Odds

Moneyline: Chiefs 1/5 with Unibet | Jaguars – 18/5 with BetUK
Spread: Chiefs -8.5 – 10/11 with Bet UK | Jaguars +8.5 – 10/11 with Parimatch

Jaguars at Chiefs Picks

Moneyline: Chiefs
Spread: Chiefs -8.5
Over/Under: Over 52

The Jags’ famous 27-point comeback in the Wildcard round was truly remarkable to watch. Despite four picks from Trevor Lawrence they managed to steer the ship and take the win, but sadly I feel like we’re still a bit early in the rebuild down in Jacksonville to be able to compete with the juggernaut that is Kansas City. The offence is just too explosive and I struggle to see the Jags getting pressure on Patrick Mahomes, leaving him to be able to pick off the Jags with surgical precision. I think we’re getting lots of points, and it may look close for a while, only for the Chiefs to pull away late and cover the spread.

Jaguars at Chiefs Prop Bets

Jerick McKinnon Anytime Touchdown – 4/5 with PaddyPower

McKinnon has been a touchdown machine as the third-down and receiving back for the Chiefs in the second half of the season.

Travis Etienne Over 70.5 Rushing Yards – 17/20 with BetUK

The Chiefs have a mean defensive line lead by stud defensive tackle Chris Jones, but Etienne has emerged as a superstar himself this season.

Chris Jones To Record a Sack – Evens with bet365

Jones is the heart and soul of the Chiefs defence who anchors their defensive line. Expect to see a lot of him in the Jacksonville backfield.


New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles

Sunday 22nd January – Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania – 1:15 AM

Odds

Moneyline: Eagles – 2/7 with Coral | Giants – 3/1 with Betfair
Spread: Eagles -7.5 – 10/11 with SBK | Giants +7.5 – Evens with SBK
Over/Under: Under 47.5 – 10/11 with Coral | Over 47.5 – 10/11 with Unibet


Giants at Eagles Picks

Moneyline: Eagles
Spread: Giants +7.5
Over/Under: Under 47.5

If any of you truly believed before the season started that the Giants would be playing in the Divisional round, you’re a better judge than I. Coming into Brian Daboll’s first year as Head Coach, there were huge questions surrounding the quarterback, the receiving corps, and most of the defence. But here we are, Daniel Jones looks…good? The receivers are coming up clutch in big moments, and the defensive line may be one of the best in the entire league, with Dexter Lawrence in particular playing some dominant football. I’m fascinated to see how Daboll uses Jones and whether we see a similar amount of designed QB to last week, considering that’s something the Eagles have struggled with this year. I think this one ends up being mighty, mighty close but the Eagles just pipping the Giants thanks to some moments of magic by Jalen Hurts, AJ Brown and Devonta Smith.

Cincinnati Bengals at Buffalo Bills

Sunday 22nd January – Highmark Stadium – Buffalo, New York – 8:00 PM

Odds

Moneyline: Bills – 4/9 with Betfair | Bengals – 21/10 with William Hill
Spread: Bills -5.5 – 10/11 with Bet UK | Bengals +5.5 – 10/11 with bet365
Over/Under: Under 49 – 10/11 with Ladbrokes | Over 49 – 10/11 with Betway


Bengals at Bills Picks

Moneyline: Bengals
Spread: Bengals +5.5
Over/Under: Over 49

Here’s my big underdog pick of the weekend. The Bengals are on an incredible winning streak wherein they’ve beaten some very good teams, and when these two met last, the Bengals were looking very good and had taken an early lead before Damar Hamlin’s tragic injury. I like the Bengals a lot and the Dolphins proved last week that the Bills don’t have much else outside of Stefon Diggs to truly scare a defence. If the Bengals can win the turnover battle, something they’ve been very good at in big games in the last two seasons, I can see them winning this game. Buckle up, this one should be an absolute barnstormer.

Bengals at Bills Prop Bets

Josh Allen Over 0.5 Interceptions – 20/31 with bet365

Although the Bills’ offence has been impressive once again, Allen has been prone to turning the ball over throughout the season.

Ja’Marr Chase Over 83.5 Receiving Yards – 5/6 with PaddyPower

Chase has put up impressive stats once again, clearing 1000 yards despite missing four games through injury in the regular season.

Joe Burrow Over 277.5 Passing Yards – 17/20 with BetUK

Joe Brrrr has been dealing all season and looks to take the Bengals to back-to-back Superbowls on his arm.


Dallas Cowboys at San Francisco 49ers

Sunday 22nd January – Levi’s Stadium – Santa Clara, California – 11:30 PM

Odds

Moneyline: 49ers – 1/2 with 888 Sport | Cowboys – 9/5 with William Hill
Spread: 49ers -4 – 10/11 with Bet 365 | Cowboys +4 – 22/25 with Unibet
Over/Under: Under 46.5 – 10/11 with Unibet | Over 46.5 – 10/11 with Ladbrokes


Cowboys at 49ers Picks

Moneyline: Cowboys
Spread: Cowboys +4
Over/Under: Over 46.5

I’ve gone against the bookies here too by backing the underdog. The Brock Purdy story has been one of the storylines of the season, and no matter what happens here he fully deserves a run at being QB1 in San Francisco. That said, I think Dak Prescott’s form has really gone under the radar, and he is looking brilliant heading into this game. It’ll be tough for Dallas to stifle the niners’ vaunted run game but if they can do that, Prescott should win the quarterback battle. I’m expecting a lot of points, a decent amount of explosive plays on both sides, and plenty of drama.


Cowboys at 49ers Prop Bets

Brock Purdy Over 0.5 Interceptions – 20/23 with bet365

Pudry had 2-3 throws that could’ve easily been picks against the Seahawks, and you have to think the Cowboys defence won’t be as forgiving.

Tony Pollard Over 18.5 Receiving Yards – 5/6 with PaddyPower

Pollard has a been a threat on the ground and through the air all season coming out of the backfield.

Christian McCaffrey Over 65.5 Rushing Yards – 5/6 with William Hill

Expect the Niners to lean on McCaffrey in the run game to ease the pressure on Purdy and make those Cowboys pass rushers think twice about their assignments.
