2019 NFL Week 17 SU Betting Picks

Written by on December 23, 2019

The final week of the season is now upon us, with the fates of several teams very much hanging in the balance. We have several games in Week 17 that are going to have an impact on how the playoffs end up playing out. We already know, for the most part, who is in, but we still don’t know who will be seeded where. The Baltimore Ravens have booked their #1 spot in the AFC, but outside of them, the seedings are still pretty wide open, especially in the NFC.

With all of that in mind, it’s time to look ahead to the final week of the season and make some picks. In this piece, we will focus on straight up NFL Betting picks, but we will also have ATS and O/U selections coming your way.

2019 NFL Week 17 SU Betting Picks

Buffalo Bills over New York Jets

The Buffalo Bills are one of the biggest surprise teams of the season, and while they lost the chance to win the AFC East after losing to the Patriots in Week 16, they will still be in the playoffs this season as the #5 seed. They will close out the regular season with a trip to New York to face a Jets team that is coming off a big win over the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Given that there is really nothing to play for here, it’s a tough one to call, but I think that the Bills will want to head into the postseason on the heels of a win as opposed to a losing skid.

NFL Week 17 Betting Trends

  • Jets are 1-7 SU in their last 8 games on the road
  • Bills are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games played in week 17

Cleveland Browns over Cincinnati Bengals in NFL Week 17

There are several teams who are closing out the season on a real low, with the Bengals sitting at the bottom of the heap. The Bengals have just one win on the season and are going to be getting the #1 pick in the upcoming NFL draft. They are way worse off than the Browns, or so it would seem.

Cleveland spent a lot of money in the offseason to build a strong squad good enough to make the postseason. They have fallen well short, though, and while they have been a total disappointment, they should still be good enough to win this one.

  • Browns are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games played in December
  • Bengals are 1-6 SU in their last 7 games at home

Atlanta Falcons over Tampa Bay Buccaneers

While there are a lot of teams who have long since been eliminated from playoff contention, they will all still feel as though they have something to play for. For the Buccaneers, the final week of the season will be all about getting to .500 and avoiding a losing season.

For the Falcons, it will be about finishing the second half strong, although you need to wonder if their 5 wins in their last 7 games will be enough to save the job of head coach Dan Quinn. Whatever the case, I think that it will be the Falcons who get the win here.

  • Falcons are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games against an opponent in the NFC South division
  • Buccaneers are 1-4 SU in their last 5 games when playing at home against Atlanta

Indianapolis Colts over Jacksonville Jaguars in NFL Week 17

We have another pair of teams who have been a real disappointment this season, The Jaguars expected more after landing QB Nick Foles in the preseason, but injury and poor play saw him sidelined for the majority of the season.

For the Colts, it has been a second half disaster, as they have gone from the top of the AFC South to out of the playoffs after a brutal run of form. The Colts, though, are coming off a very big win over the Panthers and I like them to win again here.
