Can’t believe we’re actually saying this but the final week of the 2023-24 regular season is finally here. Week 18. The last time we will see many teams until next season.
Hopefully, it’s not the last for yours.
Speaking of these teams, your New Orleans Saints (-3) are in a must win situation once again this week, this time with their rivaled Atlanta Falcons (+3). The Saints must not only win their game to make the playoffs but they must either have Tampa (-4.5) lose against Carolina (+4.5) OR Green Bay (-3) lose against Chicago (+3) AND Seattle (-3) lose to Arizona (+3). It is very much a stretch but there’s still hope. These odds were brought to you by DraftKings Sportsbook.
As far as our game picks are concerned, there is confidence from our staff that the Saints will at least secure their win, while also displaying some confidence in Carolina, Arizona and especially Chicago who seem to sweep Green Bay on our board. As it pertains to the other teams, the only other sweeps we got this week was Dallas (-13) over Washington (+13). Some of these games will be featured with backups playing in starter roles as teams have secured their positioning in the postseason but there are still a few teams fighting for seeding for sure.
It’s been a ton of fun even with the ups and downs this year, hopefully it won’t be the last time we’ll be seeing you guys on here this season. Let’s pray to the football Gods for another week of Saints football!
