NFL Week 17 Betting Pick and Preview for Every Game
Here’s our NFL Week 17 Betting Preview for each and every game.
NFL Week 17 Betting: Cowboys at Titans
NFL Week 17 Betting preview and pick for Cowboys at Titans
The Cowboys are -9.5 road spread favorites for their week 17 matchup vs the Titans.
Dallas is just one of two teams to hand the Eagles a loss this season as the Cowboys defeated Philly 40-34 on December 24.
Of course, the Eagles were not the same without Jalen Hurts, who was replaced by Gardner Minshew, as Hurts is recovering from a shoulder injury.
At 11-4, Dallas is definitely one of the best teams this year.
The Titans, +9 underdogs, are also without their starting quarterback, Ryan Tannehill.
And it shows, as facing the Texans seem a tough task for second-string Malik Willis, and Tennessee got defeated by Houston 19-14, in Nissan Stadium.
This is really a team that has been suffering for a while now, with abysmal results in the past month.
Cowboys at Titans NFL Week 17 Betting Pick: Dallas -9

NFL Week 17 Betting: Cardinals at Falcons
NFL Week 17 Betting preview and pick for Cardinals at Falcons.
The Cardinals’ season is done at 4-11, especially after losing to the Bucs 19-16 on Sunday.
This is a team that is currently seating in the last spot of the NFC West, below the Rams.
Arizona is +3.5 underdogs for their visit to Atlanta to face -3.5 favorites the Falcons.
I believe this is a fair spread for this game as at 5-10 the Falcons are not really a better team than Arizona.
Atlanta got handed a 17-9 loss by the Ravens on December 24.
And now that they are the home team, they have a slight advantage to try and defeat a Cardinals team that is set for a rebuild, at least on the coaching side.
Cardinals at Falcons NFL Week 17 Betting Pick: Atlanta -3.5
NFL Week 17 Betting: Bears at Lions
NFL Week 17 Betting preview and pick for Bears and Lions.
The Bears are +5.5 underdogs when they visit Detroit to play -5.5 favorites the Lions.
Chicago is currently 3-12 on the season after getting defeated 35-13 by the Bills on December 24.
This is another team that is likely to go into a rebuilding process around Justin Fields for the next season.
They are likely one of the favorites to take the number one pick in the upcoming NFL Draft 2023. And this could be an effective trading card for multiple 1st-round selections.
The Lions are 7-8 and are also among the best 15 teams in the league right now.
Detroit was on a winning streak that ended on December 24 when they got handed a 37-23 loss by the Carolina Panthers.
That being said, we believe this game against Chicago is perfect for the Lions to return to their winning ways.
Bears at Lions NFL Week 17 Betting Pick: Detroit -5.5
NFL Week 17 Betting: Jaguars at Texans
NFL Week 17 Betting: The Jaguars are -4 visiting favorites vs the +4 home underdogs Houston.
The Jaguars are on a 3-game winning streak and they are now headed to Houston to play the Texans.
Jacksonville, with a 7-8 record on the year, is currently the 10th-best team in the league.
It seems like this is the breakout year for Trevor Lawrence, who is finally looking like the star quarterback he was at LSU.
The Texans have managed to win only 2 games for a 2-12-1 record on the year.
Needless to say, this is one of the teams competing with the Bears for the first pick at the 2023 NFL Draft.
They are now playing underdogs at their own field vs Jacksonville, and that is no good for the record of any respectable NFL franchise.
That being said, they acquired one of their two victories on December 24 after defeating the Titans 19-14.
Despite this, they are still the worst of the two teams.
Jaguars at Texans NFL Week 17 Betting Pick: Jacksonville -4
NFL Week 17 Betting: Broncos at Chiefs
NFL Week 17 Betting: The 12-3 Chiefs are huge -14 home favorites to play the 4-11 and +14 underdogs the Broncos.
The Broncos got completely smashed by the Rams on Sunday, falling 51-14 in SoFi Stadium.
We all know that Denver is currently the worst team in the NFL as they seem to have completely lost any notion of what winning means.
They paid Russell Wilson a superstar quarterback salary, but right now it seems like armed robbery.
Indeed, they need to get Wilson a better team, or get the team a better quarterback, but the experience didn’t work this current season.
Kansas City Chiefs
Patrick Mahomes is definitely one of the best quarterbacks in the league, no question.
And right now, we are not sure who’s winning MVP, Mahomes, or Jalen Hurts, but it should be close.
The Chiefs acquired their 12th victory of the season on December 24 after defeating the Seahawks 24-10.
Now they are headed to what it seems a nice victory on January 1st to start the year with the right foot.
We believe Denver will suffer and it will be not even close.
Broncos at Chiefs NFL Week 17 Betting Pick: Kansas City -14
NFL Week 17 Betting: Dolphins at Patriots
Here is our NFL Week 17 Betting pick and preview for Dolphins at Patriots.
The Dolphins, 8-7 on the season and -1 road favorites for this game, were pictured as one of the Super Bowl contender favorites when the season started.
But the team seem to be imploding right in front of our eyes.
And their starting quarterback, now nicknamed “Tua TurnTheBallOvah” is faced with a more than challenging task in trying to right the ship.
They lost on Sunday 20-26 to the Packers in Miami, and a victory over a divisional rival is exactly what they need to recover some of their lost confidence.
New England Patriots
The Patriots, 7-8 on the year, have lost 2 in a row and are +1 home underdogs when they play the Fins in Gillette Stadium.
It definitely has been a challenging season for quarterback Mac Jones, but seems to be getting more comfortable with his job every day.
That being said, between him and Tua, the latter is the better quarterback, and the Dolphins are also the best of the two teams.
Dolphins at Patriots NFL Week 17 Betting Pick: Miami -1
NFL Week 17 Betting: Saints at Eagles
The Saints are +6.5 underdogs for their visit to Philly to play the -6.5 favorites the Eagles.
New Orleans Saints
The Saints have won two in a row, and that means that the team is doing everything on their hands to deliver as much as possible for Dennis Allen.
They are currently 6-9, and now they are set for a road trip to Philly that probably nobody in the NOLA roster is very enthusiastic about.
Needless to say, the first day of 2023 will be one of the most challenging ones of the full year for the Saints.
The Eagles are hurt as they suffered their second loss of the season on December 24, falling 40-34 to the Cowboys.
Despite this, they were the better team of the two, even without Jalen Hurts, who is currently recovering from a shoulder injury.
This means that the team is eager to get back to their winning ways, and New Orleans definitely seems like a team that won’t present too much of a challenge.
Saints at Eagles NFL Week 17 Betting Pick: Philly -6.5
NFL Week 17 Betting: Panthers at Buccaneers
Now it’s time for our NFL Week 17 Betting preview for the game between Carolina and Tampa Bay.
The Panthers are 6-9 on the season and have won 2 of their last 3, with their latest victory coming on December 24 by 37-23 over the Lions.
Now Sam Darnold is ready for a visit to Tampa Bay to face walking legend Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tom Brady is a good quarterback, but he is certainly not the best anymore. There are young guys like Josh Allen, Patrick Mahomes, Joe Burrow, and particularly Jalen Hurts, who are taking over the league.
Still, Brady is likely a better quarterback than Sam Darnold, and he has the option to help his team go 8-8 with a victory over Carolina at home.
Panthers at Buccaneers NFL Week 17 Betting Pick: Tampa Bay -3
NFL Week 17 Betting: Browns at Commanders
Here is our NFL Week 17 Betting preview for the game between Browns and Commanders.
Washington are -2.5 favorites at home versus the +2.5 visiting Browns
The Browns are lucky about the forgettable season Russell Wilson is having in Denver as that prevents people from focusing on how disappointing Deshaun Watson’s return has been.
Cleveland, ranked 26 overall in the league heading to week 17, lost their last game 17-10 to the Saints.
Now they are set to play a 7-7-1 Commanders team that won four straight before losing two in a row to the Giants and the 49ers respectively.
This is a team that has been doing not so bad lately, and they still have the chance to make it to the postseason.
But for them to aspire to something more than merely make it there, they should have a switch a quarterback. This will allow the team to find a new leader and forget about the Wentz fiasco.
Browns at Commanders NFL Week 17 Betting Pick: Washington -2.5
NFL Week 17 Betting: 49ers at Raiders
Here is our NFL Week 17 Betting preview for the game between the 49ers and the Raiders.
San Francisco are -6 road favorites when they visit Las Vegas to face the +6 home underdogs the Raiders.
San Francisco 49ers
With Brock Purdy, the 49ers definitely seem like a contender, no question, and Kyle Shanahan is the happiest coach in the NFL.
The Niners are now 11-4 with their latest victim being Washington, destroying them 37-20 on December 24.
This is a playoff-ready team that is just playing its remaining games with its full focus on what’s coming.
Las Vegas Raiders
The Raiders have lost 3 of its last 5, and their next test is definitely not an easy one.
Las Vegas, 6-9 on the year, is coming from a close 13-10 defeat to the Steelers on December 24.
Now, the big question lingering about this team is the future of Derek Carr.
Will the Raiders continue to trust him as their number one, or are they on their quest to find his replacement during the offseason?
49ers at Raiders NFL Week 17 Betting Pick: San Francisco -6
NFL Week 17 Betting: Jets at Seahawks
Next in this NFL Week 17 Betting preview, let’s talk about Jets at Seahawks.
Seattle are -1 home favorite vs the +1 visiting New York.
New York Jets
The Jets are currently rolling on a 4-game losing streak. And what is worse than this for this team is truly not knowing anything about the future of the starting quarterback.
Zach Wilson is pretty much done as he’s not likely to be the starter next year. And that’s likely to be the focus of the team during the offseason.
The last defeat for NY came on December 22, with the Jaguars handing them a 19-3 loss. And Wilson getting replaced by Chris Streveler (no coming back from that one).
The Seahawks visited Kansas City in week 16 and left Arrowhead Stadium with a 24-10 defeat.
Now Seattle are 7-8 for the season, and set to play another mid-table team like themselves in the Jets.
This is going to be an interesting clash, with Geno Smith trying to return to his winning ways.
Jets at Seahawks NFL Week 17 Betting Pick: Seattle -1
NFL Week 17 Betting: Vikings at Packers
Let’s continue with this NFL Week 17 Betting preview by talking about -3 home favorites Green Bay and +3 underdog visitors Minnesota.
The 12-3 Vikings are on a roll as they have won 4 of their previous 5, and Kirk Cousins is looking his best self.
Minnesota is ranked the 8th best team in the league, and they wish to continue winning when they visit Green Bay.
Green Bay Packers
The 7-8 Packers have won 3 of their previous 4 with a surprise, week 16, 26-20 victory over the Dolphins.
And, exactly everything that was necessary for this team to continue to have postseason hopes happened on week 16.
Needless to say, Green Bay is having a late-season revival. And seems ready for this clash versus a very similar team in terms of talent and what their quarterbacks can do.
Vikings at Packers NFL Week 17 Betting Pick: Green Bay -3
NFL Week 17 Betting: Steelers at Ravens
Here is our NFL Week 17 Betting preview for the Steelers at Ravens game.
The Ravens are -3 home favorites to get the victory in Baltimore over the Steelers.
These two played each other on December 11, with the Ravens taking a close 16-14 victory.
Pittsburgh’s defense sucked for the first part of the season, but it has improved a lot since. With the team winning 4 of its last five games for a current 7-8 record for the year.
Now they are set to start their 2023 football calendar with a visit to Baltimore as +3 underdogs.
The Ravens won 3 of their last 4, and are currently 10-5 for the season.
Tyler Huntley has not been a bad replacement for Lamar Jackson, and this team is expected to have a good run in the playoffs.
Steelers at Ravens NFL Week 17 Betting Pick: Baltimore -3
NFL Week 17 Betting: Bills at Bengals
Last but not least, we have our NFL Week 17 Betting preview and pick for Bills at Bengals.
This is likely to be the best game of game 17, with the 12-3 Bills, ranked fourth place overall, take on the 11-4 Bengals, ranked second overall in the league.
The Bills did get the victory over the Bears, but it’s true that Josh Allen still doesn’t seem to be playing at 100% of his capacity.
And this is probably a big concern at this stage of the season as there is really zero room for error in a very loaded AFC conference.
Despite this, Buffalo are -1 slight favorites to take the victory on the road.
The Bengals managed to improve to 11-4 on the season on December 24 thanks to a victory over the Patriots.
Cincinnati ruled the game for the first two quarters, but the team was just not the same after halftime.
The Bengals were ahead by 22 points before the half. But during the third and fourth, they allowed New England to take over and closing the game with a four-point difference.
They know they can’t make those same mistakes, and this is likely the reason why they are +1 home underdogs for this particular game.
Bills at Bengals NFL Week 17 Betting Pick: Buffalo -1
