NFL Playoffs: What’s Happened So Far?
Below, we make our predictions for both the NFC Championship and AFC Championship. Before getting into that, check out what happened during Wildcard Weekend and the Divisional Playoffs.
NFL Wildcard Weekend
Indianapolis Colts 21 at Houston Texans 7
The Colts went off -1.5 favorites. Bookies should have been okay in this matchup because there wasn’t a moneyline and a 50% split happened between who liked the Colts and who liked the Texans.
Seattle Seahawks 22 at Dallas Cowboys 24
Seattle was hot a week before the game. Dallas ended up taking most action so that they became a -2.5 favorite. Seattle lost straight up, but the Seahawks won against the spread.
Here’s another where close to 50% went to both sides of the spread.
L.A. Chargers 23 at Baltimore Ravens 17
Those who didn’t have max betting limits on the Chargers lost some money. L.A. went off at +3.5 after late money flew to the Ravens.
If Baltimore was overplayed in your book, and you didn’t use your layoff account, awesome!
Philadelphia Eagles 16 at Chicago Bears 15
The Eagles went off +6.5 dogs.
Hopefully, all pay per head agents had max betting limits on the Eagles’ moneyline.
Hopefully, they also used their layoff account if Philadelphia was overplayed in their books.
NFL Divisional Playoffs
Indianapolis Colts 13 at Kansas City Chiefs 31
The Chiefs went off -4.5 favorites. Most bookie agents used their layoff accounts because Kansas City was likely overbet as opposed to the Colts.
Dallas Cowboys 22 at L.A. Rams 30 – The Rams were the -7 favorites. When the chalk covers, per head agents often do well because using the layoff account on favorites is the best course of action.
L.A. Chargers 28 at New England Patriots 41
The Pats were -3.5 faves at kickoff. New England decimated the Chargers.
This is where bookies could have made a lot of money. Most players took the +3.5 on LAC to cover. Some had huge moneyline wagers on the Colts.
Any bookies that didn’t use their layoff accounts if Chargers were overplayed made a lot of money.
Philadelphia Eagles 14 at New Orleans Saints 20
The Saints won with their defense. That’s why they failed to cover as a -8 favorite. Philadelphia rushed out to a 14-0 lead.
“When in doubt, lay off”
Anybody who hadn’t put max betting limits on Philly’s moneyline was probably sweating. However, New Orleans bounced back.
This game’s a great example of the new, but so wise, adage: “When in doubt, lay off.”

Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints -3.5
It took New Orleans an entire quarter to play off the rust they developed after a week break. The Saints should be much tighter versus the Rams.
The key in the matchup is how Rams’ quarterback Jared Goff will fair against the Saints’ defense.
The guess here is that it won’t fair well. New Orleans should win and cover. If you’re worried, by all means, use the layoff account.
However, the Saints are awfully difficult to stick within the Superdome.
New England Patriots at Kansas City Chiefs -3
The Chiefs’ defense played great against the Colts in KC’s Divisional Playoff win.
The Patriots are on a roll, though.
New England decimated the Chargers behind an excellent rushing attack. KC is one of the worst teams in the NFL defending the rush.
New England should win straight up. Make sure max betting limits are in place on New England’s moneyline. Also, set max betting limits on KC’s moneyline and most definitely use your layoff account.
The Chiefs are the home team. That alone means they could beat New England and cover.
