Week 16 the last real week of the NFL regular season since next week we will see a lot of backups and teams playing for nothing. A lot of interesting things to look at this week including ticket and money differential and some interesting reverse line movement.
TEAMS TICKET % MONEY %
Detroit 64 43
Cincinnati 36 57
LA Rams 66 59
Tennessee 34 41
Jacksonville 64 52
San Francisco 36 48
Reverse Line Movement
TENNESSEE +6.5 or 7 vs LA RAMS
Not going to be a prisoner of the moment and ride the momentum wave with the LA Rams after their beatdown of the Seattle. Tennessee matches up pretty well with the Rams. Tennessee is 11th in rush plays per game, and the Rams defense allows 4.7 yards per rush, which is the 2nd worst in the NFL. On the flip side the Rams love to run the football, BUT Tennessee defense ranks in the top 5 in yards allowed per a rush. Add the fact the Rams are traveling all the way across the country to help Tennessee’s cause. Rams might end up winning this game but definitely not by a touchdown or more, so try to get Tennessee at 7 if you can. LOCK OF THE WEEK CALL
JACKSONVILLE VS SAN FRANCISCO +4
The Jaguars defense is really, really good, but……I’m buying the hype of Jimmy G. Not a fan of teams traveling across the country, plus the Jaguars might have the division wrapped up by the time this game kicks off. Also like the fact that this game opened at 5.5 and has dropped to 4 and most of the bets are for Jacksonville, so a lot of big bets have come in on San Francisco. I will ride with the Sharp bettors and fade the public here and take the 49ers here. (BTW, future bet the Jaguars to win the Super Bowl, it’s happening!
LA Chargers vs NY Jets +6.5
Here is a 100 percent Gut call, just hear me out. Chargers just played an emotional game to possibly win their division and got absolutely blown out. To make matters worst they have to travel all the way across the country and play a 1pm game. The Jets love to run the ball and the Chargers have one of the worst run defenses in the league. I smell upset!
