The action gets going at 4:35PM Eastern Time on ESPN TV as the Houston Texans will host the Kansas City Chiefs. The current odds available for wagering at Oddsmaker, where the bonuses are the best in the business has the road team Kansas City Chiefs the -3 ½ point betting favorite with the total lined at 40 points. Those playing on the Kansas City Chiefs on the money line will lay -190 odds with the return on the home underdog Houston Texans at +160 odds on the money line.

These teams met way back in week one and it was the Chiefs posting the 27-20 road victory. They got a fast start in the win as they held a 27-6 lead late in the first half. The game saw the questionable benching of Texans quarterback Brian Hoyer that impacted the team’s poor start to the season. Houston has won three straight and seven of their past nine games. A big win came in Week 15 with a road victory at Indianapolis which allowed Houston to take control of the AFC South division. Despite some poor offensive numbers the Chiefs are carrying a ten game win streak entering the playoffs.

At 8:15PM Eastern Time on CBS TV it’s an AFC Wildcard matchup as the Cincinnati Bengals are home to the Pittsburgh Steelers. The road side Pittsburgh Steelers are favored by -3 points with the total set at 45 ½ points. Those playing Pittsburgh on the money line will lay -150 odds with the return on the home underdog Cincinnati Bengals at +130 odds on the money line.

These two AFC North division rivals split their two regular season meetings. Pittsburgh went into Cincinnati on December 13th and came away with a 33-20 road victory. Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton left the game early due to injury in his thumb by tackling a Steelers defender who picked off his pass. A.J. McCarron will likely get the start for Cincinnati in the Wildcard round as Andy Dalton has been unable to see enough practice time in preparation.
