NFL Playoff Odds: Wildcard Point Spreads Holding Steady

The release of the NFL playoff schedule brought betting lines for all of this weekend’s NFL wildcard matchups on Monday. When the opening lines are set, they are, by no means, set in stone. Right up until each game kicks off, point spreads are subject to change, with action on either side of the line dictating whether spreads increase or decrease.

A day later, have the lines changed at all? The answer, so far, is not much.

Seattle Seahawks vs. New Orleans Saints: The Saints opened as a 10.5-point favorite, and are still heavily favored. Bodog.com lists the Saints as 11-point favorites with an over/under — the total points scored — at 45.5 points. That line has moved a bit, settling about a point lower at 44.

New York Jets vs. Indianapolis Colts: The Colts opened as a three-point favorite and the line has yet to move. The over/under for the game was set at, and remains at, 44 points.

Baltimore Ravens vs. Kansas City Chiefs: The other NFL wildcard game in which the home team is the underdog had the Ravens opening as a three-point favorite. Again, there’s been no movement in the line, with the Ravens still favored by 2.5-3 points, depending on where you look. The over/under is the lowest of all the wildcard matchups, at 41 points.

Green Bay Packers vs. Philadelphia Eagles: The Eagles opened as a 2.5-point favorite and the line has yet to move. The over/under is also the highest of all the matchups at 46.
