Wild Card weekend predictions

By Ryan Hannable

Saturday January 8
New Orleans Saints at Seattle Seahawks (+10.5)
Seattle goes into the game at 7-9, and all 9 of their losses were at least by double digits. I see that trend coming to an end, with the Saints winning but in a closer game than some people expect.
Pick: Seattle +10.5

New York Jets at Indianapolis Colts (-2.5)
The Jets are limping into the playoffs while the Colts have been playing a lot better towards the end of the season. Manning and the Colts are very tough at home in the playoffs too.
Pick: Colts -2.5

Sunday January 9
Baltimore Ravens at Kansas City Chiefs (+3)
The Chiefs haven't been to the playoffs since 2006, the lack of experience will cost them. The Ravens are also a much more tougher and physical football team.
Pick: Ravens -3

Green Bay Packers at Philadelphia Eagles (-2.5)
The Packers went in to Philly and beat the Eagles in week one, but I can't see it happening again. Vick is healthier and will be too much for the Packers defense.
Pick: Eagles -3

  1. Not bad picks, you did well on calling the Seahawks game close. The Packers are rolling though and will see the Patriots in the Super Bowl.
