Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers will try to keep their playoff hopes alive when they host Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings on Sunday afternoon. Despite their tumultuous season, Green Bay can still sneak into the postseason if they win out, and if the Commanders lose once or the Giants lose out. Those outside factors won’t matter if Green Bay doesn’t beat Minnesota. The Packers have won three straight games to stay alive, most recently a 26-20 upset of the Dolphins in Miami. The Vikings, meanwhile, are still playing to secure the NFC’s No. 2 seed. Minnesota has won two in a row, including a 27-24 victory over the Giants on Christmas Eve. The Packers are 3-point favorites in the latest Week 17 odds at Caesars Sportsbook. Which Week 17 NFL lines should you target with your Week 17 NFL bets?

Top Week 17 NFL picks
After simulating every game 10,000 times, the model is high on the San Francisco 49ers (-9.5) to cover against the Las Vegas Raiders. The Raiders may face their biggest uphill battle of the season on Sunday.
Las Vegas has nothing to play for, and has benched quarterback Derek Carr for the remainder of the season. Jarrett Stidham will make his first career start in the NFL, and his past performance as a backup hasn’t exactly been inspiring. Between the difficulty the Raiders are expected to have with moving the ball against the NFL’s best defense and Brock Purdy’s ascension as San Francisco’s signal-caller, it’s not particularly difficult to imagine the 49ers winning by double digits. That is one reason the 49ers are covering the spread in more than 50% of simulations according to the model. See which other NFL parlay picks to make here.
