NFL Playoff Betting Trends

  • Quarterbacks making their first playoff start against a QB who isn’t are 15-31 straight up (SU) & 13-32-1 against the spread (ATS) since 2002. QBs that fit this trend for Wild Card Weekend: Baker Mayfield (Cleveland Browns) and John Wolford (Los Angeles Rams) if he starts for Jared Goff.
  • The last two teams to make the playoffs with losing records actually won their first playoff games. In 2010, the 7-9 Seattle Seahawks beat the 11-5 New Orleans Saints, thanks to Marshawn Lynch’s iconic “Beast Mode” run in the fourth quarter. In 2015, the Carolina Panthers upset the 11-5 Arizona Cardinals after a big game from Cam Newton. Both Carolina and Seattle had home-field advantage in its games. The team that currently fits this trend: The Washington Football Team, which enters the playoffs with a losing record at 7-9 and will host the Tampa Bay Buccaneers on Saturday.
  • Since 2012, there have been eight wild-card games with spreads of at least 7 points. All eight games went under the total. Games that fit: Chicago Bears at Saints and Bucs at WFT.
