It’s the last week of the season. The NFL has been so hard to pick this year. I was so happy to read that Las Vegas sports books have had their most successful year in history on NFL wagers.
Glad to know I’m not the only one getting killed every week.
Every year week 17 is tricky. You gotta figure out who is playing for something and which games are actually meaningful. In many cases teams will rest their starters in preparation for the playoffs.
I’m gonna stay away from all those meaningless games and pick the ones where both teams should be out to win.
Let’s go with the Tampa Bay Bucs (-7) over Atlanta.
I like Arizona (-2.5) over the Rams.
I like the Bengals (+14) to hang in there against the Ravens.
I like the Browns (-9.5) to blow out the Steelers.
I like the Seahawks (-7) over San Francisco.
I like the Eagles (+6.5) to cover against the Washington Football Team.
Give me the Cowboys (-1.5) over the Giants.
And for my bread and butter pick, I like the Lions (+4) over the Vikings and for that game to go way over 53 points.
Been a fun season. If you’ve been picking the opposites all year I’m happy for you and you’re welcome. I’ll take another shot at it next season.
***SEASON RECORD***: 65-69-4 (6-6-1 last week) (9-10 on Vikings picks this year)
