Seattle Seahawks (-450) vs. Arizona Cardinals (+325)

Seahawks

The Seattle Seahawks’ playoff hopes are still alive heading into their home game against the Arizona Cardinals. The Seahawks, who enter the contest as -450 favorites, must defeat the Cardinals and need the Atlanta Falcons to lose to the Carolina Panthers in order to secure a NFC Wild-Card spot. The Seahawks are also 9½-point favorites against the Cards, who were eliminated from playoff contention. Seattle is 8-4 straight up in its last 12 games, but the Seahawks have posted as sad 1-4 record ATS in its last 5 home contests. Seattle will beat the Cards, but take Arizona on points.

Pick: Arizona Cardinals (+9½)

Buffalo Bills (-140) vs. Miami Dolphins (+120)

Bills

It’s do or die time for the Buffalo Bills, who need to defeat the Miami Dolphins on Sunday in order to keep their playoff hopes alive. Buffalo heads into the crucial matchup as -140 money line and -3-point spread favorites against the Dolphins. The bad news for the Bills going into their match against division rivals, is that the home team in this head-to-head contest has gone 6-2 SU and ATS. Buffalo is fortunate to be in this position, especially with the 25th-ranked run defense. Luckily, the Dolphins do not have much of a run game. Take the Bills to win and cover.

Pick: Buffalo Bills (-3)

Denver Broncos (-180) vs. Kansas City Chiefs (+160)

Chiefs

It’s been a season to forget for the Denver Broncos, who will host the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday afternoon. This contest has much more meaning for the Chiefs, who will look to win and get home-field advantage for the first round of the NFL playoffs. Denver heads into the contest as the 3-point favorites versus a Chiefs team that could drop to a Wild-Card spot with a loss. It’s been an up-and-down season for the Chiefs, but the club has still managed to post a 9-6 season and ATS record in 2017. The Chiefs should walk away with the victory and cover the spread at the same time.

Pick: Kansas City Chiefs (+3)

Pittsburgh Steelers (-580) vs. Cleveland Browns (+390)

Steelers

The Cleveland Browns can join the Detroit Lions as the only NFL teams to complete an NFL season 0-16. The Browns are heavy underdogs heading into their Week 17 matchup against the first-place Pittsburgh Steelers, who are 11-point favorites. The Browns are 0-16 SU and 1-14-1 ATS in their last 16 games versus division opponents. The Steelers will most likely rest some of their stars as the club prepares for the post-season. Pittsburgh is 7-8 ATS on the season and while 11 points may be a lot, let’s remember it’s the Cleveland Browns we’re talking about.

Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers (+11)
