Week 16 NFL Picks Against the Spread (Trifone)

Every week, four of our contributors pick between two and five games each and assign a number of units (one to five) to their selection based on their confidence in the pick.

With that said, here are John Trifone's Week 16 NFL picks against the spread:

Tennessee Titans +7 over Los Angeles Rams (4 Units)

I picked against the Titans last week at San Francisco and still think they are overrated. However, there’s a couple reasons I like them this week. The Rams are coming off a monstrous win at Seattle that nobody saw coming. They clearly had something to prove and got up for that game.

Traveling to Tennessee this week could be a classic let-down. Tennessee, on the other hand, suffered a devastating loss to drop to 8-6, and damaging their playoff hopes. They will play like a desperate team, and getting a full touchdown at home, I like the Titans with the points.

Cleveland Browns +6.5 over Chicago Bears (4 Units)

Chicago should not be favored by close to a touchdown against anyone in the league. The Browns are still looking for their first win of the year, and I expect them to play with some professional pride at Chicago. They’ve come close a few times. I like them to get the job done this week and get the outright win here.

Buffalo Bills +12 over New England Patriots (3 Units)

If the playoffs started today, Buffalo would be in as the sixth seed. It’s going to come down to the wire with the Bills, Titans, Ravens and Chargers vying for two spots. Beating New England on the road is a pretty tall order, and I don’t think they’ll do it, but I do think they can make it a game. I will take the Bills with the points.

- Note: All of our NFL picks against the spread will be centralized here.
