Sunday, Jan 2.

Carolina Panthers vs. New Orleans Saints

  • 2021 NFL Week 17 Odds: New Orleans Saints -7

The Panthers are playing like the worst team in the NFL. Yes, worse than the Jaguars or Jets. Even if the Saints aren’t one-hundred percent, they should dust the Panthers by at least 14 points.

NFL Week 17 Pick: Saints

Miami Dolphins vs. Tennessee Titans

  • 2021 NFL Week 17 Odds: Tennessee Titans -3.5

Tennessee plays another hot team. Miami is one of the strongest teams in the NFL right now. The Titans must win this to take the AFC South. So Tennessee will have motivation. But Miami might be the better team and Tua shouldn’t make the mistakes that Jimmy G. made in Week 16, which cost the 49ers the game. Miami can win this straight up.

NFL Week 17 Pick: Dolphins

Las Vegas Raiders vs. Indianapolis Colts

  • 2021 NFL Week 17 Odds: Indianapolis Colts -8.5

The Colts should get most of their offensive line back as well as their secondary players. If that happens, the line will explode to 10. But don’t worry if you don’t want to back Indianapolis at the current line. You can wait. The Colts will cover even if it goes to -10.

NFL Week 17 Pick: Colts

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Cincinnati Bengals

  • 2021 NFL Week 17 Odds: Kansas City Chiefs -4

Joe Burrow played out of his mind in the amazing 41-21 win against the Baltimore Ravens. Dropping 4 TD passes and over 500 yards against KC won’t be easy. But the Chiefs don’t always play well on the road. So Cincinnati will have a chance to not only cover but to also win this on the moneyline.

NFL Week 17 Pick: Bengals

Houston Texans vs. San Francisco 49ers

  • 2021 NFL Week 17 Odds: San Francisco 49ers -15

This line make the 49ers an underlay. Jimmy Garoppolo can’t be trusted. He blew San Francisco’s chance to beat the Tennessee Titans in NFL Week 16. The Texans are playing well, which is why taking the 15 points makes sense.

NFL Week 17 Pick: Texans

Arizona Cardinals vs. Dallas Cowboys

  • 2021 NFL Week 17 Odds: Dallas Cowboys -3

Dallas should cover this with their eyes closed. Arizona has imploded and since they’ve already made the playoffs, there’s no motivation. The Cowboys’ offense could drop another 50. 35 to 42 will suffice.

NFL Week 17 Pick: Cowboys

Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers

  • 2021 NFL Week 17 Odds: Green Bay Packers -6.5

The Vikings’ defense played well and Kirk Cousins and the offense gave it their all. But the Rams proved too much. However, Green Bay shouldn’t be more than a -3.5 favorite. Even then, the Vikings would be the team to back. Green Bay is due for a loss based on how they’ve played in their last couple of games. The Vikings already beat GB this season. Minnesota moneyline is the play.

NFL Week 17 Pick: Vikings

Monday, Jan. 3rd/h3>

Cleveland Browns vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

  • 2021 NFL Week 17 Odds: Pittsburgh Steelers -1

At home, we’ve got to believe the Steelers get it done. Pittsburgh had no shot versus Kansas City. But that’s the Chiefs. Baker Mayfield is a liability at quarterback and the Browns’ defense looked terrible in the first half against the Packers. Big Ben leads the Steelers a step closer to a playoff berth.

NFL Week 17 Pick: Steelers
