NFL Playoffs Lines & Betting Predictions: 2023 Divisional Round Games

Now that we’re almost through the Wild Card Round of the 2023 NFL Playoffs, it’s time to take a look ahead. The oddsmakers have spoken, and we now have the spreads for a majority of next week’s games. With Dallas and Tampa facing off on Monday night, we won’t have all of the NFC matchups, but the AFC’s slate of games has been decided.

We’ll now give you our best betting advice on next weekend’s Divisional Round matchups so you don’t miss your chance to bet on their NFL Playoffs Odds

Who Should We Bet On In the Divisional Round? | NFL Playoffs Odds

New York Giants @ Philadelphia Eagles (-8.5)

Daniel Jones was amazing in his first career playoff game. Jones threw for 301 yards with two touchdown passes, and rushed for 78 more yards in New York’s 31-24 upset victory over the Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings were the #3 seed, while the Giants were the six seed. The biggest accomplishment in this game for the Giants was the feat of holding the top receiver in the NFL, Justin Jefferson, to just 47 yards on seven catches.

The surprising Giants will now have to face their divisional rival, the Philadelphia Eagles. We’ll see if the Giants defense will show up as big in this one. We like the Eagles to win the game, but we don’t think they cover the 8.5 points. The Giants will try to grind the clock out with Saquon Barkley, and will make things difficult for the Eagles.

Cincinnati Bengals @ Buffalo Bills (-3.5)

These two were in the process of playing during Week 17 when Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest. The game was postponed and never resumed. These two teams will now meet up again in Buffalo in the divisional round. Josh Allen and Joe Burrow are two of the top five quarterbacks in the game, and this should be a great matchup with a lot of points scored.

The Bengals are the NFL’s hottest team, as they’ve won 10 straight games. The Bengals ended the regular season 12-4 against the spread, so they have a pretty good chance of covering. This is going to be a close one, so we are going to take the Bengals.

Jacksonville Jaguars @ Kansas City Chiefs (-8.5)

Don’t look now, but the Jacksonville Jaguars have won six straight games, and are now heading to Kansas City to take on the Chiefs. The Jaguars overcame a huge deficit to defeat the Los Angeles Chargers. Trevor Lawrence overcame four first-half interceptions and had a great second half to lead the Jaguars to the miraculous victory. 

Unfortunately for Jacksonville, they have one of the worst pass defenses in the league, and the Kansas City Chiefs have one of the best passing offenses in the NFL. Mahomes threw for over 5,200 yards, along with 41 touchdowns on the season. 

Kansas City was 6-11 against the spread in the regular season. Jacksonville has gone 7-3. The Jaguars are the feel-good story of the playoffs, but we have a feeling that it will all end this weekend in Kansas City. The Chiefs passing offense is going to give Jacksonville fits. Trevor Lawrence will keep them in the game, but he won’t be able to do enough. Kansas City wins by 10 to cover the spread and move on to the AFC Championship game.
