We are very close to the end of the regular season in the NFL, but with 2 weeks still to play, there is still time for the standings to change and the final seeding to look different from what they are now. We should see some things resolved in Week 17, with several teams either on the brink of clinching a playoff spot or being officially eliminated, but we can probably also guarantee that some things are going to carry over into the final week of the season, which should make Week 18 a lot of fun to watch. For now, though, we are all bout Week 17, so let’s see if we can send some winning NFL Betting picks your way, starting with a trio of games that we like in the point total.
NFL Week 17 O/U Picks & Predictions with Just Two More Weeks Left Until the Playoffs
Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions – Over 52
Things are incredibly tight in the playoff race in the NFC, with the Detroit Lions still very much in the picture. That said, Detroit is probably going to need to win their final 2 games of the season to have any real shot at sneaking in, and this is certainly a game that looks to be winnable. The Bears are long since out of playoff contention and are coming into this one on an 8-game losing skid that has been ugly to watch at times. The Bears have been a great OVER pick of late, though, with 8 of their last 9 games going the way of the OVER. It has been much the same story for Detroit, with 5 of their last 7 going OVER, as well as 10 of their last 12 versus teams from the NFC.
Cleveland Browns at Washington Commanders – UNDER 40 ½
At 7-7-1, the Washington Commanders are clinging to life in the NFC playoff race and are currently occupying the 7th and final spot. They have lost back-to-back games ahead of this one, though, and another defeat here might well spell doom when you consider the number of teams currently hot on their heels. This season is essentially over for the Browns, as they are now at the bottom of the AFC North and officially eliminated from playoff contention. How competitive are they going to be and are they up for playing the role of spoiler? The UNDER has hit in 5 straight games for the Browns, while the Commanders have seen the UNDER hit in 10 of their last 12 at home.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens – UNDER 36
We have a fun one set to go on Sunday night, with AFC North rivals, the Pittsburgh Steelers and Baltimore Ravens set to lock horns. The Steelers are coming off a huge win over the Las Vegas Raiders that kept their playoff hopes alive, but they also need to win out and get some help along the way. The Ravens are in the postseason, but they are also in a race for the division title with the Bengals, so both teams have it all to play for here. This is a matchup that always seems to deliver tight defensive battles, and I just don’t see this one being any different. 5 of the last 7 conference games for the Steelers have gone UNDER, as have 4 of their last 5 versus the Ravens.
