2023 NFL Wild Card

  • When: Saturday, Jan. 14 – Sunday, Jan. 15

Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers -10 | Saturday, Jan. 14

The Seahawks barely got by the Rams in their final regular season game. Not only that, but to make it to the playoffs, Seattle had to hope that Detroit could upset Green Bay.

The Lions did exactly that, which is why the Seahawks get to head to San Francisco on Saturday. But the 49ers covered in both games this season. Can SF beat and cover versus a division rival for a third straight time? They can and they will. 

NFL Wild Card Pick: San Francisco 49ers -10 

Los Angeles Chargers -1.5 at Jacksonville Jaguars | Saturday, Jan. 14

The Jags did not look good against a fired up Tennessee team in their final game of the season. Jacksonville should play better against the Chargers.

The problem is that LAC is rolling. If we throw out the week 18 game, one that the Bolts didn’t require to win, the Chargers have won 4 straight. Even versus Denver, they’ve covered. LAC is just better than Jacksonville

NFL Wild Card Pick: Los Angeles Chargers -1.5 

Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills -10.5 | Sunday, Jan. 15

Miami struggled to beat the Jets. Also, they may have to play this with either Skylar Thompson or Teddy Bridgewater at quarterback. Tua could be out again due to another concussion that he suffered a few weeks ago.

Still, even with Thompson or Bridgewater at QB, the Fins are tough not to back at plus 10. Miami beat Buffalo straight up in one game and covered in the other. The Bills aren’t a great covering team, going 8-7-1 ATS during the season. 

NFL Wild Card Pick: Miami Dolphins +10.5 

New York Giants at Minnesota Vikings -3 | Sunday, Jan. 15

These two played a few weeks ago. The Giants almost pulled off the road win. It took a 61-yard field goal as time expired for the Vikings to beat NYG.

A similar games should happen on Sunday. There’s a great chance this pushes. So taking the 3 points, just in case the Giants keep this to within a point or 2, is the way to go. 

NFL Wild Card Pick: New York Giants +3 

Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals -6.5 | Sunday, Jan. 15

Baltimore played a good game against the Bengals in week 18. Baltimore starter Anthony Brown ran the offense well and the defense held the Bengals to just 27 points.

The Ravens should be healthier. There’s no telling if Lamar plays. But Tyler Huntley, Gus Edwards, and corner Marcus Peters should all step onto the field. Cincinnati should win but this could be a field goal, maybe, a 6-point game. The hook makes all the difference. 

NFL Wild Card Pick: Baltimore Ravens +6.5 

Dallas Cowboys -3 at Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Sunday, Jan. 15

The Buccaneers beat the Cowboys in week 1. The two teams aren’t much different than they were then.

The problem with backing Tampa is leaning on a team that doesn’t always show up. The problem with backing Dallas is that, sometimes, the coaches call a bad game. Washington blitzed the Cowboys in week 18.

Sam Howell, a rookie QB, went 11-of-19 for 169 yards, threw a pick, and a TD. Brady could light up the Boys’ secondary. Consider the moneyline. Take the points for sure. 

NFL Wild Card Pick: Tampa Bay Buccaneers -3
