NFL Picks Against the Spread: Week 17

Which bets do you like the most?

NFL: Philadelphia Eagles at Arizona Cardinals Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

Before the seventeenth Sunday of the 2023 NFL regular season kicks off, let’s have some fun by taking a look at the lines for the Week 16 games.

You can CLICK HERE for straight up NFL picks without regard to the spread. You can find all of the NFL betting lines via DraftKings SportsBook.

My overall record so far is 130-102-8. The BGN community is 128-104-8. I’ve pulled back in the lead.

Here are suggestions when trying to beat the odds.

NFL WEEK 17 GAMES

ARIZONA CARDINALS at PHILADELPHIA EAGLES (-13): The Eagles just haven’t been a team that wins comfortably. So, counting on them to do it here feels foolish ... but, screw it, I’m not betting on Jonathan Gannon. PICK: Eagles -13

MIAMI DOLPHINS at BALTIMORE RAVENS (-3): Just feels fitting that right after everyone crowns Lamar Jackson as MVP and the Ravens as the top team that the Dolphins steal a win. PICK: Dolphins +3

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS (-14) at WASHINGTON COMMANDERS: I’d feel better if Jacoby Brissett was starting here since the Commanders have looked more competent with him. Unfortunately that won’t be the case. Still, Washington might be able to keep this closer than people expect. The 49ers are coming off short rest, they’re banged up, and they might have been a bit rattled by Monday’s loss. San Fran wins but doesn’t cover. PICK: Commanders +14

NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS at BUFFALO BILLS (-14.5): The Pats have been playing competitive football and they beat the Bills earlier this season. So, Buffalo will naturally win this in a blowout. PICK: Bills -14.5

PITTSBURGH STEELERS at SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (-4.5): Betting against Mike Tomlin as an underdog always makes me uneasy. But it is Mason Rudolph on the road we’re talking about here. I’ll take the Steelers to cover in a Seahawks win. PICK: Steelers +4.5
