Week 17 NFL Picks Against the Spread (Trifone)

Here are my Week 17 NFL picks against the spread:

Baltimore Ravens +6.5 (over Cincinnati Bengals)

I like Cincinnati to win this one, but a division game with a playoff spot on the line for Baltimore means I'll take the points here. The Ravens laid a total egg against the Patriots last week, but prior to that, played the great majority of their games close. I expect this one to be close as well.

Jacksonville Jaguars +10.5 (over Indianapolis Colts)

The Colts have not been the same team since losing Reggie Wayne. Whether or not his loss has been the reason for it, their last three losses have been total blowouts.

Jacksonville, on the other hand, is 4-3 over their last seven games, and their last two losses were by seven and four. The Jags have been much more competitive of late, and against a Colts team that has not looked like the same team that beat the Niners, Seahawks, and Broncos, I'll take the 11 points.

St. Louis Rams +11.5 (over Seattle Seahawks)

Seattle barely held off the Rams in St. Louis in their first match, and showed real vulnerability at home against the Cardinals last week. I know they have everything to play for this week, with the chance to lock up home field throughout, but that doesn't mean they're going to kill the Rams, who would accomplish an impressive 8-8 season in the best division in football with a win.

I still like Seattle to win, but I'm not expecting Jeff Fisher's Rams to just roll over. I'll take the dog to keep it close enough to cover here.
