NFL Schedule, Score Predictions and Best Bets for Week 17 from our Top Rated Handicapper.
The last week of the NFL season has historically been a trap. Every statistical piece of data you have collected in the previous 16 weeks essentially means nothing. With teams fighting for the all important number one draft selection to teams resting stars for the playoffs its the worst week of betting in the NFL. Having said that, one matchup stands out with the spread set at a ridiculous number.
After squandering chances to secure the AFC West title over the last two weeks, the Kansas City Chiefs will try to lock down the top seed in the conference when they host the Oakland Raiders on Sunday. The Chiefs can clinch home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs with a win, but they could slide all the way to the No. 5 seed with a third consecutive loss. Yes, since the departure of Kareem Hunt they could be facing a third consecutive loss and quite possible four if not for an overtime win over the Ravens. The spread is set at 14.5 and thats too many points for a Raiders offense thats sadly enough for Oakland is finding its way under Jon Gruden. This game has upset alert all over it but im willing to take the +14.5.
According to Scorecast with over 10,000 score simulations run the Raiders represent at the spread value losing by an average of 6 with the spread set at +14.5. Don’t miss our week 17 Best Bets and View Live ODDS & Bet the NFL HERE
