NFL Consensus Picks For Sunday
|Teams||Point Spread||% Handle||% Bets||Total Points||% Handle||% Bets||Moneyline||% Handle||% Bets|
|CLE Browns||+10||48%||54%||Over 57.0||83%||71%||+400||33%||23%|
|KC Chiefs||-10||52%||46%||Under 57.0||17%||29%||-500||67%||77%|
|TB Buccaneers||+3||49%||52%||Over 52.0||81%||79%||+145||75%||67%|
|NO Saints||-3||51%||48%||Under 52.0||19%||21%||-167||25%||33%|
The money is split almost evenly on the spread in both games. The Chiefs were dominant during the regular season, going 14-2 overall, but they only covered the spread in seven of their 16 games. The double-digit spread seems to have some bettors leaning towards Cleveland.
In the Saints-Bucs game, the public is undecided. The Saints beat up on the Bucs twice during the regular season, but there are enough Tom Brady believers out there to get significant money on Tampa Bay. When it comes to the moneyline, the Bucs are bringing in 75% of the total handle. As usual, the public loves the over on the total points in both games.
Sunday’s doubleheader features two intriguing quarterback matchups. Patrick Mahomes is going up against former No. 1 overall pick Baker Mayfield. Obviously, Mahomes has the championship pedigree, but Mayfield is talented enough to make some noise.
In the nightcap, Tom Brady will duel with Drew Brees for possibly the last time in their careers. This will be the first playoff meeting between the future Hall of Famers.
