2021 NFL Divisional Round Predictions
Only a few matches separate us and the Super Bowl LV. ON February 7, 2021, the stage is set for two teams to face off at the Raymon James Stadium, Tampa, Florida. The match was initially set in Los Angeles, but the NFL agreed to award the event to the City of LA in 2022 instead after a delay in the opening of the new stadium that will potentially host the match. Meanwhile, this gave way to Tampa hosting the 2021 Super Bowl game.
As the selection of contenders gets shorter, the hottest NFL odds start to become available. It’s time to look at the stats and other factors that can potentially lead your bets in the right direction.
With changes to the wild-card weekend that gave us a combined four this coming Saturday and Sunday, we can expect back-to-back action between AFC and NFC matches, including two strong favorites and underdogs.
Ravens vs Bills
This game promises active passing and running duels traded between 2018 first-round quarterbacks Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen. Both sides are going to show against the run highlights, which can expose and strengthen their tactics.
- The prediction for this match is a 27-24 win for the Bills and covers the spread.
Chiefs vs Browns
The Browns came out strong after playing against the Steelers, eventually taking down their AFC North Rivals. This time around, they need to take it one step at a time with ball control and setting good spots for Mayfield to execute big plays. Meanwhile, the Chiefs are going to look to counter this with the aid of a rested Patrick Mahomes, trying to create a significant lead early on through runs that will put Mayfield in a tight spot.
- Prediction is a 34-17 win for the Chiefs, covering the spread.
Buccaneers vs Saints
The Buccaneers begin to gain more traction as Brady and his wide receivers develop more chemistry. While both teams stop the run well, it comes down to a fight between quarterbacks and precision. Brees will have to put in more effort when it comes to completing shorter routes to his receivers.
- Prediction is a win for the Buccaneers, 34-31
Rams vs Packers
The Rams are exceptional with their running game, showing true determination in offense after taking down the Seahawks. Goff will be nearing 100% by the time he has to suit up against the Packers. Their defense speaks for the quality of their work, but they have to do more than that to make sure that their offense outscores Rodgers and the Packers.
At the Packers’ end, Aaron Rodgers will find Davante Adams linked with Jalen Ramsey along with the rest of their robust interior offensive line.
- This is a close watch, with a prediction of 24-20 in favor of the Packers, failing to cover the spread.
