The Daily Sweat: What you need to know to bet the Raiders and Bengals and Patriots and Bills
The enlarged Wild Card weekend gets underway on Saturday when the Las Vegas Raiders visit the Cincinnati Bengals (4:30 p.m. ET, NBC) before the Buffalo Bills host the New England Patriots (8:15 p.m. ET, CBS). The basics: the Bengals are favored by 5.5 points and the total is 49. If you want to place a moneyline bet on Cincinnati, the Bengals are -250 to win straight up while a Raiders upset is +200. The Raiders enter the playoffs on a four-game win streak, though its biggest margin of victory during that stretch is four points. If the Raiders do pull the upset, it’s probably going to be a close game.
