Heaven help us....Walt Anderson will be the referee for the SEA/DAL game. That's guaranteed to be a shitshow.

Lines:
HOU -1.5, 48.5
DAL -2, 43
BAL -3, 42 (though seeing a lot of -2.5s with double juice on BAL)
CHI -6, 41.5

Given the short lines on 3 of the wild card games, interesting to note that playoff favorites of less than 3 points are 15-35 ATS going back to 1980. Also underdogs by 3 or less points with a better W/L record are 13-2 ATS over that same period.

NFC Home Chalk
AFC Home Anti-chalk

At least that how it feels this weekend.

For me, the Chargers/Ravens game is the hardest one to call. I voted Ravens but now kind of want to change my vote. I have this funny feeling that we will end up in a close game decided by a Lamar Jackson fumble.

I cannot wait for Seattle at Dallas.

85-90% of the money is apparently on Indy so far and they might end up being the favorite come tomorrow. That's not a good sign for the Colts winning.

I like all these match ups and believe they could go either way.Not sure if they win,but I would like to see
Chargers,Chicago,Indy and hawks win this weekend.

O'brien is 1 and 2 in the playoffs.If he is out coached and the Texans lose,it might cost him his job.
Dallas is weird one.They played NYG last week like it was a must win,and almost got Vander Esch hurt.
They should win at home.But Dak and Garett could go mental a few times and give the game to the hawks.

85-90% of the money is apparently on Indy so far and they might end up being the favorite come tomorrow. That's not a good sign for the Colts winning.
The O'brien factor.

Sucks the Eagles or Bears will be eliminated since they are the only teams I can root for in the NFC.

I don't see the Texans beating the Colts.

Texans D is not as good as people think it is and they Jets and Eagles abused them and their O line is horrible.

The Bears if they win should root for Seattle to beat Dallas and beat the Saints in the divisional round so they can have the NFC title game in Chicago where they own Seattle.

I think they can beat the Rams in Los Angeles which is not that difficult if it is the Dec and not Sept and Oct 2018 Rams in the playoffs,

Will Amari Cooper show up?

It seems like he is back to being MIA like he was with the Raiders.

As much as I want the Chargers to win I don't think they will. The Ravens dominated them in LA and now they have to go to Baltimore.

I also picked the Texans, Bears, and Seahawks.

Seahawks at nearly 70%, that's a lot of wishful thinking.

If TY Hilton were healthy, sure. Since he reinjured his ankle last week, it will be much tougher for the Colts.

He seems good so far. 3 catches on 4 targets very early.

Looking methodical so far once they got past those first couple of third down conversions.

Good mix-it-up play calling from Colts. Texans are on their heels already.

As a Texans fan, it hurts to watch other teams offensive plays when we have Bill fucking O'Brien and his lame-ass play calling.

Books are going to get rolled if this keeps up.

Don't know what Witten was talking about re: challenge. Up 14 in the 1st Q, you don't waste a challenge on play that gets you to mid-field.
