  • Sharp bettors are playing both of Sunday's NFL Wild Card games, including Chargers-Ravens (1:05 p.m. ET, CBS) and Eagles-Bears (4:40 p.m. ET, NBC).
  • Using The Action Network's betting tools, we examine how professionals are betting these two games.

Saturday’s NFL Wild Card games provided quite the rollercoaster for bettors. The Indianapolis Colts got off to a smoking hot start against the Houston Texans and easily covered the spread (+2), but gave the 64% of bettors who took the over false hope by failing to score a point after midway through the second quarter.

The late game between the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys provided one of the craziest backdoor covers in recent memory after Seattle, trailing by 10 points, scored a touchdown with less than two minutes remaining in the game.

But with kicker Sebastian Janikowski unavailable to kick the extra point due to an injury suffered earlier in the game, the Seahawks were forced to attempt the two-point conversion, which they successfully converted, covering the 2.5-point closing spread despite ultimately losing, 24-22.

While yesterday’s games were certainly exciting, there wasn’t much of a consensus regarding how professional bettors were playing those matchups.

However, according to The Action Network’s betting tools, we can quickly see how wiseguys are betting both Chargers-Ravens and Eagles-Bears.
