Week 17 will end with a much clearer NFL playoff picture. After last week, there were 24 teams still in contention for the postseason. This weekend will feature eight matchups between teams with playoff aspirations and the anticipated matchup between the Buffalo Bills and Cincinnati Bengals on Monday night. This also makes for some great NFL parlay opportunities this week.
New York Giants -5.5 over Indianapolis Colts (-110)
The Indianapolis Colts’ offense continued to look terrible last week against the Chargers. Even with Nick Foles at quarterback, they only scored three points in a poor offensive showing. This week they will face a New York Giants team looking to make that final push for a Wild Card berth.
The Colts have nothing left to play for and look to move closer to ending a disappointing season. Covering the 5.5 points in this matchup shouldn’t be a problem for New York at home.
Cleveland Browns vs. Washington Commanders Under 40 Points (-105)
Cleveland has been inconsistent all season, and everything has stayed the same since Deshaun Watson returned to the lineup. The Browns are averaging 15 points per game with him as the starter and 11 points in their last three contests.
Washington hasn’t performed much better recently, scoring 20 points or less in four straight games and averaging 19 points per game this season. Although they have found some success at times, they’re still struggling.
Philadelphia Eagles -6.5 over New Orleans Saints (-110)
Jalen Hurts is still questionable in this matchup for Philadelphia, but the offense hasn’t lost much with Gardner Minshew under center. The Eagles are still the top-scoring offense in the NFL, with 29.7 points per game.
New Orleans averages 20.2 points but has only scored 13.5 points per game in their previous four contests, including being shut out by the 49ers. Philadelphia will limit their turnovers after having four last week, and New Orleans will fail to keep up with their potent offense.
