49ers by 10, Ravens by 9, Lions by 6, Bills by 3 in divisional round.

As we enter the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, four teams will be playing at home.

In San Francisco, the 49ers had a ten-point lead against the Packers, making them the heavy favorite. No. 7 Green Bay is the first No. 7 seed to make it to the divisional stage, so despite Sunday's spectacular victory in Dallas, the Packers are still heavy underdogs.

Because they have been unrivaled in the NFL since Week One, when they defeated the Texans 25-9, the Ravens are nine-point favorites over the Texans.

Against the Buccaneers, the Lions are 6-point favorites. The Lions won the regular season meeting between the Buccaneers and the Lions 20-6 at Tampa Bay, therefore they get home field advantage and a day off.

The oddsmakers have Buffalo as a three-point home advantage in the Chiefs-Bills matchup, which is considered the closest game. In Week 14, the Bills defeated the Chiefs by a three-point margin. 

This game was marred by the notorious offside penalty called by Kadarius Toney, which negated what seemed like the winning score.

In the postseason divisional stage, the home team nearly always has a little advantage. Six years ago, due to Carson Wentz's injury, the Eagles were the first home team in the previous ten seasons to be considered an underdog in the divisional round vs the Falcons.

The Eagles would eventually win the game, the NFC Championship the following week, and the Super Bowl under Nick Foles's leadership.
