NFL Pick of the Week: Week 17

Last week I enjoyed a classic backdoor cover as the Bengals lost by 8 to the Brownies. I was getting 10 and that brings my season record to 13-3.

I generally find week 17 to be the hardest in the NFL as it’s often a guess as to who’s playing, who’s sitting, and who’s trying. My guess will be that the Jets would love nothing more than to hurt their bitter rival, our New England Patriots. Besides being less than impressive recently, the Pats seem to be taking a conservative approach and trying to establish a running game. That could help keep the score down which in turn favors taking a generous spread. As long as the Jets give a strong effort, I like their chances of covering.

Week 17 pick: Jets+13.5
Season Record: 13-3
