t care about draft positioning. And I’m never going to lay more than a touchdown on the road with Mitch Trubisky.

Atlanta Falcons +11 at Kansas City Chiefs

Over the last six weeks, the Chiefs are the only team in the NFL to not cover a game (depending on closing lines). There is such a high Pat Mahomes tax right now that they are almost an auto-fade.

Los Angeles Rams +3 at Seattle Seahawks

This is another “zag” move. After the worst loss in recent NFL history, the Rams will bounce back.

Green Bay Packers -3 vs. Tennessee Titans

The Packers already had their yearly bad home game against Minnesota. In the other six home games, they are 6-0 with an average margin of victory at thirteen points per game.

Other NFL Games Picked: 6-5 last week, 78-69-1 season

I’ll put my picks in for all of the NFL games. Some people are in pools where they pick every game each week. Home teams are in CAPS.

  • SAINTS -6.5 over Vikings
  • Buccaneers -10 over LIONS
  • RAIDERS +3 over Dolphins
  • CHARGERS -3 over Broncos
  • Browns -9.5 over JETS
  • TEXANS -7 over Bengals
  • Colts +3 over STEELERS
  • Panthers +1 over WASHINGTON
  • RAVENS -10 over Giants
  • Eagles -2.5 over COWBOYS
  • Bills -6.5 over PATRIOTS

Survivor Pool Plays 0-1 last week, 13-2 season

One of the most popular games now is survivor pools. You pick one winner, no spread, every week. You can never use the same team twice.

Cleveland Browns

Rough one last week if you had the Rams. At this point, if you’re still alive, I’m sure your options are slim anyway.

Other Options: Ravens, Chiefs, Buccaneers, Bears 

NFL 10-Point Teaser of the Week: 0-1 last week, 9-6 season

My brother and I’s favorite bet: you take 10 points extra either off the spread or over/under. You combine three different sides with the 10 extra points and all have to hit to win.

Ravens PK, Falcons +21, and Browns +0.5

Let’s change it up and go with two big favorites and a dog in what should be a shootout.

Game Total of the Week: 1-0 last week, 12-3 season

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Indianapolis Colts, UNDER 45.5

Two of the best defenses in the league against two quarterbacks with the combined age of almost eighty.

College Best Bets: 2-3 last week, 41-29-2 season, 4-1 in bowls

I’m just going to run through some quick bowl picks to pick every one of them.

  • Western Kentucky +4 over Georgia State
  • Miami +3 over Oklahoma State
  • Texas -9.5 over Colorado

  • Missouri +14 over Iowa
  • Florida -2.5 over Oklahoma
  • Army +8 over West Virginia
