Fanatics Sportsbook Presented by PointsBet data and insights

OPENING KICKOFF: 3 p.m. ET

KEY FACTS: At +4.5, this is tied for the most points Patrick Mahomes has ever gotten in an NFL gameโ€”along with when he was a 4.5-point underdog ๐Ÿ• to the Steelers in Week 2 of the 2018 season. The Ravens have only trailed entering the fourth quarter once this season (Rams in Week 14), which is tied for the fewest games in any season since 1990.

MAKING MOVES: The spread went back and forth between Ravens -3.5 and -3 last Sunday, but it has crept up ever since. It reached Ravens -4 for the first time on Tuesday and then Ravens -4.5 on Saturday night. After the total was released at 44.5, it hasnโ€™t strayed more than a point away from the opening number. It dropped to as low as 43.5 on Tuesday and hit 45 on multiple occasions before settling back in at 44.5.

MONITORING MONEYLINE: Even with Mahomesโ€™ incredible success as an underdog, the majority of bettors like the Ravens (-210) outright. Baltimore has collected 53.3% of the tickets along with 68.2% of the handle ๐Ÿ’ต among all moneyline bets for this clash.

EXPERT PICKS

Ariel Epstein aims to continue her red-hot NFL playoffs with two best bets from Lions-49ers, while Max Meyer has his eye on a prop from Chiefs-Ravens.

THE PROP QUEEN

Lions +7.5 (-115) at 49ers [6:30 p.m. ET]
โ€œThe Lions have one of the best run defenses in football and the secondary is healthier with C.J. Gardner-Johnson returning at the end of the season. If they can limit Christian McCaffrey, theyโ€™ll keep this game close.โ€
Lions RB Jahmyr Gibbs Over 50.5 Rushing Yards (-105)
โ€œGibbs has actually run the ball better on the road, averaging 59.5 rushing yards in games away from Detroit. That includes two games against top-10 run defenses, where he reached 66 yards in both.โ€

THE SENIOR EDITOR

Ravens RB Gus Edwards Over 45.5 Rushing Yards (-110) [3 p.m. ET]
โ€œThe Chiefs defense has the lowest stuff rate against shotgun runs in the NFL. The Ravens had the second-most shotgun runs this season and Edwards is their most effective tailback out of shotgun.โ€
THE PRICE IS RIGHT

KINGS OF THE JUNGLE

MARQUEE MATCHUP: PART 2 ๐Ÿˆ

Fanatics Sportsbook Presented by PointsBet data and insights

OPENING KICKOFF: 6:30 p.m. ET

KEY FACTS: The 49ers havenโ€™t covered in any of their last six home games, which is tied for their second-worst ATS streak in the Super Bowl era (per ESPN Stats & Info). The Lions ๐Ÿฆ have gone 36-17 against the spread with Dan Campbell as head coach, the best three-year ATS stretch since the Patriots from 2016-18.

MAKING MOVES: San Francisco first briefly dipped down from -7 to -6.5 last Sunday before residing at -7 for three straight days. It hit -7.5 for the first time on Thursday night, went back to -7 on Saturday and has returned to -7.5. This total opened at 51.5, reached to as low as 50 for a few hours on Wednesday and had reached a high point of 52.

MONITORING MONEYLINE: Bettors are siding with the dog ๐Ÿพ here, just like on the spread. Detroit (+280) has reeled in 59.3% of the tickets and 50.7% of the handle among all moneyline wagers for this battle.
