The most exciting time of the gridiron year is about get started for offshore sportsbooks and online sports betting players, as NFL playoff betting action begins on Saturday afternoon. In the AFC, Indianapolis and San Diego stage a rematch of last year’s wild-card matchup which went the way of the underdog Chargers, while Atlanta and Arizona will look to keep their dream seasons alive in the NFC.
The Falcons (11-5) are 2-point NFL playoff betting favorites on the road on Saturday, and their turnaround from a 4-12 mark last year is one of the feel-good stories of the year. Rookie Matt Ryan showed the poise of a ten-year veteran in the pocket, finishing a very respectable sixth in the NFC in passer rating. The Cardinals (9-7) stumbled to the NFC West title, but a late-season slide has made sportsbooks very skeptical of their NFC playoff betting chances. Both offenses are in the top six in the league, while neither defense can finish better than 19th, so sports wagering players should consider the OVER in this contest. The Falcons have won six of their last ten overall against the Cardinals.
The Colts (12-4) are 1.5-point NFL playoff betting favorites in San Diego, where they have already beaten the AFC West champion Chargers (8-8) this season. Indianapolis edged the Chargers 23-20 in Week 12 action, and they enter the postseason as the league’s hottest team with nine consecutive victories. The Chargers won four straight to claim their division (along with a Denver collapse), and the offense has put up over 37 points a game in that streak. As usual, defense will be the difference in this contest, as the Colts are a sturdy 11th, while the Chargers are a measly 25th. Overall, these two have split their last ten meetings.
