NFL tips: Our 5/1 four-fold for Week 16
The Saints and Cowboys feature in Jack Green's NFL tips for the penultimate Sunday of the regular season.
Indianapolis Colts to beat Carolina Panthers
The Colts lost to the New Orleans Saints on Monday night but should bounce back against the struggling Panthers.
Carolina have lost six consecutive games and have benched quarterback Kyle Allen, meaning rookie Will Grier will be thrown in for his first career start on Sunday.
These two offenses should be evenly matched, but the Panthers have a clear disadvantage defensively. They rank 29th in points allowed, while Indianapolis rank 17th.
Pittsburgh Steelers to beat New York Jets
The Steelers are on track for a playoff spot despite losing last Sunday, and they’re a good bet to beat a Jets team coming off a 42-21 thrashing by the Baltimore Ravens.
New York have won a few games against bad teams recently, but they rank 28th in points scored and 20th in points allowed this season, so it’s hard to see them beating Pittsburgh.
The Steelers have the NFL’s sixth-best defence and have won seven of their last nine games.
New Orleans Saints to beat Tennessee Titans
The Saints were hugely impressive in their 34-7 victory over the Colts on Monday night, and they’ve now won four of their last five games, only losing a 48-46 thriller to the San Francisco 49ers.
The Titans, meanwhile, saw their four-game winning streak snapped in a huge divisional showdown with the Houston Texans, which they lost 24-21.
Tennessee have been on a great run since they made Ryan Tannehill their starting quarterback in Week 7, but the Saints have won five away games in a row and should keep their push for the NFC’s top seed going with a victory.
Dallas Cowboys to beat Philadelphia Eagles
The Cowboys will lock up a playoff spot and the NFC East title with a win in the biggest game of the weekend.
Philadelphia stayed in the hunt by winning their last two games, but neither victory was convincing. They needed overtime to beat the New York Giants in Week 14, and almost lost to the similarly awful Washington Redskins last weekend.
Dallas had been on an awful run before a convincing 44-21 win over the Los Angeles Rams last weekend, and they won 37-10 when these teams met back in Week 7.
