NFL Division Round Best Bets

Tennessee Titans vs. Cincinnati Bengals Prediction

Click Here for Titans vs Bengals Odds

The first game I want to get into is going to be a battle between the Cincinnati Bengals and the Tennessee Titans. The Titans enter this game as a short three-point favorite at home. Joe Burrow and company will travel into the Music City with hopes to knock off the number one seed and land a spot in the AFC Championship game. The Titans, led by veteran signal-caller Ryan Tannehill will look to hold serve at home. The headline is this game is going to be the return of the best running back in the game in the form of Derrick Henry. Henry saw his season cut short, and many feared his season would be over. The King is going to return for this massive home game this week, and I believe he will be fresh in this game. The Bengals defense has shown they can really struggle against complete offenses. If Henry is in form, this will be a runaway game in favor of the Titans. I love this Titans team, and the world continues to doubt them. They have the better defense here, and being at home for games like this and well-rested essentially off a bye week is a massive factor as well. I am trusting the more well-coached bunch home team here, and I am very confident in the Tennesee Titans on Saturday night.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Los Angeles Rams Prediction

The second game I want to get into is going to be a battle against the Los Angeles Rams and the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Here we go. This may, on paper, be the best game of the season. A lot of people saw this game as the possible NFC Championship game coming into the year. The Bucs took care of business at home and beat the hell out of the Eagles. The only negative to that game for the Bucs was Tristan Wirfs, their star tackle going down with an injury. The Rams were the home favorite, but many put their faith in Kyler Murray and the Cardinals. The Rams silenced the critics with a dominant win over the Rams, looking dominant on both sides of the football. The Rams offense had the run game and passing game working, and their defense was great from start to finish.

The play I am going to within this one is going to be to back the Rams. I absolutely hate fading Tom Brady, but I am in this spot this weekend for a couple of reasons. Let's start with the injuries. The Bucs are down their star wideout in Chris Godwin, and we all know Antonio Brown's situation. The Bucs also have some questions now with their line and some defensive pieces missing. I am going to trust Matthew Stafford here again in a legacy type of game. This may be the best roster Stafford will ever play with and needs to win this game this weekend. From a talent standpoint, the Rams are the better team, so I am going to trust them getting some extra points in this football game.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Buffalo Bills Prediction

The final game I am going to is going to be a battle between the Buffalo Bills and the Kansas City Chiefs. This is the game I believe should be the AFC Championship as I think these are the two best teams in the AFC. We know how good the Chiefs have been reaching the Superbowl the last two seasons, and they are two games away from another appearance this season. I am going to pump the breaks on that hope this year. I am backing the Buffalo BIlsl this weekend on the money line as the dog. I love everything about this Bills team as we saw them blowout a very good New England Patriots team. I think their game plan will be good enough on defense to limit this fast-paced Chiefs offense. I genuinely believe that the BIlls have the better offense and that right now, Josh Allen is playing better football than Patrick Mahomes. I love the fact that we are getting the Bills as dogs in this game, so I will ride with them here!
