Mims previews the Divisional Round of Saturday's NFL Playoffs with game picks, prop picks and over/unders
The NFL Playoffs continue this weekend. The Green Bay Packers start things off against the Los Angeles Rams. Packers are favored by 6.5 and the total is 46.5. The money line is Green Bay -315 and the Rams +270.
Aaron Rodgers has had an MVP caliber season. He leads the league’s 5th ranked offense. Rodgers threw for 48 TDs with only 5 interceptions. He is taking on a Rams defense that is ranked No. 1 in the league. Aaron Donald is the force up front with 13.5 sacks and 4 forced fumbles. He suffered a rib injury in the win against the Seahawks but is expected to play.
Prop Bets to watch: Aaron Jones rushing yards are set at 68.5. Over price is -125, Under is +115. Rams defense should contain him, and he gets 50. Go under! Devante Adams will be shadowed most of the day by Jaylen Ramsey. His completions are set at 6.5. The price is -135 for over. Taking him under you get a +105. I will grab the under. Finally, Rodgers over 1.5 passing TDs is set at -225. Over easy!
Rams have listed Cooper Kupp as a game time decision. He is the go-to guy for Jared Goff. Goff is already limited with a hand injury. Goff is not spectacular in big games. Rodgers usually is. Packers cover and game goes under.
Ravens and Bills square off in the 2nd game. Bills are favored by 2.5 and the total is 49.5. The money line is -143 for the Bills and +125 for Ravens.
Josh Allen is playing lights out! He has thrown for 40 TDs with 11 interceptions. The Bills are the 2nd ranked offense in the league. Lamar Jackson is playing exceptional as of late. Ravens have won 6 games in a row including the victory over the Titans last week.
Prop Bets to watch: Cole Beasley is projected at 46.5 yards receiving. He came back from a knee injury and feels he will be better than last week. Beasley had 7 receptions for 57 yards. He will gut it out and go over. The price is -118. Lamar Jackson rushing yards are set at 74.5. The price for the over is -134. He goes over!
Ravens have been in the playoffs for the past 5 weeks. They had to win out just to get in. Baltimore did have a favorable schedule. Their defense has held each team except for the Browns under 20 points. Bills have dominated competition and have scored over 25 points in every game over that same period. I see the pressure getting to Josh Allen. The Bills do not have much of a running game. Colts moved the ball against the Bills defense. Ravens will too. There is a possibility of snow showers but that will not affect the rushing game of Baltimore. Ravens win and game goes over.
