Moneyline Upset Alerts NFL Week 17

Detroit Lions +270 at Green Bay Packers -330
When: Sunday, Dec. 30 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, WI
TV: FOX

Analysis: Green Bay’s favored by 7 points. The Packers struggled to beat the New York Jets in Week 16, though. They had to rally in overtime for the 44-38 win.

Detroit struggled against the Minnesota Vikings, but the Lions are a much better team than what they’ve shown in their last couple, a 13-14 loss to Buffalo in Week 15 and the 9-27 loss to Minnesota in Week 16.

Detroit beat Green Bay 31-23 in the first game between these two. Detroit’s offense should put up some points against the Packers while there’s no doubt that even though the Lions couldn’t keep Minnesota from scoring over 25, Detroit’s got the better defense in Week 17. They’ll upset Green Bay straight up.

Upset Moneyline Pick: Detroit Lions +270

Dallas Cowboys +225 at New York Giants -265
When: Sunday, Dec. 30 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: MetLife Stadium, East Rutherford, NJ
TV: FOX

Analysis: Dallas won the AFC East. Since there’s no chance for the Cowboys to gain a bye, they’ll most likely rest their starters on Sunday versus the rival New York Giants. With Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott on the bench, the Giants should show up as the favorites.

But, Dallas won’t just quit. The Cowboys will play many of their starters on defense. The defense should keep the Cowboys in the game until the backup players on offense push forward for a victory.

Also, it’s not the Giants have anything to play for in Week 17. Dallas wins as a slight dog.

Upset Moneyline Pick: Dallas Cowboys +225

Miami Dolphins -185 at Buffalo Bills +160
When: Sunday, Dec. 30 at 1:00 pm ET
Where: New Era Field, Buffalo, NY
TV: CBS

Analysis: The Bills should be favored. Buffalo’s played well since their bye, beating the Jaguars and Lions and hanging with the Dolphins and Jets. Even losing by 12 to the Patriots in Week 16, wasn’t bad.

But, the Bills shouldn’t be favored. Miami looked terrible in Week 16. This is Week 17 where Dolphins players should fight hard to impress the front office. Expect the coaching staff to lay everything out on the line as well to try and save their jobs.

Miami beat Buffalo 21-17 earlier this season. A similar score should happen on Dec. 30.

Upset Moneyline Pick: Miami Dolphins -185
