NFL Picks Against the Spread (ATS) for Week 16

Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Despite getting shut out last week, Tom Brady and the Bucs are one of four double-digit favorites in Week 16

Maybe you're out of the fantasy football playoffs by now, but that means there's plenty of time to look at betting against the spread. There weren't too many lessons from last week, as favorites went 9-7 and home teams went 8-8, but it should be another exciting slate.
