We posted our official, stone-cold lock picks for the four NFL Playoff games earlier. Now, let’s check out what the national experts think.NFL picks columns are fun and meaningless, but they do give you a good idea of what the conventional wisdom is at any given time.
Here’s who they picked straight-up, not against the spread (home teams first, favourite in bold):
- Texans vs. Bengals: 29 picked the Texans, 20 picked the Bengals
- Packers vs. Vikings: 48 picked the Packers, 1 picked the Vikings (go Kimberly Jones of NFL.com!)
- Ravens vs. Colts: 36 picked the Ravens, 13 picked the Colts
- Redskins vs. Seahawks: 12 picked the Redskins, 37 picked the Seahawks
So they like the favourites across the board, and the only semi-toss up is Texans-Bengals, according to the bigwigs.
