Divisional Weekend: Best Bets

We are down to eight teams in the NFL playoffs, with four fascinating match-ups on the slate across Saturday and Sunday for Divisional Weekend.

After a stunning Super Wild Card Weekend that saw comebacks, drama and underdog victories, what might unfold in the battle to reach Championship Sunday? As always we’ve been checking out the best props and punts across the weekend.

First up, the Kansas City Chiefs look to reach a fourth AFC title game on the spin as the Jacksonville Jaguars travel to Missouri. Protagonists of a 0-27 comeback against the Los Angeles Chargers, the Jags have now won six games-in-a row to reach this point but one Patrick Mahomes will make going to seven-and-zero a tall task.

Running mate Travis Kelce was one of the Chiefs’ stars of their playoff runs for the last two seasons and will be a handful for the Jags’ shaky d-line. Therefore, for the Chiefs to win, Mahomes to throw 300+ yards and Kelce to score 2+ TDs, a boosted 6/1 offering with bet365 looks good value.

Saturday’s second game comes from Lincoln Financial Field as the Philadelphia Eagles welcome the Minnesota Vikings-conquering New York Giants. As NFC top seeds, Nick Sirianni’s side were spectators last weekend and lost to Tampa Bay in last season’s Divisionals.

Here, however, the Eagles have homefield advantage in Philly where only the Washington Commanders have been victorious this term from week 11’s surprise result. This clash is a rerun of the final game of the season, where Jalen Hurts returned to see the Eagles pick up the win but only by a score of 22-16, with the Giants having rested many of their players.

Hurts is capable of grabbing a game by the throat of course, but it could be the impact of Daniel Jones that is worth consideration. Having thrown 301 yards in Minneapolis, the Giants’ QB also ran 78 yards which was a franchise playoffs record. The Giants looks handy after an impressive show against Minnesota and if a 3/1 price with LiveScoreBet does not suit, for Jones to rush 44.5+ yds at 5/6 with PaddyPower, might.

Nevertheless, it is hard to see Hurts being upstaged even if the result goes against the home side, indeed he will surely rival Mahomes as Saturday’s star QB. For Hurts to throw the most passing yards of the day’s two games, a 4/1 price with Betfred is worth a thought.

For Bills-Bengals props, check out our specials on-site, and the remaining match-up closes out the weekend as the Bay City rollers themselves, the San Francisco 49ers, entertain a Dallas Cowboys side who exposed Tampa Bay at Raymond James.

That game saw over 650+ passing yds and Brock Purdy and Dak Prescott look set to thrill here. Both grabbed three passing TDs in the wildcards, and for a both to notch a combined 5+ passing TDs this weekend will reach a 4/1 price. However, it won’t just be a passing-dominated game with both teams able to run the football with ease. Christian McCaffrey continues to impress by the game, whilst the explosive Tony Pollard has the ammo to break through arguably the toughest defence in the NFL right now. Going along the same lines, a combined 149+ rushing yards at 5/2 appears likely.

Across the board, we’re looking at a number of rolling accas with big games for Travis Kelce, Stefon Diggs, AJ Brown and CeeDee Lamb and all to notch over 69 passing yards at 13/2 odds. All three prices with William Hill.
