We only have two weeks left of the NFL regular season, can you believe it?!

As always, I will give you my pick for all 16 games set to take place this week. In this article, I'm not going to worry about the point spread. The only thing I'm concerned with is what team is going to win each game.

You can use these picks for moneyline wagers, survivor pools, pick'em competitions, or maybe you want to pair a few of them together for a parlay.

If you want my best bet for each game including spreads and totals, check out this week's episode of the Bacon Bets Podcast.

But for now, here are my straight up picks for all 16 NFL Week 17 games.

NFL Week 17 Moneyline Bets

Dallas Cowboys vs. Tennessee Titans

  • Pick: Cowboys -625

New Orleans Saints vs. Philadelphia Eagles

  • Pick: Eagles -250

Carolina Panthers vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • Pick: Panthers +150

Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots

  • Pick: Dolphins +140

Cleveland Browns vs. Washington Commanders

  • Pick: Commanders -130

Indianapolis Colts vs. New York Giants

  • Pick: Colts +200

This might just be my favorite upset pick of the week. Despite the huge difference in records, both teams have similar stats across the board. In fact, the best unit on the field on Sunday will be the Colts defense, which has been a top 10 unit for the entire season. I'll back the Colts to play spoiler in this spot.

Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Houston Texans

  • Pick: Jaguars -208

Chicago Bears vs. Detroit Lions

  • Pick: Chicago Bears +220

Denver Broncos vs. Kansas City Chiefs

  • Pick: Chiefs -714

Arizona Cardinals vs. Atlanta Falcons

  • Pick: Falcons -168

San Francisco 49ers vs. Las Vegas Raiders

  • Pick: 49ers -450

New York Jets vs. Seattle Seahawks

  • Pick: Jets -125

The Jets' playoff hopes are still alive and the Seahawks haven't looked like a good team since mid-November. Mike White is back at QB for New York and that should be enough to propel them to a win in this spot.

Los Angeles Rams vs. Los Angeles Chargers

  • Pick: Chargers -275

Minnesota Vikings vs. Green Bay Packers

  • Pick: Packers -175

Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers need to win out to have a chance to make the playoffs, so this is a must-win game for them. It's time for the Vikings luck to run out.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Baltimore Ravens

  • Pick: Steelers +125

Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals

  • Pick: Bills -115

In what could end up being a preview of an AFC playoff matchup, I'll take the Bills to get the job done. They've been the most complete team this season and this could be a bit of a sell high spot on the Bengals, who have finished on the right side of the scoreboard week after week.
