Week 17 is upon us starting tonight with the Cleveland Browns (-7.5) taking on the New York Jets (+7.5).

This week, your New Orleans Saints (+2.5) will be taking on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-2.5) in a crucial NFC South battle. If the Saints win, they stay alive in the South. If not, they will likely be packing their bags early once again.

Across the league, there are a couple of intriguing matchups this week with possible playoff implications as far as seeding. In the NFC the Detroit Lions (+5.5) will be taking on the Dallas Cowboys (-5.5). Two teams that have similar success this year and have high-octane offenses. In the AFC, the Baltimore Ravens (-3) with be seeing the Miami Dolphins (+3) in a very anticipated matchup. An explosive Miami offense versus an opportunistic Ravens secondary should give us a great treat on New Years eve.

Should be a fun week of football. Check out odds for this week’s games courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.
