Entering the final week of the NFL season, it’s imperative that NFL bettors are aware of the NFL playoff picture before they place any Week 18 NFL bets. So far, 11 of the 14 playoff spots have been clinched, but seeding is still largely up for grabs and 14 teams have been eliminated from contention. That means you’ll have to keep motivation in mind, particularly in games between teams with nothing to play for and teams with something to play for like Colts vs. Jaguars on Sunday.
Indianapolis can clinch a wild card spot with a win and the Jaguars can clinch the No. 1 overall pick in the 2022 NFL draft with a loss. But is that enough to justify the 15.5 points the Colts are laying in the latest Week 18 NFL odds at Caesars Sportsbook? Meanwhile, the Chargers are three-point road favorites over the Raiders in the latest Week 18 NFL lines in a game where the winner gets in. All of the Week 18 NFL lines are listed below and SportsLine’s advanced computer model has all the NFL betting advice and predictions you need to make the best Week 18 NFL picks now.
