*Note: A couple picks that ended in a push had previously counted against our total units. We’ve corrected that issue and the total is now accurate.
Last week we said the LA Chargers would most likely screw up their game against the Jaguars. Sure enough, they blew it in spectacular fashion. We’ve won four straight now and have two more NFL picks coming your way.
January 21: NFL- Jacksonville Jaguars vs Kansas City Chiefs
Last week, the Jags had one of the most impressive comebacks you’ll ever see in a playoff game, and we thank them for that. But it’s time to fade them.
The Kansas City Chiefs are coming off their bye week and are the team to beat in the AFC. They’re offense is top notch and the defense, while not otherworldly, is good enough.
The team had struggled at times against division opponents this season and looked suspect against the Denver Broncos a few weeks ago, but we’re not betting against Mahomes in a playoff game at Arrowhead.
The spread currently stands at 8.5 points and that’s right around our comfort area. If the Chiefs can play up to their potential, we could be looking at an easy cover by the third quarter.
Rebel’s Pick: Kansas City Chiefs -8.5 (-115) @ 1U
January 22: NFL- Cincinnati Bengals vs Buffalo Bills
Hands down, this is the game of the weekend. The last time these two teams played, the game was canceled due to Damar Hamlin’s terrible injury. This rematch is guaranteed to have plenty of emotion and we’re here for it.
This is a game that could truly go either way, although we give the edge to the Bills.
Despite that thought, we’re betting on Ja’Marr Chase anytime TD scorer (+125). Chase is Joe Burrows’ top receiver and is a big-play threat every play. At plus-money, we’ll take the bet that he finds paydirt at some point on Sunday.
Rebel’s Pick: Ja’Marr Chase Anytime TD Scorer (+125) @ 1U
