Three NFL divisional bets I like

By William Hill  (VSiN.com)

This column will come to you as soon as the Bears kick the extra point ... well, it appears we may be here awhile. We might as well acknowledge the possibility that the Bears will not kick the extra point and not cover the 11.5-point spread I was so excited to grab. I’m not sure whether writing this column compares with the Jordan “flu game,” but I will overcome a comparable amount of adversity to bring you winners for Round 2, albeit with a heavy heart.

 

The enhanced wild-card weekend was as fun as it sounded going in, and now it’s hard to believe it ever featured only four games. Saturday saw the dogs bark, while Sunday saw the Dawg Pound win in its first playoff appearance in 19 years. The Colts and Bills gave us a thriller to open the weekend, and then we learned who Taylor Heinicke was and collectively wondered why he didn’t have a job all year. Sunday saw some of the most head-scratching punts we’ll ever see as Mike Vrabel and Mike Tomlin (maybe it’s a Mike thing?) punted in key short-yardage spots. Lamar Jackson earned his first playoff win, while Russell Wilson left us perplexed as to how he was -250 favorite to win the MVP just a few months ago.
