The visiting Packers hope to send their backers to the pay window on Sunday as they look to cover the Wild Card point spread at Lincoln Financial Field against the Eagles.


NFL Trends: Wild Card Weekend

Last season the Colts ended the Jets' postseason journey. According to the trends, New York's playoff run will end against Indianapolis again this season.

The Jets and Colts clashed in the AFC Championship Game last season and Indianapolis rolled over New York 30-17 as a 7.5-point favorite on the NFL odds. In this weekend's rematch the Colts are a 3-point home favorite at Bovada.


NFL Props: Wild Card Weekend

Will the two regular season rematches on the Wild Card Weekend schedule give NFL prop bettors some insight when making their weekend wagers?

Saturday's Saints at Seahawks matchup is a rematch from Week 11. New Orleans cruised to a 34-19 victory as an 11-point home favorite in that contest. If this weekend's game mirrors that initial matchup at all bettors could clean up on prop bets at Bovada.


Wild Card Sunday NFL Betting

It's been more than a decade since Kansas City Chiefs fans have celebrated a postseason win. Could that finally change on Sunday when the Chiefs host the Baltimore Ravens as an NFL betting underdog in the Wild Card round?

More importantly, can backers celebrate a wild card wagering win?


Wild Card Saturday NFL Betting

The New Orleans Saints begin their Super Bowl defense as huge NFL betting favorites on Saturday when they take on the Seattle Seahawks in the Wild Card round.

At 11-5 the Saints may have finished with a better record than the 7-9 Seahawks, but since Seattle won their division they get to host Saturday's game. The Seahawks became the first sub-.500 team to ever make the postseason this year, which is just one reason why they are 10.5-point home underdogs versus the Saints at Bovada.


NFL Odds: Wild Card Weekend

Wild Card weekend betting has followed a clear path in recent years - don't bet NFC home teams to cover the spread.

In the last dozen games involving NFC Wild Card games, the home team has prevailed just three times (3-9 ATS).

While teams change season to season, there are often underlying considerations which contribute to patterns like this.

Betting OVER on every Week 17 game

Conventional betting wisdom tells us to select a few games where we find edges, study them closely and finally decide on a few games to bet on.

Unconventional wisdom suggests that, on some weeks, betting every game on the board blindly can be profitable, regardless of the odds.

Betting every game on the board? Are we crazy? Maybe, but perhaps crazy like a fox.

In a week following one where all the games went way over the total, sportsbooks often add a bit to the totals, inflating the number and giving an extra point or two of value to UNDER bettors.


NFL Week 17 Betting Odds

Despite losing three games in a row and five of their last six the Seattle Seahawks can still win the NFC West division title if they upset the St. Louis Rams this weekend.

Seattle is currently 6-9 on the season, one game back of the Rams who lead the division at 7-8. Last week the Seahawks dropped their third in a row after getting lit up by Tampa Bay 38-15 as a 5.5-point underdog. Matt Hasselbeck exited early on with a hip injury and was replaced by backup QB Charlie Whitehurst.


NFL Week 17 Prop Bets

As the NFL regular season concludes this weekend, Charlie Whitehurst is expected to start at quarterback for the must-win Seahawks and could pay off for props bettors.

Whitehurst hasn't been confirmed as the Seahawks' starting QB this weekend yet, but with Matt Hasselbeck unable to practice due to a hip injury it's likely only a matter of time before it happens.
