Best Online NFL Betting Bets to Make this Divisional Round Weekend
Posted by: Mike Davis
This online NFL betting weekend, sportsbook players can take full advantage of the enticing action bookmakers have put together. Specifically, the NFL will hold their divisional round matchup this weekend, opening the door on ample 2 team teaser betting opportunities. So, without any further ado, let’s break down the best bets players can make in each matchup this playoff betting weekend.
Atlanta Falcons vs. Philadelphia Eagles || NFC Divisional Round
This will likely end up being one of the best matchups of the weekend, given how well these two matchup against one another. Unsurprisingly, the Eagles have opened as the underdogs, due to being without potential MVP candidate: Carson Wentz. Notwithstanding the regular season success Philly enjoyed with Nick Foles, online NFL betting bookmakers don’t think the Eagles can get the job done against Atlanta. And considering what the Falcons did to the Rams this past weekend, who don’t have a bit of playoff experience, it’s safe to assume that Atlanta will be doing the same to the Eagles. Who are equally as inexperienced.
All that being said, bettors should probably stick to the spread on this one. The line is set at 3 points, with the Falcons being pegged as the favorites. While many playoff betting players might assume this one will go down to the wire, it wouldn’t be shocking to see Atlanta pull away by more than 3.
New England Patriots vs. Tennessee Titans || AFC Divisional Round
There’s no ifs, ands, or buts about this one; the Patriots will likely steamroll the Titans this weekend. Yea Tennessee is coming off a huge upset over the Chiefs, but that franchise is led by Andy Reid, not Bill Belichick. Not to mention the fact that Kansas City struggled with inconsistency all season long. Ultimately, the steep odds out on the Pats make the totals and spread lines the most appealing. If you had to choose between the two, you should probably side with the over.
Pitts. Steelers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars || AFC Divisional Round
Another great matchup, albeit, online NFL betting sportsbooks also feel confident about this one. In short, the Steelers are pegged as massive favorites straight up. But considering that the Jags upset Pittsburgh earlier this season; players might want to take a shot on Jacksonville. The odds are currently set at +292 for Jacksonville, so this could end up being one of the best predictions of the year. That being said, the Steelers have been performing phenomenally as of late, or rather all season long, and have without a doubt been one of the most consistent teams this year. But still, those odds merit a small wager.
Minnesota Vikings vs. New Orleans Saints || NFC Divisional Round
The last contest of this playoff betting weekend, this will likely end up being the best matchup of the weekend. Both teams matchup great; the Saints high-powered offense is a great fit for the Vikings’ foreboding defense. Considering how difficult this matchup will be to predict, fans will want to stick to the over/under line.
