Some games wer are looking at with selections for week # 17.
Miami Dolphins at Tennessee (-3.5).
This is Ryan Tannehill’s first start against his former team. The Miami Dolphins have won 7 staright but look at the teams they’ve beaten and quatrsbacks they’ve faced nothing to right home about. The Titans should be well rested coming off the 10 day R&R after beating the 49ers last Thursday.
The streak ends today for Miami versus Ryan Tannehill and the No. 2 seed in the AFC.
Take: Tennessee (-3.5)
Game 2 that makes our ticket is Tampa Bay Buccaneers at New York Jets Tampa Bay is (-13.5) in this one.
Tampa Bay has six victories by 13 points or more and five wins by at least 20 points. The Jets are 3-10 against the spread when facing teams that enter Week 17 with more than four wins.
Brady can with this one on the ground as this jet’s defense can’t stop the run allowing 141.3 yards per game on the ground and if they get lucky enough to find a front 5 that can contain the run just remember Brady has Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski that have been known to catch a ball or two in their days.
Take: Tampa Bay (-13.5)
Our third and final game will be the Los Angeles Rams at Baltimore Ravens LA Rams are the favorite in this one (-3.5).Matthew Stafford has been on fire tossing the football. Can the Ravens D stop him from throwing for 350+ today?
The Ravens gave up over 525 yards to Joe Burrow, this may become another pitch and toss against the Ravens secondary. Rams are on a roll having played like the best team in the NFL over the last month with four straight wins and covers and have leapfrogged over the Cardinals to lead the NFC West.
Take: LA Rams (-3.5)
