We have finally made the playoffs. The regular season is over, and we only have 14 teams left who can win the Lombardi trophy. Both the Kansas City Chiefs and Philadelphia Eagles won their conferences and so have got a bye into the next round. However, we have got six games to go through before we get to them being involved.

Seattle Seahawks @ San Francisco 49ers

The season so far

The Seahawks have had a great season when you consider how everyone thought they were going to struggle this year. With Russell Wilson being traded away to Denver the playoffs looked a long way off.

However, with a 9-8 record the Seahawks have got themselves a spot in the wildcard round. Geno Smith has been a revelation at QB and stud wide receivers D.K Metcalf and Tyler Lockett have kept the offence winning games.

San Francisco got themselves another NFC West division title finishing with a 13-4 record. Despite injury problems at QB, the 49ers are still a top-quality outfit largely due to the coaching of Kyle Shanahan.

Trading for stud running back, Christian McCaffery, has been a huge boost and one that could push them to the Lombardi. Not only is the offence playing well but the defence is easily in the top 5 of the league.

Team News

The Seahawks are looking pretty good injury wise going into this game. The offence only has tight end, Noah Fant questionable for the game with a knee injury.

On the defence, Shelby Harris and Al Woods are both questionable with knee and ankle worries respectively. If they lose both guys from the line it will be tough to overcome.

San Francisco also look healthy on their offence with only Christian McCaffery and left guard, Aaron Banks questionable with knee injuries. Both are expected to play.

On the defence they do have a few worries with Javon Kinlaw and Arik Armstead both questionable with knee and ankle injuries. Also, Dre Greenlaw is questionable with a back injury.

San Francisco 49ers - over 42.5 points

The San Francisco 49ers are a strong team who should be capable of winning this game. However, at 1/5 they are very short to be backing. However, one good bet you can go for is over 42.5 total points at 37/40.

The 49ers could easily put up 30 points in this game and have done on multiple occasions this season. Also, the Seahawks defence have given up plenty of points in games as well as score them.

The second bet I like for this game is George Kittle to score anytime. Kittle has scored seven touchdowns in the last four games. Also, two of them came against the Seahawks when they played each other four weeks ago. He has a great connection with Brock Purdy and I don’t see that changing now.

LA Chargers @ Jacksonville Jaguars

The season so far

The LA Chargers have been in and out of the playoffs over the last few years but haven’t done much when in it. They went 10-7 this year and look capable of getting a win in this game.

They have had to deal with significant injuries this year which have hampered them but most of their guys are fit now. Having Keenan Allen and Mike Williams available will be a massive for the Chargers and along with Austin Ekeler are a potent offence.

The Jaguars have struggled badly over the last few years, but this year has been different. Doug Pederson coming in at head coach has done wonders for QB Trevor Lawrence and he is just getting better.

Jacksonville has plenty of playmakers on their offence and have although they are underdogs, they have a good chance to win this. Not only is the offence scoring points, but the defence is looking better as well.

Team News

The Chargers have a near clean bill of health after their week 18 game. The only issue they have is with Mike Williams who went out of the game with a back injury. He is now questionable for this game against the Jaguars.

More good news is that the Jaguars are looking healthy as well. Trevor Lawrence still has a toe injury but that didn’t stop him last week and it won’t this week. The only other issue they have is Brandon Scherff who is questionable with an abdomen injury.

Jacksonville Jaguars +2.5 points

This is one of the tighter games in this season’s wildcard games. You can get +2.5 points on the Jaguars at 10/11 which looks to be a good bet. This could easily be a one score game and so taking the points seem the obvious move.

Secondly, you must like Keenan Allen to score anytime. Allen has looked great for the Chargers since he has come back from injury and is a favourite target of Justin Herbert. Jacksonville is also tied 19th when it comes to giving up passing touchdowns and Allen looks a good option.

Miami Dolphins @ Buffalo Bills

The season so far

The Dolphins have had a bit of an up and down season but managed to get in the playoffs on the last day of the season. They started well but injuries to all their QB’s have caused them to struggle recently.

Tua Tagovaiola has had multiple concussion problems and with him out they have struggled a lot. Their defence has improved as the season has gone along but this is going to be an uphill battle against the Bills.

Buffalo have had a great season on the field finishing with a 13-3 record. Unfortunately, much of it has been forgotten due to the horrific scenes we all saw with Damar Hamlin in Cincinnati.

Thankfully Hamlin has now been released from hospital and is recovering. How it will effect the Bills is an unknown, but you must feel it will give them more motivation to win.

Team News

The Dolphins have a huge list of questionable players on the offence. Tua is out due to his concussions and Teddy Bridgewater is questionable with a finger problem. Raheem Mostert, Jeff Wilson and Jaylen Waddle are all questionable along with multiple o-linemen.

Defensively they don’t look to bad, but they have two big concerns at linebacker with Bradley Chubb and Jaelan Phillips. Chubb has an ankle injury and Phillips a toe injury which would be a massive worry if they miss out.

Buffalo is looking strong now with only a few injuries to speak of. The offence is almost completely injury free with only a few guys missing who have been out for some time.

The defence will be without Damar Hamlin for some time now but the only play who is questionable is Jordan Poyer. He has a knee injury and might miss the game against Miami.

Buffalo Bills over 4.5 touchdowns

4/6

Buffalo is -13.5 point favourites in this matchup and its difficult to get too excited to bet that or them at such short odds to win. However, one bet that looks good is the total amount of touchdowns in the game. Over 4.5 touchdowns look a good shout at 4/6.

My other bet for this game is Dawson Knox to score anytime. Knox is a big redzone target for the Bills and Josh Allen does always look for him. Also, the Dolphins can be beaten through the passing game and so Knox is appealing at 11/5

New York Giants @ Minnesota Vikings

The season so far

The New York Giants have had a great season so far and have the potential to keep it going. They went 9-7-1 which is a massive improvement compared to the last few years.

Saquon Barkley has looked fit and healthy this year but also the coaching from Brian Daboll has made a massive difference to both the offence and defence.

The Vikings have also had a great season winning the NFC North with a record of 13-4. With great offensive weapons like Justin Jefferson and Dalvin Cook this shouldn’t be a shock but they have struggled recently.

Trading for T.J Hockenson has been a great move for the offence, and they should be looking to win this game. However, their defence isn’t the best and you can score on them relatively easily.

Team News

The Giants offence is looking healthy now with only Jon Feliciano questionable. He has a back injury but should be good to play.

The defence is not so lucky though with a few big injuries causing concerns. Leonard Williams has a neck injury and Azeez Ojulari has an ankle problem. Also, Adoree Jackson has a knee injury and if any of them miss out that will be bad news.

Minnesota have also got a near clean bill of health of the offence. Their only issue is centre, Garrett Bradbury, who has a back injury.

Defensively they also seem to be largely in a good place but do have a couple of questionable players. Za’Darius Smith is potentially out due to personal reasons and Harrison Smith has a knee injury. However, both are expected to play.

T.J Hockenson to score anytime

Another game that looks like it could be tight makes you want to move away from an outright selection. However, one bet that looks good is in the total points market. At 46.5 points the under looks good at evens money.

Another bet that looks good is T.J Hockenson to score anytime. The tight end has been a huge asset to Kirk Cousins since he was traded from Detroit and at 17/10, he looks a great price.

Baltimore Ravens @ Cincinnati Bengals

The season so far

The Baltimore Ravens have had a decent season despite some big injury problems again this year. They finished the regular season with a 10-7 record and if they had stayed healthy could have won this division.

Losing Lamar Jackson for as long as they have had has been tough and it looks like he won’t be back to play in this game. Their defence has been great all season and will always give them a chance in any game.

Cincinnati have had another good year managing to defend their AFC North crown. With a record of 12-4 they managed to show that last year wasn’t a fluke and that they can win any game.

Losing Jamarr Chase for a few games in the middle of the season didn’t help but he is back and fully fit now. They should be strong enough to win this game and can make another run for the Lombardi.

Team News

The biggest worry for Baltimore is that Lamar Jackson will still be out with a knee injury. Its looking likely that he wont play but also back-up Tyler Huntley has a shoulder problem. Huntley will be a game time decision but if he doesn’t play it will be Anthony Brown again.

Also, Gus Edwards looks like he might miss the game due to a concussion and they have a few problems on the defence as well. Marlon Humphrey has a shoulder problem and Marcus Peters a calf injury, leaving them both questionable.

Cincinnati on the other hand is looking healthy going into this game. The only issues they have is Tee Higgins having an illness and Alex Cappa being out with an ankle injury. Losing Cappa is a big problem, but they should be able to cover that loss.

Tee Higgins to score anytime

The Cincinnati Bengals looks a strong selection for this game but at 1/5 is very short to be backing. However, over 4.5 touchdowns in the game looks a solid bet at evens money. The Bengals are a high scoring offence, and the Ravens can get a couple of touchdowns through the run game.

Another bet that looks nice in this matchup is Tee Higgins to score anytime. Higgins has been great all season and will be a favoured target of Joe Burrow in this game. At 11/8 he looks a good price.

Dallas Cowboys @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

The season so far

The Dallas Cowboys have had a strong season finishing 2nd in the NFC East with a 12-5 record. They have looked a solid outfit who has some great offensive weapons with the likes of Tony Pollard and CeeDee Lamb.

Defensively the Cowboys have also been strong under the tutelage of Dan Quinn over the last two years. They are considered a top 10 defence and with Micah Parsons will prove a tough opponent for the Buccaneers.

Tampa Bay have had a strange season and showed signs of struggling despite winning their division. They finished with an 8-9 record and have conceded more points over the season then they have scored.

Tom Brady has looked his age at times and the whole offence has struggled to be as good as they have been in the past.

Defensively the Bucs have looked solid over the season although you can score on them. This matchup will be a big test for them and despite being at home could easily be one and done.

Team News

The Cowboys have got a near clean bill of health going into this game. Their biggest worry is DeMarcus Lawrence having a foot injury, but he is expected to play.

The Bucs have got a few more concerns but most of them should be available to play despite being questionable. Donovan Smith and Robert Hainsey are both questionable on the o-line. Also, Vita Vea has a calf inury and is questionable for the game.

Dallas Cowboys -1.5

This is another tight matchup, but the Dallas Cowboys look the stronger all rounds. The handicap is set at the Cowboys being 1.5-point favourites and at 8/11 that looks a good price.

The other bet that looks good for this game is CeeDee Lamb to score anytime. The Bucs have been easy to beat over the top and Lamb is the main receiver on this Dallas team. He has a good chance of scoring.
