49ers -1 Panthers
I picked against the 49ers last week and they made me pay for it. As my mom always said you need to learn from your mistakes, and I am going to here. Cam Newton has no playoff experience, Kaepernick has never lost a playoff game. This game will be an absolute defensive battle like their previous match up in week 10 matchup, which the Panthers won 10-9. The Panthers held Kaepernick to only 91 passing yards that game that will not happen again. Kaepernick has been playing well of late and I expect that to continue against Carolina. And if Kaepernick cannot beat you with his arm he will beat you with his legs. Although Kaepernick has played 2 fewer playoff games then Barry Sanders, he already has more rushing yards. 49ers win 14-10. 49ers cover the spread, take the under (45).
Seahawks -8 Saints
The Saints got absolutely demolished on Monday Night Football against the Seahawks, in Seattle. History will repeat itself here. Although the Saints won a road game in Philadelphia last week against the Eagles they are still a poor road team. And the Eagles were not good team in general. Their defense was horrible and they barely snuck by Kyle Orton and the Cowboys to make it into the playoffs. The Seahawks will beat the Saints badly with a final score of 31-17. Seattle covers the spread, take the over (45).
Broncos -9.5 Chargers
Now listen to me for a second. The Chargers have already beaten Denver in Denver this year. The Broncos just lost their best defensive player Von Miller for year. The Broncos already struggled on defense when they had Miller. Denver has the 27th ranked pass defense in the league, and Philip Rivers and this San Diego Offense has really been clicking lately. Cinderella will get one step closer to the ball after beating the Denver Broncos 31-28. The Chargers will cover the spread at the very least, and take the over (54.5)
