The quickest way to boost your sports betting bankroll is to win moneyline upset bets. Last week a $100 parlay on moneyline upsets from Eagles +500, Redskins +270, 49ers +200, Chargers +175, Steelers +135, and the Browns +105 would of paid out over $80,000. Now let’s look to Week 16, I have a trio of moneyline upset alerts for NFL Week 16 betting action.
Moneyline Upset Alerts NFL Week 16
Tampa Bay Buccaneers +270 at Dallas Cowboys -330
When: Sunday, Dec. 23 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: AT&T Stadium, Arlington, TX
Stream: Fox Sports Go
Analysis: The Cowboys could get nothing going against the Indianapolis Colts in a 23-0 loss in Week 15. That’s the problem Dallas has. If the defense doesn’t perform up to standards, the Cowboys can’t keep up.
Tampa Bay quarterback Jameis Winston’s not nearly as good as the Colts’ Andrew Luck. The Bucs’ defense has played great in the past month, though. Tampa Bay will have a shot to keep this one close because the defense can keep Dallas from getting too far ahead.
If the Bucs keep it close deep into the fourth quarter, they’ll have a shot at the SU victory.
Week 16 Upset Alert: Tampa Bay Buccaneers +270
Chicago Bears -200 at San Francisco 49ers +170
When: Sunday, Dec. 23 at 4:05 pm ET
Where: Levi’s Stadium, Santa Clara, CA
Stream: Fox Sports Go
Analysis: The Bears won the NFC North Division in Week 15 after beating the rival Green Bay Packers 24-17. Although Chicago’s been a winning and covering beast this season, they have tended to fall apart on the road. Miami beat Chicago 31-28 as a +7.5 home dog. The Giants beat the Bears 27-23 on the moneyline as a +4 home dog.
The San Francisco 49ers from 3 weeks ago might have no shot at the straight-up victory in Week 16. But this version of the 49ers has been terrific. SF upset Denver as a home dog in Week 14. In Week 15, they upset the Seattle Seahawks as a home dog. San Francisco can beat the Bears who might take a breather after pocketing the division title.
Week 16 Upset Alert: San Francisco 49ers +170
Kansas City Chiefs -135 at Seattle Seahawks +115
When: Sunday, Dec. 22 at 8:20 pm ET
Where: CenturyLink Field, Seattle, WA
Stream: NBC Sports Live
Analysis: The Chiefs had the Chargers on the ropes. They failed to close to the deal on their AFC West rival and must now hope the Chargers lose to the Ravens while they beat Seattle to win the division.
That won’t happen. There are massive chinks in KC’s armor. For starters, quarterback Patrick Mahomes hasn’t dominated as he did earlier in the season. Mahomes faces a decent Seattle defense on Sunday.
Also, the Seahawks are hungry after losing to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 15. Seattle should have no trouble rushing right through KC’s porous defense, which allows 127 yards on the ground per game. Kansas City loses its second straight.
Week 16 Upset Alert: Seattle Seahawks +115
