Tennessee at Baltimore

Saturday, Jan. 11 (CBS, 8:05 p.m. ET)

Titans Road Record: 6-3 SU, 6-3 ATS, 5-4 O/U
Ravens Home Record: 7-1 SU, 4-4 ATS, 4-4 O/U

Record versus Playoff Teams
Includes Wild Card Results

Tennessee: 3-3 SU, 3-3 ATS, 3-3 O/U
Baltimore: 5-1 SU, 4-2 ATS, 2-4 O/U

Opening Odds

The Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook opened Baltimore as a 10-point favorite while the total was sent out at 49. The number on the Ravens has dropped to -9 and the ‘over/under’ has dropped to 48 at the Westgate while a couple other sportsbooks have gone down to 47 .

2019 Off the Bye

Baltimore has been one of the best teams when playing with rest under head coach John Harbaugh. Since he started in 2018, the Ravens have gone 10-2 SU and 9-3 ATS. This season, they blasted the Patriots 37-20 in Week 8 after their bye week. During Harbaugh’s tenure, Baltimore has only earned a playoff bye once when it was the No. 2 seed during the 2011 campaign. The Ravens defeated the Texans 20-13 but failed to cover as 7 -point favorites. Following that win, Baltimore would end up losing 23-20 at New England in the AFC Championship.

Head-to-Head

Prior to 2019, these teams met in each of the previous regular seasons with Tennessee capturing a 23-20 win at home in 2017 before Baltimore avenged that loss with a 21-0 victory at Nashville in 2018. The Ravens had Joe Flacco at quarterback in that road win while the Titans has Marcus Mariota under center.

Baltimore has won four straight (2-2 ATS) games against AFC South foes, which includes a 41-7 rout of Houston in Week 11 of this year’s season. Tennessee blasted Cleveland 43-13 in Week 1 as a 5 -point road underdog and that helped the team improve to 5-2 over their last seven encounters against teams from the AFC North.

Playoff Notes

Baltimore has gone 10-6 SU and 11-5 all-time in the playoffs under Harbaugh but only three of those games took place at home where the team went 2-1 SU and 1-2 ATS. This is the largest point-spread that Baltimore has been favored by in the playoffs under Harbaugh. Ravens QB Lamar Jackson has only played in one playoff game and he’s 0-1 after the Ravens dropped a 23-17 decision to the Chargers as three-point home favorites in the Wild Card round.

Tennessee head coach Mike Vrabel won his first career playoff game last Saturday as the Titans defeated the Patriots 20-13 as five-point road underdogs. Tennessee went 1-1 in the 2017 postseason, both games played on the road. The win over New England was also the first for Titans QB Ryan Tannehill.

Total Notes

Tennessee has watched the ‘over’ go 10-7, which included a 5-4 mark away from home. Since Tannehill took over as starter, the Titans have seen the ‘over’ go 9-2 and the team has scored 20 or more points in every game. Baltimore averaged 33.2 points per game on offense, which was ranked first in the league but the attack was more explosive (36.5 PPG) on the road than at home (29.9 PPG). The ‘over/under’ produced 4-4 results at M&T Bank Stadium and that was helped with strong defensive scoring averages (18.6 PPG).

Dating back to 2000, the Ravens have seen the ‘under’ cash in six straight home playoff games and only two opponents were able to score more than 20 points. Including last Saturday’s result at Foxboro, Tennessee has watched the ‘under’ cash in six of their last seven playoff games.

Going back to 2014, the Ravens have seen the ‘under’ go 7-2-1 against AFC South opponents and that includes a 4-0-1 mark at home. The defense only allowed 14.6 PPG. Meanwhile, the Titans have watched the ‘over’ go 7-3 versus AFC North teams during the same span.

Minnesota at San Francisco

Saturday, Jan. 11 (NBC, 4:35 p.m. ET)

Vikings Road Record: 6-3 SU, 6-3 ATS, 5-4 O/U
49ers Home Record: 7-1 SU, 5-3 ATS, 5-3 O/U

Record versus Playoff Teams

Includes Wild Card Results

Minnesota: 2-4 SU, 2-4 ATS, 3-3 O/U
San Francisco: 3-2 SU, 4-1 ATS, 2-2-1 O/U

Opening Odds

After the Vikings defeated the Saints 26-20 in their Wild Card matchup, the Westgate Las Vegas SuperBook sent out San Francisco as a seven-point home favorite with a total of 45 . Early money came in on the Vikings and the currently line is 49ers -6 while the ‘over/under’ has held in check.

2019 Off the Bye

San Francisco defeated Cleveland 31-3 in Week 5 after its ‘bye’ week and that snapped an eight-game winless streak (0-7-1) for the 49ers when playing with rest. It was also the first win for 49ers head coach Kyle Shanahan when playing with rest since he took over the team in 2017 after starting 0-2.

Head-to-Head

These teams met in Week 1 of the 2018 regular season and Minnesota stopped San Francisco 24-16 as a six-point home favorite. 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo tossed a career-high three interceptions in that loss while his counterpart Kirk Cousins passed for 244 yards and two touchdowns in the win for the Vikings.

Minnesota dropped a 37-30 loss to Seattle in Week 13 on Monday Night Football. Including that loss, the Vikings have lost three of their last four encounters against NFC West foes and they haven’t captured a road win against this division since 2004.

San Francisco blitzed Green Bay 37-8 as a three-point home favorite in Week 11. Prior to that win, the 49ers went 1-3 in the 2018 regular season when matched up against the NFC North but Garropolo missed two of those games due to injury.

Playoff Notes

Minnesota’s win over New Orleans on Sunday was the first road playoff victory for the club since 2005. The win pushed head coach Mike Zimmer’s record to 2-2 overall in the postseason. The last appearance for the Vikings in the Divisional Playoff round came in 2017 and it snuck past the Saints 29-24 with a late touchdown reception. Cousins owns a 1-1 career playoff record as a starter.

San Francisco hasn’t been in the playoffs since the 2013-14 season. The club won its first two games on the road but came up short to Seattle (17-23) in the NFC Championship game. This will be the first career playoff start for Garropolo.

This will be the first playoff game for Shanahan but he does have experience in the postseason as a coordinator, most recently with Atlanta in 2016. The Falcons averaged 36 PPG during that playoff run, but the offense took the blame in their Super Bowl LI loss (28-34) to the Patriots when they were held to just seven points in the second-half.

Total Notes

Prior to Sunday’s ‘under’ result versus New Orleans, Minnesota was on a 5-0 ‘over’ run in its last five away games. Since being held to 16 and 6 points to divisional foes in the Packers and Bears respectively in September, the Minnesota offense has averaged 30.8 PPG in its last seven as a visitor.

San Francisco started the season with a 5-1 ‘under’ run before closing on a 7-2-1 ‘over’ surge. The Niners played their first eight games of the season against non-playoff teams before losing to Seattle (24-27) in Week 10. Make a note that All-Pro tight end George Kittle was ‘out’ for San Francisco in that setback to the Seahawks.

At home, the ‘over’ went 5-3 for the 49ers behind the top-ranked scoring offense at home this season with 32.4 PPG. As mentioned above, they scored 31 when playing with rest but the ‘under’ has gone 3-0 in games played after the ‘bye’ for San Francisco under Shanahan.

Minnesota has watched the ‘under’ go 3-2 in its last five postseason games, which includes the Wild Card result this past weekend at New Orleans. The 49ers have watched the ‘under’ go 3-0 in their last postseason appearance (2013-14).

Going back to 2003, the ‘under’ is on a 6-1 run in this head-to-head series.

Hot & Not Report - DP Angles
Matt Blunt

Week of January 6th

Wildcard Weekend is in the books, and with both No. 6 seeds advancing, knocking off two future Hall-of-Fame QB's at home in the process, it makes for a changing of the guard the rest of the way. There are only two starting QB's left of the eight remaining teams that have played in a Super Bowl before, and after next week that number will be down to one with the Seahawks and Packers meeting in Green Bay.

But with just three weeks left in the season before a new champion is crowned, I thought it best to take a look back at a couple of different statistical categories that may not have a direct correlation to playoff success from the Divisional Round on, but have performed fairly well over the years.

So do what you will with this information going forward, but it won't be hard to see if it continues to follow suit. Although maybe the changing of the guard we've seen with the old guard at QB going down could apply to how bettors approach the rest of the NFL playoffs as well.

Who's Hot

During the past three years, from the Divisional Round on, backing the team that finished the regular season with a Turnover Margin per game that was at least 0.2 better than their opponent has gone 15-2 ATS

Turnovers are something that are hard to handicap, but if a team's been on the positive side of them all year long, that tends to hold true in the playoffs. Using a margin of +0.2 or better helps eliminate some potential rounding errors if you were to look at say, giveaways and takeaways per game, so that's why I went with that.

A 15-2 ATS record does mean it's not applied to four different games over the past years (4 Div games +2 Conf +1 Super Bowl). Last year's AFC Championship and Super Bowl were two of those four occurrences with the Chiefs and Patriots being tied in turnover margin per game at +0.6, and with the Rams checking in at +0.7, the difference of 0.1 between them and New England doesn't fit.

The other omissions here were the “Minneapolis Miracle” game between the Saints and Vikings after the 2017 season (New Orleans was 0.1 better then Minnesota that year and the Saints did end up covering that game by the hook), and the Super Bowl between New England and Atlanta. That Super Bowl fell into the same scenario as the “Minneapolis Miracle” with New England being 0.1 better in turnover margin per game and ultimately covering the spread.

What that does ultimately mean as well, is that if you just want to take the team that finished the regular season with the better turnover margin per game, you'd still be sitting with a 17-3 ATS record in this span, with the Chiefs-Patriots game last year being the only one that doesn't apply. Turnovers might be somewhat random, but a run like this does put a bit of a crack in that argument.

It hasn't always worked as well during Wildcard Weekend, as evidenced by the two best teams in turnover margin per game this season being eliminated (New England and New Orleans), while Buffalo was the other Wildcard team to fall while facing a team with a worst number in this stat. But, with the cream rising to the top from the Divisional Round and beyond, this regular season turnover margin stat is something to consider.

And looking forward for the Divisional games next weekend, we've got Minnesota (+0.8) vs San Francisco (+0.2), Tennessee (+0.4) vs Baltimore (+0.6), Houston (0.0) vs Kansas City (+0.5), and Seattle (+0.8) vs Green Bay (+0.8).

Those would suggest that backing Minnesota, Baltimore, and Kansas City next week should result in a profitable outcome should this trend hold, with the Seahawks/Packers game not applicable given their dead heat. Whether or not that's how it plays out remains to be seen, but if you are looking for a bit more support in supporting one of those sides you may already like, don't shy away from this data.


Who's Not

Expecting teams with a regular season point differential that wasn't +100 or better to make the Super Bowl; Only seven of 32 Super Bowl teams with a point differential of +99 or less since the 2003-04 season have made the big game

This trend was a little hard to formulate the correct statement for, because in other words, you really want to expect teams that finished the year with a point differential of +100 or better to be involved in the Super Bowl. In fact, since that 2003-04 season (the New England/Carolina Super Bowl), there has been at least one team involved in Super Bowl that did finish the year with a +100 or better point differential.

Taking it a bit further, you generally want to back teams that finished 1st or 2nd in their conference in point differential to go all the way, as the last time we had a Super Bowl game that didn't involve the at least one of the Top 2 teams from their conference in this category was back in 2008-09 season when Pittsburgh (who was 3rd in the AFC in point differential) beat Arizona (who was dead last among NFC playoff teams that year). That's 10 straight Super Bowls of having at least one of the top two teams in this category (among playoff teams) go all the way.

What that means for this year, is that Baltimore (+249 for 1st in AFC) and San Francisco (+169 for 1st in NFC) are on the fast track to be Super Bowl bound. As the respective #1 seeds in both conferences, that's not exactly a ground breaking statement, but before last year's game when the Patriots and Rams came in ranked 2nd in point differential in their respective conferences, the last time we didn't have at least one top ranked team in their conference in point differential in the Super Bowl, was oddly enough, the Baltimore/San Francisco Super Bowl after the 2012 season. In fact, at least one of the top teams in their respective conferences has made the Super Bowl in 12 of those 16 Super Bowls.

More importantly, with 16 different combinations left for this year's Super Bowl, what this trend does suggest is that we will NOT see a Super Bowl between Green Bay (+63) and Houston (-7), Green Bay (+63) and Tennessee (+71), Seattle (+7) and Houston (-7) or Seattle and Tennessee (+71).

Sure, one of these teams could go the distance, and I actually believe one will, but they'll likely be up against a powerhouse from this year, as the rest of teams, and historically at least one Super Bowl team has had a point differential of +100 or better.

Oh and for those that are curious, the sub-100 point differential team I do believe will go the distance this year are the Green Bay Packers. And the team that I hope they'll be up against is the team in the AFC I've liked since the summer; the Kansas City Chiefs (+143 point differential).

State Farm Super Bowl here we come.

Minnesota Vikings at San Francisco 49ers (-7)

Sixth-seeded Minnesota is the surprise guest at the NFC divisional-round party after an upset win in the wild-card round. The Vikings (11-6 SU, 10-7 ATS) went to New Orleans as 7.5-point underdogs Sunday and emerged with a 26-20 overtime victory, knocking out the Saints for the second time in three years.

Meanwhile, San Francisco rested up as the No. 1 seed, giving it a bye and home-field advantage in the NFC playoffs. The 49ers (13-3 SU, 9-6-1 ATS) capped the regular season with a big win over rival Seattle, 26-21 laying 3.5 points on the road.

“The Vikings will see a lot of support off that upset of New Orleans,” Murray said, noting the first move on this 4:35 p.m. ET Saturday game was tightening the Niners to -6.5. “The Saints really gave that game away. The 49ers will be in their share of teasers and parlays, but not as many as the two AFC favorites.”

Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens (-10)

Tennessee, the AFC’s sixth seed, also sent a little shockwave around the league by upending the reigning Super Bowl champ. The Titans (10-7 SU, 9-7-1 ATS) fended off No. 3 seed New England 20-13 as 4.5-point road pups Saturday.

Baltimore hasn’t lost a game since September, nabbing the AFC’s No. 1 seed and a bye week in the process. The Ravens (14-2 SU, 10-6 ATS) finished with a 28-10 victory over Pittsburgh as 2-point home ‘dogs, despite playing a host of backups in what was a meaningless Week 17 game for John Harbaugh’s squad.

“The Ravens will be in every moneyline parlay, every parlay and every teaser,” Murray said of anticipated action for this 8:15 p.m. ET Saturday contest. “Baltimore has been on cruise control for the last couple of months, and there’s nobody left that they wouldn’t be a big favorite against.”

That said, the first move in this line was a tick down to Baltimore -9.5.

Bet Now/Bet Later NFL Divisional Round odds: Go grab the total for this ground game
Jason Logan

The Titans have a very run-heavy offense which could soak up the play clock and keep the dangerous Baltimore offense off the the field in their Divisional Round matchup this weekend.

The NFL playoffs roll into the Divisional Round, where the betting markets reacts to the Wild Card results, forcing some interesting movement versus teams that earned a bye week in the opening round.

Getting the best of the number is vital in the postseason and with only four games on the board, Bookmakers have plenty of time to fine tune the lines before kickoff. Covers’ senior industry analyst Jason Logan looks at the opening odds and early action, giving you his Bet Now/Bet Later sides and totals for this weekend’s divisional matchups.

SPREAD TO BET NOW: SEATTLE SEAHAWKS (+4) AT GREEN BAY PACKERS

There are plenty of people down on the Packers and the fact that Green Bay enjoyed a first-round bye after a 13-3 SU record built on the back on softer opposition. Books opened the Cheeseheads at the dead number of -4 hosting the Seahawks, giving themselves some breathing room to move off action.

While most books are sticking to Green Bay -4, the juice on the pointspread is trending towards a move to -3.5 at some online markets as of Monday morning. Seattle was able to escape Philadelphia with a 17-9 win over the Eagles in the Wild Card Round, thanks in part to knocking QB Carson Wentz out of the game with a concussion after only two series.

If you like the Seahawks to cover in Lambeau this Sunday, grab all the points you can with Seattle right now. The Packers were able to slow down the Vikings offense in Week 16, but this defense hasn’t faced many challenges down the stretch. The banged-up Seahawks could also return some key bodies on the offensive line as well (Duane Brown and Mike Iupati), so try to stay ahead of those injury updates.


SPREAD TO BET LATER: HOUSTON TEXANS (+10) AT KANSAS CITY CHIEFS

Houston’s Wild Card Weekend win over Buffalo wasn’t pretty. There were bad decisions made by both teams on the field and the sideline but in the end, the Texans were able to get on the back of QB Deshaun Watson and squeeze one out in overtime.

This line opened as low as Houston +7.5 (most at +8) visiting the Chiefs but that quickly moved as high as +10 and many books are dealing a double-digit spread for this Divisional Round game in Kansas City. The Chiefs enjoyed a first-round bye and, as the No. 2 seed in the AFC, get to host this game at Arrowhead, which will be deafening come Sunday.

The Texans did earn a 31-24 victory over the Chiefs in K.C. back in Week 6 but Kansas City finished the season on a six-game winning run and posted a 5-0-1 ATS record in that span, playing its best football to finish the schedule. While this line made a big move, pushing from the dead number of -8 to -10 isn’t as risky. Houston backers can grab +10 and wait it out to see if you can get +10.5 once the public plays the Chiefs.


TOTAL TO BET NOW: UNDER 47.5 TENNESSEE TITANS AT BALTIMORE RAVENS

The total for Titans at Ravens opened as big as 48.5 and is on the way down, with the number dipping as low as 47 at some books. Both teams put up a pile of points in the second half of the schedule, but postseason football is a different beast.

Tennessee is coming of a grinding win over New England, in which it handed the ball off more than 70 percent of the time and controlled the clock for over 31 minutes. The Titans must take a similar approach this Saturday, pounding the Baltimore defense with RB Derrick Henry and keeping MVP Lamar Jackson on the sideline.

When the Ravens do get the ball, there’s no secret to their game plan. This playbook went with the run on more than 56 percent of its play calls this season, which should keep the game clock draining and leave little time for scoring.

Beyond the offenses, both teams have solid stop units as well. Tennessee handcuffed Tom Brady and the Patriots in the Wild Card Round and Baltimore allowed just four opponents to score more than 20 points all season. If you’re on the Under, get in on this number now.


TOTAL TO BET LATER: OVER 45 MINNESOTA VIKINGS AT SAN FRANCISCO 49ERS

Behind a methodical rushing game (almost 37 minutes in TOP) and persistent pass rush, the Vikings defense looked good against the Saints, at least in the first three quarters of Sunday’s Wild Card game. Then, New Orleans stormed back and forced overtime.

San Francisco is very much cut from a similar cloth: control time and tempo with the run and disrupt the passing game with a rush that racked up 48 sacks on the season. That said, the Niners gave up some bigger offensive numbers in December and finished 3-1-1 Over/Under in the final five games.

Minnesota’s defense has been extremely inconsistent this season and got beat up on the road, allowing almost five points more per game as a visitor. This Over/Under opened 45.5 and has come down a tick to 45 points (even flashed a 44.5 at one book). If you think there are more points in store for this NFC Divisional Round battle in the Bay, take your time and see if you can land something sub-45.

Dalvin Cook looked healthy, racking up 120 total yards and two touchdowns in the Wild Card win over the Saints. Minnesota fed its workhorse running back, as Cook amassed 31 touches - a trend we hope carries into this weekend versus the San Francisco 49ers.

The Niners have an exceptional pass defense — the second-best in the league — which leaves Mike Zimmer and the Minnesota offense to try to exploit San Fran’s No. 11 rush defense, which allowed a middle-of-the-pack 113 yards rushing per game over the course of the year.

Cook will be going from turf to grass this week which helps the Minnesota RB. Cook’s splits favor grass over turf: 4.77 yards per carry and 10.16 yards per reception on grass versus 4.54 ypc and 8.52 ypr indoors.

With the Niners giving up the fewest passing yards to running backs, we're going to avoid Cook’s total yards and instead take the Over on his 80.5 rushing yards as the Minny RB has averaged 107.5 rushing yards per game against Top-10 teams this year.

The Baltimore Ravens have come out of the gates strong this year, leading the league in first-quarter points at eight per game. The Ravens scored 22 times in the first quarter in 2019 with 16 of those being touchdowns. Baltimore will have its hands full with Derrick Henry, but if Lamar Jackson & Co. can jump out to an early lead, they could force Mike Vrabel and the offense to lean on the pass a bit more than they are used to. Tennessee finished last in the league in pass attempts per game over the final three weeks of the regular season.

Now that it's not his birthday and that Henry's hype is at its peak, Saturday night might be a great time to fade the league’s best rusher as his stock has never been higher.

The Ravens have allowed 101.2 rushing yards per game to opposing teams at home, which is the sixth-lowest production and included five Top-15 DVOA rushing offenses. We're taking a stab and fading the league’s leading rusher. Take Henry’s 93.5 rush yards and hit the Under.

If you want to somewhat hedge against yourself and against the elite skills of the Titans’ RB, look at Henry’s Over 0.5 rushing TDs for a very reasonable -117. Henry has scored a rushing touchdown AND been held to Under 93 rushing yards six times this year

Tennessee is 8-3 TY with Tannehill at QB; they won their last four road games, scoring 32 ppg. Titans are 6-3 SU on road TY; they’re 3-2 ATS as a road underdog. Eight of their last ten games went over. Tennessee is in playoffs for only 2nd time in last 11 years. Last week was Tannehill’s first playoff game; he went 8-15/72 passing, but the Titans won in Foxboro, running for 200+ yards. Baltimore won its last ten games after a 2-2 start; they’re in playoffs for 8th time in 12 years- last time they got by this round was 2012. Baltimore is 2-4 ATS as a home favorite TY. LW was Jackson’s first playoff game; Ravens have run for 200+ nine times TY, including last three games in row. Ravens-Titans split last ten meetings; Titans haven’t been to Baltimore in five years. Last six years, #1 seeds are 11-1 SU in this round, 7-5 ATS.

MARK MY WORDS

The Baltimore Ravens scored more touchdowns by tight ends than any other team in the league, finishing the year with 14. Most of that production was done by the Ravens’ Mark Andrews who led the league’s highest-scoring offense in targets, catches, receiving yards and touchdowns. Andrews averaged 62.9 yards per game (7th) and 14.2 yards per reception (4th) at home this year.

The Baltimore weapon will face a Titans defense that gave up 57.8 yards per game (12th-most) to opposing TEs and allowed five opposing TEs to eclipse their season averages over the last six weeks.

We are buying Over shares of Andrews’ yardage total of 49.5, as he is 5-2 O/U on that total over his last seven games and we don’t think his “limited” practice tag is of any major concern.


AARON TO AARON

Aaron Jones is a big reason the Green Bay Packers are hosting a Divisional playoff game. Jones was second in the league in touchdowns with 16 and averaged nearly 100 total yards a game. Part of his success was his role in the passing game as the Green Bay running back had three or more catches eight times and put up nearly 30 yards receiving a game.

The Seattle Seahawks have been burned by opposing running backs on the ground (167 yards per game in Weeks 15-17) and through the air (61 receiving yards in Weeks 15-17) of late. With Seattle giving up just 1.1 passing TDs per game (4th-fewest) and forcing 0.9 interceptions per game (6th-most) this year, Aaron Rodgers might need to look underneath a bit more on Sunday night.

We are jumping on the Over 24.5 receiving yards for Jones as he is averaged 33.7 yards receiving in all 13 of Green Bay’s wins this year.


SATURDAY 6-POINT TEASER

For the second week in a row, we are spoiled with a Saturday and Sunday filled with playoff football that doesn’t involve hopping around to different games — the perfect schedule. We are looking to tease both Saturday games and find the best bet that will hopefully keep us alive with action throughout the day, as well as earning close to double our bet.

With the line sitting at Minnesota +7 as of Wednesday night, we are going to push that to +13 and take a very underappreciated Vikings team for nearly two touchdowns. The Vikings did not lose by more than 13 points all year and were 3-2 ATS as underdogs this year. We also like the fact if San Francisco gets up by more than 10 points, Minnesota has the weapons to answer quickly (hopefully the injury news with Adam Thielen and Stefon Diggs are just smoke).

For the nightcap, we like teasing the total down to 40.5 as we think both teams could put up points, especially if Baltimore gets up early and forces the Titans to play catch up. Tennessee showed us it can put up 20 points on the road against a Top-5 defense and Baltimore is the highest-scoring team in the league.

Our two-game, six-point teaser looks like this: Minnesota +13 & TEN/BAL Over 40.5 for -110


WILLING TO WAGER ON WILLIAMS

Since coming back from injury in Week 16, Kansas City Chiefs running back Damien Williams has topped 53.5 yards rushing, passed 2.5 receptions and eclipsed 23.5 yards receiving in both games. All of those are the RB’s totals for this weekend versus Houston’s 26th-ranked DVOA defense and 31st-ranked pass defense to opposing running backs. Williams’ backers could be treating themselves to top-shelf selections after Sunday’s afternoon game.

Williams has averaged 17.5 touches since his return and ran to the tune of 6.75 yards per carry and 8.14 yards per reception over that two-game stretch. Houston didn’t get burned on the ground last week as Devin Singletary rushed for just 58 yards on 13 carries, but the Buffalo back did take seven targets and turn them into six catches for 76 yards with a long of 38.

We are getting behind Williams in the passing game and taking a long look at all three of his passing props with the Over in mind: 2.5 receptions, 23.5 yards receiving and a longest reception of 13.5 yards.

Saturday's Playoff Essentials
Tony Mejia

Vikings at 49ers, 4:35 pm ET, NBC
Betting Odds: San Francisco -7, Total 44

San Francisco (13-3 SU, 9-6-1 ATS) returns to the playoffs for the first time since 2013, having finished atop the NFC with one of its best seasons over the past 35 years. This new version of the 49ers still has a lot to prove to garner further mention among the franchise’s top teams, much less the ones that reached three straight NFC championship games under Jim Harbaugh.

This is a new group that is tasting success for the first time. Jimmy Garoppolo, who struggled earlier in the season as he returned from an ACL tear, will be making his first postseason start. Santa Clara’s Levi’s Stadium will host the Niners’ entire run since they were able to edge the Saints in comeback fashion in New Orleans and then held off the Seahawks by an inch in Seattle. Mix in a dominant performance at home against Green Bay in Week 12 and the 49ers have definitely earned the right to remain at home for as long as they’re alive.

That didn’t do New Orleans much good against Minnesota (11-6, 10-7) last week in the biggest upset of Wild Card Weekend. The Vikings closed as a seven-point underdog and responded to blowing a late lead by breaking through with a touchdown to open overtime. The Vikes won 26-20 on Kyle Rudolph’s touchdown catch on third down and deserved to come out on top, controlling the game against the Saints with a strong performance from RB Dalvin Cook and his offensive line. A defensive backfield decimated by injuries held up against a Brees-led passing attack and Kirk Cousins put together a number of clutch throws to help deliver the upset.

The bye should certainly help the 49ers, who had multiple bumps and bruises they had to overcome throughout December, but don’t make too much of the Vikings coming in on a short week after winning last Sunday afternoon.

Although they do have a day less to prepare compared to the conventional week-to-week NFL grind, it’s not like Minnesota is being asked to turn around and play on a Thursday night. The Vikings won two of their three games without a full week’s preparation and covered all three times.

The 49ers opened as a -6.5/-7-point favorite, which is where the figure continues to hover at as kickoff approaches. It’s no secret that Minnesota will look to test its physicality against a team that has excelled at what Mike Zimmer terms “big-boy football,” getting lined up and blocking and attempting to establish the run. The Vikings finished sixth in the NFL in rushing, while San Francisco ended up as a middle-of-the-road run defense, coming in 17th.

A pass defense that was the best in all of football (169.2 ypg) ultimately allowed the 49ers to finish second in fewest total yardage surrendered, so you don’t have to wonder what Minnesota is hoping to establish. If they’re successful early in getting Cook going, they could effectively utilize play-action if Cousins can accurately throw downfield. Although his streak of losses in primetime games continued in 2019, he’s enjoyed an effective season and is 9-3 straight up in day games.

Cousins has props of 230.5 passing yards and 1.5 passing touchdowns available at the Westgate Superbook. He’s expected to have his full complement of receivers available with Adam Thielen set to play through an ankle injury. Cook’s rushing yard number was set at 80.5, which is a little risky since the Vikings are likely to mix in rookie Alexander Mattison early in order to ensure Cook will be fresh enough for a final push.

Garoppolo attempted a pass back in the 2014 postseason while winning a Super Bowl as a rookie with the Patriots but will come into this contest looking for his first completion. The Westgate placed his props at 20.5 completions and 1.5 touchdown passes. He’s favored to throw an interception (-145). My free pick here would to ride the ‘under’ on Garoppolo completions. Although there’s danger in him finding George Kittle, Emmanuel Sanders and rookie Deebo Samuel on short routes, he’s only completed more than 20 passes in seven of his 16 outings and did so only twice over the last six weeks.

Minnesota’s pass defense finished 15th, but since the team’s strength lies in their pass rush, it’s likely that 49ers head coach Mike Shanahan employs the run often. Running it early to ensure Garoppolo can settle down makes a first-quarter ‘under’ attractive. Raheem Mostert has emerged as the primary back and figures to get plenty of work to try and neutralize a unit that finished fifth with 48 sacks and picked up 31 takeaways, ranking fourth in the NFL. A red-zone defense that ranked second in the NFL in keeping opponents out of the end zone could also present issues for the Niners. Mostert scored rushing touchdowns in six straight games and is -110 to do so again per the Westgate.

The Vikings come in with a depleted secondary after ruling safety Jayron Kearse out with knee and toe injuries. Corner Mackensie Alexander was unable to come back from a knee injury and had surgery on Thursday. Corner Mike Hughes was lost late in the season and veteran Xavier Rhodes has been picked on, so there could be opportunities if Garoppolo is sharp. San Francisco is much healthier, activating linebacker Kwon Alexander from a torn pectoral, the same injury that had sidelined Houston’s J.J. Watt. Alexander was the heart of the 49ers’ defense before going down. Pass rusher Dee Ford and safety Jaquiski Tartt are also back in the mix for an aggressive unit that excelled most of the season.

San Francisco is 4-1 in the playoffs against the Vikings, with every meeting coming in the divisional playoff round. None of that really matters, but it is worth knowing that the 49ers have only won one of the last five matchups against Minnesota over the past 12 years, last falling in Week 1 of 2018 by a 24-16 score. Garoppolo was intercepted three times despite throwing for 261 yards. Cousins threw for 244 yards and two scores in his first game as the Vikes’ quarterback. San Francisco won the lone meeting at Levi’s back in ’15, rolling 20-3.

The ‘over’ went 8-7-1 in 49ers games this season and went 8-8 in Minnesota’s games. For all “Total Talk” on Saturday’s Divisional playoff action, read Chris David’s piece click here.

Temperatures will be in the 50’s and wind gusts will be minimal in Santa Clara, so weather shouldn’t play a large role. For that reason, I also love the prop requiring both teams to knock down field goals of at least 33 yards to cash at +110 (Westgate) since both teams have accurate kickers and solid red-zone defenses.

Titans at Ravens, 8:15 pm ET, CBS
Betting Odds: Baltimore -10, Total 47

Baltimore (14-2 SU, 11-4-1 ATS) opens its run as Super Bowl favorite, currently 2-to-1 at Caesars, at home in what could be a rainy Saturday night. Upset-minded Tennessee (10-7, 10-7) arrives instead of the Texans, which also means Tom Brady and the Patriots won’t come knocking again.

The Ravens had their coming-out party in Week 9, dominating New England 37-20 after a well-timed bye. As November opened, the AFC still looked like the Patriots Invitational due to an elite defense and the presence of Brady. That game was not only an eye-opener, it sent the teams in completely different directions. Baltimore hasn’t lost since Sept. 29, going 9-2-1 against the spread during its 12-game win streak. Quarterback Lamar Jackson will be named NFL MVP.

The Titans defeated the Patriots in Foxborough last week, clamping down defensively and riding a ground game led by NFL rushing leader Derrick Henry to a 20-13 win that would’ve been a one-point squeaker if not for a Brady pick-six to close the game out. Tennessee has now won and covered six of eight, a stretch that actually includes a perfect mark over four road games. Tennessee’s run began with a home win over Kansas City and includes a Week 17 victory over a Houston team resting starters, so Mike Vrabel’s team will have plenty of confidence if it can survive to play for an AFC Championship on the road next Sunday.

Tennessee’s current Super Bowl odds at Caesars are 35-to-1 and it is currently the lone double-digit underdog playing this weekend unless Houston ends up in that role on Sunday. As of late Friday, the Chiefs were still a 9/9.5-point favorite for Sunday’s matchup with the Texans.

The number for this game opened with the Ravens laying 10 points but that was quickly bet down to nine points, even reaching 8.5 at Circa and FanDuel. Around Tuesday, the action started coming in on Baltimore, pushing the spread to 10 and potentially climbing.

Titans QB Ryan Tannehill won his postseason debut despite having never won at Gillette Stadium coming into this postseason. He’s now 8-3 as the team’s starter. Lamar Jackson will be looking to get on the board after falling his first time out, struggling to get anything going against the Chargers at home in an eventual 23-17 loss in the Wild Card round last year. The Ravens fell behind 12-0 and 23-3 before a pair of late scores. Jackson ran nine times for 54 yards and finished 14-for-29 for 194 yards and the two fourth-quarter TD passes.

He then went to work and became the NFL’s most prolific offensive weapon. Jackson set a league record for a quarterback with 1,206 rushing yards. He threw 36 touchdown passes while Baltimore set a league record with 3,296 rushing yards. After opening the season with a 59-10 rout of Miami, the Ravens barely slowed down. They’ve scored 28 or more points in eight of their last 10 contests and finished with a league-best 531 points (33.2 ppg). This total of 47 is consistent with where oddsmakers have kept Ravens games all season, placing them within three of that number in 12 of their 16 contests. The ‘over’ is 9-7 in Baltimore games.

Jackson has props of 17.5 completions and two passing touchdowns available at the Westgate Superbook. The number set on his rushing prop is 74.5 yards, which is a figure he’s eclipsed in five of his past six games. Despite that, he’s got just one rushing TD over the last six contests. Keep that in mind if you’re enticed by banking on ‘yes’ at a return of +115 (-135 for ‘no’).

By comparison, Henry’s odds of reaching the end zone have been at set at -150, which is still a nice bet considering the Titans are unlikely to get shut out and he’s scored in seven of the last eight games he’s played in. He’s got 13 touchdowns since the beginning of November and looks healthy after taking Week 16 off to rest an ailing hamstring. Henry’s rushing total has been set at 95.5, a figure he’s topped in six of seven after racking up 182 yards at New England last Saturday night. He closed the regular season with 211 yards on 32 carries at Houston. The Ravens finished with the league’s fifth-best run defense, which will definitely make things interesting.

Baltimore’s pass defense finished sixth, while the Titans finished 24th stifling teams through the air. If inclement weather is part of the action, it may not be as easy for Jackson to dissect Tennessee. The 238 yards he passed for against the Browns in Week 17 were his highest output since late September. Tight end Mark Andrews has emerged as his favorite target and should play despite likely being at less than 100 percent with an ankle injury. He’s caught seven of Jackson’s 24 touchdown passes over the past seven weeks and is even money to score on Saturday (‘no’ -120)

Preparing for Jackson is an impossible task, but the Titans have been working against the elusive former No. 2 overall pick Marcus, Mariota to try and replicate what they’re about to face. Tannehill finished 8-for-15 for just 72 yards against the Patriots, so his passing yards number (225.5) is suspiciously high. If you’re of the belief that Baltimore will go up early and the Titans will have to abandon their plans to feed Henry and consume clock, be sure to check and see just how hard the rain is falling as kickoff approaches and get a more accurate forecast for potential in-game showers.

AP notes worth knowing include the Ravens coming in 72-24 at home under Harbaugh throughout his tenure, allowing only 16.8 points per game. Baltimore 14-1 in home primetime games, while Jackson threw 11 TDs with no picks in his three evening games this season.

Mark Ingram (calf) is listed as questionable to play, but the Ravens’ top running back returned to practice on Thursday and is expected to suit up and play. Gus Edwards would be in for an increased workload if Ingram can’t get loose or is ineffective. The Ravens are otherwise healthy and should see Ingram and Edwards gut it out through their usual roles. Tennessee has ruled out linebacker Jayon Brown, who hurt his shoulder against the Patriots. Backup WR Adam Humphries is also sidelined. Corner Adoree Jackson and LB Kamalei Correa will play.

BALTIMORE RAVENS: Running back Mark Ingram (calf) and tight end Mark Andrews (ankle), both Pro Bowl selections, are listed as questionable for Saturday night’s game against visiting Tennessee. But that would appear to be a formality. “It’s been announced that Ingram is playing, and we expect Andrews to play, as well. They’ve basically had three weeks off. No move in the line, because they were expected to play.” Baltimore has stuck at -9.5 since Tuesday.

TENNESSEE TITANS: Wideout Adam Humphries (ankle) is out, as is linebacker Jayon Brown (shoulder). But Osterman said those absences didn’t impact the line at all. The Titans are catching 9.5 at Baltimore in this 8:15 p.m. ET Saturday clash.

MINNESOTA VIKINGS: Wideout Adam Thielen (ankle) is questionable for Saturday’s game at San Francisco. “Thielen is expected to play. He would be worth a half-point if he somehow did not play.” The Vikings are 7-point underdogs.
