A clean sweep last weekend puts us back in the green and we’re turning our attention towards Wild Card Weekend!

January 14: NFL- LA Chargers vs Jacksonville Jaguars

The first night of Wildcard Weekend concludes with what could be the most exciting game of the weekend: The Chargers heading to Florida to take on the Jaguars.

The Jaguars are finally back in the playoffs after beating the Titans in Week 18 and we’re hopping on the Trevor Lawrence train.

Lawrence has turned his play up to 11 over the final ¼ of the season and the offense has looked leagues better compared to Week 1.

However, the Jaguars will have their work cut out for them. Chargers QB Justin Herbert, WR Keenan Allen and RB Austin Ekeler are all elite playmakers who are determined to get LA past the first round. Shutting down their offense is going to be tough.

This LA team isn’t unstoppable, though. They’ve looked straight-up bad at times throughout the season and lost to the Denver Broncos in Week 18 despite playing their starters. WR Mike Williams and OLB Joey Bosa were injured in that loss, dealing a potential major blow to the offense if Williams is unable to play.

They’re a good team, but they always seem to get in their own way to fall short of becoming great.

That’s why we’ll be taking the Jaguars ML (+125) tonight. They’re playing good football, the offense is humming, and they’ll be in front of a crowd that hasn’t sniffed the post-season in years. The Chargers have a decent shot at winning, but do we really expect them to play to their full potential? Ehhhhhh.

Rebel’s Pick: Jaguars ML (+125) @ 1U

January 15: NFL- Miami Dolphins vs Buffalo Bills

The Bills open their postseason quest against an injured Miami Dolphins squad in what could end up being a blowout.

The Dolphins will be without their starting QB and the defense doesn’t look like it will match up well against the high-powered Bills offense.

While the 13-point spread doesn’t seem too bad, we will be taking Josh Allen’s alternate passing yards prop of 300+ yards (+210).

Allen will have his favorite target, Stefon Diggs, on the field and could be getting back WR Isaiah McKenzie. With a healthy offensive line and all his weapons, Allen has all the ingredients needed to cook.

The yardage is a lot, but Miami is missing CB Byron Jones and multiple LB’s are questionable. We’ll take a shot on Allen making big plays for big yards at plus-money.

Rebel’s Pick: Josh Allen Alternate Passing Yards 300+ (+210) @ 1U
