NFL Week 17 Line Moves

After weeks of few games with big line movements, this week half of the games on the board had a line movement of at least one full point.

 

Week 17 is challenging for bookmakers and bettors alike as playoff teams tend to mask their plans on how much their starters will play or rest.

Here’s a look at the biggest NFL line moves in Week 17. And our preview on Week 17 predictions and links to the NFL playoff picture as well.

Detroit @ Green Bay (from +1.5 to +3.5 at TopBet)

With home field throughout the playoffs secured, the perfect season over, and Detroit having already clinched a playoff spot, the Green Bay Packers have nothing to play for. With a win, Detroit could secure the five-seed and a more favorable Wild Card matchup against Dallas or New York instead of New Orleans or San Francisco. These factors have led to most bettors siding with Detroit in this matchup.

Tennessee @ Houston (from +1.0 to +3.0 at BetOnline)

With last week’s loss to Indianapolis, the Texans fell out of contention for a first-round bye and will finish with the AFC’s third seed no matter how Sunday’s action unfolds. Tennessee needs a lot of help, but the Titans are still mathematically alive for a playoff spot, making them a popular pick against this Houston team that has already been hit hard by injuries and will likely rest key players.

Carolina @ New Orleans (from -10.0 to -8.0 at Bovada)

Despite the fact that New Orleans is 7-0 SU and ATS in its last seven games and in seven home games this year, early bettors hopped on Carolina with the points. The Panthers are 4-1 SU and ATS in their last five games, and are 8-2 ATS in their last 10 games against the Saints (5-5 SU). New Orleans can still earn a first-round bye with a win and a San Francisco loss.

Indianapolis @ Jacksonville (from -5.0 to -3.5 at 5Dimes)

After going 0-11 SU and 2-9 ATS through their first 11 games, the Indianapolis Colts are 4-0 ATS in their last four games and 2-0 SU in their last two. The defense has allowed just 14.5 points per game over the Colts’ last two wins, and bettors seem to like Indianapolis with the points to at least keep it close against the Jaguars, who are averaging just 14.9 points per game on offense.

Other games with a line movement of at least one full point include Chicago @ Minnesota (from +1.0 to -1.0), Buffalo @ New England (from -13.0 to -11.5), Tampa Bay @ Atlanta (from -10.5 to -12.0), and Baltimore @ Cincinnati (from +3.0 to +2.0), all at TopBet.
