Everyone loves the Ravens, lot of people sleeping on the Packers

The post-Wild Card weekend Super Bowl odds and splits reveal some interesting dichotomies.

The 2020 NFL Playoffs advance to the divisional round this weekend, and that means we have eight teams left competing for a shot at Super Bowl 54. The Baltimore Ravens are the clear favorites at DraftKings Sportsbook, and the betting public is backing that up. 26 percent of the post-Wild Card weekend Super Bowl handle is on the Ravens.

Below are the current Super Bowl 54 odds, followed by percentage of handle and percentage of bets in parenthesis. One of the more interesting numbers would be the Titans with 17 percent of Super Bowl tickets bet on them. They are the second highest number of tickets bet and fourth highest in handle. You knock off the Patriots and suddenly everybody gets excited. Derrick Henry will do that for folks!

People continue to sleep on the Packers. They have the second lowest handle and percentage of bets even though they are coming off a bye to face the Seahawks. It’s not an easy matchup for Green Bay, but home field and a rested team against a banged up Seahawks squad puts them in a good position to advance. They’re still viewed as the worst of the top four seeds across the league, but we probably shouldn’t sleep on them.

Ravens: +200 (26%, 16%)
49ers: +325 (14%, 11%)
Chiefs: +350 (18%, 14%)
Packers: +800 (8%, 10%)
Seahawks: +1200 (10%, 13%)
Vikings: +1400 (10%, 13%)
Texans: +2800 (3%, 6%)
Titans: +2800 (12%, 17%)
