NFL Wild Card Weekend Two Best Bets for Sunday – 1/16/22

So I posted my Saturday plays earlier this week, so here’s my two favorite for Sunday.

Eagles +8.5 over the Bucs

As you can see, I love underdogs on wild card weekend. The Bucs have been everything but consistent to end the season, obviously could have a better locker room/team morale, and are playing an Eagles team that had won 6 of their last 7 games of the season before resting starters against the Cowboys Week 18.

The Eagles defense has also been underrated as of late, as they’ve crept into the top 10 in both passing and rushing yards allowed per game. I can see this game going about five different ways, and only one of them ends with the Bucs winning by double digits and covering the spread, so I’m rolling with the Birds.

49ers +3 over the Cowboys

Do I trust the Cowboys in the playoffs? No. Do I trust Dak in the playoffs? No. Do I trust Mike McCarthy in the playoffs? HELL NO. I’m admittedly less confident in this game than the others, but I just can’t count on this back and forth Cowboys team to cover. The 49ers and Kyle Shanahan are one of the few NFC teams without a bad loss, and I expect them to run the ball 30+ times, shorten the game, and come out on top. ML is sitting at around +135 for San Fran, which I also think could be a good value play.
