NFL Divisional Playoffs Continues With 4 Matches Ahead
The NFL playoffs continue with four Divisional Playoff matches this Saturday and Sunday. The top-seeded team Green Bay Packers and Kansas City Chiefs opens the schedule as big home favorites. In other news, the second-seeded Buffalo Bills and New Orleans Saints try to seek a higher position in their respective matchups with the fifth-seeded Baltimore Ravens and Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Before rolling out with your Bitcoin bets, let’s take a look at where each team stands based on their positions at various sportsbooks:
Rams vs Packers
The Rams face the Packers on Saturday at 4:35 PM Eastern. Based on our current odds and lines, the Rams have gained a little advantage as an underdog since the opening. However, it’s not enough. Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers might win this season’s NFL MVP award if he successfully tossed for 48 touchdowns, including three or more scores in six of his past seven appearances. It’s also worth noting that the Packers recorded a good run at the Lambeau Field, claiming victory in 15 of 17 overall dates since last season.
Prediction: Packers -6.5 (-115)
Ravens vs Bills
The Ravens will face the Bills on Saturday at 8:15 PM Eastern. Based on our current odds and lines, the Bills quickly lost their advantage in the opening and have steadily regained momentum since Monday morning. This trend is problematic, making the Ravens the most likely team to pull off an upset.
Prediction: Ravens +2.5 (-106)
Browns vs Chiefs
The Browns and Chiefs battle it out on Sunday at 3:05 PM Eastern. The Chiefs had a steady run at most sportsbooks since the opening, but according to many, their moneyline odds have shortened dramatically following the Wild Card Weekend. In contrast, the Browns’ odds have increased. The team also showed no signs of defeat in their last weekend’s match against the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Prediction: Over 56.5 (-110)
Buccaneers vs Saints
The Buccaneers go head to head against the Saints on Sunday at 6:40 PM Eastern. This will be the long-awaited playoff matchup between Tom Brady and Drew Brees that closes out the Divisional Playoff Weekend.
There have been no dramatic movements on the game line odds of Saints since the opening. The team opened the season as home favorites and remained in that position. The Buccaneers, meanwhile, have Tom Brady in his good form. Brady maintained his pace while tossing for two scores and 381 passing yards in the Saint’s last Saturday’s win in Washington. He led the Buccaneers to five straight victories, including three road wins. He needs to maintain this form to beat the Saints.
Prediction: Saints -3 (-110)
