It what is the epitome of an up and down season for the 2019 Pittsburgh Steelers. After starting with the low at 1-4 and losing Ben Roethlisberger for the season, the Steelers went 7–1 over the next eight games. Unfortunately, finishing up 0-3 left the Steelers out of the postseason and moving towards 2020 while 12 other teams push forward towards the Super Bowl. But even though the Steelers season is over, there are still games to be played which means predictions will continue.

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.

Last week, Jeff and I finished up the regular season dead even in picking games against the spread. Jeff had a one game lead going into Week 17, but after he went 7-9 while I finished just ahead at 8-8, we are both currently 119-114-6. Jeff held a large 7-game advantage in the over/under on the season, but I finished just ahead this week at 10-6 while he was 7-9. On the season, we are even against the spread while Jeff is up four games in the over/under category.

So here are the picks for the Saturday and Sunday games for Wildcard Weekend of the NFL season. Please feel free to list your choices in the comment section below and play along!

All selections are based off of the consensus data from as of Friday night.
