NFL Week 17 Over/Under Picks

Written by on December 26, 2018

If you do most of your football betting, then you are running out of time to give that bankroll a boost before the season comes to an end. This coming Sunday is the final weekend of the NFL regular season, and there are still some playoff spots up for grabs, so it’s all to play for.

We have gone over the NFL Week 17 schedule to see if we can track down some winners, and we think we have already done that without SU and ATS picks, but we are also going to use this space to pick out some potential O/U winners. Without further ado, let’s get right to the picks.

NFL Week 17 Over/Under Picks

Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants (OVER 41 ½)

At the midway point of the season, the belief was that Dallas would not be in the postseason and that they would be looking for a new coach at the end of the year. What a difference a few weeks makes, as the arrival of Amari Cooper seemed to wake this team up and get them headed in the right direction.

They come into the final week of the season already assured of a playoff spot as they prepare to face the New York Giants. It’s going to be interesting to see just how many starters the Cowboys put in this weekend, as they face a Giants team that has found their scoring touch, with 5 of their last 7 games going OVER. I am looking at more of the same for this one.

  • The total has gone UNDER in 17 of Dallas’s last 24 games
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of NY Giants’s last 5 games when playing Dallas

Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers (OVER 45)

There are a lot of reasons why the Detroit Lions have had a poor season, but most of the blame has to go to their inability to score points. Over the course of the last 6 weeks, the Lions have only managed to hit the 20-point mark once, so it’s perhaps no real surprise that they have seen the under hit in all 6 of those games.

We can perhaps expect something a little different this weekend, though, as 8 of their last 10 meetings with the Packers have gone OVER. Green Bay has seen 2 of their last 3 games go that route, too, so let’s stick with the OVER in this one.

  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Detroit’s last 5 games
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of Green Bay’s last 5 games when playing Detroit

Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins (OVER 42)

The Eagles needed a miracle finish to the season to get anywhere near the NFL Playoffs, and with 5 wins in their last 6 games, they are close to finding that miracle. They still need to come out and win this one, while also hoping that Minnesota loses to Chicago, so look for them to put the pedal to the metal right from the start in this one.

The Redskins are not the favorites for NFL Week 17 against the Eagles.

The Eagles offense has actually been better with Nick Foles under center, scoring a combined 62 points in their last 2 games, with the OVER hitting in each of their last 3. The OVER has also hit in 2 of the Redskins last 3 games, so let’s stick with it.

  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of Philadelphia’s last 10 games on the road
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Washington’s last 6 games at home

LA Chargers at Denver Broncos (OVER 41 ½)

The Denver Broncos are not usually a team that you turn to when looking to play the OVER, as they have seen the point total go that route just once in their last 10 games.

With that in mind, it would be easy to simply pick the under and move on here, but by doing so, you would be totally ignoring what the Chargers have done this season. This is particularly true when talking about the Chargers on the road, as they have seen 5 of their 7 games away from home go the way of the OVER. The number here is low enough that we might just see it again.
