Which NFL starting quarterback remaining in the playoffs has the best career record against the spread?

Stick around and you’ll find out.

During the 2021-22 regular season, we tracked every NFL starting QB ATS and tallied how much money you would have won or lost backing them each time they started in the NFL throughout their careers, including the postseason. We have been updating their records - and adding each newcomer - after each week of play. A total of 59 different quarterbacks started games during the 2021-22 NFL regular season and playoffs.

So who has the best NFL betting record ATS among the eight QBs remaining in the postseason?

Jimmy G. Holds ATS Edge Over Mahomes

Ranking Every Starting NFL QB By Record Against The Spread: Championship Sunday Edition 3

San Francisco QB Jimmy Garoppolo, whose 49ers are +3.5 at DraftKings Sunday against the Rams, has the best career record ATS of the Final Four quarterbacks. Garoppolo has covered in 58.4% of his 53 NFL starts, including the postseason. The 49ers were touchdown underdogs at Green Bay in the Divisional Round before winning outright 13-10 on a last-second field goal.

Would-be Jimmy G. backers using our system of betting $100 ATS each week of his career with the industry standard -110 line per point-spread bet available at most sportsbooks and betting sites, are up $717.90.

Patrick Mahomes II of the Kansas City Chiefs is second among the four quarterbacks playing this weekend at 58.3% ATS, followed by Joe Burrow of the Bengals at 55.5%. The only QB playing this weekend who is under .500 against the line in his career is Matthew Stafford of the Rams, who played in Detroit for 12 years until this season. He has covered ATS just 46.5% of the time. Stafford led the underdog (+2.5) Rams past the Buccaneers 30-27 in the Divisional Round.

Here are the Final Four quarterbacks in the playoffs ranked ATS throughout their career, with their current team.
