Most popular bets for final week of NFL regular season

Wondering which bets you would want to place for NFL Week 18 if sports betting in Massachusetts was already live?

Bet365 traders released the sportsbook’s most-placed moneyline, spread, and prop bets ahead of the final games of the NFL regular season on Saturday and Sunday. A majority of the wagers involve teams with playoff berths on the line.

Most Popular Moneyline Bets

  • Philadelphia Eagles (-900) vs. New York Giants
  • Cincinnati Bengals (-320) vs. Baltimore Ravens
  • Jacksonville Jaguars (-270) vs. Tennessee Titans
  • Green Bay Packers (-225) vs. Detroit Lions

The Eagles will claim the No. 1 seed in the NFC if they win, so they’ve got plenty to play for. And it’s looking like Jalen Hurts will be back, which is excellent news for Philadelphia backers.

The Bengals and Ravens are playing for playoff positioning, while Jacksonville, Tennessee, Green Bay, and Detroit are all playing for their playoff lives.

Bet365 currently gives New England +260 odds to beat Buffalo on Sunday. If the Patriots win, they will make the playoffs.

Most Popular Spread Bets

  • Jacksonville Jaguars (-6) vs. Tennessee Titans
  • Cincinnati Bengals (-7) vs. Baltimore Ravens
  • Dallas Cowboys (-7.5) at Washington Commanders
  • Detroit Lions (+4.5) at Green Bay Packers
  • Green Bay Packers (-4.5) vs. Detroit Lions

Interestingly, bettors are flocking to both sides of the pivotal Green Bay vs. Detroit matchup on Sunday Night Football. It’s a must-win game for both teams. If the Packers win, they’re in the playoffs. If the Lions win, they need the Seahawks to lose.

Bet365 has the Patriots as +7 underdogs in Buffalo.

Most Popular Player Prop Bets

  • Jaguars RB Travis Etienne anytime TD scorer (-105)
  • Titans RB Derrick Henry anytime TD scorer (-110)
  • Jaguars TE Evan Engram over 45.5 receiving yards (-110)
  • Jaguars QB Trevor Lawrence over 252.5 passing yards (-110)

All four of the most popular player props come from Jacksonville vs. Tennessee. The winner of that game wins the AFC South and gets the No. 4 seed in the AFC playoffs.  The Jaguars can lose and still make the playoffs, but the chances would be slim. Tennessee would be eliminated if it loses.
