It’s time for the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs!
Throughout the regular season, I’ve given you my best ATS bet for every game. I’m doing it again for the post season.
If you don’t care about the spread and just want to know my picks for winning every game, check out my Currency Picks article here.

Let’s dive into my predictions for all four NFL Divisional Round games.
NFL Divisional Round Betting
Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Kansas City Chiefs
The Chiefs have a few red flags when it comes to covering big spreads. First, they have the second-worst red-zone defense in the NFL, allowing opponents to score a touchdown on 67.27% of their red-zone trips against them. It’s hard to cover more than a touchdown when you can’t limit your opponents to field goals when they get into your red zone.
Another problem is that of turnovers. Their average turnover margin this season is -0.2, which ranks them 22nd in the NFL. Both factors leave the door open for potential Jaguars coverage.
New York Giants vs Philadelphia Eagles
It’s time for midnight to strike and the New York Giants’ Cinderella season to turn into a pumpkin. They have a net yield of -0.4 yards per play this season, and they can’t stop the run, ranking 30th in opposing yards per carry.
I expect the Eagles to crush them and win this game easily.
Cincinnati Bengals vs. buffalo bills
Dallas Cowboys vs. San Francisco 49ers
The odds of the games are updated periodically and are subject to change.
