Mandatory Credit: Kirby Lee-USA TODAY SportsIf the rest of the NFL playoffs are going to be anything like the Wildcard round then fans will be in for a huge treat. After last week’s Colts/Chiefs and Packers/49ers matchup nothing that the Division round of the playoffs can throw at us will be surprising. Last week the underdogs stole the show and covered every single spread on the board. The Chiefs were 2.5-point dogs and lost by one, the Chargers were seven-point dogs and won the matchup outright. And both the 49ers and Eagles failed to cover their respective spreads.
 
This weekend’s matchups might see more of the same as there are three large favorites in the Seahawks, Patriots and Broncos, to go along with a home underdog in the Carolina Panthers. It probably wouldn’t be shocking to see the underdogs cover every spread again. Here’s a closer look for the lines and odds for each game in the Division round of the playoffs.

New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks
Spread: Seahawks -7.5
Total: 46.5
 
Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots
Spread: Patriots -7
Total: 53.5
 
San Francisco 49ers at Carolina Panthers
Spread: 49ers -2
Total: 42.5
 
San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos
Spread: Broncos -9.5
Total: 55
