The Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs concludes on Sunday afternoon, as the ​NFC's No. 1-seeded New Orleans Saints host the defending Super Bowl champion Philadelphia Eagles. These two teams squared off in the same venue back in Week 11, with the Saints clobbering the Eagles by the score of 48-7.


The Saints are currently 8-point favorites over the Eagles, according to FanDuel Sportsbook, but with the ​multitude of prop bets and wagers available, sometimes it's easy to lose track of the classic, straight-up moneyline bet prediction.


Here are all of the expert staff predictions and picks for Sunday's 4:40 p.m. EST kickoff in the NFL Divisional Round at Mercedes-Benz Superdome. These staff members are from Bleacher Report, CBS and ESPN.

How do you like that, folks? A clean sweep – 20 for the Saints and 0 for the Eagles. It might not come as much of a surprise, but that none of these so-called experts as backing Nick Foles and the Eagles, despite ​the magical run the QB has been on, is pretty amazing.


You really can't blame them, though. This Saints squad is a different animal at home than they are on the road, having not lost ​at the Superdome with Drew Brees at QB since Week 1.
