NFL Playoffs 2013-14, Round 3
Better last week, though not good enough. 3-1 picking winners, 2-2 against the spread, so so far I’m 4-4 and 2-4-2.
New England Patriots at Denver Broncos, Broncos favored by 5.5. If the Broncos make it shootout, they will win. However, the Pats are much better against the pass than the run, and their running games has become really good. So I expect both teams to run it quite a lot. So it will go under, and Pats pull it out. Patriots 28, Broncos 27.
San Francisco 49ers at Seattle Seahawks, Seahawks favored by 3.5. I like SF and think they’re right up there with all these teams. Given that defense, it wouldn’t shock me at all if they win it all. However, maybe it’s an illusion, but Seattle seems to matchup really well with them, and are a great home team. Expect a slugfest. A defensive TD (or close to it) could determine this one. Seahawks 19, 49ers 13.
