Thomas Casale ($1,508)

Season record: 14-8-2, +508

Houston Texans at Kansas City Chiefs (-10)

Pick: Texans +10 ($75)

I anticipate that the Chiefs and Ravens will duke it out next week for a trip to the Super Bowl, but 10 points seem like too many here, especially considering Houston already won in Kansas City this season. The Chiefs' biggest weakness is a rush defense that allowed 4.9 yards per attempt this year. The Texans exploited that soft run D in Week 6 by gaining 192 yards on the ground in a 31-24 road upset.

Report: Broncos expected to hire ex-Giants HC Shurmur as OC

  Report: Broncos expected to hire ex-Giants HC Shurmur as OC The Denver Broncos have moved quickly to replace fired offensive coordinator Rich Scangarello. Former New York Giants head coach Pat Shurmur is expected to take the role in Denver, though the deal is still to be completed, sources told Mike Garafolo and Ian Rapoport of NFL Network.Denver announced Sunday that Scangarello would be fired after just one season. The Broncos struggled on offense for much of 2019 before a late switch to rookie quarterback Drew Lock. The AFC West team won four of its last five games with Lock under center and averaged 21.4 points per contest.

Both teams are different now, but the big point spread is an overreaction to recent results. The Chiefs' defense may be improved, but it also faced some punchless offenses over the last month of the regular season. The Texans are a step up in class, and considering the road team has won three of the last four outright in this series, I'll grab them to stay within 10 points on Sunday.

Houston Texans at Kansas City Chiefs (-10)

Pick: Chiefs team total over 28.5 ($50)

The Chiefs weren't stymied by the Texans' defense in the earlier meeting this season. Despite losing at home and scoring just seven points in the second half, Kansas City averaged 6.6 yards per play. The problem was that KC's offense only possessed the ball for roughly one-third of the game, as Houston successfully played keep-away.

Carroll: Lynch 'to play more' against Packers

  Carroll: Lynch 'to play more' against Packers The Green Bay Packers will be dealing with an extra dose of Beast Mode during Sunday's divisional-round game, according to Seattle Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll. Running back Marshawn Lynch was eased back into action during Week 17 and the wild-card round, with the veteran serving as the backup to rookie Travis Homer. But with the rust firmly shaken off, Lynch will apparently be a big part of the Seahawks' gameplan. "He's going to play moreRunning back Marshawn Lynch was eased back into action during Week 17 and the wild-card round, with the veteran serving as the backup to rookie Travis Homer.

NFL Divisional Playoffs Saturday Odds, Best Bets . The Chiefs will kick off this weekend's Divisional Playoffs action on Saturday as consensus 5.5-point home favorites on the NFL odds at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com hosting the Indianapolis Colts (11-6).

Where does the betting value lie in the NFL divisional round games this weekend? Chalk's NFL Vegas experts gather to give their best bets on every remaining game.

Now that the Chiefs finally have a defense, I don't think you'll see the Texans control the clock as effectively. And with extra time for head coach Andy Reid and quarterback Patrick Mahomes to prepare for a Houston defense I'm still quite low on, Kansas City should be able to name the score at Arrowhead.

Alex Moretto ($925)

Season record: 18-19-1, -$75

Minnesota Vikings at San Francisco 49ers (-7)

I've been a lot higher on the Vikings this season than most, and I still think they feature one of the most underrated rosters in the NFL. That being said, this is a brutal matchup for them. The Vikings are not built to face a team like the 49ers, who play great defense and excel at getting after the quarterback. San Francisco's D will also get a massive boost with Kwon Alexander, Dee Ford, and Jaquiski Tartt all set to return from injury. That trio last took the field together on Oct. 31 when the 49ers were 8-0 and owned the league’s most dominant defense.

Texans-KC set NFL playoff record with 52 points in 1st half

  Texans-KC set NFL playoff record with 52 points in 1st half KANSAS CITY, Mo. — The Texans and Chiefs set a post-season record for combined points in the first half on Sunday when the Chiefs rallied from a 24-0 first-quarter deficit to take a 28-24 lead into the locker room. The 52 points eclipsed the 49 set by the New Orleans Saints and Arizona Cardinals in the divisional round on Jan. 16, 2010. It fell just short of 56 points for any half, set by the Cardinals and Green Bay Packers in the wild-card round a week earlier.The Texans missed a chance to make it 28-27 when Ka'imi Fairbairn missed a 51-yard field-goal attempt on the final play of the half.

With the NFL Divisional Round starting Saturday, we're buckeling down and finding the best betting strategies going into the four-game weekend, including Dalvin Cook's strong performances on the ground against the NFL 's top teams. These are the NFL bets you need to make.

Meanwhile, San Francisco boasts the league's second-best rushing attack and should be able to gash a Vikings defense that padded its stats against weaker opponents this season but allowed a troubling 5.8 yards per rush against playoff teams. Look for Minnesota to get into an early hole, forcing the offense to abandon the run, which will allow Nick Bosa and Co. to tee off on Kirk Cousins. At that point, it could get ugly.

Pick: 49ers -7 ($100)

C Jackson Cowart ($776)

Season record: 17-18-3, -$224

Minnesota Vikings at San Francisco 49ers (-7)

Last week, I wasn't convinced there was much of a talent or coaching gap between the Vikings and Saints. I feel the same this week with the Vikings set to face the 49ers, whose run-predicated offense could be in for some tough sledding against Minnesota's strong rush defense. San Francisco has struggled in this spot, going just 5-14-1 ATS as a home favorite over its last 20 games. Give me a touchdown all day long with a small shot on the moneyline.

Picks: Vikings +7 ($75), Vikings +260 ($25)
