This weekend, everybody gets a turn in the playoffs. There aren’t any bye weeks left so we get to see the best of the best. Seven games now separate us from a new Super Bowl champion. If you had a bad gambling weekend or playoff fantasy weekend, we get to do it all again this weekend. Reid had an incredible run last weekend with his picks going 4-0. He’s red hot right now and I have his picks for you. I didn’t do so hot, finishing 1-2-1 or 2-2 depending on the gambling site that you used for the Seahawks’ spread. My fortunes change this week! Let’s get down to it. 

My Picks:

Kansas City Chiefs -5 Over Indianapolis Colts (Reid’s Pick: Kansas City)

I think home field advantage makes the difference here for the Chiefs. I don’t think that there is a weather advantage for the Chiefs, but it is still a tough place to play regardless. Andy Reid finally breaks the playoff curse.

Dallas Cowboys +7 Over Los Angeles Rams (Reid’s Pick: Rams

I think that Dallas’ awesome front seven has a really good chance of keeping them in this game against the high-powered Rams offense. I’m not picking the Cowboys to win this outright, but I think that it will take the Rams all four quarters to put them away. 

Los Angeles Chargers +4 Over New England Patriots (Reid’s Pick: Chargers)

The Chargers do just about everything better than the Patriots. They are also a completely red hot team right now. I’m taking momentum over home field advantage in this one. I think that the Chargers win it outright, but at least there is a buffer. 

New Orleans Saints +7.5 Over the Philadelphia Eagles (Reid’s Pick: Eagles)

This is the scariest line to me and I feel like it shouldn’t be. The Saint’s have a devastatingly efficient scoring offense with Drew Brees on the field, yet I am scared of Big Dick Nick.. There is no reason that the Eagles should have beaten the Bears last weekend, but they did. I am refusing to lay down the points in my actual bets and am instead only using the Saint’s as a teaser leg.
