NFL Wildcard 2019
I'm excited for the start of the NFL playoffs! Here are my completely uneducated picks against the spread for this weekend's games.
Indianapolis Colts at Houston Texans (-1). Take the Texans here. No good reason other than they're the home team favorites and the Colts are 4-4 on the road.
Seattle Seahawks at Dallas Cowboys (-2). Take Dallas. Both teams are 10-6 on the season, but the narrative of the Cowboy's ascendancy is too compelling.
Los Angeles Chargers at Baltimore Ravens (-2.5). I don't understand the line. It seems as if the Ravens have some momentum, but the Chargers are a 12-win team! Take the Chargers.
Philadelphia Eagles at Chicago Bears (-6.5). Like Dallas, I like the narrative of the Bears rising to dominance. We won't know whether that's real or not until they play, but against this spread, take the Eagles.
