    Time for a twist on the NFL playoff predictions.

    Everyone who wants to participate will get 200 "beans"

    Posted are the four wild-card matchups, with spreads, money line (team to win the game by any margin) and over-under.

    You can apply your beans however you want.

    Spreads and over-under will be a 1/1 payout.

    No teasers or parlays.

    Let's see who is best at putting their "money" where the mouth is.

    Falcons (-2) at Cardinals
    Money line: Falcons, -130; Cardinals +110
    O/U: 51 1/2

    Colts (-1) at Chargers
    Money line: Colts -120; Chargers +105
    O/U: 51 1/2

    Ravens (-3) at Dolphins
    Money line: Ravens -190; Dolphins +160
    O/U: 37 1/2

    Eagles (-3) at Vikings
    Money line: Eagles -175; Vikings +155
    O/U: 42 1/2

    Deadline for all games in wild-card round is Noon Saturday.
    You do not have to wager all 200 beans.

    50 on Dolphins +160 to win (to get 130 back)

    Money line always confuses the shit out of me. So I could just bet the spread and/or the over/under, right?

    Money line = Dolphins are +160 means you bet 100 to win 160, or as Simon did, bet 50 to win 80.

    Ravens -190 means bet 190 to win 100.

    Can I do a three-team parlay? Or a five-way teaser with spreads and over-under?

    Just kidding.

    I also will put 100 beans on the Colts -1, and 100 on the Ravens -3.

    Is this going to be going throughout the playoffs?
    Btw, this is a very fun idea, I'm looking forward to it.
