NFL expert picks, best bets for Divisional Round: 4-team playoff football parlay
SportsLine's top NFL experts give their top picks for the NFL Playoffs Divisional Round
Just eight teams remain in the NFL Playoffs, and SportsLine's top experts are picking each game to make this weekend a memorable one. If you're feeling truly bold for the divisional round, they're putting together a four-team parlay that could return a massive 10-to-1 payout. If you bet $100, it would return $1,000.
To pull this off, SportsLine is utilizing its hottest NFL experts to make picks in the areas that they know best. It's an All-Star cast that includes some of the top handicapping experts in the nation.
Here's the lineup: Josh Nagel picks Falcons-Eagles (7-2 in last nine Eagles games, 13-4 on NFL picks overall), Galin Dragiev selects both AFC matchups (14-2 NFL run), and R.J. White picks Saints-Vikings (9-1 on last 10 Vikings picks).
We'll give one key part of the parlay away: Dragiev is expecting the Patriots to take care of business in a big way and cover a 13.5-point spread against the visiting Titans.
Tennessee showed its mettle by holding off Jacksonville in Week 17 to sneak into the playoffs and then knocked off the Chiefs at Arrowhead in dramatic fashion, 22-21.
Derrick Henry rushed for 156 yards and a TD on 23 carries in that one, and with DeMarco Murray already ruled out of Saturday's showdown in Foxboro, it will be Henry again leading the way.
But the Titans' offense has been inconsistent getting the ball into the end zone. While the unit ranks No. 1 in the NFL in yards gained (397 per game), it is just 18th in scoring (20.9).
Scoring is not the issue for a New England squad that is No. 2 at 28.6 ppg. The Patriots' passing game also ranks No. 2 with 276.1 yards per game. While the Titans possess the fourth-best run defense in the league, they're only 25th against the pass.
Dragiev also believes the off-the-field drama surrounding the Jimmy Garoppolo trade will motivate New England to make a big statement on Saturday night.
