The 2016 NFL Wild Card weekend I was perfect 4 – 0. The last 2 regular season weeks I was 8 – 2 and a 4 – 0 Wild Card Weekend will be hard to keep up. Time to make the playoffs picks:
Seattle Seahawks versus the Atlanta Falcons – 5
The Seahawks will be playing against their former defensive coordinator. The Falcons are having a magical season where everything went well for them especially on the offensive end.
I believe the Seahawks defense will keep the game close because taking the 5 points doesn’t mean I believe the Seahawks will win. Russell Wilson is a winner and will find a way to make just enough plays to cover the spread. I’m hoping for a 24 – 20 final score.
Take the Seahawks + 5
Houston Texans against the New England Patriots – 15
The more than two TD point spread is to scare off the people who fear the huge spread.
The Pats will cover big spread despite Texans very good defense. The Texans QB Brock will not have a great performance and won’t score 20 points to cover the spread. The weather may also be a reason that may affect the Texans offense.
Take the Pats – 15
Pittsburgh Steelers versus Kansas City Chiefs – 1.5
The Steelers Big Ben in a walking boot not good. I was planning to take the Chiefs anyways because of their defense and Tyreek Hill.
Bell calling himself the Stephen Curry of the NFL was a bit much when he is about to face a top-tier defense. The Chiefs defense will limit Bell and Brown; therefore Ben will have to find a breakout star.
Take Chiefs – 1.5
Green Bay Packers against Dallas Cowboys – 4.5
The Packers Aaron Rodgers was amazing against the Giants defense. The Cowboys defense will have the help of their ball control offense. It is all about Elliot and Prescott using their legs to make plays and hopefully Bryant can make two deep plays.
Elliot had two weeks off to get ready for the heavy workload and Cowboys offensive line will dominant the Packers defensive line.
Take the Cowboys – 4.5
Good luck this weekend!
