AFC Saturday Parlay: Ride With Chiefs, Stroud

Super Wild Card weekend gets off to a nice start with two opening matchups on Saturday. Let’s take a look at our NFL expert picks for the first day of playoff action.

I am here to walk you through the best Wild Card parlay for the Browns-Texans and Dolphins-Chiefs games. My best NFL predictions for this parlay is taking the Chiefs to cover the spread and the over in rushing yards for Texans quarterback C.J. Stroud.

Let’s take a look at the breakdown for a Wild Card Saturday parlay.

  • The Browns are 11-6 against the spread this season.
  • The Texans are 9-8 against the spread in Las Vegas NFL odds.
  • Kansas City games have hit the under in the team’s last five games as a home favorite of between 3 ½ and 10 points.
  • Houston is 0-4 against the spread in their last four playoff games.
  • The Chiefs are 9-8 against the spread.
  • The Dolphins are 10-7 against the spread this season.
  • Miami is 4-3 in away games and 1-4 as an underdog.
  • The Browns are 6-0 against the spread against teams with a winning record.


C.J. Stroud Over 10.5 Rushing Yards (-108)

I badly want to back the Texans in the NFL lines against the Browns for best NFL bets today. By the end of the week, I might eventually get there, but Cleveland’s defense is enough reason to pause.

Yes, the Browns are elite at stopping the run, but Stroud is going to need to utilize his legs for the Texans to have success. During big matchups at Ohio State (see his performance versus Georgia), Stroud showed more of a willingness to run.

Stroud breaking off a couple long runs will keep Cleveland’s defense honest. The Texans quarterback has rushed for 10 or more yards in eight games this season.

Bet online the over for Stroud’s rushing yards.

Chiefs to Cover -4 ½ vs Dolphins

The high in Kansas City is predicted to be 7 degrees with a low of -6. Not exactly the environment conducive for a Florida team built around its offense to dominate.

You’re going to hear a lot about the death of the Chiefs in the coming weeks. As long as No. 15 is behind center, the Chiefs are going to be difficult to beat in the postseason.

Kansas City might eventually stumble in the NFL playoffs, but it is not going to be at Arrowhead Stadium against a banged-up Dolphins team. We’re taking Chiefs to cover in the NFL Vegas odds.



Questions Of The Day

Can the Browns hold the Texans to under 15 points in the first half?

Yes, this is a stout Browns defense.

Will the under hit in the Chiefs-Dolphins game?

Despite the reputation of both offenses, we like the under in this matchup given the adverse weather conditions.
