    here are the games ... much tougher to pick than the opening round

    Chicago -8.5 over Seattle
    Chargers -5.0 over Patriots
    Saints -5.0 over Eagles
    Ravens -3.5 over Colts

    All home teams favored ...
    couple things of note ... Marty still coaching Chiefs ... Bears defense is banged up ... Rex still QB in Chicago ...

    Chicago -8.5 over Seattle: I don't think there's one team in this postseason worthy of spotting 8.5
    Chargers -5.0 over Patriots: Tomlinson more than enough to overcome Marty.
    Saints -5.0 over Eagles: Eagles feel like a team peaking at the right time.
    Ravens -3.5 over Colts : I like the Colts outright.

    Seattle, San Diego, New Orleans and Indy.

    But I was taking Ohio State on Monday, so...

    Colts . . . LOVE that defense at home.
    Eagles . . . no reason why they can't win outright.
    Patriots . . . I'll take the points going against a quarterback in his first playoff game.
    Seahawks . . . Maybe neither team scores 20, so I'll want the points on my side.

    If you plan on covering that game in Indy, you'll be very disappointed.. and possibly fired.

    Anyway, here we go...
    Ravens.. KC held Peyton Manning in check for three and a half quarters with the bare minimum of help from the offense. Peyton doesn't like the 3-4... and we'd all agree Baltimore has just a bit more defensive talent than KC does.

    Saints... I think the spread is a bit high, but what the hell. If the atmosphere for the Atlanta game was crazy, this one is going to be nucking futs.

    Seattle ... I don't trust Rex Grossman. Not one bit. Plus, it'll be interesting to see Seattle this time around when Shaun Alexander is healthy.

    Patriots ... Marty vs. Bill... um, advantage Bill. Philip vs Tom... advantage Tom. And that's all I have to say about that.

    I'm not a gambler, and don't know much about lines and parlays (sp?), but if New Orleans wins the Super Bowl, it's proof that all the global-warming nutjobs are wrong. ;D
  8. Seahawks cover, but Bears win
    Colts and Patriots cover and win outright
    Saints in a rout

    Bears cover (take the under)
    Patriots cover (take the over)
    Saints cover (I chose 30-9, but don't know the over-under)
    Ravens cover (take the under)

    Seahawks cover and win outright thanks to Grossman

    Chargers cover -- a lot of the Brady mystique went down in Denver last season.

    Eagles cover and win outright -- too much emotion in New Orleans, too much experience in Philly

    Colts cover and win outright -- defenses win championships, but you do need to score as well. The Ravens defense won't be able to hold Indy down the entire game.

    Pats plus five is the best overlay I've seen in a long, long, time. I believe it's the most points New England has gotten for a game since Super Bowl XXXVI against the Rams.
