The final week of the regular season presents more challenges along with significant line moves. Several teams are eliminated from the playoffs, yet a number of games in Week 18 have playoff implications or seeding significance. Three playoff berths have yet to be claimed (2 in AFC, 1 in NFC). and Saturday’s results will impact playoff seeds and division winners. So will additional games Sunday, which dictates how we approach, bet and pick any other games with line moves also in play including ahead of the Sunday Night Football game betterrn the Detroil Lions and Green Bay Packers.

NFL Week 18 Underdog Picks
Las Vegas (+9.5) vs Kansas City – Raiders moneyline +360
Line has dipped to +9 since our original post at OSGA, where I provide additional analysis. Check back this weekend and Sunday for any updates, additions and information you can bet on.
Sunday update: Posted this at OSGA. No additional underdog picks. We’ll be following in-game and live betting. An opinion on the Detroit Lions (+5) at Green Bay on Sunday Night Football. The Packers are in the playoffs as the No. 7 NFC Wild Card if they win. If Seattle wins versus the LA Rams, the Lions are eliminated and the Seahawks get the No. 7 seed if the Packers lose. The line would go up, but we’d still support the Lions. Should the Seahawks lose, then the Lions can get the No. 7 seed with a win. We’ll wait to bet more, follow the Seahawks/Rams game and bet accordingly with betting line adjustments.
