Week-17 Betting Update And Sunday's Picks
I entered last Sunday at +$81.
I then laid $80 on the Bears at -8. They won by 24-points.
At 4:00 I took the over of 50-points in the Dallas/Philly game and won $30 there.
I also laid $40 on the Packers -3 at Tennessee. The Packers won by 26-points.
That made me 3-0 on the day (+$150) and boosted my total tab to +$231.
Her goes my opportunity to lose it all!
1:00 Steelers at Browns -9.5 (over/under 43.5)
The Steelers can't really move from the #3-seed in the AFC. They will rest many starters.
They will also be without CB Joe Haden who tested positive for Covid on Friday.
The Browns need to win to get into the playoffs.
They are also facing Covid issues, and have all week.
With Roethlisberger taking the day off I don't think Mason Rudolph can give them enough to play with a desperate Browns team.
I'll give the 9.5-points and take the Browns for $60.
4:25 Cardinals -2.5 at Rams (over/under 41.5)
Both teams can get into the playoffs with a win.
The Rams can get in with a Bears loss as well. Both games start at 4:25, so the Rams may be trying to sneak a peak at the scoreboard to keep an eye on that Bears game.
The Rams have beaten the Cardinals eight straight times, and have also covered the spread in those eight games.
Card's QB Kyler Murray is still nursing a leg injury and he's going-up against the leagues top defensive unit.
The Rams will start back-up QB John Wolford, who will be making his NFL debut since Jared Goff will miss the game after having thumb surgery last week.
It's going to be tough for both teams to move the ball.
I'll lay $30 on the under of 41.5-points.
8:20 Washington -4 at Philadelphia (over/under 44-points)
Both teams need to win to get into the playoffs.
Washington will start Alex Smith at QB after he missed the last three games with injury.
The Eagles have allowed more than 500 total yards in consecutive losses to Arizona and Dallas.
This game should have a wet and slippery aspect to it.
It seems that Philly's QB Jalen Hurts has taken a step back in the last gouple of weeks and I don't think he'll have enough against a decent Washington defense to keep pace with Alex Smith, Terry McLaurin and potentially Antonio Gibson.
Give me the Football Team at -4 for $40.
Good luck with any action you take today!!
