We have reached the final weekend of the National Football League. Week 17 has arrived, and there are several games that could throw around the seedings and teams that are into the postseason. It should be a fun week, with all 32 teams playing on Sunday. After this week – the postseason will begin in the National Football League. Let’s look at our bets for the regular season finale in the National Football:
Minnesota Vikings -12 over Chicago Bears
The Minnesota Vikings should be able to name the score over the Chicago Bears. Sure, the Bears are coming off a win, but in the end, Chicago is still a 5 win team. The Vikings need this win to keep the #2 seed in the NFC, and that means home game in the second round, and if the Eagles lose – a home game in the NFC title game. The Vikings quarterback Case Keenum has been absolutely outstanding with 21 touchdowns and 7 interceptions thrown. Look for the Minnesota offense to have their way against the Bears defense in this game, and come away with a blowout home win.
New England Patriots -16 over New York Jets
This should not even be close. Tom Brady and the New England Patriots are at home, and ready to keep their top seed in the AFC. The Patriots would have a first round bye, and then host a game before possibly hosting the AFC title game. The Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski is looking to get over 1,100 yards receiving and he has 8 touchdowns on the season. He seems to be in line for a great game against the hurting Jets that are heading home for the season following this game. The Patriots whip the Jets in Foxboro.
Philadelphia Eagles -3 over Dallas Cowboys
Do not be surprised if the Dallas Cowboys come into this game very unmotivated. The Cowboys have been eliminated from postseason play, and Philadelphia, despite who they play are still going to be spirited and want to grab their 14th win of the season. Nick Foles has thrown 5 touchdowns and 1 interception since becoming the starter. Look for a solid outing from the quarterback in the Eagles win. Take Philadelphia at home over the Dallas Cowboys in NFL Week 17.
Atlanta Falcons -4 over Carolina Panthers
This is the biggest game on the NFL slate for Week 17. This game has a ton of meaning to it. The Atlanta Falcons are at home and need a win to get into the postseason. Keep in mind – this is the NFC Champions we are talking about. Matt Ryan and Julio Jones do NOT want to be left out. On the other side – Carolina is a rival and would love to keep the Falcons out. Also, if the Panthers win, they could take down the NFC South title. Cam Newton should get a full game under his belt here. In a great game- the team that must win will win. Take the Atlanta Falcons -4 over the Carolina Panthers on Sunday.
Tennessee Titans -3 over Jacksonville Jaguars
The Jacksonville Jaguars are already in the postseason, and lost an edge last week in the loss to Philadelphia. The Jaguars are going to be playing in the wildcard weekend anyways, not sure there is much motivation there for them. The Tennessee Titans if they want any chance at the postseason must win this game. Look for a hungry Titans team to come away with the win in this game on Sunday as they look to get into the postseason.
San Francisco 49ers +1 over Los Angeles Rams
The Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay has already said that his offensive starters are likely going to sit this game. That means no Jared Goff, no Todd Gurley, and that means trouble for the Rams. They are facing a San Francisco team that has been red hot with four straight wins. Defensively, if the Rams sit starters, they could be in huge trouble in this game. The Rams will still be at home in the wildcard round of the postseason. Look for the 49ers to take down the Rams in this game, and finish with 6 wins on the season.
Seattle Seahawks -9 over Arizona Cardinals
While there is some pretty good narrative about Bruce Arians final game as head coach and Larry Fitzgerald likely his finale in the league – the Cardinals are out manned and outclassed. Especially if the Seahawks find out that the Atlanta Falcons lose. If the Falcons win, the Seahawks could lay off the gas, as they will be eliminated. But the Seahawks have the better roster and need a win. Take Seattle at home in Week 17.
Best of luck with all your National Football League betting. It’s been a great season of football, and we expect more awesome football action as the regular season comes to a close and the postseason begins. There is a look at our bets from the regular season finale in the National Football League. Enjoy and have a great 2018!
