NFL season win totals still up for grabs in Week 17

Dec 23, 2013 |
Plenty of NFL season win totals wagers are still up in the air heading into Week 17 of the schedule. While most of the league has either blown their win total out of the water or fallen well below expectations, seven teams still have one more game to decide their season win total finish.

Here’s a look at those seven teams and their Week 17 situations:

Baltimore Ravens (8-7 SU)

Season win total: 8.5

Week 17: The Ravens are currently outside looking in at the postseason picture and need a win over Cincinnati in their finale to not only stay in the playoff conversation but come through for bettors who banked on the Over 8.5 wins.

Buffalo Bills (6-9 SU)

Season win total: 6.5

The Bills aren’t going to the postseason but have a taste for playing spoiler after throwing a wrench in Miami’s playoff plans Sunday. Buffalo is in New England, facing a Patriots team looking to lock down home field and top their respective win total as well.

New England Patriots (11-4 SU)

Season win total: 11.5

Week 17: The Patriots don’t want to go to Denver for the AFC Championship Game. That’s what Week 17 is all about. New England owns the tie breaker with the Broncos due to their amazing comeback win at home in Week 12 and would need some help from Oakland to earn the No. 1 seed.

Chicago Bears (8-7 SU)

Season win total: 8.5

Week 17: Chicago plays Green Bay for the NFC North title in Week 17. That’s enough motivation. The Bears laid an egg versus the Eagles and may have to compete with the return of Aaron Rodgers in Week 17.

Dallas Cowboys (8-7 SU)

Season win total: 8.5

Week 17: Much like the NFC North, the Cowboys and Eagles battle for a division title in Week 17. Dallas stayed alive with a last-minute win over Washington but haven’t been sharp in these win-and-in games, losing the NFC East title in the final game the past two seasons.

Detroit Lions (7-8 SU)

Season win total: 7.5

Week 17:  An overtime loss to New York dashed Detroit’s postseason plans and could all but doomed Lions head coach Jim Schwartz. Detroit faces Minnesota in the “Who Gives A Crap” Bowl Sunday and will likely be without WR Calvin Johnson, who nursing a knee injury.

Jacksonville Jaguars (4-11 SU)

Season win total: 5

Week 17: The Jaguars face the Colts, who still have an outside shot at taking the second seed in the AFC. Jacksonville has played well down the stretch – which isn’t hard when looking at its first eight games – but the time to tank is now.
