2020 NFL Divisional Round Over/Under Betting Picks.

2020 NFL Divisional Round Over/Under Betting Picks

Written by on January 7, 2020

The Wild Card Weekend delivered a couple of big surprises, but if there was a common theme to be found throughout the 4 games, it was that points were at a premium and the games were tight. We saw two of the four games go into OT, with defenses leading the way in each of the matchups. The big guns are coming into the Divisional Round now, but does that mean that we are going to suddenly see the offenses come to the forefront? That is what we need to try and figure out as we make our point total picks for this weekend of NFL Betting action.

2020 NFL Divisional Round Over/Under Betting Picks

Minnesota Vikings at San Francisco 49ers (UNDER 46 ½)

The Vikings defense did a fabulous job of slowing down Drew Brees and company in their Wild Card win, but they will have another tough assignment this weekend in San Francisco. The thing that jumps out with the Vikings is that 8 of their last 12 games have gone OVER the point total.

It is the same with the 49ers, as they have seen 5 of their last 6 games at home go OVER as well, but the waters get muddied when these two go head to head, as 6 of their last 7 meetings have gone UNDER, which is what I believe happens here.

2020 Divisional Round Betting Trends

  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of Minnesota’s last 6 games on the road
  • The total has gone OVER in 7 of San Francisco’s last 10 games

Tennessee Titans at Baltimore Ravens (OVER 47)

The Tennessee Titans delivered the biggest surprise of the Wild Card Weekend, heading into New England and beating the defending Super Bowl champions in a fabulous defensive showing. Chances are they are going to need to open things up a little against a Ravens offense that is going to be very tough to slow down.

The Ravens are going to put points on the board, and while it may not be to the level that we saw in the regular season, they will score. Tennessee has seen 4 of their last 5 road games go OVER and I think we can expect more of the same here.

2020 Divisional Round Betting Trends

  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Tennessee’s last 5 games on the road
  • The total has gone UNDER in 15 of Baltimore’s last 19 games against an opponent in the AFC South division

Houston Texans at Kansas City Chiefs (UNDER 51)

When these two teams went head to head in the regular season, we saw the Texans win on the road in KC in a game that delivered a lot of offense. That game may have helped inflate the point total this weekend, as I find the 51 points to be a little bit on the high side.

The Chiefs should win against the Texans at the 2020 Divisional Round.

Houston has seen 7 of their last 10 games fall UNDER the point total, while the Chiefs have played very good defense of late and have seen 5 of their last 6 games fall UNDER the total. I don’t think we see as much offense as we did in the last meeting, which is why I am on the UNDER here.

2020 Divisional Round Betting Trends

  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Houston’s last 7 games played in January
  • The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Kansas City’s last 6 games

Seattle Seahawks at Green Bay Packers (UNDER 46 ½)

The old saying goes that defense wins championships, which is what we are going to need to see out of Seattle if they are to extend their playoff run in the face of a huge number of injuries.

That defense was solid last week, and they may well be again this weekend, with 5 of their last 7 games against teams from the AFC North going UNDER. It is a similar story for the Packers, with 9 of their last 12 games versus teams from the NFC West going UNDER the point total.

2020 Divisional Round Betting Trends

  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Seattle’s last 6 games played in January
  • The total has gone OVER in 4 of Green Bay’s last 6 games against Seattle
