Divisional Round Football odds released
By Bob Garcia
We just finished the “Super Wild-Card Weekend” and it was aptly-named with three great games taking place on Saturday and Sunday.
The biggest upset of the weekend was the Cleveland Browns beating the Pittsburgh Steelers, 48-37 as 5.5-point road ‘dogs. The Browns jumped out to an incredible 28-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to multiple Pittsburgh turnovers, and then were able to hold on from there.
Cleveland is now the biggest underdog (+10) for this upcoming weekend. They travel to face the defending- champion Kansas City Chiefs. Remember, the Chiefs and the Packers are the only teams who didn’t play last weekend as only the top seed in each conference got a bye this year.
As you can see below, all four of the NFL home teams are favored for this upcoming Divisional Round. Baltimore is the getting the least points (+2.5) at Buffalo after winning last Sunday at Tennessee (20-13) in a very physical game. The Ravens were actually 3.5-point road favorites in that one.
The best game on paper this week is Tampa Bay and Tom Brady getting three-points at Drew Brees and New Orleans. The Saints dominated the first two meetings between the teams this year, while also easily covering the spread.
Note we will have previews later in the week on every one of the games listed below. Make sure you keep checking back to the Big Blind Blog for all the latest information.
