The NFL’s Wild Card weekend is nearly here, and it’s a pretty fascinating four-game slate for the league. Improbably, Bovada.lv currently lists all four road teams as favorites for the Wild Card round, with the lines ranging from the Packers as one-point favorites in Washington to the Seahawks favored by six points in Minnesota.
Many of those lower seeds look like the league’s hottest teams heading into the postseason, including the Steelers, who have won four of their last five games; the Seahawks, who have won six of seven; and the Chiefs, who haven’t lost since October 18th. Still, considering no team is favored by more than a touchdown this weekend, there’s a good chance we could see a handful of close games, with strong potential for at least one or two upsets.
Here’s the full schedule of Wild Card games:
- Chiefs at Texans (Sat, 3:35pm CT)
- Steelers at Bengals (Sat, 7:15pm CT)
- Seahawks at Vikings (Sun, 12:05pm CT)
- Packers at Washington (Sun, 3:40pm CT)
What do you think? Will we see the home teams pull through, or will the lower-seeded favorites prevail for the most part? Weigh in below with your picks for Wild Card weekend!
