Free NFL Picks For Today 1/17/2021
Cleveland Browns vs. Kansas City Chiefs Pick Prediction 1/17/2021
Browns at Chiefs—NFL pick is Cleveland Browns +10. Despite a 14-2 record the Chiefs have failed to cover the spread in nine of sixteen games. No covers in seven of eight as the Chiefs struggled to get separation from teams with seven straight wins by one possession. Cleveland has put up good defensive numbers on the season. They have a good running game behind Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt which has aided Baker Mayfield’s improvement this year. Chiefs are allowing 4.5 yards per rush so that can buy time in the pocket in play action for Mayfield. Ten is too many points to lay here. Play Cleveland +10.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. New Orleans Saints Pick Prediction 1/17/2021
Buccaneers at Saints—NFL free pick is New Orleans Saints -3. Concern is for the Tampa Bay defense giving up 23 points and failing to cover against the Washington Football Team who was utilizing their fourth quarterback this season. New Orleans won both meetings putting up 34 and 38 points on the Buccaneers defense. Buccaneers went 1-5 straight up against playoff teams in the regular season and got past a Washington team that made the playoffs with a losing record. Saints do have the benefit of a bye week in this spot and their defensive has put up the better numbers. Play New Orleans -3.
