NFL Tremendous Wild Card Weekend odds: Buccaneers cowl in opposition to Cowboys, greatest bets | Technoscoob

Tremendous Wild Card weekend is upon us. 

We have got 12 groups enjoying six video games over three days. And I’ve received some greatest bets that can hopefully win us all some money this primary weekend of NFL playoffs.

Let’s dive into my greatest bets (odds by way of FOX Guess).

Payments dethroned, Chiefs rise & 49ers deemed ‘juggernauts’ in Nick’s NFL Tiers

Bills dethroned, Chiefs rise & 49ers deemed 'juggernauts' in Nick's NFL Tiers

Nick crowns the Kansas Metropolis Chiefs the favorites, San Francisco 49ers juggernauts and slide the Buffalo Payments down after their Week 18 win over the New England Patriots.

Dolphins at Payments (1 p.m. ET Sunday, CBS)

On Monday evening within the Faculty Soccer Playoff Nationwide Championship, Georgia was favored by 13 in opposition to TCU — roughly the identical quantity as Buffalo is favored in opposition to Miami. Whereas many knew deep down that Georgia was going to smoke TCU, plenty of individuals pretended TCU had an opportunity. Georgia received 65-7 in a recreation that wasn’t whilst shut because the rating. In Wild Card weekend, we all know deep down Buffalo is about to do the identical to Miami. The margin of victory received’t be 58, however Buffalo goes to place a hurting on the Dolphins.

The Dolphins are with out their beginning quarterback and their competent backup quarterback. They’re left beginning Skylar Thompson, their third-string QB. Thompson made two begins this season and received lots of motion in two different video games due to accidents. He is finishing 57% of passes, with one landing to a few interceptions., whereas averaging solely an adjusted 4 yards per try. 

SImply put, Miami simply is not going to attain.

Miami’s solely hope to cowl this recreation is forcing Josh Allen into turnovers, which is feasible. He has thrown for 14 interceptions this season. Nonetheless, is that even sufficient? An unpleasant Payments offensive efficiency that nets 21 factors can cowl for them if the Dolphins can’t rating. 

I simply don’t see how the Dolphins hold it shut. I’m going to belief my core right here. Give me Buffalo.

PICK: Payments (-13.5 at FOX Guess) to win by greater than 13.5 factors

The Dallas Cowboys will tackle Tom Brady and the Tampa Bay Bucs throughout Tremendous Wild Card Weekend.

Cowboys at Buccaneers (8:15 p.m. ET Monday, ESPN)

I’ll take the factors with the Bucs, however I’d truly be OK simply taking them straight up for the win. 

For the reason that Cowboys’ Week 9 bye, they’ve received six of 9 video games. Listed here are the quarterbacks Dallas confronted in these six video games: Kirk Cousins, Daniel Jones, Matt Ryan, whoever the Texans determined to play at quarterback that weekend, Gardner Minshew and Josh Dobbs. In that very same time interval, the Cowboys misplaced three highway video games to Aaron Rodgers, Trevor Lawrence and a mix of Commanders quarterbacks final Sunday. Now, the Cowboys journey to face Tom Brady in Tampa Bay on the Bucs’ grass discipline.

I’ve routinely mentioned my dislike for the Bucs teaching workers this season. I’m positive they’re effective individuals, however their play calling and recreation administration stink. Nonetheless, they’ve Tom Brady who makes issues proper for them. 

Tampa Bay’s offensive line is getting more healthy, which is necessary when dealing with the Dallas go rush. Nonetheless, the Cowboys go rush is worse on grass which frequently occurs when a turf crew heads outdoors. Their protection was ranked second in DVOA by the primary eight video games, and because the bye, they’re ninth. As soon as once more, take a look at the quarterbacks they’ve confronted.

Dallas’ offense may be superb. We’ve seen it all through the season. However for as many factors because the Cowboys rating, their effectivity doesn’t fairly match. They’re fourth in factors however fifteenth in effectivity. Dak Prescott has thrown some horrible interceptions, and the offense appears disjointed at instances. They’re dealing with a Bucs protection that has carried the crew all 12 months and I count on them to trigger disruption to the Dallas offense. 

Lastly, I belief Tom Brady to make performs over the Cowboys gamers and coaches within the significant moments of the sport on Monday. I’ll wager on Tom Brady.

PICK: Buccaneers (+2.5 at FOX Guess) to lose by fewer than 2.5 factors (or win outright)

Lamar Jackson faces ‘uphill battle’ to play vs. Bengals, per experiences

Lamar Jackson faces 'uphill battle' to play vs. Bengals, per reports

Jackson has been out since Dec 4. Nick Wright, Chris Broussard, Kevin Wildes and Greg Jennings focus on.

Ravens at Bengals (8:15 p.m. ET Sunday, NBC)

The Bengals enter the playoffs on an eight-game win streak, enjoying a few of the greatest ball within the AFC. They’re internet hosting the Ravens seven days after beating them in Week 18. And it seems the Ravens can be with out Lamar Jackson and Tyler Huntley, which makes them the second playoff crew to start out a 3rd string quarterback. 

The Ravens have been with out Jackson since they performed the Broncos in Week 13. Since that 10-point offensive output, Baltimore has but to attain over 17 factors. So I believe wagering on the sport Below, Ravens crew complete Below and even the Bengals to cowl can be effective. However I’m going to get a tad unique for this one.

Through the Bengals eight-game win streak, plus the now-canceled recreation in opposition to the Payments, the Bengals have scored first in seven of these 9. And after they rating first, it is often on the opening drive. They’ve been deadly on opening drives. I’m going to wager on that pattern to proceed in opposition to the Ravens.

The Ravens can be that includes extra starters on protection this weekend, however I nonetheless count on the identical from Joe Burrow. A straight wager on the Bengals to attain first is -175. That’s a tad heavy on the juice, so I’m going with Bengals to attain first and win the sport which is priced at -110.

PICK: Bengals to attain first and win (-110 at FOX Guess)
