2018 NFL Week 17 is sure to bring some joy and heartbreak, as it may well be when the playoff fates of several teams are ultimately decided. The hope is always that we have some meaningful games on the schedule in Week 17, and the last few seasons have definitely not disappointed in that regard. Let’s look ahead to Week 17 as we make out final regular season NFL betting predictions.
2018 NFL Week 17 Early Betting Picks for Every Game
The @Jaguars have a top-flight defense. They were on the brink of getting to the Super Bowl a year ago.

Cleveland Browns at Baltimore Ravens
The Ravens may very well be in a position where they need a win to get in, and if that is the case, then they should get it here.
Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills
The Bills famously made the playoffs on the last day of the season last year before going out in the opening round. Don’t see them getting in this year, but I will take them to win this one.
Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins
I believe that the Eagles will have the East locked up at this point and may choose to rest some guys. That could make for an upset.
Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans
The Titans left it late to get into the playoffs in 2017, and if they need to do it again this year, they should be able to get in with a win over the Colts.
Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers
A nice divisional match-up to close out the season and one that could potentially win the Packers the division as they win out.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans
This looks to be one of the better match-ups of the week, and while I think it will be close, I am taking the Texans at home.
Oakland Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs
This looks to be a tough one to call, especially with big changes coming for both teams in 2018. Slight edge to the Chiefs at Arrowhead.
Chicago Bears at Minnesota Vikings
The North is going to be a slugfest between the Vikings and Packers, with Minnesota doing their part with a win here.
New York Jets at New England Patriots
I’m not convinced that the Patriots will be great this year, but they will be more than good enough to beat the Jets.
Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints
The Saints beat the Panthers 3 times lasts season, including in the playoffs. I like them to win again in the Big Easy.
Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants
A solid NFC East battle to end the season, but will it have playoff implications for these two? Not sure about that, but I do think the Cowboys win this one.
Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers
It is a tough schedule for the Steelers this season, but it ends with a game that they should have no problem winning.
Atlanta Falcons at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Falcons are certainly good enough to make it into the playoffs this year, and they may well punch their ticket with a win in Tampa.
LA Chargers at Denver Broncos
The Chargers just missed out on the playoffs last year and may need this one to have a shot this time around. I like them to get the win.
San Francisco 49ers at LA Rams
For me, the Rams and the Vikings are the class of the NFC. Look for the Rams to finish strong with a big win over the 49ers.
Arizona Cardinals at Seattle Seahawks
I have a feeling that this one will be meaningless, but let’s take the Seahawks to win at home.
