Home field advantage may not be as significant with the current COVID-19 restrictions. When teams were allowed to have full capacity, it did not always equate to winning in the early rounds. Since 2017, home teams are just 1-11 ATS during the opening round of the playoffs. This includes a 4-8 straight-up record in those games.

Wild-Card Round

Saturday, January 9

1:05 p.m. — (7) Indianapolis Colts at (2) Buffalo Bills (CBS) [BET NOW]

Spread: Bills -7

Over/Under: 52

The Buffalo Bills are one of the hottest teams entering the playoffs. The Colts needed help to get into the postseason and barely survived against the Jaguars. That is why the Bills are one of the most popular first-round bets. Over 72 percent of the bets are on Buffalo to win and cover against the Colts.

4:40 p.m. — (6) Los Angeles Rams at (3) Seattle Seahawks (Fox) [BET NOW]

Spread: Seahawks -4.5

Over/Under: 42.5

The LA Rams were able to win their way into the playoffs without the services of starting QB Jared Goff. That will be more of a concern this weekend when they head to Seattle to battle the Seahawks. Although the QB situation is unknown, the public slightly favors the Rams in this matchup.

8:15 p.m. — (5) Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Washington Football Team (NBC) [BET NOW]

Spread: Buccaneers -9

Over/Under: 46

Tom Brady returns to the playoffs with a new team and in a different conference. Brady’s first opponent is the Washington Football Team. Despite needed a win in the last game of the regular season; this team still has a ferocious defense. The leader of that defense is looking forward to meeting Brady.

Sunday, January 10

1:05 p.m. — (5) Baltimore Ravens at (4) Tennessee Titans (ABC, ESPN) [BET NOW]

Spread: Ravens -3.5

Over/Under: 54.5

The Ravens are on the road and they are the higher seed, but they are the favorites going into this game. QB Lamar Jackson is leading this team in a positive direction and many believe that they can go to the Super Bowl. It won’t be easy as they will have to slow down RB Derrick Henry if they want to win this game.

4:40 p.m. — (7) Chicago Bears at (2) New Orlean Saints (CBS/Nickelodeon/Amazon Prime) [BET NOW]

Spread: Saints -9.5

Over/Under: 48

The Bears lost on Sunday, but they still managed to get into the playoffs. Unfortunately, they were given the 7 seed and a date with the Saints in the Big Easy. The Bear’s offense has been inconsistent all season long. Now they face one of the toughest defenses in football. This spread has moved since it’s opening. The Saints opened at -9.5 and are now -10.5 at sportsbooks.

8:15 p.m. — (6) Cleveland Browns at (3) Pittsburgh Steelers (NBC) [BET NOW]

Spread: Steelers -4

Over/Under: 46.5

The Browns beat the Steelers without most of their star players to get into the playoffs. That win allowed the Browns to make the postseason for the first time since 2002. In this matchup, they will face a full complement of Steelers. The Browns have not won a game at Heinz Field since 2003. They are 0-17 straight-up and 5-11-1 ATS in that time span. Over 65 percent of the early wagering is on Pittsburgh.
