Indianapolis Colts vs Kansas City Chiefs
1/12 @ 4:35pm ET
The Colts (+5) will head out on the road to take on the Chiefs (-5) in the second round of the playoffs. The Colts looked great last week vs the Texans picking up a double digit victory. They scored 21 early points but did slow down as the game went on and their defense was able to hold Deshaun Watson in check. On the other side the Chiefs had a week of recovery and will come into this game fresh looking to break the stigma of them choking in big game situations. The under has also hit in 6 of the last 8 games for Indy this season and they have played pretty well historically in Kansas City winning 7 of their last 8 games there. The Colts defense is underrated and in this matchup where weather could play a factor our lineups.com bet predictor likes the under 57 points in this matchup on Saturday afternoon.
Dallas Cowboys vs Los Angeles Rams
1/12 @ 8:15pm ET
The Rams (-7) will host the Cowboys (+7) this Saturday night in one of the biggest spreads of the weekend. The Cowboys won a tight game at home vs the Seahawks last week and the Rams had the week off. There has been a lot of questions about the Rams after they struggled a little bit coming into the playoffs. But surely after the week off they were able to work on some things and RB Todd Gurley was able to get healthy and has been a full participant in practice. The Cowboys defense has been excellent this year and we have seen the Rams have issues with some of the top defenses in the league. All in all I think this game will be a tight one and our lineups.com bet predictor agrees giving the Cowboys a 79% chance to come within that 7 number.
Philadelphia Eagles vs New Orleans Saints
1/13 @ 4:40pm ET
The Eagles (+8) will visit the Saints (-8) this Sunday as huge underdogs for a playoff game. A lot of this obviously has to do with Nick Foles starting at QB for the Eagles vs a really stingy Saints defense that has been playing it's best football as of late. The Saints have been playing better on defense but we haven't seen their offense explode like we did earlier in the season. One thing we cannot underestimate is the Nick Foles magic we have seen over the last 2 seasons as he just finds ways for his team to win even if a little luck is involved. It'll be a really tough task for this team to come into the SuperDome and win a game but our lineups.com bet predictor thinks they can at least come within the 8 points they are being given.
