Wildcard Weekend Gambling Preview
The NFL's new playoff format is unleashed this weekend with SUPER Wild-Card Weekend. For the first time, seven teams from each conference made the post-season which means there will be six games over the course of the first round of the playoffs instead of four. In the past, only six teams from the AFC and NFC made the playoffs and two of the top seeds from each conference earned a bye. But starting now in the 2020/2021 playoffs only the top seeds received a bye which puts twelve teams in action for the opening round.
In the first post-season episode of Bull Market Fantasy, Jim Cramer and Bill Enright discussed each match-up and revealed their best bets. Here are the current odds for each match-up courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook:
Colts vs. Bills (-6.5). Total points 51
Rams vs. Seahawks (-3.5). Total points 42.5
Bears vs. Saints (-10). Total points 47.5
Browns vs. Steelers (-6). Total points 47
Cramer and Enright also talked about the latest MVP odds. Aaron Rodgers is the current odds on favorite at -2000, which is not a bet worth taking given the very low reward factor. However, there are some great values for the other candidates like Derrick Henry and Josh Allen, but those carry a bit more risk.
