WhatIfSports NFL Simulation Week 16 Picks

Rams (+13.5) cover against Seahawks

In Week 1, St. Louis beat Seattle in overtime. Sure, a lot has changed for both teams since then, but we think the 13.5-point spread is aggressive. In 501 simulations, the Seahawks were victorious 75.0 percent of the time, beating the Rams by an average score of 27-18. The Rams covered the spread 64.1 percent of the time. View the box score.

Panthers (-6.5) cover against Falcons

Last week, the Panthers burned us, giving up 21 fourth-quarter points to the Giants and failing to cover the spread in their three-point victory. We’re not holding a grudge though, and we’ll take the Panthers again in Week 16. We simulated Panthers vs. Falcons and Carolina came out on top 79.8 percent of the time, winning by an average score of 27-15. View the box score.

Colts (-1.5) upset Dolphins

Indianapolis has dropped three in a row, but we’re predicting a change of fortunes in Week 16. Miami has had its shares of struggles and is ripe for an upset. We played the two teams head-to-head 501 times to predict the outcome and Indy won 55.2 percent of simulations, covering the spread 59.1 percent of the time. (The simulations were conducted with a 2.5-point spread). View the box score
