NFL Divisional Playoff Betting Trends
The 4 top seeds are going to be popular bets in the divisional round but it should be noted that top seeds don’t always cover in this round.
The New England Patriots have been a very poor bet in recent playoff games, going 4-10 ATS in their last 14 playoff games. The 4 home teams are definitely no bargain as home teams since 2002 are under the .500 mark ATS.
Since 2002, home teams in this round are hitting at only about 45% ATS. You can’t just simply take all of the underdogs though, because in this round the big underdogs flop, as teams getting 9 points or more are under 50% against the spread.
