Each week throughout the 2023 NFL season, the supercomputer has something to say about every matchup. No matter if it’s this week’s Dolphins-Ravens headliner or a game we’re not quite as excited about, it unsentimentally beeps its way through our model’s NFL picks.

Week 17 kicks off Thursday with the Jets visiting the Browns and ends on Sunday night with the Vikings hosting the Packers. For those games and everything between, we’ve taken plenty of data and pumped it through our predictive model. Keep in mind that these percentages move throughout the week as player news shakes things up. You can always find the win percentages – pregame or live – on our season-long predictions page.

According to our projections, the AFC teams most likely to make the Super Bowl this season are the Ravens and the Dolphins. Baltimore’s current odds of making the big game are 30.1%, which is the highest of any NFL team regardless of conference. In Sunday’s meeting, Baltimore has a win probability of 61.4% as the Ravens look to clinch the AFC’s No. 1 seed with a win.

Week 17 NFL Predictions Dolphins Ravens

There are seven AFC teams currently either a game over or a game under .500, and two of those teams will meet in Indianapolis this weekend as the Colts and Raiders face off. The Colts are currently the seventh seed in the playoff race while the Raiders are currently 11th and will need lots of help to reach the postseason. And while Las Vegas has won consecutive games, we like Indy in this one with a win probability of 60.9%.  

Week 17 NFL Predictions Raiders Colts

Tampa Bay is looking to clinch the NFC South title against the Saints this weekend as the Bucs just need a win to lock up the division. The Buccaneers have taken control of the South by winning four straight games, twice as long as any other current win streak by an NFC team. And Tampa Bay will likely run the win streak to five straight as we are giving them a 57.5% chance of victory.

Week 17 NFL Predictions Saints Bucs

Both Seattle and Pittsburgh enter their game on Sunday with 8-7 records after important wins last week, but the teams have completely different odds of making the playoffs. The Seahawks have a better than 70% chance of making the postseason out of the NFC while the Steelers have just a 26.2% chance according to our projections. And we like Seattle to get one step closer, giving them a 60.8% chance of victory.

Week 17 NFL Predictions Steelers Seahawks

On Saturday, the Lions will take on the Cowboys as both teams have already clinched a playoff spot. Detroit is one win away from its 12th win of the season, which would tie a franchise win record with its 1991 team. If the Cowboys win their last two games, they will hit the 12-win mark for the 16th time in team history. We think Dallas will get one step closer as we give them a 72.4% chance of beating Detroit.
