It’s the final week of the regular season and it looks to be an exciting one. There are still plenty of important games with seeding and playoffs spots to be determined. I went heavy on the important games so let’s get one more good day of the holiday vacation and let’s check out the best games to wager on in Week 17.
Record this season: 28-32-2
Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants (Over 44.5)
This is a must-win for both teams; both the Giants and Cowboys need a win and a Washington loss to win the NFC East. After initially struggling on offense since losing Dak Prescott, Dallas has turned it around by scoring an average of 36 points during its three-game winning streak.
The Giants defense that was allowing 12.5 per-game during their five-game winning streak has regressed by allowing an average of 24 points over their last three games. The Giants have been consistent on the under, hitting the over just twice this year, one of those games being against Dallas, it’ll happen again this week.
Seattle Seahawks (-5.5) vs. San Francisco 49ers
The Seahawks are playoff-bound, but with a win and a Saints loss they climb into the two-seed, so this game has meaning for them. San Francisco is literally limping into the end of the season where it couldn’t put its complete team on the field all season. The Seahawks defeated the 49ers 37-27 in their last matchup, but since then the defense has improved immensely allowing 12.2 points-per-game over the last five games.
Minnesota Vikings vs. Detroit Lions (Over 54.5)
This game obviously means nothing for either team except to end the season on a high note. Both of these teams are able to put up points; Detroit has scored 24+ points in four of its last five and Minnesota has scored 27+ in five of its last six. Both of these defenses are in the bottom five points allowed, this is probably why Minnesota has the second-best over percentage, while Detroit has the fourth-best.
Atlanta Falcons vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Moneyline)
The Buccaneers have clinched a playoff berth and can cement the five-seed with a win. The Falcons currently have the fourth pick, but with a loss and a Houston win, they can move up to third, and this is a team that will have to make some important decisions in the offseason. Tampa Bay has won three straight while the Falcons have lost four in a row, I don’t see them putting up a fight to win this.
