NFL Week 17 Betting Picks
The regular season is quickly nearing an end, and Week 17 looks like the final weekend in which all teams will be playing their starters. With playoff spots to be clinched, it’s not too soon to get a jump on these games.
Let’s take a look at which NFL bets to lock in early for Week 17.
Los Angeles Rams (-6) vs. New York Giants
The Giants were owned by the Eagles last season even in what was a successful season for New York. In their first matchup with Philadelphia this season, it might be tough to stay competitive. The Eagles are looking to get themselves right against their first genuinely inferior opponent in quite a while, and it’s unlikely they’ll let up at home as they try to rebuild the momentum they’ve lost.
Tommy DeVito didn’t have much of a chance to breathe against the Saints last Sunday, and the Eagles’ pass-rush has a chance to make a huge impact in this one. That should be enough to leave the Rams favored by a touchdown or more.
With Matthew Stafford playing some of the best football of his career and the offense firing on all cylinders, it’s tough to imagine the Giants staying competitive for very long as long as the weather is decent.
Indianapolis Colts (-3) vs. Las Vegas Raiders
It wouldn’t surprise me to see the Colts settle as 4 or 5-point favorites as this game approaches. Indianapolis showed last week what it can do even without some of its best weapons, but the Colts are working Michael Pittman Jr. and Jonathan Taylor back into the fold. Both should be at full-go for the Week 17 matchup.
The Raiders, meanwhile, have their outlook higher after their 63-21 win than it probably will be at any point the rest of the way. A matchup at Arrowhead Stadium could jolt Las Vegas right back to reality, making it clear that the offense still has work to do.
With this game in Indianapolis and the Colts getting healthier — plus their ability to force turnovers as they go up against a rookie QB — it’s best to ride the AFC South contender’s momentum here.
Green Bay Packers Moneyline (+110) vs. Minnesota Vikings
This line might not see dramatic movement, but it’s hard to see many scenarios in which the line moves in Minnesota’s direction after this weekend. The Packers are facing the Panthers, which gives Joe Barry an opportunity to get his struggling defense back on track against what has been the NFL’s most dismal passing game.
Jordan Love has been playing fairly well, even in losses, so with a less potent offense on the other side, he should be able to do enough for a comfortable Green Bay win and build some momentum entering Week 17.
The Vikings’ defense hit some bumps against the Bengals, and Minnesota faces a tough assignment against a potent Lions offense this weekend. The path to victory is much clearer for the Packers, which could shift this line, and I’ll trust a Love-led offense over a Mullens-led offense in primetime the following week.
New York Jets (+6) vs. Cleveland Browns
The Joe Flacco story has been fun, but it’s fair to be concerned about the veteran against a tough Jets defense after his mistakes nearly buried the Browns against the Bears last week. Cleveland is also dealing with even more absences than before after losing four players (including three defenders) to season-ending injuries in Week 14. Could it catch up to them in the form of a closer than expected game against the Jets?
This should be a defensive battle all around, and New York’s defense has plenty of familiarity with Flacco. Zach Wilson should be back in the fold for the Jets, though he might not fare so well against a Myles Garrett-led pass-rush.
If the Jets can limit the Browns’ streaky offense, this game can stay within a handful of points, and a strong showing by New York against the Commanders – or a slog for the Browns in Houston – may shrink this line by a point or two.
