NFL Week 17 Betting Odds, Notable Matchups, TV Schedule By Christopher B. Watford for NoLuckNeeded.com
Itís the final week of football and things are already becoming chaotic. Numerous teams are in a win-and-in situation, meaning they need to win the final game of the season to get in to the playoffs. Things are still a little bit too chaotic to keep up with, so letís take a look at some of the notable matchups for this weekend.
Los Angeles Chargers (-6.5) @ Denver Broncos (+6.5) 12/31/18
Like many other teams, the Chargers are fighting to solidify their spot in the playoffs. While some teams are completely out of the running, the Chargers are hoping to get lucky and win one against the Broncos. In order to get a bye-week, the Chargers would have to beat the Broncos and the Raiders have to beat the Chiefs. Not very likely, but itís possible.
The Chargers have had a little bit of trouble with turnovers and sloppy play over the past couple weeks and they need to change it if theyíre hoping to make a deep playoff run. This game poses the possibility to be a blow out, with the Broncos ranked in the bottom 20 for both offense and defense.
If the Chargers can piece together some good plays and avoid turning the ball over, they might be able to beat Denver by more than a touchdown. Tune in to CBS this Sunday at 4:25 PM ET.
Can the Colts beat the Titans? Winner Goes to the Playoffs!
Chicago Bears (+4.5) @ Minnesota Vikings (-4.5) 12/31/18
The Vikings donít have as much at stake as the Bears do for this upcoming Sunday night matchup. Chicago is looking at getting an extra week of rest, but it comes with a couple of conditions. They have to beat Minnesota on Sunday and the 49ers have to pull off an upset against the Rams.
Even though the Bears have the better record, the odds are in Minnesota's favor. Itís possible that this is a matchup that we see again next week. Roquan Smith is coming off a hot game against the 49ers where he had 9 tackles and one sack. This game is likely to be a high scoring one, with both teams in top five for offense, but bottom 15 for defense.
Tune in to FOX this Sunday at 4:25 PM ET to see a possible preview of the playoffs.
Indianapolis Colts (-3.5) @ Tennessee Titans (+3.5) 12/31/18
In an incredibly important game, the Titans and the Colts will battle it out as conference rivals in search of a playoff spot. Lucky for the Colts, they have their secret weapon - Andrew Luck. Every single time that Luck has faced off against the Titans, heís won. Now is the time to show that he can keep this record up when it really matters.
The last time that the Colts faced off against the Titans, it didnít end pretty for Tennessee. They were outplayed in just about every single way and ended up losing 38-10. To make matters even worse for the Titans, theyíre missing a couple of key players going in to this win-or-done situation.
Watch two teams battle it out to keep their playoff chances alive this Sunday at 8:20 PM ET.
