Odds provided by the Las Vegas Hotel & Casino (LVH) SuperBook

Saturday, January 11

NFC - (6) New Orleans at (1) Seattle (FOX, 4:30 p.m. ET)

Opening Line: Seahawks -8 ½, 48

Seattle Home Record: 7-1 SU, 5-3 ATS
New Orleans Road Record: 4-5 SU, 2-7 ATS

Head-to-Head: The Seahawks destroyed the Saints in early December, 34-7 to cash as 6 ½-point home favorites. Seattle has won each of the last two meetings, including a 41-36 upset of New Orleans as 10-point home underdogs in the Wild Card round of the 2010 playoffs.

Playoff Notes: Under Pete Carroll, the Seahawks have split four playoff games, while posting a 3-1 ATS record. New Orleans edged Philadelphia in the Wild Card round, 26-24 to pick up its first road playoff win in the history of its franchise. In Sean Payton's tenure, the Saints had allowed at least 36 points in each of their three previous away playoff games prior to Saturday's victory over the Eagles.

AFC - (4) Indianapolis at (2) New England (CBS, 8:15 p.m. ET)

Opening Line: Patriots -9, 53 ½

New England Home Record: 8-0 SU, 6-2 ATS
Indianapolis Road Record: 5-3 SU, 5-3 ATS

Head-to-Head: The Patriots ripped apart the Colts in 2012 at Gillette Stadium, 59-24 as 10-point favorites. New England has won each of the last three meetings with Indianapolis (all at home), while Tom Brady has beaten the Colts in four of his last meetings.

Playoff Notes: Indianapolis overcame a 28-point deficit in Saturday's 45-44 shocker over Kansas City to win the franchise's first playoff game since 2009. The Colts have lost each of their last two road postseason contests, including a 24-9 defeat at Baltimore last season. The Patriots have been eliminated at home in three of the last four postseasons, as New England lost to Baltimore last January, 28-13.

Sunday, January 12

NFC - (5) San Francisco at (2) Carolina (FOX, 1:00 p.m. ET)

Opening Line: 49ers -1 ½, 43

Carolina Home Record: 7-1 SU, 6-1-1 ATS
San Francisco Road Record: 7-2 SU, 7-1-1 ATS

Head-to-Head: The Panthers edged the 49ers in early November, 10-9, as Carolina cashed outright as six-point road underdogs. Carolina has won four straight meetings with San Francisco since 2004, including home victories in 2007 and 2010.

Playoff Notes: The 49ers have won four of six postseason games under Jim Harbaugh, including a 2-0 record on the highway. Carolina is seeking its first playoff victory since 2005, while hosting its first postseason contest since a 33-13 defeat to the Cardinals in 2008.

AFC - (6) San Diego at (1) Denver (CBS, 4:40 p.m. ET)

Opening Line: Broncos -10 ½, 56

Denver Home Record: 7-1 SU, 5-2-1 ATS
San Diego Road Record: 6-2 SU, 7-1 ATS

Head-to-Head: These two divisional rivals split a pair of meetings with the road team winning each matchup. Denver held off San Diego in November, 28-20 as seven-point favorites, while the Chargers shocked the Broncos in Denver a month later, 27-20 as 10-point underdogs. Each of the two games finished 'under' the total.

Playoff Notes: The Broncos lost that epic second round matchup to the Ravens in double overtime last season, 38-35, while Denver is 2-2 at home in the playoffs since 2000. The Chargers and Broncos are meeting for the first time ever in the postseason, while San Diego is 4-4 in its last eight playoff contests since 2006.
