NFL Wild Card Weekend Picks

Posted by in NFL Picks on January 1st, 2009 | Comment »

Playoff football is here.  I see all the road teams having the upper hand, but you always have to be cautious when picking road teams.  However, Wild Card teams in recent years have rolled on.

ATLANTA FALCONS -2.5 @ ARIZONA CARDINALS

The Cardinals are not playoff worthy, the Falcons are.  82% of the betting public is taking the Falcons.  However, the Cardinals are a dangerous team at home.  368 yards of offense per game and 30.7 PPG when they’re at home.  That defense of the Cardinals can be a liability for them though.  I think the Falcons win this one in a tight, high-scoring game.  I say Falcons win 31-27.  The over 51 may be the play to make in this one.

INDIANAPOLIS COLTS @ SAN DIEGO CHARGERS

This one is a pick ’em.  8/10 experts at Covers.com like the Colts and so do I.  How can you not?  They’ve won 9 in a row!  Manning has been unstoppable.  San Diego does have an impressive 30.5 PPG average and 367 yards per game at home though.  I think this will be another tight one: Colts win 27-24.

BALTIMORE RAVENS -3.5 @ MIAMI DOLPHINS

The 1-15 Dolphins of last year are in the playoffs.  That’s the NFL for you.  They’ve won 9 of their last 10!  The Ravens are 8-2 in their last 10.  With the Ravens allowing only 80 rushing yards per game, I think the Dolphins offense will struggle and the Ravens offense should roll over the Dolphins D.  The Ravens put up 33 on Dallas 2 weeks ago.  I expect the Ravens to cover comfortably.  Ravens win 27-13.

PHILADELPHIA EAGLES -3 @ MINNESOTA VIKINGS

E-A-G-L-E-S, EAGLES!!! I’m an Eagles fan, so I obviously expect them to win this one.  Also note that Adrian Peterson is playing banged up.  Eagles win: 23-16.

Good luck this weekend, enjoy the playoffs.
