The NFL regular season closed with a bang last weekend as the playoff line-up became etched in stone. With the presentation of the post-season schedule comes a plethora of online sports bettors seeking out the best bets, graciously catered by SportsUntapped.com as the site presents NFL playoff wild card round lines and predictions.
Online PR News – 05-January-2011 – – Sliema, Malta – Last weekend marked an unbelievable end to the regular season of the Nation Football League for 2010/11. As the Seattle Seahawks drove the final nail into the coffin of the St. Louis Rams, becoming the first team to ever realize playoff contention with a losing record, the post-season line-up was branded into the hide of this year’s playoff contenders.
As the wild cards prepare for the long road ahead, online sports bettors are seeking out the most reliable picks for the weekend’s impending crusades on the compact turf. SportsUntapped.com has been presenting NFL betting picks throughout the season to countless sports wagering enthusiasts, and the resolve of its expert team has tightened up all the more with the onset of the post-season.
SportsUntapped.com is proud to present NFL playoff lines and predictions for the first week of the 2011 finale. Football fans and bettors have four match ups to look forward to this weekend as eight wild card teams take to the 100-yard battlefield to fight for an extended future in the playoffs, setting their subconscious sights on a propitious fantasy of Super Bowl proportions.
The action begins Saturday at 4:30pm ET as the New Orleans Saints take on the Seahawks in Seattle. The phenomenal story here is that the Seahawks are the first team in the history of the NFL to make it to the playoffs with a losing record, having finished 7-9. The defending champion Saints should get the obligatory nod on game day, however, Qwest Field is known to present a rough obstacle for the away team, and Drew Brees will certainly have a hard time communicating with the offense over the extreme crowd noise. The potential loss of both leading RBs isn’t going to help New Orleans either.
At 8pm ET, the Indianapolis Colts - who have struggled throughout the season but finally pulled it together to win their last 4 games, resulting in an unexpected playoff berth - will face off with the New York Jets. With the 4th highest ranking rushing offense in the league, opposing the 25th worst rushing defense of the Colts, Rex Ryan’s Jets are expected to run the field for much of the evening. Can the Colts keep up their victorious reign of the last month, or will the Jets take flight and leave Indy coughing in the dust?
Sunday’s match-ups include the Baltimore Ravens and Kansas City Chiefs at 1pm ET, followed by the Green Bay Packers and Philadelphia Eagles at 4pm. The Chiefs have maintained a less than satisfactory record since the start of the 2007 season, but seem to have finally turned things around with a playoff berth this year, while the Baltimore Ravens take yet another shot at the road to Super Bowl glory. Green Bay has played pretty well this season, but without the consistency fans would like to seem from them. Philadelphia, on the other hand, has seen new life breathed into it as Michael Vick took the helm; a dangerous weapon on the ground or through the air.
