NFL Week 17 Picks and Betting Odds

New, comment

The 2012 NFL season comes to a close this week so here are my final can't-miss picks for Week 17. I've saved the best for last.

Ronald Martinez

Buccaneers (6-9) @ Falcons (13-2)

Favorite: n/a

The Falcons probably won't be playing starters so the Bucs probably win this one.

Jets (6-9) @ Bills (5-10)

Favorite: Bills by 3.5

The Jets organization is just a complete circus. I'll stick with the Bills.

Ravens (10-5) @ Bengals (9-6)

Favorite: Bengals by 1

Should be a close game but I expect the Ravens to win.

Browns (5-10) @ Steelers (7-8)

Favorite: n/a

These teams are nearly playing for pride. The Steelers get their first win a long time.

Bears (9-6) @ Lions (4-11)

Favorite: Bears by 3

Da Bears!

Jaguars (2-11) @ Titans (5-10)

Favorite: Titans by 4

The Jaguars are bad. That's what you need to know.

Eagles (4-11) @ Giants (8-7)

Favorite: Giants by 7.5

Must-game for the Giants, which is what they'll do.

Panthers (6-9) @ Saints (7-8)

Favorite: Saints by 5

The Saints will end Carolina's mini winning streak.

Texans (12-3) @ Colts (10-5)

Favorite: Texans by 6.5

I'm gonna pick the Colts for the upset here.

Packers (11-4) @ Vikings (9-6)

Favorite: Packers by 3.5

Another upset pick here. I'm going with the Vikings.

Rams (7-7-1) @ Seahawks (10-5)

Favorite: Seahawks by 10.5

This game is in Seattle. No way they lose.

Dolphins (7-8) @ Patriots (11-4)

Favorite: Patriots by 10

New England should handle the Dolphins easily.

Chiefs (2-13) @ Broncos (12-3)

Favorite: Broncos by 16

Chiefs over Broncos? I don't freakin' think so.

Raiders (4-11) @ Chargers (6-9)

Favorite: n/a

The Chargers give Norv Turner won final win before he's fired.

Cardinals (5-10) @ 49ers (10-4-1)

Favorite: 49ers by 16.5

The Cardinals have no chance in hell.

Cowboys (8-7) @ Redskins (9-6)

Favorite: Redskins by 3

This is a key game in the NFC playoff race. Redskins definitely win.
