Bengals +4.5 @ Texans: Houston slid late in the season but with the talent they have on both sides of the ball look like a team that can get to the AFC Championship game.
Prediction: Houston 30 Cincinnati 17
Vikings +9.5 @ Packers: Odds makers are daring everybody to take the Vikings with that big number. I’m still not going to bite.
Prediction: Green Bay 35 Minnesota 24
Colts +7.5 @ Ravens: Ray Lewis retiring after the playoffs. Ray Rice and the Ravens are a different team at home. Colts make it a one score game late but the home team prevails.
Prediction: Baltimore 21 Indy 17
Seahawks -3 @ Redskins: This is the game of the wild card weekend. Skins in OT.
Prediction: Washington 23 Seattle 20 OT
