All season long BangtheBook has brought you NFL betting trends to consider that will help you get paid. Wildcard weekend in the NFL was about as wild as you’ll ever see. It kicked off with the Colts amazing comeback win over the Chiefs. Three out of four games last weekend were decided in the final minute. Can this week’s games live up to that same high level? Let’s take a closer look at some important trends for each game.
-The Saints will have to come in with a completely different game plan compared to the last time they met up with the Seahawks in Seattle. Seattle dominated that Monday Night Football game 34-7. The Saints had just 188 total yards of offense in that game. It’s the playoffs now, and the stakes are much higher. New Orleans is 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Saints are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 at Seattle. The Seahawks are 37-17-1 ATS in their last 55 home games. They are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 playoff home games. The over is 8-2-1 in the Saints last 11 playoff games. The over is 6-1 in Seattle’s last 7 playoff games.
-Indianapolis is 23-11-2 ATS in their last 35 games against a team with a winning record. They are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games at New England. The Patriots are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games, but they are just 2-9 ATS in their last 11 playoff home games. The under is 6-0 in the Colts last 6 playoff road games. The over is 4-0 in the last 4 meetings between these teams.
-San Francisco travels to Carolina for the early game on Sunday. The 49ers are 18-7-1 ATS in their last 26 road games, so they won’t be intimidated playing away from home. The Panthers are 6-0-1 ATS in their last 7 home games. The 49ers are 3-13 ATS in their last 16 games against Carolina, including a home loss to them during the regular season. San Francisco is 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games at Carolina. The under is 8-1 in the Panthers last 9 games overall. The under is 4-1 in the 49ers last 5 playoff games.
-The Chargers pulled off the biggest upset of the first weekend. San Diego will have to beat Denver on the road for a second time this year to get to the AFC title game. The Chargers are really playing well right now, but it will be a tall task. The oddsmakers have Denver installed as a ten-point favorite. The Chargers are 6-1-4 ATS in their last 11 games at Denver. The road team is 6-0-1 ATS in the last 7 meetings between these teams. The under is 4-1 in their last 5 playoff games. The over is 4-0 in the Broncos last 4 playoff games.
