NFL playoffs football lines: Which underdog has the greatest chance

NFL playoffs football lines for the upcoming Divisional Playoff games are striking football lines.

The NFL playoffs football lines have the favorites favoured so strongly in each game.  The smallest of the NFL playoffs football lines currently displayed by SBG Global involves the Cowboys as 7½ point favorites over the Giants, while the largest of the NFL playoffs football lines has the Patriots as 13 point favorites over the Jaguars.  While many gamblers will be handicapping these NFL playoffs football lines with an eye for the underdog who can cover the playoffs football lines, other gamblers will consider the money lines and which underdog has the best chance of actually winning.

NFL playoffs football lines currently displayed by SBG Global for the money lines on these four match ups have the Seahawks priced at +310, the Jaguars priced at +525, the Chargers priced at +315, and the Giants priced at +275.  Clearly, these NFL playoffs football lines are not indicating much hope that the Jaguars will be able to beat the Patriots, yet the NFL playoffs football lines for the other three games price the three underdogs somewhat similarly.  While most bettors looking at these playoffs football lines will doubt that all four of the underdogs will win, it is reasonable to assume that at least one of the underdogs will not only cover the NFL playoffs football lines in the point spreads, but will also win the game outright and therefore offer a money line payout.

As the NFL playoffs football lines indicate, the Jaguars certainly seem like the least likely team to earn a win this weekend.  The NFL playoffs football lines indicate the Giants as being the most likely of the four to do so, which seems reasonable for a combination of reasons.  The Giants are playing the best football of their season right now, and as long as Eli Manning and the Giants’ fierce defense continue playing as well as they have during the past two weeks, then the Giants will be difficult for any team to stop.  Additionally, the Cowboys performed poorly late in the season and must deal with Terrell Owens’ ankle injury.  SBG Global’s NFL playoffs football lines have the Seahawks and Chargers priced in the money line almost identically, and while each one seems to be a long shot in the playoffs football lines, neither one should be seen as having an unreasonable chance at winning this weekend.  The Seahawks are playing very well right now and their defense has the potential to disrupt Brett Favre and force him into costly turnovers.  Similarly, the Chargers are in the midst of a long win streak and enjoy the confidence of having already beaten the Colts once this season.
