   It's that time of year again already! PLAYOFFS!!!!!

This year I would call it "A Weird Year" at the least. There are 6 teams that did not make it to the playoffs last year and 6 that did make it. With that even 50/50 split, there are 2 teams that did not make it last year and 2 teams that did make it last year get the bye. So that being said, there is a 50/50 chance of a team that did not make the playoffs last year winning the Super Bowl. Pretty exciting stuff if you ask me! Let try to focus on this weekends games first. Remember there is usually an upset in these Wild Card games. Let's find them!


Oakland Raiders at the Houston Texans

Expect this one to be a lot closer than you think. The Raiders without Carr will be hurting on points but the Texans usually don't score a ton. Cook vs Osweiler could be an interesting match up. Cook another week with the team can help. They have a great receiving core. Osweiler makes many mistakes so that tells me this should be a close one. Texans are 7-1 at home but I would take the Raiders and the points! Wait until kickoff to get the spread more in your favor.

Detroit Lions vs Seattle Seahawks

The Lions did not show me much the last few weeks. They are on a downward spiral and in trouble of a blowout. Luckily they are playing a Seahawks team with the same inconsistent problems. No running game for either team tells me a lot of turnovers. I have to say the Seahawks at home win but would not be shocked if there was an upset here. Take the points and thank me later!

Miami Dolphins at Pittsburgh Steelers

I think this is the most lopsided game of the weekend. The Dolphins are rested but not as well as the Steelers are. I absolutely hate taking a Big Favorite in the playoffs unless it was the 90's 49ers! I have no choice here. The Dolphins barely win games but they did beat the Steelers this season. Tannehill was a none factor with 0 touchdowns. So they need Ajayi to run wild one more time. Tomlin is ready for that formula this time around. Dolphins need to pass to win and that won't happen. Big Ben and the boys ready this time around.

New York Giants at Green Bay Packers

Eli Manning is a Big Name when it comes to the playoffs. His 2 Superbowl victories to Rodgers 1 is something to look at. Manning has a playoff record of 8-3 mostly as an underdog! Rodgers record is 7-6 mostly as a favorite! This is another game that would not shock me if the Giants won this. The Packers did not want to see this match up the same as they were eliminated 6 years ago. Entering the playoffs the Packers are on fire winning 6 in a row. Their defense has been good enough. The Giants not looking good the last few games but winning is key. They usually win ugly. My heart says the Giants but my knowledge says the Packers with a double digit victory.

  PACKERS -4.5
