LV +6 @ CIN O/U 48.5
Talk about Pressure. Cincinnati hasn’t won a playoff game since 1990 & if you don’t think that will be on the minds of these current Bengal players & coaches then you don’t understand Big Game Preparation. The Raiders have technically been playing Playoff games for the last 4 weeks of the season, finishing the regular season on a 4 game winning streak. They went 3-1 vs AFC North opponents. That 1 loss was a 32-13 beat down by the Bengals in Vegas. But this is the Playoffs & the Bengals just don’t win in the Playoffs, but neither has Derrick Carr who along with Joe Burrow will be making their 1st Post Season Starts. The Bengals are the better team. The Raiders have been finding ways to win when they need to the most. The Over is the Best Bet in this game, though we do like Vegas with the points. Play Vegas Plus 6 & Over 48.5!
NE +4.5 @ BUF O/U 44
Rumour is that Josh Allen doesn’t like playing in the cold & struggles in games when it’s freezing or below yet he is 2-0 in his 2 Home Playoff games so that doesn’t concern me. The wind won’t be blowing 40mph so that favors the strong armed Allen over rookie Mac Jones who struggled @ the QB position down the stretch. We are aware of the greatness of Belichick & to get this Patriots team to the Post Season is a good accomplishment, but to a man that’s accustomed to winning Super Bowls, he probably wouldn’t agree. That’s too bad because New England’s ride ends today. Give us The Bills to Win. I like them Moor on the Money Line than I do vs the number so I’ll take them just to Win! ML Buffalo!
PHI +8.5 @ TB O/U 45.5
The Eagles haven’t beaten a Playoff Team all season & won’t start with the defending Super Bowl Champs, Let’s Be Clear on that! Philadelphia was able to keep it kind of close in their regular season meeting, losing 28-22 but let’s not forget that the score @ 1 point was 28-7. Tampa won’t take their foot off of the Eagles neck in this 1. We’ll lay the points. Tampa Bay Minus 8.5!
SF +3 @ DAL O/U 50.5 This may be the Best matchup of the weekend. In order to beat Dallas, especially in Dallas you have to keep their pass rushers honest. Who could be better than the San Francisco 49ers @ that. They run the bell as good as anyone & the counters & boot action off the counters is the perfect recipe to defeat a good pass rush. Keeping Jimmy G upright & turnover free will be key. If they can do that I Love their chances. If not, it’s going to be a long day in Dallas. San Fran can get after the passer as well & will need to pressure Dak into mistakes if they plan to stay in this game. To sum it all up San Francisco has won 7 out of their last 9 including 2 vs the Rams & on the road vs the Bengals. Dallas loss to all 3 Playoff teams they faced in the 2nd half of the season (Chiefs Raiders & Cardinals) before beating an Eagles team that rested their starters. We trust Kyle Shanahan’s ability to game plan for this 1 Moor than we do Mike McCarthy who has looked lost for much of the season in crucial situations. ML San Francisco + Over 50.5!
PIT +12.5 @ KC O/U 46
Hate to see a Great Story come to an end. Pittsburgh played thier butts off just to make it into the Post Season. Gotta Love the job that Mike Tomlin has done this season with this group of Steelers. In what could be Big Ben’s last, excuse me. In what will be Big Ben’s last game in a Steelers uniform, at least this season, we don’t feel the Steelers have enough to compete with this Chiefs team. Kansas City beat Pittsburgh 36-10 in the regular season, in a game that really wasn’t even that close. Kansas City had 30 on the board before the Steelers decided to show up to the party. We feel the Steelers will put up a better fight than the 1 they put up the day after Christmas. 12.5 is a lot of points to lay in a Playoff game & though we believe Tomlin will have the Steelers ready to compete. We trust Kansas City -12.5 than we do the Steelers @ this point. We probably won’t personally wager on this game but if we do it’ll be on Kansas City Minus 12.5!
ARI +4 @ LAR O/U 49.5 The Cardinals were a much better team this season on the road than they were @ home. The 2 teams split their regular season meetings. Arizona won in LA 37-20, LA won in Arizona
30-23. The Cardinals are still expected to be without DeAndre Hopkins which is a huge blow. Matthew Stanford has yet to win a Playoff game in his career Both regular season meetings went Over the Total. The Game will be played on Monday night which is a spot in which we Love Overs. We’ll take this game Over 49.5!
