With a trip to Super Bowl LI on the line, two surging teams will hook-up in Foxborough as the New England Patriots will look to add to a trend that’s seen them go 25-8-3 ATS in their last 36 home games. Awaiting them is their stiffest test of the season in the Pittsburgh Steelers who will look to add another W to their eight-game win streak.

By the end of the evening, we’ll know how the conference championships shape up. Here’s a look at how I see today’s action playing out:
Green Bay at Dallas -5.5, 52.5
The Green Bay Packers ride a 7-game winning streak into this one during which they are 6-1 against the spread. It’s not often you find a team so scorching hot approaching touchdown underdog status up against a rookie quarterback.
But Dallas was the team to beat in the NFC for most of the season and Dak Prescott seems to have forgotten that rookies aren’t supposed to light the league on fire.
Judging by the small point spread, the Kansas City Chiefs-Pittsburgh Steelers prime-time contest could very well be the closest game on the docket in divisional round play according to oddsmakers.
Ben Roethlisberger and the Steelers are coming off a 30-12 trouncing of the Miami Dolphins on Wild Card Weekend, while the Chiefs will be fully rested after earning a first-round bye. Books opened the black and gold as 1-point underdogs for the tilt.
Entering the divisional round, you're likely in one of these two situations:
1. You've been humiliating bookies all season, and hopefully, you've put a few out of business and destroyed their lives by now.
2. The bookies have been humiliating you all season, forcing you to cut down on buying brand-name foods, instead opting for the lame grocery store brand. They tell us it's the same, but let's not kid ourselves.
When betting the NFL's divisional round, don’t just focus on sides and totals. There are tons of opportunities for football bettors to get some side action in if you look in the right places.

By most accounts, the NFL wild-card round was extremely disappointing. All four home favorites won convincingly and no game was close for longer than a quarter or two.
