NFL playoffs betting odds, now is the time to get free picks. The college bowl season gets underway on Saturday and continues through January 1st. The NFL regular season comes to a close on Sunday and the playoffs begin next weekend. This is the best time of year for sports bettors because there are so many games for us to handicap and cash in on. Now is peak season for sportsbooks, as well. It’s the busiest time of year for them and they’re working their tails off to make sure we have a great betting experience.
It’s no secret that during this time of year sportsbooks are making a ton of money as they cover all of the bets coming in. They know they’ll be busy and they want us to have a great time too, which is why many books are offering incentives to play with them right now.
If you’re new to betting or find yourself struggling during these peak months, you might want to consider taking advantage of these incentives while they last.
The NFL Wild Card Playoffs are upon us. We’ve got you covered with free picks and predictions, including betting odds and totals. In the AFC, it’s the Kansas City Chiefs taking on the Houston Texans in a battle of two high-powered offenses, while the Cincinnati Bengals visit the Indianapolis Colts in a matchup of AFC North foes. The NFC sees two surprise playoff teams — the Detroit Lions and Dallas Cowboys — go head-to-head in a game that will be decided by defense, while the Arizona Cardinals host the Carolina Panthers in a game that features two quarterbacks who could use some redemption and a whole lot of offense.
Let’s take a look at some picks and predictions for each of this weekend’s four Wild Card games to get you ready for your NFL betting action over the weekend.

It’s the time of year when we start to see sportsbooks shift their focus a little bit more towards baseball, basketball, and hockey as the NFL season ends and postseasons for all three of those sports kick off, but there are still plenty of games worth betting on in the National Football League this week.
This is the final week of the regular season before the playoffs begin, so this is your last chance to make some money on the NFL in 2018 unless you want to bet on prop bets during the Super Bowl.
There are some good matchups this week, but if you’re looking for free picks against the spread and over/under totals for each game, you’ve come to the right place.
Let’s look at three games worth betting on this week that we like a lot.
NFC Playoffs: The NFC is the most difficult conference to predict. The only team that has a clear advantage is the Carolina Panthers, but it’s not easy to sweep three games in a row.
The Green Bay Packers and the Seattle Seahawks are very close, but I think the Packers will prevail. In other words, I believe the Packers will win in Minnesota.
As for the Cardinals and the Vikings, there’s no way to predict this one.
AFC Playoffs: This is probably the easiest conference to predict. The Bengals are favored by almost everybody, but there’s no way they can beat the Broncos or Patriots.
I also don’t expect a great deal from the Texans and Steelers; they should be eliminated soon.
So I think it’s safe to say that we’ll see two teams from each conference in the final four.

The NFL season is finally here, and the return of football has brought with it a new round of questions. Who will win the Super Bowl? Who will be the best team in each conference? Who will take home individual awards? And how will each division shake out?
Last weekend’s wild-card games provided some answers. The Kansas City Chiefs, Pittsburgh Steelers and Green Bay Packers are out. The Houston Texans, Seattle Seahawks and Buffalo Bills are in. But we still have plenty to figure out over the next few weeks.
The biggest game remaining on the schedule is the AFC Championship Game between the Baltimore Ravens and New England Patriots. That contest will likely decide which team plays in Super Bowl LIV at Hard Rock Stadium in Miami Gardens, Florida, on Feb. 2. And it will also go a long way toward answering questions about Lamar Jackson’s ability to beat Bill Belichick and Tom Brady in January.
AFC Championship Game: No. 1 Ravens (14-2) at No. 2 Patriots (12-4)
Thursday Night Football is the branding used for broadcasts of National Football League (NFL) games that broadcast primarily on Thursday nights. Most of the games kick off at 8:25 p.m. Eastern Time, but games in the package also air occasionally on Saturdays in the later portion of the season, as well as a single Sunday morning game from London in the NFL International Series.
Decembers 2016, it was announced that Amazon had acquired rights to stream Thursday Night Football games with the 2017 NFL Season to Prime Video members worldwide, replacing Twitter as the league’s global digital partner. Amazon paid $50 million to stream 10 Thursday night games during the regular season, up from $10 million paid by Twitter for the same package the previous year.
In August 2017, it was reported that NBC would be replacing CBS as a broadcaster of Thursday Night Football beginning in 2018, and that its package would consist of five TNF games simulcast on both NBC and NFL Network (with another seven being exclusive to NFL Network), and additionally would include Saturday afternoon games on NFL Network during Weeks 15 and 16 (prior to Christmas). This marked the first time that NBC had broadcast primetime NFL games since Super Bowl XXXII in 1998; TNF also became part of NBC’s contract to telev
