🏈 THE MAIN EVENT: Is the Mahomes tax worth it?

🔥 EXPERT PICKS: Ryan and Jay are bullish on the Chiefs

💪 POWER HOUR: Bet Credit for Giants-Eagles!

🏈 YOU SHOULD KNOW: How the teams have fared ATS

THE MAIN EVENT

Jaguars (+9.5) @ Chiefs

PointsBet Data and Insights

KICKOFF: 4:30 p.m. ET

KEY FACTS: Patrick Mahomes is favored for his 12th straight playoff start. And it’s a big number, requiring Chiefs backers to cough up the “Mahomes tax.” 🧾 The Jags are averaging 29.2 points over their last six games – equal to the Chiefs for the season. And as an underdog this season, Jacksonville is 8-5 – both ATS AND outright.

TRENDING: KC is 2-7-1 ATS in its last 10 but 6-2 in its last eight playoff games at home. Trevor Lawrence has never lost a game on Saturday 🤯: 3-0 in high school, 32-0 at Clemson, 3-0 with the Jags.

INSIGHT: Despite all that jack 💸 pouring in on the Jags, the line has inched up to 9.5.

EXPERT PICKS

PointsBet studio host Ryan Leaf and NBC lead betting analyst Jay Croucher clash on Eagles-Giants. Ariel Epstein expects the Jags to air it out.

THE QUARTERBACK

Chiefs -9.5 vs. Jags (-110)
“Even when the Jags were almost perfect at Arrowhead (Nov. 13), they still lost by double digits. Andy Reid with 10+ days to prepare is pretty unbeatable.”
Giants +7.5 vs. Eagles (-110)
“I can’t make myself go straight Giants ML, but it won’t surprise me if they win. We’ll know pretty early, depending on how the Eagles use Hurts.”

THE BRAIN

Chiefs -9.5 vs. Jags (-110)
“The Jacksonville pass defense has no prayer against Mahomes at home off a bye.”
Eagles -7.5 vs. Giants (-110)
“Hurts is off the injury report and the defense is healthy. The Giants can’t stop the run.”

THE PROP QUEEN

Jags QB Trevor Lawrence Over 38.5 Passing Attempts (-110)
“KC is strong against the run and allows the third most pass attempts. Lawrence had 40 in their earlier meeting.”
Eagles RB Miles Sanders Under 10.5 Receiving Yards (-160)
“Kenneth Gainwell has taken on the receiving role, and the Giants allow the fourth fewest receiving yards per game to RBs.”

G-MEN v BIRDS

MAKE THE CASE 👨🏽‍⚖️

PointsBet Data and Insights

Four options for Giants-Eagles (8:15 p.m. ET):

  • Eagles -7.5: Philly is rested and throttled the Giants 48-22 on Dec. 11. Saquon Barkley shrunk in that game (9 carries, 28 yards).
  • Giants +7.5: Can Jalen Hurts really shoulder the load? Will Philly coaches protect him 🤔, and will the surging G-Men target him?
  • Over 48: Daniel (Crazylegs) Jones has rushed for 169 yards in his last two games and turned New York’s band of misfits 🥸 into a respectable receiving corps. Philly, as we know, is loaded.
  • Under 48: Philly’s league-best passing ‘D’ will spell doom for the Giants, whose top WR, Isaiah Hodgins, was a waiver claim. The Eagles, with a big lead, could nurse the clock.
INSIDE THE LINES

ASK THE TRADER 🏈🏀🎾⛳

Our bettors believe there is NO way the Chiefs lose today at Arrowhead.

PointsBet sports analyst Mike Korn breaks down today’s lines.

What stands out in Jags-Chiefs? Is it that SO many clients are willing to risk their parlays by adding a -500 ML?

  • “Yes, an astounding 97% of our current moneyline handle is on Kansas City. Many bettors know that the Chiefs went just 6-10-1 ATS but still believe they definitely will win.”

Giants-Philly hasn’t budged. I’ve heard that most of the public is on the G-Men? Is that so, and could the spread sneak down to 7?

  • “We have 70% of the spread bet count and 65% of the spread handle on the Giants. Despite that, we recently shifted the line to 8 after opening at 7.5. I don’t see any way this game closes within a touchdown.”

Who's The Man? Stefon Diggs knows.

Check out Divisional Weekend Specials under NFL Futures and you will find …

  • HIGHEST SCORING GAME: Bengals @ Bills (+270). Pass on Jags-Chiefs (+190) in favor of Josh Allen and Joe Cool 😎.
  • LOWEST SCORING TEAM: Giants (+320). We’ll go with the chalk considering how Philly bruises 🤕 opponents – 20.2 ppg.
  • MOST RECEIVING YARDS: Stefon Diggs  (+600). Ja’Marr Chase (+500) is favored, but we dig Diggs against Cincinnati’s 24th-ranked passing ‘D.’
  • MOST RUSHING YARDS: Christian McCaffrey (+350). Likely a three-horse race 🏇 with Barkley (+350) and Travis Etienne (+400), we like CMC. Or is it Run DMC?
  • LOWEST SCORING GAME: Jags @ Chiefs (+400). Our cajones play incorporates the weather forecast – 40 and rainy. And Trevor Lawrence is slightly 🙄 prone to throwing picks.
