We missed posting our picks yesterday as we were jetting back from a meeting up north.
Today we have a lock solid, "pay your Xmas Amex" pick.
The NFC wildcard home team favored by 7.5 points or more is 11-1. Today the Saints and Drew Brees fit that bill. Take the Saints over the hapless Vikes and give the 7.5. The next time Kirk Cousins wins a big game will be the first time.
The more intriguing game is Seattle at Philly. The Saints are up and down and in and out. Good when you think they are bad, and versa-vicea. One interesting fact is that Seattle plays well when flying east. The Eagles meanwhile are riding the shoulders of their own bedraggled QB Carson Wentz. Injured during their super bowl run, Wentz was disappointing during most of this year. And then he got hot in December. It's tough to bet against a home dog with a hot QB in the playoffs, and we advise to Holly-Go-Lightly on this one. But if forced to pick, we like the Seahawks to out fly the Eagles -1.5 and an easy over 45.
Coming tomorrow: Florida Supreme Court wheel of fortune.
