2011 Divisional Playoff Picks

Pick 1: Green Bay -8.5 incorrect NFL point spread pick
Pick 2: New Orleans -3.5 incorrect NFL point spread pick
Pick 3: New England -13.5 correct NFL point spread pick
Pick 4: Baltimore -7.5 incorrect NFL point spread pick

I had to wait until the playoffs to get my first winning week. Sure feels good and boy did I miss them. It even feels better that it is during the playoffs. The first week was full of excitement and am looking forward to the divisional playoffs next Saturday.

For this year's divisional playoffs nfl point spread picks, I'm surprised all four games came out significant. We're betting all favorite teams to beat the spread. Again this week, home teams are the majority with the exception of the Saints (who by the way had the best ATS record during the regular season). I wanted to stay away from the Giants/Packers game because the Giants are playing really well, but it is hard to bet against Rodgers and the gang. I like the New Orleans pick and New England (Tebow, you had a good run, it's time). The Baltimore/Houston game is going to be all defense and I'm uncertain if they can clear 7.5 points but we'll see.

This week again we'll play 25% of bankroll. Giving us $155 per game for a total of $620 (that's $110 more than last week).
