NFL Week 17 Odds, Lines, Spreads for Each Game

We've reached Week 17 of my NFL picks against the spread, and I can say I learned one thing this season: It's much more fun when you have something on the line.

Sunday, I arrived at my friend's house for the Detroit Lions game. We watch it together just about every week.

This week was different, though. 

He was visibly more excited than me. It was all because he was in the finals of our fantasy football league and had a chance at claiming the top spot in a pick 'em contest. 

Myself? I was knocked out in the semifinals and was apprehensive the Lions would blow it (they did, but you already knew that since I typed "Lions"). 

Some teams don't have anything on the line this week. That will matter in these picks. 

But I do. Despite my abysmal season record (a theme that seems common as CBS and Bill Simmons can attest), I still have a chance to end my six-week challenge with a winning record. 

Don't judge me. I know it's a gimmick I came up with to keep me motivated, but it's working. And I'll do the same thing next week when we start the playoffs.

Last Week's Record: 6-10

Six-Week Challenge Record: 40-36-2

Season Record: 106-129-8
