For the final time of the season I will run through a few of the bets I have already made for the upcoming NFL week. Even with this being the final week of the regular season there is still some value to be found early in the week. Odds via PointsBet.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Denver Broncos (+10) Total: 44

As long as Drew Lock is the starter for the Denver Broncos they are an auto-fade for me. Remember when the preseason started and there were people that actually thought Lock was going to beat out Teddy Bridgewater for the starting quarterback job?

With this game kicking off Week 18 and the Chiefs still having a shot at the No. 1 seed in the AFC (win at Broncos and Titans loss at Texans), I expect Kansas City to keep its foot on the gas vs. Denver on Saturday. Plus, the Chiefs are 2-1 ATS as double-digit favorites this season. Edge: Chiefs -10

New Orleans Saints vs. Atlanta Falcons (-4.5) Total: 40

If you know anything about NFC South football you know that the Falcons and Saints despise each other. Atlanta will not roll over vs. New Orleans this Sunday. The Falcons would like nothing more than to end the Saints season. The problem is Atlanta has a poor track record vs. New Orleans. Since 2015, the Saints are 9-3-1 ATS vs. the Falcons and when the game is played in Atlanta, the Saints are 5-0-1 ATS.

I expect Atlanta to put up a fight, but New Orleans will win and cover. Edge: Saints -4.5
