Week 17 often can be a tough puzzle to solve in the NFL. Which teams that have clinched a playoff spot might fail to show up? Which teams that have clinched a losing season have already mentally begun their off-season? How important is getting the #5 seed or #3 seed compared to the #6 seed of #4 seed if a team has already clinched a playoff spot? Will a certain team already know their fate when they kick off in the 4:25 PM game due to what happened in a 1:00 PM game?
This and many other variables come into play when looking at the last game of the year. added to the difficulty this year is that multiple teams still playing for something do not have a legitimate NFL starting quarterback healthy enough to play. They are going to play their most important game of the year with what could be called a replacement player. Can these teams win by running the ball 70% of the time?
The other predicament we have is trying to play the money line parlays by avoiding any chance of going .500 and losing money. That basically means picking three different parlays, and we have been making hay by choosing parlays with odds of better than even money. There are 15 games with money lines this week, so in order to pick three parlays with better than even money odds, we had to dig deep and make selections in 2/3 of the games in order to get those parlays.
Since there will be little chance to find value in the playoff games, this will be our final week of parlays. They have done rather well with a return on investment of 50.82% through today. We are hoping to close out on a high note and keep that ROI over 50%.
