NFL Week 17 Games

New York Jets @ Cleveland Browns

Dec. 28, 8:20 p.m. ET (TNF)

  • Jets -1 (-110) @ Browns +1 (-110)

The Jets and Browns face off in a battle of two playoff hopefuls on Thursday Night Football.

Both Aaron Rodgers and Deshaun Watson are looking to bounce back from disappointing seasons. The Jets have the better roster from top to bottom, especially on defense, where they’re led by stars like cornerback Sauce Gardner.

The Jets opening as one-point road favorites says a lot here, as oddsmakers project them to be the better team. I’ll take New York -1.

Detroit Lions @ Dallas Cowboys

Dec. 30, 8:15 p.m. ET (Saturday)

  • Lions +3 (-110) @ Cowboys -3 (-110)

The Lions take on the Cowboys in a projected shootout on Saturday night in a game that could have major playoff implications.

Both of these teams can ascend to Super Bowl contenders this year, but I’m backing the Lions +3 in this spot. This is a team with an elite offensive line that just added three playmakers on offense in Jahmyr Gibbs, Sam LaPorta, and Jameson Williams, the latter of which barely played in 2022.

Look for this game to come down to the wire, which is why taking the underdog Lions feels more comfortable.

Los Angeles Rams @ New York Giants

Dec. 31, 1 p.m. ET

  • Rams +3 (-110) @ Giants -3 (-110)

I’m projecting the Rams to be a bit better than expected this year, as quarterback Matthew Stafford is likely to have a better year after an injury-plagued 2022 season.

While the Giants added Darren Waller, it’s clear that this team overachieved last season. It’s hard to see them making the playoffs once again.

In a game between two teams that will likely hover around .500, I’ll roll with the Rams plus the points in our NFL bet of the day.

Arizona Cardinals @ Philadelphia Eagles

Dec. 31, 1 p.m. ET

  • Cardinals +11 (-110) @ Eagles -11 (-110)

The Eagles remain the best team on paper following an impressive offseason, while the Cardinals are at risk of bottoming out, especially late in the year in Week 17.

Arizona could position itself to take generational quarterback prospect Caleb Williams in the 2024 NFL Draft.

In other words, the Cardinals could lock up first overall with a loss against the best team in football here. Give me the Eagles -11.

New England Patriots @ Buffalo Bills

Dec. 31, 1 p.m. ET

  • Patriots +5.5 (-110) @ Bills -5.5 (-110)

The Patriots may be one of the most underrated teams in the NFL right now. They improved their offense dramatically with JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mike Gesicki along with new play-caller Bill O’Brien.

While the Bills remain Super Bowl contenders, I like the Patriots to keep this one close behind their running game, led by stud back Rhamondre Stevenson.

I’ll take New England +5.5 here.

New Orleans Saints @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Dec. 31, 1 p.m. ET

  • Saints -1.5 (-110) @ Buccaneers +1.5 (-110)

The Saints are in a good position to make the playoffs this year. Not only did they improve at quarterback with Derek Carr, but they’re in the weakest division in football and have an extremely soft schedule.

The Bucs are another team that could be putting themselves in position to take Caleb Williams. They’re projected to have one of the worst records in football, so Week 17 could be a game where they’re just playing out the year.

That makes Saints -1.5 look like an appealing play, especially considering the low number.

Miami Dolphins @ Baltimore Ravens

Dec. 31, 1 p.m. ET

  • Dolphins +1 (-115) @ Ravens -1 (-105)

The Dolphins and Ravens clash in a matchup of what could be two of the most explosive offenses in the NFL.

Last year, these two teams had an unforgettable game, where Miami came from behind for an epic 42-38 victory.

We could see more fireworks with the game going down to the wire once again. While the Ravens’ offense should be better under new offensive coordinator Todd Monken, the same can be said about Miami’s defense with Vic Fangio in the fold.

I’ll take the Dolphins +1.

Las Vegas Raiders @ Indianapolis Colts

Dec. 31, 1 p.m. ET

  • Raiders -2 (-110) @ Colts +2 (-110)

The Colts are one of my surprise team picks due to an elite running game led by Anthony Richardson and Jonathan Taylor and orchestrated by new coach Shane Steichen.

On the other side, the Raiders look like they could be one of the worst teams in the NFL, especially if Jimmy Garoppolo has trouble staying healthy.

The fact that we’re getting Indy as home dogs here makes this a terrific play.

San Francisco 49ers @ Washington Commanders

Dec. 31, 1 p.m. ET

  • 49ers -3.5 (-110) @ Commanders +3.5 (-110)

This one looks like a complete mismatch, with the Super Bowl-contending 49ers taking on the Sam Howell-led Commanders.

While Howell has a bit of upside, he’s going to have a tough time against one of the best defenses in the NFL.

Washington is likely to be just playing out the year at this stage of the season, while San Francisco could be fighting for a playoff spot or better seeding in the postseason. That makes the 49ers -3.5 look like a strong play.

Carolina Panthers @ Jacksonville Jaguars

Dec. 31, 1 p.m. ET

  • Panthers +5 (-110) @ Jaguars -5 (-110)

The Panthers are being overlooked right now. This is a team with a potential franchise quarterback in Bryce Young along with an improving defense led by Jaycee Horn and Brian Burns.

The Jaguars are a dark horse Super Bowl contender with Trevor Lawrence continuing to improve, but we could see a close game in this inter-conference matchup vs an unfamiliar opponent.

There’s also a chance that the Jags won’t have much to play for here, as they could have the AFC South already locked up. That makes Panthers +5 look appealing.

Atlanta Falcons @ Chicago Bears

Dec. 31, 1 p.m. ET

  • Falcons +2 (-110) @ Bears -2 (-110)

Here we have a matchup between two elite running games, with the Falcons led by rookie Bijan Robinson and the Bears with Justin Fields and their running back committee.

I give the edge to Chicago due to its quarterback advantage with Fields over Desmond Ridder, even with the Falcons’ superior skills group with Drake London and Kyle Pitts.

Look for the Bears to get it done as short favorites here.

Tennessee Titans @ Houston Texans

Dec. 31, 1 p.m. ET

  • Titans -1 (-110) @ Texans +1 (-110)

The Titans are short road favorites against the division-rival Texans, but I wouldn’t count Houston out in this one.

This team should be that classic scrappy underdog under DeMeco Ryans, who I have high hopes for after a terrific tenure as 49ers’ defensive coordinator.

Texans’ rookie quarterback C.J. Stroud has a lot of potential as a passer. At this late stage in the year, we’re likely to see a better version of Stroud compared to the early parts of the season.

That makes me like Houston as home underdogs here.

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Seattle Seahawks

Dec. 31, 4:05 p.m. ET

  • Steelers +2.5 (-105) @ Seahawks -2.5 (-115)

The Steelers are likely to have a strong running game behind an improved offensive line. Running backs Najee Harris and Jaylen Warren could cause problems for a Seahawks’ defense that struggles in rush defense.

However, Seattle has a major advantage at quarterback with Geno Smith over Kenny Pickett. Add in the fact that the Seahawks are home and you have to like them on the spread here.

Seattle is one of my favorite dark horse Super Bowl contenders, so I can’t pass them up in this spot.

Los Angeles Chargers @ Denver Broncos

Dec. 31, 4:25 p.m. ET

  • Chargers +1 (-110) @ Broncos -1 (-110)

It’s always tough to win in Denver, especially in an AFC West divisional game. That’s why I like the Broncos to get it done in their home tilt with the Chargers in Week 17.

Look for a much better year in Denver with Sean Payton running the show. While it may be tough to make the playoffs in such a stacked AFC, this will still be a much-improved team.

Even though the Chargers are the superior side, I’ll take the Broncos to get a big home win against their division rivals.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Kansas City Chiefs

Dec. 31, 4:25 p.m. ET

  • Bengals +3 (-105) @ Chiefs -3 (-115)

The two best teams in the AFC (and potentially the NFL) go at it in an epic showdown that could decide which side has a first-round bye.

The Bengals have played the Chiefs tough in recent matchups, which makes me like them plus the points here, especially since we get a full field goal.

Look for Joe Burrow and company to keep it close in this highly anticipated matchup.

Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings

Dec. 31, 8:20 p.m. ET (SNF)

  • Packers +2.5 (-110) @ Vikings -2.5 (-110)

Sunday Night Football in Week 17 features an NFC North battle between Jordan Love and the Packers against an improved Vikings defense coached by Brian Flores.

It’s hard to know what we’ll get from Love in his first year as starting quarterback, giving the edge to Minnesota in this one.

Look for the Vikings’ offense to be too much for Green Bay to keep up with. I’ll take Minnesota -2.5 here.
