Potential Super Bowl Previews Highlight Week 16

by WagerHome Blog on December 22, 2023

This week we have an NFL scheduling treat that is worthy of leaving for Santa, in place of his normal cookies and milk.

On Sunday we get the two highest scoring teams in the NFL going head-to-head when the Cowboys visit the Dolphins. Then on Monday the two top seeds in the NFL playoffs meet when the Ravens visit the 49ers.

It’s two of the best matchups of the season, and it comes on the best weekend of the year.

Dallas Cowboys at Miami Dolphins (-1)

The Dolphins are scoring the most points per game in the NFL, and the Cowboys are right behind them in second. Both of these teams are in first place in their divisions, and as things stand today, they are the second playoff seeds in each of their respective conferences.

But there are also inconsistencies with each team that make this an interesting game. For all of their high-octane scoring, when playing a team with a winning record, the Dolphins have yet to win. Miami has gotten fat off beating bad teams – the Patriots and Jets twice each, the Chargers, Giants, Panthers, Raiders, and Commanders.

When playing Kansas City, Buffalo, and Philadelphia, they lost.

There is a similar criticism for the Cowboys. They do have wins over the Eagles and Seahawks, but when going on the road against a winning team, Dallas loses. The 49ers, at the Eagles, and last week at Buffalo.

One of these two teams will answer these criticisms. Either Dallas beats a good team on the road, or Miami beats a winning team. We’ll find out Christmas Eve.

Baltimore Ravens at San Francisco 49ers (-5)

The Ravens and 49ers are tied for the best record in the NFL at 11-3, and as of today they are the top seeds in the AFC and NFC. They also come into this game playing great football.

Baltimore comes into this Christmas night game on a four-game winning streak, with a dominating 23-7 win at Jacksonville last week. San Francisco is on a six-game winning streak, and all six of those wins have been by at least 12 points. The average win has been 19 points.

The 49ers have the best scoring defense in the NFL. The Ravens are second. They are ranked third and fourth in points scored, and the Ravens have the best rushing team in the NFL while the 49ers are the most efficient passing team.

This game also features Brock Purdy, the MVP betting favorite, Lamar Jackson, the second betting favorite, and Christian McCaffrey, the fourth betting favorite and NFL touchdown leader.

It’s the perfect way to end Christmas weekend.
