The second round of the NFL playoffs start today and the slate looks phenomenal. Every game is going to be a battle, regardless of what the spread says. Because it’s the NFL playoffs. None of these teams are going to roll over and die this week. They’re all too good. Not like the Bears last weekend in the Nickelodeon game. No this weekend of NFL games are all going to be high scoring, high flying affairs. So it’s time to put your nuts on the table and put some money on these games. Because nothing makes watching football more fun than winning money while watching. Let’s get to it.
Rams at Packers
Okay so maybe not every game will be a high scoring affair. This is the only game of the weekend that looks like it’s going to be a defensive battle. And it’s all because of the Ram’s defense. Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey have helped to make the Ram’s defense dominant. Their ability to take over a game makes me think this matchup is going to be a challenge for the Packer’s offense. So while I’d want to take the under of 46.5 I just can’t. I won’t bet on the under. It feels like rooting against points and fun. I’ll just recommend to not bet on the over in this game.
But since the Rams have such a good defense it makes their spread prop so good. Rams +7 feels like a lock. The Rams defense should be able to keep the game competitive all day. And if Jared Goff can grip a football in the cold with his surgically repaired thumb then the Rams might even be able to win this game. But the real play for this game is Rams+7.
Ravens at Bills
All of these games are awesome, but this is the one I might be looking forward to the most. Lamar Jackson vs Josh Allen. The high flying pass happy Bills vs the race car team Ravens. This will be a high scoring affair no doubt. The Ravens defense may be really good, but across the board it does not match up with the Bills. And the same can be said about the Bills defense to the Ravens. So look for points points points in this game.
