NFL Betting Picks You Shouldn’t Let Pass in 2017

Written by on September 1, 2017

If you’re gearing up for the quickly approaching 2017 regular season and you’re looking for some wagers that you simply shouldn’t let pass this coming season, then look no further. If you haven’t noticed, there are a lot of NFL props for 2017 and it could get confusing. So, I’ve got a handful of expert NFL betting picks that are just for you! Let’s get started.

NFL Betting Picks You Shouldn’t Let Pass in 2017

Houston Texans Win Total Odds

Houston 8.5 Wins

While he doesn’t get the credit I feel he deserves, Houston Texans head coach Bill O’Brien has been absolutely masterful in leading his team to an identical nine wins in each of the last three seasons – without any competent play at quarterback. As a matter of fact, now with veteran Tom Savage set to take over – and gifted rookie Deshaun Watson waiting in the wings, I’m thinking the Texans are absolute locks to top their 2017 win total odds of 8.5 games. Maybe it’s me, but I won’t be surprised one iota to see Houstonn make a push for the AFC title tilt. NFL Betting Pick: Over 8.5 Wins

Seattle Seahawks Division Odds

NFC West

  • Seattle Seahawks -350
  • Arizona Cardinals +200
  • Los Angeles Rams +1600
  • San Francisco 49ers +2800
Analysis: Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks were solid, but not overly impressive in going 10-5-1 last season and I believe they will easily live up to their billing as the favorite to win the NFC West in 2017 after addressing some of their most pressing needs this offseason. Basically, with Arizona looking to rebound, San Francisco looking to rebuild and Los Angeles playing under the youngest head coach in league history and starting a quarterback that looked mediocre at best last season, there just won’t be a lot of challenges for the Seahawks to claim the NFC West crown in 2017. NFL Betting Pick: Seattle Seahawks Are the Seahawks a safe NFL betting pick this season?

Tampa Bay Buccaneers Win Total Odd

Analysis: Despite their uneven play this preseason, I believe Jameis Winston and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are virtual locks to top their 2017 win total odds after finishing last season ranked 19th in scoring (22.1 ppg) and 15th in points allowed (23.1 ppg) last season. The Buccaneers gave Winston a pair of elite targets by signing veteran wide receiver DeSean Jackson in free agency and drafting Alabama tight end O.J. Howard with the 19th overall pick in the draft to go along with perennial Pro Bowl wideout Mike Evans. Not only that, but the Bucs have a fairly manageable schedule that includes winnable home dates against the Bears, Lions and Jets and equally winnable road dates against the Bills and Dolphins. Right now, I’m thinking it’s a lock the bucs record nine wins at the minimum in 2017. NFL Betting Pick: Over 8 Wins

NY Giants Win Total Odds

Giants – 9 Wins

Analysis: After winning 11 games last season, I think Eli Manning and the New York Giants are virtual locks to fail to reach the 10-win mark in 2017 New York was outstanding defensively last season in ranking second in points allowed (17.8 ppg) and they’ve got a manageable schedule in 2017 that includes winnable non-division home dates against the Rams, Lions and Chargers and equally winnable road dates against the Niners, Buccaneers and Redskins. I like the Giants to go 4-2 in their six NFC East matchups, while bagging another six victories outside their NFC East matchups to reach the 10-win plateau in 2017. NFL Betting Pick: Over 9 Wins

NFL 2017 Projected Win Totals and Super Bowl Bets

Colts Don’t win Nine Games

Indianapolis 9 Wins

Analysis: Andrew Luck and the Indianapolis Colts put up a solid 25.7 points per game to rank eighth in scoring, but they also ooked mostly pitiful on defense after finishing 30th in total defense and in the bottom third in every other significant defensive statistical category. With Andrew Luck banged-up to start the season, I genuinely believe that Indiana will fail to reach the 10-win mark by two or three games at the minimum. Indianapolis has a difficult non-division schedule that includes home games against the Steelers, broncos and cardinals and road dates against the Bengals and Seahawks. I’m genuinely expecting this to be head coach Chuck pagano’s final season in Indianapolis. NFL Betting Pick: Under 9 Wins

Final NFL Betting Predictions
