Brock & Shane’s NFL Best Bets – Divisional Round
Jacksonville Jaguars at Kansas City Chiefs
Best Bet: Jerick McKinnon Anytime TD -125
Make that 6 straight games that McKinnon has scored a receiving touchdown for the Kansas City Chiefs. I doubt the Jaguars will be able to cover him effectively, as they will have their hands full with Travis Kelce as well.
New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles
Best Bet: Eagles Team Total Over 27.5 -125
The Giants will have their hands full with this rested Eagles offense. New York took away Minnesota’s ground game last week, but still gave up 271 yards through the air. The Eagles potent rushing attack should open things up for the aerial attack that features two Top 10 receivers in AJ Brown & Devonta Smith.
Cincinnati Bengals at Buffalo Bills
Best Bet: Bills Team Total Over 27.5 -102
The Bills have scored 4 touchdowns against a lot of teams this season and I highly doubt they will have trouble at home against this average defense. The Bengals offensive line issues should create some extra opportunities for the Bills in what should be a shootout.
Dallas Cowboys at San Francisco 49ers
Best Bet: Cowboys +4 -110
I got this at +4 as soon as the final whistle blew in the Cowboys Wild Card game against the Buccaneers, so it may still not be available, but I like this all the way down to +3. I thought this was an easy read. Brock Purdy has played phenomenally in place of the injured Jimmy Garoppolo, but I think he will find himself in a dogfight this week, in the highest stakes game of his young NFL career. If the Niners win, I think it comes down to a field goal or less. I’m having trouble seeing San Francisco being able to pull away in this one with the inexperienced 7th Rounder at the helm. Also, you could sprinkle something on Cowboys ML if you’re feeling frisky.
