The Seattle Seahawks are the biggest favorite on the NFL betting lines for the Divisional Round of the playoffs this weekend, but the OddsShark Computer thinks they’ll be in tough to squeak out a cover in their Saturday night matchup against the Carolina Panthers.
The Seahawks sat as 11-point home favorites at the sportsbooks against the Panthers as of Tuesday, and the OddsShark Computer has Seattle beating Carolina by a score of 31 to 20.1 at CenturyLink Field. The Seahawks are 4-1 both SU and ATS in their last five playoff games according to this week’s NFL betting trends.

In the early game on Saturday the New England Patriots are 6.5-point home favorites against the Baltimore Ravens, and the OddsShark Computer has Tom Brady and company winning and covering the posted spread in that contest by a final score of 36.2 to 26.9. New England, though, is just 3-10 ATS in its last 13 playoff games.
On Sunday the Green Bay Packers host the Dallas Cowboys and the Denver Broncos get a visit from the Indianapolis Colts, and the OddsShark Computer has both of the home teams winning but not covering those Divisional Playoffs matchups.
Green Bay is a 6-point home favorite against Dallas, but the OddsShark Computer has the Cowboys keeping it close in a 37.3 to 33.6 defeat. Denver is sitting as a 7-point home favorite against Indianapolis, but the Colts are projected by the OddsShark Computer to at least pick up the ATS victory in a 31.9 to 28.4 loss in that contest.
