There were some entertaining football games in the first weekend of the NFL playoffs! With two games going to overtime and three visiting teams coming up victorious, it made for some compelling story lines. But can the excitement carryover for another weekend? With every home team favored by more than a field goal, will we see any upsets in the divisional round?
For the 2019 NFL regular season and postseason, both Jeff Hartman and myself will be picking every game against the spread and the over/under point totals. Please remember we are not experts on betting or any kind of sports gamblers. We are just a couple of Steelers’ fans saying who we think will come through each week.
Two weeks ago, Jeff and I finished up the regular season dead even in picking games against the spread. But after I went 3-1 with Jeff going 1-3, I opened up a two-game lead. Jeff held a large four-game advantage in the over/under after last weekend and extended his lead by going 4-0 in the Wildcard round while I went 3-1. On the season, I am up slightly against the spread while Jeff is up five games in the over/under category.
So here are the picks for the Saturday and Sunday games for Division Weekend of the NFL season. Please feel free to list your choices in the comment section below and play along!
