It's time for the divisional round of the NFL playoffs, which thankfully is now Buffalo Bills-free. Last week, we hit on a couple of profitable trends on the total, and this week we'll turn our attention to the spread.

In the wild-card round, bettors were split, with no team receiving even 60 percent of spread bets. That was the case all week long, too, as percentages for all teams were in the 40s and 50s from the early going.

This week is different. Right now, all four games feature a team getting more than 60 percent of bets. We'll be going contrarian and looking at two teams that public bettors are ignoring.
