When these two teams last met, we almost saw the unthinkable happen in the shocking incident involving Damar Hamlin. That game was eventually abandoned, but now, three weeks later, the #2-seeded Bills (13-3) are hosting the No. 3-seeded Bengals (12-4) for a spot in the AFC Championship game. It’s Josh Allen vs. Joe Burrow in what promises to be a HUGE clash.

CINCINNATI BENGALS: $3.05 (via bet365, TopSport)

BUFFALO BILLS: $1.43 (about Betr)


The biggest problem for the Bengals is the decrepit state of their offensive line, with injuries along Joe Burrow’s protective front.

It becomes all the more difficult for Cincy to score as the backups try to keep Burrow upright and able to direct offense.

Cincy is lucky because since Von Miller’s injury, Buffalo haven’t looked quite as impressive when it comes to quarterbacks, but it’s still a big problem for the Bengals to get a big enough score to beat the Bills.

Burrow should still link with one of his receivers for a TD: He hit his longtime favorite target Ja’Marr Chase nine times this season, look for the former LSU teammates to make it 10 against Buffalo.

  • Total Cincinnati Points – Under 23.5: $1.60 (via bet365)
  • Ja’Marr Chase Anytime TD Score: $2.25 (via bet365)

AFC Wild Card Playoffs - Miami Dolphins vs. Buffalo Bills

Last week’s wild-card win over Miami was far from convincing as quarterback Josh Allen looked scratchy and struggled to make non-hero plays.

The Bengals defense will have Allen working harder than Miami, but at home the Bills offense should continue to work – they haven’t scored under 30 points in their last four games – and continue their winning streak. Allen should link up with Stefon Diggs for a TD and scurry for one himself as well.

  • Josh Allen 200+ yards, Josh Allen Anytime TD + Stefon Diggs 50+ yards, Stefon Diggs Anytime TD: $6 (via bet365)


The Bills are a ridiculous 7-1 at home this season but only 4-5 against the spread. Cincinnati, on the other hand, is an exceptional 7-2 when it comes to covering the line on the road. The Bills should pull off a narrow win as the Bengals don’t have enough offense with that holey O-line to put them to the sword, but Cincinnati will rack up enough points to cover them. Buffalo 24 – Cincinnati 21.

THE CHOICE: Cincinnati +6.5 $1.83 (via Betr)

What a game. The closest matchup of the division round, Cowboys-Niners not only commemorates the glory years of both franchises, but also pits two of the NFL’s best defenses against each other while providing what is probably the best opportunity to prove both teams. ve hoped for the division round.

DALLAS COWBOYS: $2.77 (via TopSport)

SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS: $1.50 (via bet365)


The only thing we learned from the Seahawks’ games against the Niners last week is that the only thing you can do with confidence against San Francisco is throw the ball.

Geno Smith and DK Metcalf routinely broke the secondary for big wins. So look for quarterback Dak Prescott attempting to beat CeeDee Lamb yards over the lead.

Considering both defenses are top-five units, Dallas will try often and early to get this going and open the game: Here’s how Prescott’s passing yards and Lamb for a TD see the game before the Cowboys try to dash at that imposing Niners defense.

  • Dak Prescott 200+ passing yards, CeeDee Lamb anytime TD: $2.60 (via bet365)

NFC Wildcard Playoffs - Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers

That the Niners rely on a quarterback in the seventh round is still absolutely remarkable, but despite some early hiccups against Seattle, Brock Purdy was great in the second half of last week, finishing with over 330 passing yards.

It certainly helps when your offense includes all-doing weapons like Christian McCaffrey and Deebo Samuel, along with excellent receiving options like Brandon Aiyuk and tight end George Kittle.

Look for McCaffrey and Samuel to score again and help Purdy get the Niners offense clicking.

  • Christian McCaffrey anytime TD + Deebo Samuel anytime TD: $4.20 (via bet365)


The Niners are 9-1 at home this season while the Cowboys are 5-4, but San Francisco is also an absolutely ridiculous 8-2 against the spread on their home field. Dallas has only covered away 4-4-1 this season… so keep an eye out for the Niners and their defense to slow Dallas down in the second half and squeeze out a narrow win.

THE CHOICE: San Francisco -3.5 $1.86 (about re)
