And then were eight.
The NFL’s postseason kicked off with mostly favorites advancing (sorry, Cowboys fans) in the wild-card round.
The Tennessee Titans, the AFC’s top seed, kick off action Saturday as 3.5-point favorites over the No. 4-seeded Cincinnati Bengals, according to BetMGM. In the other conference matchup, No. 2 Kansas City is a 1.5-point favorite over the No. 3 Bills. The game is expected to be filled with fireworks with an over-under of 54.5 points.
In the NFC, top-seed Green Bay has the biggest edge of the weekend as a 5.5-point favorite over the visiting No. 6 San Francisco 49ers. Defending champion Tampa Bay, the No. 2 seed, is a 3-point favorite over Von Miller and the No. 3 Los Angeles Rams.
Think the underdogs will all cover? A parlay of the four games gives +1,230 odds — meaning a $100 bet would win $1,230. Think all four underdogs will win? That’s a jump to +3,437.
