Free Picks: NFL Week 18 Win Predictions 1/8/22, 1/9/22

The final week of the NFL season is upon us and there are still some playoff spots left to be decided. We went 17-8 last week picking a combination of college football bowl games and the NFL. That makes our record 417-145 (74%) for the season. We got our Lock-of-the-Week, as Wake Forest defeated Rutgers ro run our record to 12-5 in that category. Michigan made us look foolish, getting pummeled by Georgia, and our record fell to 14-10 for the season on our Upset Specials. Here are our straight up win predictions with no point spreads involved, for the final week of the regular season in the NFL.
