It’s the last week of the regular season and here are the opening odds for every trending NFL game this week that the public and sharps are eyeing.

Opening Trending Odds NFL Week 17

Green Bay -10 at Detroit
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

The Packers had yet to take on Minnesota in their insanely huge Week 16 Monday night matchup, but after falling to the Vikings to fall into a tie for first place in the NFC North, Green Bay obliterates Detroit to cover the chalk and finish with the division title, no matter how Minnesota finishes.

Chicago at Minnesota -7
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

After getting past Green Bay in what I believe will be a hard-fought Week 16 matchup, I like Minnesota to throttle Chicago in their regular season finale. The Bears are nearly inept on offense and the Vikings have a ton to play for with the NFC North division title almost assuredly still on the line.

L.A. Chargers at Kansas City -6.5
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS

Philip Rivers and the Chargers have completely and utterly quit on this season. The Bolts have lost two straight and five of six. Conversely, Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs are on a nice roll heading into the playoffs, having won five straight, including a 26-3 smackdown of Chicago on Sunday. I expect the Chiefs to have this one well in hand before resting most their starters in the second half.

NY Jets at Buffalo -4.5
at 1:00 PM ET
CBS

Despite their Week 16 loss at New England and New York’s impressive home win over the Steelers, Buffalo is the easy pick to take care of business by at least a touchdown while getting set for their upcoming playoff appearance.

New Orleans -14 at Carolina
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

The Panthers are a complete and utter mess, having lost seven straight games including their embarrassing 38-6 loss against Indianapolis on Sunday. With drew Brees and the Saints still in play to get the top seed in the NFC playoffs, New Orleans will win this one by a ton to easily cover the two-touchdown spread!

Washington at Dallas -11½
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

The Skins may have lost to the Giants in an overtime thriller to fall to 0-3 over their last three games, but there’s no way I can back Dallas to cover the high spread in this season-ending NFC East matchup against Washington after watching the egg the Boys laid in their humongous 1709 week 16 divisional loss against Philly with the division title on the line this past weekend.

Philadelphia -4.5 at N.Y. Giants
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: FOX

Philadelphia did just enough to get past Dallas in Week 16 and now all the Birds have to do is take care of business against the Giants in their regular season finale. No way do Carson Wentz and the Birds blow it after overcoming a season’s worth of injuries and struggles.

Tennessee -5 at Houston
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS

The Titans put up a helluva’ fight before fading late against New Orleans in their 38-28 Week 16 road loss. Houston got past Tennessee on Saturday and now, I believe Deshaun Watson and the Texans will narrowly escape this season-ending divisional showdown to win the AFC South, although I like the Titans to cover the chalk in what looks like a classic field goal finish waiting to happen.

Pittsburgh at Baltimore -3
at 1:00 PM ET
TV: CBS

Despite their shocking upset loss against the Jets this past weekend, Mike Tomlin is still, hands down, my Coach of the Year. Still, there’s no way that Baltimore manages to drop this season-ending contest, even though I don’t expect to see Lamar Jackson after halftime, if at all.

San Francisco -3 at Seattle
at 4:25 PM ET
TV: FOX

Russell Wilson and the Seahawks have dropped two of three and they blew a golden opportunity to potentially nail down the top seed in the NFC playoffs by losing to Arizona on Sunday. Still, I’m expecting Seattle to show up in a big way to get the huge upset win over Jimmy G and the Niners to hit the postseason on a positive note.
