San Francisco 49ers at Dallas Cowboys
The 49ers finished the regular season by winning four of their last five games and clinching the final wild-card spot. The 49er’s offense is well balanced, and George Kittle and Deebo Samuel are two of the most electrifying players in the NFL.
Dallas stomped out the Eagles to close out their season and played great all year. I think they will win, but this game will come down to the wire, and it would not shock me if the 49ers pull it out.
Game Pick: Cowboys
Betting Pick: 49ers +3, Over 50.5
Pittsburgh Steelers at Kansas City Chiefs
These teams faced off in week 16, and the Steelers were railroaded 36-10. The Steelers won their last two games to sneak into the playoffs. This game is Big Ben’s last run, and it will end on Sunday.
The Chiefs will put up points, and I don’t see how the Steelers will keep up with them. Travis Kelce did get banged up in Week 18, but since that game was on a Saturday, he will have an extra day to get right. It’s been a great career, Big Ben.
Game Pick: Chiefs
Betting Pick: Under 46
Arizona Cardinals at Los Angeles Rams
Both of these teams disappointingly finished the regular season. The Cardinals lost four of their last five games, and while the Rams have won four of their previous five, Matthew Stafford has looked awful. Stafford has thrown eight interceptions in his last four games.
The Rams have been winning despite him, but last week they lost the game on a Stafford interception, and if it weren’t for a Seattle upset, they would have lost the division as well.
I am going with the Cardinals to win this game. They have an aggressive defense, and I think Stafford’s turnovers follow him into the postseason. There will be a lot of fireworks in this game.
Game Pick: Cardinals
Betting Pick: Cardinals ML, Cardinals +3.5, and over 49
