Ariel Epstein and Jared Quay give their instant blind reactions to NFL lines for the Divisional Round.

Video Transcript

- The Wild Card round is almost complete. And we've already got our blind reactions for the divisional round in 3, 2, 1.

- Bengals at Titans, Titans minus 3 and 1/2.

- I've got to lay the points with the Tennessee Titans. The Titans are the better team, the better offense. And I'm not buying Cincinnati and Joe Burrow's defense. Not that it has anything to do with their quarterback, the defense is going to get torn up, especially with the Titans getting their running back Derrick Henry back. Too many weapons. I take the better defense in the game. That's Tennessee.

- I'm on the opposite end here. I don't know why. I mean, yes, they are first seed in the AFC. They got the bye. They should be favored. I just think this Bengals team is much better. I do think that the Titans have Derrick Henry coming back, which is going to be a problem. But the Bengals are fourth in the NFL in run stop defense.

And you add that with the fact that I think Ja'Marr Chase and Joe Burrow are just clicking right now. Joe Burrow's a winner when it comes to big games. I mean, he did it in college. And he's doing it in the pros. So with that being the case, I like the Bengals on the moneyline.

- Another Saturday game, the 49ers are at the Green Bay Packers. The Packers are a 5 and 1/2 point home favorite.

- Oh, the Niners surprised me when they beat the Cowboys. I do think they're playing a lot better than people expected them to. But you just can't go against a team. Green Bay is going to go at home in that cold weather with Aaron Rodgers with a mission, I just can't bet against them. So give me 5 and 1/2. Give me the points.

- I'm on the other side here. I'm laying the points with the Green Bay Packers. This team has been so good at home. They have led the league in scoring this season. And when you look at what the 49ers have done, I've bet on them for the last two weeks. I took them against Dallas. I took them in week 18. I'm done, no more. The thumb's going to fall off. No more Jimmy G. This team is done. They're stopping their season in Lambeau Field.

- Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs, Chiefs minus 2 and 1/2.

- I've already taken two favorites. I'm going with the dog. The Buffalo Bills are my Super Bowl pick at 12 to 1 from the preseason. I can't back off them now. Their quarterback Josh Allen looked incredible in the Wild Card game, as if no one could stop him. The Patriots allowed one of the least points per game this season to opponents, and the Bills had one of the best offensive performances ever in the playoffs. Give me the points and the Bills in Arrowhead.

- Argh! This game is tough. Whatever I'm saying, go the opposite, because I don't know, all right? The Bills already beat the Chiefs once this year in Arrowhead. But I just don't think you can do that twice. I think they got Chris Jones back. And this team's offense looked alive last week. So with that being the case, I'm going to go Chiefs at home to win by a field goal.
