NFL Week 16 Outlook; Sunday, Dec. 26, 2021
There are three weeks remaining in the NFL regular season. The season has flown by, but we still have some time to capitalize on betting before the playoffs arise. Week 16 has some tremendous betting opportunities, so let’s start preparing.
Here is your Week 16 betting outlook.
Rams Still Believed to Be Favored In Week 16 Visit To Minnesota
The Minnesota Vikings are right on the playoff bubble after beating the Bears on Monday night. Chicago is not a very good team, and Minnesota did not look very good. The Rams are a much better team than the Vikings.
Minnesota can perform on offense, but their defense is not great. They find a way of getting after the quarterback, but they struggle against good offenses. Los Angeles is rolling behind Matthew Stafford, and they should get some players back from the COVID-19 list.
The Rams offense has gotten back on track during their three-game winning streak, with Matthew Stafford combining for 826 passing yards with eight touchdowns and one interception. Cooper Kupp continues to have a historic season, putting up an absurd 30 catches for 388 yards and four touchdowns over that same span.
The Vikings aren’t a very well-coached team right now. The Rams have a significant advantage in that regard with Sean McVay. Los Angeles Rams also has the superior defense with studs like Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey, as well as Von Miller getting accustomed to his new team.
The Vikings will need their vaunted pass rush to get to Stafford if they’re to have a chance in this game. They’ll also need Kirk Cousins play mistake-free football. Minnesota will have to play their best game of the season in order to pull off the upset here.
The Rams are -3, and nearly all bettors are taking this side of the line. Yet, the Rams are on the road, so Minnesota deserves more respect than they are receiving.
