NFL WILDCARD PLAYOFF GAME HANDICAPPING STATS

We have published some data on the past five years of history for the NFL Wildcard Games.

Please keep in mind that while we feel this information is well worth your review, that the sample size in fairly small.

In the embedded Excel workbook below, you will find the following worksheets:

Please note that the match-up sheets contain past playoff history as well as common opponent outcomes, and that the dollarized data on the WILDCARD_BY_LINE sheet represents a money line figure if one had played all the Favorites or all the Underdogs based on assumed X to win $100 for Favorites and $100 to win X for Dogs.

  • WC_CINN_VS_HOU – DATA SPECIFIC TO THE BENGALS VS TEXANS MATCHUP
  • WC_MINNY_VS_GB – DATA SPECIFIC TO THE VIKINGS VS PACKERS
  • WC_INDY_VS_BALT – DATA SPECIFIC TO THE COLTS VS RAVENS MATCHUP
  • WC_SEA_VS_WASH – DATA SPECIFIC TO THE SEAHAWKS VS REDSKINS
  • WILDCARD_BREAKDOWN – ML/ATS/TOTAL RESULTS BY CONFERENCE/FAVORITE TYPE/AWAY/HOME
  • WILDCARD_BY_LINE  – ML/ATS RESULTS BY CLOSING LINE
  • WILDCARD_BY_TOTAL  – TOTALS RESULTS BY CLOSING TOTAL
  • WILDCARD_DETAIL_HISTORY – DETAIL LEVEL FOR THE LAST FIVE YEARS OF WILDCARD GAMES

A few observations:

  • Only 1 time in the past 20 games did the points come into play
  • Dogs of less than 3 points have been 5-1 both straight up and ATS
