NFL Divisional Round: Betting, DFS, Breakdowns, Matchups and More

The NFL is down to its final eight teams. With three of the four remaining in the NFC all representing the same division, could we see an all-NFC East Conference Championship Game if the Cowboys defeat the 49ers, and face the winner of Giants-Eagles?

Over in the AFC, it’s all chalk as each division champion advanced to the Divisional Round. Does Jacksonville have what it takes to upset top-seed Kansas City? And with the Bengals and Bills meeting again after their Week 17 contest was canceled, which team will win that highly anticipated showdown?

And with 24 other teams focused squarely on April’s NFL Draft, which organizations are lining up as potential fits for some of the draft’s top prospects?

As we get set for this weekend’s Divisional Round matchups, The 33rd Team’s experts — with more than 1,000 years of NFL coaching, playing and executive experience — break down all of those questions and much more, including fantasy, DFS and betting analysis from some of the industry’s best.
