Week 18 wraps up another great NFL Regular Season and will finalize what should be an exciting postseason over the next few weeks. This week, all 32 teams are in action with a Saturday doubleheader, Sunday Night Football and 13 games lined up for Sunday afternoon.

With no Thursday matchup, the week kicks off with the Steelers and Ravens meeting in a Saturday afternoon matchup followed by another divisional tilt at 8:15 p.m. ET as the Colts host the Texans. On Sunday, six games start at 1:00 p.m. ET followed by a massive seven-game wave at 4:25 p.m. ET. The nightcap and final game of the regular season will decide the AFC East as the Dolphins welcome the Bills to Miami. All 16 matchups are divisional matchups, and all 16 are rematches of games that took place earlier this season.

Each week to help you find the stats and trends that matter, I’ve been posting the relevant info for every matchup from DraftKings Sportsbook. You can use these numbers to fill out your Week 18 betting card with single bets or combine them into an awesome parlay.

All odds are provided by DraftKings Sportsbook and all odds are subject to change.



Pittsburgh Steelers at Baltimore Ravens

Relevant Records

Betting Trends

The Ravens are locked in as the No. 1 seed in the AFC after impressive back-to-back SU/ATS wins over the Dolphins and 49ers. They’ll be home against the Steelers before their bye week. The Steelers are also still in the playoff hunt as well, but even if they win, they aren’t guaranteed a spot. A loss doesn’t eliminate them either but would seriously hurt their chances. The Steelers are 13-7 SU/13-7 ATS in their last 20 games and are 6-1 SU in their last seven games against the Ravens. They’re also 5-1 SU in their last six games in Baltimore. The Ravens are 6-0 SU/5-1 ATS in their last six games and 5-1 SU in their last six against the AFC. However, they are just 0-6 SU in their last six games played in January. The under is 6-0 in the last six meetings between these teams, but the over is 4-1 in the Steelers’ last five games and 5-2 in the Ravens’ last seven contests.


Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts

Betting Trends

This one’s pretty straightforward—the team that wins is in the playoffs. These two teams met in Week all the way back in Week 2, and the Colts won 31-20 as Gardner Minshew stepped in after an injury to Anthony Richardson. Now, Minshew can get the Colts to the playoffs with a win over impressive rookie C.J. Stroud on Saturday night. The Texans got a big SU/ATS win last week in Stroud’s return from injury and are 6-3 SU in their last nine games, 7-3 ATS in their last 10 road games and 10-4 ATS in their last 14 games as the underdog. The Colts have dominated their recent head-to-head history, going 17-4 SU in their last 21 home games against Houston and 8-2-1 SU/8-3 ATS in their last 11 matchups overall. The Colts are also 6-2 SU in their last eight games and 5-1 ATS in their last six games as a favorite. The over is 5-1 in the Colts’ last six games and 6-1 in their last seven games vs. the AFC. However, the under is 5-2 in the Texans’ last seven games and 8-3 in their last 11 divisional matchups.


Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Carolina Panthers

Relevant Records

Betting Trends

The Bucs can win the NFC South with a road win over the Panthers even after their ugly SU/ATS loss to the Saints last week. If the Panthers win, they’ll open the door for the winner of the Falcons-Saints game to steal the division. The Bucs are 7-3 ATS over their last 10 games and 6-1 SU/5-2 ATS in their last seven meetings with the Panthers. They have also gone 7-1 ATS in their last eight road games but are only 3-7 ATS in their last 10 divisional matchups. The Panthers are a miserably 1-8 SU in their last nine games overall, 1-10 SU in their last 11 vs. the NFC and 1-4 SU in their last five divisional contests. The under is 8-2 in the Panthers’ last 10 games and 6-1 in their last seven home games. However, the over is 6-2 in the last eight meetings between these teams and 4-2 in the Bucs’ last six games.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans

Betting Trends

The Jaguars will win the AFC South with a win over the Titans, who they beat 34-14 in Week 11. The Jags are just 1-4 SU/1-4 ATS in their last five games but 9-2 ATS in their last 11 road games. They have gone 12-6 ATS in their last 18 games vs. the AFC and 7-1 SU in their last eight divisional contests. The Titans are just 3-8-1 ATS in their last 12 games but will look to play spoiler against Jacksonville, who they have beaten in eight of their last nine meetings in Tennessee. The under is 15-5 in the Titans’ last 20 games and 6-3 in the Jags’ last nine.

The Packers set up a “win and get in” scenario for themselves with a win last Sunday night over the Vikings. They are 5-2 SU in their last seven games and 7-0 SU in their last seven home games against the Bears. However, they are just 1-4 ATS in their last five games as the favorite and 2-4 ATS in their last six games in January. The Bears are 4-1 SU in their last five games, 5-1 ATS in their last six and 5-0 ATS in their last five games vs. the NFC. However, they are 0-9 SU/0-9 ATS in their last nine games against the Packers and 2-10 SU in their last 12 road games. They’re also only 4-12 ATS in their last 16 divisional games. The under is 6-3 in the Bears’ last nine games, but the over is 6-0 in the Packers’ last six games and 5-2 in the last seven head-to-head matchups between these NFC North foes.

Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals

Betting Trends

The Seahawks are still alive for the playoffs but need a win and a Packers loss to make the postseason. They’ll visit the Cardinals to close out their season, but Arizona is coming off an impressive SU/ATS road win in Philadelphia. The Seahawks are 5-1 SU/5-1 ATS in their last six games against the Cardinals and 8-2 ATS in their last 10 vs. the NFC. On the other hand, they are only 2-5 SU in their last seven games. The Cardinals are just 4-16 SU in their last 20 games and 0-7 ATS in their last seven divisional games. The over is 4-1 in their last five games, but the under is 6-1 in the Seahawks’ last seven road matchups and 6-3 in their last nine head-to-head meetings. This is a rematch of the Week 7 meeting between these teams in Seattle that the Seahawks won, 20-10.


Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins

Relevant Records

Betting Trends

The Sunday Night Football game should be a great way to close out the week. The Dolphins are in the postseason win or lose, but they can win the division with a win. The Bills are the No. 2 seed and AFC East champion with a win, but a loss could drop them all the way out of the playoffs if the Steelers and Jaguars win. When the two teams met in Buffalo in Week 4, the Bills won, 48-20. The Bills are 10-1 SU in their last 11 games against the Dolphins, but the Dolphins are 11-1 SU in their last 12 Sunday home games. While the Bills are 5-1 SU in their last six games and 8-2 SU in their last 10 divisional games, they are just 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games overall. The Dolphins are 13-6 ATS in their last 19 games, 8-1 ATS in their last nine divisional games and 5-2 SU in their last seven games overall. The over is 8-3 in the last 11 matchups between these teams and 4-2 in the Dolphins’ last six overall, but the under is 8-4 in the Bills’ last 12 games.
