NFL Wild Card Computer Predictions

All the favorites will win but only one of them will cover the spread, if the OddsShark.com NFL picks computer is correct on Wild Card weekend.

That team will be the Seattle Seahawks, the only road favorite of the bunch. The computer predicts a 34-26 final, more than enough to cover three points on the spread.

The prediction disrespects Washington’s 7-0 ATS run and the fact they are 7-2 ATS in their past nine games as an underdog.

The other Wild Card action sees the home teams winning, but failing to cover. The computer likes Houston in a 28-27 squeaker over Cincinnati. The Bengals have been tough on the road and as an underdog, but 0-4 in their last four playoff games.

The Texans were 4.5-point favorites at Bovada and owners of a 5-0 ATS streak against Cincy.

Green Bay will rebound from a Week 17 loss to Minnesota to handle the Vikings 29-24, but that result won’t make Packer bettors happy. They were favored by 7.5 points as of midweek.

And Baltimore will knock off Indianapolis 27-21, buoyed by the Ray Lewis Love-in that is going on this week. That score would mean a Colt cover (+6.5 points at TopBet) and would run their record against the Ravens to 9-0 ATS, a staggering trend.

If the computer has its facts right, all four games will go OVER the total, which would continue a recent OVER trend (it was 3-1 last season).

Wild Card trends are a little sketchy when it comes to home teams and road teams. Last year, the home teams went 4-0. A year earlier, the road teams went 4-0.

Overall, AFC road teams (6-2 ATS) and NFC home teams (6-2 ATS) have been winners tthe past few seasons.
