NFL Divisional Round Picks, Odds And Sportsbook Splits
The Super Wild Card Weekend was a good one on these pages, as our Picks, Opinions and Leans went 5-1 ATS on side selections including 2-0 on Picks. Our totals were undershelming, but we’ll keep firing and recognize public bettors did pretty well last week as Wild Card betting favorites went 5-1 SU/ATS. We were on four favorites as winners, and we move to the NFL Playoffs Divisional Round with eight teams remaining.
Our season long underdog picks went 28-12 ATS with 21 outright winners for a 70.0% win rate. For the 2022 NFL Playoffs, I provide NFL Divisional Round Picks, Opinion or Lean on every game, side and/or total and this week chip-in a few prop bets of interest.
This week’s Divisional Round picks and opinions are initially posted at Off Shore Gaming Association, and I add more betting data here from sportsbook operators that provide me data as a media member.
I also provide a NFL Divisional Round market update at Forbes, as I chip-in more sports betting and sportsbook data. It includes more insight on the Chiefs vs Bills game and the significance of New York sports betting following the state’s launch Jan. 8, 2022.
Be sure to check out my Divisional Round market report at TheLines, as more sportsbook data and director comments are provided.
For the first time since 1971, all four Divisional Round games have spreads of 6 points or fewer 👀
