As the final week of the NFL season dawns, it is imperative that NFL punters are aware of the NFL playoff image before placing Week 18 bets on the NFL. So far, 11 of the 14 playoff spots have been taken, but the standings are still largely up for grabs and 14 teams have been knocked out of the competition. That means you’ll need to keep motivation in mind, especially in games between teams that have nothing to play and teams that have something to play like Colts v Jaguars on Sunday.
Indianapolis can land a wild card spot with a win and the Jaguars can land the No.1 pick overall in the 2022 NFL Draft with a loss. But is that enough to justify the Colts’ 15.5 points in the latest NFL Week 18 odds at Caesars Sportsbook? Meanwhile, the Chargers are the three-point road favorites over the Raiders in the NFL closing lines of Week 18 in a game where the winner comes in. All of the Week 18 NFL lines are listed below and SportsLine’s advanced computer model has all of the NFL betting tips. and the predictions you need to make the best NFL Week 18 picks now.

Now he’s turned his attention to the latest NFL odds from Week 18 and locked the picks for every NFL game. Head here to see each choice.
Best NFL predictions of week 18
One of the model’s best picks in Week 18 of the NFL is that the Tampa Bay Buccaneers will cover the eight-point home favorites against Carolina on Sunday at 4:25 p.m. ET. The Panthers tried everything to disrupt the NFC South and make a playoff push, but it just didn’t work. Panthers head coach Matt Rhule starts Week 18 with the same 5-11 record he finished with last season, sparking speculation about his longevity in the role.
When the teams played just two weeks ago, Tampa Bay quarterback Tom Brady needed just 232 passing yards on 18 completed passes to keep the offense on track in sight. of a 32-6 win. Bucs running back Ke’Shawn Vaughn was an unlikely star, and he had seven carries on 70 yards and a touchdown. Meanwhile, the Panthers haven’t covered the spread in any of their last six games.
The model projects Tampa Bay as one of the NFL’s top picks in Week 18, and the Bucs cover the gap in well over 50% of all simulations. Tampa Bay has also scored at least 30 points in five of its last seven games, which makes the case for the pass 70 percent of the time.
Another of his NFL Week 18 predictions: The Seahawks (+5.5) stay in the gap against the Cardinals on the road in another kickoff at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday. Arizona landed a playoff berth but can win NFC West and take a home game with a Rams win and loss to the 49ers. But this is a very different roster than what we saw run for a 7-0 start to the season.
The Cardinals suffered three straight losses last month, the low point being a 30-12 loss to a Lions team that is now 2-13-1 that year. And while they gained momentum in a 25-22 win over the Cowboys last week, there are still a few issues to be addressed heading into the playoffs. Considering the injuries Kyler Murray has suffered this season, Kliff Kingsbury can be cautious.
Meanwhile, the Seahawks are coming off an offensive explosion last week where they lost 51 points on that same Lions team that recently beat the Cardinals. Arizona’s biggest weakness has been running defense, as Arizona ranks 21st in the NFL for yards allowed per carry. Seattle just had a 265-yard rush day, and the model predicts the Seahawks will rack up nearly 150 rushing yards to help cover well over 50% of its sims.
