NFL Week 17 Picks and Predictions

It’s the last week of the NFL regular season, but I can’t wait to watch some of the games. The entire season will be on the line this week for several teams and it should be an exciting Sunday. There is no question that the most exciting game of the week is going to be the Rams and Seahawks, as whoever wins the game will win the NFC West division. The race in the AFC South should also be fun to watch. The Jaguars need to beat the Texans this week and have the Colts lose against the Titans in order for the Jaguars to earn a spot in the playoffs this season.

NFL Week 17 Best Bets

St. Louis Rams –2.5 vs. Seattle Seahawks +2.5

The Rams travel to Qwest on Sunday to take on the Seahawks in what should be the best game of the week. Whichever team wins the game will win the NFC West division while the losing team will be eliminated. St. Louis is coming into the game on a 1-game winning streak after taking care of business against the 49’ers last week. Seattle on the other hand hasn’t been performing well at all lately and come into this game on a 3-game losing streak. Both teams have offensive struggles, but that shouldn’t matter as much this week since both teams also don’t have great defences. The advantage on defence definitely goes to the Rams though, as the Seahawks are almost ranked worst in every defensive category. Bradford and Jackson should be able to tear-up the Seahawks defence and if the Rams defence can make a couple key stops throughout the game, I think they’ll cover. One thing that worries me a little is the fact that the Rams are only 2-5 on the road and playing in Qwest is going to be insane on Sunday.

New York Giants –4 vs. Washington Redskins +4

I’m taking the Giants in this game because they still have something to play for while the Redskins seem to have packed it up a long time ago. Nothing is going right in Washington and I can’t see them beating the Giants in this spot. New York looked like they’d easily make the playoffs earlier in the season, but they’ve fallen apart the past couple weeks. New York should be able to shred the Redskins defence the entire game and put them away early. Nicks will most likely not play in the game, but I don’t think it’s going to make a huge difference, as the Redskins have the 2nd worst passing defence in the NFL this season.
