NFL Week 18 score predictions: Model projections for Packers vs. Bears, Dolphins vs. Bills and more

Here are my game projections for the NFL’s Week 18. If you’re new to this series, I project the score for every game and the chance of victory for every team using my NFL betting model. The model phases out older data and uses data from this year as the season progresses.

My NFL betting model takes in a flurry of different metrics and creates a projection for each team. Those projections are then used to project a spread and total for each game. My model can find the chance a game covers the spread or total. I use an “edge threshold” to determine what to bet on.

If there is another game with an edge and there is no bet, it’s likely because of an injury or some other circumstance that I’m not confident my model can capture.

If you have any questions, please let me know in the comments, and I’ll respond as soon as possible.
