Vikings, Titans Underdogs on Saturday NFL Playoff Odds

The Vikings face the 49ers in the Divisional Round. Bet on the action at the Bovada Sportsbook.

The Minnesota Vikings will be aiming to punch their ticket to their second NFC Championship Game in three years when they visit the San Francisco 49ers on Saturday as big 7-point underdogs on the NFL betting odds.

Minnesota pulled off one of two stunning Wild Card Weekend upsets with a 26-20 overtime win over the New Orleans Saints, and has posted straight-up wins in three of four road contests going into Saturday afternoon’s matchup at Levi’s Stadium.

Plagued by injuries, the Vikings struggled down the stretch, losing outright to Chicago and Green Bay in their final two home contests. But the Minnesota offense rebounded in the team’s victory over the Saints last weekend as 7.5-point road underdogs on the NFL odds, and has now averaged over 30 points per game over their past seven road dates.

The 49ers return to the NFL playoffs following a five-year absence riding a two-game SU win streak, capped by a 26-21 win over Seattle in Week 17 that clinched the NFC West title and top seeding in the NFC. San Francisco has been rewarded on the Super Bowl odds for its return to respectability and impressive 13-3 SU campaign, currently trailing only the Baltimore Ravens as a strong +300 second favorite.

However, the Niners have some work to do to overcome their recent shaky record against Minnesota. San Francisco has posted wins in just two of eight meetings with the Vikings while averaging a meagre 12 points per game in three home clashes during that stretch.

 

Titans are Double-Digit Underdogs Facing the Ravens

 

Later on Saturday, the Tennessee Titans will be looking to build on last weekend’s 20-13 upset victory over the New England Patriots as they visit the soaring Baltimore Ravens as 10-point underdogs on the NFL lines.

With rusher Derrick Henry carrying the load, the Titans marched to their fourth straight victory on the road. The NFL’s leading rusher during this NFL football season, Henry accounted for 204 of Tennessee’s 272 total yards, and scampered for the game-winning score. However, with the Titans lagging at a distant +2000 on the Super Bowl odds, Henry sits well off the pace as a +5000 wager to claim this year’s Super Bowl MVP honors in NFL betting.

Overall, the Titans have averaged a respectable 32 points per game during their four-game SU win streak, and have also rewarded bettors with ATS wins in each of those contests. And with last weekend’s victory over the defending champion Patriots, Tennessee has now won outright on three occasions this season while pegged as a betting underdog on the road.

The Ravens return to action riding a franchise-record 12-game SU win streak that has featured nine victories by double-digit margins. Not surprisingly, Baltimore has been a steady bet of late, covering the NFL spread in nine of 10 contests, and sits perched as a strong +185 favorite on the Super Bowl odds. In addition, the Ravens dominate the odds to win the AFC conference title, and are pegged as heavy -140 chalk to make their first Super Bowl appearance since 2012.
