Could we see three very good NFL games and betting on Sunday, Jan 10?
There are two grudge match games on either side of a NFC battle that could be closer than some people think. Here is a look at the Wildcard Playoff Sunday games
NFL Sunday January 10 Betting Previews
AFC 5-Baltimore Ravens at 4-Tennessee Titans
Prediction: Could we be headed for another rematch next weekend? The Titans are getting points in this game at home in the playoffs. I will take the points.
Time and TV: 1:05 p.m. EST (ESPN, ABC, and Fubo.tv)
Odds: Ravens -3.5, money line -190 (Titans +170), over/under 55
This is a really good game on paper. Derrick Henry, fresh off the eighth 2000-yard rushing season in NFL history, had 250 yards Sunday to clinch the AFC South for the Titans. These two teams met on November 22, and it took overtime to decide the contest. Henry‘s 29-yard touchdown run is one of the reasons these teams are seeded where they are.
Of course, the Ravens have 2019 NFL MVP Lamar Jackson under center, and finished with five-straight wins after a three-game losing streak. Remember, this is a rematch of last season’s Divisional Round contest, won by the Titans 28-12.
NFC 7-Chicago Bears at 2-New Orleans Saints
Prediction: If the line heads south closer to -9 or -8, there could be some heavy action on the Saints. New Orleans should win, but how good are the Saints?
Time and TV: 4:40 p.m. EST (CBS and Fubo.tv)
Odds: Saints -10, money line -475 (Bears +380), over/under 48
Does anyone think the Bears have a chance here? Well, Alvin Kamara got a break with the game scheduled for Sunday, as he can come back from COVID-19. But the Saints are missing slime key players. This line is pretty high, too, with some thinking it should be closer to a touchdown.
AFC 6-Cleveland at 4-Pittsburgh Steelers
Prediction: Everyone seems to be on the Steelers at home, but could a Browns/over parlay pay the bills?
Time and TV: 8:15 p.m. EST (NBC and Fubo.tv)
Odds: Steelers -4, money line -220 (Browns +190), over/under 46.5
Finally, the Browns have come back to the playoffs.
It has been nearly two decades, but Cleveland made it, one year later than many thought. The Browns’ reward? A matchup with fellow AFC North foe Pittsburgh Steelers.
Cleveland just about beat the Steelers Sunday, despite many Pittsburgh players sitting out, and it was 38-7 to the Steelers earlier in the campaign. But that was a time ago, during the 11-0 start for Pittsburgh that gave way to a 1-4 finish, with the lone win a desperate comeback in Week 16.
Both teams had winning records against playoff teams (Cle 4-3, Pit 5-3), and this could be the best game of the weekend.
