NFL playoffs

NFL playoffs : Underdogs have done well in NFL playoff games lately. In last week’s Wild-Card Round the four underdogs not only went 4-0 ATS but 3-1 straight up. The only favorite to survive was the Cowboys. This was not a new phenomenon. Instead, it was a continuation of last season’s trend.

Including last year’s entire NFL playoffs and last weekend’s Wild-Card Round, underdogs have gone 14-1 ATS in the previous 15 NFL playoff games. The previous favorite to cover the spread was the Patriots, who beat the Titans 35-14 as a 13.5-point favorite in the Divisional Round last season. Since that game, 10 straight dogs have covered.

Now, even if underdogs have historically been better bets in NFL playoff games (70-52-3 ATS since 2007), this current trend doesn’t mean you should go out and bet every underdog this weekend. But you should take a few of them.

That’s not what is happening here. In fact, as I write this, there’s currently more action on the Chargers than the Patriots. Maybe the public has caught on to the underdog trend. Still, I like the Chargers here for football reasons. They’ve done very well on the road all season long,

But it appears there’s a 50/50 chance of getting some snow during the Chiefs-Colts game as well. As you can see there’s been a WINTER STORM WARNING issued for Missouri as well. This is a pretty hefty weather movement.

The reality is no one can easily predict how much snow is going to drop on this game. The National Weather Service department in Kansas City is suggesting there could be three-to-five inches on the ground throughout the course of the storm. But there’s a fine line where it could end up dropping a BOMB on Kansas City, with eight inches of snow not that far off. The weather outside is frightful, but the playoffs are just delightful. And when the Chiefs take the field against the Colts on Saturday to kick off the Divisional Round, the weather won’t be outside anymore, but snow could be a factor inside of Arrowhead Stadium.

We’ve already got shots from people with boots on the ground showing significant snow accumulation on the seats of Arrowhead Stadium, as of 9:30 a.m. ET. Kickoff is set for 4:35 p.m. ET (NBC, stream on fuboTV, try for free)

And a quick dive into the weather forecast shows that the snow might not be stopping right away either. The heaviest precipitation is supposed to come down during the remainder of the morning and on through lunch time.
