2024 NFL Divisional Round Betting Preview

By Hank Blaine

Oddsmakers have set lines for all NFL Divisional Round games except Green Bay at San Francisco. The reason for the line hesitation in 49ers versus Packers is because San Francisco lists many key players as questionable. But even though there is no line, there is enough to go on to handicap the matchup. Check out NFL odds, analysis, and free picks for every game in the 2024 NFL Divisional Round.

A Closer Look at the 2024 NFL Divisional Round

Houston Texans vs. Baltimore Ravens

The Ravens are -9 favorites due to their reputation. Baltimore begins their quest for the Super Bowl after a dominant regular season where they blasted the San Francisco 49ers on the road 33-19, destroyed the Miami Dolphins 56-19, and beat the Detroit Lions 38-6.

If there is a team that should roll through the playoffs, it’s the Ravens. But Baltimore’s starters have been off for two weeks. Will the lack of play hurt the Ravens?

It could against a scorching Houston Texans team. The Texans handed Cleveland a 45-14 wild card playoff loss this past Saturday. C.J. Stroud torched one of the top defenses in the NFL.

Houston has a lot of momentum and Stroud doesn’t make a lot of mistakes. But the Texans face a juggernaut on January 20. The Ravens pull away with at least a 14 point victory.

Green Bay Packers vs. San Francisco 49ers

The line is off because San Francisco’s injury report shows key names possibly stepping onto the field less than one hundred percent. On defense, defensive tackle Arik Armstead, will backer Dre Greenlaw, strong safety Ji’Aiyir Brown and free safety Tashaun Gipson all list as questionable.

On offense, tight end George Kittle and running back Christian McCaffrey list as questionable. All should play, but will they be effective enough to counter the excellent Green Bay offense?

Aaron Jones, Jordan Love, and Romeo Dubbs dropped 42 onto the Cowboys. The Packers defense accounted for a pick six against Dak Prescott, and Matt LaFleur made all the right moves. Green Bay will for sure cover and is a live dog to win on the moneyline.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Detroit Lions

The Detroit Lions held on against Matthew Stafford and the Rams for a 27-26 playoff victory. Detroit earned it, playing tough defense down the stretch and rushing out to a big 21-10 lead.

Things for the Lions don’t get easier on Sunday. Baker Mayfield put the nail into the Philadelphia Eagles’ coffin with a stunning 3-touchdown performance in a 32-9 Tampa win.

The Buccaneers are dialed in to what they must do to win in the NFL postseason. Granted, the Eagles were horrible down the regular season stretch. Still, the Lions will find it difficult to pick up their game after such an emotional win only 7 days prior. Take the points on Baker and the Bucs.

Kansas City Chiefs vs. Buffalo Bills

Patrick Mahomes and the Kansas City Chiefs get another crack at the Buffalo Bills. During the regular season, the refs called an offside on Kadarius Toney because the KC receiver had lined up in the neutral zone. The offside call wiped out a lateral from Trvis Kelce to Toney that led to a late game touchdown.

Buffalo looked fantastic when beating the Steelers. Ah, but Josh Allen accounted for 4 touchdowns, 3 passes and a 52-yard TD rush. Pittsburgh had a chance down just 7 points in the fourth quarter before the Bills pulled away.

Kansas City played the more complete game in their 26-7 victory over Tua and the Miami Dolphins. The KC defense continues to play lights out and Mahomes and the offense appear back on the right track. Magic Mahomes, Kelce, and the Swifties exact their revenge.
