Only the best eight National Football League teams remain in the 2020 / 21 playoffs, and this weekend they will compete for a chance to play for the Conference Championship next week, then it’s just one more win away from appearing in Super Bowl LV.
Each of the four AFC and NFC teams has its own strengths and weaknesses, and the important skill of point-scoring is featured in this pair of fun special wagers, the goal is to figure out which teams you think will score the most and least points this weekend.
The NFL postseason typically favors strong defensive play, but this list is filled with point-scoring teams with powerful offenses known for finding the end zone, so here are our predictions, odds, and picks for both.
Have fun and good luck!
Odds taken 15 Jan, 2021 from SugarHouse
The Rams might have a tough time against these Packers, especially when it comes to scoring when your QB is still recovering from his thumb surgery.
Of these teams, the Los Angeles Rams score the least number of points per game on average, 23.3, so expect them to take the award for this category, especially against the Packers, who on average only allow opponents to score about 23 points per game.
The Cleveland Browns have proven this season that they can keep up with the higher scoring teams, posting over 30 points in six of their games this season, including 49 points in their game against the Cowboys, with a two-headed rushing attack (Nick Chubb / Kareem Hunt) that seem to always find the end zone.
If the Baltimore Ravens can continue the hot streak they have been on, chances are they will not qualify for this dubious honor, the team ranked the best running franchise in the league during the regular season scoring almost 30 points per outing.
Odds taken 15 Jan, 2021 from SugarHouse
|Kansas City Chiefs||+175
|New Orleans Saints||+450
The Bills could take full advantage of these Ravens and have one of their 30+ scoring outings, a rare sight in most postseasons since defense typically seems to rule the day.
The Kansas City Chiefs are playing the team with the weakest ranked defense, the Browns, so they could be the team that racks up some points this weekend, although, with the type of QB pressure Cleveland is capable of, it might be tougher than it seems.
The New Orleans Saints are facing the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and their strong defensive front line featuring Ndamukong Suh, Steve McLendon, and William Gholston, so points might not be easily come by if they can maintain full and unrelenting pressure on old man Drew Brees.
QB Josh Allen is on fire from under center, and the Buffalo Bills are a scoring machine, capable of hurting you with both their passing and running attacks, which makes them difficult to defend and to keep out of the end zone.
