Pick 2: Green Bay -4.5
Historically we've done well in the playoffs and specifically the wild card round. Given this year's troublesome record, I'm definitely not as confident as I have been in the past. It doesn't help either that two starting QBs (Oakland and Miami) aren't playing this weekend. The models point to Green Bay, Detroit and Houston (but staying away from this game). We are betting big on Detroit and Green Bay but staying away from the Steelers' massacre of the Dolphins and Houston's bigger upset.
|DETROIT @ SEATTLE||-8||-5.3||2.7||59.8%|
|NY GIANTS @ GREEN BAY||-4.5||-9.5||-5.0||59.0%|
|OAKLAND @ HOUSTON||-3||-6.0||-3.0||NA|
|MIAMI @ PITTSBURGH||-10||-3.0||7.0||NA|
How to read the table:
- Vegas Line: A NEGATIVE number implies the point spread favors the HOME team
- Estimate: NFL Pickles' point spread prediction
- Pred-Vegas: Subtraction: POSITIVE implies VISITING team will cover point spread.
- Confidence: The probability that the point spread pick is on the correct side.
