Bookies Fight contestants are wanting to get advantage of groups whose starting quarterbacks are sidelined in Week 17 of the NFL time, as four of the top five consensus picks suit that angle.

The outlier of that group — the Colts —  are fortunate to have avoided that scenario, as Carson Wentz exited COVID protocols Sunday morning. Nonetheless, Raiders +7.5 drew the sentiment of 88.9% of the contest area, tying Las Vegas as the most common play.

Chargers +5 (vs. Broncos) garnered that same proportion, as Los Angeles welcomes a Denver crew trotting out Drew Lock in place of concussed Teddy Bridgewater for a 2nd consecutive 7 days.

The least expensive hanging fruit in the contest this week is Inexperienced Bay -6 (vs. Vikings). With QB Kirk Cousins out thanks to COVID, the position spread for Sunday night’s match at frigid Lambeau Field skyrocketed to -13. Sean Mannion gets the nod at QB for Minnesota.

In Baltimore, Lamar Jackson continues to be out with an ankle harm, and with Tyler Huntley set to start, the line shut in the community of Rams -7 (-120), indicating 81.5% of the field grabbed outstanding benefit laying Rams -3.5

No closing-line benefit below, but our bookmakers are taking the 13 factors with the Texans, who visit a 49ers group sans Jimmy Garoppolo and starting up rookie Trey Lance in his spot.

In this article are the prime 5 Bookie Struggle performs for 7 days 17, with contest traces in comparison to closing market place consensus quantities.
