We’ve reached the Divisional Round with this season’s NFL predictions and are hoping to land a near-10/1 accumulator from handicap picks on all four matches.
Teams are now just two wins away from featuring in Super Bowl LV, which is scheduled to take place at Raymond James Stadium in Tampa on February 7.
Packers -6.5 points versus Rams @ 20/23
Green Bay have always been seen as a standing dish on home turf in the play-offs and freezing conditions at Lambeau Field should again be in their favour this weekend.
Aaron Rodgers is well used to overcoming the cold and has been in cracking form this term, aided by having elite attacking weapons in Aaron Jones and Davante Adams.
The Rams will hope the NFL’s number one defence can keep them in the game but may struggle on offence, with banged-up quarterback Jared Goff looking short of confidence when stepping back in for the injured John Wolford last week.
Ravens +3.5 points versus Bills @ 3/4
Both of these teams are on hot streaks, with Baltimore claiming six consecutive victories and Buffalo a magnificent seven straight successes.
Bright young playmakers Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen are each capable of spectacular plays in the air and on the ground, so this tie could go either way.
However, we just feel the Ravens have greater overall balance on attack and a superior defence, so they are rated a percentage pick in receipt of more than a field goal start.
Chiefs -9.5 points versus Browns @ 5/6
Cleveland cost us a 10/1 Super Wild Card Weekend pay-out when upsetting Pittsburgh but we’re taking them on again with the defending Super Bowl champions in our Divisional Round NFL predictions.
The Browns overcame some notable absences to prevail in a high-scoring shoot-out with the Steelers but will struggle to keep their fairytale run going against the league’s outstanding team.
Kansas City go into this match fully rested and refreshed from a 20-day break, so we’re not expecting them to ease off when their outclassed opponents cry enough.
Saints -2.5 points versus Buccaneers @ 4/5
Drew Brees gets the nod to come out on top in this fascinating showdown with fellow 40-something quarterback Tom Brady at the Mercedes-Benz Superdome.
Brady has been well protected by Tampa Bay’s stellar offensive line during a five-game winning streak but is expected to be put under far more pressure by New Orleans’ fired-up defence.
The Saints were far from convincing for long periods before finally seeing off Chicago last week, but 34-23 and 38-3 wins over the Bucs during the regular season give them a clear psychological edge.
