As the games tick away on Wild Card weekend, we’re getting a better idea of how the rest of the playoff picture is shaping up and NFL Divisional Round odds are on the board. 

In the NFC, the San Francisco 49ers will travel to Green Bay to face the Packers Saturday after they beat the Cowboys in Dallas on Sunday afternoon. The Tampa Bay Buccaneers will have to wait for the outcome of Monday’s game between the Arizona Cardinals and Los Angeles Rams before the other NFC showdown is decided.

In the AFC side of the tournament, the Kansas City Chiefs host the Buffalo Bills Sunday night and the Tennessee Titans welcome the Cincinnati Bengals to the Music City on Saturday afternoon.

Here are the opening NFL odds and early betting action for the Divisional Round:
