NFL Playoffs betting tips are hard to find at the moment but we have you covered. The experts at RealBet helped me crunch the numbers, and much like our AFC betting tips showed, it will be an interesting NFL Wild Card weekend to say the least. Two of the biggest favorites are road teams including the 6th seeded Seattle Seahawks. Let’s break down the numbers for the NFC Wild Card.
Seattle Seahawks (-6) at Minnesota Vikings – NFL Playoffs Betting
The biggest spread of the week credits the surging 6th seeded Seahawks who come into this week’s playoff game on an absolute tear. Franchise QB Russell Wilson is playing better football than almost anyone else in the game, and the Hawks are coming off arguably the most impressive win by any team this season. Seattle looked good dismantling the 13-win Arizona Cardinals by 30 points on the road. The two time defending NFC Champions have the pedigree and public backing to be a popular bet to go all the way this January.
On the flip side, you have the NFC North Champion Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings have been the league’s best team against the spread this season, going a startling 13-3. However, it should be noted that one of those losses came against the Seahawks in early December when they lost at home 38-7. This is the first playoff game for Vikings QB Teddy Bridgewater, who gets to matchup vs. a Seahawks D that once again leads the league in total defense for the 4th straight year.
A home underdog in the playoffs is generally a good bet, let alone a home underdog that’s getting nearly a touchdown. However, the Hawks aren’t your typical 6-seed so this game should have bettors waiting until the final minutes before kickoff to make their wager.
Green Bay Packers (+1) at Washington Redskins – Packers Underdogs
Who would’ve thought just a month ago that the Green Bay Packers would not only lose the NFC North title, but would be underdogs against the Redskins in the opening round of the playoffs. This underscores what disappointing month Aaron Rodgers and company had, but also highlights the incredible turnaround by the Skins.
The Pack are 4-6 over their past 10 games, with both their offense and defense having struggled along the way. The Packers D has had its fits with elite QBs, and believe it or not, that’s exactly what Skins QB Kirk Cousins has been over the past 10 games. With 23 TDs to 3 INTs, he’s playing as well as almost any QB in the league- and has actually outplayed former MVP Aaron Rogers for most of the season.
The Washington Redskins come in giving up less than 20 PPG at home this season, and are 12-4 against the spread in their last 16 playoff games. However, the one area the Skins could face issues comes in the form of postseason experience. Green Bay has brought back many of the same players that went to the NFC title game last winter, while the Redskins come in with a playoff rookie QB and head coach. Hail to the Skins or Back the Pack? With a spread this tight, Green Bay at Washington may be the toughest pick of the week.
