Green Bay looked like they could have beaten anyone, but they paid a heavy price. They need Jordy Nelson healthy for next week vs. the Cowboys.

I noted Red Rock had the Texans +18 yesterday (and the MLB at +2000)...query what the widest final betting point spread has ever been at kickoff for an NFL playoff game, because that seems pretty large...granted the Texans are going to get crushed, but still!

Greetings!

I still maintain that this should not be called the Divisional Round, it has nothing to do with the actual Divisions. In fact, this is an interesting year in that exactly zero of the teams even share a Division, much less play one another this week. The Divisions were decided at the end of the regular season, which is when they are always decided.

The Conference Championship Semi-Final Lines are as follows:

Seahawks +5 @ Falcons -5 O/U 51.5
Texans +16 @ Patriots -16 O/U 44.5
Steelers +1.5 @ Chiefs -1.5 O/U 44
Packers +4.5 @ Cowboys -4.5 O/U 52.5

What an interesting week! I think it is conceivable that we see all the favorites win again this week, though I don't know that we'll see all of them cover again this week. The potential is definitely there for the favorites to run the table, though, especially given that one of them is such a huge favorite.

The Picks are due by Saturday 1/14/17 at 10:00a.m. EST

If you're counting Super Bowls, the Colts were 18 point favorites over the Jets, in Super Bowl III, back in 1969.

The 49ers were 18.5 to 19 point favorites over the Chargers in Super Bowl XXIX, back in 1995.

I don't know of any playoff spreads larger than these.

Greetings!

Just to let everyone know, I usually try to get the Picks posted up within a few minutes of the deadline, but I have to take someone to a dental procedure, so that's not going to happen. I'm on right now because I was going to go ahead and post them early if everyone had their picks in, but we still lack picks from three players.

As everyone knows, I usually allow Picks provided the Picks have not yet been posted, but I don't want anyone to have an unfair advantage, so this should serve as notice that the due time for Picks is 10:00a.m. EST today and they MUST be sent by 10:30a.m.

Other than that, should be no blood, no foul, as I should be able to get the Picks up before the games start.

EDIT: Two to go. If they come in within the next twenty minutes, I'll post all the Picks right away.
