Packers at Cardinals, 8:15PM ET, Saturday

But despite their impressive performance, the Packers opened as a 7.5-point road underdog versus the Cardinals according to oddsmakers from online sports book It's not surprising that oddsmakers would set the line over a touchdown seeing as how Arizona lambasted Green Bay 38-8 in Week 16, sacking Rodgers eight times in the process. In that game, the Cardinals were a 6-point favorite and covered easily. The total for the rematch has been set at 50 points, which is the highest opening over/under of the four Divisional round matchups.

Seahawks at Panthers, 1:05PM ET, Sunday

The Panthers would go on to win their next nine games in a row before losing to the Falcons in Week 16. The total for Sunday's game is sitting at 44 points.

Steelers at Broncos, 4:40PM ET, Sunday

No spread in the Divisional round has the potential to move as much as Sunday's in Denver. That's because the health status of Ben Roethlisberger (shoulder), Antonio Brown (head) and DeAngelo Williams (ankle) aren't known. The Steelers opened as a 5.5-point underdog but the line has already been bet up to 7 at most sports books. The Steelers are reportedly optimistic that Big Ben will play this weekend, but if he's ruled out then the line will certainty jumped to double-digits in favor of the Broncos. If Brown and/or Williams are out as well, then Denver could wind up being a two-touchdown favorite by the time the two teams kick off on Sunday.
