NFL playoffs, round 1 picks

So we’re now in the playoffs for the NFL. Lots of tough games this week. Every matchup is within a field goal, so the people who set the lines must be expecting some pretty good games.

Anyways, on to the picks.

Game Spread Pick
Atlanta at Arizona Line: Falcons by 2 1/2 Cardinals
Indianapolis at San Diego Line: Colts by 1 1/2 Colts
Baltimore at Miami Line: Ravens by 2 1/2 Ravens
Philadelphia at Minnesota Line: Eagles by 2 1/2 Vikings

 

Arizona at home is better than Atlanta on the road.

The Colts will kill the Chargers. San Diego had to beat a lot of bad teams to make the playoffs at 8-8. Indianapolis beat a lot of good teams to make the playoffs. Indy will continue their streak.

Miami is probably the feel-good story, and had some good games this season. But Baltimore killed them earlier this season. Miami is overmatched.

Philadelphia is the one team I haven’t been able to figure out. When I think they’re winning, they lose. When I stop believing in the team, they start winning. But I think Adrian Peterson and the Vikings will be too much. Plus, Minnesota’s defence is great against the run, which can help negate Brian Westbrook.
