Chiefs @ Bengals BEST BET: Over 49 Total Points (-110)

Wager: 1 Unit

Both of these teams scored 35+ points in Week 16 en route to significant victories. The Chiefs thrashed the Steelers 36-10 to clinch the AFC West for the sixth straight season, while the Bengals routed the Ravens 41-21 to claim sole possession of the AFC North lead.

The job is far from done for either, though, as Kansas City will still be playing for a first-round bye, while Cincinnati still hasn’t even clinched a playoff berth in a crowded AFC.

Joe Burrow is coming off arguably his best game as a pro, throwing for 525 yards and four touchdowns, while Patrick Mahomes is rounding into form and should get Travis Kelce back next week. Despite how well Kansas City’s defense has played in recent weeks, this contest has the potential for fireworks.

While this line quickly got bet up from 47.5 to 49, I’m still backing the Over as my NFL bet of the day.

  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 45.5 (-110), Under 45.5 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Chargers 25.75, Broncos 19.75

Broncos @ Chargers BEST BET: Chargers -6 (-110)

Wager: 1 Unit

This is a perfect buy-low spot on the Chargers, who are coming off an embarrassing 41-29 road defeat to the Davis Mills-led Houston Texans.

Los Angeles has now lost two straight games and will need to have this one at home in order to have a chance at reaching the postseason. Justin Herbert should hopefully get some of his weapons back from the COVID/reserve list, including Austin EkelerMike Williams, and Jalen Guyton.

Meanwhile, the Broncos dropped a 17-13 contest to the rival Raiders in Week 16, essentially ending any outside shot at a postseason berth. Drew Lock showed once again that he’s not the long-term answer at quarterback that John Elway hoped he’d be, and Teddy Bridgewater remains in concussion protocol.

No matter who starts at quarterback next week for Denver, I expect the Los Angeles to get a much-needed win here. With the spread opening at less than seven, according to our NFL gameday odds, the Chargers are the play here.

Houston Texans @ San Francisco 49ers (4:05 p.m. ET)

  • Moneyline: Texans (+700) @ 49ers (-1100)
  • Spread: Texans +15 (-110) @ 49ers -15 (-110)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 45 (-110), Under 45 (-110)
  • Implied Score: 49ers 30, Texans 15

Arizona Cardinals @ Dallas Cowboys (4:25 p.m. ET, FOX Bet)

  • Moneyline: Cardinals (+150) @ Cowboys (-175)
  • Spread: Cardinals +3 (+100) @ Cowboys -3 (-118)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 50 (-110), Under 50 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Cowboys 26.5, Cardinals 23.5

Detroit Lions @ Seattle Seahawks (4:25 p.m. ET)

  • Moneyline: Lions (+300) @ Seahawks (-380)
  • Spread: Lions +8 (-115) @ Seahawks -8 (-105)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 42.5 (-110), Under 42.5 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Seahawks 25.25, Lions 17.25

Lions @ Seahawks BEST BET: Lions +8 (-115)

Wager: 1 Unit

Sure, the Lions aren’t the strongest opposition, but the Seahawks shouldn’t be eight-point favorites against anyone right now. Seattle just threw away a 10-point, fourth-quarter lead to lose 25-24 to the Nick Foles-led Chicago Bears.

Talk about embarrassing.

Meanwhile, the Lions kept things close against the Falcons with Tim Boyle under center, though, Jared Goff could return from the COVID/reserve list next week. Goff has actually played well in his last three games, throwing for 727 yards, 7 touchdowns, and just two interceptions.

The only hesitation here is that this could be Russell Wilson‘s last game in Seattle as a Seahawk before a potential offseason move elsewhere, but there’s just no denying that we haven’t seen the Russ of old this season.

This game certainly won’t be pretty, but I think this is too many points here for Seattle to cover.

Los Angeles Rams @ Baltimore Ravens (4:25 p.m. ET)

  • Moneyline: Rams (-160) @ Ravens (+140)
  • Spread: Rams -3 (-105) @ Ravens +3 (-115)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 45.5 (-110), Under 45.5 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Rams 24.25, Ravens 21.25

Minnesota Vikings @ Green Bay Packers (Sunday Night Football, 8:20 p.m. ET)

  • Moneyline: Vikings (+240) @ Packers (-300)
  • Spread: Vikings +7 (-120) @ Packers -7 (+100)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 48 (-110), Under 47 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Packers 27.5, Vikings 20.5

Cleveland Browns @ Pittsburgh Steelers (Monday Night Football, 8:15 p.m. ET)

  • Moneyline: Browns (-160) @ Steelers (+140)
  • Spread: Browns -3 (-105) @ Steelers +3 (-115)
  • Over/Under Points Total: Over 40.5 (-110), Under 40.5 (-110)
  • Implied Score: Browns 21.75, Steelers 18.75
