NFL Wild Card Weekend Schedule: Saturday

In their last two meetings this season, the 49ers won over the Seahawks with a total score of 48-20. All eyes will be on Brock Purdy to deliver, and the Seahawks will need to prevent Purdy from throwing if they want to win.
At 8:15 PM ET, the Chargers will be at the Jaguars, with the Chargers as favorites at -2.5. This will be a very exciting game for bettors as we will be seeing both Justin Herbert and Trevor Lawrence debut in the playoffs as starters. It’s a toss on who will win, and with a betting margin so narrow, it will definitely be a very interesting game.
Wild Card Sunday
On Sunday at 1:00 PM ET, The Dolphins will play at the Bills. The Dolphins are in a bit of a pickle here, as some of their most important players for this point in the season are out. But you do have Skylar Thompson eager to start and show us his skills. Of course, the Dolphins will have a better chance in winning if more in the roster will perform well.
In the afternoon, the Giants will be facing the Vikings at 4:30 PM ET. Both teams have rookie coaches. And, both of them have managed to lead their respective teams to perform better this season. For bettors though, its best to note that New York has been 13-4 ATS this season, with 7-1 ATS on the road.
In the evening, you have the Ravens facing the Bengals at 8:15 PM ET, and the Bengals are looking to get as close as they can go in the postseason. If the Ravens want to beat the Bengals, they will definitely have to perform well defensively. And if you are going to open a sportsbook, do so before the weekend games start because this game will be worth betting on.
Wild Card Monday
The last game in the Wild Card Weekend is as high-profile as you can get. The Cowboys will be at the Buccaneers at 8:15 PM ET where we will see two powerhouse teams face off in the last game of the round. While the Buccaneers have Tom Brady, the Cowboys have enough star power and strategy to beat the Bucs. Betting wise, the Bucs are the worst in the league 4-12-1 ATS this season.
