Early NFL Week 17 Bets to Place

The NFL regular season has reached a critical point, with plenty of playoff spots still to be filled. Week 17 might bring some more clinches. The matchups aren’t as compelling as Week 16 or Week 18, but there are still some great opportunities to find value. Take a look at which bets are worth locking in sooner rather than later.

Dallas Cowboys (-6) vs. Tennessee Titans

The Titans are rapidly fading in the NFC South, and their downfall is poised to continue without Ryan Tannehill at quarterback. Yes, Tennessee was able to keep up with the Chiefs when Malik Willis was under center, but Mike Vrabel’s defense has declined as the season has progressed. Dak Prescott and CeeDee Lamb could have a field day in Nashville considering the state of the Titans’ pass defense and the number of opportunities they’ll get if Tannehill is out.

This isn’t the best opportunity for line movement, as the Titans face the Texans in Week 16 while the Cowboys face the Eagles, but it wouldn’t be shocking at all if Tennessee got into a close game with Houston considering the complete lack of a passing game. That could be enough to move this line to a touchdown or more in favor of Dallas.

New York Giants (-3.5) vs. Indianapolis Colts

I can’t trust the Colts right now. Yes, they’ve played competitively more often than not under Jeff Saturday, but the late-game implosions against Dallas and Minnesota are probably closer to the reality of the situation for Indianapolis. Jonathan Taylor is out for the remainder of the season, they’re on their third quarterback, and they’re officially eliminated.

The Giants are far from perfect, but this is the kind of offensive line they can beat up on with Kayvon Thibodeaux breaking out. With the Colts set to lose comfortably to the Chargers and the Giants facing a big opportunity to establish themselves in Minnesota, I can only see this line moving toward New York if there is, in fact, some movement.

Minnesota Vikings (+3) vs. Green Bay Packers

Are we overestimating the Packers after two wins over bad teams? It seems like this season has been one step forward and two steps back for Green Bay. A Christmas Day game against the Dolphins in Miami may be a big step back, especially with Tua Tagovailoa and the Dolphins offense playing with something to prove. If the Packers are sent back to reality in Miami, I’d expect oddsmakers to give the Vikings a little more credit.

The early forecast indicates this game at Lambeau Field won’t be played in freezing temperatures, so the Packers might not have as much of an advantage as some believe. The Vikings aren’t always the most convincing team, but they cruised past the Packers once this season. Minnesota +3 is a nice value right now.

Cincinnati Bengals (+2.5) vs. Buffalo Bills

The Bills continue to look like one of the best teams in the AFC, but have they looked extremely convincing in recent weeks? I’m not sure they’ve looked convincing enough to be favorites in Cincinnati, where the Bengals beat the Chiefs not too long ago. Cincinnati’s defense looks tremendous right now, and the offense is never a concern with Joe Burrow and his collection of weapons.

A win over the Patriots this weekend would take the Bengals to 11-2 over their last 13 games and potentially tighten this line. This one feels winnable with the way Cincinnati is playing. Bengals +2.5 is a nice value as it stands now.
