We lost four NFL teams last weekend during the Wild Card madness and now we’re poised to lose four more once the Divisional games have been completed. The only thing to figure out now is which four are getting the boot and then lay some money down on the other guys. All of the best American online casinos are willing to take your wagers, but which ones are offering the most value for your betting dollar this weekend? Let’s find out.
The Divisional Playoffs kick off with an interesting match up between the Colts and Chiefs, with most books giving Indianapolis either 5 or 5.5 points as they head into Arrowhead. Therefore, you’ll have lots of options no matter which side you want to bet on. However, there’s a little extra value with the Underdog money line at the GTbets Sportsbook for U.S. players who are offering +200 rather than the +180 or +185 you’ll find at other websites. If you’re betting on the Over you’ll also want to place it there because they have a current line of 57 rather than the 57.5 their competitors have…and with the amazing Patrick Mahomes leading the offense for Kansas City, the Over is a very sensible wager.
Moving on to the night game, we have “America’s Team” heading into the City of Angels to try to upset Los Angeles and reach the NFC Championship for the first time in decades. The Cowboys are getting 7 points pretty much everywhere, however, if you want to bet on the Rams to cover do it at the MyBookie Sportsbook because you’ll get an extra half point with their line of -6.5 for L.A. The aforementioned GTbets again have the best money line payout for Dallas at +275, and the bookies agree that the Over/Under should be 49.5 so don’t waste your time shopping around for a better number.
Sunday brings us what could be the most exciting game of the weekend with the “San Diego Chargers of Los Angeles” heading into Foxboro to take on Tom Brady and the Patriots. Every legit betting site has the line at +4 for the Chargers, however, GTbets comes through for Underdog gamblers again with a higher-than-average money line of +170 for the Bolts. Those looking to bet on the Under should do so at the Bovada online casino because you’ll get an extra half point with their line of 48 instead of 47.5.
The weekend wraps up with the defending Super Bowl Champions rolling into the Superdome to take on Drew Brees and the powerful New Orleans Saints. Most books have the Eagles at +8 but if you want to bet on the Saints to cover you should do it at MyBookie and grab the extra half point with New Orleans -7½. Anyone looking to wager on the Eagles to win outright should head straight to BetOnline and bet their line of +315, which is by far the best odds you’ll find. Experts agree that Philadelphia and N.O. will combine for a total of 51 points but BOL again make themselves attractive with a number of 51½.
Here are the current 1st half lines for all of the games this Divisional Weekend courtesy of MyBookie. Good luck!
