The NFL divisional round is here, and it seems like everyone has an opinion on who will win.

This article's goal is to provide you with some betting advice for the upcoming games. The weekend's first game kicks off Saturday at 4:35 EST between the Jacksonville Jaguars and Pittsburgh Steelers. The second game starts Sunday at 1:05 EST when New England Patriots take on Tennessee Titans. Finally, Monday night's matchup features Atlanta Falcons versus Philadelphia Eagles at 8:15 EST. Read below more on the NFL divisional round expert picks.

 

Here are some ideas why they could win:

1. Le'Veon Bell hasn't played since week 17 (AFC Wild Card round vs. Dolphins). The Steelers have been doing fine in games without him, but any player can make a difference. He's one of the best players in the league, leading the NFL in yards from scrimmage (1,946) and total touchdowns (21). If he's "back" to full strength, I bet the Steelers win by more than three points.

2. The Jaguar's defense is not very good overall but is good against the run. However, this is a typical Bill Belichick game-plan: work on your weak spots with an unpredictable attack and exploit the opponent's weaknesses until they break. I bet he unleashes Le'Veon Bell early to try and get the Jaguars frustrated as they watch him run for big plays while their defense gets tired chasing him around all day.

3. The Jaguars have never won a playoff game in franchise history. They've lost all five playoff games they've played. To make matters worse, the Steelers are 6-1 in their last seven vs. the AFC South (including playoffs). If you believe in statistics as I do and the "math," it's easy to assume the Steelers should win this game.

4. Blake Bortles is a turnover machine, averaging 2.5 turnovers per game during the season, which was the second-most in the NFL (Ryan Fitzpatrick led with 3.0). The Jaguar's defense has forced only nine turnovers all year. On top of that, some analysts have said that Jacksonville

5. Tom Brady isn't playing this weekend, but that doesn't matter. The Patriots have won 5 straight playoff games with QBs other than Brady, including last year's Super Bowl loss to the Eagles (Nick Foles). It is a veteran team with a great head coach - they should win on the best sports picks daily.
