As would be expected, the 8-8-1 Panthers are underdogs at top-seeded Seattle next Saturday.
And as it turns out, they are the biggest underdogs in the divisional round.
Several Nevada sports books list the Seahawks as 11- or 11.5-point favorites over the Panthers, according to Pregame.com, which tracks lines in the state.
According to the Spreadapedia database, postseason underdogs of 10 points or more are 12-44 since 1978. The last postseason double-digit underdogs to win were the 2010 Seahawks, who upset defending-champion New Orleans (+10) in Round One.
In the other NFC divisional round matchup, the Packers are 6- or 6.5-point favorites over the Cowboys next Sunday at Lambeau Field, per Pregame.com.
The Cowboys have lost five playoff games in a row as underdogs. Per Spreadapedia records, their last postseason win when not favored by oddsmakers came in the defeat of San Francisco (-4) in the 1992 NFC title game at Candlestick Park.
