NFL playoff predictions 2021
Best Bet #1
The Washington Football team is overlooked. It is understandable that Tom Brady and the Buccaneers are getting all of the attention, but don’t sleep on Washington. They have one of the best defensive fronts in football and a quality Head Coach in Ron Rivera.
Washington excels at applying pressure, but Brady is very good at getting rid of the ball quickly, but this defense front is good at multiple things.
They bat down balls and they get pressure when only rushing four players. Montez Sweat and Chase Young wreak havoc on the front line and this will be a game-changer. The Buccaneers have 11 touchdown passes of 20 or more yards in the last five outings, a number that will shrink in this game.
Alex Smith is not playing, but this bet is made on the defense.
WFT QB Alex Smith is inactive tonight.

Washington is 4-1 against the spread (ATS) in the last five games as an underdog and 5-2 ATS in the last 7 games overall. Many people believe Washington will cover and for good reason. They may not beat Brady and the Bucs, but they will keep it close.
Best Bet #2
The Ravens and the Titans game may be the best one to watch in the first weekend. It has everything in a game that a fan could ask for. This game has superstars in Derrick Henry and Lamar Jackson, good coaching, and hard-hitting defenses with plenty of storylines. Many believe the Titans will win this game but guess again.
John Harbaugh knows how to win (and cover the spread) in the playoffs. The Ravens have covered 7 of the last 9 playoff games and are 8-3 ATS in the last 11 games played in January. He will exploit a Titans defense that has given up 70 points in the last two weeks. They rank No. 19 in defense against the run, allowing 120.8 yards per game, and No. 29 in passing defense, allowing 277.4 yards.
The Ravens get revenge after a playoff loss a year ago and take down the Titans.
Best Bet #3
The Browns COVID outbreak continues this week and that is concerning. The Browns finally return to the playoffs and they want to have a full complement of players.
The #Browns–#Steelers playoff game remains on as scheduled Sunday night, source said, but the five in Cleveland who tested positive for COVID-19 today — including head coach Kevin Stefanski — are out. Contact tracing and genomic sequencing ongoing.

Without a coach and prepping virtually will make things difficult for Cleveland. The Steelers have a big-play offense that is pass-happy and that means they are going to put up some points. They are especially good at scoring in the playoffs where there OVER has cashed in 18 of the last 25 playoff games. If Mason Rudolph can throw for over 300 yards against the Browns, imagine what Ben Roethlisberger will do this weekend.
The Brown’s focus is the running game, but they will have to adjust if they are down early. The Browns OVER are 4-1 in the last five divisional games because the games are always tense. This leads to penalties and turnovers, two things that are very good for the over. The best bet in this game is to bet on the total.
