The AFC wrapped up its Wild Card round on Saturday, and the Divisional round matchups are set. The Baltimore Ravens will host the Tennessee Titans next Saturday, with kickoff set for 8:15 p.m. ET on CBS. The Kansas City Chiefs will host the Houston Texans next Sunday, with kickoff set for 3:05 p.m. ET on CBS.

We have opening point spreads and point totals, courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Titans +10
Ravens -10, 48

The Titans rode Derrick Henry to victory over the Patriots. They dominated on the ground and did enough on defense to contain the Patriots. They face a slightly more difficult follow-up game against the Ravens. Lamar Jackson and company have been the best offense in football. We’ll see if Henry, Ryan Tannehill, and the rest of the Titans offense can keep up.

Texans +7.5
Chiefs -7.5, 49.5

The Texans stormed back from a 16-0 deficit to beat the Bills in overtime. The win coupled with Tennessee’s upset of New England means we get a rematch of DeShaun Watson and Patrick Mahomes in the divisional round. The Texans won that one on a DeShaun Watson touchdown run in the fourth quarter. It makes the opening line all the more intriguing.
