NFL Wild Card Weekend Betting Trends

The NFL's Wild Card round begins Saturday, and in this round the favorites have covered seven of the last eight games, while NFC home teams have covered seven of the last 10 Wild Card games spanning the past five seasons.

Last year all four Wild Card games stayed UNDER the posted total. This year, the computer is picking every road team to cover the spread, with two underdogs winning straight up.

On Saturday, at 5Dimes, the Indianapolis Colts are laying -2.5 to the Kansas City Chiefs and the Philadelphia Eagles are laying -2.5 to the New Orleans Saints.

We begin in Indianapolis, where the Colts have covered 11 of 14. The Chiefs, who are 0-7 SU and ATS in the playoffs since 1990 - including three losses to Indy - are 2-12 SU and 3-11 ATS against the Colts since 1990.

Totals lovers will be interested in knowing five of the last six meetings have stayed UNDER, while the Colts are 10-3 UNDER in the postseason since 2005.

The late game in Philadelphia finds two teams that have gone OVER in five of the past six meetings. The Saints are mired in losing streaks of 2-9 ATS on the road and 1-6 both SU and ATS as an underdog. The Eagles, meanwhile, are on home winning streaks of 4-0 SU and 3-0-1 ATS.

On Sunday, also at 5Dimes, the Cincinnati Bengals are laying -7.5 to the San Diego Chargers, while the San Francisco 49ers are laying -2.5 at the Green Bay Packers.

The Bengals have won and covered 11 of their last 12 home games, but they're also mired in an 0-5 losing streak both SU and ATS in the playoffs. San Diego rides in on ATS win streaks of 8-3-1 as an underdog and 3-1 on the playoff road.

San Francisco has lost five of its last six playoff games on the road and has failed to win eight of its last nine trips to Green Bay, since 2006. The 49ers are also on an 8-1 SU and ATS run when installed as road chalk.

Conversely, Green Bay checks into the postseason on spread streaks of 5-1 as an underdog with Aaron Rodgers under center and 5-2 in the playoffs. See also Wild Card player props.
