2023 NFL Week 17 O/U Picks: We are heading into the penultimate week of the NFL regular season, yet it seems we are not really that much closer to knowing who will make the playoffs and who will miss out. MyBookie Sportsbook NFL Odds, American Football NFL Lines
Sure, some teams have already clinched, while others have been officially eliminated, but there is still a lot to be decided before we know ho will play who in the opening weekend of the postseason. This season has been odd in that every time we think we know how things will play out, we get another batch of twists and upsets that make it that much more difficult to decide how it will all go. That said, the matchups this weekend will help sort some of those things out, but don’t expect to see everything tied up in a neat little bow. We didn’t have the best of it in Week 16, so let’s see if we can bounce back with our NFL O/U picks for Week 17.
Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys
Prior to the start of every NFL season, we have a team or two that go down as a sexy pick for the bettors. The Detroit Lions were in that conversation this year and they have very much lived up to the hype. They clinched the division title last weekend and have a legit shot at getting the #1 seed in the NFC, although they might need to win out to make that happen. That will be easier said than done, as a trip to Dallas to face the Cowboys is by no means an easy game. Dallas is in, but they have also lost 2 in a row and will want to snap out of that before the playoffs start. In Week 17, Dallas has seen 10 of their last 14 games go UNDER, as well as in 4 of their last 6 games overall.
Carolina Panthers at Jacksonville Jaguars
This might be a bit of a risky bet until we know the status of Trevor Lawrence for this weekend. The Jaguars QB hurt his shoulder last week and is listed as questionable for the upcoming game against the Carolina Panthers. My guess is that he will give it a go, especially with the season essentially on the line for the Jaguars, who are in the midst of a 4-game losing streak. The Panthers look like a good bet to have the #1 draft pick next year, so you do have to wonder how inspired they will be to go out and get the win. All signs and trends point to the under for this one, but I have a feeling that we might just see the total creep OVER.
New Orleans Saints at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
This is arguably one of the biggest games of the week, as it could potentially decide the winner of the NFC South. If the Buccaneers win, they will clinch the division, so the majority of the pressure in this one is on the Saints, who need the W to stay alive. All of that means that both teams will be going all out to get the result they need, which could well result in some big points hitting the board. The Bucs have seen the OVER hit in 4 of their last 5 games, so let’s jump all over that trend.
