Only the best, most talented teams get past their own bye. All things being equal, with two evenly-talented teams, I'll take the one who didn't get a bye every time. More momentum.
It's evident in other sports as well.
Just look at when one team wins the conference semi finals in 5 games and has to wait around for a week while the other team stays in top shape.
Just look when one team sweeps the AL championship series and has to wait around to play a team that's in a close series.
List keeps going.
