After a nice Wild Card round last week, we advance to the Divisional round of the playoffs. There are four games this week, which means only two teasers and a couple of prop bets.
Bengals +9.5 and Packers Pick
Joe Burrow and the Bengals have been playing great football this year and that will continue this week. Burrow has been lights out in the last couple weeks and seems to have found a rhythm in the NFL. They are playing the Titans, who will most likely have Derrick Henry back this week. The Bengals defense will need to play a big part in this game. The Bengals defensive line is top ten in the NFL in my opinion. I bet they keep the Titans offense in check.
The Packers will be hosting the 49ers and give me Rodgers 10 times out of 10. I trust Rodgers’ ability to take over this game with his arm, being one of the best QBs in the NFL. The 49ers won’t be able to keep up with Rodgers and the Packers offense. The Packers win this game.
Bills +8 and Buccaneers +3
The Bills are traveling to Kansas City for another battle with the Chiefs. Last time they played, it was a favorable result for the Bills. This game is going to be extremely tight this week. A back and forth game with multiple lead changes. I bet this game ends as a one score Bills win.
The Buccaneers have the Rams coming to town for a great matchup. The Bucs offensive line vs. the Rams defensive line is going to be one of the keys to this game. The Bucs offensive line has been good all year, protecting Brady at all costs. They need to keep Aaron Donald and Von Miller in check. In the end, Tom Brady is in the playoffs… and you can’t bet against him. This is also going to be a close game.
Derrick Henry anytime TD
This is Henry’s first week back from injury and I expect him to get a heavy work load. I expect he gets around 20 touches and finds the end zone.
Josh Allen anytime TD
Allen has been using his legs well in the last couple weeks. The Chiefs will probably focus on the passing game defensively, opening the run game for Allen.
Davante Adams anytime TD
Adams is Rodgers’ favorite target and will get a ton of touches this week against a weaker 49ers secondary. I bet he finds the end zone near the goal line.
