Make money from motivation in NFL Week 17


Make money from motivation in Week 17

Make money from motivation in NFL Week 17 | News Article by

The final week of the NFL regular season is one of the toughest challenges football bettors will face all year. You have a troublesome mix of teams playing for a playoff spot, looking ahead to the postseason, trying to finish on a strong note, and some clubs counting the days until they can get away from the football field.

Here are some nfl betting lines and ways to handicap those particular situations this Sunday and make money from motivation in Week 17:

Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles (+2.5)
If the line movement for this game is any indication – opened Eagles -1 and moved to +2.5 – Philadelphia will likely take it easy in Week 17. Philadelphia has the No. 1 seed in the NFC wrapped up, and while it could probably use the game time to work Nick Foles into the offense, after he struggled in Week 16, the Eagles will be playing it safe – as to not lose their second-string QB to injury as well.

On the other side of the field, the Cowboys are out of the playoffs following a disappointing loss to Seattle in Week 16. Dallas will want to take a look at some of its second and third string players as well as any upcoming free agents, in order to better prepare them for the 2018 season. If the starters do play, it will be in limited capacity. This one will very much feel like a preseason game in December.

Carolina Panthers at Atlanta Falcons (-4)
The scenario is straight forward for the Falcons: win and you’re in. Atlanta is on the cusp of a postseason spot but needs to knock off its divisional rival in order to claim a Wild Card spot in the NFC. The Falcons will be scoreboard watching in this one, as well. Should they lose to Carolina, a loss by the Seahawks to the Cardinals (playing at the same time) would also bump Atlanta into the postseason. After looking like the Falcons of last year for a couple weeks, the offense has once again diminished. They’re putting up just 16.5 points per game over their last four outings.

The Panthers have some motivation in this one as well. Carolina is already in the playoffs but can jump as high as the No. 2 seed in the conference should Minnesota, New Orleans and the L.A. Rams all lose. That’s a long-shot scenario, but a victory over Atlanta and a Saints’ loss to Tampa Bay would given the Panthers the NFC South crown and a smoother ride to the NFC Championship Game.

Cincinnati Bengals at Baltimore Ravens (-10)
The Ravens are in must-win mode for Week 17, needing a victory over the rival Bengals to secure a spot in the postseason. Baltimore is giving 10 points to the Bengals, who have very little to play for – and even pride may be a stretch for this team that has been rumored to be moving on from head coach Marvin Lewis this offseason. A Titans or Bills loss would also get the Ravens into the tournament.

Cincinnati threw a wrench in the NFC postseason picture with a win over the Lions in Week 16, so it could relish the role of spoiler here – especially against a divisional foe. The Bengals might be another team planning of the future in Week 17. With Lewis likely out, Cincy will take a good long look at every player on the roster and bettors shouldn’t be surprised to see some second and third stringers get time should this score get out of hand.
