NFL Playoffs betting stats: The good, the bad, the ugly
By Marc Lawrence

Don’t look now but the 2015 NFL season is in the rear view mirror and with it the start of the Wild Card playoff games begins this Saturday.

Let’s take a look at some of the best, and worst, trends surrounding this weekend’s card. Here’s a brief capsule of the teams and noteworthy trends…

The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Seattle Seahawks at Minnesota Vikings

Good: Seattle QB Russell Wilson is 6-2 SU and 5-3 ATS in the postseason

Bad: Seahawks head coach Pete Carroll is 1-4 SU as a playoff visitor

Ugly: Super Bowl losers are 0-4-2 ATS away off a win in Wild Card rounds

Green Bay Packers at Washington Capitals

Good: Washington is 6-2 SUATS in Wild Card Round games

Bad: Green Bay is 1-4 SUATS vs. foes with a winning record this season

Ugly: Teams who won 4 fewer games last season are 1-12 SUATS as Wild Cards

ATS Diabetes

Like kids in a candy store, NFL Wild Card teams playing off huge regular season wins tend to crash-and-burn in these playoff openers.

That’s because Wild Card teams, off a season-ending SU double-digit win as an underdog win, are just 5-15 SU and 4-15-1 ATS.

The Redskins and the Seahawks could be up against it this weekend.

Stat of the Week

The straight-up winner in NFL Wild Card Round playoff games is 111-12-4 ATS since 1980.
