Week 17 NFL picks for Patriots vs. Jaguars

Before you tune in to Sunday's Jaguars vs. Patriots game, you need to see the NFL picks from SportsLine's advanced computer model. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up over $7,100 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception six-plus years ago. The model enters Week 17 of the 2021 season on an incredible 134-96 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season.

The model also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past five years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94 percent of CBS Sports Football Pick'em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

For Jaguars vs. Patriots, the model is backing Jacksonville to cover as 16.5-point underdogs. Even though the Jaguars' offense has looked atrocious over the second half of the season, Jacksonville has managed to cover the spread in two of the three games it has been a double-digit underdog. The Jaguars actually grade out with the highest-paced offense in the NFL and are behind just Pittsburgh in second half pace.

With James Robinson (Achilles) done for the year and backup Carlos Hyde (concussion) already shut down, there aren't many options left in the Jaguars' backfield. That means more drop-backs for rookie quarterback Trevor Lawrence, who threw for 280 yards and didn't turn the ball over last week in a loss to the New York Jets. The model says the Jaguars stay within the spread in nearly 60 percent of simulations.
