The Week 17 NFL Odds Are Posted At The Bottom Of This Article

Cowboys vs. RedskinsWeek 17 of the 2012 NFL campaign is going to get underway this weekend. Below you will find the current list of 2012 Week 17 NFL lines and spreads along with a breakdown of the Week 17 NFL odds. Be sure to check out the free NFL picks from the expert handicappers at Bankroll Sports this week…

There are only a total of 12 of the 16 games that are on the board as of Monday morning that we are able to dissect here at Bankroll Sports, but most of the games that are off the board are very questionable as to how they are being handled by some teams.

The Houston Texans and the Indianapolis Colts are both very much so up in the air with how things are going to go on Sunday. Houston knows that it is playing for the top seed in the AFC playoffs, while the Colts are playing for nothing but getting ready for the playoffs. It is still unknown how hard Indy is going to try to win this game, knowing that it is going on the road either to Baltimore or New England regardless of what happens in this one, but it is still going to be the first game that Head Coach Chuck Pagano is on the sidelines for his team since early on in the campaign.

It is equally suspect how the Pittsburgh Steelers are going to handle their Week 17 game now that their season is over against the Cleveland Browns, who are dealing with a questionable QB Brandon Weeden, who got hurt last week with a shoulder problem. Weeden isn’t the only starting quarterback that is up in the air due to injury, as the Oakland Raiders lost QB Carson Palmer last week to a rib injury and is very much so up in the air. That’s keep the Raiders and the San Diego Chargers off the board in the final game for Head Coach Norv Turner and GM AJ Smith with the Bolts.

The Atlanta Falcons and Tampa Bay Buccaneers are off the board, knowing that Atlanta is likely resting its starter and Tampa Bay has to be ready to sit down QB Josh Freeman after he has thrown eight picks in his last two games combined.

It shouldn’t be considered all that much of a surprise that there are some absolutely huge favorites in Week 17 with some teams that have all to play for against others that are probably better served losing to try to improve their stock in the NFL Draft. The biggest of the favs is the Denver Broncos. The Broncos have rolled to wins in each of their last 10 games to get to 12-3, and they need to win to lock up a first round bye in the playoffs. They’re taking on the Kansas City Chiefs, who need to lose to win the No. 1 pick in the NFL Draft. KC is a 16-point underdog, making it the biggest underdog on the campaign.

The San Francisco 49ers are favored by 15 over the Arizona Cardinals in a game that has to be won to take down the NFC West title. If by chance Arizona pulls off the upset, the door opens for the Seattle Seahawks, who are the hottest team in football at the moment with 150 points scored in their last three games. Seattle isn’t likely to move up from the No. 5 seed, but just the possibility that the Niners could lose parlayed with the fact that the club is playing so well would clearly make Head Coach Pete Carroll think twice about putting anyone on the bench for this game. That’s why the Seahawks, playing at home, are favored by 10.5 in spite of the fact that their foes, the St. Louis Rams are playing well at the moment.

The New England Patriots are trying to move up in the AFC playoff picture from the No. 3 seed, and they are taking on the Miami Dolphins in Week 17 in a 4:25 ET kickoff. The Fins are getting 10.5 in spite of the fact that this is their equivalent of the Super Bowl. These two teams played a very tight encounter a few weeks ago in South Beach, but since that point, New England has been rolling, and it doesn’t look like it is going to be stopped in this one. The other massive favorties are the New York Giants at -9.5 against the Philadelphia Eagles in what should be the final game for Head Coach Andy Reid in the City of Brotherly Love.

These aren’t nearly the only important games of the weekend, though. The Sunday Night Football game between the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Redskins will determine which team is going to win the NFC East. The Skins, playing at home, are favored by the value of home field advantage at -3 in what should be one of the biggest games of the entire season. Meanwhile, the Chicago Bears are -3.5 in a do or die game against the Detroit Lions.

Of course, the Chicago game means absolutely nothing if the Minnesota Vikings figure out how to take down the Green Bay Packers at 4:25 p.m. ET. The Pack are the favored side at -3.5, but we have to remember that the Vikes were the big time underdogs in Week 16 against the Texans as well. This one is at home, and if it is won by Minnesota, it sets up a clash between these same two teams in all likelihood next week at Lambeau Field in the first round of the playoffs.

The Buffalo Bills are favored by 3.5 at home against the dysfunctional New York Jets in a battle to stay out of the gutter in the AFC East. The Cincinnati Bengals are giving three to the Baltimore Ravens. Baltimore can still move up in the AFC playoff picture with a win and a New England loss, but largely, this game means nothing to a pair of teams that are going to be playing next week in the first round of the playoffs in the AFC. Four points is the NFL point spread for the Tennessee Titans over the Jacksonville Jaguars, while the New Orleans Saints are favored by 4.5 at home against the Carolina Panthers. This battle of two hot teams is featuring the highest ‘total’ of the week at 54 to boot. There are no games at this point that feature ‘totals’ below 41.5, but that will likely change as the week wears on. Keep it locked right here to Bankroll Sports for the Week 17 odds that are listed just below this post that we will keep updated throughout the week.
