NFL Divisional Round Recap
The NFL Divisional Round has concluded, which means it’s almost time for the conference championships. The 2021-22 Divisional Round was probably the greatest weekend of football of all time. Three underdogs went on the road and won outright. Additionally, all the game came down to walk-off plays.
I am sure you are ready to bet on the AFC and NFC Championship Games. However, before we start game planning, let’s take a look back at the greatest weekend of playoff football ever.
The Tennessee Titans entered the playoffs as the first seed in the AFC. Although, they received little respect in the postseason future markets. The first seed is a huge advantage, but Tennessee was the fifth likely to win in Vegas.
Vegas was not wrong as the Titans were bounced in the first round. Joe Burrow and the Bengals took care of business on the road. Cincinnati forced Tennessee to throw the ball by shutting down Derrick Henry.
This resulted in a Bengals win and cover. Cincinnati entered the game as four-point dogs, and they left Nissan Stadium as 19-16 victors. They won on a game-winning field goal that was set up from a Tannehill interception.
The game also stayed under the 49 point total and the Bengals winning money line was +170.
I do not think the Bengals are getting the full credit of what they did vs Titans. Bengals lead the game for over 80% of the game. I think this is something people are missing the and the score is not telling the full truth of what the Bengals did to the Titans.
