NFL 2014 Divisional Playoff Weekend Opening Odds Preview

Fresh off the thrilling NCAAF 2013 BCS National Championship game, congratulations to the Florida State Seminoles, today we look at the opening odds for what will be an equally exciting NFL 2014 Divisional Playoff Weekend. Eight teams remain in the chase for Super Bowl XLVIII glory as the second round of the postseason opens with the Seattle Seahawks battling the New Orleans Saints at CenturyLink Field on Saturday, January 11, 2014.

Seahawks and 49ers: Favorites in the NFC Divisional Playoffs

How do you feel about a San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks 2014 NFC Championship game? We like it and if the bookmakers at the bet365.com sportsbook have their numbers correct that’s what we are going to get. Seattle, rested and ready after their first round bye, are posted as home favorites at-7.5 (-110) against the spread as they are set to face Saints in the early game on Saturday. Meanwhile, the 49ers are road chalk for a second straight weekend as they have a -2 (-110) ATS price for their game in Carolina against the Panthers on Sunday.

Patriots and Broncos: Huge home chalk for the AFC Divisional battles

Peyton Manning vs. Tom Brady – can you handle that as a 2014 AFC Championship match-up? Although Andrew Luck versus Manning would be equally compelling, we feel the Bet365 bookies are totally justified in making New England and Denver home chalk this weekend. The Patriots, postseason bound for the 16th time in 20 years, are -7 (-110) home favorites against the Colts at Gillette Stadium on Saturday. The high scoring Broncos will face the Cinderella San Diego Chargers on Sunday and Denver has drawn the largest line of the weekend at -9.5 ATS.

Stay tuned as we’ll be back with in depth analysis of the 2014 Divisional playoff battles on Saturday and Sunday!
