It all comes down to this. With the final week of the NFL season upon us, the Steelers need help in order to qualify for the postseason. What is frustrating is the Steelers controlled their own destiny over the last two weeks and came up short in both games. But if we were to go back to Week 3 and say the Steelers had a chance at the playoffs, it would seem far-fetched. Overall commentary on whether or not the 2019 season was a success will come when the season is over, so for now the only thing that matters is getting a victory on Sunday in Baltimore against the Ravens.
For the 2019 NFL season, both Jeff Hartman and myself will be picking every game (except Thursdays) against the spread and the over/under point totals. Please remember we are not experts on betting or any kind of sports gamblers. We are just a couple of Steelers’ fans saying who we think will come through each week.
Last week, Jeff and I remained within a game of each other as we both finished above .500 in both categories. Jeff broke the tie in the against the spread category at 9-6-1 while I came in just behind at 8-7-1. Jeff held a huge advantage in the over/under on the season, but I finished just ahead this week at 13-3 while he was 12-4. On the season, we are just a game apart against the spread while Jeff is up seven games in the over/under category.
So here are the picks for the Saturday games for Week 17 of the NFL season. Please feel free to list your choices in the comment section below and play along!
