NFL Playoffs Betting Tips for the 2023 NFC Divisional Round Matches

Four teams are left standing in the NFC Divisional Playoffs, three of whom hail from the NFC East. In addition to top-seed Philly, Dallas and the New York Giants are still alive, with San Francisco the fourth combatant. The Giants visit the hostile environment of Philadelphia Saturday night while the Cowboys head to the city by the bay, for a Sunday clash.

While all four participants have won multiple Lombardi trophies, with the exception of number 1, Philadelphia who’s long crown came in 2018. In this piece, we will take a look at some ways to be profitable when it comes to this weekend’s divisional round. Keep in mind that after this weekend, just three games remain, the two conference title games and Super Bowl, so enjoy the pigskin action while you can. Let’s have a look at the two NFC divisional matches, and then we’ll give you some NFL Playoffs Betting advice for each of the games.

And Then There Were Four | Betting Advice for the NFC Divisional Round

Saturday Night’s Action

There is little doubt that fans of Philadelphia professional sports teams are some of the most fervent in the land. With temperatures expected to only reach the low 30’s come kickoff Saturday, neither team will have an edge as they both operate in cold weather.

The main storyline in these proceedings is the health and availability of Eagles QB Jalen Hurts. As of press time, Eagle coach Nick Sirianni expects his signal caller to be a full go at practice this week and see how that develops.

Philadelphia leads the season series 2-0 but is facing a Giants team that has been playing its best football as of late. Following its Week 14 blowout at the hands of these Eagles, the Giants have gone 3-2, including last weekend’s 31-24 road playoff win at Minnesota. In the contest, the Giants outgained their hosts by 99 yards, holding Minnesota to just 61 yards on the ground.

While the names are different, there’s no Eli Manning, and coach Brian Daboll is in his first year; there’s something about the Giants and road playoff games. We just feel as though the 7.5 points is too much. We will be rolling with Big Blue.

Out West

Until its victory in Tampa Bay, Dallas had gone 30 years without tasting postseason victory on the road…let that sink in 30 years. In fact, America’s Team has not qualified for a conference title game since 1995 and are just 5-11 in the playoffs since the magical mid 90’s dominance.

Eye test-wise, both the Niners and Cowboys were impressive in their opening-round victories. We feel as though Dallas may have exorcized some past playoff demons and could be a live-road underdog. In addition, the playoffs can bring out the best…and sometimes the worst in quarterbacks. San Francisco’s Brock Purdy could be a star in the making or he can be a player in over his head against a Dallas defense that is very good against the pass.

Granted the 49ers have a ton of quality skill players to surround Purdy, but there inevitably will come a time in the game that Purdy will need to sink or swim. We are counting on him sinking and America’s team advancing, possibly to a home playoff date next week against Big Blue. Give us Dallas and the four points.
