SATURDAY, JANUARY 9TH
INDIANAPOLIS COLTS @ BUFFALO BILLS
-6.5 BUFFALO BILLS
The Bills are a scoring machine and are averaging 47 points a game in their last three contests and in their seven wins at home are going for 34 points a game. QB Josh Allen has been tremendous and the trade in the off season for WR S. Diggs has easily been the best trade in the league. Colts QB P. Rivers has had a nice season getting Indy to the playoffs, but he can't be trusted and a perfect example of that is how they struggled late last week against the Jaguars when their playoff lives stood in the balance.
THE BUFFALO BILLS WIN BY 17-24
LOS ANGELES RAMS @ SEATTLE SEAHAWKS
OVER 42.5 POINTS
I agree that this game looks like a "stone cold" under (both matchups between these two NFC West rivals went under this season) but I like what I saw from Rams backup QB John Wolford and it's time Seattle starts rolling on offense again with Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. The Rams have weapons on offense as well and this game goes over in the third meeting between these two.
THE OVER 42.5 WILL WIN BY 5-8 POINTS
TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS @ WASHINGTON FOOTBALL TEAM
-7.5 TAMPA BAY BUCCANEERS
The TOMpa Bay Buccaneers offense has been on fire putting up 40+ point games the last two weeks and have 19 TDs over the last four weeks with 9 of them going for 20 yards or more. At 43, the GOAT, Tom Brady had 40 TD Passes with 12 of them coming in the last 4 weeks. Washington has a solid defense, but unfortunately none of them play offense and that's what will be the demise of Washington on Saturday night.
THE TOMPA BAY BUCCANEERS WIN BY 13-17
SUNDAY, JANUARY 10TH
BALTIMORE RAVENS @ TENNESSEE TITANS
OVER 54.5 POINTS
Baltimore and QB L. Jackson have a lot to prove since they are 0-2 in the last 2 seasons in the playoffs. They have been hot lately averaging 37 points a game in their last 5 games (5-0 during that stretch BTW). Both teams are at the top of the rankings in rushing and look out for rookie running back JK Dobbins who had 160 on the ground last week for the Ravens. On the Titans side we know they can score when you have Ryan Tannehill (40 total TDS) and Derrick Henry (2027 yards rushing) but their defense is a real issue. Tennessee yielded 439 points this season. That 439 points is the most points a division winning team has given up in over 20 years.
THE OVER 54.5 WILL WIN BY 9-15 POINTS
CHICAGO BEARS @ NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
-9.5 NEW ORLEANS SAINTS
The Bears are extremely fortunate to even be in the playoffs and looked like trash last week against the Packers at home. The Saints might be jinxed in the playoffs as we all know, but when you have Alvin Kamara on your team he should just take care of any issues you have as a team. The Bears are just 25th in the league in total offense and the Saints are 4th in overall yards allowed in the NFL. This could be a case where the "backdoor" could be open at the end of the game, but a 3rd grader would have enough sense to bet on Brees and not Trubisky.
THE NEW ORLEANS SAINTS WIN BY 11-18 POINTS
CLEVELAND BROWNS @ PITTSBURGH STEELERS
-6 PITTSBURGH STEELERS
The Browns snuck into the playoffs and now are dealing with COVID issues and will not have head coach Kevin Stefanski for Sunday's clash against the Steelers. Maybe head coach of Pittsburgh, Mike Tomlin has been playing possum for the last month after the Steelers started the season 11-0 (who knows?). A couple things I do know is that historically the Steelers own the Browns and in two games against them this year Pittsburgh averaged 30 points a game. Speaking of history the Steelers in their last 2 playoff games at home they have scored 30 and 42 points and it's way overdue to see Big Ben and his offense put up a big game and big numbers.
THE PITTSBURGH STEELERS WIN BY 13-20 POINTS
