Sick. More football!

The Christmas Day games will conclude Week 16 with a trio of games, beginning with the Kansas City Chiefs hosting the Las Vegas Raiders.

Odds (Presented by DraftKings Sportsbook)

Spread: Chiefs -11
Over/Under: 40.5
Moneyline: Chiefs -575 / Raiders +425

The Chiefs will need to right the ship against the Raiders if they want any hope of touching the No. 1 seed. But even then, they’re going to need help in both the Baltimore Ravens and Miami Dolphins stumbling. But that would just be the Chiefs’ infamous luck, wouldn’t it?

Meanwhile, the Raiders have only a 2-percent chance of making the playoffs. If they win against the Chiefs, that jumps up to 14%.

The second matchup on the holiday is the Giants heading to play the Philadelphia Eagles. DraftKings doesn’t believe this will be close.

Spread: Eagles -14
Over/Under: 43.5
Moneyline: Eagles -900; Giants +600

I mean, what’s there to say about this dumpster matchup?

Finally, the Christmas Night Game. Ravens & 49ers.

Spread: 49ers -6
Over/Under: 46.5
Moneyline: 49ers -258; Ravens +210


The Beatdown crew are unanimous in their Christmas picks.
