It is the end of the regular season and the first week of the playoffs is here! There are six games total this weekend and I will be picking a team from every game to tease and will still be making prop bet picks.
Bengals pick and Bills +2
The Bengals rested some starters last week and will be coming into this game fresh. Before last week, the Bengals had been red hot, winning three of their last four games with Joe Burrow throwing for almost 1,100 yards and 10 touchdowns. The Bengals have the Raiders coming to town and should be able to win this game. This will be one time that Vegas loses on a bet.
The Bills have the Patriots traveling to Buffalo for a third matchup this season. The run game has been good for the Bills lately, averaging over 100 yards rushing and they have been able to make plays outside of the run game as well. The Patriots have struggled to stop the run as of late. The Bills need to continue to run the ball well and be able to use play action off it. If the Bills have a strong run game and complement it well with a solid passing game, this should end up in a Bills win.
Tampa Bay -2.5 and 49ers +9
The Buccaneers haven’t been playing the best football but have still found ways to win. They are 7-1 in their last eight games and have won by an average of more than ten points a game. I bet they manage business against the Eagles again, like they did earlier in the year.
The 49ers are traveling to Dallas for a meeting with the Cowboys. The Cowboys have been extremely inconsistent on offense, some weeks putting up 50 others only putting up 17. Last week, they hung 50 points on the Eagles. The last time they put up 50 on an opponent, they came back the next week, played poorly, and lost. Also, the 49ers are a tough team to play. They play very physical football and don’t ever give up. This will be a close game and will be decided by less than one score.
Chiefs -6.5 and Rams +2
The Chiefs found their stride late in the season. They have been playing better football than they were through the first seven weeks. They have only lost one game and put up around 30 points per game since October 24th. The last time the Steelers and Chiefs played, it wasn’t a close game and the Chiefs were able to handle them no problem. This should be the case again this week. This is as close as you can get to a surefire bet.
Finally, the Rams have the Cardinals coming to town and even though the Cardinals play better on the road, I still like the Rams. The Rams have so much talent on their roster and, if they play to their abilities, no one in the NFL should be able to keep up. They have elite talent all over the field and this alone should be enough for them to get the win.
Deebo Samuel anytime TD
Samuel gets touches as a running back and as a wide receiver and makes big plays every game. I bet he finds the endzone.
Ja’Marr Chase anytime TD
Chase is Burrow’s number one target and has had multiple long TDs this season. I expect Chase to catch at least one TD.
Jalen Hurts anytime TD
The Eagles have the best run game in the playoffs and will need to continue to have success. Expect Hurts to carry the ball a decent amount and score.
