Super Wild Card Weekend is set to begin as we all strap in for arguably the best weekend of football of the year.

Bettors are flocking to place their bets and as we all know, there's likely going to be at least one underdog that's going to upset their opponents and move on to the divisional round. According to bettors, that underdog is going to be the Rams, who are the only underdog receiving more money at the betting window than their opponent.

If you read my betting preview for this game, you know that I'm with the public on this one, betting on the Rams to pull off the upset. This is a portion of what I had to say about the game:

"Nothing would be more "Lions" than hosting a playoff game for the first time since 1993 only to have your old quarterback, come back to Detroit to beat you and break the hearts of every fan in Detroit.

"Unfortunately, that's exactly what I think is going to happen. The Lions are stumbling into the playoffs, having a Net Yards per Play of -0.7 in their last three games. Their defense has also been bad all year. Entering the postseason, they rank 26th in opponent yards per play, which is the worst mark amongst all playoff teams.

"More importantly, their secondary has been horrific. They're 30th in opponent yards per pass attempt and 25th in both opponent dropback EPA and opponent dropback success rate. That's bad news considering they now need to face a Rams air attack that features Stafford, Cooper Kupper, and Puka Nacua."
