1. Seattle Seahawks (-3) vs. Was – The Skins are on a roll, but aside from the Ravens and Giants, who tanked over the 2nd half, no other team they beat had a winning record.
The Seahawks enter red hot and are no longer slouches on the road.
They’ll win this by a TD and cover the point spread.
2. Green Bay Packers (-8.5) vs. Min – GB is finally getting healthy on defense, with CB Charles Woodson back in the fold, and Aaron Rodgers will be getting WR Randal Cobb back too.
While the Vikings are hot, Lambeau is never an easy place to play in the post season and RB Adrian Peterson would need to have another monster day to keep this close. He might go off again, but look for GB regardless to win by double digits.
3. Cincinnati Bengals (+4.5) vs. Hou – The Texans improbable fall will continue on Saturday. Once slated to have home field throughout the playoffs, the Texans lost three of four – including their last two – and fell all the way to the No. 3 seed.
The Bengals enter this a year older and playing very well defensively, and will pull off the upset. They’re a good money line bet at +190.
4. Indianapolis Colts (+7) vs. Bal – Aside from the Ravens convincing win over the Giants, who failed to show up, Baltimore did nothing the final month of the season.
So it’s difficult to gauge how well they’ll play in this contest. The Colts on the other hand are playing with house money because no one expected them to be here, and will keep it close throughout.
