Week 3: Denver Broncos 11, San Francisco 49ers 10
Jimmy Garoppolo led a 75-yard scoring drive to give the 49ers a 7-0 lead.

San Francisco failed to cover as a 1.5-point favorite, while the total went very far under the 45-point bar.
Week 4: Kansas City Chiefs 41, Tampa Bay Buccaneers 31

The Chiefs covered as two-point favorites, with the total going over the 47-point line.

Baltimore failed to cover as a three-point home favorite, while the under was the correct call on the 47.5-point total.
Week 6: Philadelphia Eagles 26, Dallas Cowboys 17

Philadelphia covered as a seven-point home favorite, with the total just creeping over the 42.5-point line.
Week 7: Miami Dolphins 16, Pittsburgh Steelers 10

Week 12: Philadelphia Eagles 40, Green Bay Packers 33
The Packers visited Philadelphia as pretty sizable underdogs, but they quickly demonstrated that they would be anything but pushovers while battling to a 14-13 lead at the end of the first quarter. The clubs went back and forth the rest of the way, but the Eagles would prove to be too much for Green Bay to handle. Philadelphia just hit the cover as 6.5-point favorites, while the total was well over the 46-point benchmark.
Week 13: Dallas Cowboys 54, Indianapolis Colts 19
Through three quarters of play, this was actually a competitive game. Dallas held a 21-19 lead heading into the fourth quarter. For the final frame, however, the Cowboys exploded for 33 points to exit with a convincing 35-point victory, easily covering as 11-point home favorites. The over/under for the game was 44.5 points.

The Giants covered as a four-point road dog with the total going under the 40-point line.
Week 16: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 19, Arizona Cardinals 16 (OT)
The Buccaneers were 7.5-point favorites for the trip to Arizona to face a team that was on its third starting QB of the season, but the hosts had other ideas. The Cardinals held a late lead before the Bucs tied it up to head to overtime, where a 40-yard field goal served as the game-winner. Arizona got the cover as home dogs and under was the right call on the 41.5-point total.
Week 17: Pittsburgh Steelers 16, Baltimore Ravens 13
At kickoff, the Ravens were one-point favorites. Baltimore held a 13-3 lead in the third quarter, but Pittsburgh managed to take control of the game from there. A pair of Chris Boswell field goals closed the gap, and Kenny Pickett hit Najee Harris for a game-winning score with less than a minute to go for a three-point Steelers victory. Pittsburgh got the cover with the total ending up under the 35.5-point bar.
Week 18: Detroit Lions 20, Green Bay Packers 16
The Packers were at home with a chance to lock up the NFC’s final playoff spot with a victory.

The Lions got the cover as a four-point underdog, while under was the right call on the 48-point game-time line.
Other ways to bet on Sunday Night Football
In addition to the above, there are other ways to get in on the Sunday Night Football action throughout the season. Here are some popular options:
- Same-game parlays: These bets let you take your chances at even greater returns. For same-game parlays, you add multiple picks to the same slip, such as a spread plus a total and a prop, with the odds based on your choices. If all of your picks are correct, you win, but a single wrong pick means the whole parlay loses.
- In-play betting: Once Sunday Night Football kicks off, the betting doesn’t have to stop. Live betting means you can bet right along as the action plays out on the field. The odds and lines will shift frequently and quickly, with plenty of options throughout the game. This includes new spreads, totals, props, and more.
- Alternate lines: You can go beyond the main spreads and totals to find numbers that you’re more comfortable with. There will be a host of alternate lines, ranging from an extra half-point to 10+, all of which will influence the odds based on how much risk or safety you’re adding by moving the line.
In addition to betting on SNF by itself, you can also use the game as part of multi-leg parlays for the NFL week. For example, you could use SNF as the capper for the full Sunday slate of games, or try your luck with tying together the results of Thursday Night Football and Monday Night Football.
