Make no mistake about it BetUS NFL betting nation: Lamar Jackson and Josh Allen will be squarely in the spotlight on Saturday night!
Jackson and the Baltimore Ravens will look to get the sportsbook betting road upset over Allen and the Buffalo Bills when the Super Bowl hopefuls square off in their highly anticipated AFC divisional round showdown.
Despite winning the Heisman Trophy as a junior at Louisville, Jackson was the 32nd and final pick in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Buffalo selected Allen with the seventh overall pick in the same draft class after the strong-armed, but inaccurate signal-caller finished his collegiate career at the University of Wyoming.
Can Jackson, the league’s reigning MVP, lead Baltimore to victory for NFL online betting enthusiasts as a road underdog or will the blossoming Allen continue his MVP-caliber play to help the Bills hold it down at home?
Let’s find out everything that really matters for both teams as we inch closer toward the weekend. First, let’s look at the complete divisional round NFL Playoff Odds!
