Wild Card NFL picks to target
One of the Wild Card Weekend NFL predictions that the model is most confident in is that the Bills (+2.5) stay within the spread against the Texans in the AFC playoff bracket on Saturday. The Bills were one of the most surprising teams in the NFL this season, winning 10 games for the first time since 1999.
Buffalo has not won a playoff game since 1995, but the Bills will enter Saturday’s matchup full of confidence. That’s because the Bills are 6-1 against the spread in their last seven games against AFC South opponents. Plus, Houston is just 1-4 against the spread in its last five games at home. SportsLine’s model says the Bills keep it within the spread in over 50 percent of simulations, while the under (42.5) also has plenty of value because that hits over 60 percent of the time.
The model also has made the call against the spread, on the over-under, and on the money line for every other game on the Wild Card Weekend NFL schedule. It’s also projecting a favorite to go down hard in an outright upset that will shake up the 2019 NFL playoff bracket in a huge way, so you need to see its NFL picks before locking in any of your own.
