Wagering on NFL Week 17 odds early can have its advantages. For instance, if you bet the Chiefs on the lookahead line of KC -10 last week, you are smiling today. That spread has increased to Chiefs -12.5 following Denver’s uninspired 51-14 loss to the Rams. Kansas City, meanwhile, was able to beat the Seahawks by 14 points last Saturday.
Arizona Cardinals at Atlanta Falcons
The Cardinals fought hard but blew a 10-point second-half lead against the Buccaneers on Sunday night, ultimately falling by a 19-16 score. The Falcons went into the frigid conditions of M & T Bank Stadium, and although rookie Desmond Ridder played much better than in his first start, Atlanta still dropped a 17-9 decision.
Arizona is now 4-11 and could be set to play out the last two games of coach Kliff Kingsbury’s tenure. Trace McSorley became the third quarterback to appear for Arizona this season Sunday night and didn’t acquit himself too poorly versus Tampa Bay, but the first-time starter’s biggest connection was with Greg Dortch and not DeAndre Hopkins or Marquise Brown. Colt McCoy could be ready to return from concussion protocol for this game, however, and whoever is under center will have a highly favorable matchup against a questionable Falcons defense in a dome environment.
Ridder completed 22 of 33 passes for 218 yards in Sunday’s loss while showing plenty of rapport with fellow rookie Drake London, who was his top receiver with a 7-96 line on nine targets. Rookie back Tyler Allgeier also continued his late-season ascent with 117 total yards and will have a favorable matchup against a Cardinals squad that’s given up 12 rushing TDs to RBS and an 89-694-5 line through the air to them as well.
The Falcons are up to four-point home favorites when looking at NFL Week 17 odds boards.

Chicago Bears at Detroit Lions
The Bears hung with the Bills for some time at cold, wind-whipped Soldier Field on Saturday before losing, 35-13. The Lions couldn’t come through as a road favorite against the Panthers, with Carolina trampling what had been an improving Detroit run defense before falling by a 37-23 score.
The Bears’ Justin Fields could have an opportunity for one of his breakout games in the friendly dome environment of Ford Field after rushing for 147 yards and two touchdowns on 13 carries in the first meeting with Detroit. If the Lions’ collapse versus the run carries over into this matchup, both David Montgomery and the just-activated Khalil Herbert could be in good shape to take advantage.
Jared Goff put together another impressive performance in Week 16 despite the loss, throwing for 355 yards and three touchdowns without an interception. DJ Chark continued to complement the short/mid-range exploits of Amon-Ra St. Brown nicely with a 4-108 line on five targets and could be primed for another strong showing on the fast track that is his home turf.
Despite their Week 16 stumble, the Lions are comfortable 5.5-point home favorite when looking at NFL Week 17 odds.
Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs
The Broncos took a crushing 51-14 defeat at the hands of the Rams on Christmas Day, pushing Denver’s record to 4-11 and pushing head coach Nathaniel Hackett out the door Monday before his first season at the top was even complete. The Chiefs weren’t able to truly separate from the visiting Seahawks, but they kept themselves in contention for the top spot in the AFC with a 24-10 win.
The Broncos will roll with Jerry Rosburg as the interim head coach for the next two games and try to salvage what has been a disastrous first season in Denver for Russell Wilson. The prized offseason acquisition threw another three interceptions and took six sacks despite having Courtland Sutton back in the fold, and he’ll now try to rediscover the success he’d been enjoying in Week 14 versus KC (247 yards, three TDs) before exiting with a concussion.
The Chiefs will aim to capitalize on Denver’s misery in this divisional rematch, even though the Broncos did pick off Patrick Mahomes three times in that first meeting. The Broncos were also surprisingly picked apart by the Rams’ Baker Mayfield on Sunday to the tune of 24 completions in 28 attempts for 230 yards and two touchdowns, but the outlook could be brightest for the backfield duo of Isiah Pacheco and Jerick McKinnon versus a defense that surrendered 118 rushing yards and three touchdowns to Los Angeles’ Cam Akers in Week 16.
The Chiefs are unsurprisingly almost two-touchdown favorites at Arrowhead Stadium in NFL Week 17 odds.
Miami Dolphins at New England Patriots
The Dolphins’ late-season swoon continued Christmas Day with a surprising 26-20 home loss at the hands of the Packers. The Patriots also continued to struggle, falling to the Bengals at home by a 22-18 score to leave their postseason hopes thinner than ever.
Miami’s troubles got a little worse Monday when Tua Tagovailoa, who already caused plenty of worry with his three-interception performance Sunday, was placed in concussion protocol for the second time this season Monday. With the Dolphins closing out the regular season with divisional clashes versus New England and the Jets and needing to win out to ensure a playoff spot, a potential Tua absence could hardly be more ill-timed.
The Patriots will hardly have any sympathy for their division rival considering the extent of their own troubles, which include a 7-8 record, including 3-4 at home, as well as four losses in the last five games New England’s Mac Jones’ play continues to be the subject of plenty of scrutiny considering its highly uneven quality of late, but a matchup against a Dolphins secondary 264 passing yards per road game may certainly help his cause. The Pats will also hope to get Damien Harris back in the fold from his thigh injury after Rhamondre Stevenson suffered through a particularly difficult performance against Cincy that included a key late fumble.
The Dolphins were 1.5-point road favorites as the week began.
Indianapolis Colts at New York Giants
The Colts had a horrific night offensively with Nick Foles under center as the former Super Bowl MVP threw three picks and Indy mustered only 3 points total. The Giants suffered a narrow loss to the Vikings on the road but still clinch a playoff berth with a win in this game.
The Giants’ Daniel Jones played one of his best games of the season against the Vikings, throwing for 334 yards while completing over 70 percent of his passes. Saquon Barkley also finished with 133 total yards, yet the loss leaves New York with a solid 8-6-1 record and in control of its destiny. The matchup here will be more favorable to Barkley than Jones, as Indy went into Monday night allowing 161.3 rushing yards per contest in the last three games.
The Colts were 3.5-point road underdogs ahead of their Monday night matchup in NFL Week 17 odds.
New Orleans Saints at Philadelphia Eagles
The Saints pulled out an unlikely win in extremely unfriendly conditions in Week 16, with New Orleans edging the Browns by a 17-10 score. The Eagles had to go with Gardner Minshew at quarterback in the absence of Jalen Hurts (shoulder) and fell just short against the Cowboys, 40-34.
The Saints’ Andy Dalton was unsurprisingly a non-factor in the very windy conditions, throwing for under 100 yards while also operating without Chris Olave (hamstring) and Jarvis Landry (IR-ankle). Olave could have a chance to return for this tough matchup for the air attack, but it could be Alvin Kamara, who posted 110 total yards versus Cleveland, who’s best off considering Philly is conceding 131.7 rushing yards per game in the last three.
Hurts’ availability or lack of thereof isn’t likely to be confirmed until later in the week, but the Eagles would presumably be in good shape with Minshew if he drew a second straight start with another week of practice under his belt. The backup finished with 355 passing yards and two touchdowns while also adding a rushing score versus Dallas, but his three turnovers helped sink Philadelphia in the close game. The Saints secondary presents a tough matchup as well, but Miles Sanders could be in a good spot to break back out after a couple of down weeks versus a New Orleans defense surrendering over 134 rushing yards per road game.
Even with the uncertainty surrounding Hurts, Philly is a 6.5-point home favorite as the week begins.
Carolina Panthers at Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Panthers kept themselves in contention for the NFC South crown with an impressive 37-23 win over the Lions that saw the backfield duo of D’Onta Foreman and Chuba Hubbard dominate Detroit on the ground. The Buccaneers fought hard and persevered in a 19-16 overtime victory against the Cardinals on Sunday night.
Sam Darnold also put together an impressive performance in the big win for Carolina, throwing for 250 yards and recording two total touchdowns. The entire offense arguably looked better than it has all season, and the Panthers now face a Bucs defense that’s had its share of bouts with inconsistency, especially against the run. Tampa Bay is giving up nearly 30 rushing yards per game more than last season and could therefore be an appealing target for Foreman and Hubbard.
Tom Brady and the offense finally came alive late in Sunday night’s win, but the Bucs did look very sluggish for a large part of the game against Arizona. Considering Carolina limited Tampa Bay to just three points in the first meeting of the season between the clubs and the Panthers have played tough defense overall under Steve Wilks, making this a potentially tricky spot for Brady and company.
In what could be one of the hardest-fought games of the week, the Buccaneers are standard three-point home favorites in NFL Week 17 odds.
Cleveland Browns at Washington Commanders
The Browns were upset at home in Week 16, struggling on offense under Deshaun Watson once again in a 17-10 loss to the Saints. The Commanders performed reasonably well in a tough assignment on the road against the 49ers before falling by a 37-20 score in a game that saw Carson Wentz replace an ineffective Taylor Heinicke.
Watson has how thrown for under 200 yards in three of his first four games, completing only 57.7 percent of his passes along the way while also throwing three interceptions. Granted, weather conditions didn’t help his cause Saturday and he did display some encouraging rapport with Amari Cooper, who brought in six of his throws. The Commanders are allowing only 212.6 passing yards per home game and have yielded a stingy 60.9 percent completion rate in that split, making this another potential uphill battle.
If Wentz does indeed retake the reins of the offense as the starter for this game, he’ll be facing a Browns defense allowing only 191.7 passing yards per road game and a minuscule 58.8 percent completion rate. Cleveland hasn’t pressured the quarterback particularly well (28 sacks in 15 games), so Wentz could at least have a chance to scan the field for high-upside targets such as Terry McLaurin and Jahan Dotson.
The Commanders are narrow 2.5-point home favorites in NFL Week 17 odds in what is a must-win scenario.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans
The Jaguars continued their rather remarkable late-season march toward a possible postseason berth, recording an impressive 19-3 victory over the Jets on the road Thursday night to open the Week 16 slate. The Texans continued their improved late-season play against the Titans on the road, and their hard work finally resulted in a win this time around.
Trevor Lawrence continued his strong play in Thursday’s win with 280 total yards and a rushing touchdown, and his efforts, combined with those of Travis Etienne, have Jacksonville thriving in Doug Pederson’s offensive system. However, the Texans defense could prove a tough challenge, as Houston has played some high-caliber clubs very close recently and now have some momentum following the win over Tennessee.
Davis Mills continues to struggle to put up even close to 200 passing yards per contest, but he did get Brandin Cooks back in Week 16 and has a respectable pass-catching corps despite Nico Collins having recently head to injured reserve. This could be a matchup that Mills could see an uptick in production in, as the Jags have allowed 273 passing yards per road game.
The Jaguars are only four-point road favorites in NFL Week 17 odds despite the five-win difference between the clubs.
San Francisco 49ers at Las Vegas Raiders
The 49ers are now 11-4 after a 37-20 win over the Commanders on Saturday and have clinched the NFC West crown. The Raiders suffered another close loss on Saturday night, dropping a 13-10 decision to the Steelers in Pittsburgh.
The 49ers continued rolling with Brock Purdy at quarterback versus Washington, and the young quarterback now draws an even better matchup with which to continue sharpening up for the playoffs. Purdy has been especially lethal when targeting tight end George Kittle in the last two games, hitting him on 10 occasions overall, including for four touchdowns. With the Raiders allowing 244.3 passing yards per game and having given up a 78-764-6 line to tight ends specifically, this could be another favorable spot.
The Raiders are in danger of missing out on the postseason altogether after consecutive losses, but they’ll at least have the comfort of knowing they’ve forged a 4-2 record at home. Las Vegas appears to be brimming with discontent, however, with star back Josh Jacobs not holding back in comments made to reporters Monday about the Raiders’ latest collapse. The Niners have conceded an NFL-low 268 total yards per road game, however, so this could be quite the uphill battle for Derek Carr and his struggling, frustrated teammates.
The Niners are 5.5-point road favorites when looking at NFL Week 17 odds as the week begins.
New York Jets at Seattle Seahawks
The Jets continued to endanger their thin playoff hopes with an ugly 19-3 loss to the Jaguars on Thursday night that dropped their record to 7-8. The Seahawks fell to the Chiefs by a 24-10 score at Arrowhead on Saturday to also fall to 7-8 and make their postseason path that much harder.
The Jets appear set to get Mike White back from his rib injury, and just in time at that. Not only is their postseason fate on the line, but Zach Wilson also looked completely out of sorts again versus Jacksonville and was eventually replaced by Chris Streveler. The Seahawks do seemingly present the opportunity for the ground attack to keep the defense off balance, as Seattle is allowing 168.6 rushing yards per home contest.
Seattle had to make do without Tyler Lockett (hand) versus KC, but the star wideout reportedly has a fighting chance to make it back for this game. That would naturally do wonders for Geno Smith’s confidence and take a load off DK Metcalf, but the matchup against the Jets’ Sauce Gardner-led secondary will be tricky no matter who’s available.
Despite their struggles, the Jets are 2.5-point road favorites as the week starts.
Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers
The Vikings have already clinched the NFC North and kept themselves alive for the top seed in the NFC with another last-minute win in Week 16 over the Giants. The Packers stayed alive for a longshot NFC wild-card berth with an upset road win against the Dolphins on Sunday.
Minnesota squeaked by with a 61-yard game-winning field goal from Greg Joseph, and they’ll now push for a season sweep of Green Bay after having upended the Packers by a 23-7 score in Week 1. The Vikes won’t have a chance for the No. 1 seed if the Eagles have prevailed in the early window against the Saints, however, so it remains to be seen if they’d roll out their regulars for a full game in this spot.
The Packers have now won three straight as Aaron Rodgers and his young receivers get a chance to finally get extended playing time together. Christian Watson did suffer a hip injury in the first half versus Miami and is considered day-to-day for the moment after not playing in the second half, but if he can suit up, the momentum Green Bay’s air attack carries into the game could serve the Pack very well considering how vulnerable Minnesota’s secondary has been.
Despite the difference in the team’s records, the Packers are three-point home favorites for this must-win game.
Los Angeles Rams at Los Angeles Chargers
The Rams had a rare taste of bliss in what has largely been a miserable title-defense season, dismantling the Denver Broncos by a 51-14 score on Christmas Day. The Chargers were able to clinch a playoff berth with a 20-3 victory over the Colts on Monday night.
The Rams got a surprisingly sharp performance from Baker Mayfield in their Sunday win, as the frequently embattled 2018 first overall pick threw only four incompletions on 28 attempts while also tossing a pair of touchdowns. Meanwhile, Cam Akers rushed for three touchdowns and 118 yards, and the Tyler Higbee continued to make for a rare scoring drought that lasted most the season by notching his second and third touchdowns in the last two games.
The Bolts got a relatively pedestrian 235-yard effort from Justin Herbert on Monday night, but Austin Ekeler’s two rushing TDs and Keenan Allen’s 11-104 line on a whopping 14 targets helped Los Angeles to the playoff-clinching win. L.A. will continue to play for seeding in this spot and will look to take advantage of a Rams secondary that’s had plenty of trouble slowing opposing air attacks on the road with 261.3 passing yards per contest surrendered in that split.
In the immediate aftermath of L.A.’s Monday night victory, the Bolts are 6.5-point home favorites.
Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens
The Steelers, perhaps buoyed in part by the opportunity to honor the memory of Franco Harris, put together a spirited comeback win over the Raiders on Christmas Eve to move to 7-8. The Ravens got to double-digit wins yet again with a tough winter win over the Falcons on Saturday afternoon, the third straight game they played without Lamar Jackson (knee).
Kenny Pickett had another breakthrough moment in his rookie season Saturday, as he capped off the game-winning drive with a laser of a touchdown pass to George Pickens. The air attack could well be the focal point in this matchup, as Baltimore has been a proverbial brick wall against the run with only 87.5 rushing yards per game surrendered. Conversely, Baltimore has surrendered 239.5 passing yards per contest, not an elevated figure per se, but one that does offer hope for some success for Pittsburgh’s passing game.
There’s hope Jackson can suit up for this contest, with the star quarterback reportedly ready to resume “football-related movements” early in the practice week. A return would naturally give Baltimore’s offense a sizable boot, as backup Tyler Huntley hasn’t thrown for more than 187 yards in any of his four games, and he’s been at 138 or less in the last three. The Steelers pass defense has tightened up considerably in recent games as well, surrendering a league-low 141.7 passing yards per contest in the last three.
Despite the possibility of a Jackson return, the Steelers are just three-point road underdogs.
Buffalo Bills at Cincinnati Bengals
The Bills went into frigid Soldier Field and handled their business in a 35-13 win over the Bears to keep pace in their bid for the No. 1 seed in the AFC. The Bengals got their 11th win with a tough road victory against the Patriots on Saturday afternoon as well, their seventh consecutive triumph.
Josh Allen and his side of the ball have slowed down some as the weather has worsened, but they naturally still have every bit of the upside they always carry with all the key pieces healthy. Buffalo’s matchup in this spot is difficult, as the Bengals are surrendering an AFC-low 296.7 total yards per home game. Additionally, if the Steelers have managed to trip up the Ravens 24 hours before this game kicks off, Cincinnati will know all it needs is a win to clinch the AFC North crown.
On the other side, Joe Burrow and company have just as much of a difficult assignment on paper. The Bills are yielding an AFC-low 291.2 total yards per road game, and just 307.7 per contest in the last three overall. Additionally, Buffalo’s ability to apply pressure (39 sacks) and Cincinnati’s 42 sacks allowed is a foreboding combination for Zac Taylor’s squad. Joe Mixon and Samaje Perine could therefore be counted on to help keep the Bills’ defense honest, but Buffalo has also been very tough against the run on the road (90.3).
In a game that should hold a significant amount of getting interest, the Bills are 1-to-1.5-point road favorites in NFL Week 17 odds.
Dallas Cowboys -13.5 at Tennessee Titans
The Cowboys took care of business Thursday night, earning a 27-13 road win while covering a -13.5 spread. The total went under 40.5.
