O/U Picks for This Week’s NFL Games | Wild Card Round Betting Analysis

Seattle Seahawks at San Francisco 49ers | Saturday, January 14th

The Seahawks were the last team to punch their playoff ticket, needing to wait until Sunday night to see the Packers lose their chance. Their reward is a trip to San Francisco to face the hottest team in football, with the 49ers coming into the playoffs on a 10-game win streak. You really have to like the 49ers here, but what about the point total? The 49ers have seen 5 of their last 6 go over, while Seattle has had the same result in 5 of their last 7 road games.

NFL Wild Card Betting Pick: Play the OVER

LA Chargers at Jacksonville Jaguars | Saturday, January 14th

Given that the Jaguars weren’t expected to be anywhere near the playoffs, you could argue that the pressure is off a little. They are in as a slight underdog in their Wild Card game against the LA Chargers, who have been a very good bet when playing on the road. The UNDER has hit in 4 of the last 5 for the Chargers and in 5 of the last 6 games that the Jaguars have played in January.

Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills | Sunday, January 15th

The Dolphins are another team that made it into the postseason by the skin of their teeth, knocking off the Jets in Week 18 to punch their ticket. It could be a short visit to the postseason, though, as they will start on the road at the Buffalo Bills. The Dolphins have seen 6 of their last 7 road games go OVER, and I think we get more of the same here.

New York Giants at Minnesota Vikings | Sunday, January 15th

Given how these teams ended the regular season, I’m a little surprised that the bookies have the Vikings in as a modest favorite. They won 13 games on the season and romped to a division title, while the Giants stumbled coming down the stretch. 4 of the last 6 meetings between these two teams have gone UNDER.

Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals | Sunday, January 15th

It’s a bit of a strange twist of fate that these two should be meeting so soon, as they closed out the regular season by going head-to-head in Week 18. The Bengals won that one, which is no real surprise when you consider how hot they have been in the second half of the season. The Ravens have struggled on offense and seen 5 of their last 6 go UNDER, while the UNDER has hit in 4 of the last 6 for Cincy.

Dallas Cowboys at Tampa Bay Buccaneers | Monday, January 16th

It’s not easy to get excited about the prospects for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers this postseason when you consider that they won their division with a losing record. Yes, they have home field advantage, but you have to say that they look overmatched against the Cowboys. We have seen 4 of the last 6 meetings between these teams go UNDER, so let’s follow that trend.
