All Week 18 NFL lines are listed below, and SportsLine’s advanced data model has all the NFL betting tips and predictions you need to make the best Week 18 NFL picks now.

The model, which simulates each NFL play 10,000 times, has gone up well over $7,000 for $100 bets on top-ranked NFL picks since its inception. The model enters Week 18 of the 2022 NFL season on an incredible 160-113 run on top-ranked NFL picks dating back to the 2017 season. It’s also on a 14-6 roll on top-ranked NFL picks since Week 7 of this season.

The model was ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past six years on direct NFL picks and beat more than 94% of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Everyone who has followed it is way up.

Now, it has turned its attention to the last week 18 NFL odds and locked in NFL picks for every NFL game. Go here to see each selection.

Top Week 18 NFL Predictions

One of the model’s strongest Week 18 NFL picks is the Seahawks (-6) covering the spread at home against the Rams. Seattle began the season with a 6-3 record and led the NFC West at the halfway mark. But losses in five of six saw them disappear in the division race, and now they need a win and help clinch an NFC Wild Card berth.

Now they will take on a Rams team with nothing to play for. After a 2-1 start, the defending Super Bowl champions have lost 10 of 13 and are coming off a 31-10 loss to the Chargers in the Battle of SoFi Stadium last week.

The Rams allowed the Chargers to rush for 192 yards in the loss, and now they have Kenneth Walker III to contend with. The rookie running back has rushed for 100 yards or more in back-to-back weeks and is now 64 yards shy of 1,000 despite starting the season as a second-string back. The model says he’ll be just shy of that milestone, but predicts he’ll score his 10th rushing touchdown to help Seattle cover over 50% of the simulations. See which other teams to choose here.

Top Week 18 NFL Survivor Picks

The model’s Week 18 NFL knockout pool picks say to avoid the Buccaneers, even though they have beaten their Week 18 opponent, Atlanta, five straight times. Tampa coach Todd Bowles said he plans to play the starters despite the Bucs being locked into the No. 4 seed. But Bowles didn’t say he planned to play them the entire game, and there’s no reason to consider the risk of injury. Tom Brady was sacked three times last week, and Bowles certainly doesn’t want to expose him to any more hits, so expect Brady’s stay on the field to be short.

The Falcons won last week and would like to keep the momentum going heading into the offseason. Atlanta also has the motivation to want to end the five-game losing streak to the Bucs, which predates Brady’s arrival in Tampa. You don’t want your final knockout pick to be spent on a team with little incentive, so the model recommends avoiding the Buccaneers in Week 18 NFL survivor pools.

Top Week 18 NFL office pool picks

One of the strongest Week 18 NFL football pool picks from the model is the 49ers beating the Cardinals. San Francisco is still alive to earn the top seed in the NFC playoffs, while Arizona has lost six straight games and is eliminated from the playoffs. The 49ers were double-digit favorites in their 38-10 win against Arizona two months ago in Glendale.

Arizona had to use its fourth starting quarterback in as many games last week when David Blough stepped in for Colt McCoy. The Cardinals haven’t been able to overcome their quarterback carousel, and have been held under 20 points in four straight games and five of their last six. They have lost seven of their last eight games against NFC West teams, which is one reason the model loves San Francisco to win in blowout fashion on Sunday. See which other teams to choose here.
