NFL Week 18 Outlook; Sunday, Jan. 9, 2022 3:25pm CST
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 New Orleans Saints vs Atlanta Falcons and New York Jets vs Buffalo Bills. It is never good going into the last week of the season and saying you are playing for bragging rights. But that is exactly what three out of these four teams are doing on Sunday.
New Orleans Saints Travel to Atlanta to Face the Falcons
The New Orleans Saints and Atlanta Falcons are playing for nothing this week. The Falcons covered against the Bills by a single point on Sunday. However, they do not have as many points as home dogs against the Saints.
New Orleans is -4.5, but more people like the Falcons at home at +4.5. This game will likely be close, which makes sense why people are so high on the Falcons’ points.
60% of bettors are taking the over of 40 points. The Falcons are +180 on the money line if you think they have a chance to win outright.
New York Jets Travel to Buffalo to Face the Bills
The Jets just played the Buccaneers very tough on Sunday at home. This was an anomaly compared to what they have done throughout the season. New York is not a good football team, and they will have a hard time covering against Buffalo this weekend.
The Bills’ playoff position is not going to change much. They want to win, but I do not think they risk players to make this happen. This is why 85% of people are taking the Jets at +17.
The total of 43.5 is split down the middle. The Jets are +810 money line if you think they have a shot of winning. This is tremendous value.
