NFL Divisional Round betting preview: Will Rodgers and Brady come through again?

January 21, 2022April 13th, 2022

The 2022 NFL playoffs wild-card round wasn’t as wild as some may have expected. The 49ers got a difficult win against the Cowboys, but aside from that, most of the favourites were able to win easily. What does the Divisional Round have in store?

Eight teams are left to win the Super Bowl so let’s get into the NFL betting for the weekend’s matchups.

Tennessee Titans @ Cincinnati Bengals

For the first time in 31 years the Cincinnati Bengals are in the divisional round and they’ll be playing the Tennessee Titans. We’re likely to see Derrick Henry on the field for the first time since October in a boost to the Titans’ offense. Their defense will have its work cut out against the dynamic Bengals’ wide receivers, although Joe Burrows has shown fallibility when rushed and he’s completed under 24.5 passes in his last nine away matches.

His opposite number Ryan Tannehill meanwhile has completed under 15.5 rushing yards in nine of his last 11 home AFC matches, and he’s -121 to fail to pass that total again here.

San Francisco 49ers @ Green Bay Packers

Aaron Rodgers gets a chance to beat the one team he hasn’t been able to beat in the playoffs. The Green Bay Packers quarterback is 0-3 in the postseason against the 49ers. He certainly has the opportunity and quality to get at least one back this weekend. He’s passed over 265.5 yards in his last five home matches in NFC and could dominate the 49ers, who actually had a better record on the road than at home in the regular season.

The Packers would advance to the NFC Championship Game for the third straight season if they win on Saturday night and no team since the 49ers in 2011-13 has been to three-straight NFC title games. Can Rodgers deliver?

Los Angeles Rams @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Rams are all in this year trying to get to the Super Bowl. To get there they have to get through last years champions, the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. The Rams beat the Buccaneers 34-24 in Week 3, but that game was played in Los Angeles. This one will be played in Tampa, where the Bucs are 8-1 this year.

Both teams have scored over 2.5 Touchdowns in their last four matches, so we should be set for an exciting battle with some serious action.

Buffalo Bills @ Kansas City Chiefs

This is a last season’s AFC title game, and Patrick Mahomes versus Josh Allen. In the previous round, both the Chiefs and Bills torched their opponent with their quarterbacks in red hot form. Both Mahomes and Allen threw five touchdowns, but watch the former with ball in hand as he has completed over 24.5 rushing yards in his last three matches. He’s -113 to do so again as the free-scoring Chiefs hope to have too much in what is sure to be an absolute shoot-out of a match.
