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.

The action begins with New England hosting Kansas City Saturday afternoon. The Patriots are minus five. The Patriots concluded their regular season with road losses to the New York Jets and Miami. New England is 9-0 following consecutive defeats. The last time the Patriots dropped three straight games was - believe it or not - 2002.

The Chiefs, though, are the hottest team in the NFL with 11 victories in a row, 8-3 ATS. New England has failed to cover in nine of its last 13 home playoff games.

Cardinals Giving Up TD Hosting Packers

Arizona is minus seven hosting Green Bay Saturday night. Just three weeks ago, the Cardinals buried the Packers, 38-8, as six-point home favorites. That was the only time the Cardinals have covered at home during their last six games at University of Phoenix Stadium.

Seattle and Carolina have met six times since 2010. The Seahawks have won five of those games. However, their one loss during this span occurred in Week 6 when they fell to the Panthers, 27-23, as seven-point home favorites. Seattle blew a 23-14 fourth quarter lead in that loss. The Panthers are three-point home favorites in Sunday's matchup.

Broncos on Losing ATS Run in Playoffs

Denver, laying 6.5 points to Pittsburgh at home, is in the postseason for the fifth straight year. The Broncos have failed to cover in five of their last six playoff games, including the 2013 Super Bowl.

Most sportsbooks have yet to put out a total on the Steelers-Broncos matchup awaiting more information on Ben Roethlisberger's sore throwing shoulder and the status of Antonio Brown.
