NFL Divisional Round Playoff Parlay Betting Picks

January 12, 2016 Posted in US Sportsbooks Sites News by No Comments

I got off to a profitable start in this season’s NFL Playoffs with the correct call on both Kansas City and Minnesota in the Wild Card Round. The big guns in the league are back in action this week following a bye and I am ready to release another winning NFL parlay for this weekend’s Divisional Round based on betting odds from GT Bets.

NFL Divisional Round Playoff Parlay Betting Picks Game 1

Green Bay Packers at Arizona Cardinals: Take Arizona -7

The anemic Packers’ offense showed some signs of life last week in their 35-18 victory over Washington as slight one-point road favorites, but that was more of a testament to just how bad the NFC East really was this season. Green Bay was completely outplayed just a few weeks back in a 38-8 loss to the Cardinals as a six-point road underdog and then it came up flat in a 20-13 loss to Minnesota as a three-point home favorite to close-out the regular season.

 

Arizona comes into this game as healthy as expected for this time of the season and well-rested with last week’s bye. The veteran leadership of Carson Palmer at quarterback will go a long way towards keeping the second-highest scoring offense in the league on track and the beatdown that the Cardinals’ defense put on Green Bay quarterback Aaron Rodgers in that Week 16 win is still fresh in everyone’s mind. The game will be closer this time around, but bank on Arizona still covering the touchdown spread with relative ease.

Parlay Pick For Game 2

Seattle Seahawks at Carolina Panthers: Take Carolina -2.5

A missed chip-shot field is the only reason why Seattle is still playing football this season. I fully realize that the game against Minnesota was almost unplayable given the weather conditions, but there is no way that the Seahawks are going to hang with Carolina on the scoreboard this Sunday given the way their offense played against the Vikings for the majority of that game.

The Panthers were the top scoring team in the NFL with 31.2 points a game behind a MVP-worthy performance by quarterback Cam Newton. I fully expect Carolina to have its share of success against an overrated Seattle defense, but the main reason I am laying the points on the home team in this matchup is a Panthers’ defense that was ranked fourth in the NFL against the run and sixth in total yards (322.9) and points (19.2) allowed.
