NFL Week 17 Picks Against the Spread

Posted by in NFL General on January 1st, 2010 | Comment »

It’s Week 17 in the NFL and playoff spots are on the line.  Hopefully you took down Florida and Ohio State today in the Bowl games today.  Those were both easy wins in the big bowl games.  Sorry Brandon’s picks this Bowl season have been dismal.  He had a good season overall, but I found some of those calls on some Bowl games rather suspect.  There’s a lot of meaningless games to gauge, but here is what I like tomorrow.

1.) Bears -3 over LIONS — Hopefully the Bears can continue what they started last week.  Even though this game is meaningless, I think the Bears have more heart than the Lions and want to end the season with a big win.

2.) Steelers -3 over DOLPHINS — This is a potential playoff game for the Steelers and when they have to rise to the occasion, they usually do.  Like the win over the Packers.

3.) Titans -4.5 over SEAHAWKS — The Seahawks have been terrible and the Titans should run over them. However, the Titans D has been a concern lately and I don’t love them on the road, but I think they win this one.  A 3-4 point win won’t surprise me though, but I don’t see this game playing out any other way than a domination by the Titans.

4.) PANTHERS -7 over Saints — Saints will be resting players. Brees will not see any action as he’s the #3 QB today. Mark Brunell will start for the Saints. Look for the Panthers to roll over the Saints B Team.


5.) CHARGERS -3.5 over Redskins — Hard to gauge what kind of effort you’ll get from the Chargers since they have the 2nd seed locked up, but at home against the Redskins looks like a good play if Rivers plays until the 4th quarter.  Unfortunately, Billy Volek will get some playing time, so you might want to stay away from this game.  This is basically like betting on a preseason game.

6.) Giants +9 over VIKINGS — This could be a good spot to take some points since I think you see the Giants want to redeem themselves after last week’s embarrassment.  The Vikings lost 3 of their last 4, but all 3 losses came on the road.  When the Vikings play in the dome, they’re a completely different team so a 34-24 outcome is possible, but the Vikings are clearly in a decline right now.
