Moment of Truth for Eight Hopeful Super Bowl Threats

If the wild card round was any indication, the road to Super Bowl XLVIII could go down as one of the best in recent memory, a quick look at the Divisional Round schedule that awaits us this NFL betting weekend only confirms those suspicions. With eight rabid title contenders all chomping at the bit to prove their dominance, the two NFC and two AFC matchups in store will surely impress football fans. On Saturday, Tom Brady and the New England Patriots will look to cover a 7.5-point spread over an Indianapolis Colts team that rallied back from a 28-point deficit against the Kansas City Chiefs. Later, in the Seattle Seahawks-New Orleans Saints pairing, Pete Carroll and company will look to prove that they’re worthy of the championship buzz that’s followed them all season. On Sunday, the oddsmakers’ choice for most even pairing will unfold, as the Carolina Panthers host the San Francisco 49ers despite the Niners having a 3-point spread advantage. After that it’s the Super Bowl futures staple Denver Broncos and the upstart San Diego Chargers who’ve already surpassed expectations by even qualifying for the postseason. While Peyton Manning and the Broncos have the biggest point spread advantage and for good reason, that game and the other three tilts could very well go down as some for the history books. The question is, will it be better than last weekend?
