Opened: Bills -4, O/U 50

featured game | Buffalo Bills vs. Cincinnati Bengals

“This is the game of the weekend if you love playing quarterback. Joe Burrow vs. jose allen. We thought we would see this game in week 17, but it was canceled after Damar Hamlin went into cardiac arrest. That was the right thing to do, but that’s also why this game is in Buffalo. If the Bengals had won that game and were winning early on, this contest would have been in Cincinnati. As it is, it’s in Buffalo. Neither team looked very good last week against backup quarterbacks and both struggled to advance. I think both will play better here. The Bengals have problems on the offensive line, with three starters possibly out, but the Bills didn’t rush the passer as much last week against Miami and Burrow gets the ball out quickly. This should be a shootout with both quarterbacks having big days. In the end, I think it’s Allen and the Bills who will win in the fourth quarter.”

Pete Prisco, senior NFL writer for CBS Sports, is leading the Bills to win but the Bengals to keep it close. To read his divisional round breakdown, click here.

“I’m sure everyone is excited for us to have this game. The last time these two teams played, we all witnessed the unfortunate incident involving Damar Hamlin. Fortunately, he recovered enough for both teams to get their focus back on the game. Discounting the canceled matchup earlier this year, this is the first meeting between Joe Burrow and Josh Allen.

“This is probably the game of the weekend. It’s the first playoff matchup between two teams that are on winning streaks of at least eight games since the 2016 AFC Championship Game between the New England Patriots Y pittsburgh steelers. I must say that I am surprised that this strain is what it is. When he opened at BUF -4, I really thought it would be a low bet. Not.

“I expected both the Bills and Bengals to beat their opponents at Super Wild Card Weekend. Buffalo’s matchup against the miami dolphins I was particularly surprised when Allen turned the ball over three times. This year, he became the first player to lead the NFL in turnovers and make the playoffs since Eli Manning in 2007. By the way, Manning won the Super Bowl that year.

“If you’ve been up to date with my postseason group, the Bills are my official choice for the Super Bowl. I think it also helps in this matchup that the Bengals are dealing with multiple injuries on the offensive line with Alex Cappa and Jonah Williams, and then La’el Collins has already been ruled out for the year. That being said, I am looking forward to taking the points with the Bengals. Am I covering my Bills Super Bowl prediction? Maybe. But I also predicted that the Bengals would cover the gap in Super Bowl LVI against the los angeles ramsand I lose by exactly three points.”

CBS Sports’ Jordan Dajani likes the Bills advancing to the AFC Championship game, but the Bengals covering the gap. To read his column, click here.

Opened: 49ers -4, O/U 46

featured game | San Francisco 49ers vs. Dallas Cowboys

“What’s crazy about this game is that there’s definitely a chance it could turn into an offensive shootout. Since Week 7, these have been the TWO HIGHEST SCORING teams in the NFL and that mostly has to do with the fact that both teams had something big happen that week: the 49ers traded for Christian McCaffrey while Dak Prescott returned from injury.

“Although this game could turn into a shootout, it could also turn into a defensive scramble and that’s because both teams rank in the top five for fewest points allowed during the 2022 season.

“The most fascinating coaching matchup in this game definitely involves Kyle Shanahan’s offense against Dan Quinn’s defense. I swear, every time those two guys are on the same field together, something crazy happens. I’m sure you all remember the hawks‘Epic collapse at Super Bowl LI. In that game, the Falcons’ head coach was Quinn while the offensive coordinator was Shanahan, so I guess we’ll finally find out who to blame for Atlanta’s collapse.

“The 49ers have been one of the best teams in the NFL this year, but I’m still not sure how they’ll look against a good team. The 49ers had the easiest schedule in the NFL this year and a half.” their wins came in a bad division (Including the playoffs, they went 7-0 against teams in the NFC West and 7-4 against everyone else. Plus, since Brock Purdy took over as the starter, the 49ers really haven’t They’ve been tested because He really hasn’t faced any good teams Purdy has looked great, but he did face five teams in the regular season that finished with a combined record of 35-49-1.

“Last year, the 49ers were underdogs and I took them to shock the Cowboys. This year, I’m doing the opposite. Only four rookie quarterbacks — Shaun King, Ben Roethlisberger, Joe Flacco, Mark Sanchez — have ever done to a conference title game and I don’t think Purdy is going to be fifth.

“And you know what, I’ll even say this ends with a game-winning field goal from the guy (Brett Maher) who can’t make an extra point.”

John Breech loves the underdog this week, and he’ll lead the Cowboys to the NFC Championship game. To read his divisional round column, click here.

“The 49ers beat the Cowboys instead in the playoffs last year, so this will be a chance for the Cowboys to even things out. Dallas beat Tampa Bay on Monday night, so this is another game away from home in a short week, which will be a challenge”. The 49ers will actually have an extra day off since they played last Saturday. But the Cowboys seemed to find their offense against the Bucs, especially Dak Prescott. The 49ers have a better defense than Tampa Bay, but Dallas’ offense will be able to move the ball. For the 49ers, it will all come down to Brock Purdy against the pressure from Dallas. Purdy has been outstanding since he took over as the starter with five games remaining in the regular season. He played well by beating the Seahawks last week, but this will be the best defense he’s ever faced. Dallas’ pass rush can be disruptive, which I think is here. Prescott will get the better of the two quarterbacks in this one, as Dallas pulls off the upset.”

Before doing any Cowboys vs. 49ers picks or NFL Divisional Round predictions, you need to see what SportsLine senior analyst Larry Hartstein has to say. Hartstein, formerly a head writer for Covers and The Linemakers, combines a vast network of Las Vegas sources with an analytical approach he honed while working for Pro Football Focus. He entered the 2022 NFL season 427-344 all-time in NFL secondary picks (plus $3,764 per $100 players), including 394-330 against spread. Hartstein was 68-50 ATS and 8-3 in money line plays last season for a profit of $1,552. Hartstein is also 14-4 in his last 18 picks against the spread involving the Cowboys, which means he is uniquely qualified to make this pick.
