NFL Playoff Picks Against The Spread 2018: Predictions ATS For Divisional Games

NFL Playoff Picks Against The Spread 2018: Predictions ATS For Divisional Games

Prediction : New England Patriots win by 17+. When the rubber meets the road between good offense and good defense, especially in the National Football League playoffs when the sheer volume of recreational money can make a serious impact on the point spread, more often than not the best value is on the good defense.

There were two upsets on Wild-Card Weekend, and it wouldn't be surprising to see multiple underdogs win outright in the divisional round of the 2018 NFL Playoffs. If the defense plays with the intensity they brought into Los Angeles, the Falcons will have a great chance of leaving Philadelphia with a victory.

Two points are awarded for each correct pick our predictors make, with them subsequently earning bonus multiplier points for correct predictions made in respect of subsequent rounds. The Eagles will be without Carson Wentz, relying on Nick Foles in their first playoff game. Jacksonville didn't show me a whole lot offensively last week. The top seed in each conference, the Patriots and Eagles, had some of the best quarterbacks in the NFL.

What started as a 12 team tournament for the right to make it to Super Bowl 52 is now down to eight teams - with four teams surviving the Wild Card weekend fun and four more teams - loaded with former FSU stars - getting their first taste of playoff excitement after having last weekend off for the bye week.

For about three and a half quarters last week, it looked like the Titans were going to get run out of the building before staging an epic comeback against Kansas City.

Below are picks against the spread for every game in the second round of the playoffs, as well as updated betting odds at Las Vegas and online sportsbooks. Foles does not have the accuracy, mobility, or the wow factor that Wentz possesses. That will only aid the Steelers' game plan: Run the ball early and often, and shut down Leonard Fournette.

Only one non-running back projects as a better value than Gronkowski this week, but he has an unmatched ceiling among skill-position players, save maybe Le'Veon Bell. Because of some troubling locker room rumors circulating I believe this Patriots team will be extra motivated, as if they needed an extra edge to play with.

Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger will be out to prove that 30-9 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 5 was a fluke. Even though the Jaguars are one of only two teams to have a winning record in Pittsburgh during the Roethlisberger era (4-1), Bortles is the more likely QB to throw five picks in what amounts to the biggest game of his life. Patriots quarterback Tom Brady, with his five Super Bowl titles, has the most playoff wins in history by a starting quarterback with 25. They beat the Rams by 13, covering the spread by nearly 20 points in the process, so what's the harm in upgrading them and making this line Falcons -3?

So that makes it 1-1 in the battle of established quarterbacks vs. new kids on the block so far in the 2018 National Football League playoffs.

This is the most hard game to pick on the divisional playoff schedule.

This is a rematch of a Week One game that the Vikings won 29-19, but these are far different teams now. This team plays with a unique swagger that reminds me of a young Seattle Seahawks team, and against the Carolina Panthers they showed why their offense is so risky. This is a top-two defense in the league in almost every category. This marks the Falcons' fourth road game in five weeks, all demanding playoff-like intensity; during the same stretch, the Eagles' only road game entailed a quick trip to NY and they've been home since before Christmas.
