Want some excitement during the Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs? Play NFL Daily Fantasy Sports (DFS) this weekend and enjoy the playoff games even more.
If you’re looking for a way to combine the fun of betting and fantasy football, Underdog Fantasy may be the perfect site for you.
Unlike the typical salary cap lineup construction format that most DFS sites follow, Underdog has users build their own parlays by selecting Over or Under on up to five specific player props instead. The more props you select, the higher the multiplier on the entry fee.
Another unique game on Underdog is called Draft Tournaments, where users enter a snake draft of three, four, or six people and choose a roster. Then, you compete against the entire pool, and if your team scores the most, you win!
Now that you understand how Underdog Fantasy works, it’s time to give you my sleeper draft picks and my DFS football predictions for the Divisional games!
They don’t call me the “Head of Winning" at Underdog Fantasy for nothing.
Prop stats information for NFL DFS Divisional picks are current as of Thursday, January 20, at 4 p.m. ET.
NFL DFS Divisional Round: Underdog Fantasy Sleeper Picks
Users can enter two different Battle Royales for the Saturday and Sunday games and have a chance of winning a share of $60,000 in prizes.
Target these sleepers in your Underdog Divisional Drafts:
Tee Higgins, WR, Cincinnati Bengals @ Tennessee Titans
I like Tee Higgins as a sneaky backup option here. The Titans are expected to win this game, so the Bengals will be throwing the ball more. Not only that, but the Tennessee secondary is weak, which favors the pass.
The Titans’ strongest spot in the secondary is at safety with Kevin Byard, who will put more attention on Ja’Marr Chase and less on Higgins.

Odell Beckham Jr., WR, Los Angeles Rams @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
The Rams have been using Odell Beckham Jr. a lot in the red zone, so his touchdown numbers are way up. Los Angeles has a good shot at winning this game, so I feel OBJ is a great option.
Byron Pringle, WR, Kansas City Chiefs vs. Buffalo Bills
The Chiefs have shown that they’re not as focused on just getting the ball to Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce as much as they have in the past. With that, I like Byron Pringle to see some action in this high-scoring matchup.
Elijah Mitchell, RB, San Francisco 49ers @ Green Bay Packers
The Packers don’t have the best rush defense, so it will be in the 49ers’ game plan to give Elijah Mitchell the ball. Mitchell has a strong opportunity to be the top rusher of the whole Divisional slate.

NFL DFS Divisional Round: Underdog Daily Fantasy Sports Prop Games
Users can parlay up to five NFL fantasy picks together to win up to 20 times your entry fee.
Deebo Samuel, WR, San Francisco 49ers @ Green Bay Packers
OVER 1 Receiving Yard (SPECIAL)
Yes, you are seeing this correctly. This is a special line that Underdog Fantasy is doing for the NFL Playoffs.
Keep in mind, though, that you only get to use one special line throughout the playoffs. So if you use this Deebo Samuel line, you won’t get one next week, and vice versa.

Obviously, I’m taking Deebo with the Over.
Joe Burrow, QB, Cincinnati Bengals @ Tennessee Titans
OVER 0.5 Interceptions
I think this is a great option since Joe Burrow throws a lot of interceptions. The Bengals should be in a passing game script for most of the contest, given Tennessee will likely be in the lead.
Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, San Francisco 49ers @ Green Bay Packers
UNDER 243.5 Passing Yards
Jimmy Garoppolo is a fine player, but 243.5 is too many yards for a player like him where the 49ers will be keeping the ball on the ground. Also, Jaire Alexander is back for the Packers, so he’ll be lurking in the secondary.
Tom Brady, QB, Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Los Angeles Rams
OVER 287.5 Passing Yards
The last time these teams met, Tom Brady threw for 432 yards. Brady has been throwing the ball a lot, and if the Buccaneers are trailing (which I expect them to be), that’ll only increase his pass attempts.
Stefon Diggs, WR, Buffalo Bills @ Kansas City Chiefs
OVER 79.5 Receiving Yards
I’m picturing that shot of Stefon Diggs watching the Chiefs celebrate winning the AFC Championship last year. Diggs has to come up big for the Bills on Sunday for them to win, and I think he will.

NFL Divisional Games Predictions
Cincinnati Bengals @ Tennessee Titans
I don’t think this Cincinnati team is ready to win a road playoff game to go to the AFC Championship, so I’m going with Tennessee in this one.
Prediction: Titans over Bengals
San Francisco 49ers @ Green Bay Packers
I like San Francisco to upset Green Bay. The 49ers are strong on the ground, and this is going to be a physical game in the cold weather at Lambeau Field.
Prediction: 49ers over Packers
Los Angeles Rams @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Tampa Bay’s offensive line is banged up, which is a nightmare matchup against Los Angeles, so I like the Rams to win this one.
The Rams are also balanced enough on offense that the Buccaneers’ run defense won’t be the only thing that’ll hold them.
Prediction: Rams over Buccaneers
Buffalo Bills @ Kansas City Chiefs
I have Buffalo finally getting over the hump and making it to the AFC Championship. Kansas City has knocked them out the last couple of years, and it’s time for the Bills to come out on top.
