NFL Playoffs 2010 WildCard Round
January 6, 2010 by kdollar
The NFL playoffs will start on Saturday the 9th with 4 games in the WildCard Round.
New York Jets +3(-125) at Cincinnati Bengals -3(+105) – 34(1/2) o/u
The Jets come off a victory of 37-0 in week 17 against the Bengals. Along with the Jets winning 7 of the last 8 against the Bengals. I think you can’t go wrong taking the Jets for +3.
Prediction: Jets +3
Philadelphia Eagles +4 at Dallas Cowboys -4 – 45 o/u
The Eagles lost in week 17 to the Cowboys 24-0 in a game that had meaning with the winning team getting home field advantage. Though Philadelphia has beaten the Cowboys 6 times in the last 7 games. They both went 11-5 for the season. I think with the Eagles recent loss to the Cowboys the handicappers are pushing people to go for the eagles which I think is a good bet. I think the game will be decided by 3 and picking the eagles will win you the bet.
Prediction: Eagles +4
Baltimore Ravens +31/2(-115) at New England Patriots -31/2(-105) – 43 o/u
Last week the Ravens barely beat the Raiders while the Patriots lost to Houston but the biggest news of week 17 was the Patriots lost Wes Welker for the season. This is Tom Brady’s go to receiver and will definitely will be an issue for the Patriots offense. In the last 5 match-ups between the teams the Baltimore Ravens have lost all 5. I still think Wes Welker along with a strong Ravens D will cause problems for the Patriots and I am going to take Baltimore +4.
Prediction: Baltimore +4
Green Bay Packers (+1) at Arizona Cardinals (-1) – 47 o/u
In week 17 the packers dominated the Cardinals 33-7. It is hard to bet when you don’t know who is going to show up for the Cardinals. They handily defeated the Vikings but then lost against the niners. Green Bay has won 6 out of the last 7 against the Cardinals and Green Bay looks to have a good rhythm right now. I am going to go with the Packers +1.
Prediction: Packers +1
