NFL Who’s Hot and Who’s Not – Division Round Playoffs


We already know that Cincinnati and Minnesota have dropped like rocks from the NFL hot list after giving the game away in each of their losses in the Wild Card Round. The final eight playoff teams will be in action this weekend in the Divisional Round and we will take a closer look some of hot and not so hot betting trends for each of the four match-ups as well as BetAnySports opening NFL betting odds for the games.


Kansas City rolled-over Houston 30-0 this past Saturday to easily cover as a three-point road favorite, but the Chiefs are still just 2-3 against the spread in their last five games. They will face New England as five-point road underdogs this Saturday afternoon with the total set at 43. The Patriots are 23-2 straight-up in their last 25 home games and they have a 5-0 SU edge in their last five home games against Kansas City.


The second game on this Saturday’s NFL slate sends the Green Bay Packers on the road as seven-point road underdogs against the Arizona Cardinals. These two NFC foes faced one another in Week 16 of the regular season and the Cardinals cruised to a 38-8 victory as six-point home favorites on BetAnySports’ closing betting line. Despite that loss, the Packers are still 4-1 both SU and ATS in their last five road games. The total for this game has been set at 50 and it has stayed UNDER in four of Arizona’s last six games.


Sunday’s NFL Divisional Round action gets underway with a NFC match-up between Seattle and Carolina. These two met in Week 6 of the regular season and the Panthers pulled-out a come-from-behind 27-23 victory as seven-point road underdogs on a last minute touchdown. The Seahawks have a SU five-game winning streak on the road and Carolina is a perfect 5-0 SU in its last five home games.


The final playoff game this weekend is a rematch of Pittsburgh’s 34-27 victory against Denver in Week 15 as a seven-point home favorite. This time around, the Steelers will have to go on the road as 6.5-point underdogs with BetAnySports setting the total line at 40.5. Keep an eye on this betting line given both Ben Roethlisberger and Antonio Brown’s day-to-day playing status for Pittsburgh. Also in the Broncos’ favor is their 14-3 SU record in their last 17 home games.
