On the weekend, NFL betting fans have four nail-biting divisional matchups to look forward to, each of which will no doubt 'separate the men from the boys' and determine which of the teams are likely to make it to the Super Bowl. Check out our NFL Playoff odds and point spreads review below:

Kicking off the action on Saturday, the physical Baltimore Ravens face the equally physical Pittsburgh Steelers in Pittsburgh, where both teams will no doubt pull out all the stops to move on to the AFC Championship. According to NFL oddsmakers, the Baltimore Pittsburgh spread shows the Steelers as the -3.5 points favorites (O/U 37).

Later that day, the Green Bay Packers face the Atlanta Falcons in Atlanta in what should be a humdinger considering these two teams are so evenly matched. The fact the Falcons are the No. 1 seed in the NFC and are coming off a bye could help though. As such, the Green Bay Atlanta spread has the Falcons as the -2.5 points faves (O/U 44).

On Sunday the Seattle Seahawks face the Chicago Bears in Chicago, where they'll do battle to move on to the NFC Championship. Of course, the 'battle' may end up being a 'walkover' for the home team, judging by the Seattle Chicago spread as per NFL oddsmakers, which indicates the Bears as the overwhelming -10 point favorites (O/U 41).

And last but not least, the New York Jets will face the New England Patriots in New England, and it will be interesting to see how the Jets fare considering how they crashed and burned 45-3 against the Patriots in Week 13. It shouldn't surprise that the New York Jets New England spread has the Patriots as the -9.5 point favorites (O/U 44.5).
