It’s come down to six teams in the NFC and six teams in the AFC. One of the hardest things in the NFL is making the playoffs so for that these teams should be excited. The pecking order is a whole different story. We currently have a couple of front runners for the Super Bowl. However, upsets will happen no matter what. It’s up to us to figure out who will make the big run for the championship. Before we get into our Wildcard picks we need to discuss some of the final facts on this season.
Some Interesting Facts to Close Out the Season
- Ravens hit a 14 game winning season. Best ever for the franchise.
- Jets made a nice run but a little too late. Six of eight to finish the season.
- The Bengals tied their worst record in Franchise history. 2-14
- Broncos found a way to win late in the season. 4/5 games.
- The 49ers will host every NFC playoff game this year if they win.
As you can see, some of the teams we were betting on all year made some interesting strides and it was all for nothing. Teams, coaches, and players play for more than what fans and bettors think. We will see what happens in the offseason. For now, let’s focus on the teams in the playoffs. Especially this weekend. We will look at all four games this week and hopefully bring you some wins. Remember to make your bets at Draftkings of Fanduel. You can see our reviews throughout the site.
Buffalo Bills @ Houston Texans
The Bills are getting the points being on the road. Is this enough for us to take the points? We’ve been up and down on the Bills this year and the last big game they played on the road was on Thanksgiving. They took care of business then. We have to take the Bills here. The Houston past has not been great in the playoffs. The Bills are happy to be back in contention and have the defense to keep them in the game. Look for the under here as well. We will take the Bills +2.5 on the road.
Tennessee Titans @ New England Patriots
Does the king go down this weekend? Will the dynasty continue their playoff winning streak? There are a lot of questions surrounding the Patriot this year. The thing is, what about the Titans? No one is talking about them. They are wild card teams who fought there way in. Will they come to Foxborough and unload the hounds? This is one of those games where the Patriots should win big. However, there are too many factors to consider here. Now, these are all the thoughts everyone is thinking. In the end, it’s the Patriots. We will take the Patriots at home -5.5.
Minnesota Vikings @ New Orleans Saints
Does Kurt Cousins get on the winning track when it comes to big games? NO. He is not meant to win big games and Drew Brees is ready to go out in style. Not that we know if he is retiring but you can be sure it will be a lot easier if they win the Super Bowl. This is a tough game. The books know what’s up by giving the Vikings 7.5. That is a lot of points. If Dalvin Cook is back for this one it will be a lot closer. The Saints at home have the momentum here. We have to ride the Saints -7.5.
Seattle Seahawks @ Philadelphia Eagles
The momentum is strong with the Eagles but Seattle knows how to win big games. In this game, we are looking at the Eagles getting points at home. They don’t have to win this game for us to win. We like that in a playoff game. This wildcard match-up could get wild and should go over the number of 45. We are going to take the Eagles +1.5 and the over 45.
If the announcers say the injuries have plagued the Eagles too much this year we know this was a bad judgment call. To get where they are required a whole lot of heart. If they can have 1-2 guys back they will have a fighting chance. As for the rest, this season has been fun to watch. Playoffs are a good time. We will continue our bets throughout the playoffs so be sure to check back often.
