NFL Week 17 Outlook; Sunday, Jan. 2, 12:00 PM CST and 3:05 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!
Los Angeles Rams Travel to Baltimore to Face the Ravens
The Los Angeles Rams are coming off a big win over the Minnesota Vikings by a 30-23 margin. They are playing very good football with an 11-4 SU record and an 8-7 ATS mark. The Rams are -3.5, and 88% of bettors like this side of the line.
87% of bettors are taking the over of 46.5 points on Sunday. The Baltimore Ravens have been very bad lately, and a big reason for this is Lamar Jackson.
Jackson has either been hurt or just underperformed because of an inability to hit tight windows.
Denver Broncos Travel to Los Angeles to Face the Chargers
The Los Angeles Chargers have won the award for being the most inconsistent team in the NFL. Last week, Justin Herbert and the Chargers were defeated by the Texans 41-29. The Broncos are struggling without Teddy Bridgewater, but their defense has kept them in games.
The defense for Denver is the one strength of this club. The spread for the Chargers is set at -5.5, and 76% of bettors like this side of the line. Yet, both teams are 7-8 ATS in 2021.
The total is set at 45 points, and 57% of bettors like the over.
