NFL Week 17, New Year’s Weekend Bowl Games

The Week 17 NFL and College Football Picks Standings from the Gambling Chalk Talk Podcast Guys.

Guaranteed 4 NFL Picks from Coach Last Week 0-4, Season Record 33-28-2, 54%

Ravens +2.5 over Bengals – A game that means nothing unless you are a gambler. The Bengals have packed it in for most of the season never mind the last few weeks. The Bengals last stand was against the Steelers and they started hot and fell apart at the end and didn’t even cover. The same will happen in this one take the Ravens.

Giants +7 over Redskins – The Giants have had much success in the past playing hard in all 17 games regardless if the game had meaning or not for playoff qualification or seeding. As a Giants fan I hope this history continues as it has served them well, especially when they face the Patriots in the Super Bowl (Round 3 in 2017). The Giants also can knock out a hated rival in the process of the playoff tune up.

Buccaneers -6 over Panthers – The Bucs need a Magic Bullet Theory to make the playoff’s (listen to the podcast for that explanation). Even if the Bucs are eliminated from the post season the second half of the year has been a building block for this young team. The Panthers after making the Super Bowl have suffered from the mythical post Super Bowl Hangover this year and have tanked all season.

Seahawks -9.5 over 49ers – I have bet against the Niners and Browns all season with some very good success. The Niners want the season to end. The Seahawks have a bit of turmoil with Richard Sherman second guessing the coach but with a victory they have the possibility of securing a first round bye. The Seahawks will show up in this one and stick it to San fran.
