Week 17s are much nicer when the games mean something. It’s funner to pick games and watch them when teams are playing starters and not trying to consider how much rest they should give their players. For the 2013-14 NFL season, most teams will play a meaningful gamel. Only one of the 12 playoff representatives has nothing to play for. Even then, the Kansas City Chiefs may have a chance to put the final dagger in the playoff hopes of the San Diego Chargers.

Here are some NFL picks against the spread for Week 17 games during the 2013-14 NFL season. Spread winners with (- or +) next to team name.  Straight winners listed at end of each game. Lines from covers.com as of Dec. 24.
