A sports betting guide to the NFL Playoffs Wild Card Round

A sports betting guide to the NFL Playoffs Wild Card Round

 

The NFL Playoffs are here, and like usual, it's bittersweet. On one hand, it means football is almost over. It always seems to go by so fast, doesn't it? 

But on the other hand, these are the games that really matter. These are the games we play the entire season to see. The NFL is the only one of the four major professional sports to have a one-and-done playoff, and it makes every game feel incredibly intense. There are no second chances. It's do-or-die. Peak drama. 

And from a sports betting perspective? Three standalone games on Saturday and Sunday, all featuring quality football teams and fascinating matchups is the perfect way to kick off the beginning of the end of the NFL season. The following is a full sports betting breakdown of the NFL Playoffs Wild Card round, including when and how to watch games, sports betting odds, and key player props for each game. 

All odds and player props can be found on the Wager Champs website as part of the free January public contest.
