Our Past Christmas Day Sports Predictions
Every year, the NBA features a stockingâs share of games played on Christmas Day. This year, the NFL is adding to the dayâs bundle of gifts. As the holiday falls on a Monday, the NFLâs weekly schedule features not one but two games for your viewing pleasure. After youâve opened your gifts and had too many cookies, find a spot on the couch and unwrap all of these game day presents. Our Christmas Day game predictions are below.
Houston Texans vs. Pittsburgh Steelers
The Texans were dealt a huge blow when rookie quarterback, Deshaun Watson, was lost for the season due to injury. They have looked listless since and are playing for pride at this point. It doesnât help theyâre facing a Steelers team left with a sour taste in their mouths after a close loss to the Patriots last week. The Texans havenât been naughty, but theyâre getting coal in their stocking anyway. Steelers run away with this one.
Philadelphia Eagles vs. Oakland Raiders
New York Knicks vs. Philadelphia 76ers
Neither team is particularly good, but both sport some of the best big men in the league in Kristaps Porzingis and Joel Embiid. Which way this one goes is the flip of a coin, but itâs sure to be a nice appetizer for the later slate of games. 76ers fend off the Knicks.
Golden State Warriors vs. Cleveland Cavaliers
Oklahoma City Thunder vs. Houston Rockets
All those big acquisitions for OKC donât seem to be paying off, while the Rockets look primed and ready for takeoff. Carmelo Anthony is coming off his worst scoring performance in five years, while Houston has won ten straight games. Itâs always exciting to see Russell Westbrook carve up defenses, but this will be an uphill battle in the snow for him. Rockets cruise to a victory after pulling away late in the game.
Boston Celtics vs. Washington Wizards
You might be exhausted from all the sports watching by this point and sleep through this one. Weâd forgive you. The Lakers are mostly on the schedule because theyâre the Lakers, while the Timberwolves are slowly making a name for themselves in the always-competitive West. Look for some dazzling plays from Lonzo Ball and Jimmy Butler to add the tinsel to your Christmas Day watch party, but this will otherwise be a pedestrian affair. T-Wolves win it easily.
