Hey, that Super Wild Card Weekend thing certain did stink, eh? The only good game was the Lions and Rams, and we acquired cheated out of a Blizzard Bowl when the wussies in the NFL front office environment moved the Costs-Steelers recreation again a working day.
Very seriously: When did we start out relocating soccer games? No way this game gets moved in the 1950s.
In any case, we march on to Divisional Round 7 days, wherever the video games are … whole of massive spreads across America’s leading sports activities betting applications.
Ravens -9.5 around the Texans. San Francisco -9.5 over the Packers. Lions -6.5 above the Bucs. Only close recreation is the Expenses -2.5 in excess of the Chiefs.
Of training course, just simply because the publications say blowout does not necessarily mean just about anything, but uh … yeah. The 49ers and the Ravens glimpse like the cream of the NFL crop, the Buccaneers are pretenders (proper?), and the Chiefs-Expenses, very well, two decades ago, this overall would be like 55 or some thing. This week, it is 45.5, and truthfully, that may possibly be way too large.
In shorter: I’m a minimal yawny about this slate.
Now, get me to Championship Week and give me the 49ers and Lions and the Ravens and both the Costs or Chiefs, and I am entertained. But I do fear this week is likely to be … not all that entertaining.

But I have been erroneous about basically every thing in the NFL this calendar year, so why get started listening to me now?
The +1000 or much more parlay of the week
Now we’re -19. Went with a 6-crew moneyline parlay last 7 days for the reason that I’m in a panic. The Rams and Cowboys did me in. Oh perfectly. This 7 days … in an exertion at profitability … and headed to FanDuel … I am heading with … 4 player props. Why not.
Lamar Jackson in excess of 225.5 yards passing, Baker Mayfield over 260.5 passing yards, Christian McCaffrey in excess of 89.5 dashing yards, and Josh Allen above 43.5 dashing yards. It all comes in at +1141.
Rationale: The Ravens and Bucs are enjoying two groups that things the run and bleed out to the move in the Texans and Lions. Ergo, passing yardage overs. The Packers, I’m wondering, will concede the operate in an effort and hard work to not get blown out of the water. Ergo, McCaffrey. And as for Josh Allen? If they are successful, it is simply because he’s functioning wild. If they’re dropping, he’ll have to operate wild.
The on-paper, no question, three-group teaser that is certain to lose
Down to 9-9 with these at BetMGM, as the Cowboys failed spectacularly. Now: With four video games on the docket is a a few-crew teaser ever going to be a very good guess? I’m sure not, but why end now. Ravens -3.5, 49ers -3.5, Lions giving a 50 %-level.
Most loved that would make me anxious
Nailed the Eagles as the nervous beloved previous week. This week I think it has to be the Bills.
The Mahomes-led Chiefs offense is generally likely to be perilous until finally confirmed otherwise, and the Chiefs protection is not to be trifled with. This feels like a 20-17, last team to have the ball wins form of match.
Participant props I like
Got a pair of W’s past week with Jahmyr Gibbs heading around both equally his receiving yards and receptions prop, up to — barf — 22-37 on the season.
This 7 days, I like the props I parlayed earlier mentioned as very well as …
Deebo Samuel around 15.5 dashing yards at -114 at FanDuel: Continuing the 49ers topic from above, I be expecting them to run all in excess of the Packers. Why not Samuel?
Baker Mayfield around 275, 300, 325, and 350 passing yards at FanDuel at +132, +230, +400, and +700: Definitely these are not complete-unit bets, but I definitely believe the Bucs are going to arrive out throwing and not prevent throwing.
Did I Get The DraftKings Milly Maker?
I go on my great job of hardly ever successful the Milly Maker, thank you extremely substantially.
My mortal lock 5-star only for my most effective consumers can not get rid of confirmed very best bet of the week
Completed the standard period at 9-9, then took the Cowboys final 7 days.
Gimme the Ravens laying 9.5 this 7 days. Listed here we go!
