2018 NFC Divisional Playoffs Free Betting Picks

The NFL is down to 8 teams and 7 games to play. Super Bowl 52 is coming this February to Minneapolis, and in two weeks we will find out which two teams will play in the Big Game. We have both Super Bowl teams from last season still alive and two wins away from another championship appearance. I'm going to focus on this weekend's NFC match-ups, while our very own Liam Banks will break down his AFC Championship picks. Let's take a look at a four game parlay I really like in the NFC Divisional Playoffs:

Atlanta Falcons -3 over Philadelphia Eagles

Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons are two wins away from getting back to the Super Bowl after blowing a 28-3 lead a season ago (in case you haven't heard). The underrated part of the Atlanta Falcons is their defense. The defense for Atlanta is impressive, and they should be able to take advantage of a Philadelphia offense that has struggled the last two weeks. The Falcons on the offensive side have plenty of firepower to get past an average Eagles defense. Look for the Falcons to get to 24 and win this game over the Eagles. Bet the Falcons -3.

Falcons/Eagles U41

Nick Foles is the starting quarterback, and despite his track record as a backup quarterback, I don't like his chances against an experienced Atlanta D in the postseason. The defense for Atlanta has been too good. On the offensive side for Atlanta - Matt Ryan to Julio Jones is scary, but Matt Bryant has been busy as a field goal kicker. Look for the Falcons to win this game around 24-14 and head to the NFC Championship either in Minnesota or New Orleans. Take the under 41.

New Orleans Saints +4 over Minnesota Vikings

Drew Brees has been there and done that in the postseason. Case Keenum and the Vikings have not. It's hard to imagine Sean Payton and his Saints as an underdog in this game. Maybe it's the non-belief in the Minnesota Vikings, but the Saints are going to use their dual rushing threat to score the win. Alvin Kamara and Mark Ingram were pretty slowed down in the game against the Panthers, but they still came away with a win. Look for those two to break loose against the Vikings in this one. New Orleans gets to 30+ in a straight up win. Bet the underdog Saints.

Saints/Vikings O45

Bet the over! The New Orleans Saints is ready to show they belong. If the Saints win this game, and the Falcons beat the Eagles - New Orleans would be home of the NFC South - or NFC title game. Drew Brees uses all his weapons and comes away with a win in this game. Bet the over, as the Saints win the game 31-20 over the Vikings on Sunday.

Enjoy this weekend of the National Football League. Football is almost over, so enjoy it while it lasts. Put a few bucks on this four-game parlay to make for an even better weekend.
