NFL Week 18 picks
Kansas City Chiefs (-10.5) at Denver Broncos
Point spread: Chiefs -10.5, Broncos +10.5
Moneyline: Chiefs -550, Broncos +400
My pick: Chiefs -10.5
Andy Reid and the Chiefs are gunning for the No. 1 seed in the AFC, so they won’t be resting any starters. Plus... it’s the Broncos.
Bet on Kansas City to roll into Mile High and blow Denver out of the water.
Washington Football Team (-7) at New York Giants
Point spread: Washington -7, Giants +7
Moneyline: Washington -300, Giants +235
My pick: Washington -7
I just listened to the Joe Judge rant again and Washington should be favored by one or two touchdowns more, honestly. Also, the over/under is hilarious. I’m sorry.
Bet on Washington to beat New York by eight or more points.
Indianapolis Colts (-15) at Jacksonville Jaguars
Point spread: Colts -15, Jaguars +16
Moneyline: Colts -1000, Jaguars +650
My pick: Colts -15
Until the Jaguars can cover the spread, they can’t.
Bet on Colts to win by ... a lot.
