The NFL season enters its post-season phase with two matches on Saturday and two more on Sunday.
In this post we’re going to concentrate on today’s games, starting with the Indianapolis Colts‘ trip to the Lone Star state to take on the Houston Texans.
Often home advantage is worth quite a bit in these playoff matches, but we’re going to side with the Colts. Both teams won away in the regular season in tight games, but the Colts ended the season with four straight wins, including a winner takes all clash with the Titans. The Texans, on the other hand, ended 2-2 in their last four games. We’ll take the team in form despite being slightly odds against, and think there’s a chance they could win in style.
The late game tonight sees the Seattle Seahawks travel to the Dallas Cowboys. Seattle have looked average away from home (4-4 this season), while the Cowboys have won seven of their eight home fixtures.
To balance the conservative suggestion of a win double we’re also going to advise a touchdown scorer double.
We are siding with the Colts but note that Texans quarterback Deshaun Watson has scored three touchdowns in his last two games. We’ll take a chance he scores again. In the second game again we’re siding with the Cowboys but we’ll go with talisman Seahawks wide receiver Doug Baldwin to score a touchdown during the game.
Colts and Cowboys to win as a double, 1 pt, approximately 5/2, widely available
Watson (Texans) and Baldwin (Seahawks) to both score a touchdown anytime as a double, 1 point, at approximately 9/1, widely available
