2017 NFL Week 16 Predictions



Buffalo goes to New England. Last year the Bills didn't have to face Tom Brady in Gillette Stadium.





Chris Ransom Last Updated: December 21, 2017.



Indianapolis Colts 3-11-0
Versus
Baltimore Ravens 8-6-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Oren Shiri now has a five game lead at 149-75 after a 11-5 week. Jason Bantle went 12-4 in week 15 putting him at 144-80. Jesse Lucas is 142-82 after a 12-4 week 15. I went 12-4 in week 15 and am at 140-84 on the year. Tanya Holmes is 138-86.




Why the Indianapolis Colts Will Win: I just don't see the Colts having a chance. This team has dealt with injuries with losses like Andrew Luck and Malik Hooker. The Colts are just a mess right now.


Why the Baltimore Ravens Will Win: Baltimore is fighting for a playoff spot. They got their final two games at home against the Colts and Bengals. Baltimore won't get past the wild card round, but they are a strong candidate to get one of those final two wild card spots as well as a strong candidate that people will bet on simply due to the fact that they will end the year on a three game winning streak along witht he fact that the defense is lethal.


Prediction: Baltimore enters as a 13.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $700 dollars, the maximum bet is $1,000 dollars with the average gambler betting around $850 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 41.5 points. I like Baltimore to win and cover with the under.


Final Score Ravens 27 Colts 13

Why the Minnesota Vikings Will Win: Minnesota can lock up a first round bye with a win. They don't have to face Aaron Rodgers.


Why the Green Bay Packers Will Win: Green Bay has put Aaron Rodgers on injured reserve after being eliminated from the playoffs. They may keep this close, but I expect Minnesota to win.


Prediction: Minnesota enters as a 9 point favorite. The minimum bet is $125 dollars, the maximum bet is $145 dollars with the average gambler betting around $135 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43 points. I like Minnesota to win and cover with the under.

Versus

Chris Ransom's Pick


We have a brand new 2018 NFL Draft Game where you can draft up to 200 different players. We added 10 more players to get the game up from 190 players to 200 players and adjusted the top 8 picks. We've also adjusted that order from 1-190 and are sending another updated draft board to one of our partners in Fanspeak for December next week.

We now have draft games up for all of the pro sports.


Why the Detroit Lions Will Win: Matthew Stafford should carve this secondary. Detroit is focused on the task ahead.


Why the Cincinnati Bengals Will Win: Cincinnati is a team divided right now. I'm not picking them to win the rest of the year.


Prediction: Detroit enters as a 5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $200 dollars, the maximum bet is $240 dollars with the average gambler betting around $220 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 43 points. I like Detroit to win and cover with the over.

Why the Miami Dolphins Will Win: Miami heads to Kansas City. Their season is over.


Why the Kansas City Chiefs Will Win: Kansas City is clicking with Kareem Hunt. As long as Hunt runs the ball Kansas City will win.


Prediction: Kansas City enters as a 10 point favorite. The minimum bet is $400 dollars, the maximum bet is $500 dollars with the average gambler betting around $450 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 44 points. I like Kansas City to win and cover with the over.

Buffalo Bills 8-6-0
Versus
New England Patriots 11-3-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I posted an 2018 MLB Transactions page recapping all the moves in MLB Free Agency. Check it out for daily updates.


Why the Buffalo Bills Will Win: Buffalo is determined to get revenge after the injuries that took place in New England. I expect them to give New England everything they got. This will be a war of attrition. Buffalo may do enough to win.


Why the New England Patriots Will Win: New England recaptured the AFC East once again. The Patriots have won the AFC East for the ninth year in a row and are fighting for home field for the third time in four years.


Prediction: New England enters as a 12.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $600 dollars, the maximum bet is $850 dollars with the average gambler betting around $725 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47 points. I like New England to win and Buffalo to cover with the over.

Cleveland Browns 0-14-0
Versus
Chicago Bears 4-10-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Joseph Potter, the co-host of my podcast also has his own channel on The Evolution Network. Subscribe, like, share, go into the chat room and troll Joey. Joey and I recapped the first week of Bowl games yesterday. Draft Outlook will be back in 2018.


Why the Cleveland Browns Will Win: This is Cleveland's last realistic chance to avoid an 0-16 season. They are going to keep this close with Chicago.


Why the Chicago Bears Will Win: Mitchell Trubisky grew up in Mentor, Ohio. This is a game I see him winning with him getting better throughout the year with his progressions.


Prediction: Chicago enters as a 6.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $250 dollars, the maximum bet is $300 dollars with the average gambler betting around $275 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 38.5 points. I like Chicago to win and Cleveland to cover with the under.


Final Score Bears 20 Browns 17

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 4-10-0
Versus
Carolina Panthers 10-4-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Tanya Holmes decided to set an NFL lineup for DraftKings once again. If you like any fantasy sports you can pay the $20 dollar entry fee and set a lineup today or you can go to Draft Kings and sign up with the promo code draftutopia for your 20 dollar discount and you can use that discount to play for free with Fantasy Football if you want to give that a try this week since you can win up to a million dollars. This weeks entry is $8 dollars for a west coast challenge.




Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win: Tampa Bay is heading to Carolina. I just can't see them winning this game with so many injuries along with Tampa Bay being eliminated from the playoffs.


Why the Carolina Panthers Will Win: Carolina is completely healthy for the first time since week 1. This team is a win away from clinching a playoff spot.


Prediction: Carolina enters as a 10 point favorite. The minimum bet is $400 dollars, the maximum bet is $500 dollars with the average gambler betting around $450 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 46.5 points. I like Carolina to win and cover with the under.


Final Score Panthers 27 Buccaneers 14

Atlanta Falcons 9-5-0
Versus
New Orleans Saints 10-4-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


You can go to Fanpicks and enter the Promo Code draftutopia to win $20 dollars. We also have a Draft Kings advertisement on our home page so you can go there to sign up for Fantasy Football as well.


Why the Atlanta Falcons Will Win: Expect this game to feature a lot more offense after a defensive outing in Atlanta. Matt Ryan struggled versus Tampa Bay. He should end up doing a lot better versus New Orleans. I'm curious to see if Freeman can build off of what he did versus Tampa Bay.


Why the New Orleans Saints Will Win: New Orleans got embarrassed by Atlanta on Thursday Night Football after leading for most of the game. Atlanta is hot right now, but I feel like New Orleans wants this more knowing they can wrap up the NFC South DIvision.


Prediction: New Orleans enters as a 5.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $210 dollars, the maximum bet is $250 dollars with the average gambler betting around $230 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 53 points. I like New Orleans to win and Atlanta to cover with the over.


Final Score Saints 34 Falcons 31

Denver Broncos 5-9-0
Versus
Washington Redskins 6-8-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Our High School 2018 Prospects Page is updated. Lots of commitments for both football and basketball have been added.


Why the Denver Broncos Will Win: Denver and Washington are both out of the playoff picture. Denver ha a good defense and has won two in a row.


Why the Washington Redskins Will Win: Washington still has a chance to go 8-8 and salvage their season despite being out of the playoffs. This will be an interesting game.


Prediction: Washington enters as a 3.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $160 dollars, the maximum bet is $180 dollars with the average gambler betting around $170 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 41 points. I like Washington to win and cover with the over.

Los Angeles Rams 10-4-0
Versus
Tennessee Titans 8-6-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Check out Rams Showcase hosted by Joe Branham on Spreaker. Tonight they preview the Rams VS Titans. Here is an archive of their other episodes.


Listen to "Rams Showcase" on Spreaker.




Why the Los Angeles Rams Will Win: Los Angeles heads to Tennessee. Jared Goff and Todd Gurley can help the Rams secure the NFC West with a win


Why the Tennessee Titans Will Win: Marcus Mariota needs to get out of this funk he's in. Otherwise Tennessee will miss out on a wild card spot.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 6.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $250 dollars, the maximum bet is $300 dollars with the average gambler betting around $275 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 48.5 points. I like Tennessee to win and cover with the over.

Los Angeles Chargers 7-7-0
Versus
New York Jets 5-9-0


Chris Ransom's Pick



My friend Luis Tirado Jr. has some fantastic content over at The Jet Press. Check them out for more information on the Jets in 2017.


Why the Los Angeles Chargers Will Win: The Chargers need to win this game in order to avoid elimination. That's why I think they take care of business versus the New York Jets.


Why the New York Jets Will Win: New York has nothing to play for in this game. They have already been eliminated.


Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 7 point favorite. The minimum bet is $280 dollars, the maximum bet is $340 dollars with the average gambler betting around $310 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 42.5 points. I like Los Angeles to win and cover with the over.

Jacksonville Jaguars 10-4-0
Versus
San Francisco 49ers 4-10-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Draft Utopia has a playlist with prospects we've interviewed on our Youtube channel. If there is a certain prospect you want us to reach out to use the hashtag #ProspectRequest on twitter. Let's make that a trend. Here is our playlist though.




Why the Jacksonville Jaguars Will Win: I expect this game to be a shootout. Jacksonville has the leagues best defense, but Jimmy Garoppolo has dominated since becoming the starter.


Why the San Francisco 49ers Will Win: Jimmy Garoppolo is 5-0 as a starter in his career. It's at the point where picking him to lose is foolish.


Prediction: Jacksonville enters as a 4 point favorite. The minimum bet is $170 dollars, the maximum bet is $210 dollars with the average gambler betting around $190 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 42 points. I like Jacksonville to win and San Francisco to cover with the over.


Final Score Jaguars 38 49ers 35





Who Everyone Else Picked






Tanya Holmes Oren Shiri Jesse Lucas Jason Bantle



Seattle Seahawks 8-6-0
Versus
Dallas Cowboys 8-6-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


The Dallas Cowboys are now 37-26 under Bill Lumbergh. Lumbergh enters year four as the Dallas Cowboys GM with a 1-2 record in the Playoffs after winning a playoff game in his first year as a GM.




Here is this weeks advice from Bill Lumbergh.

Hey Dak Prescott. What's happening? If you can beat the Seahawks to keep us in the hunt that would be great. Both teams are 8-6 and we need to win this week or we're out. If you can do that and find some way to help the Saints win over Atlanta that would be terrific.


Why the Seattle Seahawks Will Win: Seattle does not have their two key players on the Legion OF Boom. Russell Wilson is playing like an MVP candidate though.


Why the Dallas Cowboys Will Win: Dallas gets Ezekiel Elliott back on Christmas Eve. Something tells me Dallas wins this game.


Prediction: Dallas enters as a 5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $200 dollars, the maximum bet is $240 dollars with the average gambler betting around $220 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5 points. I think Dallas wins and covers with the under.


Final Score Cowboys 28 Seahawks 12





Who Everyone Else Picked






Tanya Holmes Oren Shiri Jesse Lucas Jason Bantle


New York Giants 2-12-0
Versus
Arizona Cardinals 6-8-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


All ten teams in the BFFL League have team logos. I'll use this section to rank where the 10 teams stand on Yahoo.



  1. Brees Nutz 12-3

    Mitch Pabst owner of Brees Nutz had the best draft in my opinion. This team is stacked and Mitch even told me he lost to Anti Bantle on purpose with all of his players on a bye week. This team led by Drew Brees and Ezekiel Elliott won a playoff game without Elliott meaning they get Elliott back for the Championship game. Even if they lose Ezekiel Elliott this team can use a third round keeper on Todd Gurley, a fifteenth round keeper on Adam Thielen, and a seventeenth round keeper on Alvin Kamara. Passing on Thielen for Britt was easily my worst fantasy blunder in 2017. Mitch should use keepers on Thielen and Kamara and reload next season by taking the best player on the board.





  2. Avengers 12-3

    Avengers is 12-3 now. Gary Bantle is only one win away from his first Bantle Bowl the last two years saw Jimmy Dicken and the league commissioner Jason Bantle in the Bantle Bowl. Their owner may leave the league after this season. The good news is if someone replaces them that owner will be able to use a first round keeper on Le'Veon Bell and an eleventh round keeper on Kareem Hunt. That alone makes Avengers a very attractive team to take over if Gary decides to leave the league and nobody in this league should be able to take over for a team this good if that's what Gary wants to do. I say if we get a new owner that person should have the right to use keepers on Bell and Hunt. If this is Avengers last year in the league I hope they go out in style and win the league. If Avengers decides to come back for one more season in 2018 they will have a very good team with arguably the leagues best running back tandem next season.





  3. Anti Bantle 11-4

    Anti Bantle won the league three years ago and he will have to wait another year. It's possible that Anti Bantle goes through a rebuild like I did in 2018. Anti Bantle will lose Antonio Brown and Tom Brady next year most likely which is why its win or potentially go through a rebuild if they don't win the league title this season. They can use a second round keeper on Rob Gronkowski and a third round keeper on Russell Wilson after this season.





  4. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes 10-5

    H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes has clinched the playoffs. This team lost in the playoffs with Carson Wentz on IR. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes can use a third round keeper on DeAndre Hopkins, a fifth round keeper on Keenan Allen, or an eighth round keeper on Carson Wentz. Heath has a lot of options even if he doesn't go all the way this season and should be back in contention as one of the favorites in 2018.





  5. Gangster Squad 7-7

    My team is now eliminated. I can use a keeper on two players next season with Jared Goff my fourteenth round pick being a player I'll probably end up putting a fourteenth round keeper on. I'll probably keep my first two picks and use a third round keeper on Leonard Fournette and risk losing Melvin Gordon knowing I can probably get him at 6. I'm also considering taking Tom Brady in 2018 in the first round since Anti Bantle used his other keeper on him in 2017 and it's a two quarterback league. Keeping Goff and drafting Brady means I can ignore need and take the best player on the board early in the draft after that. Odell Beckham may be available at this spot too plus I may end up at 6. We'll wait and see how things play out.





  6. Team Mouserat 7-7

    I recruited Mark Sciubba to the league this year after a spot opened up. He began 5-4 before losing in week 10. With Tyrod Taylor getting benched, I have trouble seeing enough breaks go Mark's way to make the playoffs. He beat Breez Nuts the best team in the league at 9-1 and remained in contention until the final week of the regular season. I went 1-13 my first year in the league before turning things around at 11-3 next year. Mark and I are playing for the number five pick in the 2018 BFFL Draft this week. We're both going to do our best to avoid it. Mark may opt not to use his first round pick since he can use a first round keeper on Julio Jones next year, but doing this will cost him a chance at keeping LeSean McCoy. Since Mark is a Bills fan I intend on playing mind games with him over whether he opts to draft McCoy at 5 or use 5 to use a keeper on Julio Jones.





  7. The Chosen Ones 5-9

    Our league commissioner kept drafting quarterbacks that got injured like Andrew Luck and Ryan Tannehill. Even David Johnson got injured. The Chosen Ones managed to beat me by a point despite trailing by 40 points heading into Monday. This team lost in week 12 to drop to 4-8 and with the top 4 teams all having 8 wins in a 14 week season so they are eliminated from contention as well. Despite being eliminated they won to improve to 5-8. Jason will probably use his second round keeper on A.J. Green and if David Johnson is there at 4 again, I can see Bantle taking him in hopes of a comeback season in 2018. It's really too early to say.





  8. Car RamRod 3-11

    Andrew Kermish one of the co hosts from our podcast is 3-11 this season. They have the worst record so far and are eliminated from playoff contention at this point. I'm expecting Kerm to use a second round keeper on Amari Cooper like he did two years ago as well as a fourth round keeper on Mark Ingram. Kerm used keepers on both of those players back in 2016 and since he drafted both players without using keepers on them in 2017 Kerm can basically stash Cooper and Ingram like he's running a dynasty league by using keepers on them again two years later in 2018. I'm almost certain that Car RamRod will take Ezekiel Elliott third overall if he's available next season assuming Taco Corp doesn't take him second overall. Kerm is a huge Cowboys fan and we'll have to see how the board plays out. If Andrew Kermish's draft plays out like that he could be one of next years big risers.





  9. Taco Corp 3-11

    Taco Corp won their opener. It doesn't help that Odell Beckham Jr. the player they used a first round keeper on is out for the year. Taco Corp was eliminated after a 2-8 start since each of the top 4 teams has at least 7 wins and only 4 teams make the playoffs. They finished 3-11. Taco Corp can use a fifth round keeper on Philip Rivers to give their team some stability at quarterback. A ninth round keeper on Zach Ertz and a fourth round keeper on Joe Mixon are both strong options as well.





  10. TD Sprinkles 2-12

    Its like Flow from Progressive says "Sorry Jimmy Sprinkles are for winners." They are out of the playoffs as well. The good news is if Jimmy gets the top pick he can use keepers on Jordan Howard and Dalvin Cook at running back or perhaps Winston at quarterback. The toughest decision they make involves deciding whether to use a first round keeper on Aaron Rodgers or take Antonio Brown who Anti Bantle used a first round keeper on.






Why the New York Giants Will Win: Neither one of these teams is in contention for a playoff spot. It's Eli Manning versus Blaine Gabbert. I'm sort of leaning with Eli Manning in an upset. Eli won his first Super Bowl in this stadium and its very possible that this may be his final road game with the New York Giants.


Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Win: Arizona hosts the Giants. They are favored, but both teams are out of the playoffs.


Prediction: Arizona enters as a 3.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is 165 dollars, the maximum bet is $185 dollars with the average gambler betting around $175 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 40 points. I think New York wins and covers with the under.

Versus
Houston Texans 4-10-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I just cannot stand ESPN's Monday Night Football Coverage. Monday Night Football On KDKA is back with Bob Pompieni, Mark Madden, and Andrew Filiponi. Tonight the gang is in Houston.


Pompieni: Welcome to Monday Night Football. Bob Pompieni along with Mark Madden and Andrew Filiponi covering ESPN Monday Night Football on KDKA at NRG Stadium. Mark what are your thoughts on this game?

Madden: Houston has more injuries than any team in the league. Pittsburgh will win this game. T.J. Watt will troll his older brother and Houston has no chance.

Filiponi: If you keep reminding the Texans how miserable they are, Santa may put you on his naughty list.

Pompieni: Yeah Mark, you're already on Santa's naughty list. Tonights game is brought to you by NRG.

Madden: Tonights game is sponsored by the Houston Astros. They only won the World Series due to Hurricane Harvey and all sports are rigged.

Pompieni: Alright tonights game is brought to you by NRG and the Houston Astros. We'll be back with kickoff after these commercial messages.



Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Will Win: Pittsburgh should win a defensive contest. I originally had Pittsburgh winning 24-13. I docked each team a touchdown with Brown out for Pittsburgh and Houston being banged up with injuries.


Why the Houston Texans Will Win: Houston is going to lose this game. They don't have the star power to match with Pittsburgh.


Prediction: Pittsburgh enters as a 9.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $350 dollars, the maximum bet is $450 dollars with the average gambler betting around $400 dollars on this game. I think Pittsburgh wins and covers with the under.

Versus
Philadelphia Eagles 12-2-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I just cannot stand ESPN's Monday Night Football Coverage. Monday Night Football On KDKA is back with Bob Pompieni, Mark Madden, and Andrew Filiponi. Tonight the gang is in Philadelphia.


Pompieni: Welcome to Monday Night Football. Bob Pompieni along with Mark Madden and Andrew Filiponi covering ESPN Monday Night Football on KDKA at Lincoln Financial Field. Mark what are your thoughts on this game?

Madden: I hate both of these teams. With Carson Wentz out I like the Raiders.

Filiponi: Pretty certain the 12-2 Eagles lock up home field in the NFC with a win.

Pompieni: Yeah Filiponi, Eagles lock up home field with a win. Tonights game is brought to you by Lincoln Financial Field.

Madden: Tonights game is sponsored by the Philadelphia Flyers. Fuck the flyers.

Pompieni: Alright tonights game is brought to you by Lincoln Financial Field and the Philadelphia Flyers. We'll be back with kickoff after these commercial messages.



Why the Oakland Raiders Will Win: Derek Carr faces the Eagles. Oakland is out of the playoff picture and Philadelphia gets homefield in the NFC with a win. Oakland will keep this game close though.


Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win: Nick Foles can help the Eagles lock up home field with a win. This game has much bigger implications for the Eagles than it does for the Raiders.


Prediction: Philadelphia enters as a 9 point favorite. The minimum bet is $330 dollars, the maximum bet is $400 dollars with the average gambler betting around $365 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47.5 points. I like Philadelphia to win and Oakland to cover with the over.
