NFL betting guide: Expert 2022 Week 18 NFL picks, predictions, odds & best bets
Welcome to the Pickswise NFL Week 18 betting guide! We have made it to the end of the NFL regular season, although the mood around the league is more somber than celebratory this year after the upsetting scenes in Cincinnati on Monday night. Happily, Bills safety Damar Hamlin is now on the road to recovery and the NFL action resumes this weekend.
After Saturday’s AFC games — Chiefs vs Raiders and Titans vs Jaguars — there are no fewer than 14 games on Sunday’s slate. It’s the trickiest week of the season with doubts over team lineups and motivations, including some which could change depending on earlier results, but if this crazy season has taught us anything, we know there will be things you don’t expect to happen that will happen!
There are 8 games on Sunday’s 1:00pm slate with the Bills (vs Patriots) and Bengals (vs Ravens) both returning to the field, while the first pick in the draft will be decided by the result of the Texans vs Colts and (if the Texans win) Vikings vs Bears games. The 5-game late afternoon slate will see the NFC East title heading to either the Eagles or Cowboys, while the 49ers are chasing their 10th straight win when they meet the Cardinals. The final Sunday Night Football game of the season between the Lions and Packers could be a shootout for the final playoff place, depending on the result of the earlier Rams vs Seahawks game.
Our experts have done the hard work so you have everything you need to bet better and get the right results. This is your one-stop shop for everything you need to make the most of your NFL weekend. You can also read our great NFL predictions for every game on the final slate of the NFL regular season.
