NFL Week 17 Outlook; Sunday, Jan. 2, 12:00 PM CST
The 17th week of the NFL season has arrived. We have no Thursday Night Football but 15 games on Sunday, which is epic. In Week 18, all 16 games will occur on Sunday. There are countless games with playoff implications this week, which should make for some exciting football.
Before you place your bets, you better prepare to win. We have a lot of data to look at this week, so let’s not waste the stats. Here is your Week 17 betting outlook!
Tampa Bay Buccaneers Travel to New York to Face the Jets
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are surging and are coming off a win over the Panthers. They covered the spread and won the AFC South, making Buccaneers’ bettors very happy.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will travel to New York to face the Jets. The one seed is still a possibility, but they need to win.
The New York Jets are a horrendous football team, but they did win and cover last week. The Buccaneers are favored by 13 points, and 84% of bettors are taking this side of the line. 83% of bettors are taking the over of 45.5 points.
Philadelphia Eagles Travels to D.C. to Face The Washington Football Team
The Philadelphia Eagles are better than the Washington Football Team on paper and in the standings. Washington should be embarrassed following their loss to the Dallas Cowboys. Dak Prescott threw for 300 yards in the first half in an embarrassing game for one of the NFL’s best defense.
The Eagles are -3.5, and a hefty majority of bettors like this side of the line. Washington needs to get some players back from the COVID-19 Injured List before you can make an educated bet on this game.
The reason you should take Philadelphia is that they are playing for something. Washington is not alive in the NFC, and they are also 5-9-1 ATS.
