2020 NFL Divisional Round ATS Betting Picks

Written by on January 7, 2020

The Wild Card Weekend proved to be one that was a little tough on bettors who like to play the favorite, as we saw a couple of really big surprises last weekend. This coming weekend, we will see the tops seeds in each conference come to play in the Divisional Round. Are the big guns going to move on, or will the lower seeds who came up with wins last week ride that positive wave into the Conference Finals? There is a lot to break down here, and we are going to cover all the wagering bases. Let’s get started with our against the spread NFL Betting picks for the Divisional Round.

2020 NFL Divisional Round ATS Betting Picks

Minnesota Vikings (+7) vs San Francisco 49ers

Coming into the playoffs, the knock on Vikings QB Kirk Cousins was that he could not win the big games. He put that to bed with a stellar performance on the road in New Orleans, helping Minnesota take out the Saints in OT.

The Vikings have now covered the spread in 4 of their last 5 games and are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 versus teams from the NFC. While they don’t have a great record on the road against the 49ers, they have won 4 of the last 5 against the 49ers overall. Vikings to cover.

2020 Divisional Round Betting Trends

  • Vikings are 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games played in January
  • 49ers are 5-14-1 ATS in their last 20 games when playing as the favorite

Tennessee Titans (+9) vs Baltimore Ravens

The Baltimore Ravens spent much of the season blowing teams out on their way to the #1 seed in the AFC, but things tend to get a little tougher in the playoffs. The Titans are coming off a huge win on the road against the New England Patriots in the Wild Card, with their run game helping them pick up that stunning win.

The best way to control the Ravens is to keep Lamar Jackson and the offense off the field, which the Titans can do if they establish the run early. I don’t see Tennessee winning, but I think they can do enough to cover.

2020 Divisional Round Betting Trends

  • Titans are 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games against an opponent in the AFC conference
  • Ravens are 7-2 ATS in their last 9 games played in January

Houston Texans (+9 ½) vs Kansas City Chiefs

With the playoffs now in full swing, it’s easy to forget about what went down in the regular season. With that in mind a lot of bettors may have already forgotten that the Houston Texans went into Kansas City and came away with the win earlier this season.

The Texans are underdogs for the 2020 Divisional Round against the Chiefs.

The Chiefs defense has tightened up considerably since then, but the Texans had some good practice last weekend in going against a very tough Bills D and passing the test, albeit requiring OT to do so. I think we could be looking at a tight one here, which is why I am on Houston to cover.

2020 Divisional Round Betting Trends

  • Texans are 6-3 ATS in their last 9 games when playing as the underdog
  • Chiefs are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games at home

Seattle Seahawks (+4) vs Green Bay Packers

I am taking a bit of a shot here and going with all the underdogs to cover the spread, although be sure to check my SU picks to see if that translates to some surprise wins. The Seattle Seahawks are about as banged up as a team can be at this stage of the season, but they have a coach and a QB who have a ton of experience in the postseason.

They did just enough last weekend to beat the Philadelphia Eagles on the road, and while this is a tougher proposition, I think they can keep this game to within a field goal.

2020 Divisional Round Betting Trends

  • Seahawks are 0-4-1 ATS in their last 5 games against Green Bay
  • Packers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games played in January
