NFL Super Wildcard Weekend Best Bets

Jan 12, 2024

Well, folks, we have made it to the playoffs and we have six games that are to be played this weekend. Now for the playoffs, I am going to pick a winner plus throw in a bonus bet for each game to play with aka, what I will be betting on this weekend.

We start in Houston where we have an unexpected battle between two teams who at the beginning of September weren’t expected to be in the playoffs. But here we are as the Browns are back in Houston just a few weeks after torching the Texans. Now, while I don’t think the result from last time will change aka Cleveland winning. I do think the score will be closer than 36-22, I still do think the Browns cover the -2 spread which has a better odds than Cleveland’s money line which is -115 odds.

Saturday night is going to be a cold one as it will be -18 Celsius at kickoff. Kansas City will be a freezer as the boys from South Beach roll into town. The Dolphins in the cold have lost 10 straight and Tua is in games where the Temperature is below 45 degrees Fahrenheit is 0-4 and has had a passer rating of just 71.8 while completing just 55.5% of his passes. Now that you know I am rolling with the cold-weather Chiefs in January led by Patrick Mahomes. My Bonus bet is Travis Kelce’s Anytime Touchdown which is +100, rare territory for 87, plus he has 133 catches for 1,548 yards and has scored 16 touchdowns in 18 games in the playoffs in his career.

Sunday Afternoon in snowy Buffalo is where the Bills look to start their road to the team’s first-ever Lombardi. Snow of 1-3 feet is expected and the game may or may not be moved but I think it’ll stay put in Western New York. Now I think Buffalo will win but the spread number is way too high for my liking. Buffalo is 7-10 against the spread and in the team’s last 20 games, their opponents from the Steel City are 13-7 against the spread. Buffalo is also 3-7 ATS in their last 10 games when playing as the favourite. Pittsburgh +9 is -105.

Sunday Afternoon is a battle of Cheese and Cowboys as the Packers play the Cowboys in Jerry’s World. Now like all non-Dallas fans I want the Cowboys to suffer as it is funny to see. But in this game, I think Dallas who are 16-0 in their last 16 games at AT&T Stadium win the game. Short and sweet but the bet of the game that is risky but I can’t ignore is the over of 50.5 at -110. Now I know that the amount of high but Dallas has the offence to score and in Green Bay’s last 7 games, the total has gone over 6 times. With Dallas, the total has gone OVER in 5 of Dallas’ last 5 games when playing at home against Green Bay.

The Matthew Stafford Jared Goff Bowl caps off the day as Detroit is looking to win their first playoff game in 30 years and is hosting the first-ever playoff game at Ford Field. Now for as good of a story that the Lions have been this season, give me the Rams and the homecoming man in Stafford to rip the hearts out of Lions fans Sunday night. Now along with the Rams Winning, I have boosted the line from +3 to -1.5 which is +146, good value if you ask me.

The last game isn’t until Monday night and this is the spot where the Eagles get right and cover -3 for -110. Now for as bad Philly has looked, Tampa Bay ended the season by getting blasted by New Orleans at home and only scoring 9 points against the league-worst Carolina Panther last Sunday. I don’t think I need to say more, plus Philly’s head of security Dom Di Sandro is back on the sidelines for Philly, so Fly Eagles Fly.

Hi, my name is Griff and I'm a complete sports nut. I love to play sports, watch sports and most importantly bet on sports too. If I'm not watching or betting on sports, you can find me on the golf course, between the pipes as your average beer league goaltender. Although sports take up most of my life, I also love spending time with my two dogs, streaming usually a 90's Simpson's or attempting to read more books.
