The NFL Regular Season is in the books, meaning it’s time for NFL sports betting software providers to turn their attention to the NFL Playoffs.
In 2020, all sports leagues had to deal with the coronavirus pandemic. The NBA, NHL, Champions League, and English Premier League dealt with shutdowns in the middle of their seasons.
All four of those sports leagues finished their seasons unscathed. Three, the NBA, UCL, and EPL, started and continued their new seasons. The National Hockey League starts their new season on January 13.
Like those popular leagues, the NFL had their share of coronavirus hiccups. But unlike the sports above, the National Football League hasn’t canceled a week or any games. Instead, the NFL postponed games to the following week.
What transpired was another exciting pro football season. The top teams in the NFL produced the best records, including the Kansas City Chiefs, New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers, and Pittsburgh Steelers.
The National Football League decided to expand the playoff field to fourteen teams this season. Only two teams, the Chiefs and Packers, get this weekend off. That’s a significant change for pay per head sportsbook bookies.
An expanded playoff field also expands the games and teams that can win the Super Bowl. The NFL Championship market is deeper this year than it’s ever been. Good news for sportsbook software providers? Absolutely!
Before discussing the BossAction pay per head digital platforms, you can use it to ensure action and profit during the NFL Playoffs and on Super Bowl Sunday, check out a brief profile of each playoff team. Your players will look to betting tips to help them determine winners in upcoming NFL competitions. Analysis requires you to know some of the same knowledge your players will acquire.
Super Bowl LV winner will be among these fourteen teams
Kansas City Chiefs
For the defending champions, everything starts and ends with quarterback Patrick Mahomes. Sports betting tips about the Chiefs have been all over the map. The reason? KC failed to cover the spread in seven of their last eight games. To be fair, Kansas City has played as if they want to leave something in the tank for the playoffs. But are we sure that’s the case?
Green Bay Packers
Quarterback Aaron Rodgers should win this year’s MVP. The 36-year-old seemed on the way out after Green Bay drafted Jordan Love in the first round. Rodgers responded this season with 48 touchdown passes, a 70.7 completion percentage, and 4,299 passing yards. Green Bay’s defense stepped it up in the final month of the season. Be wary of Super Bowl bets on the Packers.
The Bills are the hottest team in the NFL. Quarterback Josh Allen has dominated through the air and on the ground. Buffalo’s defense, like Green Bay’s, came together nicely in the final month. The prediction from more than one NFL analyst is that the Bills upset the Chiefs and win the AFC.
New Orleans Saints
Kansas City beat the Saints in Week 15. That sent New Orleans from the top seed to the second-seed. But New Orleans lost that game in Drew Brees’ first back from an injury. Top wide receiver Michael Thomas also sat out due to an injury. Now at full-strength, New Orleans looks like the ultimate competition to Green Bay’s quest for an NFC Championship.
For Pittsburgh, it was a tale of two seasons. In the first half, the Steelers went undefeated. They lost three games in the second half and failed to impress in any one of the victories. Pittsburgh doesn’t look strong heading into the playoffs. In their wildcard game, though, they should win because the Browns, again, suffered COVID positives.
How good are the Seattle Seahawks? It isn’t easy to know. Russell Wilson is excellent, yes, but the Seahawks’ defense ranks last in the league in yards allowed per game. Seattle may get past the Rams in their wildcard game. What happens in the divisional playoffs if they end up facing the Buccaneers or Saints? If they get past Tom Brady and Drew Brees, what happens if they must play the Packers and Aaron Rodgers?
Derrick Henry’s rushing will keep the Titans in playoff games. The biggest issue for Tennessee is on the defensive end. The unit allows 27.4 points per. That won’t cut it in the AFC, where teams like the Ravens, Chiefs, and Bills reside.
Washington Football Team
Washington’s defensive line could help them upset the Buccaneers in their first game. But then the WFT must face Aaron Rodgers and the Packers or Brees and the Saints. At that point, D.C.’s dream of a football championship will end.
The Ravens got hot in the final six weeks of the regular season. As long as Lamar Jackson and Baltimore don’t meet Kansas City in the playoffs, the Ravens can win the Super Bowl. They’re good enough for sure, but it’s difficult to understand why the Chiefs have Baltimore’s number.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Larger betting sites fear the Tampa Bay Buccaneers more than any other team in the playoffs. Led by six-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback Tom Brady, the Buccaneers appear primed for a long playoff run. Brady is the x-factor. Terrific Tom must deal with a fantastic defensive line led by Montez Sweat and Chase Young in their first playoff game, though.
Baker Mayfield, Myles Garrett, and Nick Chubb provided a three-headed monster Cleveland squad that is good enough to upset the Steelers for the second time in the past couple of weeks. The problem Cleveland faces is that, again, they came up with coronavirus positives. Head coach Kevin Stefanski is among the positives. Also, left-tackle Jedrick Willis Jr. and Rashard Higgins, both starters, were caught drag racing after the win over the Steelers. The Browns can’t get out of their own way.
Los Angeles Rams
The Rams boast the first-ranked defense in total yards allowed, passing yards allowed, and points allowed per game. Los Angeles may not start Jared Goff at quarterback in their game against Seattle, though. Even if Goff starts, he failed to inspire confidence this season. As long as Aaron Donald and Jalen Ramsey play on the defensive side, the Los Angeles Rams will have a shot to win football games. But if you can’t score, you can’t win, which makes it hard to see Los Angeles beating the Bucs, Saints, or Packers if they get past Seattle.
Indianapolis has a great defense and a decent rushing attack. But the Colts face Buffalo in their first playoff game. Indianapolis won’t beat the Bills unless Buffalo implodes. Expect an early playoff exit for the Colts.
Chicago must face the New Orleans Saints in their first playoff game. Mitch Trubisky, the Bears’ starting quarterback, threw eight interceptions this season, including a pick in each of Chicago’s final three games. The Saints’ defense ranked first in interceptions this season with 18. New Orleans turnover differential is +9, which ranks third in the NFL. Chicago has almost no shot of beating the Saints in their wildcard match.
