NFL Playoffs Week 1 Football Bets – Final Card

I won my first Boxing Bet posted on this sports betting blog last night! Yeah, it was a huge favorite, but a win is a win...

Anyway, Football Bets below. I can't believe I bet all four games this week, but I think I found a winner in each... Let's hope :O)

Washington +2 -115
Washington enters the postseason with five consecutive wins (and covers against the spread), more than any other playoff contender. AND they are healthy. Tampa Bay will be without wide out Michael Clayton, and should struggle on offense.
Washington will win this game, but there is no value left on the money line.

Washington Redskins/Tampa Bay Buccaneers Total Points OVER 36.5 -105
When I said Tampa will struggle on offense, I didn’t mean they would die. I like the over on this one on which looks to be a clear day in the 50’s down in Florida.

Jacksonville Jaguars +7.5 -108
New England is not that good. They have lost 6 of 9 games this season to teams with a winning record. They have come on strong the in December, but still managed to lose a game to Miami last week. That said, they are the defending Super Bowl champs, playing a southern team @ 8pm in New England... But I don't see them covering.

Carolina Panthers (+2.5) +105
While these teams are evenly matched, Carolina has the better quarterback in Jake Delhomme and wins the injury lottery over the Big Blue who has major concerns at linebacker. New York will also be fielding Jeremy Shockey, who’s about 75% and currently not much of a risk.

Pittsburgh Steelers -3 +102 NFL Free Pick of the Week
