Top NFL Betting Expert Picks For Week 17 (12/29/19)

27th December, 12:45

We had a great Week 16 which put my regular season total back to .500, which is about where we've hovered all year. The Patriots got the week off to a hot start by squeaking by with a seven-point win, meanwhile the Saints took care of business thanks to arguably the best connection in football. The Broncos made me regret trusting them, but I'm not sure why I thought any thing different would happen.

I'm here to break down each team's spot, as well as dive into my favorite spreads, totals, team totals, and even moneylines for this week of the NFL schedule. My goal is to find the right value for you to be able to make money. Vegas makes you really work to find the right picks, but I hope I can make things a little more clear for you each and every week.

Follow me on Twitter @sgjanik_6 to chat about football and my picks. I'm also on the Action App @sgjanik6 where I'll post all the picks below and more this season. While I'll certainly continue this through the playoffs, I'd just like to thank everyone who may have read this throughout the regular season. Sports betting is not an easy activity and as you've seen can be very stressful, but I hope you stayed responsible in your wagers and had a lot of fun in the process.

The Chiefs are on a five-game win streak and have outscored their opponents 136-48. Any questions about their defense have been answered, while Patrick Mahomes is also silencing whatever haters decided to peak their head out. On the other side, the Chargers have won just once in their last six efforts but aside from an outlying 45-10 win over Jacksonville in Week 14, this team is struggling. Over that six-game span, Philip Rivers has a 9/11 TD/Int, which is all that needs to be said about the state of the offense.

For some reason, the Chargers are more capable of scoring early on the road, as they average around 13 ppg in the first half, while Kansas City averages 17 ppg in the opening half this year. However, the Chiefs are going to want to put themselves in a position for a first-round bye by getting up early and often, so I'm going after the first-half total.
