Which Teams Will Score the Most and Least on Wild Card Weekend

NFL Football Playoffs Super Wild Card Weekend Specials Props & Final Scoring

Winners and losers and point spreads are just one of the ways to have fun and pocket a return on wildcard weekend.

Another one with great value is to pick the teams and games that you think will produce the highest and lowest scoring outcomes this weekend.

Spreads here range from a low of +225 for the Bills-Patriots to be the lowest scoring game on the weekend all the way up to +5000 for the Steelers to be the highest scoring team as they take on the Chiefs.

Which favorites are worth backing? Which longshots should you go after? Who should you avoid?

Just before we dive into it, here is a breakdown of the six games with each teams’ PPG scored and allowed and anything of note.

Las Vegas at Cincinnati
Raiders: scored 22.0 PPG, allowed 25.8 PPG
Bengals: scored 27.1 PPG, allowed 22.1 PPG

Raiders put up 35 points against a weak Chargers defense with their season on the line last week and also welcomed back their best weapon TE Darren Waller. RB Josh Jacobs also had his best game in weeks.

The Bengals sat their starters last week, but QB Joe Burrow threw for 971 yards in his last two starts, against Baltimore and Kansas City.

New England at Buffalo
Patriots scored 27.2 PPG, allowed 17.8 PPG
Bills: scored 28.4 PPG, allowed 17.0 PPG

These are two of the highest scoring teams in the league (third and sixth) and the two best at preventing points this season.

Their first game was a defensive struggle, 14-10 in the Patriots favor, the second the offenses got going in a 33-21 win for the Bills.

The only times the Patriots scored more than 21 points in the last five weeks were against the Jaguars and the Dolphins.

The Bills scored 27 or more in their last five games.

Philadelphia at Tampa Bay
Eagles scored 26.1 PPG, allowed 22.6 PPG
Bucs scored 30.1 PPG, allowed 20.8 PPG

The Eagles had the best running offense in the league this year and the Bucs were top-three in stopping the run.

Take away the 9-0 loss to the Saints in week 15 and the Bucs scored 28 or more points in their seven other most recent games.

The Eagles did not win a game against a team with a winning record this year (0-7), but they allowed 18 points or less in five straight before the Cowboys hung 51 points on their backups in week 18.

San Francisco at Dallas
Cowboys scored 31.2 PPG, allowed 21.1 PPG
49ers scored 25.1 PPG, allowed 21.5 PPG

The Cowboys had the highest scoring offense in the league, but struggled multiple times to find a rhythm down the stretch. Their best offensive performances came against the Eagles who played their backups and Washington who were ravaged by covid and injuries.

The Cowboys defense gave up 25 or more points to teams with winning records on their schedule in four of their last five games.

The 49ers gave up 24 or more points to teams with winning records three of their last four games.

Pittsburgh at Kansas City
Steelers scored 20.2 PPG, allowed 23.4 PPG
Chiefs scored 28.2 PPG, allowed 21.4 PPG

The Chiefs beat the Steelers 36-10 in week 16 at home. They had a six-game stretch where they allowed an average of 10.8 PPG, but they gave up 24 or more in three of their last four (all except the Steelers game).

They scored 28 or more in each of their last five.

Pittsburgh finished bottom 12 in both scoring and points allowed. They scored 19 points or less in three of their last four and gave up 14 points or less in three of their last four, all against AFC opponents fighting for a playoff spot.

Arizona at LA Rams
Cardinals scored 26.4 PPG, allowed 21.5 PPG
Rams scored 27.1 PPG, allowed 21.9 PPG

The Cards had one of the top offenses in the league in the early going, but an injury to QB Kyler Murray and the long-term injury to WR DeAndre Hopkins hurt their momentum. They rebounded to score 25 on the Cowboys and 30 on the Seahawks in their last two games.

They allowed 22 or more in each of their last six games.

The Rams offense struggled with turnovers down the stretch, with nine in their last four games and as a result scored 24 point or less in three of them.

Both games these teams played this year were high scoring. The Cards won 37-20 in week four and the Rams won 30-23 in week 14.

Best Favorites Worth Backing:
Cardinals at Rams +350, Highest Scoring Game on Wild Card Weekend:
Raiders at Bengals +400, Highest Scoring Game on Wild Card Weekend:
The Rams and Cards have already shown they know how to score on each other. The Bengals were explosive down the stretch and having Waller back is huge for the Raiders.

Steelers at Chiefs +400, Lowest Scoring Game on Wild Card Weekend
Steelers +300, Lowest Scoring Team on Wild Card Weekend
Hard to see the Steelers scoring much against that Chiefs defense, but I also think the Steelers defense will rebound from their poor performance and hold the Chiefs in check.

Bucs +400, Highest Scoring Team on Wild Card Weekend
Tom Brady in the playoffs is a great bet. He was dynamic down the stretch, they play in warm weather and he should throw early and often. The Bucs are also returning to health after a rough December filled with Covid and injuries.

Favorites to Avoid
Patriots at Chiefs +225, Lowest scoring game
Josh Allen played like a man possessed last time these teams met and their offense is dynamic. Both teams have terrific defenses, but they also have top-ten offenses. Too risky.

Best Long Shot Worth Backing:
Raiders +2000, Highest Scoring Team on Wild Card Weekend
It will take a lot of points to beat the Bengals and having Waller back and Jacobs returning to form changes the complexion of the Raiders middling offense for most of the season.
