NFL Postseason Week 2 Betting: Green Bay Packers @ San Francisco 49ers Pick and Prediction

PackThe Green Bay Packers will travel across the country to take on the San Francisco 49ers. Green Bay won the NFC North over Minnesota and Chicago, while the 49ers were winners of the NFC West. The Packers won their postseason opener last week over Minnesota, which came just a week after losing to them, to allow the Vikings into the postseason. The 49ers had a bye in the first round of postseason play, and finished the regular season with a win over the Arizona Cardinals. These two teams are seeded 2nd and 3rd in the NFC.

The Green Bay Packers were one of the top offensive teams in all of the NFL in 2012. The Packers scored 433 points in their 11-5 season. Aaron Rodgers was near the top in most passing categories, including over 4,200 yards and 39 touchdowns. Rodgers top receiver was Randall Cobb, with 84 receptions, while James Jones led the team with 14 touchdowns. The Packers started the season 2-3, and one of those losses was to Seattle on a last second place. Green Bay would love some revenge in the NFC title game.

The San Francisco 49ers would like a repeat of what happened during week one of the season. The 49ers went into Green Bay and downed the Packers. San Francisco has been mostly up this season, but a loss and a tie to St. Louis had many scratching their heads all season long. Collin Kaepernick has taken over the reigns at quarterback, and found the end zone 10 times via the pass and 5 times as a runner. The 49ers lost just one game at home all year, and that was to the New York Giants.

Free Prediction and Pick

This should be a fun football game. The 49ers have a great defense, and a young quarterback who is exciting at times. The Packers have the great offense, led by a future hall of famer in Aaron Rodgers. The Packers are coming off a season where they were upset in the first round of the postseason. Two seasons ago, the Packers won the Super Bowl. We like Green Bay to use a couple field goals to beat the 49ers in this game, including one to win the game.

Prediction: Green Bay Packers 30-27

In what should be an excellent postseason game in the National Football League, the San Francisco 49ers are a field goal favorite. We like these two teams to go at it with everything they got. Both teams have an outside chance of hosting the NFL title game, if Seattle can somehow come away with the upset win over Atlanta. We like the Packers to use a game winning drive, on the road to down the 49ers. We will take Green Bay +3 in this game.

Pick: Green Bay Packers +3


NFL Postseason Week 2 Betting: Seattle Seahawks @ Atlanta Falcons Pick and Prediction

ATLThe Seattle Seahawks will make a trip South to Atlanta, to take on the Falcons. These two teams are playing for the right to go to the NFC title game next weekend. Both teams come into the game red-hot. Seattle went 11-5 during the regular season, and finished second place in the NFC West. The Atlanta Falcons have the top seed in the NFC, after winning the South Division with a 13-3 record. The Seahawks are coming off a win over the Redskins last week.

Pete Carroll and his crew are red-hot. The Seahawks ended regular season with a string of wins, and the win over Washington was after trailing the game 14-0. Seattle is led by a rookie quarterback in Russell Wilson. The former Wisconsin Badgers playcaller threw for 3,100 yards and 26 touchdowns this season. The running back, Marshawn Lynch had a great season, running the football over 310 times for nearly 1,600 yards and 11 touchdowns. The Seahawks outscored opponents during the regular season by a total of 167 points.

For the Falcons, they played consistently well most of the season. Atlanta’s three losses came to divisional foes, all on the road. The first loss was to New Orleans, followed by losses at Carolina and then the regular season finale at Tampa Bay. The Falcons are led by quarterback Matt Ryan, who tossed for over 4,700 yards and 32 touchdowns. Atlanta’s running game was anchored by Michael Turner, with 800 yards and 10 touchdowns. The Falcons, much like Seattle outscored their opponents by a ton. Atlanta scored 419 points and allowed 299.

It’s kind of crazy to think that the Seahawks and Falcons are playing for the right to get to the NFC title game. For Atlanta, they know that if they win, they will remain at home. Seattle, who has not had a ton of success in the past are looking to emerge as a NFL power. The Seahawks are red hot, but in this game, it appears the Falcons will be able to slow that down. We like the Atlanta Falcons to come away with a win in this one. The game will be close, but Atlanta finds a way to win the game.

Prediction: Atlanta Falcons 24-20

The Seattle Seahawks are underdogs. That, in it’s own is a bit of a surprise, only because of how well they have been playing. Atlanta has been a favorite for most of the season, and done quite well against the spread, especially in home games. We look for Seattle and Atlanta to go toe-to-toe, but in the end, the Falcons defense forces Wilson to throw a bad pass, which will be the deciding factor in the game. We are taking Atlanta -3.

Pick: Atlanta Falcons -3


NFL Postseason Week 1 Betting: Seattle Seahawks @ Washington Redskins Pick and Prediction

WashThe Seattle Seahawks and Washington Redskins will get together on Sunday afternoon in the NFC Wildcard game. The Seahawks and Redskins have both been pleasant surprises this season.

The Redskins won their final six games of the season, and won the NFC East with a 10-6 record. Both teams come into the game with rookie quarterbacks. The Redskins have Robert Griffin III and the Seahawks play Russell Wilson.

Seattle has been red-hot as of late. Late by head coach Pete Carroll, the Seahawks have scored 193 points during their five game winning streak.

The Seahawks running back Marshawn Lynch was one of the best all season long with 1,590 yards and 11 touchdowns. Seattle has been one of the top defenses in the league, allowing just 306 yards per game.

For Washington, after their slow start of 3-6, including 3 straight losses, they won their final six games and won the division. In the final game of the regular season, the Redskins scored 28 points against the Cowboys for the win.

We predict this game will be one of the best in the first round of games. This is the final game of four, and the winner of this game will round out the final 8 in the NFL. The Redskins will be jacked up in this game, due to playing at home. It’s tough to slow down a Seattle team that is red-hot, but the Redskins may be even hotter. We look for the home crowd to be a huge factor in this game, and the Redskins will come away with a win.

Prediction: Washington Redskins 24-20

It’s rare for a road team to be the favorite on the road. In this case, it is also true. The Seattle Seahawks are favored by a field goal in this game. This game will feature two great young quarterbacks. Look for mistakes to happen, but both teams will stay within their game. In the end, we expect the upset to happen. We are betting the home team, Washington Redskins +3 over Seattle.

Pick: Washington Redskins +3
