NFL Week 18 Outlook; Sunday 3:25pm CST and Sunday Night Football
The final week of the NFL regular season has arrived. It’s going to be an epic week of football. There is a mix of meaningful matchups and dud games on the slate. However, betting makes every game interesting.
If you want to win money on the NFL, you need to prepare. We have one final slate of games to make this happen. Let’s go to work and finish the regular season on a high note.
We will look at Carolina Panthers vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Los Angeles Chargers vs Las Vegas Raiders.
Carolina Panthers Travel to Tampa Bay to Face the Buccaneers
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are one of the best teams in the NFC. However, they will not receive a bye because the Packers earned this right. Tampa Bay is -8 on Sunday, and they should cover this with ease, considering the Panthers are very bad.
The Carolina Panthers meet the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in an NFC South showdown on Sunday afternoon. The Panthers’ problems didn’t get any better after losing at home to the Saints last week. The Jets covered the Bucs on the road. Tampa Bay handed Carolina a 32-6 defeat back in November.
Tampa Bay is 8-8 ATS compared to the Panthers at 5-11. Carolina is in shambles.
Los Angeles Chargers Travels to Las Vegas to Face the Raiders
The Chargers and Raiders game-winner will be going to the playoffs. Both teams are 9-7, but Los Angeles currently holds the tiebreaker between the two teams. However, a win for the Raiders will give them a better record and make them the seventh seed in the playoffs.
The 9-7 Los Angeles Chargers must win in Week 18, which will provide them the final AFC Wildcard spot in the playoffs, so QB Justin Herbert’s good side must come out and his team’s 22nd ranked defense must game plan a way to stop the Raiders’ 6th ranked air attack if they want to win and stay alive.
Los Angeles is -2.5 on Sunday, with 79% of people taking the over of 49 points. 65% of bettors are taking the Chargers, but Las Vegas is one of the peskiest teams in the league.
