Why I Like It
Broncos: Denver is without a doubt one of my favorite teaser options for Week 17, especially when you tease them down under a field goal at home. The Broncos are in a position to earn the No. 2 seed and a first round bye with a win. They also need to win this game to avoid falling from the division lead in the AFC, as the Chiefs would overtake them with a loss the Chargers and Kansas City win at home against the Raiders. Denver already beat the Chargers 17-3 in San Diego a few weeks back and have won 4 straight in the series. This game may be closer than expected, but I’m confident the Broncos walk away with a win by at least a field goal.
Saints: This is more of a fade against the Falcons than anything. Atlanta went into last week with an outside shot of making the playoffs and were out for revenge from a 38-0 loss at Carolina a few weeks back. Atlanta put everything they had into a 20-13 win over the Panthers at home and now find themselves in the ultimate letdown spot in Week 17 with nothing to play for. The Saints showed they still have some fight in them with a 38-27 win at home over the Jaguars and I look for New Orleans to be the only team interested in taking the field on Sunday. I’ll gladly take the Saints up over a double-digit dog on the teaser line as some extra insurance, but I think they have an excellent shot of winning this game outright.
Good luck this week!
