Saturday Football Betting: Bet Football in Week 18

Posted by: Hilbert Mayer
Bet Football in Week 18

As many teams are still alive with the last weekend upon us as any of us can remember. That makes for a remarkable final weekend of the season, where many teams will get in and some will be left in the cold. Even better, as the college football season has (all but) ended, then there are going to be games on Saturday, too. So, you’ll be able to bet football in week 18 on Saturday as well as on Sunday, too. There’s still plenty of time for you to make some big winnings this season before the playoffs, too. You can start betting on NFL games at our website.

Bet Football Saturday 1/8/22

There are games that matter throughout the Saturday slate, too. The Eagles and Cowboys are in the playoffs, yes, but the Cowboys want to see how high they can climb the rankings (so as to get a lower ranked opponent in the first game of the playoffs). To do so, they’ll play their old rivals from the NFC East, the Philadelphia Eagles. The Eagles are into the playoffs, as Jalen Hurts has really come on. The Cowboys are seven point favorites at home.  How do you have this game? 

In the AFC West, the Denver Broncos are out of the playoffs (but, it should be said, they’re out of it a lot later than many folks anticipated, especially once it seemed like they were going to sell off most of their roster in the middle of the season). They will get a chance to play spoiler, however. The Chiefs have a slim chance to get the one bye in the AFC (especially after last week’s loss to the Bengals). It’s never easy to play a mile up, but the Chiefs are still favored by ten points on the road. What do you think? 

Bet Football in Week 18: The Last Sunday of the NFL Regular Season 

Plenty of big games throughout the Sunday games, too. The Colts are 15.5 point favorites on the road in Jacksonville. The Colts have everything to play for: win and they’re in, lose and they could be done. The Jags have not looked good recently (or, really, much during this season). But, we always come back to one stat: the Colts have lost their last six games on the road in Jacksonville. How do you see it going? Can the Jags keep it close? Or do the Colts just roll? 

There’s no rivalry in this sport or any other like the Steelers and Ravens. This game does, technically, have playoff implications. Neither team has been eliminated yet (technically). The winner can get in if the Colts lose to the Jags. So, it’s entirely possible this is Ben Roethlisberger’s last game ever. That said, Lamar may not play for the Ravens, either. But, this is a real rivalry. This game always matters to both teams. Do the Ravens hold serve at M and T Bank Stadium? Or, do the Steelers put themselves in the position for a “win and they’re in” miracle? 

Of course, there’s one more way that either the Steelers and Ravens could not get in, even if one of those teams wins and the Colts do lose to the Jags: if the Chargers and Raiders tie. In fact, if they tie, they both get in. So, conceivably, they could both take knees for three and a half hours and both go to the playoffs. But, you know that’s not going to happen. 

So, it’s the 8:25 PM game for a reason. This is (most likely) an actual playoff game. The Chargers are a three point favorite in Vegas, but this game could go either way. What do you think? You’ll be able to bet the NFL playoffs here at BetNow, too!
