The NFL divisional playoff matchups are set after a fantastic weekend of Super Wild Card games.
The Bills, Rams and Buccaneers punched their tickets to the next round of the playoffs Saturday in three exciting games coming down to the final quarter. The Rams (+3.5) were the only team on Saturday to record a victory of more than one score via their 30-20 upset of the Seattle Seahawks. Buffalo (-7) and Tampa Bay (-9) both advanced, but did not reward backers at the betting windows, winning by less than the spread.
The biggest shock came in the final game of the weekend when the Cleveland Browns (+5.5) crushed Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers 48-37 in Pittsburgh. The Browns now get a date with the defending Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs.
The Ravens (-3.5) and Saints (-10.5) recorded victories earlier in the day over the Titans and Bears respectively. Perhaps the biggest matchup of all four games involves Tom Brady facing off against Drew Brees for the right to play in the NFC Championship game next Sunday night.
The sharp information from Vegas produced another profitable NFL betting campaign - finishing the regular season with a record of 68-47-1 against the spread. The betting plays, supplied only to Sports Illustrated, have absolutely crushed the sportsbooks in NFL, NCAA basketball and college football wagering. The information straight from Frankie Taddeo, Sports Illustrated’s Gambling Vegas Insider, is currently on an amazing 12-5 ATS (71%) run on all football plays. Be sure to be on the lookout for the NFL divisional sharp plays later this week!
