CHRISTMAS CLASHES

ACTION REPORT ๐Ÿ“Š

Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs haven't been reliable as big favorites of late, going 10-17 against the spread in their last 27 games laying at least a touchdown.

The NFL has given us three gifts on Christmas ๐ŸŽ„, including a matchup between the two teams with the best Super Bowl odds as the nightcap. Letโ€™s take a look at the odds and action for each of them.

Raiders at Chiefs [1 p.m. ET]
SPREAD: Opened Chiefs -10.5, now Chiefs -10.5
ACTION: Chiefs 51.2% tickets, 61.5% handle
BOTTOM LINE: The Raiders became the 1oth NFL team to score 60+ points since 1970. Excluding the 1972 Bengals since they did it in their season finale, the other eight teams went 0-8 against the spread and 1-7 straight up in their following game ๐Ÿ˜ฎ (per Action Network).

Giants at Eagles [4:30 p.m. ET]
SPREAD: Opened Eagles -10.5, now Eagles -13.5
ACTION: Eagles 58.3% tickets, 67.7% handle
BOTTOM LINE: The most popular player prop by handle ๐Ÿ’ต for this NFC East showdown is Boston Scott anytime touchdown. Scott to score a TD was first posted at +1200 odds and has crashed all the way down to +300. Eleven of Scott’s 20 career scores have come against the Giants.

Ravens at 49ers [8:15 p.m. ET]
SPREAD: Opened 49ers -4, now 49ers -6
ACTION: Ravens 64.8% tickets, 75.3% handle
BOTTOM LINE: Will this contest decide the NFL MVP race? Brock Purdy is the -250 favorite and Lamar Jackson is the second choice at +400, while no other player has single-digit odds.

EXPERT PICKS

Want two more gifts for Christmas? Ryan Leaf and Max Meyer each have their favorite NFL play for today's slate.

THE SIGNAL-CALLER

Chiefs RB Isiah Pacheco Under 15.5 Rushing Attempts (-110) [1 p.m. ET]
โ€œHe is coming back from a shoulder injury, but Clyde Edwards-Helaire filled in admirably while Pacheco was out. I think the two split carries today with the Chiefs wanting to keep Pacheco healthy for the playoffs.โ€

THE SENIOR EDITOR

Ravens +6 (-110) at 49ers [8:15 p.m. ET]
โ€œThe 49ers will be without Arik Armstead while Javon Hargrave is questionable. Without those two DL last game, San Francisco allowed 7.8 yards per carry to the Cardinals. Good luck slowing down Baltimoreโ€™s rushing attack.โ€

ACTION REPORT PART 2 ๐Ÿ“Š

One Indiana bettor placed $13,554 on Jalen Brunson to score 20+ points against the Bucks (-800) for a total potential payout of $15,248.25, the biggest player prop bet placed for today's NBA Christmas slate.

Even with three NFL games today, we promise we didn’t forget about the NBA ๐Ÿ€. Here are the most popular plays for the five-game Christmas slate on the hardwood.

Most Spread Tickets: Bucks (opened -3, now -3.5 at Knicks)

Underdog With Most Moneyline Handle: Knicks, now +130 vs. Bucks

ACTION JACKSON

TREND IS YOUR FRIEND ๐Ÿˆ

At +6 against the 49ers, the Ravens are getting the second-most points in any game with Lamar Jackson starting.

It’s not too often that we get the chance to bet Lamar Jackson as an underdog. But when we do, he pretty much always comes through ๐Ÿ’ฐ.

Jackson and the Ravens are currently +6 against the 49ers in San Francisco tonight. In Jackson’s 13 career contests in which Baltimore has closed as an underdog, he’s 11-1-1 against the spread. The only time he hasn’t covered in this spot was when the Ravens lost 33-28 to the Chiefs in 2019 as 4.5-point dogs.
