NFL Week 17 is finally here! Earlier in the week, we discussed which NFL Week 17 picks against the spread to exploit from the opening betting lines. However, in this article, I will identify my favorite NFL Week 17 picks now that the lines have moved.
So, let’s dive into the games and see which NFL picks have been under-valued by the NFL sportsbooks.
NFL Expert Picks Week 17
Kansas City Chiefs at Cincinnati Bengals
NFL Week 17 Pick: Chiefs -5 (-110)
This is a massive number here for the Chiefs, who are looking to build on this huge case of momentum towards the end of the regular season. The public will undoubtedly jump all over the Bengals in this matchup, considering the offensive output they had last week against the Baltimore Ravens.
Despite the Chiefs having Clyde Edwards-Helaire listed as doubtful with a shoulder injury, they do have Darrel Williams and Derrick Gore who are fully capable of handling the workload against the Bengals. We should see plenty of points, and I do love that aspect, but the Chiefs winning by a touchdown is what I love the most.
Philadelphia Eagles (-3) at Washington Football Team
NFL Week 17 Pick: Eagles -3 (-110)
After speaking with my co-host on the Taking Sides podcast, I believe that the Eagles are the correct side to go with. After all, Washington RB Antonio Gibson isn’t looking like he’ll be available for this game, and we saw how that worked out for them on Sunday night against the Dallas Cowboys. Granted, the Cowboys won that game by a million points, but we can see how much the WFT needs Gibson.
The Eagles have found something here running the football, no matter whether it’s Miles Sanders or not. Sanders won’t be playing this week, but Philly does still have a nice two-headed machine in Boston Scott and Kenneth Gainwell.
Arizona Cardinals at Dallas Cowboys
NFL Week 17 Pick: Cowboys -6 (-110)
It’s impossible to look at these teams over the last few weeks and not think the Cowboys are going to crush the Cardinals. Of course, this is how we can sometimes get ourselves into trouble betting these NFL games – assuming an easy victory – but it’s clear as day.
Arizona can’t get out of its own way, and the injury to WR DeAndre Hopkins is proving to be more noticeable than originally thought. Dallas looked great on Sunday night, boatracing Washington to the tune of a 56-14 beatdown. The one matchup I’m excited to see is the Cowboys’ defense going up against the speedy QB Kyler Murray and the Cardinals’ offense. Obviously, the matchup is a bit watered down without Hopkins, but it should still be exciting nevertheless. Cowboys get the W by more than a touchdown.
