An exciting 2013-14 NFL Wild Card weekend gave football enthusiasts two games which came down to last-play field goals, a 28-point comeback, and Andy Dalton. Okay, it’s not all Dalton’s fault. A.J. Green was dropping passes, Giovani Bernard couldn’t hold on to the football, and the offensive line was completely useless.

It’s almost impossible to expect the divisional playoffs to give us as much entertainment. At least two of the games could turn into blowouts. Of course, anything can happen during the playoffs. Maybe the New Orleans Saints and San Francisco 49ers get revenge from their regular-season losses. Can the San Diego Chargers beat the “indestructible” Denver Broncos for the second time this season?

Here are some NFL picks against the spread for the 2013-14 Divisional Playoffs. Spread winners with (- or +) next to team name.  Straight winners listed at end of each game. All lines from as of Jan. 7, 2014.

Team at Team (Winner:)
New Orleans Saints (+7.5) at Seattle Seahawks (Winner: Seahawks)
Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots (-7) (Winner: Patriots)
San Francisco 49ers (-2) at Carolina Panthers (Winner: 49ers)
