The 2018 divisional round continues Saturday evening as the New England Patriots host the Tennessee Titans . The winner advances to next week’s AFC Championship Game. Today’s game kicks off at 5:15 p.m. PT on CBS, with Jim Nantz and Tony Romo in the announcer booth, and Tracy Wolfson on the sideline.

The Patriots are a 13.5-point favorite, the biggest line of the weekend, and the second straight season they’ve been this big a favorite in the divisional round. Last season, the Patriots were a 16.5-point favorite against the Houston Texans, and covered with ease in a 34-16 win. This marks the sixth time the Patriots have been at least a 12.5-point playoff favorite, according to Odds Shark.

I don’t like huge lines when it comes to picks, but I think we see the Patriots roll in this one. Tennessee made the huge comeback against Kansas City, but if they fall behind to the Patriots, we won’t see a similar comeback. I’m going to lay the big spread.
