We have a loaded slate of the NFL over Christmas Weekend. All 32 teams are in action, and only three games involve both teams out of the postseason picture as we head into Week 16. The standings could change big time with how these games come out. There is a game Thursday, of course, then a pair of games on Saturday, and a nice slate on Sunday. Monday, which is Christmas Day, will feature a trio of games. Let’s take a look at our favorite five games on a loaded slate of National Football League betting over Christmas Weekend:
Arizona Cardinals +4 at Chicago Bears; 44.5
The local Arizona Cardinals get a trip across the country in cold Chicago on Christmas Eve. The Bears are coming off a blown lead, and a loss to Cleveland in Week 15. It was the end of the postseason chances as they knew it. Justin Fields has been solid, but still struggles to throw the football consistently. The Cardinals actually have a decent chance to grab a win here on the road. Chicago is not much better than the Cardinals, and Kyler Murray can find a way to beat the Chicago defense. Do not be surprised if Arizona goes on the road and ruins the Bears Christmas on Sunday afternoon.
Buffalo Bills -12 at Los Angeles Chargers; 43.5
Stop the count! Not a fair fight! The Buffalo Bills, if they want to garner all their motivation and momentum should win this game, and win it easily. The Bills, with Josh Allen under center, are seeking their third straight, and ninth of the season. Buffalo, who was a Super Bowl contender to start the season, and on life support in the middle of the season may be finding their stride. They should have no issue with a Chargers team that quit last week, only to have their head coach fired. Now, will look to get back on track on a Saturday primetime game. Buffalo is going to roll in this game, and see what happens the rest of the weekend to see where they stand in playoff positioning.
Seattle Seahawks -3 at Tennessee Titans; 41.5
Seattle came away with one of the most thrilling wins of the weekend on Monday Night Football. Their come from behind win over the Eagles was legendary, and may have sprung them into a playoff spot. The Seahawks have three winnable games left. They will need to run the table, as they are struggling for tiebreakers against the contending teams. Geno Smith should be back, but do they go with him or stick with Drew Lock? The Titans are pesky, but are having a terrible time getting Derrick Henry going for sustained production. Tennessee, also, likely will be without Will Levins. The Seahawks win this one on the road.
Kansas City Chiefs -10 vs. Las Vegas Raiders; 41.5
The last time these two teams met, the Raiders started hot and put a little scare into the Chiefs. But, then it was all Kansas City. The Raiders are coming off their big win over the Chargers, but now are going to face a defense hungry and willing to try. Aidan O’Connell is going to struggle in this game against a solid Kansas City defense. The defending Super Bowl Champions grab their 10th win of the season by the same score as the first meeting. 31-17 Chiefs over Raiders. This is the first of three Christmas Day games!
San Francisco 49ers -5.5 vs. Baltimore Ravens; 46.5
The final game of the weekend could be the best game of the weekend. It could be the best game of the entire season. The 49ers, with 11 wins, and leading the NFC against the Ravens, with 11 wins and leading the AFC. The 49ers, who have won six straight against the Ravens, who have won four straight. A potential Super Bowl preview? The 49ers are at home, and are red hot. Look for them to stay red-hot. They hardly ever NOT score 30+. They do it again and beat the Ravens by two touchdowns. 49ers 31-17 over the Ravens.
There you have it. Those are our top games to bet this weekend at your favorite Arizona sportsbook, Christmas Weekend, in the National Football League. Enjoy the games and Happy Holidays!
