NFL Underdog Pick Week 17|
December 30th 2017 -
Jacksonville Jaguars (+3.5) at Tennessee Titans
Week 17 is always challenging in picking NFL games. You have to understand
playoff scenarios, which players are resting/starting, team motivations, and the
coaching carousel. After processing all the player and team news for each game,
I really liked the Browns plus the 11 points but for obvious reasons, Kizer and
the Browns can not be trusted this year whatsoever. I can not bare to watch
myself lose another cover because of a red zone turnover or a sack strip fumble
return for a touchdown. So I've made my final decision and the team I like most
this week are the Jaguars.
‘We’re playing this game to win the game" was enough for me to hear this week in
regards to the Jaguars.
The Jaguars are playing to beat their division rivals who bested them 37-16
earlier in the season.
The Jaguars are playing to get the 49ers loss out of their system and get
momentum going into their wild card game next week.
The Jaguars don't really benefit in seeding if they win but the motivation is
there. If this was a week 12 game, I think the Jaguars would be favored by 3
points instead of being underdogs in this spot.
