With our beloved Pittsburgh Steelers now finished this season, many fans tend to tune out of the playoffs. The best cure for this problem? Gambling.

While gambling is not a good habit to get into, small bets can help give you some excitement during this year’s playoff season. Using the FoxBet app, we have compiled some great bets for Wild Card Weekend. Some safe, and others high risk, but high reward.

 

BET BOOST: Each Team in Wild Card Weekend to Score 1+TD & 1+FG: Odds (+550).

The BET: $10 to win $55 – Most games teams tend to both kick a field goal and score at least one touchdown. The playoff teams playing this weekend all have formidable offenses. I like the odds here, this bet is not a sure thing but it’s far from impossible.

PARLAY: Titans +5.5 Spread / New Orleans -350 Money line / Under 45.0 Eagles vs Seahawks: Odds (+369)

The BET: $10 to win $36.86 – The Tennessee Titans have been the hottest team in the NFL over the last month and a half and have great shot at winning this game. Should they lose, I suspect the score to be within 3 points. The New Orleans Saints at home in a playoff game against the Minnesota Vikings (who stunned them two years ago in the divisional round) will be hungry for a victory. I also believe the Saints are a much better team. Finally the Philadelphia Eagles and Seattle Seahawks will be playing at a cold Lincoln Financial Field in 30-40 MPH winds. I expect a lot of rush attempts on both sides in a low scoring affair with minimal passing the under for this game is a great selection on its own this weekend if you’re looking for a safer bet.

SINGLE BET: Tennessee Titans – Money Line: Odds (+175)

The BET: $10 to win $17 – As noted above, the Titans have been the hottest team in the NFL over the last month and a half and have great shot at winning this game. Tom Brady‘s New England Patriots have not fared well against good teams this season as many of their wins have come against inferior opponents. With freezing cold temperatures and snow in the forecast, the run game will be a big factor in this game. The Titans have this year’s leading rusher in Derrick Henry and the Patriots pass defense is a much stronger unit than their run defense. Feel free to go in higher on the Titans in this one.

SINGLE BET: Buffalo Bills – Money Line: Odds (+120)

The BET: $5 to win $6 – This game is likely to be the most boring game of the weekend. The Buffalo Bills have an elite defense which is going up against a Houston Texans offense that ranked middle of the road in every offensive category. The Bills have a great shot to win this game.

PARLAY: Under 45.0 – Eagles vs Seahawks / Under 45.5 – Patriots vs Titans / New Orleans Saints – Money Line: Odds (+369)

The BET: $20 to win $73.72 – Also noted above, the Eagles and Seahawks will be playing at in the cold and 30-40 MPH winds. There should be a lot of rush attempts on both sides in a low scoring affair. The Patriots and Titans will also be playing in the cold and snow, the run game will be huge part of both team’s offensive game plan. Finally, the Saints are a heavy favorite and may be the safest bet of the weekend easy way to add some winnings in this parlay.
