2020 NFL Divisional Round SU Betting Picks

2020 NFL Divisional Round SU Betting Picks

Written by on January 7, 2020

After a crazy Wild Card Weekend, we are now down to just 8 teams with a shot at winning the Super Bowl, which mean that it is time for the NFL Divisional Round. There were some surprises last weekend, so the matchups that we are getting this week are not what most of us expected. Is this going to be the year of the underdog, or will we see the top seeds flex their muscles and move on? We are going to cover all the NFL Betting bases for the 2020 Divisional Round, starting here with our SU picks for the coming weekend. We will also have ATS and O/U picks coming your way.

2020 NFL Divisional Round SU Betting Picks

San Francisco 49ers over Minnesota Vikings

Prior to last weekend, the talk was that the Vikings might be ready to move on from QB Kirk Cousins if they went out of the playoffs early. That discussion has since been shelved, perhaps permanently, after Cousins helped the Vikings beat the Saints in New Orleans in OT.

Next up is a road trip to San Francisco, where Minnesota has just 1 win in their last 10 visits. It’s not a happy hunting ground for the Vikings, and while I think we are potentially looking at a close one, I think it will be the 49ers who come out on top.

2020 Divisional Round Betting Trends

  • Vikings are 4-1 SU in their last 5 games against San Francisco
  • 49ers are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games this season

Baltimore Ravens over Tennessee Titans

The Tennessee Titans win in the Wild Card Game is a tough one to figure out. Are they a legitimate Super Bowl contender, or where they catching the New England Patriots at a time when it looks as though that dynasty might be crumbling?

If they can go on the road and make things tough for the Baltimore Ravens this weekend, then we need to sit up and pay attention to this team, but I am not so sure they can do enough to derail what looks to be a very strong Baltimore team. The Titans might cover here, but I do not see them getting the win.

2020 Divisional Round Betting Trends

  • Titans are 5-2 SU in their last 7 games against an opponent in the AFC North division
  • Ravens are 6-0 SU in their last 6 games at home

Kansas City Chiefs over Houston Texans

The playoffs tend to be a very different beast than the regular season, but does that mean that we should ignore everything that happened during the 17 weeks of the regular season? If that is the case, then you need to forget that the Houston Texans went into Kansas City and picked up a win against the Chiefs earlier this season.

The Chiefs are slight favorites for the 2020 Divisional Round.

The Chiefs have improved a lot since then, though, especially on the defensive side of the football, plus they are always tough to beat at Arrowhead. I see a tight one here, but I am taking the Chiefs to move on.

2020 Divisional Round Betting Trends

  • Texans are 9-4 SU in their last 13 games this season
  • Chiefs are 5-0 SU in their last 5 games played on a Sunday

Seattle Seahawks over Green Bay Packers

My goal was to pick at least one underdog to win in the Divisional Round, which is what I am going to do with this pick. We were all perhaps a little too quick to write off the Seattle Seahawks heading into the postseason.

After all, their injury list reads like a who’s who of stating talent, yet they were able to battle through that and get a win in Philadelphia last weekend. I just have a strange hunch that this team is on the brink of something special, so I am taking Seattle in the upset win in the Divisional Round.

2020 Divisional Round Betting Trends

  • Seahawks are 8-1 SU in their last 9 games on the road
  • Packers are 6-1 SU in their last 7 games this season
