If you thought Divisional Weekend was unpredictable, good luck pegging either the AFC or NFC title game based on recent trend history.
We looked at home teams, who are 13-5 SU the past nine seasons, but that streak doesn’t hold up recently (4-4 SU and ATS the past four seasons). We looked for angles based on underdog status, and it deadlocked as well – a perfect 5-5 ATS past five seasons.
So as Kansas City hosts Cincinnati and the LA Rams host divisional rival San Francisco, we need to dig deeper – or into more recent data – to find meaningful clues. Something like Kansas City’s impressive run at home and as a favorite (7 points as of Monday at FanDuel Sportsbook). Or something like the 49ers awesome streak in January and as an underdog (+3.5 as of Monday at Draft Kings Sportsbook).
