Chiefs at Broncos Week 18 Picks

Under 45 Points

We can’t rely on the Broncos to get to 20 – they’ve only scored over 13 points once in the last five weeks, and that was against the Lions. Conversely, Denver’s defense is legit and there isn’t much motivation for KC to play its offensive stars from start to finish.

KC had held four of five opponents to 10 points or less before getting blitzed by Joe Burrow last week. Still, the defense has the edge regardless of which team has the ball. (Locked in at -110 at FanDuel New York)

Chiefs -6.5 First Half

Denver’s season is lost, despite having a defense that ranks No. 3 in points allowed and No. 9 in yards allowed. That’s because the QB situation has been a disaster and the playcalling has been suspect at best. But KC doesn’t have much to play for in Week 18 – it can clinch the No. 1 seed if the Titans lose to the Texans, but what are the chances of that happening? They would much rather be fully healthy heading into next week.

Look for a quick start for KC and avoid a possible back-door cover by Denver by laying the points on the first half. (Locked in at -125 with DraftKings. The latest DraftKings New York promo code delivers a deposit match worth up $1,000)

Courtland Sutton, Over 29.5 Receiving Yards

Sutton’s targets have increased with Drew Lock under center, including a 60-yard output last week vs. the Chargers. In five career games vs. the Chiefs, Sutton has more than 50 yards in all but one. (Locked in at -115 at DraftKings New York)

Cowboys at Eagles Week 18 Picks

Over 44 Points

Only one Cowboys game in the last six has gone under 44 points and that was because the Giants’ offense is atrocious. The Eagles take the air out of the ball but three of their last four have gone for 44 or more points. The Over is worth considering for small NFL betting action. (Locked in at -110 at DraftKings)

Dalton Schultz, Score a TD

The tight end Schultz ranks No. 2 on the Cowboys in touchdowns, as well as No. 2 in receptions and yards. No team has allowed more yards to TEs than the Eagles. There aren’t any yardage props for this game due to the unknown nature of who will play serious minutes.

Schultz getting into the end zone is worth a small play at sportsbooks. (Locked in at +220 at FanDuel New York)

Jake Elliott, Over 6.5 Points

The Eagles kicker has missed one field goal since Week 16 and hasn’t missed any extra points all year. And he’s scoring a lot of points as Philly’s offense stalls in the red zone.

Only three times all year has he not produced at least seven points, and during this four-game win streak he’s had between 9-15 points in each. (Locked in at +110 at Caesars. The latest Caesars Sportsbook New York promo code unlocks up to $3,300 in free bets for new users)
