Pennsylvania Online Casinos Exceed $4 Billion In Lifetime Revenue

PA online casino revenue surpassed $4 billion in lifetime earnings following another stellar month in February.

February was a milestone month for online casino gaming in PA. The Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board announced that PA online casino operators recorded $162.3 million in gross gaming revenue (GGR) last month. This brings Pennsylvania’s lifetime online casino revenue total to more than $4 billion, making it the second state in the nation to reach that feat, alongside New Jersey.

Online slots remain casinos’ bread and butter, accounting for almost $3 billion of all lifetime revenue (73.7%). The remainder comes from table games, which brought in $951.9 million, and poker, which accounts for $112 million of PA’s online GGR.

February’s revenue was also the second-highest in the state’s online casino history, which dates back to 2019. Only December 2022’s $166.9 million tops it.

PA online casinos continue revenue momentum since October

February’s numbers mark the second straight month in which GGR surpassed $160 million and the fifth consecutive month exceeding $150 million. February revenue was nearly $2 million more than in January, representing 1.2% month-over-month growth.

Year-over-year increases were even greater, with revenue increasing 31.2% over last February. At that time, the $123.7 million in GGR was the third-highest monthly total up to that point. Last year was a period of overall growth for online casinos in PA, a trend that is continuing into 2023 so far.

Hollywood Penn National leads the charge in February

Pennsylvania’s online casino industry continues to grow because of operators like the leading Hollywood Penn National. Penn National leads the state with $1.46 billion in lifetime GGR.

Penn’s brands, including BetMGM Casino, Hollywood, DraftKingsPointsBet and Barstool, combined for almost $70 million in total GGR in February. Together, they led the state in slot revenue ($52.7 million) and table games revenue ($16.7 million).

Rivers has also generated over $1 billion in lifetime GGR through its BetRivers Casino, SugarHouse and Borgata brands, good for second all-time in PA. It maintained that position in February, recording $33.3 million in GGR, nearly all from slots.

Valley Forge (FanDuel, Stardust) came within $1.3 million of passing Rivers, though both online casinos experienced slight decreases in GGR MoM. Every casino further down the list did better in February than in January, except for Mohegan Pennsylvania and Presque Isle Downs.

Overall PA gaming revenue grew 21.6% across all verticals

As impressive as online casino growth is, it’s only one component of the overall gambling picture in the Keystone State. 

Total gaming numbers reached $456.8 million in adjusted gross revenue (AGR) across all retail and online verticals. This showed a 21.6% YoY increase from $375.7 million in February 2022.

Retail slots led the way with $202.8 million in AGR, followed by online slots ($92.8 million) and retail table games ($74.5 million). Parx Casino topped all operators in the state for retail slot and table games revenue, ahead of Wind Creek in both categories.

Three more PA online casino apps coming soon

Pennsylvania online casinos will soon see three new apps enter the playing field. The increased competition will create more opportunities for players, while operators look to lock down as much action as possible.

PlayStar Casino, Golden Nugget and Bally Casino are expected to open their virtual doors sometime this year, though no official launch dates exist yet.

The continued growth of online casinos suggests that the state has not reached the tax revenue ceiling from the industry. New operators will begin to carve out their own markets, but existing operators will likely face more competition in coming months and years.

The effect it will have on the online casino market as a whole remains to be seen.

PA Gaming Revenue Grows Again With $464.5 Million Earned In January

PA gaming revenue beat out New Jersey again for January, bringing in $464.5 million, an 18.15% jump up from last year.

Pennsylvania casinos reported $464.5 million in total gaming revenue in January, as announced by the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. Though revenue fell short of December’s $475 million record, it was still enough to claim the No. 2 spot in state history.

Monthly adjusted gross revenue (AGR) increased by 18.15% year-over-year, fueled by gains in every major vertical:

  • Retail casinos: $286.2 million (+16% YoY)
  • iGaming: $133.2 million (+22.91% YoY)
  • Sports wagering: $39.3 million (+22.01% YoY)

Pennsylvania holds off New Jersey for second in the US

The Garden State may have a longer gambling history, but PA casinos have generated more revenue than New Jersey’s in 10 of the last 11 years.

Casinos in the Keystone State first surpassed $3 billion in gross gaming revenue (GGR) in 2012, edging out New Jersey by $60,000. It started an eight-year run above $3 billion, before 2020 shut down retail casino operations for several months and caused GGR to dip to $2.65 billion.

On the other hand, New Jersey dipped below $3 billion in GGR after 2012 and did not get above that mark until 2019. It did surpass PA in 2020 with $2.88 billion.

Since recovering from the pandemic, both states have set new records, with online casino contributions increasing steadily.

In 2021, Pennsylvania ($4.83 billion in GGR) edged out New Jersey ($4.74 billion) by less than $100,000. That gap narrowed to just $28,000 in 2022, as both states reported $5.21 billion in GGR.

Atlantic City’s recent recovery could help New Jersey regain its former spot. Either way, both states are nowhere near Nevada’s $13.5 billion GGR from 2022, so second place will have to do.

PA casino retail slots break $200 million in revenue for first time

Slots accounted for $202.2 million of retail casinos’ $286.2 million AGR in January, setting a monthly record and marking the first $200 million month ever recorded. Revenue grew 2.1% from December’s $198 million, and 20% YoY.

Impressively, iGaming verticals grew even more. Online table games saw a nearly 21% YoY increase in AGR and online slots over 25%.

Sports wagering also impressed in 2022, outpacing every vertical except online slots. More than 90% of its revenue comes from PA online sportsbooks

PA casinos January revenue breakdown

  • Retail slots: $202.2 million (+20.07% YoY)
  • Online slots: $90.2 million (+25.57% YoY)
  • Retail table games: $83.9 million (+7.27% YoY)
  • Online table games: $40 million (+20.97% YoY)
  • Sports wagering: $39.3 million (+22.01% YoY)

PA online slots outperform retail table games

While retail slots continue to reign supreme, online slots in PA are entrenching themselves as the second-highest revenue generator. 

January was the fourth straight month where online slots surpassed retail table games in AGR.

A year ago, retail table games revenue was $78.2 million, compared to online slots’ $71.8 million. Despite steady growth, retail table games have been unable to keep up with online slots.

Still, overall growth on the retail side shows that it can carry its weight as iGaming continues setting new highs.

Revenue growth at PA online casinos

PA continues to set the bar for the online casino industry in the US, finishing above New Jersey in both online casino revenue ($1.67 billion) and taxes ($508.4 million) in 2022.

PA online casinos are still on the up and up, with January’s $160.3 million in GGR representing 23.3% yearly growth

For more perspective, last January’s $130 million in GGR set a new record. This January’s total fell about $6.6 million short of the current record of $166.9 million from December.

iGaming revenue has now topped $160 million for two straight months and $150 million for four. This has resulted in at least $46 million in taxes to the state every month since October, as online slots are taxed at 54%.

Since becoming legal in July 2019, online casino revenue went from a virtual non-factor to one of the state’s primary contributors.

Annual PA online casino revenue since 2019

  • 2019: $39.3 million
  • 2020: $717.2 million
  • 2021: $1.29 billion
  • 2022: $1.67 billion

If January is any sign of what’s to come in 2023, that trend could continue upward to bring $2 billion into focus.

Can New Parx Shippensburg Compete With Nearby Hollywood Casinos?

Parx management says their new PA mini-casino in Shippensburg will stand out among the three casinos existing within an hour drive.

A new mini casino is now open in Shippensburg. Parx Casino held their ribbon-cutting on February 3, becoming the 17th retail casino in Pennsylvania. The new location is Parx’s second PA casino.

Parx Shippensburg boasts 73,000 square feet of gaming space with 500 slot machines, 48 electronic table games, a sportsbook and a 100-seat restaurant with a full bar.

The new casino opens in a part of the state that already has two Hollywood casinos an hour away. It comes with the reputation of Parx’s primary property in Bensalem, but will need to hit the ground running in a competitive market nonetheless.

Shippensburg manager believes Parx will stand out

Through the years, Parx Casino has established itself as a top operator in the state, holding their own among household industry names like Harrah’s, Hollywood and Live! Casinos.

In an interview with PlayPennsylvania, General Manager Kevin Brady cited several reasons for their success.

“We have great fundamentals, great training, great culture and great ownership and we brought that to Shippensburg. We firmly believe as an organization that our employees make the difference between us and our competition.”

Another difference between Parx and the competition is Parx Shippensburg will be smoke-free throughout the interior of the property. In Bensalem, Parx ownership opted to keep a no-smoking policy in place after COVID-related mask mandates ended in June 2021. The move was welcomed by employees, customers and even some smokers according to Parx Chief Marketing Officer Marc Oppenheimer.

He told PlayPennsylvania:

“We’ve seen two things from it. No. 1, it has not hurt us business and revenue wise at all and No. 2, our employees are very, very happy to not be working in an environment with secondhand smoke all the time.”

Parx is confident in Shippensburg location

Both Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course and Hollywood Casino York sit roughly an hour’s drive from Parx Shippensburg. So far, the market in the area has supported the two well.

The Harrisburg-Carlisle metropolitan area has 600,000 residents, and York County has another 450,000, creating large enough markets for the operating casinos.

According to Oppenheimer, roughly 500,000 people live within a 25- to 30-mile radius of Parx Shippensburg. That only cuts into half the distance between it and either Hollywood property.

Still, Oppenheimer expects their customer base to include patrons of the Hollywood casinos. Acknowledging this, Parx is offering a tier match program for loyalty members of other casinos. Mychoice or other rewards card holders will have their Parx loyalty card elevated to the equivalent level.

“If someone comes in and brings us a high tier card from any of the other players, we’ll match them into that tier with us,” Oppenheimer said.

In addition, Oppenheimer sites the existing building’s infrastructure, ample parking and easy access from I-81 as contributing factors that set the Shippensburg location up for success.

“All of the different factors came together that told us this location makes a lot of sense,” he said.

Will another mini casino put a dent in Hollywood’s revenue?

Even though all three casinos can conceivably exist, Parx Shippensburg will still challenge the two Hollywood casino properties to maintain their recent growth.

Since opening in August 2021, Hollywood York has steadily increased its slot revenue from around $5 million monthly to well over $6 million while making an additional $1.2 to $1.6 million each month from table games. But some of that mini-casino’s success seemingly cut into Hollywood Penn National’s bottom line, though the size of the revenue pie is growing.

Penn National had monthly revenue figures of around $16 million from slots and $3 million from table games before the pandemic. After the York property opened, those numbers dropped to about $13 million and $2 million, respectively. Obviously, plenty of other factors could have contributed to those dips as well.

The new Parx is the smallest of the three in terms of square footage and number of slots. It also lacks live table games for the time being. Only time will tell what effect Parx will have on the nearby casinos’ revenues.

Caesars Casino PA Grows AGS Partnership To Launch New Online Slots

An expanded partnership with AGS brings 30 new land-based slot titles to the Caesars online casino app in PA.

Caesars Casino recently doubled down on a partnership with PlayAGS, Inc., a top global casino game supplier, to bring more than 30 new slot titles to players. 

The Caesars PA platform just expanded its game library, giving Pennsylvania online casino players even more exciting options at their fingertips.

New games needed to bolster Caesars PA market share

These games will only be available to players in Pennsylvania and New Jersey for now. AGS Senior Vice President and GM of Interactive, Gary Hardy, said in a press release that new markets would follow in the coming months, adding: 

“We are absolutely delighted to have the opportunity to deepen our relationship with Caesars, one of the world’s most high-profile casino brands. Our growing portfolio of player-favorite game themes and track record of delivering consistent game performance should only help to further cement Caesars’ position as a leading operator in the North American RMG market.”

In joining forces with Caesars, AGS expands its authority within the industry. Meanwhile, Caesars looks to grow its footprint within the ultra-competitive PA online casino market.

Caesars expects big results from the expanded partnership

The press release refers to the new AGS titles as “high-performing” games that will “turbocharge the operator’s online real-money gaming (“RMG”) operations.”

AGS’ interactive game library includes online versions of their proven land-based slots, like Capital Gains, Rakin’ Bacon!, Golden Wins Deluxe and Tiger Lord

Caesars Digital Senior Vice President of iGaming, Mathew Sunderland, said AGS’ track record shows promise for the new games at Caesars.

“AGS games are an exciting addition to our collection of online casino games. We anticipate this new content to be popular among our players given its successful track record for performing well both online and in brick-and-mortar casinos.”

As the partnership expands, players in Pennsylvania can look forward to more AGS games throughout the year.

Caesars is a big name nationally, but a relatively small player in PA

Caesars Casino is partnered with licensee Harrah’s Philadelphia for its PA online casino. Harrah’s ranked sixth of 10 in Gross Gaming Revenue (GGR) in 2022 with $44.2 million

However, the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board (PGCB) does not breakdown individual casino operator revenue figures from each licensee. Several licensees have three-to-five casino operators under their umbrellas, meaning Caesars is not necessarily in the bottom half of the state’s casino operators.

Lifetime, Caesars has generated $81 million in GGR since launching in March 2020, seventh out of 10 in the standings. It was the ninth online casino to open, eight months after the first casinos went live in July 2019. Its overall GGR represents 2.2% of Pennsylvania’s $3.72 billion in lifetime online casino revenue.

In 2022, Caesars represented nearly 2.5% of Pennsylvania’s total $1.67 billion in online casino GGR. It had a 2.2% market share in 2021, meaning it gained 0.3% of the total year-over-year.

Caesars Casino growth is a good bet in a thriving PA market

While Caesars grew slightly in 2022, the top three licensees increased their market share by 8%. Caesars is among the biggest names in the industry, but it needs to keep making moves if it wants to keep up with the likes of BetMGM, FanDuel and DraftKings.

Caesars recorded the following GGR in each of its first three years, showing significant growth in that time:

  • 2020: $8.4 million
  • 2021: $28.5 million
  • 2022: $44.2 million

There’s still room for growth in Pennsylvania’s online casino market that just posted record yearly revenue numbers again. If Caesars can continue its upward trend over the next several years, it’ll have a nice slice of the pie.

Boyd Interactive Gaming To Launch This Year, Giving New Life To Stardust Casino PA

Boyd Gaming is launching Boyd Interactive, with plans to grow its wholly owned Stardust Online Casino brand.

Las Vegas-based casino giant Boyd Gaming announced yesterday it would be spinning off its iGaming division into Boyd Interactive Gaming. The division will include its Stardust online casinos, its Las Vegas FanDuelbranded sportsbooks and the assets recently acquired in its $170 million purchase of Pala Interactive.

Boyd Gaming owns the PA casinoValley Forge Casino Resort, a top-three iGaming licensee in Pennsylvania. FanDuel Casino and Stardust Casino operate under its license. In addition, Boyd fully owns Stardust and will look to grow the brand moving forward.

The company will also continue to cash in on its 5% equity stake in FanDuel. That company operates the largest sportsbook in the nation and has online casinos in four states.

Stardust Casino PA moving onto the Boyd Interactive Gaming platform

Keith Smith, President and CEO of Boyd Gaming, said during the company’s Q4 earnings call:

“While online casinos are now limited to just a few states, we believe in the long-term potential from iGaming. Owning and operating our own iGaming operation will allow us to leverage our nationwide portfolio and extensive customer database to create a profitable online casino business.”

“We will start by transitioning our current Stardust Online Casinos in New Jersey and Pennsylvania to our platform over the next several months.”

Smith expects the transition to take place by mid-year. He said he expects no economic impact in 2023, despite moving off of FanDuel’s platform. Owning 100% of the product will offset any short-term drop in numbers, he said. And the business should grow in the long term as Boyd grows its own player databases.

Boyd’s focus will remain on iGaming, leaving its sports betting profits to come via its piece of FanDuel.

Can Boyd build off a record-setting 2022?

The Q4 earnings call revealed that Boyd Gaming set records for the year and quarter, with $3.6 billion in annual revenue and $923 million coming in Q4. Yearly revenue was up 5.6% from $3.37 billion in 2021. Fourth quarter revenue was up 4.9% from $879.8 million in 2021.

Along with iGaming, its Vegas properties and management fees from California’s Sky River Casino, which opened last year, propelled those increases

Valley Forge is the largest sportsbook licensee in Pennsylvania, a top market in the country. It is also the third-largest iGaming licensee in the state, reporting $279 million in online casino gross gaming revenue (GGR) in 2022. 

Most of that is undoubtedly from FanDuel, though the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board does not report individual operator statistics. 

Nonetheless, total online casino GGR was $1.67 billion for the year. Boyd’s PA and nationwide presence bodes well for the company’s future profits.

Younger Players, Table Games Help PA Casinos Rebound After Pandemic Drops

PA casino revenue has rebounded after the pandemic dip, thanks to table games and other offerings that attract younger players.

COVID-19 forced Pennsylvania casinos to close their doors for several months during 2020, causing ripples from which not all have fully recovered.

Others have made complete comebacks, though, even growing beyond pre-pandemic revenue for slots, table games or both. What separates the best from the rest?

Let’s start with upgraded casino floors, retail sportsbooks, new machines and table games, and exciting dining and entertainment options.

Those succeeding have made many of these upgrades with the future in mind. Thus, they are geared toward younger players aged 21-44.

Younger players have different gambling behaviors and spending habits, which some casinos have identified more quickly than others. As time passes, more casinos will catch on and follow this trend.

In the meantime, keep reading to see which PA casinos are evolving to grow their bottom lines in one of the most competitive, dynamic and growing industries in the nation.

Table games are more popular than slots within the younger demographic

Slots continue to be the bread and butter of casinos worldwide, but younger players are increasingly frequenting casinos in search of a more comprehensive experience with retail sportsbooks, bars, restaurants and nightclubs/concert venues. Casinos are listening, too.

“While the slots clientele still slants toward an older demographic as has traditionally been the case, we are hearing casino GMs talk of younger customers’ social gaming behavior, which involves trying out any and all games on the casino floor. While that does include slots, younger gamblers and especially younger sports bettors, gravitate more toward table games,” Chris Imperiale, Managing Editor for PlayPennsylvania, told The Center Square.

Casinos like Wind Creek and Rivers Philadelphia are leaning into this knowledge head-first, installing more interactive table game experiences such as live dealer stadium gaming, which allows more players to sit at the “same table,” so to speak. Electronic tables are replacing traditional ones, giving players more betting flexibility.

“When you hear about new bars with lawn games, fire pits and Topgolf Swing Suites (Mohegan PA), you can bet they’re trying to reach a younger audience,” Imperiale added.

Even slots are beginning to appeal more to younger players, with many new games featuring larger machines and more immersive audio and visual features.

Wind Creek and Parx Casinos lead recoveries in 2022

By the end of 2022, statewide revenue surpassed its 2019 figures for both table games and slots. 

Second-half slot revenue was $1.2 billion in 2022, up 3.6% from $1.16 billion in 2019. Table games revenue grew even more, up 8.4% over the same time frame after reaching $487.5 million. In 2019, table games generated $449.8 million in revenue.

The two largest casinos in the state, Parx and Wind Creek, surpassed table games revenue from 2019 in the year’s second half. Wind Creek broke the state record in table games revenue in July 2022 ($23.6 million), contributing toward $122 million in cumulative revenue through December. In 2019, table games brought in $119 million for the same period.

Slots at Wind Creek came within 1% of 2019 levels, too. Second-half gross terminal revenue totaled $125.2 million in 2022, versus $125.7 million in 2019.

Parx’s 2022 second-half table games revenue also broke nine figures ($100.9 million), up 4.8% from 2019 ($96.3 million).

Mohegan Pennsylvania and Valley Forge also returned to pre-pandemic totals. In contrast, others such as Hollywood Casino at Penn National Race Course, Hollywood Casino at The Meadows, Harrah’s Philadelphia and Rivers Philadelphia have yet to recover.

Increased growth and competition coming to PA casinos in 2023

Pennsylvania’s retail casino industry is one of the healthiest and most established in the nation, growing more than 10% through November 2022 compared to the same period in 2021. Its commercial casino revenue ranks second only to Nevada, unaffected by recent events such as New York’s mobile sports betting launch in January 2022.

Four new casinos opened between November 2020 and December 2021, adding more competitors to the equation. Parx Shippensburg is next, opening on Jan. 26.

All of these signs point to more growth throughout 2023. As a result, casinos will need to step up their games to win and maintain players’ business like never before.

This is especially true in the casino-concentrated areas surrounding Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Players across the state can look forward to the following as the year progresses:

  • Retail sportsbook upgrades
  • Remodeled high limit rooms
  • More bars and dining options
  • Added entertainment venues and events
  • New hotels and hotel renovations

We outline Cowherd’s picks below, adding a slate of additional picks from industry experts, the Barstool Sports Advisors, ESPN’s Erin Dolan and’s Eli Hershkovich.

Once you decide whose picks you’re on board with, head over to PA online sportsbooks to jump on the best available lines.

Colin Cowherd’s Blazin’ 5 record

Colin Cowherd is having his best season yet and hopes to finish strong this weekend after a 1-3 showing in Week 17. Barring a catastrophic weekend, Cowherd is also in great shape to have a winning record since 2019. His five-year record to date is 164-161-10.

  • 2022: 41-35-3
  • 2021: 37-43-2
  • 2020: 40-41-2
  • 2019: 46-42-3

Week 17 Win:

  • Miami Dolphins (+2.5) at New England Patriots (Final Score: Patriots 23, Dolphins 21)

Week 17 Losses:

  • New England Jets (-1.5) at Seattle Seahawks (Final Score: Seahawks 23, Jets 6)
  • San Francisco 49ers (-9.5) at Las Vegas Raiders (Final Score: 49ers 37, Raiders 34)
  • Minnesota Vikings (+3) at Green Bay Packers (Final Score: Packers 41, Vikings 17)

Week 18 picks from The Herd

“All right, so I’m at 54% for the year. I want to get to 55. Here we go!”

Kansas City Chiefs at Las Vegas Raiders (+9.5)

Cowherd pick: Raiders

Final score prediction: Chiefs 27, Raiders 23

Cowherd said:

“It’s a rivalry game. I’m gonna take the 9.5 points with the Raiders. By the way, Patrick Mahomes, as great as he is, is a bad cover quarterback when he’s favored by a touchdown, remarkably so.

“Last seven games, the Raiders are 5-2 against the spread. They want to go into the offseason with a positive vibe. Thirteen of their games have been decided by under a touchdown, and again, this is a rivalry game.

“The Chiefs, 1-4 against the spread in the last five. They’re not great as a big favorite. What are they actually playing for? I think the Raiders are playing for pride, to put stuff on tape. Jarrett Stidham played very well last week against the Niners. I think they’re competitive. I’m gonna take the Raiders to lose but cover. Chiefs win 27-23, typical AFC West game.”

Final Score: Raiders 31, Chiefs 13

Did Colin Cowherd Win? No

Tennessee Titans (+6) at Jacksonville Jaguars

Cowherd pick: Titans

Final score prediction: Titans 24, Jaguars 23

Cowherd said:

“I don’t understand this line. I love the Titans. Like it? I love it! Titans +6. They’ve won five of their last six games against the Jaguars, and the Titans are very good against .500 teams or worse. The Jags are 8-8. Derrick Henry, against the Jags, has always been a complete handful. 

“And again, the Jaguars’ last two wins have come against teams playing multiple quarterbacks. The Texans with Davis Mills and Jeff Driskel, and the Jets with Zach Wilson and Chris Streveler. It’s a young team, Jacksonville. Six giveaways in their last three games. They can get sloppy. I’m gonna take the Titans in a division rivalry game +6, an upset win. The Titans pull off the upset 24-23 over the Jags.”

Final Score: Jaguars 20, Titans 16

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Yes

Cleveland Browns (+2.5) at Pittsburgh Steelers

Cowherd pick: Browns

Final score prediction: Browns 20, Steelers 17

Cowherd said:

“Another division rivalry and I’m gonna take the underdog. I’m gonna take the Browns +2.5 at the Steelers. The Steelers don’t score points. I mean, Pittsburgh, if you go look, they’ve been held under 20 points four of the last five games, and they’ve played seven straight close games. Diontae Johnson is hurt. Minkah Fitzpatrick’s hurt. 

“Deshaun Watson, last week against a pretty good defense, is improving. They got big rushing yards against the Commanders. Amari Cooper had a big day; Nick Chubb had a big day. I think they’re a team getting better. I think they’re gonna upset the Steelers in a very, very competitive game. These games in this division – when you can take points in the AFC North, do. Browns win over the Steelers 20-17.”

Final Score: Steelers 28, Browns 14

Did Colin Cowherd Win? No

Los Angeles Rams (+6) at Seattle Seahawks

Cowherd pick: Rams

Final score prediction: Rams 27, Seahawks 20

Cowherd said:

“I love the way the Rams are playing. I’m gonna take the Rams +6 here. (Sean) McVay, in 12 games against Pete Carroll, has won eight of them. Their offense, they have 150-plus rushing yards in back-to-back games. Cam Akers has arrived. Multiple takeaways in five-of-six games. 

“I gotta be honest with you. Baker Mayfield’s been good. Four games, completion percentage back into the high 60s. Passer rating mid-90s. He’s got a running game, so he’s throwing on second-and-five and third-and-two. I like what I see from Baker Mayfield.

“And Seattle’s defense is atrocious. They’ve gotta take some draft capital and shore it up on the inside. Kenneth Walker’s banged up; he was sick this week. I think the Rams – this is what they’ve been prone to do – beat the Seahawks 27-20.”

Final Score: Seahawks 19, Rams 16

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Yes

Los Angeles Chargers at Denver Broncos (-2.5)

Cowherd pick: Broncos

Final score prediction: Broncos 27, Chargers 24

Cowherd said:

“My only favorite I’ll take. I’m gonna take the Denver -2.5 at home. The Broncos have scored 24-plus points in three of their last four games. The Broncos, three-plus touchdowns in three of their last four games. And we know this is an unbelievable defense. Opposing quarterbacks’ passer rating this year against the Broncos, 81. And Justin Herbert, in Week 6, struggled against this defense.

“The Chargers are built to play with a lead, but they often fall behind. They’ve been held to 20 points or fewer in four of their last five road games. Again, their last three wins: Rams, Colts and Titans, who had to go to Malik Willis. 

“I just think, Denver, this means a lot for them. Positive vibes going into the offseason. Feeling good. A little momentum. We know they need it. Do the Chargers? I’m gonna have Denver to win and cover, 27-24. You get these division rivalry games, four out of the five picks, I’m taking points.”

Final Score: Broncos 31, Chargers 28

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Yes

Colin Cowherd weekly record: 3-2

Colin Cowherd 2022 Blazin’ 5 Overall Record: 44-37-3 (54.2%)

NFL Week 18 expert picks roundup

Barstool Sports Advisors ‘mortal locks’

The Barstool Sports Advisors cast of Stu Feiner, Dan ”Big Cat” Katz and Jerry “The Kid” Thornton has one of the most exciting segments on the internet, posting their “mortal locks” before kickoff each Sunday on Twitter

As always, please remember always to bet responsibly. No pick claimed to be a “lock” is ever guaranteed, nor should it be taken as such.

  • Feiner: Washington Commanders (+7) vs. Dallas Cowboys – Win
  • Big Cat: Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints (Over 41.5) – Loss
  • Jerry The Kid: New York Jets (+2) at Miami Dolphins – Loss

Erin Dolan – ‘Dolan out winners’

Erin Dolan is active on Twitter and YouTube throughout the week, including her weekly ESPN segment, ‘Dolan out winners.’ Throughout the year, Dolan has increased the number of player props on her card and has shown success in that arena.

Like Cowherd, Week 17 was unkind to Dolan, who posted a 1-3 record. She incorrectly predicted a pair of anytime touchdowns for Justin Fields and Miles Sanders and that the Carolina Panthers would cover a three-point spread against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Her lone win was another player prop (Tyler Huntley under 37.5 rushing yards).

Week 18 Picks:

  • Philadelphia Eagles (-6.5 1st Half) vs. New York Giants on FanDuel Sportsbook – Win
  • Deshaun Watson (Anytime INT) – Win
  • Ja’Marr Chase (Under 6.5 receptions) – Loss

Eli Hershkovich

After going 2-0 for three straight weeks,’s Eli Hershkovich missed on his only pick in Week 17. He sided with the New York Jets, who traveled across the country and lost 24-6 to the Seattle Seahawks. 

Week 18 picks:

  • Tennessee Titans (+6.5) at Jacksonville Jaguars – Win
  • Detroit Lions at Green Bay Packers (Under 49.5) – Win

If Hershkovich takes any more lines, we’ll add them here. Regardless, check back Monday morning to see how our entire panel of experts fared.

Week 17 picks from The Herd

“We’ve got a great weekend starting, so let’s not waste any time.”

Miami Dolphins (+2.5) at New England Patriots

Cowherd pick: Dolphins

Final score prediction: Dolphins 27, Patriots 23

Cowherd said:

“I think the Dolphins are a better team. They’re getting 2.5 points at New England. I’m gonna take Miami here, even if Teddy Bridgewater plays. Teddy Bridgewater had 330 yards passing the last time he played in Week 6 against the Vikings.

“New England’s offense – they’ve lost four of five – they can’t score over 20. They’ve been absolutely awful since Week 7 and (have) eight games with less than 200 total yards this year. Only the Texans have more. 

“Teddy Bridgewater’s competent, I still get great skill players, a more clever offensive coach. And you get Matt Patricia. I’m gonna take Miami and the points to win, 27-23 Dolphins.”

Final Score: Patriots 23, Dolphins 21

Did Colin Cowherd win? Yes

New England Jets (-1.5) at Seattle Seahawks

Cowherd pick: Jets

Final score prediction: Jets 24, Seahawks 20

Cowherd said:

“I’m gonna swallow the 1.5 points and take the Jets here, who have been a good road team, 4-3. Why are they a road team? Because defense travels. So, they’re a very good road team. Held opponents to 20 points or fewer in three straight games. Now, they’re not winning enough in those games, but since Week 4, they have been dominant. Arguably the best defense in the entire league since Week 4.

“And Jets starting quarterbacks not named Zach Wilson, over the last two years, throw for over 300 yards. The offense is competent; Zach Wilson’s not. Mike White’s gonna play, the Seahawks are the only team in the league that has at least one turnover in the game, and their rushing offense has disappeared. The Jets win an ugly one, 24-20.”

Final Score: Seahawks 23, Jets 6

Did Colin Cowherd win? No

San Francisco 49ers (-9.5) at Las Vegas Raiders

Cowherd pick: 49ers

Final score prediction: 49ers 28, Raiders 17

Cowherd said:

“I hate taking big favorites, but I’m gonna take the Niners -9.5. This thing, I don’t even know how the Raiders score. Jarrett Stidham’s career completion percentage is 52. 

“The Niners’ defense is the best by a mile. They’re 11-0 when they win the turnover battle, and you know the Raiders are gonna have some turnovers. Since Week 8, the Niners are just unbelievable in point differential and turnover differential, and their offense has scored 30-plus points three times in the last month.

“The Raiders have lost five times this year when leading at halftime. So, even when they were leading and playing well and had a good game plan, they’re capable of losing because they can’t stop anybody. Jarrett Stidham, in preseason games, completed 62% against scout team guys. I think he’s gonna have a rough afternoon. I’m gonna the Niners, swallow the points, 28-17.”

Final Score: 49ers 37, Raiders 34

Did Colin Cowherd win? No

Minnesota Vikings (+3) at Green Bay Packers

Cowherd pick: Vikings

Final score prediction: Vikings 27, Packers 24

Cowherd said:

“It’s a division game. It’s too close. I’m just gonna take the points. I wish I got the hook at 3.5. I’m gonna take Minnesota +3. Bottom line is they’re 11-0 in one-score games, and this is gonna be a one-score game. That’s my view on it.

“Kirk Cousins is averaging almost 400 yards throwing in the last month. Green Bay, remember, had to overcome a 10-point deficit to beat Miami. And we now learn that Tua had a concussion. They remain awful on third down, 2-of-14 against the Dolphins. And their wins have come against the Bears, Rams and Dolphins when Tua had a concussion in the second half.

“I think Minnesota’s the more balanced team. They blew them out the first time. I don’t know if Christian Watson’s gonna play. I’m gonna take the Vikings here, 27-24. I’m gonna take the points.”

Final Score: Packers 41, Vikings 17

Did Colin Cowherd win? No

Buffalo Bills at Cincinnati Bengals (+1.5)

Cowherd pick: Bengals

Final score prediction: Bengals 28, Bills 27

Cowherd said:

“Bengals at home, getting points? A team that doesn’t turn it over as much, that’s getting great offensive line play? I’m gonna take Cincinnati here. They’re on a heater, (winning) nine of ten. At home, the best offense in the league. Five takeaways in the last two games. Joe Burrow’s been on fire since Week 3.

“And this Bills team, prone to turnovers. They’ve got 24; only the Colts have more. And Josh Allen’s had five games with multiple interceptions. So, you’re going to have to score some points because Cincinnati always does at home. 

“I get the better situational quarterback, home field advantage, points, the better offensive line and a turnover-prone Buffalo Bills team. The wise guys, I think, like Buffalo. I’m gonna take Cincinnati to win a really, really fun game, 28-27. Go either way, but I like the team that is less prone to make a big mistake. Buffalo’s Tyson. They’ll knock you out, but if they miss, they leave themselves vulnerable.”

“It’s a fun weekend. It’s a different weekend. So, Saturday, we have a bunch of NFL games. And then Sunday, we have a bunch of NFL games. So, it’s gonna be a very, very unique weekend. Off a little bit of a heater, here’s my picks!”

(Friday NFL lines from FanDuel Sportsbook PA.)

Detroit Lions at Carolina Panthers (+2.5)

Cowherd pick: Panthers

Final score prediction: Panthers 30, Lions 24

Cowherd said:

“I’m taking the Panthers at home +2.5. They’re 5-2 this year when they rush for over 100 yards. They’re 0-7 when they don’t, and I don’t like the Lions’ defense against the run on the road. Here’s the other thing. Jared Goff home and road splits, you gotta notice. Not the same guy away from home. Eighty-two passer rating; twice as many giveaways as touchdowns. 

“This defense will give Carolina and Sam Darnold opportunities. Carolina’s at home for the holidays, plus the points. I’m gonna take them with an upset win, 30-24 Panthers. Lions cool off a little bit.”

Final Score: Panthers 37, Lions 23

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Yes

Cincinnati Bengals at New England Patriots (+3)

Cowherd pick: Patriots

Final score prediction: Patriots 24, Bengals 23

Cowherd said:

“How about this for an upset? New England +3 is the side. Off a humiliating loss, perhaps the most of Belichick or Matt Patricia’s career. Remember, this team has scored 99 points off of turnovers. Most in the league.

“The Patriots’ defense, 11 sacks over the last three games. They’re starting to get consistent pressure, and their defense overall has been top three-to-five all year.

“The Bengals trailed the Bucs 7-0 until Tampa imploded. They’re on a six-game winning streak, but only one against a winning team. Cold, super windy, will limit the vertical passing game. Patriots in an ugly game where they control the line of scrimmage, 24-23 upset.”

Final Score: Bengals 22, Patriots 18

Did Colin Cowherd Win? No

Washington Commanders (+6.5) at San Francisco 49ers

Cowherd pick: Commanders

Final score prediction: 49ers 26, Commanders 23

Cowherd said:

“If you can buy half a point or a point, I would. But I’m gonna take the Commanders at +6.5. They averaged 6.7 yards per play last weekend against a good Giants defense. The last five road games, 4-0-1. Strangely, they play better on the road. And since Week 5, this is the league’s best defense, and Chase Young returns.

“The Niners, a little beat up. Christian McCaffrey, Deebo Samuel [and] their top corner. Travarius Ward’s coming off a concoussion. I think the Niners win, but Washington’s defense, with Chase Young, is gonna get pressure on Brock Purdy. There’s now some tape on him; 26-23 Niners. It’s ugly. It’s close. Take the points.”

Final Score: 49ers 37, Commanders 20

Did Colin Cowherd Win? No

Las Vegas Raiders at Pittsburgh Steelers (-2)

Cowherd pick: Steelers

Final score prediction: Steelers 27, Raiders 23

Cowherd said:

“Steelers -2 at home, to me, is the play. You know, they’ve won three of four. Their only loss was to the Ravens, close. And their defense, very strong. The story here is also beyond the defense: Kenny Pickett, concussion protocol, will return. He has not thrown an interception in his last five starts. He’s starting to get it, and he’s 3-1 in his last four healthy starts.

“The Raiders’ defense does not force you into turnovers at all, and the Steelers’ defense does. In fact, the Raiders’ defense is the only team allowing 100-plus passer ratings to quarterbacks all year. If it was three, maybe I pass. But only -2, Pittsburgh’s gonna win it. I think it’s close, 27-23.”

Final Score: Steelers 13, Raiders 10

Did Colin Cowherd Win? Yes

Green Bay Packers at Miami Dolphins (-3.5)

Cowherd pick: Dolphins

Final score prediction: Dolphins 27, Packers 20

Cowherd said:

“All the wise guys love the Packers. I do not. I think Miami, coming home against a borderline playoff team, is going to thrive…Love how they played against Buffalo in lousy weather. They had 405 yards, almost 190 rushing. It’s their first home game since Week 12, and they’ve been 5-1 at home. Tua, 5-0 at home this year, with a passer rating of almost 109.

“Five of the six Packers wins this year, two have come against the Bears, one against the Rams, the Bucs and the Patriots. This is a high-powered offense and Green Bay’s not. Do you realize Aaron Rodgers has been held under 200 yards passing in two of his last three, and he’s gone 18 consecutive games under 300 yards passing?

“This team isn’t good enough to go on the road to beat a quality team, and I think Miami is. 27-20 Miami over Green Bay.”

Final Score: Packers 26, Dolphins 20

Colin Cowherd weekly record: 2-3

NFL Week 16 expert picks roundup

Barstool Advisors ‘mortal locks’
