Take these picks and then head to OddsShopper and find your best odds.
Best NFL Picks & Parlays: Wild Card Saturday Betting
The first step is to go over to OddsShopper and filter the game lines and then filter the two games being played on Saturday: Cincinnati vs. Las Vegas and Buffalo vs. New England. You can choose the state you are in and then sort by either the highest expected ROI or the highest expected win rate. For a parlay, focus more on the win rate; if the odds are a little juiced up, the parlay will help with that.
The sites that currently have the best odds for game lines referenced are BetRivers, BetMGM, and FanDuel. This column will highlight each bet and at the bottom will compare the parlay odds between the sportsbooks covered in OddsShopper.
Cincinnati Bengals Moneyline
OddsShopper gives the Bengals a 67% chance of winning the game on Saturday. The odds at the various sports books range from a 68% to 72% chance of winning the game, making it a negative ROI bet standalone but is a fine bet to include in a parlay. Cincinnati won easily when they played Las Vegas in Week 11, winning 32-13.

Bengals vs. Raiders Point Total: Under 49 Points
OddsShopper has an expected point total of 48 points for the game. The various books are offering 48 points to 49 points. Forty-eight points would be a push, while 49 and 48.5 would be under bets. The model gives under 49 points a 58% expected win rate. The expected win rate would go down closer to 50% if using a bet on under 48.5 points. Cincinnati averages 27 points per game, while Las Vegas averages 22 points per game. Cincinnati’s defense is No. 17 in points allowed per game, while Las Vegas is No. 26. When these two teams played in Las Vegas in Week 11, they combined for 45 points.
Buffalo Bills Moneyline
OddsShopper gives Buffalo a 57% chance to win the game. With odds around the sportsbooks being in the 65% to 67% range with their odds, this is another good bet to include in a parlay but not as a standalone, as it would be a negative-ROI bet. Buffalo split the season series with New England 1-1.
Cincinnati Bengals -4.5
The expected point spread according to OddsShopper is 5.8 points, and the various sportsbooks are offering between 4.5 and 5.5 points for the game. Cincinnati beat Las Vegas by 22 points the last time these teams played in Week 11.

BetRivers: +685 (Bengals vs. Raiders under 48.5)
BetMGM: +680 (Bengals -5.5)
Caesars: +671 (Bengals – Raiders point total under 48.5 and Bengals -5.5)
PointsBet: +710 (Bengals vs. Raiders Under 48 and Bengals -5.5)
DraftKings: +702 (Bengals vs. Raiders Under 48 and Bengals -5.0)
BetRivers, BetMGM and FanDuel offer pretty close to the picks above (FanDuel offers the exact ones). If willing to give up half a point on the total, then BetRivers is the way to go. If willing to give up 1 point on the spread, then BetMGM is the way to go. If wanting to match these exact bets, then FanDuel is the way to go. PointsBet and DraftKings offer higher payouts, but one has to give up points in both the total and point spreads.
Odds can change after this is published, so be sure to check with OddsShopper for the best odds at any given time.
