Wild Card Weekend Playoff Games
NFL Game Lines 1/8, 2011
Date & Time Favorite Line Underdog Total
1/8 4:30 ET New Orleans -10 At Seattle 44.5
1/8 8:05 ET At Indianapolis -2.5 NY Jets 44.5
And for the 4 teams playing I found odds of them winning the superbowl:
New Orleans: 12/1
Seattle: 150/1 (OUCH)
New York Jets: 25/1
New Orleans, what can I say about this game when it's a 10 point spread. New Orleans only scores 24 points per game and to say they should cover the spread would be a lot considering they allow an average of 19+ each game. On the other hand the 7-9 Eagles are the worst team in the playoffs and score 19.4 PPG and allow 25.4 PPG. The statistics match between both teams. I'd put my best bet on the +10 Seattle, Saints moneyline, and the under 44.5.
There will be no miracle at the Meadowlands Saturday as they don't play at the meadowlands. Still there will be no Miracle for the Jets. This looks like an unfavorable matchup. Don't take my word for it though, the oddsmakers are giving the Jets a chance, however I think that the Colts -2.5 is easy money. The striking statistic of this game has to be the 45-3 loss to the Pats. This displays no contention with Superbowl bound teams.
Post your critiques and picks below. Looking forward to this weekend of football and hope its all a good one. Sorry if I offend any Jets or Seahawks fans, but I know how it feels... Come on I'm a Bills fan.
