It’s the most wonderful time of year for football fans.

The road to the Super Bowl starts with Super Wild Card Weekend. Six games over three days will decide who advances to the Divisional Round and who goes home.

Here’s a look at the NFL Wild Card odds.

NFL Wild Card Odds & Betting Lines

All NFL betting odds cited below are current as of Monday, Jan. 8, and courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Cleveland Browns @ Houston Texans

Saturday, Jan. 13, 4:30 p.m. ET

  • Moneyline: Browns (-135) @ Texans (+114)
  • Spread: Browns -2.5 (-112) @ Texans +2.5 (-108)
  • Over/Under: Over 44 (-108) / Under 44 (-112)

The Houston Texans had the longest preseason Super Bowl odds yet find themselves hosting a playoff game after surprisingly winning the AFC South.

The Cleveland Browns, led by a great defense and Super Bowl-winning quarterback Joe Flacco, look like a trendy dark horse in the wide-open AFC.

Miami Dolphins @ Kansas City Chiefs

Saturday, Jan. 13, 8 p.m. ET

  • Moneyline: Dolphins (+142) @ Chiefs (-170)
  • Spread: Dolphins +3.5 (-112) @ Chiefs -3.5 (-108)
  • Over/Under: Over 42.5 (-110) / Under 42.5 (-110)

Patrick Mahomes will start his 13th straight home AFC playoff game and boasts a 10-2 record at Arrowhead Stadium in the postseason. But, to advance, the Kansas City Chiefs will need to knock off Tyreek Hill, Tua Tagovailoa, and the Miami Dolphins.

Miami, which is 2-3 in its past five and lost 21-14 to the Chiefs in Frankfurt, Germany, on Nov. 5, hasn’t won a postseason game since 2000.

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Buffalo Bills

Sunday, Jan. 14, 1 p.m. ET

  • Moneyline: Steelers (+340) @ Bills (-440)
  • Spread: Steelers +10 (-110) @ Bills -10 (-110)
  • Over/Under: Over 37.5 (-110) / Under 37.5 (-110)

The Buffalo Bills are rolling into the postseason with five straight wins and six in their past seven.

Buffalo is looking dangerous and should take care of the Pittsburgh Steelers, who may be without NFL sack leader T.J. Watt after he suffered a knee injury in the Steelers’ Week 18 win over the Baltimore Ravens.

Green Bay Packers @ Dallas Cowboys

Sunday, Jan. 14, 4:30 p.m. ET

  • Moneyline: Packers (+270) @ Cowboys (-340)
  • Spread: Packers +7.5 (-115) @ Cowboys -7.5 (-105)
  • Over/Under: Over 49.5 (-110) / Under 49.5 (-110)

The Dallas Cowboys won the NFC East and enter the playoffs riding a 16-game home winning streak that began in Week 2 of the 2022 season.

But Jordan Love and the Green Bay Packers look dangerous, having won three straight and boasting a 6-2 record in their past eight games.

Los Angeles Rams @ Detroit Lions

Sunday, Jan. 14, 8 p.m. ET

  • Moneyline: Rams (+145) @ Lions (-175)
  • Spread: Rams +3 (-105) @ Lions -3 (-115)
  • Over/Under: Over 51.5 (-110) / Under 51.5 (-110)

The Detroit Lions’ first home playoff game in 30 years will come against a familiar foe in longtime Detroit QB Matthew Stafford.

Stafford, who won Super Bowl LVI with the Los Angeles Rams after Detroit traded him to L.A., will play his first game at Ford Field as an opponent with a berth in the Divisional Round on the line.

Philadelphia Eagles @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Monday, Jan. 15, 8:15 p.m. ET

  • Moneyline: Eagles (-142) @ Buccaneers (+120)
  • Spread: Eagles -2.5 (-120) @ Buccaneers +2.5 (+100)
  • Over/Under: Over 44 (-110) / Under 44 (-110)

The Philadelphia Eagles are 1-5 in their past six games yet enter the playoffs with the third-shortest odds to win the NFC. They have also already beaten the Buccaneers this season, defeating Tampa Bay 25-11 in Week 3.

Still, quarterback Jalen Hurts has lost a postseason game to the Bucs before and may struggle while dealing with a dislocated finger.

Tampa Bay has lost consecutive home playoff games, including a Monday night defeat to the Cowboys on Wild Card Weekend 2023.
