Detroit Lions vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers (Sunday, Jan 21st)

The Detroit Lions have been riding a wave of success, securing victory in their last three outings. Despite a slight stumble against the Rams after an initial 14-3 lead in the first quarter, the Lions have showcased a resilient performance. Their offensive line has been a key strength, ranking an impressive fifth in PFF pass-blocking grade and allowing only 7 sacks throughout the season. Their recent playoff triumph, ending a 32-year drought, has injected them with confidence and fueled aspirations for a deep playoff run.

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers, on the other hand, come into this matchup having demonstrated dominance in the Wild Card round by overcoming the Eagles against the odds on their home turf. Quarterback Baker Mayfield leads the Buccaneers and after a stellar performance against the Eagles with 337 yards and 3 touchdowns. Notably, Mayfield showcased excellent ball distribution, involving five different players who each recorded at least 45 receiving yards. As both teams gear up for the Divisional Round, Ford Field becomes the focal point for what promises to be a captivating and unpredictable matchup.

Predicting the outcome of this clash remains challenging, but with the Lions enjoying the advantage of playing in their home stadium, the odds may tilt in their favour for a victorious outcome.

My pick: The Detroit Lions with a -6.5 point spread (-110 at BetOBet).
