There’s always a vast array of props available at sportsbooks when NFL playoff times rolls around, and this year’s postseason is no different. If you’re looking to get in on a different kind of wager, one shop has you covered.


NFL Divisional Round Player Props

Carson Palmer Arizona Cardinals

The NFL postseason shifts to the Divisional Round with the Kansas City Chiefs visiting the New England Patriots and the Arizona Cardinals hosting the Green Bay Packers Saturday followed by the Seattle Seahawks travelling to face the Carolina Panthers and the Denver Broncos entertaining the Pittsburgh Steelers in the two Sunday games.

Online shop Bovada has released their prop board for the NFL’s Divisional Playoff Round and, naturally, skill position players are front and center.


Nover: Bettors Should Monitor KC Injuries

Ben Roethlisberger and his sore right shoulder dominate the NFL Division Round injury news. There's also concern about the concussion status of Antonio Brown. The questionable health of these players is why Pittsburgh is plus 6.5 points instead of 3.5-point road underdogs against Denver.

What little leftover injury speculation goes to Marshawn Lynch and his drama.


NFL Divisional Round Betting Trends

NFL road teams went 4-0 during the Wild Card Playoffs last weekend. Don't expect a repeat this Saturday and Sunday in the Division Round. Each of the four home teams is favored.

Judging by the previous two seasons, however, the road clubs could be competitive. Away teams went 6-1-1 against the spread (ATS) the past two seasons in the Division Round. Over the total has been a money-maker, too, during this second round of the postseason with the over cashing 14 of 20 times the past five seasons.


NFL Divisional Playoffs Odds Analysis

Cincinnati linebacker Vontaze Burfict caused major uncertainty in regards to the opening line of the Pittsburgh-Denver Sunday NFL Divisional Round playoff game.

Ben Roethlisberger has a sore right shoulder and Antonio Brown was put in concussion protocol following questionable hits by Burfict during the Steelers' dramatic 18-16 win against the Bengals this past Saturday night.

Not every sportsbook had a line Monday morning on the Steelers-Broncos game. Those who did had Denver either minus 6.5 or seven without a total.


Prop: Where Will Manziel Be Next Year?

Johnny Manziel

Unless you've been living under a rock, I'm sure you've heard about Johnny Manziel’s recent escapade. Just in case you hadn’t heard, the Cleveland Browns quarterback reportedly took a trip to Vegas while on concussion protocol, wore a disguise to try and hide his identity, then didn’t show up for the team's final game of the season.

Expert Picks: NFL Wild Card Round

The 2016 NFL playoffs get underway this weekend, and it is all about the road favorites.

Over the last 30 years, playoff home underdogs are 17-14 ATS, but just 6-25 SU, according to the OddsShark database.

Steelers Look To Continue Success In CIN

Steelers Bengals Antonio Brown

AFC North rivals clash once again when the Pittsburgh Steelers visit the Cincinnati Bengals on Saturday. Though anything can happen in an interdivisional contest, the Steelers have been fantastic in their trips to Cincinnati, as Pittsburgh is 13-2 SU in their last 15 games and 10-2 ATS in their last 12 games at Paul Brown Stadium.  

The Steelers offense has been heaving the ball this season with the passing game accounting for 73.7 percent of the team’s total offense. As dependent as the offense has been on Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown, the team is more of a move the chains team than a big play threat. The Steelers rank in the bottom half in the league in plays of 20+ and 40+ yards.

The defense of the Steelers has been employing a bend-not-break strategy this season as they are 21st in yards allowed, but ninth in points allowed. Notably the Steelers secondary has been leaking like a sieve this season, as they are the third-worst team in the NFL (and the worst among playoff teams) at stopping the pass.

The offense of the Bengals rests on the injured wrist of A.J. McCarron for another week, as Andy Dalton is not expected to make a return for the team before a potential Divisional round playoff match. The Steelers were the team that injured Dalton in Week 14, thrusting McCarron into the starting spot. Since taking over under center, McCarron has led the Bengals to a 2-2 record (including that Steelers game), while throwing six touchdowns and two interceptions.

Cincy’s defense has allowed the second-fewest points per game this season and have held their opponents to under the 20 point plateau in seven of their last eight contests. The Bengals secondary has feasted on Ben Roethlisberger this season as they have intercepted the quarterback four times while notching five sacks in two games.

These rivals split their season series with an average scoring margin of +9.5 points for the winner. The Steelers opened as 2.5 point favorites despite the Bengals going 6-2 SU at home this season. The total for the game opened at 47 with the two matchups between the teams this season seeing combined scores of 26 and 53 points respectively.
