Wildcard Weekend!


I have one best bet this week and it’s New Orleans -6.5


Tennessee at Kansas City


Line: Kansas City  -8.5
Total: 44.5

The Titans have lost 2 of their last 4 games, and have lost 3 of their last 4 road games. For the season their record straight up on the road is 3-5 and ATS 2-5-1.

The Chiefs have won and covered their last 4 games, 3 of them at home. At home they’re 6-2 straight up and also 6-2 against the spread.


In the playoffs, it’s a good idea to go with the better coach, which in this case is Andy Reid of the Chiefs. It’s also a good idea to go against a quarterback making his first start in the playoffs, which means to go against the Titans.

I like the Chiefs, but this line is too high to bet on them.


PROGnosis: Kansas City  -8.5


Atlanta at L.A. Rams

Line: L.A. Rams  -6.5
Total: 48.5

The Falcons have won 3 of it’s last 4 games. They’ve won 2 of their last 3 road games. For the season they’re 5-3 on the road, 3-5 ATS.  They haven’t scored over 24 points in their 5 games. In the last 6 games they haven’t given up more than 23 points.

The Rams have lost 2 of their last 4 games. They’ve also lost their last 2 home games. At home this season they’re 4-4 overall and 4-4 ATS.

I think the Falcons can stay in this game because they’ve been there before.  While the Rams are the better team, they’re a young team in the playoffs for the first time and that hurt them.

PROGnosis: Atlanta +6.5


Buffalo at Jacksonville

Line: Jacksonville -8.5
Total: 39.5

The Bills have won 3 of their last 4 games. They’re 3-5 on the road, 4-4 ATS

The Jaguars have lost their last 2 games, both on the road. At home, they’ve won their last 5 games while covering 4 of them. Overall at home their 6-2, 5-3 ATS.

This spread is too high. I don’t trust either team and I don’t see the value in betting either one. I do think Buffalo can stay in this game and cover the inflated spread.

PROGnosis: Buffalo +8.5



Carolina at New Orleans

Line: New Orleans -6.5
Total: 48.5

The Panthers have won 3 of their last 4 games. On the road they’re 5-3 overall and 5-3 ATS.

The Saints have won 2 of their last 3 games. At home they’re 6-2, 4-4 ATS.

These teams have played twice this season with the Saints winning both games, 34-13 in Carolina and 31-21 in New Orleans, covering both times.

Don’t fall for the old it’s hard to beat a team 3 times in the NFL. While that statement is correct, it’s correct for different reasons than people think. The reason  it’s so hard is because it’s hard to even play a team 3 times a season, not necessarily actually beating a team three times. Sure, if before the season started you had a chance to bet against the Saints beating the Panthers 3 times it would have been a great bet. Now they’ve already beat them twice, the hard part is over and it comes down to this game. Since the merger, this situation has happened 20 times, with a team winning all three games 13 times, for a record of 13-7, 65%.
