Office Pool Picks: Week 17

December 30, 2017

It’s the final week of the NFL regular season and the final week for us to make our picks for Confidence Pool, Survivor and Against the Spread! Be sure to check out all of our Week 17 Office Pool Picks.

Here are my picks for this week ahead in the various polls:

16 Patriots vs. NYJ
15 Vikings vs. CHI
14 Saints at TB
13 Seahawks vs. ARI
12 Redskins at NYG
11 49ers at LAR
10 Chargers vs. OAK
09 Colts vs. HOU
08 Ravens vs. CIN
07 Lions vs. GB
06 Steelers vs. CLE
05 Chiefs at DEN
04 Titans vs. JAC
03 Panthers at ATL
02 Dolphins vs. BUF
01 Cowboys at PHI

Each week I’ll offer up my “playing it safe” and my “out on the limb” pick for your elimination pool:

Playing it safe – Patriots
The Patriots are at home to close out the regular season and with a win over the Jets they’ll stay there until the Super Bowl. I’m not sure I’d touch that spread that is more than two touchdowns, but straight up I’ll roll New England all day where I can use them.

Out on a limb – Redskins
I don’t like going with road teams in conference matchups. With nothing to play for both of the teams can tank. However, the Giants are so banged up I’m intrigued here. Look for Kirk Cousins, who’s likely headed for free agency, to finish on a high note.

AGAINST THE SPREAD (37-39-4 on season)

Pick of the Week
Panthers +3.5

Other Plays to Consider
Seahawks -9
Chiefs +3.5
Colts -4
Dolphins +3
