🤔 WHAT WERE THE ODDS: The Jags shock the (betting) world

FIRST ON THE MENU

Dolphins (+13.5) @ Bills

PointsBet Data and Insights

KICKOFF: 1:00 p.m. ET

KEY FACTS: The line surged ↗️ after Miami shelved Tua Tagovailoa (concussion) and revealed that Teddy Bridgewater is questionable (knee, finger). That makes for a matchup between Josh Allen 🤩 and Skylar Thompson, a seventh-rounder from K-State. Oh yeah, and the Dolphins flailed down the stretch and went 3-6 on the road.

TRENDING: Miami has failed to cover its last four postseason games, and the Dolphins are 3-7-1 ATS in their last 11 in Buffalo. The Over ↗️ has hit 11 of the last 16 times in the series.

EXPERT PICKS

Our Hustle crew went a combined 4-2 on Saturday, highlighted by Ryan Leaf's clean sweep (49ers -10, Jags +2.5). Can he, props expert Ariel Epstein and NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher strike gold again?

THE QUARTERBACK

Giants +3 vs. Vikings (-110)
"I don't trust the Vikings or Kirk Cousins in a legacy-altering opportunity. Daniel Jones' legs are the difference. 24-14 Giants."
Bucs +2.5 vs. Cowboys (-110)
"No faith in Dak Prescott, Mike McCarthy and the Cowboys. Not much in the Bucs, either, but take the GOAT at home in the playoffs."

THE PROP QUEEN

Ravens-Bengals Over 3.5 FGs (-115)
"Each team allows 2.2 FGs per game. I have faith in Justin Tucker and Evan McPherson."
Dalvin Cook Over 16.5 Rush Attempts (-120)
"Cook carried it 28 times the last time the Vikes were in the wildcard round -- 2019 against the Saints. The Giants allow the fourth most rushing yards per game."

THE ACE CAPPER

Ravens +8.5 vs. Bengals (-110)
"The Bengals' O-line is banged up, and their offense has struggled against elite defenses, like the Ravens'."
Bucs +2.5 vs. Cowboys (-105)
"Dallas has had the NFL's fourth worst passing defense over the last five weeks. Brady and the Bucs still have the ceiling to exploit it."

GIANTS-VIKINGS PREVIEW

PROP IT UP

PointsBet Data and Insights

Here’s how we’d bet Giants (+3) @ Vikings (4:30 p.m. ET):

  • Giants QB Daniel Jones Under 240.5 Passing Yards (-115): Jones has a sad little receiving corps and topped this total only twice in 16 games.
  • Vikings QB Kirk Cousins Under 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (+130): Cousins has never thrown for multiple scores in a playoff game, and the Giants allowed a mere 21 passing TDs this season. A nice price too.
  • Giants RB Saquon Barkley Over 20.5 Receiving Yards (-125): Barkley racked up 49 receiving yards on eight catches – both season-highs – against Minny in Week 16.
  • Vikings Winning Margin 1-6 Points (+280): Minnesota won a ton of nail-biters, going 11-0 in one-possession affairs.

PointsBet Data and Insights

Here’s how we’d bet Ravens (+8.5) @ Bengals (8:15 p.m. ET):

🏈 [$40] Bengals WR Ja’Marr Chase Over 6.5 Receptions (+100): Joe Burrow’s bosom buddy has hauled in 7+ catches in eight straight games, including both regular-season matchups with the Ravens.

🏈 [$30] Ravens Under 16.5 Points (-140): Baltimore’s point totals without Lamar Jackson: 10, 16, 3, 17, 13, 16.

🏈 [$20] Bengals QB Joe Burrow Under 265.5 Passing Yards (-115): For all his brilliance, Burrow has exceeded this total in just one of four postseason game. And the Ravens can be nasty.

🏈 [$10] Ravens TE Mark Andrews Anytime TD (+290): The big TE has found the end zone five times in his last six games against Cincy.

PointsBet Data and Insights

  • Cowboys -2.5: The Cowboys went 12-5, and every victory came by at least a field goal.
  • Bucs +2.5: Tom Brady is 7-3 ATS as a postseason underdog 🐶; Tampa Bay has won four of its last five home games.
  • Over 45.5: The Cowboys score – and yield – touchdowns at a feverish rate. Six days after losing 40-34 to the Jags, they beat the Eagles by the same score 🤦.
  • Under 45.5: Final score when they met in Week 1: Bucs 19, Cowboys 3.

WHAT WERE THE ODDS? 💰

1. Cameron Dicker nailed a 23-yard field goal with 4:25 left in the half, boosting the Chargers’ lead to 27-0. The Jags looked dead 😓.

Odds: Jacksonville’s live odds were +2800. And a few savvy 🧠 PointsBet clients wagered $100 on it. Final score: 31-30! It marked the third-largest comeback in NFL postseason history.

2. Trevor Lawrence became the first to fire FOUR first-half playoff interceptions 😲 since Craig Morton in 1978.

Odds: We would have offered +5000 on something so preposterous.

3. Jordan Spieth shot a tidy 64 on Thursday at the Sony Open 🌺 to share the lead. It wouldn’t last.

Odds: Spieth trudged home in 75, leaving him on a banana boat for the weekend. His odds to miss the cut after the first round? Roughly +3000.
