NFL ODDS, LINES, SPREAD: 2020 NFL WEEK 17 PICKS, PREDICTIONS FROM PROVEN MODEL
The SportsLine Projection Model, which has returned almost $7,900 on top-rated NFL Week 17 picks since its inception, picks every NFL game
The SportsLine Projection Model simulates every NFL game 10,000 times and is up almost $7,900 for $100 players on its top-rated NFL week 17 picks since its inception five-plus years ago.
It’s off to a strong 23-13 roll on top-rated NFL picks this season, returning well over $800. The model enters Week 17 on an incredible 119-77 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.
The model also ranked in the Top 10 on NFLPickWatch three of the past four years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 95 percent of CBS Sports office pool players three times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is WAY UP.
Now, the model has evaluated the latest odds from William Hill Sportsbook (don’t miss the latest NFL lines for every matchup this week on our NFL odds page), simulated every snap of Week 17 in the 2020 NFL season and the results are in.
We can tell you one of the model’s strongest Week 17 NFL picks is that the Ravens (-12.5) cover against the Panthers in well over 60 percent of simulations! Another one of its NFL predictions: The Saints (-6.5) cover against the Panthers almost 60 percent of the time. The model also says the Over (50) hits more than 50 percent of the time in that NFC South matchup.
The model has also made the call on who wins and covers every other NFL game this week and it is calling for a HUGE upset! You ABSOLUTELY need to see its NFL picks for every single game before locking in your own.
Here are the computer’s Week 17 NFL picks (posted Dec. 28). Simulations run every 15 minutes up to kickoff and are subject to change. SportsLine members can always get the latest projected scores on our NFL picksheet.
