This Week in the NFL Playoffs

Recommended Posts

It is the best weekend in the NFL ... The divisional playoff round.

Battle-tested survivors of the Wild Card Round travel to take on the rested regular season top dogs ... and there are always some surprises.

Cinnamon is already up, remote in hand, soaking in all the football she can get ...

And she has convinced The Great Zomboni (She's very convincing) that there will be not one ... not two ... but Three victorious road warriors this weekend.

Atlanta at Philadelphia 4:35 PM Sat

Nick Foles is a solid backup, he's not the main issue here. I would take the Falcons even if Wentz were playing. This team was one quarter from the Lombardi Trophy last year and they are hitting on all cylinders again this year. They explode with talent on both sides of the ball, and ... they beat the good teams. The Eagles got out in front of a weak division and haven't played a big game in over a month, when they were a different team. They will have the stadium rocking in the first half, but Matt Ryan and the boys will be standing in the end. FALCONS 27 EAGLES 23

Tennessee at New England 8:15 PM Sat

I laugh and laugh and laugh when people think surrounding "controversies" will affect the Patriots. They don't give one shit. They won the Super Bowl last year with their best weapon out, they will not phased by some made up soap opera bullshit. If anything, it may make them screw the coffin on the Tits a little tighter. PATRIOTS 44 TITANS 13

Pittsburgh at Jacksonville 1:05 PM Sunday

You wanna see what a true AFC North team looks like, built for playoff success? Look no further than this years version of former AFCN denizens, the Jacksonville Jaguars. Best defense in the land. Dynamic running game. Strong -armed QB's job is not to lose the game, wait for the big plays to open up. The Steelers rode that formula to six Super Bowl wins, then they became a finesse team, always surrounded by drama, hiding in the tunnel, and they are going to get their lunch handed to them by a REAL team on Sunday.  It's January ... it's cold in Pittsburgh ... and just like always, the Steeler faithful can watch the best defense dominate ... Jaguar defense will eat these pussies up. JAGUARS 23 STEELERS 10

New Orleans at Minnesota 4:40 PM Sunday

The Vikings, like the Eagles, come across to me like Paper Lions. The best three teams in the NFC were all in the South, the Vikings and Eagles rode hot streaks through down years in their divisions (injuries and suspensions to others helped) and now they will get flushed out of the first round with the their backup-level QBs. Drew Brees ... he's not backup-level. He is historically-good, Mount Rushmore-good at his position level. And he will fly from the mouth of the Mississippi to the source this weekend and deliver a reminder of the difference in QB levels this weekend. SAINTS 30 VIKINGS 16

How To Bet NFL Futures

The “Odds to Win” wager in pro football is also commonly referred to as a future wager. Bettors must correctly select a team to win an event that takes place a later time. The money wagered will be tied up until there is an outcome and bettors will receive fixed odds when they place the wager. The future odds are normally updated on a weekly basis and wagers can be placed throughout the season.

To figure out your Win Amount, take the odds and multiply by the amount wagered. Ex. Green Bay (8/1) to win the NFC Championship. The Packers are listed as an 8/1 betting choice to win the NFC Championship. If you wager $100 on Green Bay to win the NFC and they capture the championship, then you would win $800 (8 ÷ 1 x 100). You would collect $900, which includes your win and stake ($100).

ONE MAN'S OPINION SATURDAY GAMES EDITION........

The Divisional Round of the NFL Playoffs will begin Saturday at 4:35 p.m. Eastern in the City of Brotherly Love, where the second-seeded Eagles will host the sixth-seeded Falcons at Lincoln Financial Field.
As of late Friday afternoon, most betting shops had Atlanta (11-6 straight up, 8-9 against the spread) installed as a three-point favorite at an even-money price. For bettors looking to back the home underdog, they must pay a -120 price to get the Eagles at plus three. The total was 41, while Philadelphia was +130 on the money line (risk $100 to win $130).
Philadelphia (13-3 SU, 10-6 ATS) went 7-1 SU and 5-3 ATS in eight regular-season home games. The Eagles were home underdogs just once, but it’s irrelevant because it was in Week 17 when they rested starters and lost 6-0 vs. Dallas as 3.5-point ‘dogs.

Doug Pederson’s club ripped off nine straight wins while going 8-1 ATS before venturing out West for more than a week. In the first leg of the trip, Philadelphia saw its winning streak snapped in a 24-10 loss at Seattle. Then it spent the week in California prepping for a game at the L.A. Rams. The Eagles won a 43-35 thriller as one-point road underdogs, but it was a bittersweet triumph.
Carson Wentz, the second-year franchise QB who had thrown for 33 TDs compared to merely seven interceptions, suffered a season-ending knee injury while running for a TD. Adding insult to injury, the TD run was called back for offensive holding anyway.
Now if you’re going to lose your franchise QB to a season-ending injury during a strong run to a division title, there aren’t many back-ups you’d choose ahead of Nick Foles. The University of Arizona product is a six-year veteran who spent his first three seasons with the Eagles before one-year stints in both St. Louis and Kansas City ended with him returning to Philly in a reserve role.
Foles enjoyed a career year in 2013, completing 64.0 percent of his passes for 2,891 yards with a remarkable 27/2 TD-INT ratio. He also rushed for 221 yards, three TDs and 15 first downs. But in ’14, he struggled with just a 59.8 percent completion rate. Foles threw for 2,163 yards with a mediocre 13/10 TD-INT ratio. Then he was traded to the Rams for Sam Bradford in the winter of ’15.
Foles has only played in one postseason game, a 26-24 home loss to New Orleans on Jan. 4 of 2014. He completed 23-of-33 throws for 195 yards and two TDs without an interception........

SO WHAT TO DO?  WELL IF YOU HAVE ANY MONEY LEFT AFTER CHASING THE BROWNS ALL YEAR I'M GOING PHILLY +2'!

AND NE -13, JAX +7' and then MIN -4...... and then go enjoy my Philly Cheese Steak Pizza! GO BROWNS!

ATL @ PHI (+2.5)

ATL is too hot. PHI is a playoff neophyte. Looking for this game to snowball out of control...

ATL 41 PHI 20

TN @ NE (-13.0)

Easiest pick of the weekend... too much Bill and Tom... but can't see them covering.

NE 31 TN 21

JAX @ PTG (-7.5)

Man I wanted to pick JAX and if the weather was really, really bad... as in bad enough to ground any air attack... I would. But it isn't going to be, so I can't...

PTG 22 JAX 9

NO @ MN (-4.0)

Week's hardest game to pick... so many weapons in NOLA's #2 ranked Offense. So much talent on MN's top-ranked D... but it's the other match up of MN's 2nd-hand O and NOLA's resurgent D that intrigues.

Take MN's "replacements"... and crowd noise... to win the day under glass and get a step closer to the first, home-field Super Bowl.

MN 27 NO 23

Listened to the end of a Tribe game on 1100 as we were driving on the Brooklyn Bridge a few years ago.

Yup... Detroit headquartered with transmitter in Windsor, Ontario, Canada where the lower limit was twice that in the states IIRC...

Vs. WIXY which was a 5000 watt station. I remember Mike Renari(?)... Renari in the Morning... Adventures of Chickenman...

Still have this in my record collection... the uncredited, real track 1, side 1 is the "WIXY 1260... Super Oldies" jingle.

Julio Jones has to come down with that 4th down pass.

He might not have been able to get both feet in, but he literally whiffed on a ball that went right between his hands. Ryan put the ball in the only place he could.

He Probably could have gotten his feet in had he caught it ... a lot of contact in the end zone, I guess they don't call that anymore.

Lol at these refs in the Titans and Patriots game.

Two VERY questionable calls for the Patriot team owned by Roger Goodell’s butt buddy.

Love Romo’s transparency though, he’s calling the refs out on their cowpoop.

And the non-call on the facemask of Henry with two of them looking right at it was ridiculous.

who's the hidden no name OL coach for Brady? That's the guy somebody should steal when this coaching orgy breaks up. Tom can pack a lunch,pick a nose booger,wipe his azz & still throw 7 seconds later..

finger LeBlow is the new Marty Stinkenhiemer. 

This guy is afraid to blitz, afraid to run play action passes, why not just personally give Brady a Blow-Job? Sickening football.
