NFL Divisional Round Over/Under Picks

Saturday, Jan. 12

Indianapolis Colts at Kansas City Chiefs

  • Total Over/Under Odds: 57 ½

After their bye, the Colts defense really stepped it up. Indianapolis played in 5 under games in their final 8. However, they did play in 2 over games in Week 16 and Week 17. In the fantastic wildcard win over the rival Houston Texans, Indianapolis held the Texans to only 7 points in an under game.

That’s not likely to happen versus the Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs allow 26.3 points per. KC averages 35 points per. The under is 3-4-1 in Chiefs’ home games, though. That points to this one going under because Indy should try to control the line of scrimmage with their big offensive line.

NFL Divisional Round Pick: Under

Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Rams

  • Total Over/Under Odds: 49

Here’s another playoff game that might go under. The Cowboys battled the Seahawks to an over game in their 24-22 wildcard win. Dallas only allows 20.2 points per game, though. Not only that, but the under went 6-2 in the Cowboys’ 8 away games during the regular season.

The Rams can put up points. They didn’t against good defenses towards the end of the regular season. This should be a close game with Dallas, like Indianapolis against KC, controlling the line of scrimmage with their offensive line and running back Ezekiel Elliott.

This one looks like an under game.

NFL Divisional Round Pick: Under

Sunday, Jan. 13

L.A. Chargers at New England Patriots

  • Total Over/Under Odds: 46 ½

Although the Patriots rank 21st in total yards allowed, they only rank 7th in points allowed. Then again, New England faces one of the top offenses in the NFL on Sunday. The Chargers score 26.8 points per game.

It’s hard to see Los Angeles keeping New England from scoring at least 25 in this. If the Chargers score at least 24, which they should versus a Patriots’ defense that gives up yards, the score will end at around 49.

Two great quarterbacks, the Chargers’ Philip Rivers and the Patriots’ Tom Brady, should ensure a high-scoring game. Bolts at Pats goes over.

NFL Divisional Round Pick: Over

Philadelphia Eagles at New Orleans Saints

  • Total Over/Under Odds: 50 ½

The Eagles shut down Chicago’s offense. That might not happen against the Saints. New Orleans beat Philadelphia 48-7 during the regular season. Although the Saints won’t beat the Eagles 48-7 on Sunday, they could definitely beat them 28-7 or 35-7.

The under went 6-2 in New Orleans’ 8 home games during the regular season. This looks like an under game for sure.
