Last weekend’s NFL Wild Card Round was filled with upsets. History tells us the Divisional Round will not follow the same pattern. Last year, home teams went 4-0 during this round, and have taken seven of eight Divisional Round contests over the last two seasons. Over the last six years, the teams that receive the bye are 19-5. The 2012 Ravens were the last club to make it out of the Wild Card Round and reach the Super Bowl.
With that said, there is usually one upset per season — last year notwithstanding — and the wide-open AFC seems like the perfect place for it to occur. Betting breakdowns of the two AFC games on the calendar this weekend are below. The NFC breakdown will come Friday.
