Sunday NFL Playoff Handicapping

Will Betting the Underdogs in today’s NFL Playoff Picks be Profitable?

It’s the second weekend of NFL Playoff Picks action where the result will whittle down the combatants to a mere four teams for next weeks Conference Championships. After a run of 9-2 ATS for underdogs the first week of NFL Picks saw that proposition only post a 2-2 mark. As of this writing with Baltimore beating Tennessee, this years mark stands at 3-2 ATS (a respectable 60%). The playoffs tend to become more even as time goes on so will betting the underdogs on Sunday continue to make a profitable NFL Playoff Pick? Let’s take a moment and disect this Sunday NFL Picks matchups.

Philadephia at New York Giants

The Eagles beat the Giants in New York a month ago putting them at 5-1 SU and ATS in their last six games overall. With beating the Giants the underdog has won each of the last six games SU in this series. Another stat to consider in this NFL Picks mathup is that Super Bowl champions who are favored by 7 or less points in their first playoff game the next season are only 1-5 SU and ATS since 1980! In addition the team coming off a bye who is off back-to-back ATS wins in the playoffs are 2-10 SU and 0-11-1 ATS as dogs or favorites of 6 or less points when looking for revenge. However, before you go and jump on the Eagles consider that NY Coach Tom Coughlin is 26-13-2 ATS in games off a loss against division opponents (8-4 SU and 9-3 ATS with the Giants). His counterpart is now slouch however either as Andy Reid is 20-14 SU and 23-11 ATS when on the road versus a divisional opponent.
