NFL Divisional Round 2024 odds: Winners picks for second round of playoffs

The NFL playoffs are on to what is widely considered the best weekend of the year - the Divisional Round. Who do our experts think will win this weekend?

NFL: OCT 16 Bills at Chiefs

The NFL playoffs for 2024 have moved on from the Wild Card round to the Divisional Round, drawing the Super Bowl contenders down to the final four teams from each conference. In the AFC, the first round saw a chalk result, leading to the fourth seeded Houston Texans facing the first-seeded Baltimore Ravens and the third-seeded Kansas City Chiefs headed to a game against the second-seeded Buffalo Bills.

Over in the NFC, a first-round upset has the seventh-seeded Green Bay Packers visiting the first-seeded San Francisco 49ers while the fourth-seeded Tampa Bay Buccaneers are at the third-seeded Detroit Lions.

As we do every week here on The Phinsider, our contributors are back with their picks for all of the Divisional Round games. Our predictions pool runs all season and primarily focuses on the straight-up winners for each game. We are able to make picks against the spread as well, with the odds for the game brought to us by DraftKings Sportsbook.
