Marc Lawrence, Playbooksports.com — ESPN reports that the favorites on the Wild Card Round games last week went 5-1 SUATS. The only upset came from the San Francisco 49ers (+3.5) over the Dallas Cowboys.
That improved Jimmy Garoppolo to 14-4 ATS and 13-5 outright as an underdog in his career. He has the highest outright winning percentage as an underdog by any quarterback in the Super Bowl era.
• Cincinnati is 0-10 straight up as an underdog in the playoffs (3-7 ATS). Since the Super Bowl era began in 1966, Cincinnati is one of three franchises without a playoff victory outright as a betting underdog alongside Detroit (0-9) and Houston (0-5).
• Teams coming off a bye week are 9-1 outright and 7-3 ATS in the divisional round since 2018
