The matchups are set for the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, and if the odds are anything to go by, most of the games should be much closer than the myriad of wild-card weekend blowouts.
There are two games on Saturday, and two more on Sunday as eight teams will become four in the postseason.
Cincinnati Bengals @ Tennessee Titans – Saturday, January 22nd 4:30pm ET
Kicking off the weekend’s action is an intriguing AFC clash between the Bengals, who managed their first postseason win since 1991 last week, and the number one seed Tennessee who welcome back Derrick Henry after an absence of almost three months.
With home advantage and a two-week rest under their belts, it’s no surprise that the Titans are favored at -175 but Joe Burrow showed no signs of being fazed by the occasion as the Bengals took care of the Raiders on Saturday, and +160 seems a reasonable price for an upset.
The point spread is set at 3.5 points, while the total points over/under line is at 47.
San Francisco 49ers @ Green Bay Packers – Saturday, January 22nd 8:15pm ET
The 49ers were the only road team to emerge victorious on wild-card weekend as they marched into Dallas and beat the Cowboys 23-17, but they face an even trickier task at Lambeau Field in the divisional round.
In the most lop-sided encounter of this week as far as the online sportsbooks are concerned, the Packers are six-point favorites against the 2020 NFC champions.
You can back the Packers at -250 on the money line, or take a chance on the visitors at +210.
47.5 is the line for total points.
Los Angeles Rams @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers – Sunday, January 23rd 3pm ET
Both the Rams and the reigning champion Buccaneers have been towards the top of the Super Bowl betting market all season long, and it’s a truly mouth-watering game ahead on Sunday afternoon.
The Bucs are favored by three points, and the best price you’ll get on them to win the game is -149.
Los Angeles has gone all in on winning this season, and after a beatdown of the Arizona Cardinals on Monday night, they are +140 to keep it rolling and advance.
At 48.5, the total points line is a tough one to call.
Buffalo Bills @ Kansas City Chiefs – Sunday, January 23rd 6:30pm ET
This game has by far the highest total point line at 55, and is also the closest in terms of the point spread, with the Bills given a two-point head start.
Buffalo is a +115 underdog, and many might be tempted by the -130 offering on the Chiefs at Arrowhead, but either way, this is the trickiest game to decide on if you are weighing up parlays on betting sites in the US.
These two teams are second and third respectively in the Super Bowl betting market, with only the Packers ahead of them.
