    Divisional Round best bets and picks against the spread

    The NFL is down to its final eight teams, which means we're running out of opportunities to bet on the league this season. Michael Beller and Vic Tafur have you covered on this week's precious few games with our latest episode of The Athletic Football Show.
    Can the Rams keep rolling, or will Aaron Rodgers and the Packers cover the 6.5-point spread. Who comes away with the win and cover in Ravens-Bills? Can the Browns at least keep things close against the Chiefs? And can the Saints topple the Buccaneers for the third time this season, covering in the process? Or does Tom Brady have some more playoff magic in his arm? The guys answer all those questions, and offer up their favorite bets of the weekend.
