NFL Week 17 Look Ahead Lines And Betting Market Moves

NFL Week 16 Look Ahead Lines Add Insight From Bookmaker

Here is a weekly article I provide for TheLines with some insight into the betting market moves and advance look-ahead lines for NFL games including NFL Week 17.

The Westgate SuperBook in Las Vegas provides the advance look-ahead lines each week on Tuesday for the following weeks games, and the FanDuel Sportsbook in New Jersey has joined in to provide their advance look ahead lines on Wednesday.

In my article earlier this month at Forbes. I noted seven road favorites and for bettors to beware. Result – those favorites went 3-4 SU and 2-5 ATS. We cashed in on Dallas as a big home ‘Dog against the streaking Saints in the Cowboys 13-10 win. Then this past Sunday in Week 14, eight road favorites found tough times again as road favorites went 3-5 SU/ATS. We cashed in on two of them with the Colts and Bears in our weekly Fairway’s Football Forecast, and even the Dolphins pulled off the Miami Miracle in their shocking and miraculous last play finish to stun the Patriots 34-33 and keep their own playoff and wild card hopes alive. That was until the Dolphins got buried by the Vikings 41-17 in Week 15, and the Seahawks lost in OT 26-23 at San Francisco (+4) to provide us a 2-0 week on our Week 15 underdog picks with Carolina (+6.5), who lost to New Orleans 12-9 for another home underdog cover. Home underdogs are 12-7-1 ATS the last three weeks.

Two Saturday games in Week 16 includes Washington at Tennessee, as the Titans (8-6) try to stay in the wild card chase into the final week as the the AFC South playoff race, continues with the Colts (8-6) and Texans (10-4) also pushing towards the playoffs. Baltimore (8-6) has a huge game at Los Angeles against the Chargers (11-3) with both teams having plenty to play for in the playoff and division chase and AFC playoff positioning.

Review the Week 16 market moves, along some monster bets from Week 15 including a bettor who failed to read my analysis and pick on the 49ers and instead bet on Seattle and lost $569,000 on his money line bets.

Evaluate the information and look ahead lines below, and note the adjustments for Week 17 following the completion of Week 16 games. And tune in Monday night Dec. 24 in the final home game in Oakland for the Raiders, who are a home underdog to rival Denver as the Broncos fail to reach their season win total again and play their final games for a lame duck head coach.

You can bet on it.
