Baltimore Ravens DFS Spin

Lamar Jackson completed 17-of-24 pass attempts for 179 yards and an interception in the Ravens' Wild Card win over the Titans, adding 16 carries for 136 yards and a touchdown. Jackson opened the game with a duck on a deep attempt that was intercepted and things began to look like a repeat of his previous two meetings with the Titans, both of which Baltimore lost. He tightened up his passing but it was his rushing output that won the Ravens this game. Jackson got the Ravens their first score of the day with a 48-yard rushing touchdown. He also added carries for 23 and 33 yards in the second half. It may not have been his best performance through the air but it didn't have to be with the way he was blowing by defenders on the ground. The Ravens will move on to face either the Bills or the Chiefs in the Divisional Round. Jackson remains an elite DFS option for next week.

Buffalo Bills DFS Spin

Josh Allen completed 26-of-35 passes for 324 yards and two touchdowns in the Bills' 27-24 Wild Card Weekend in against the Colts, adding 11 rushes for 54 yards and a touchdown. Allen started slow but picked apart the Colts' secondary through much of the second half. He had a handful of designed runs -- including a beautifully executed read-option touchdown run at the goal line -- in Buffalo's first postseason victory since the first Clinton administration. Allen demonstrated his arm strength and willingness to take chances on several first half throws, proving unstoppable with Stefon Diggs once again wrecking an opposing secondary. Allen will look to continue gunslinging his way toward a Super Bowl next week in the Divisional Round.

Ravens vs. Bills Betting Prediction

The home team is 6-2 against the spread in the last eight meetings between these two teams while Buffalo has covered in eight of its last nine games overall. The Bills are also 5-1 against the spread in their last six conference games, are 4-1 against the number in their last five home games and have cashed in six of their last eight games as a home favorite. The Bills are also 5-2 against the spread in their last seven games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game and with the number sitting just under a field goal, I love the value with one of the hotter teams in the NFL.
