NFL Wild Card Predictions: Picks Against the Spread

The NFL playoffs will ultimately come full circle. The first of four wild-card matchups this weekend will take place at NRG Stadium, where the Houston Texans will host the Oakland Raiders on Saturday afternoon. Then, 10 games later, the NFC and AFC champions will square off in the same building for Super Bowl 51. Fortunately, while the year's first posteason game--which features Connor Cook and Brock Osweiler as the starting quarterbacks and an over/under of just 36.5 points--could be hard to watch, things will only get better, as the Lions vs. Seahawks, Dolphins vs. Steelers and Giants vs. Packers games should all be decidedly more dramatic and entertaining. The wild-card round also features a lot of intriguing betting lines--every spread is four points or more--and you can click through the gallery for my prediction for each game.
