Underdogs have surprisingly dominated the NFL playoffs over the past two seasons
Currently all four underdogs in the #NFLPlayoffs Divisional round are receiving the majority of ticket. This has never happened before.— The Duel (@TheDuelSports) January 11, 2019
61% on Chargers +4
57% on Colts +5.5
57% on Cowboys +7
55% on Eagles +8
For the first time ever in the NFL playoffs, all four underdogs are getting the majority of the action, when it comes to bets with the spread.
What's most notable here is how large the margin is. The lowest percentage is the Eagles at 55 percent, which is still quite a bit above the 50/50 mark. Even if some bets come in over the next day or two for the favored Saints, it most likely wouldn't be enough to swing the percentage back in their favor.
