Corrigan’s Gambling Corner: NFL Divisional Roundby Daniel Corrigan January 16, 2021 0 comments
It is hard to believe that there are only seven games left in the Football season. It certainly has been an interesting season, that’s for sure. Anyway, it’s time to sit back, watch some great matchups, and win some money.

2021 Record: 9-6-1
Best Bet (Saturday): Packers (-6.5)
The Rams are in a weird spot. Jared Goff is starting, but that may actually be a bad thing. With John Wolford getting knocked out of the Wild Card game against Seattle, the Rams were forced to turn back to Goff, who was available but recovering from thumb surgery. On the other hand, the Packers are enjoying the best season of Aaron Rodgers‘ career. If the Rams have any shot in this game, they need Jalen Ramsey to lock-down Davante Adams. unfortunately for the Rams, no one has been able to do that all year. On the road, with a hurt quarterback and no real offensive identity, the Packers will win by more than a touchdown.
Best Bet (Sunday): Browns (+10)
I’m not convinced that the Browns won’t win this game straight up. They will be getting back Denzel Ward, Joel Bitonio, and Head coach, Kevin Stefanski. In this matchup, the road team is 5-1 ATS and the Browns are 5-2 ATS in their last seven against the Chiefs. If the Browns want to win this game, they will need to attack the Chiefs’ run defense, which ranks 21st in the league with Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt. The Browns are averaging 148.4 yards per game on the ground, which is good for 3rd in the league. The name of the game is simple for the Browns. Run the ball, and keep Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs offense off the field.
