NFL Playoffs Betting Preview

We’re now down to the last eight NFL teams still in the hunt for the 2019 Super Bowl and here’s our four NFL Divisional playoffs picks for this weekend’s exciting gridiron action… We can’t wait!

Indianapolis Colts @ Kansas City Chiefs (Saturday)

The Kansas City Chiefs meet the Indianapolis Colts in the NFL AFC Divisional play-off game at Arrowhead Stadium.

Patrick Mahomes is completing 66% of his passes for 5,097 yards, 50 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.  Mahomes has three or more touchdown passes in 10 of the 16 games this season. Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce have combined for 2,815 receiving yards and 22 touchdowns, while Sammy Watkins has 40 receptions. 

Andrew Luck is completing 67.3% of his passes for 4,815 yards, 41 touchdowns and 16 interceptions.  Luck has three or more touchdown passes in nine of his last 14 games. T.Y. Hilton and Eric Ebron have combined for 2,131 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns, while Chester Rogers has 57 receptions. 

The Chiefs have won seven of their last eight home games, while the Colts have won four of their last five road games. 

The Chiefs can make their first conference championship since the 1993 season and have had an extra week to prepare, while the Colts are coming off a play-off victory over the Houston Texans and will be looking to make their third AFC Championship since the 2009 season. 

The Colts can make this tight, so look worth backing on the Point Spread +5.5 at 10/11 with William Hill.

Point Spread – Indianapolis Colts +5.5 @ 10/11 with William Hill


Dallas Cowboys @ Los Angeles Rams (Saturday / Sunday AM)

The Los Angeles Rams meet the Dallas Cowboys in NFL Divisional Round play-off action on Saturday night at the LA Memorial Coliseum.

The Rams finished the season with a 13-3 record. In the 48-32 win over the San Francisco 49ers in Week 17, QB Jared Goff tossed for 199 yards and four touchdowns, while CJ Anderson led the rush with 132 yards and one touchdown. Brandin Cooks was the top receiver for the Rams with 62 yards and two touchdowns off five catches.

The Cowboys come into this game following a 10-6 campaign in the regular season, an NFC East Division championship and a 24-22 Wild Card Round play-off victory over the Seattle Seahawks.

In the win over the Seahawks, QB Dak Prescott put up 226 yards with one touchdown and one interception, with another 29 yards and a key score on the ground.  Ezekiel Elliott had 137 rush yards and one touchdown, while Amari Cooper was the lead Cowboys receiver on 106 yards from seven catches.

The Rams look capable of covering the Point Spread of -7 at 9/10 with 888sport in this one.

Los Angeles Chargers @ New England Patriots (Sunday)

The New England Patriots and Los Angeles Chargers meet in the NFL AFC Divisional play-off round at the Gillette Stadium on Sunday afternoon.

The Patriots will be looking at making the conference championship for an eighth consecutive year.

Tom Brady has completed 65.8% of his passes for 4,355 yards, 29 touchdowns and 11 interceptions.  Brady has one or fewer touchdown passes in six of his last nine games. Julian Edelman and James White have combined for 1,601 receiving yards and 13 touchdowns, while Rob Gronkowski has 47 receptions. 

The Chargers come into this game off a Wild Card win over the Baltimore Ravens and will be looking to make their first conference championship since the 2007 season.

Philip Rivers has completed 68.3% of his passes for 4,540 yards, 32 touchdowns and 12 interceptions.  Rivers has two or more touchdown passes in 14 of his last 18 games. Keenan Allen and Mike Williams have combined for 1,939 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns, while Tyrell Williams has 43 receptions. 

The Patriots have won all eight home games this season, but the Chargers have won each of their last seven games on the road and look worth a punt +4 on the Point Spread at 20/21 with Paddy Power.

Philadelphia Eagles @ New Orleans Saints (Sunday)

The New Orleans Saints meet the Philadelphia Eagles in a NFC Divisional round play-off on Sunday afternoon at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.

Nick Foles threw for 266 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions on 25 of 40 passing, while Darren Sproles and Wendell Smallwood combined for 41 rushing yards on 21 carries.  Alshon Jeffery led the Eagles with six catches for 82 yards, while Zach Ertz and Golden Tate each had five receptions. Ertz logged 52 yards, while Tate had 46 yards and a TD.

The Saints should prevail here, but the Eagles could be worth backing +8 on the Point Spread with Paddy Power at 20/21.
