NFL Picks Against the Spread (ATS) for the Divisional Round

Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams

Fresh of off his first career playoff victory, Matthew Stafford and the Rams are shaping up to be slight underdogs on the road against the Buccaneers

The first round of the NFL playoffs may not have entirely lived up to its "Super Wild Card Weekend" billing, but it was very consistent in one respect. Five of the six teams covered, including Kansas City, which was about a two-touchdown favorite over Pittsburgh (Chiefs won by 21 points).

So with only four games on the schedule this weekend, what should we expect in the Divisional Round? Not surprisingly, all four home teams will likely be installed as the favorites, but the point spreads will be much closer. Will we see another round of "chalk," or is this where things really start to get interesting?

Here's how Athlon's own Rob Doster (@AthlonDoster), Steven Lassan (@AthlonSteven), and Ben Weinrib (@benweinrib), see the Divisional Round playing out when it comes to picking against the spread.
