Regular season concluded with a final Week 17 in the NFL. I finished with 15-1 record on my Week 17 NFL picks. That’s 159-96-1 (.623) overall for the 2013 regular season, down a few percentage points compared to previous two regular seasons, 2011 (0.660) & 2012 (0.654). Here is a chart with weekly percentages on my NFL picks for 2013 regular season.
What’s left for me is to pick winners for 11 playoff games, Super Bowl included. It all starts with 4 Wild Card playoff games. In 1990 the NFL expanded its playoff system and went with 12 instead of 10 playoff teams for the first time. Since then, home teams are 61-31 (0.663) in Wild Card games and 7-1 (0.875) since 2011.
Obviously, playing at home in the postseason is an important advantage, but I’m picking 2 road teams to win this weekend. Here are my picks for all 4 Wild card playoff games.
