There’s nothing quite like Sunday Night Football.
After watching NFL RedZone for seven hours, SNF serves as a nightcap that always has some kick to it.
Let’s take a look at the 2023 Sunday Night Football schedule and make some early SNF betting predictions for each game.

2023 Sunday Night Football Games
Week 14: Philadelphia Eagles vs Dallas Cowboys
Eagles +3 (-110) @ Cowboys -3 (-110)
Could this matchup decide the NFC East winner?
The Cowboys gained ground on the rival Eagles last week and could now pull even with Philadelphia in the standings with a primetime victory.

Dallas is unbeaten at home this season and will be eager to avenge its five-point loss to Philly on Nov. 5.
Week 15: Baltimore Ravens vs Jacksonville Jaguars
Ravens +1 (-110) @ Jaguars -1 (-110)
The Ravens and Jaguars have alternated wins and losses over their last 10 meetings, with the home team winning 8 of 10 since 2003.
Jacksonville beat Baltimore 28-27 last season, with Trevor Lawrence connecting with Zay Jones on the game-winning two-point conversion late in the fourth quarter.
It wouldn’t surprise me if the Ravens’ re-tooled offense had more success this time around.
Week 16: New England Patriots vs Denver Broncos
Patriots +2 (-110) @ Broncos -2 (-110)
This matchup feels like a better fit for Thursday night than Christmas Eve, but I guess that’s what happens when you’ve got two games on Saturday and a triple-header on Christmas Day.
- Check our our NFL Christmas Odds.
Denver was 1-4 against the spread as a home favorite last season, while New England was 2-4 as a road underdog.
I’m expecting the Broncos to get back to playing respectable football this year, which should make Mile High a tough place to play once again.
Week 17: Green Bay Packers vs Minnesota Vikings
Packers +2.5 (-110) @ Vikings -2.5 (-110)
Last year, we watched the ball drop in Times Square right as Ohio State missed a potential game-winning field-goal attempt in the College Football Playoff.
Could we get the same level of drama between these NFC North rivals on New Year’s Eve?
Week 18: TBD vs TBD
As always, the NFL’s flex scheduling will determine the Sunday Night Football Week 18 matchup, ensuring that we get a game with playoff implications to cap the regular season.
Past Sunday Night Football Odds
Week 1: Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants Cowboys -3 (-110) @ Giants +3 (-110) The 2023 Sunday Night Football slate will kick off with an NFC East showdown between the Cowboys and Giants in New York on the eve of the 22nd anniversary of the September 11 attacks. Emotions will be high, especially after Dallas won each of the two meetings between these teams last season. However, the Giants were one of the league’s top teams against the spread in 2022, so I’d lean toward taking the points with the home side.
Week 2: Miami Dolphins vs New England Patriots Dolphins -2.5 (-110) @ Patriots +2.5 (-110) These AFC East rivals split the season series in 2022, with both teams winning at home. However, New England had the benefit of playing a combination of Teddy Bridgewater and Skylar Thompson in that second meeting. As long as Tua Tagovailoa is under center, the Dolphins should be able to cover this short spread on the road.
Week 3: Pittsburgh Steelers vs Las Vegas Raiders Steelers +2.5 (-110) @ Raiders -2.5 (-110) Jimmy Garoppolo will play his first primetime game as a Raider in Week 3 when the Pittsburgh Steelers visit Sin City. Pittsburgh was 5-4 straight up on its travels in 2022 and will be looking to build on a strong finish after winning four straight and six of seven to end the year. As long as Kenny Pickett plays turnover-free football, the Steelers should win this game.
Week 4: Kansas City Chiefs vs New York Jets Chiefs -9.5 (-110) @ Jets +9.5 (-110) This should be ugly. What was originally billed as a prime-time showdown between Patrick Mahomes and Aaron Rodgers has taken on much less significance since the latter’s season-ending Achilles injury. To make matters worse, the New York Jets continue to stick by Zach Wilson and will now subject their inept backup quarterback to the eyes of the nation.
Week 5: Dallas Cowboys vs San Francisco 49ers Cowboys +3.5 (-110) @ 49ers -3.5 (-110) After meeting in the NFC playoffs each of the past two years, there is plenty of bad blood between these two teams. San Francisco won both of those contests, but will Dallas put an end to that run in Week 5? The Niners gave Dak Prescott and Tony Pollard fits in their 19-12 playoff defeat last January. I expect this SNF showdown to be another low-scoring slugfest.
Week 6: New York Giants vs Buffalo Bills Giants +15.5 (-110) @ Bills -15.5 (-110) The Giants were one of the league’s best surprises in 2022, but Tyrod Taylor and Co. are heavy underdogs in this matchup against the Bills. However, Buffalo was 3-6 against the spread last year as a home favorite, and New York was one of the league’s best ATS teams, especially as underdogs. Wink Martindale’s blitz-heavy defensive scheme will give Josh Allen the chance to exploit one-on-one matchups down the field, so I’d probably wait for the Over, but taking the points with the Giants isn’t a bad idea, either.
Week 7: Miami Dolphins vs Philadelphia Eagles Dolphins +2.5 (-110) @ Eagles -2.5 (-110) Could this be a Super Bowl preview? The Dolphins and Eagles enter this matchup with matching 5-1 marks and two of the highest-scoring offenses in the NFL. Taking the points with Miami is enticing, but it also wouldn’t be a shock to see the Eagles bounce back after their shocking loss to the Jets.
Week 8: Chicago Bears vs Los Angeles Chargers Bears +8.5 (-110) @ Chargers -8.5 (-110) The Bears may have beaten the Raiders by 18 on Sunday, but expecting them to compete with the Chargers could be a step too far. LA makes for a great teaser piece, and if pressed, I’d lay the points with Justin Herbert at home.
Week 9: Buffalo Bills vs Cincinnati Bengals Bills +3 (-110) @ Bengals -3 (-110) This should be an emotional game as the Bills return to Cincinnati, where Damar Hamlin suffered cardiac arrest during a Monday night matchup last season. Could he be back on the field and leading Buffalo out of the tunnel? Regardless, Josh Allen and Co. will have plenty of motivation for this game after falling 27-10 to the Bengals at home in the AFC Divisional Round.
Week 10: New York Jets vs Las Vegas Raiders Jets -2.5 (-110) @ Raiders +2.5 (-110) The Raiders demolished the Giants in their first game under interim head coach Antonio Pierce, but the Jets are certainly the better of the two NY teams this season. Get ready for primetime with our Thursday Night Football odds. Gang Green’s defense should make life more challenging for rookie Aidan O’Connell, so I’d take New York here before this spread gets to a field goal or more.
Week 11: Minnesota Vikings vs Denver Broncos Vikings +2 (-110) @ Broncos -2 (-110) It feels weird to say it, but these are two of the hottest teams in the NFL right now. The Broncos ride into this interconference matchup on a three-game winning streak, while Minnesota has won a league-best five straight. Joshua Dobbs has heroically lifted Minnesota back into the NFC playoff race, but this Denver team is playing at a different level right now. Back the home team at less than a field goal.
Week 12: Baltimore Ravens vs Los Angeles Chargers Ravens -4 (-110) @ Chargers +4 (-110) The Chargers have one of the league’s worst pass defenses, which could prove problematic for them at home against MVP candidate Lamar Jackson. Los Angeles needs this game to save its season, but it’s hard to see how the Chargers locker room hasn’t already given up on Brandon Staley. Despite their injuries, I’d lean toward taking the road team to win by four or more.
Week 13: Kansas City Chiefs vs Green Bay Packers Chiefs -6.5 (-110) @ Packers +6.5 (-110) In previous years, this would have been one of the season’s marquee matchups. But with Jordan Love under center for Green Bay, this contest loses a little luster. However, the Packers QB had his best game of the season on Thanksgiving, and we know the Chiefs aren’t the best at covering large spreads. This game could be closer than most people expect.
