The NFL wrapped up the Wild Card round on Monday evening and we’re headed to the Divisional Round. It was primarily a chalk affair the first weekend. The only underdog and road team to win was the 49ers, who beat the Cowboys in Dallas.
It is no surprise the Packers head into the Divisional Round as the Super Bowl 56 favorite. But they are only slightly ahead of the Chiefs. Notably, the Bills immediately follow while the Titans are among the longer shots of the final eight teams. Only the 49ers and Bengals have worse odds heading into the second round.
The Titans and Packers were the only teams to secure a bye. Tennessee faces a tough Cincinnati squad, but the longer odds are likely due more to how good Kansas City and Buffalo looked in the first round. Both already had better odds than the Titans coming into the playoffs, and the first round only further solidified their position in the eyes of many.
