Damn… It’s really the last regular season game… SMH… The 2016 N@CT NFL pick record sitting at 98-87 ( 7-8 last week )… Trust me this week. I come through when its clutch time. Don’t be afraid to rock with the underdogs this week… Most teams that are already in the playoffs will sit starters at some point. This week is all about the underdogs…
N@CT NFL Week 17 picks….
* DENOTES HOME TEAM
TITANS* (-3½) Vs TEXANS
Mariota was injured last week and the Titans backup QB (Matt Cassel) is horrible. The Texans are in the playoffs and might rest their starting QB but their backup is semi decent.
BILLS (-3½) Vs JETS*
Stay away from these teams, but the OVER is probably a good look.
BENGALS* (-1½) Vs RAVENS
The most tenacious WR to ever lace up cleats is retiring this after this game. The Ravens will win this game for the homey Steve Smith Sr.
REDSKINS* (-7½) Vs GIANTS
The Redskins need to win this game to get into the playoffs and the Giants will be playing for GP. The Giants will keep this game interesting for the culture.
PACKERS (-3½) Vs LIONS*
Dak Prescott and the Cowboys gave that Lions secondary some serious work last week. A-Rod is going to go bonkers against the Lions this week. Packers by 14.
COLTS* (-4½) Vs JAGUARS
Don’t even waste your money… This game can go either way. AVOID
EAGLES* (-3½) Vs COWBOYS
The Cowboys are in the playoffs and have nothing to play for but stats. The Eagles will win by 10+.
VIKINGS* (-5½) Vs BEARS
BUCCANEERS* (-5½) Vs PANTHERS
The Bucs almost got washed by the Panthers with their backup QB (Derek Anderson) in the previous match up. Cam will close this season out with a win.
STEELERS* (-6½) Vs BROWNS
Yes. I’m taking Bobby Griffin and the Browns. The Steelers are in the playoffs and I doubt any starters will be getting dressed. That spread might be too much for the Steelers backups.
FALCONS* (-6½) Vs SAINTS
The Falcons are in the playoffs but they need this win to get the top seed. I have a funny feeling this will be the game of the week. Drew Brees will keep this game close.
PATRIOTS (-9½) Vs DOLPHINS*
Maaaannnn. Belichick loves to play mind games, but I don’t see Brady playing 4 straight quarters. I don’t care what anyone says.
CARDINALS (-6½) Vs RAMS*
No debate here
CHIEFS (-5½) Vs CHARGERS*
Flip a coin. The Chiefs are in the playoffs and don’t need to run with starters… Usually an easy call, but the Chargers lose to the Browns last week. SMH
SEAHAWKS (-9½) Vs 49ERS*
The Seahawks have nothing to play for this week. The Niners will cover at home. Seahawks by 7.
BRONCOS* (-1½) Vs RAIDERS
The Raiders can’t catch a break. They were definitely headed to the AFC championship game before the injury to Derek Carr…
