NFL Wild Card Weekend Predictions and Picks Against the Spread

Posted by in NFL Picks on January 2nd, 2008 | Comment »

I wish everyone a Happy New Year.  Hopefully 2008 brings some good fortune as always, starting with the Wild Card weekend.  Here are the picks.


Washington Redskins @ Seattle Seahawks -4

Who would have though Todd Collins would be the man to lead this team to 4-straight wins and a trip to the playoffs.  He’s helped provide an offensive spark: in that stretch the offense has averaged 26.25 PPG.  Santana Moss has been hot, which has helped out Collins: 75, 71, and 115 yards from him in the last 3 games with 2 TDs.  In that 4-game stretch the defense has done its part too: allowing an average of just 13.25 PPG.  Both sides of the ball are doing what they need to do and are playing playoff-caliber football.  Washington’s defense is ranked 8th in yards allowed (SEA ranked 15th).  However, Washington is ranked 11th in points allowed (SEA ranked 6th).

The Seahawks have had offense this season, mostly through the passing game, which is ranked 8th (WAS ranked 14th).  The running game, which is ranked 20th (WAS ranked 12th), has been a problem for them at times though.

61% of the consensus at is taking the Redskins, but the “experts” are split 4/4.  I can’t help but overlook the fact that the Seahawks are 7-1 at home and the Redskins are 4-4 on the road.  The Redskins have looked scary over the last few weeks, which is holding me back from taking the Seahawks.  Don’t underestimate Seattle’s home-field advantage.  They play great football in Seattle and “the 12th man” always give them a boost.  Plus, their team has a ton of playoff experience.  I’ll have to go with Seahawks.

Prediction – Seahawks defeat …
