NFL Wild Card Weekend Cash-In

Wild on Sports

Let the fun begin! The NFL playoffs are upon us! If your team is out of it you can still have a nice little smile on your face this weekend. Here is a look at the plays we like for each game. Good luck everyone!

Saturday, January 5th
Cincinnati Bengals at Houston Texans -- Reliant Stadium 4:30 PM ET
Line: Houston -4.5, O/U: 43
  • Bengals 0-4 SU & ATS past four playoff games
  • Texans 5-0 ATS past 5 games vs Bengals
  • Bengals 6-1 SU & ATS past 7 road games
  • Bengals won and covered past 4 as road underdogs
No team could have used a bye as much as the Houston Texans. Houston comes into this one as the most demoralized team in football having been in a major slump since taking a shellacking in New England on Monday Night Football a few weeks ago. As recently as 4 weeks ago Houston was considered by many to be the most complete team in football but backed into the playoffs and lost their bye week to the Broncos and Patriots.
Cincinnati +4.5, UNDER 43   LOSS, WIN

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers -- Lambeau Field 8 PM ET
Line: Green Bay -8, O/U: 46
  • OVER is 8-2 past 10 meetings
  • Packers 6-1 SU past 7 at home vs Vikings
  • Packers won 7 straight at home (5-2 ATS)
  • Vikings 8-3 SU & ATS past 11 as underdog
Packers had won 13 straight division games before losing last week. They won't publicly say it, but the Packers are down right embarrassed that they have allowed Adrian Peterson to run all over them in two games (210,199) and he single handedly beat them last weekend. With Charles Woodson back the Packers will have an added edge on the defensive side of the ball. Expect the Packers to make up for last week and then some.
Green Bay -8, OVER 46   WIN, LOSS

Sunday, January 6th
Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens -- MT&T Bank Stadium 1 PM ET
Line: -7, O/U: 47
  • Colts 8-0 ATS vs Ravens since 2004
  • Colts 5-0 ATS at Baltimore since 2005
  • Ravens 16-2 SU as favorite since 2011
  • Ravens 2-7 ATS past 9 as home favorite
Sadly, this will be the final game in one hell of a career for Raven's LB Ray Lewis. As good as RB Ray Rice is, it is a QB's league and Joe Flacco is simply not the answer. Andrew Luck, on the other hand, is going to come out slinging and will quickly show the Ravens that age is catching up to them.
Indianapolis +7, UNDER 47  LOSS, WIN

Seattle Seahawks at Washington Redskins -- Fedex Field 4:30 PM ET
Line: Seattle -3, O/U: 46
  • Redskins 6-2 SU, 5-2-1 ATS past 8 vs Seattle
  • Past 4 meetings here all played OVER since 1995
  • Redskins 7-2 ATS past 9 games as underdog
  • Seahawks 6-1 SU, 5-2 ATS past 7 as favorite
  • Seahawks 2-5 ATS past 7 road playoff games 
Put this game in Seattle and we have a completely different pick here but with RGIII & Co. on their home turf and going in as hot as any team in the league, we'll take the Redskins and the points.
Washington +3, OVER 46  LOSS, LOSS

3-5 weekend...ouch! We'll get'em back in the divisional round!
