Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About The Last Five Years Of NFL Divisional Playoff Games

The embedded Excel file contains several frequencies that break down the last five years of NFL Divisional Playoff Games.

Please keep in mind that this five year history is comprised of only 20 games, so the sample size is relatively low.

It is worth noting that in all 20 games in this history, the Home team was the Favorite.  In this season’s round of Divisional Playoff Games, there is one instance of a Road Favorite, with the Saints being -3.5 against the 49ers.

Some observations on the data:

  • Overall ML has been 10 Favorites and 10 Dogs
  • Overall ATS the Dog has been 13-7 or 65.0%
  • Overall Totals have been 10 Over and 10 Under
  • Dogs in the Divisional Games that were on the Road for the Wildcard Round were 6-3 or 66.7%, against the ML, 7-2 ATS or 77.8%, and in those games the Under was  6-3 or 66.7%
  • Dogs in the Divisional Games that Favorites for the Wildcard Round were 9-3 or 75.0%, ATS
  • In the Divisional Games with Teams whose Wildcard Round games went Over, the Under was 6-3 or 66.7%
  • In the Divisional Games with Teams whose Wildcard Round games went Under, the Over was 7-4 or 63.6%
  • In the Divisional Games where the Line has been greater than 7, the Dog is 6-2 or 75.0%
  • In the Divisional Games 40% of the outcomes have been a correlated result of Dog and Under
  • In the Divisional Games Line Moves Down have been Correct 5 of 6 games or,  83.3% of the time
