Beating the Book: Chris Liss Handicaps Week 16
Beating the Book: Chris Liss Handicaps Week 16

This article is part of our Beating the Book series.

Last week was solid as I went 11-4-1 overall, won my best bet (Colts) and went 4-1 in the Supercontest. Unfortunately, I flat-out gave away the Giants-Titans game which I knew was a bad pick.

This week, I especially like the Ravens and 49ers, and the value seems good on the Redskins and Cardinals. I also like the Eagles a bit.

As usual, I'll put my Supercontest picks in the comments.

Redskins +10 at Titans

I thought this line would be 6.5, and I made it 5.5, so I was shocked to see it at 10. These are both teams that like to run the ball and play defense - hence the low total (37). Take the points.

Titans 20 - 16

Ravens +4.5 at Chargers

The Chargers are the better team, but they have little home field advantage, and the Ravens play a mean, nasty '70s-style football that keeps games close. The upgrade from Joe Flacco to Lamar Jackson has been significant too. Take the points.

Ravens 23 - 20


Buccaneers +7 at Cowboys

I made this line 7.5, so I'm on the Cowboys, but I don't feel strongly about it. Dallas is a good team, especially at home, but they play at a slow pace which makes it hard to cover big spreads, and the Bucs defense has quietly shown up the last half of the season.

Cowboys 28 - 20
