Ernesto the Prediction Iguana had a strong 6-2 week last week, 3-2 in teasers. That brings thee overall standings to an excellent 56-20-2 overall, 20-12-2 in teasers.
Week 17 is always a dicey proposition, what with teams saving their best players for the playoffs. It’s good to stay quiet this week, so, as a result, you get just two plays.
REDSKINS (-2) vs. Giants
Cardinals EVEN at RAMS
Assuming the Giants will rest Eli Manning and Odell Beckham, Jr., Washington’s highly potent offense will give the home fans one last cheer. Any 11 guys out of a bar can beat the Rams, which was exactly what happened last week.
COLTS (+1.5) vs. Jaguars
STEELERS (-1.5) vs. Browns
Luck’s return was just too late to save the Colts’ season, but he’s too good for the Jags. The Steelers should rest everyone for the playoffs. They won’t get a bye, but with the third seed a lock, they can coast into next week much healthier if they send out a lighter shade of themselves, still almost a certainty to tame the Browns.
