Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Saturday, Jan. 21 | TV: NBC | 4:30 p.m. ET

The No. 1-seeded Chiefs are 8.5-point NFL betting favorites at home against the Jaguars with a chance to go to the AFC Championship.

Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes will need to continue to play at a high level against Jacksonville’s defense. He threw for 5,250 yards, 41 touchdowns and 12 interceptions on a 67% completion rate during the regular season. Kansas City star tight end Travis Kelce caught 110 passes for 1,338 yards and 12 touchdowns.

Jaguars quarterback Trevor Lawrence is beginning to prove he was worthy of the first overall pick in 2021. He threw for 288 yards and four touchdowns despite four interceptions in a comeback victory over the Chargers last week. Travis Etienne ran for 109 yards on 20 carries in that game.

New York Giants vs. Philadelphia Eagles

Saturday, Jan. 21 | TV: FOX | 8:15 p.m. ET

After a first-round bye as the No. 1 seed in the NFC, the Eagles are -7.5 football betting favorites in their third game of the season against the NFC East rival Giants.

The Eagles will be a formidable opponent now that star quarterback Jalen Hurts is back. He threw for 3,701 yards, 22 touchdowns and six interceptions on a 67% completion rate while running for 760 yards and 13 touchdowns this season. AJ Brown (1,496 receiving yards), Miles Sanders (1,269 rushing yards) and DeVonta Smith (1,196 receiving yards) have been Philadelphia’s leading playmakers.

Giants quarterback Daniel Jones was exceptional in the wild-card round of the playoffs against the Vikings. He threw for 301 yards and two touchdowns with no picks while running for 78 yards on 17 attempts. Isaiah Hodgins caught eight passes for 105 yards and a touchdown.

Cincinnati Bengals vs. Buffalo Bills

Sunday, Jan. 22 | TV: CBS | 3 p.m. ET

Josh Allen and the Bills have -250 football odds against Joe Burrow and the Bengals in this matchup.

The Bills barely beat the Dolphins, 34-31, in their wild-card game. Allen threw for 352 yards, three touchdowns and two interceptions. Stefon Diggs (114 yards on seven receptions) and Gabe Davis (113 yards and a touchdown on six catches) were among Buffalo’s leading playmakers.

The Bengals also beat a divisional rival in a 24-17 victory over the Ravens last week. Burrow threw for 209 yards with one touchdown and no picks. Ja’Marr Chase was the team’s leading receiver with 84 yards on nine catches.
