Here are the best Maryland sportsbook promos to take advantage of for the divisional round of the NFL playoffs.
Best Maryland Sports Betting Promos for NFL Divisional Round
The following Maryland sportsbook promotions are for new users only, though the platforms below certainly have special bonuses available for existing users as well.
DraftKings Maryland: Claim up to $1,250 in Welcome Bonuses
For a limited time, new DraftKings MD users can get two different bonuses worth a potential $1,250. We’ve made claiming these offers as easy as possible, as there is no promo code required for either bonus.
Simply sign up with our exclusive DraftKings Maryland promo code link and make an initial deposit of at least $5. Your deposit gets you a $50 bonus bet and 20% deposit match worth up to $1,000.

Caesars Maryland: Use code SHARPBETPICS to Get Your First Bet on Caesars up to $1,500
There are two options for new Caesars Maryland users, depending on how much money you want to drop on your first wager.

- $101 or more: If the first bet you place results in a loss, Caesars will match your wager amount as a bet credit, up to $1,500.
The flexibility to choose your Caesars Sportsbook promo is a plus, although the $20 minimum first bet is higher than most online sportsbooks.

PointsBet has two specific second-chance bets up for grabs as part of its new user offer.

BetRivers does a fantastic job with ongoing promos, and the larger amounts are really only useful for those who can responsibly lay down big first bets.
NFL Divisional Playoffs Schedule and Odds
The odds listed below are from Caesars Sportsbook as of January 20.
Jacksonville Jaguars at Kansas City Chiefs — Saturday, January 21 at 4:30 p.m. ET (NBC)
Spread: Kansas City -9
Moneylines: KC (-550) | JAX (+400)
The Jaguars-Chiefs game is set up to be a shootout, as the 52.5 point total is the highest of the weekend. These two faced off in Week 10 with the Chiefs winning 27-17. Patrick Mahomes completed 74% of his passes, putting up 331 yards and four scores.
The Jaguars’ secondary is their weakness defensively, which does not bode well going up against the Chiefs’ passing attack. In Mahomes’ postseason career, he has thrown for three or more touchdowns in seven of 11 games, making my favorite bet Patrick Mahomes Over 2.5 passing touchdowns.
New York Giants at Philadelphia Eagles — Saturday, January 21 at 8:15 p.m. ET (FOX)
The Giants come into this game with by far the best record against the spread at 14-4, covering in nearly 78% of their games this season. For reference, the next closest cover percentage is 70.6% (Cincinnati and Detroit).
This game will come down to whether or not the Giants can stop the Eagles’ rushing attack. When Philadelphia’s offense was at full strength in Week 14, the Eagles totaled over 250 rushing yards and four touchdowns on the ground. With Lane Johnson returning to the offensive line and Miles Sanders fully healthy, I like Miles Sanders Over 66.5 rushing yards.
Cincinnati Bengals at Buffalo Bills – Sunday, Jan. 22 at 3 p.m. ET (CBS)
Spread: Buffalo -5.5
Moneylines: BUF (-240) | CIN (+196)
The money has been coming in on Buffalo for their divisional round matchup, as the Bills opened as 3.5-point favorites. Both of these teams struggled in the Wild Card round against inferior opponents and will look to get out to strong starts on Sunday.
My favorite way to attack this game is with a teaser bet. I’ll be putting together a 6-point teaser with Cincinnati, Philadelphia, and Kansas City, taking their spreads to +11.5, -1.5, and -3, respectively.
Dallas Cowboys at San Francisco 49ers — Sunday, January 22 at 6:30 p.m. ET (FOX)
Spread: San Fran -4
Moneylines: SF (-190) | DAL (+160)
This game features the two strongest defenses left in the playoffs, as San Francisco and Dallas rank first and second in total defensive DVOA. Will the legend of Brock Purdy grow? Can Dak Prescott have another strong performance and get Dallas to the NFC Championship for the first time since 1995?
I don’t have a ton of confidence in picking the winner of this game, but I do like Deebo Samuel Over 15.5 rushing yards. Samuel looked fully healthy last week and put up 32 yards on the ground on just three carries. In seven postseason games, Samuel has gone Over this rushing prop in six of them.
