Indianapolis Colts vs. Kansas City Chiefs -5½

The first of the two AFC Divisional Round playoff games features a battle of two top young franchise QBs. Andrew Luck leads the Indianapolis Colts into Kansas City to face Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs.
Indy arrives at Arrowhead with a 9-7-1 ATS record this season. That includes the Colts Wild Card win at Houston over the Texans. On the road, Indianapolis is 6-3 ATS, and as an underdog, the Colts are 4-4 ATS.
With Patrick Mahomes taking over under center in his sophomore season, Kansas City opened the season with five straight wins. Four of those wins were by double digits. The first three wins of the season were all ATS covers as well. But then the Chiefs cooled down against the spread going 1-4 ATS their final five home games and covering just once in their last seven.

Philadelphia Eagles vs. New Orleans Saints -8
Sun. Jan. 13, 4:40 p.m. ET (FOX)
Back in November, the 7-point favorite New Orleans Saints buried the visiting Philadelphia Eagles 48-7. However, this is a different Eagles team visiting. Philly has their mojo back after winning four straight win-or-go-home games. Back in November, it was Carson Wentz under center for the Eagles. This week it will be Nick Foles who has won 9 straight December, January, February games. And this is not the same Saints team. New Orleans is 1-4 ATS in their last five games. Plus the starters haven’t seen action since Week 16. Can the Eagles come out of the gate with a couple of quick scores before the Saints shake off the rust?
