Welcome to Week 17, the final week of the 2019 regular season. We know the Cincinnati Bengals will pick No. 1 overall and we know the Baltimore Ravens hold the No. 1 seed in the AFC. Beyond that, there’s plenty still to be determined. We have two playoff spots left and a whole lot of positioning still possible.
This week we get the full 16-game schedule on Sunday, closing out with the Seattle Seahawks hosting the San Francisco 49ers on Sunday Night Football. It is arguably the most important game this week, with the game serving as the final determination of the No. 1 seed.
The rest of the schedule has plenty of importance, but it also brings with it the week when we see a whole lot of players sitting. Some playoff teams are resting starters to get ready for the playoffs. Some non-playoff teams have shelved many of their players on injured reserve. And with Black Monday just around the corner, there are plenty of questions surrounding motivation for teams. All of it will shake up the odds throughout the week.
We’re not going to bet on every single matchup on the card this week, but there are plenty of intriguing ones for us to consider. Our decisions will be influenced by injury news and depth chart changes, so we’re here to help you prepare for everything that will go down this week.
Check back for news updates as well as analysis and picks. We’ll have an odds rundown for each game and best bets to sufficiently prep you. Good luck with your wagering in Week 17!
