NFL Christmas Odds 2023

Last Updated: May 24, 2023

Creatures are stirring for NFL action ahead of the Christmas 2023 slate.

We have an NFL Monday triple-header wrapped up and tucked away under the Christmas tree. Matchups featuring Jimmy Garoppolo, Patrick Mahomes, Daniel Jones, Jalen Hurts, Lamar Jackson, and whichever quarterback emerges in San Francisco.

Here are the current NFL betting lines for the 2023 Christmas Day games.

Christmas NFL Games

Las Vegas Raiders @ Kansas City Chiefs (1 p.m. ET)

Raiders +8.5 (-110) @ Chiefs -8.5 (-110)

The festivities begin with an AFC West clash at Arrowhead Stadium where the Chiefs open as big favorites. Kansas City, the No. 1 ranked offense in our offense power rankings, has won 10 of the last 11 matchups.

Mahomes has at least four TD passes in his 10 career games and just two with fewer than 250 passing yards against Las Vegas. Last season in the first of two matchups against Las Vegas, Travis Kelce posted an absurd 7-25-4 stat line.

The Raiders desperately need Garoppolo and Davante Adams to click this season. Expect the Chiefs to win but fail to cover the spread.

New York Giants @ Philadelphia Eagles (4:30 p.m. ET)

Giants +7 (-110) @ Eagles -7 (-110)

New York travels to Lincoln Financial Field to play the Eagles. Hopefully, the Eagles don’t throw any snowballs at Santa this year.

The difference maker for the Giants has to be Saquon Barkley. New York went 5-1 last year in games where Barkley had at least 20 carries.

A.J. Brown and DeVonta Smith, the Eagles’ dynamic duo at wide receiver, accounted for 61.7% of the team’s receiving yards (2,692 of 4,364) and 72% of the receiving touchdowns (18 of 25). With better defensive play, the Giants cover the spread by keeping this one close in a tight loss.

Baltimore Ravens @ San Francisco 49ers (8:15 p.m. ET)

Ravens +3 (-110) @ 49ers -3 (-110)

The 49ers’ swarming defense gives the entire league fits, but the same can be said about Lamar Jackson. Despite missing five games in each of his last two seasons, LJ8 rushed for over 1,500 yards.

San Francisco, ranked No. 1 in our defense power rankings, plays a smash-mouth style of defense; one that intercepted 20 passes (tied for 1st), forced 16 fumbles (tied for 5th), and generated 44 sacks (tied for 10th). Fred Warner and Dre Greenlaw, the 49ers’ top linebackers, will be tasked to shadow Jackson and keep him in check.

Two excellent defenses make this a tough game to call. It’s possible the 49ers win but fail to cover the spread. Expect a Justin Tucker field goal to push Baltimore to a last-second victory.
