The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are using their last opportunity to secure their first home cover of the season. The four-point home favorites against the Panthers in Caesars Sportsbook’s latest Week 17 NFL odds, with 11 of the 16 home teams this week favourites. Overall, the Bucs are 3-11-1 against the spread, which is the worst grade in the league. They’ve only covered their last 13 games once, so would it be wise to ditch Tom Brady’s Buccaneers again with your Week 17 NFL predictions? What NFL bets, NFL office pool picks, and NFL survivor picks should you place? All of the Week 17 NFL series are listed below, and SportsLine’s advanced computer model now has all the NFL betting advice and predictions you need to make the best Week 17 NFL picks.
The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, costs well over $7,000 for $100 players in the top-rated NFL selections since its inception. The model enters Week 17 of the 2022 NFL season with an incredible 158-113 run in the top-rated NFL selections going back to the 2017 season.
The model has also been in the top 10 direct NFL selections on NFLPickWatch in four of the last six years, defeating more than 94% of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that time. Everyone who follows him has risen a lot.
Now, he’s turned his attention to the most recent Week 17 NFL odds, locking the NFL picks for every NFL game. Go here to see each selection.
Best Week 17 NFL predictions
One of the model’s strongest Week 17 NFL picks was the Patriots (-2.5) closing the lead against the Dolphins at home. Miami regressed, losing four games in a row. The Dolphins may well be without quarterback Tua Tagovailoa on Sunday after they entered NFL’s concussion protocol following their loss to the Packers.
New England, meanwhile, are losing just 19.4 points per game this season, ranking fifth in the NFL. The Patriots are led by Matthew Judon, who is second in the league with 15.5 sacks. Josh Uche is also having a fantastic season for the Patriots, placing 10th with 11.5 sacks. SportsLine’s model predicts New England’s defense will keep the Dolphins on just 17 points and increase 2.67 sacks and 1.15 interceptions, helping the Patriots close the spread more than 60% of the time.

Best Week 17 NFL survivor selections
The Model’s Week 17 NFL qualifying pool picks say the Buccaneers should be avoided despite being favorites against the Panthers. Tampa Bay needed a late rally to escape with a win over Arizona last week, despite entering the game as the 7.5-point favorite. The Buccaneers struggle to get things done throughout the season and only cover the spread once in their last nine home games.
For survivor pool purposes they only need to win outright, but the model isn’t currently high on Tampa Bay’s credibility. Quarterback Tom Brady has made six interceptions in his last three games, creating a recipe for a weaker player to relieve sadness. Carolina is heading in the right direction, winning three of their last four games. The Panthers come from a sad win against Detroit last week, and the model believes they have a chance to suffer another defeat on Sunday. See which team you should choose here.
Best Week 17 NFL office pool picks
One of the strongest Week 17 NFL football pool picks from the model is the Lions beat the Bears. Chicago’s eight-game losing streak has the longest draw streak in franchise history, allowing at least 25 points in each game throughout the winning streak. Meanwhile, Detroit already boasts a top-five offense in points and yards, so this matchup will be one team’s strength against the other’s weakness.
Jared Goff is in the prime of his career as he has scored 12 goals against zero picks in his last seven games. He now faces a Bears defense that allows the last two opposing quarterbacks to score three goals each. Detroit has to win to keep playoff hopes alive, so Chicago has an incentive it doesn’t have. The model predicts that the Lions will win in 70% of the simulations. See what other teams to pick here.
