NFL Wild Card Round Betting

This will be the most action-packed Wild Card Weekend yet. Rather than our usual slate of four games, there are six games in the first round of the playoffs due to the expanded playoff format. That means we will have football throughout the weekend with three games evenly spaced out on both Saturday and Sunday. The Kansas City Chiefs and Green Bay Packers will have the week off after earning the No. 1 seeds in their respective conferences, making them the favorites to play in Super Bowl LV in Tampa Bay.

Saturday, January 9 Games

Buffalo Bills vs. Indianapolis Colts, 1:05 p.m. ET (CBS)

Buffalo Bills -6.5

Indianapolis Colts +6.5

Total: 51

Buffalo’s first division title in 25 years means the Bills are hosting a postseason game for the first time this century. Only a small percentage of fans will be able to see the team in person, but those fans are sure to make their presence felt when the Indianapolis Colts come to town.

The Bills have one of the best offenses in the league with Josh Allen having a breakout season. Allen fell apart against Houston in the Wild Card Round last year, but he is looking to put that poor performance behind him.

Meanwhile, Philip Rivers is holding out hope he can reach the Super Bowl at least once in his career. Rivers currently has the dubious distinction of being the quarterback with the most passing yards and touchdown passes that has yet to make it to the biggest stage in football.

Seattle Seahawks vs. Los Angeles Rams, 4:40 p.m. ET (FOX)

Seattle Seahawks -3

Los Angeles Rams +3

Total: 42

This will be the third time these teams have met this season. Homefield advantage mattered in the previous two meetings with the Rams beating the Seahawks 23-16 in Los Angeles, but Seattle returned the favor at home two weeks ago with a 20-9 win that resulted in the NFC West title.

John Wolford might see his second career start against Seattle on Saturday. Jared Goff is currently listed as questionable, but there are many observers that believe his status is optimistic. Wolford didn’t play poorly outside of an early pick six last week against Arizona. However, Seattle’s defense has been superb over the last half of the 2020 season transforming from one of the worst pass defenses to one of the top ten.

Washington vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers, 8:15 p.m. ET (NBC)

Washington +8

Tampa Bay Buccaneers -8

Total: 44.5

Get ready to see Tampa Bay in every tease this week. The Buccaneers are likely to be the most popular team to bet this week after getting matched up against the NFC East winner. Washington is just the third sub .500 team to win its division and host a playoff game.

The allure of Tom Brady will be too much for many bettors to ignore. Brady was 30-11 in the playoffs during his time with the New England Patriots, and he holds almost double the postseason wins of any other quarterback. Tampa Bay is red hot coming into the playoffs, but Mike Evans is banged up and Washington has one of the most fearsome pass rushes in the NFL.

Sunday January 10 Games

Tennessee Titans vs. Baltimore Ravens, 1:05 p.m. ET (ESPN/ABC)

Tennessee Titans +3

Baltimore Ravens -3

Total: 54.5

It’s rare to immediately have a chance to avenge a postseason disappointment, but Baltimore has that opportunity this week. The Ravens collapsed against the Titans last season. Baltimore had won 12 straight games prior to facing Tennessee in the playoffs, but league MVP Lamar Jackson had one of his worst performances, and Derrick Henry ran all over the Ravens.

Henry became the most recent 2,000-yard rusher with his performance against the Texans last week, but Tennessee’s defense was exposed for the second straight week by a top tier quarterback. Jackson will certainly have chances against this defense, and he needs to make the most of those for Baltimore.

New Orleans Saints vs. Chicago Bears, 4:40 p.m. ET (CBS)

New Orleans Saints -10

Chicago Bears +10

Total: 47.5

Will the New Orleans Saints have Alvin Kamara back for this game? No one knows at this point. Kamara and the rest of the running backs missed last week’s season finale due to COVID. It’s currently unclear whether or not they will be cleared from COVID protocol by kickoff, but the fact this game is on a Sunday helps a little bit in that regard.

Ty Montgomery and Tony Jones Jr. will be the running backs if Kamara and Latavius Murray can’t play. That would likely lead to Drew Brees taking to the air often, and Taysom Hill might be involved more than usual too.

Chicago has no choice but to trust in Mitchell Trubisky one last time. Trubisky has put up better numbers than you might think when he’s on the field, but everyone knows what kind of quarterback he is at this point. That has led to the Saints being the biggest favorite of Wild Card Weekend.

Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Cleveland Browns, 8:15 p.m. ET (NBC)

Pittsburgh Steelers -6

Cleveland Browns +6

Total: 47.5

Cleveland almost fumbled at the goal line with the NFL’s longest active postseason drought on the line last week. The Browns were massive favorites against a Pittsburgh team resting most of its starters, but they still needed a goal line stand to beat the Steelers.

Pittsburgh has looked shaky over the last month. Ben Roethlisberger hasn’t looked downfield as often in the passing game, and the run game hasn’t been consistent. That has Cleveland optimistic it can win its first postseason game since entering the league.
