Bengals at Titans

WILD-CARD RESULTS – The Bengals held off the Raiders, 26-19, in Cincinnati. The Titans received a bye week as the AFC’s No. 1 seed.

TUESDAY – Sportsbooks opened this spread just under a key number of three and early action took advantage of the Titans laying 2.5 points. All four of the above-listed books went through a key number and settled at 3.5 points, offering buyback opportunities on the Bengals.

WEDNESDAY – All books remained at 3.5 points.

THURSDAY – The spread continued to hold at 3.5 points ever since reaching that number.

FRIDAY – No Bengals buyback came for 3.5 points across the board. There has been no more Titans support over a key number of three either.

49ers at Packers

WILD-CARD RESULTS – The 49ers never trailed in Dallas and beat the Cowboys 23-17. The Packers received a bye week as the NFC’s No. 1 seed.

TUESDAY – The highest opening spread on the board, early bettors backed the Packers at -4.5 to push the spread to six points at all books except BetMGM (5.5).

WEDNESDAY – Packers backers hit 5.5 at BetMGM to move that book in line with the rest of the market at six points.

THURSDAY – All books moved down to 5.5 points as 49ers support hit across the board.

FRIDAY – Since this spread climbed from the opener of 4.5 to six points, it settled back at 5.5 points for two straight days.

Rams at Buccaneers

WILD-CARD RESULTS – Both teams won convincingly. The Rams led the Cardinals 21-0 at halftime and secured a 34-11 victory. The Buccaneers built a 31-0 advantage after three quarters hosting the Eagles, winning 31-15.

TUESDAY – Early bets were on the Bucs -2.5, making the spread a market-consensus three points.

WEDNESDAY – No significant action on either team came, keeping spreads at three points across the board.

THURSDAY – Spreads at all four books remained at three points.

FRIDAY – Significant shifts to the spread came at DraftKings and Caesars. Both books to enough Rams money to drop under a key number of three points. FanDuel and BetMGM stayed put at three.

Bills at Chiefs

WILD-CARD RESULTS – Save for three kneel downs to end the game, the Bills’ offense scored a touchdown on every offensive possession to dismantle the Patriots, 47-17. The Chiefs handled the Steelers with three second-quarter touchdowns and three second-half scores to win 42-21.

TUESDAY – Early bettors were more convinced backing the Bills +2.5 to drop spreads to 1.5 points everywhere except Caesars (2).

WEDNESDAY – Caesars dropped to 1.5 points after taking enough Bills action. DraftKings conversely received Chiefs action, going back to the 2.5-point opening number. FanDuel and BetMGM held at 1.5 points.

THURSDAY – DraftKings took Bills action at 2.5 points to drop to two. All other books held at 1.5 points.
