Our weekly free NFL picks against the spread closed out the regular season much stronger than the Kansas City Chiefs, though that was a very low bar to clear. More importantly, it was yet another winning weekend as we head into the playoffs with a chance at our best season of picks yet.
Wild Card weekend always presents plenty of challenges and this year is no different. The biggest line of the weekend is 7.5 and that’s a rematch of the Green Bay Packers and Minnesota Vikings that is a rematch of a game won by a field goal in overtime last week.
The closest game is what should end up being the best game of the day in the battle of rookie quarterbacks when the Seattle Seahawks take on the Washington Redskins. Russell Wilson’s crew are three point favorites on the road, which isn’t something you see every week during the playoffs.
We did see it, however, last year in this round when the Pittsburgh Steelers were favored over Tim Tebow and the Broncos in Denver. Can RG3 pull out the upset the same way Tebow did?
If you are looking for some help navigating this weekend’s games, hopefully we can help!
