2024 Bookies Battle Playoffs: Results for NFL Wild Card Round

The NFL Wild Card Round is complete, and unfortunately, it wasn’t the most thrilling experience for football fans with multiple blowouts. However, one of our contestants in Gaming Today’s Bookies Battle still had a great experience by nearly completing a sweep of victories.

Here are the final scores and results with our contest spreads:

  • Texans 45, Browns 14 (HOU +2.5)
  • Chiefs 26, Dolphins 7 (KC -3.5)
  • Packers 48, Cowboys 32 (GB +7.5)
  • Lions 24, Rams 23 (LAR +3.5)
  • Bills 31, Steelers 17 (BUF -10)
  • Buccaneers 32, Eagles 9 (TB +2.5)

Scott Gringauz (Circa) picked the first five Wild Card games correctly. The lone exception was the Monday night game between the Philadelphia Eagles and Tampa Bay Buccaneers. That was one of three games split down the middle across our 11 bookies.

That contestant will lead the clubhouse heading into the Divisional Round. Let’s explain how the rest of the bookies did and how they’re positioned for the $2,000 award.

Reviewing the Bookies Battle Wild Card Results

Let’s look at the full standings for all the bookies in the NFL playoffs (click to enlarge on mobile). Once again, Scott is alone in first place with a 5-1 record.

Standings for the 2024 Bookies Battle playoff after the NFL Wild Card round

Plenty of contestants are still in the running with six players tying with a 4-2 record. This includes Atif Chaudry (Penn Interactive), one of our quarterly winners. Those two losses were also taking the Eagles on Monday night and taking the points with the Steelers in Buffalo.

Duane Colucci (Rampart Casino), who has already taken half of the $8,000 purse, struggles out of the gate with a 1-5 start. After going with the upset in Houston and winning that pick, the remaining five results ended up as losses.

Onto the 2024 NFL Divisional Round

Next up, four games decide who will be in the AFC and NFC championship games next weekend. All four home teams are favored to win these matchups, and Saturday’s slate features large spreads. Baltimore is nearly favored by double-digits against Houston, while San Francisco is exactly a 10-point favorite against Green Bay.

  • Texans at Ravens (-9.5)
  • Packers at 49ers (-10)
  • Buccaneers at Lions (-6)
  • Chiefs at Bills (-2.5)

It’s no surprise to see the Ravens and 49ers as big favorites. Both of them are favored by a significant margin to win the Super Bowl. Despite losing big in a matchup between them on Christmas, San Francisco is the consensus favorite to win it all. The pathway opens up for them with multiple top seeds falling in the NFC side of the playoffs, and they’ve had lots of success against the Packers in the postseason recently.

Buffalo is the only favorite of the four games under a field goal against Kansas City. The Chiefs have been plagued with a struggling offense with plenty of drops, but they have looked better down the stretch, winning four of their last five. The defense is also one of the best in the league in limiting an opponent’s passing attack (176.5 yds/gm) and keeping them out of the end zone (17.3 pts/gm allowed).
