NFL Football Week 17 2023 Preview

NFL Football Week 17 2023 Preview. All but two games this week are favored by the home team. San Francisco has the largest spread at 13.5 points as they visit the Commanders, and the Rams are favored by 6 points to play in New York against the Giants. Both are West Coast teams traveling to the East Coast.

With only two games left, many playoff spots are still up for grabs. It will only get more intense.

Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys

The Lions have the better record, but the Cowboys are the only team in the NFL that is undefeated at home (7-0), averaging 39.9 points per game. They are 6-1 ATS at home, while the Lions are 6-2 ATS on the road. Gamblers might have difficulty deciding on which side of the spread to pick, so they could choose the total instead. This game has the highest total of the Week 17 matchups (53.5). At home, Dallas has gone 5-2 on the Over, while Detroit has gone Over 5-3 while on the road. So, put your limits in for the Over on this game.

Detroit has already clinched the NFC North title, giving them their first home playoff game in 30 years. I wonder what those tickets are going for? Dallas has clinched a playoff spot, but they’ll need this win if they hope to overtake the Eagles in the NFC East.

Las Vegas Raiders at Indianapolis Colts

The Raiders have come off a surprising win against the Chiefs in Kansas City. That’s only the second time they’ve won there in the last decade. And the week before, the Raiders blew out the Chargers 63-21. The Colts might have the better record over the season, but the Raiders have shown a massive turnaround in their last two games.

Both teams are still in the race for the playoffs. The Colts are tied with the Jaguars and Texans for the division title. The Jaguars are on a four-game losing streak but have the easiest schedule left as they take on the Panthers and the Titans.

If the Raiders continue their offensive push, expect Vegas to win and go over the total of 44.5.

New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills

The Patriots might be down, but they’re not out. They pulled off an upset win against the Broncos in Week 16, with Bailey Zappe having his best game as a starter. However, they are 0-4 ATS in the AFC East when on the road. Can Zappe turn that around against Buffalo?

The Bills are on a three-game winning streak and have a sizable spread against New England, but they are an inconsistent team this year. If they can win this one and the Dolphins lose, that could set up one of the best season-ending matchups between the Bills and Dolphins for the Division Title.

Miami Dolphins at Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens beating the 49ers last week moved the needle toward Lamar Jackson getting the MVP award this season. His defense helped by swarming Brock Purdy relentlessly, causing him to throw four picks and get pulled from the game in the fourth quarter with a possible injury.

The Dolphins showed they can beat a quality team by overpowering the Cowboys 22-20 in Miami last week. They don’t do as well on the road, though, because they are only 4-3 SU. The Ravens are 5-2 SU at home but are on a short week after playing Christmas Monday.

Both teams have clinched a Wild Card spot but want their Division title. This is another game of powerful offenses, with Miami averaging 27.1 points per game on the road and Baltimore averaging a +13.9-point differential in their home games.

I think Baltimore is unstoppable at this point, so look for them to win and cover in this AFC thriller.
