The Grueling Truth - Where Legends Speak / NFL Week 17 Beating the Spread

NFL Week 17 Beating the Spread

Your points spread guide
Publish Date: 12/30/2018
Fact checked by: Simon Briffa

Cowboys at Giants(-5.5)

The Cowboys really have nothing to play for here and I look for Manning and Barkley to have big games.

Giants 27  Cowboys 17

Raiders at Chiefs(-14)

The Chiefs need this win to clinch home field throughout the playoffs and the Raiders are just playing out the string.

Chiefs 41 Raiders 20

Panthers at Saints(-7)

Neither team has anything to look forward to but the Panthers Quarterback situation will make a win hard to come by.

Saints 20 Panthers 10

Jets at Patriots(-13)

I am going with the dog in this one as the Patriots have not looked great as of late and Sam Darnold can score enough points to cover here.

Patriots 27  Jets 17

Eagles at Redskins(+6.5)

Philadelphia still has a shot at the playoffs and on top of that, they are just better than the Skins.

Eagles 24  Redskins 13

Lions at Packers(-8)

Both teams have had disappointing seasons, but Aaron Rodgers should cover this by himself.

Packers 30  Lions 17

Jaguars at Texans(-6.5)

The Texans are having injury problems at Wide Reciever, but I do not see the Jags scoring enough to make this a game.

Texans 24  Jaguars 6

Browns at Ravens(-5.5)

The Ravens are playing for a Divisional Championship and the Browns are playing for a winning season. Take the Browns and the points.

Ravens 20  Browns 17

Falcons at Buccaneers(-1)

Both teams have been bad, so I will take the home team here.

Bucs 27  Falcons 16

Dolphins at Bills(-5.5)

The Dolphins are more talented but the Bills are much tougher and more physical as a team.

Bills 24  Dolphins 13

Colts at Titans(-3.5)

The Colts are just a better unit, but the Titans are tough and physical. This one should go down to the wire.

Colts 24  Titans 23

Bengals at Steelers(-14.5)

The Bengals efforts for most of this season have been poor, plus you have the spectrum of being coached by Dumb and Dumber (Lewis-Jackson). Take the Steelers.

Steelers 38  Bengals 3

Bears at Vikings(-5)

Minnesota will be playing for their playoff lives and the Bears will be playing hoping to get a win and some help to secure the number 2 seed.

Vikings 26  Bears 20

Chargers at Broncos(+6.5)

Chargers still have an outside shot at winning the division and that hope should be enough to cover the spread here you would think.

Chargers 28  Broncos 16

Cardinals at Seahawks(-13)

Pete Carroll said he will not rest starters.

Seahawks 38 Cardinals 14

49ers at Rams(-10)

The Rams need this win to keep a bye week.

Rams 31  49ers 14
