NFL Week 17 Predictions, Betting Preview & Picks

Here we go with another round of crucial NFL games before the New Year. Below we look at the three games live on Sky along with our NFL Week 17 predictions and picks for some added interest. Good luck if you are playing.


Jacksonville Jaguars @ Houston Texans

The Houston Texans (10-5) meet the Jacksonville Jaguars (5-10) at the NRG Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Texans went down to a 32-30 loss on the road at the Philadephia Eagles last Sunday.

Deshaun Watson has completed 68.1% of his passes for 3,931 yards, 26 touchdowns and nine interceptions.  Watson has two or more touchdown passes in 13 of his last 20 games. DeAndre Hopkins and Ryan Griffin have combined for 1,722 receiving yards and 11 touchdowns, while Keke Coutee has 28 receptions.

The Jaguars claimed a 17-7 win on the road at the Miami Dolphins last Sunday.

Cody Kessler is completing 64.9% of his passes for 709 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions.  Kessler and Blake Bortles have combined for 15 touchdown passes and 12 interceptions this season. Dede Westbrook and Donte Moncrief have combined for 1,354 receiving yards and eight touchdowns, while T.J. Yeldon has 55 receptions.

The Houston Texans are looking for a victory here in order to keep their hopes of a top-two seed alive and with the Jaguars having little to play for, they look to be worth backing on the Point Spread -7.5 with Paddy Power at 11/10.

Jaguars @ Texans Pick:

Point Spread – Houston Texans -7.5 @ 11/10 with Paddy Power


Chicago Bears @ Minnesota Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings (8-1-6) face the Chicago Bears (11-4) at the US Bank Stadium on Sunday afternoon. The Vikings secured a 27-9 win on the road at the Detroit Lions last Sunday.

Kirk Cousins is completing 70.7% of his passes for 4,166 yards, 29 touchdowns and 10 interceptions.  Cousins has two or more touchdown passes in 14 of his last 21 games. Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs have combined for 2,309 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns, while Kyle Rudolph has 60 receptions.

The Bears won 14-9 on the road at the San Francisco 49ers last Sunday.

Mitchell Trubisky is completing 66.4 percent of his passes for 3,060 yards, 24 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. Trubisky has two or more touchdown passes in seven of his last 10 games. Tarik Cohen and Allen Robinson have combined for 1,471 receiving yards and nine touchdowns while Taylor Gabriel has 63 receptions.

The Vikings are looking for a third straight victory to keep their playoff hopes alive, while the Bears still have an outside chance of getting a top-two seed in the NFC.  The Bears +4.5 on the Point Spread looks generous and is worth backing at 10/11 with William Hill.

Bears @ Vikings Pick:

Point Spread – Chicago Bears +4.5 @ 10/11 with William Hill


Indianapolis Colts @ Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans (9-6) meet the Indianapolis Colts (9-6) at the Nissan Stadium on Sunday evening. The Titans won 25-16 on home turf against the Washington Redskins last Saturday afternoon.

Marcus Mariota has thrown for 2,528 yards, 11 touchdowns and eight interceptions on 68.9% passing, while Derrick Henry has rushed for 966 yards and 12 touchdowns.  Corey Davis leads the Titans’ receiving corps with 60 catches for 843 yards and 4 touchdowns.

The Colts edged out the New York Giants 28-27 on home turf last Sunday.

Andrew Luck has thrown for 4,308 yards, 36 touchdowns and 14 interceptions on 67.2% passing, while Marlon Mack has rushed for 789 yards and eight touchdowns.  T.Y. Hilton has 74 catches for 1,209 yards and six touchdowns, while Eric Ebron has 62 grabs for 690 yards and 12 touchdowns this season.

There’s a playoff spot and a potential division title up for grabs here. The Titans may have home advantage, but with eight wins in their last nine games, it’s the Colts who are the real form team and they could be worth an interest -3.5 on the Point Spread at 21/20 with Sportingbet. 

Colts @ Titans Pick:

Point Spread – Indianapolis Colts -3.5 @ 21/20 with Sportingbet
