Let’s break down the games and reasoning starting with.
Bills (10-6) vs -2.5 Texans (10-6) +42.5
The Bills have put together a pretty swell season this year. They outperformed everyone’s expectations, and Josh Allen has settled in nicely-using his legs to blast through weak defences.
The Texans have been plagued by injuries, and the D has struggled with injuries. Their real weapon has been the feisty Deshaun Watson, who humbles the opposition.
For me the real marker here is how they both played the Patriots.
The Texans smothered and deep choked the Pats en route to an easy victory.
The Bills however saw what the Titans will see later, a team in control.
Buffalo just doesn’t have enough tools to keep this one tight enough.
The Texans will be motivated at home, with JJ Watt looking to return to pump up this Texas sized reception.
Texans will just be too much for them.
Texans 24 Bills 20
Titans (9-7) vs -5 Patriots (12-4) +44
‘You lost to Miami’. That sentence will be ringing in the ears of all of the Pats this season.
It won’t sound very nice to them, and will serve as motivation this week.
They dismantled the Bills a few weeks ago, and it’s hard not to see how they won’t get back to that form.
A storm near Henry is looming over Foxboro stadium, and coincidentally it might look like Derek Henry.
Billy B always shuts down at least one piece of the opposition, so who will it be this week?
AJ Brown, Henry or Tannehill?
Weather will be a factor here, so look at taking the over.
When it comes to the final, it’s hard not to imagine the Patriots putting on a clinical operation on the Titans in a long, boring game.
Patriots 23 Titans 14
Vikings (10-6) vs -8 Saints (13-3) +49.5
Drew Brees at home in a dome. All of these things don’t point to a good result for the Vikings. Add to that the insult of the Diggs catch a few years ago, and you can see how the Saints would be motivated. Brees has been crushing records this season, and the team is riding high on his supply.
The Vikings are welcoming back their soldiers from injury. Cook and Thielen will be back in this game, but how healthy will they be against this tough Saints D?
While I like the Saints to win, I think the spread in this one is too high.
The Vikings have deep ball threat, and Zimmer will be looking to shake up the momentum of the Saints.
The Saints will win, but not by 8.
Saints 31 Vikings 24
-1.5 Seahawks (12-4) vs Eagles (9-7) +45
It beggars the mind that a 12-4 team would be a visitor in the playoffs, but here we are.
The Seahawks have been grounded this season by their running game.
They have been so devastated that they have resorted to Old Skittles, aptly name because his raging body sounds like a bag of Skittles when you shake it.
The Eagles are injured too, but their real injury is a mental one.
They haven’t really beaten anyone of respect this season, and they don’t exude the tools to win a championship.
Then there’s Russell Wilson, aka the Difference-Maker.
Seahawks 26 Eagles 20
