Seattle Seahawks (11-5) at Atlanta Falcons (11-5)

When: 4:35 PM ET, Saturday, January 14, 2017 Where: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia TV: FOX NFL Odds: Atlanta -4.5 / Total: 51 Analysis: 59 percent of the betting public is on board with the Atlanta Falcons and I want to encourage you to back them as well. Seattle has been wildly inconsistent – and mostly disappointing – on offense this season and just won’t be able to put enough points on the board against the Falcons to get the SU win – or ATS cover. I’m expecting Matt Ryan to take advantage of the fact that Seattle will be without Pro Bowl safety Earl Thomas to help the Falcons improve on their 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games following an SU win. The Seahawks are 3-5 ATS on the road this season, 1-4 ATS in their last five road games and an identical 1-4 ATS in their last five playoff games overall. Atlanta has gone 4-1 ATS in their last five games against their NFC conference rivals and I believe they’re going to find a way to narrowly cover the spread against the offensively-challenged Seahawks while extracting some revenge for their controversial regular season loss to the Falcons. Pick: Atlanta 28 Seattle23

Green Bay Packers (11-6) at Dallas Cowboys (13-3)

When: 4:40 PM ET, Sunday, January 15, 2017 Where: AT&T Stadium, Arlington, Texas TV: FOX NFL Odds: Dallas -4 / Total: 51.5 Analysis: 65 percent of the betting public likes the Green Bay Packers to cover the spread as 4-point road dogs and I agree, even though I’m going to urge you to back the Dallas Cowboys to get the outright win at home to advance in a contest that looks like a classic field goal finish to me. While Dallas laid an emphatic 30-16 beatdown on the Boys in Week 6, on the road no less, this time around the Packers keep it much closer while pushing the Cowboys really hard for the outright win. Green Bay has gone 4-0 ATS in their last four playoff games, 6-1 ATS in their L/7 playoff road games and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall. While Dallas has gone 5-2 ATS in their last seven home games, the Cowboys are also just 1-4 ATS in their L/5 games against a team with a winning record and 1-5 ATS in their last six games overall. The Boys win a thriller, but the Packers cover! Pick: Dallas 31 Green Bay 28
