Default Divisional round upset chances: Ravens, Seahawks, Packers, Texans

http://insider.espn.go.com/nfl/playo...round-playoffs

What are the upset odds for the Seahawks, Packers, Texans and Ravens?


Seattle @ Atlanta
Remember that Atlanta was 7-1 at home this season, better than every team except -- wouldn't you know it -- Seattle. Chris Clemons' injury will hurt Seattle's defense, but Vegas' opening line has the Falcons favored by just two points.
Upset odds: 50.4 percent


Green Bay @ San Francisco

When Rodgers plays well, though, the Packers can beat anyone. Their passing attack ranks tops in the NFC overall. The 49ers will try to take Rodgers out of the game by running the ball early and often, so the Packers' No. 19-ranked run defense will need to step up (as it did against Adrian Peterson last week) in order to topple San Francisco on the road.
Upset odds: 45.1 percent


Houston @ New England

With a full bye week of scheming, there are few coaches more revered than Bill Belichick. The Patriots dominated on offense all season, owning by far the top offense in the NFL. While they added 228 points above what a league-average offense would score through the passing game, the Patriots were also the most efficient rushing team in the AFC after adjusting for strength of opponents.
Upset odds: 35.8 percent

Baltimore @ Denver
These two teams met in Week 15 in Baltimore and the Broncos' offense had a field day: Knowshon Moreno rushed for 115 yards on 21 carries and Eric Decker notched 133 yards on eight receptions -- both guys added touchdowns as well.
Upset odds: 27.4 percent

I like the Seahawks against the Falcons. And I don't know why the 49ers losing to the Packers would be an upset. I'd take Aaron Rodgers and his weapons over Kaepernick in the playoffs.

I love Seattle's chances as well.... they could blow out Seattle, but if the game is close, the pressure on Atlanta is going to build.
These guys have more than a monkey on their backs.. ..

Matty Ice, no playoff win ever.
Even Tony Gonzalez, never a single playoff win.

These guys earned the #1 seed two seasons ago, and got blown out at home in their first playoff game, where they thought they were unbeatable in that place.

They will feel more pressure than any team if the game is tight in the 4th quarter.

Green Bay is going to beat the 9ers and it's not gonna be all that close. Coaching/scheme( a foreign concept to DC posters) is where GB has a huge advantage, as well as the most important position on the field, QB.

I like Seattle to beat Atlanta and...I know I'm going out on a limb here...Baltimore to beat Denver. I just can't go against Ray Lewis here. I think that team is on a mission. While my head says Denver is going to win it all, my gut says that Lewis goes out a Super Bowl Champion.

I don't think either of the NFC games can be upsets. The two teams are evenly matched in both of them.

I really think the only game I would be surprised with the favorite losing is Denver. I'm only picking one upset (Green Bay) but Seattle and Houston have excellent chances of winning. Before the season, I picked Baltimore to win the Super Bowl but I give them only a 5% chance of winning.

Vegas doesn't make a habit of losing big like that.
I don't like it.... I want the money on San Fran.

My odds on each game winner this weekend:

Denver: 75%
San Francisco: 56%
Atlanta: 57%
New England: 94%

Whoops. Somehow I read Packers-3. It's the other way.
