Week 17 NFL Picks Against the Spread (Beazley)

Every week, four of our contributors pick between two and five games each and assign a number of units (one to five) to their selection based on their confidence in the pick.

With that said, here are Sean Beazley's Week 17 NFL picks against the spread:

Pittsburgh Steelers -6.5 over Cleveland Browns (4 units)

Let’s face it, the Steelers have no chance to wrap up home-field advantage throughout the playoffs because there is no way the Jets beat New England. The No. 2 seed is locked up, so I could see a bunch of people resting here. That being said, they will still hammer the Browns at home. Tomlin will want momentum heading into the playoffs. Steelers 30, Browns 17.

New England Patriots -15 over New York Jets (4 units)

This game won’t be close. I believe the Pats will have this covered by mid way through the 2nd quarter. I love Tom Brady this week for DFS as well. I think he has sneaky massive upside. Pats 44, Jets 16.

Tennessee Titans -2.5 over Jacksonville Jaguars (3 units)

As a Titans fan, a loss here would not be so bad. The team would collapse in missing the playoffs, and it could likely be the end of the Mike Mularkey era, which would be a godsend. With the amount of weapons this offense has, this team should not be struggling the way it is now. The loss of DeMarco Murray is huge, as it finally gives Derrick Henry a chance to shine. I think the Titans are able to pull this one off in an ugly low-scoring battle. Titans 17, Jags 13.
