The final betting slate of the regular season is upon us, and NFL Week 18 odds have been updated at sportsbooks.

There’s a pair of games on Saturday, including Titans-Jaguars, which will determine the winner of the AFC South. The Chiefs face the Raiders in Saturday’s early game with a chance to capture the AFC’s No. 1 playoff seed.

There’s more clarity surrounding the AFC playoff situation now after the NFL canceled Bills-Bengals and declared the game a “no contest.” The Bills host the Patriots while the Bengals face the Ravens on Sunday. Both games were off the board earlier this week, but we have updates on line movements below.

Lions-Packers was flexed to SNF as the weekend’s marquee matchup. Both teams remain alive for a postseason berth, although the Lions could be eliminated by the time the game kicks off.

Let’s examine Week 18 betting line movement at DraftKings and the playoff implications for teams heading into the last week of the NFL’s regular season.

NFL Week 18 Betting Odds

Here’s a game-by-game peek at NFL Week 18 betting lines from DraftKings:

Saturday, Jan. 7

Chiefs (-9, 52) at Raiders

The Chiefs are still in the mix for the AFC’s No. 1 seed. Kansas City can secure the top seed with a win at Las Vegas or if New England defeats Buffalo on Sunday.

The Raiders are out of playoff contention. Las Vegas has benched QB Derek Carr in favor of Jarrett Stidham. Fun fact: Las Vegas is 6-1 ATS in its last seven games against AFC West foes.

Titans at Jaguars (-6.5, 40)

The winner of Titans-Jaguars will clinch the AFC South. Tennessee head coach Mike Vrabel announced that Joshua Dobbs will start at QB. The Titans are 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games. Jacksonville, peaking at the right time, is 5-1 SU in its last six tilts.

Sunday, Jan. 8

Patriots at Bills (-7.5, 43.5)

This game opened at Buffalo -8.5 before it was taken off the board early this week. The Patriots can clinch a playoff berth with a win at Buffalo. The Bills could play the AFC Championship Game at a neutral site under the NFL’s revised playoff plan.

Ravens at Bengals (-10, 40)

Significant movement here after an opener of Cincinnati -6.5. This game was also off the board earlier this week.

After the NFL announced that the Bills-Bengals game was canceled, Cincinnati was declared the AFC North champion. The Bengals can capture the AFC’s No. 2 or No. 3 seed on Sunday.

Vikings (-7.5, 43) at Bears

This line opened at Minnesota -1 but surged to -7.5 after the news dropped that Justin Fields (hip, shoulder) will not play. Nathan Peterman gets the start for Chicago.

Minnesota will either be the No. 2 or No. 3 seed in the NFC based on how Sunday’s games shake out. The Vikings have gone 5-0 to the Over in their last five games.

Browns at Steelers (-2, 40.5)

Pittsburgh’s playoff hopes are alive, but it needs to win and have the Bills and Jets both either win or tie in their Week 18 games. Head coach Mike Tomlin’s career-long streak of never having a losing season also remains alive with the Steelers entering this game at 8-8.

Bucs at Falcons (-4.5, 40.5)

This game means nothing after Tampa Bay clinched the NFC South title with a 30-24 win over Carolina on Sunday. Atlanta had already been eliminated from the playoffs. The Bucs have won five straight games SU over the Falcons.

Jets at Dolphins (-3.5, 37)

The Jets (7-9) saw their postseason hopes dashed after a 23-6 loss at Seattle. Miami (8-8) has lost its last five games but remains alive. Tua Tagovailoa remains in the NFL’s concussion protocol. Skylar Thompson is the likely starter at QB as Teddy Bridgewater is dealing with a hand injury.

Panthers at Saints (-3.5, 42)

The Panthers and Saints will be playing for pride in this matchup. New Orleans has played to the Under in five straight games, including a 20-10 win at Philadelphia on Sunday.

Texans at Colts (-2.5, 38)

Houston will get the No. 1 pick in the 2023 NFL Draft if it loses at Indy. Alabama QB Bryce Young would be there for the taking.

Giants at Eagles (-14, 43)

New York is locked into the NFC’s No. 6 seed. Philadelphia can secure the NFC East title and No. 1 seed in the NFC with a win on Sunday. The Giants have been road warriors, going 6-1 ATS in their last seven away games. Jalen Hurts (shoulder) will reportedly start for the Eagles at QB.

Cowboys (-7, 41) at Commanders

Rookie QB Sam Howell will get the start for Washington. Dallas still has a chance to win the NFC East and capture the NFC’s top seed. Washington is officially out of the playoff mix. The Cowboys are 6-1 SU in their last seven games.

Cardinals at 49ers (-14, 39.5)

One reason to watch: This is J.J. Watt’s final game as an NFL player. The 49ers (12-4) also have an outside chance to grab the NFC’s No. 1 seed depending on how the Eagles and Cowboys fare in Week 18.

Rams at Seahawks (-6, 41.5)

The Seahawks need a win here to keep their playoff hopes alive. They also need the Packers to lose or tie against the Lions in Week 18 to advance.

Chargers at Broncos (-3, 40)

This line flipped from an opener of Chargers -3. Los Angeles has clinched a playoff spot, and there’s not a lot of intrigue here. If the Ravens lose to the Bengals before this game kicks off, Los Angeles will be locked into the No. 5 seed.

Lions at Packers (-5, 49)

Green Bay can nab the NFC’s final wildcard spot with a win over the Lions. Detroit can advance to the postseason with a win or tie and a loss by Seattle. The Lions are on an impressive run, going 8-1 ATS in their last nine games.
