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.

When you combine ESPN,, CBS Sports, Yahoo!, and SI, you get 49 experts who published picks for the wild-card games.

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!)
  • 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.
