The second round of NFL Playoffs at NJ Sportsbooks is set for a HUGE a weekend of action! The Ravens, 49ers, Chiefs, and Packers are off their bye weeks and ready to make a run at the 2020 Super Bowl.
Playoff football is a rush, and a very popular betting market given the amount of good football teams, small spreads, and the small amount of games available after 13+ each week for the last four months leading up to last weekend’s Wild Card Round.
DraftKings Sportsbook provides odds and public betting trends for each game of the Divisional Round.
Let’s dive into it! It’s more important than ever to make sure you are playing at legal NJ sportsbooks like DraftKings. DraftKings Sportsbook is currently available in Pennsylvania, New Jersey, West Virginia, Indiana and New Hampshire.
