After a unique Christmas schedule last week, the NFL has just two weeks left in the Regular Season. This week, all 32 teams are again in action but only two games are not on Sunday leaving 13 games on DraftKings main slate Sunday afternoon and one game on Sunday Night Football.

The week kicks off with a Thursday Night Football matchup between Joe Flacco’s Cleveland Browns and one of his former teams the New York Jets. On Saturday night, the Lions and Cowboys meet in a juicy possible playoff preview in Dallas. The Sunday afternoon action will be frenetic with 10 games kicking off at 1:00 p.m. ET and three more joining in the second wave to wrap up the afternoon. The Sunday night matchup is an important NFC North matchup between the Packers and Vikings as both teams try to hold on to fading playoff hopes.

Each week to help you find the stats and trends that matter, I’ve been posting the relevant info for every matchup from DraftKings Sportsbook. You can use these numbers to fill out your Week 17 betting card or to build an awesome parlay.

All odds are provided by DraftKings Sportsbook and all odds are subject to change.



New York Jets at Cleveland Browns

Betting Trends

The Browns are in an excellent playoff position and can clinch a trip to the postseason with a win on Thursday Night at home against the Jets. They are 6-2 SU/ATS in their last eight games and 5-0 ATS in their last five games at home. The Browns are also 7-0 SU/6-1 ATS in their last seven games as the favorite; however, they are only 1-4 ATS in their last five games at home against the Jets. The Jets season has trended in the opposite direction over the last eight weeks, as they have gone 2-6 SU/1-7 ATS in their last eight games. They are only 2-9 SU/2-8-1 ATS in their last 11 road games, but they have gone 7-2 SU/ATS in their last nine games against the Browns. The under is 14-6 in the Jets’ last 20 games, but the over is 4-1 in the Browns’ last five.


Detroit Lions at Dallas Cowboys

The Lions clinched their first-ever NFC North title last week, and the Cowboys have also wrapped up a spot in the postseason. Seeding is still very uncertain for both teams, though, so they’ll be looking to get an important win on Saturday night in Dallas. The Lions are 19-6 ATS in their last 25 games, 10-3 ATS in their last 13 road games and 7-1 ATS in their last eight as the underdog. While the Lions have been excellent lately, the Cowboys have dominated recent head-to-head meetings winning five straight SU and going 4-2 ATS in their last six meetings. The Cowboys have also won 15 straight home games, going 12-3 ATS. They are fairly locked in as the No. 5 seed after dropping back-to-back road games and will hope to get back on track at home. The under is 4-2 in the Cowboys’ last six games, but the over is 6-1 in the Lions’ last seven games, 4-1 in their last five road games and 9-2 in their last 11 vs. the NFC East.

Both the Dolphins and Ravens got huge wins last weekend against quality opponents, and now they’re set to meet in the flashiest early game of the week. These two teams are the most likely teams to get the No. 1 seed in the AFC and earn a bye in the first round. The Dolphins are just 3-8 SU/2-9 ATS in their last 11 against the Ravens and 1-8 SU in their last nine games as the underdogs. However, they are 13-5 ATS in their last 18 games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 vs. the AFC. The Ravens are 5-0 SU/4-1 ATS in their last five games, and they are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 games. The over is 11-4 in the Dolphins’ last 15 road games and 4-1 in their last five trips to Baltimore. The over is also 6-3 in the Ravens’ last nine games and 4-1 in their last five home games.

The Broncos’ playoff pictures took a huge hit last week when they lost on Sunday Night Football to the Patriots, but they are still mathematically alive. They’ll need to beat the Chargers at home in a rematch of their Week 14 matchup in Los Angeles, which was won by the Broncos, 24-7. The Chargers are just 1-6 SU/2-6 ATS in their last seven games and 1-9 SU in their last 10 trips to Denver. The Broncos are 6-3 SU in their last nine games against the Chargers and 6-3 SU in their last nine games overall. However, the Broncos are just 3-14-1 ATS in their last 18 games as the favorite. The under is 5-1 in the Chargers’ last six road games and 10-3 in their last 13 overall. The under is also 7-3 in the Broncos’ last 10 games and 8-4 in their last 12 games against the Chargers.

The Sunday Night Football game is basically a “loser goes home” matchup between these two NFC North rivals. Even though the Lions have won the division, both teams are alive in the playoff hunt but cannot afford to lose this game. The Packers won on the road in Carolina last week and are 4-2 SU in their last six games and 17-2 SU in their last 19 games played in December. However, they are only 1-5 ATS in their last six road games, 4-8 ATS in their last 12 games overall, and 2-4 SU/2-4 ATS in their last six games against Minnesota. The Vikings lost at home to the Lions last week and are just 2-8 ATS in their last 10 home games. They are just 1-4 SU in their last five games, but they have gone 6-2 ATS in their last eight games vs. the NFC. The over is 11-2 in the Vikings’ last 13 games in December, 8-3 in the Packers’ last 11 road games and 5-2 in the last seven meetings between these teams. The under is 9-4 in the Vikings’ last 13 games and 7-2 in the last nine games these two teams have played in Minnesota.
