NFL Week 3 Playoffs Tips & Previews, Wednesday 25th January

It's Conference Championships Weekend and a massive day of NFL football is here. BetDeluxe looks at both games to find the best bets.

The Divisional Round playoffs came and went with only a few surprises, and we’re now left with the four best teams in the NFL competing for a trip to the Super Bowl.

Philadelphia, Kansas City and San Francisco all claimed home victories, while the Bengals were unstoppable on a wintry day in Buffalo.

It sets the scene for an incredible day of conference championship action, and BetDeluxe has looked at each team’s chances.

Philadelphia vs. San Francisco

30th January 7:00am

If there were any lingering concerns about the Eagles’ playoff credentials, they were emphatically put to bed on Sunday with a 38-7 demolition of the New York Giants.

The NFC’s No. 1 seed was clinical from the outset and put the result beyond doubt with a 28-0 opening half. Jalen Hurts rushed for his 14th TD of the season among his game-high three and tied Cam Newton for the most by a quarterback in a single season. Most impressively, the Eagles rushed for 268 yards, the second-most in postseason history. Defensively, Philly kept both Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley scoreless.

Overall, they couldn’t have been any more impressive, and they’ve now shortened to $1.66 in this game and Super Bowl favouritism.

As for the 49ers, they earned a second straight trip to the Conference Championships with a 19-12 victory over the Dallas Cowboys. While rookie QB Brock Purdy failed to throw a TD, it mattered little as the 49er’s defense kept the Cowboys’ to just one touchdown. Despite his quieter game, Purdy’s fantastic debut season continues as he is now 7-0 as a starter and the fifth rookie QB to start a conference championship.

It’s long been acknowledged that defense wins championships, and the 49ers will pray this holds true as they search for a 13th consecutive win.

Suggested Bet – Same Game Multi
Leg 1: Eagles to win
Leg 2: Over 46.5 total points
Leg 3: C. McCaffery to score anytime
Leg 4: J. Hurts 2+ passing TDs

Total: $6.50

Kansas City vs. Cincinnati

30th January 10:30am

The week off did little to slow the momentum of the Kansas City Chiefs as they defeated Jacksonville 27-20 in their divisional playoff.

Led by Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce’s two TDs, the Chiefs led by seven points at the half and maintained the ascendancy throughout the remainder of the match. Hearts would have been in the mouths of all Chiefs fans when Mahomes sprained his ankle early in the game, but he returned to finish off the job and maintains that he’ll be ready to go on Monday.

The Bengals firmed in the market and will now enter as favourites after their dominant 27-10 triumph over the Bills.

Joe Burrow was unstoppable at QB, throwing for 242 yards and two TDs. He found Ja’Marr Chase and Hayden Hurst at different times, while Joe Mixon had 20 carries for 105 yards and a TD. Burrow is the man the Chiefs will want to target, having beaten Mahomes three times in as many tries.

This is arguably the best game of the championships, with the overall feeling that the winner will likely go all the way.

Suggested Bet – Same Game Multi
Leg 1: Bengals to win
Leg 2: J. Burrow over 254.5 passing yards
Leg 3: Over 46.5 total points
Leg 4: T. Kelce over 74.5 receiving yards

Total: $6.50
