In Depth Analysis On The Online Betting Advice For The NFL Wildcard Round
Miami at Pittsburgh
When: Sunday, January 8, 2017 at 1:05 PM ET
Where: Heinz Field, Pittsburgh PA
Analysis: The Miami Dolphins (10-6 SU, 9-7 ATS) are 7-3 ATS in their last 10 games and went 5-3 ATS on the road this season. Pittsburgh has gone 5-4 ATS over their last nine games and 4-3 ATS at home.
The Dolphins are looking like a great pick to cover the spread as double-digit road dogs, seeing as how they’ve gone 4-1 ATS in their last five road games, 6-2 ATS in their last eight games against their AFC conference counterparts and 8-3 ATS in their last 11 games overall.
While the favored Steelers are playing in the comfy confines of Heinz Field, I also want to advise you that Pittsburgh is just 1-3-1 ATS in their last five home games, 0-3-2 ATS in their last five playoff games and an uninspiring 1-0-3 ATS in their last four games in the month of January. Last but not least, Miami is 4-1 ATS in their last five games against the Steelers. I guess this is why 63 percent of public bettors like the Fins to cover!
Oakland at Houston
When: Saturday, January 7, 2017 at 4:35 PM ET
Where: NRG Stadium, Houston, TX
Analysis: The Oakland Raiders (12-4 SU, 10-6 ATS) have compiled a bunch a glistening ATS statistics like their 4-0 ATS mark in their last four games following an SU loss and stellar 9-2 ATS mark in their last 11 road games.
The Houston Texans (9-7 SU, 6-9-1 ATS) are 1-3-1 ATS in their last five home games and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games overall. While the road team in this AFC rivalry is 4-1 ATS in the last five meetings, I’m going to advise you to remember that Houston finished the regular season ranked first in total defense, second against the pass and a respectable 11th in points allowed (20.5 ppg). Houston also went 7-1 SU at home this season and will face an Oakland Raiders team that has dropped two of its last three road games while ranking 20th in points allowed (24.1 ppg).
Detroit at Seattle
When: Saturday, January 7, 2017 at 8:15 PM ET
Where: CenturyLink Field
Analysis: The Detroit Lions struggled to score the ball during the regular season, ranking a modest 20th in scoring (21.6 ppg) and that doesn’t bode well against a Seattle Seahawks (10-5 SU, 8-8 ATS) team that finished the regular season ranked fifth in total defense, eighth against the pass, seventh against the run and a stellar third in points allowed (18.2 ppg).
The Lions are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 road games against a team with a winning home record. Conversely, the Seahawks are 4-1 ATS in their last five home games while the home team in this rivalry has gone 4-1 ATS in their last five meetings. Seattle went 7-1 SU at home this season while Detroit only managed to go 3-5 SU on the road.
NY Giants at Green Bay
When: Sunday, January 8, 2017 at 4:40 PM ET
Where: Lambeau Field, Green Bay, WI
Analysis: The Green Bay Packers have covered the spread in four straight wild card games and are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games. Unfortunately for Aaron Rodgers and company, they’ll be taking on a red-hot New York Giants team that has compiled a perfect 9-0 ATS mark in their last nine road playoff games while also going 4-0 ATS in their last four playoff games and 5-1 ATS in their last six games in the month of January.
Last but not least, the Giants are 4-0-1 ATS in their last five meetings against the Packers and 3-1-1 ATS in their last five road dates against Green Bay.
