Free NFL Picks: 49ers at Seahawks Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 1/16/2014
Is this the greatest final four in the NFL playoffs this century? I'd definitely make the argument that it is indeed as it's pretty clearly the best four teams remaining -- and the four preseason Super Bowl favorites. You have the greatest individual rivalry of this generation in the AFC Championship Game as future Hall of Famers Peyton Manning and Tom Brady face off for the 15th time and perhaps last in the playoffs with both QBs on the downside of their unbelievable careers.

Free NFL Picks: 49ers at Panthers Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 1/8/2014
In my opinion, no game is more evenly matched in the NFL's divisional round than the 49ers at Panthers on Sunday, and that's indicative in that this line is the only one under a touchdown as of this writing. But the teams really are mirror images. They are very physical on both sides of the ball and would just as soon pound the ball on the ground than throw it.

Free NFL Picks: Saints at Eagles Playoff Odds and Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 1/2/2014
Tough picking which game to preview on wild-card weekend. You have the Chiefs at Colts, a rematch of a game won rather surprisingly easily by Indianapolis 23-7 in Kansas City on Dec. 22. The Chargers visit a Cincinnati team that looks unstoppable at home; San Diego is incredibly lucky to be there. If Kansas City kicker Ryan Succop hadn't missed a potential 41-yard winning field goal last weekend in San Diego, the Bolts, who won in overtime, wouldn't be in the playoffs (Pittsburgh would).

Free NFL Picks: Ravens at Bengals Week 17 Odds
by Alan Matthews - 12/24/2013
The Baltimore Ravens are the only team in the NFL to win a playoff game each of the past five seasons, but that streak is in major jeopardy on Sunday should Baltimore lose at Cincinnati. The Bengals have been dominant at home this season and also have something to play for despite having clinched the AFC North.

Free NFL Picks: Patriots at Ravens Week 16 Odds
by Alan Matthews - 12/18/2013
The NFL really got it right in Week 16 as there are only three games that involve two teams with no playoff chances: Tampa Bay at St. Louis, Cleveland at the NY Jets and Tennessee at Jacksonville. I was planning to preview the flexed prime-time game between the Bears and Eagles in Philly, but I opted for Patriots-Ravens for a few reasons. First, the Eagles might not have anything to play for. Should Dallas win early Sunday in Washington, the Week 17 Eagles at Cowboys game will be for the NFC East no matter what Philly does against Chicago.

Free NFL Picks: Chargers at Broncos Week 15 Odds
by Alan Matthews - 12/10/2013
I'm assuming NFL players don't celebrate when players on other teams get hurt, but I don't think the Broncos are all that heartbroken that the Patriots lost Pro Bowl tight end Rob Gronkowski to a season-ending injury on Sunday. That obviously hugely weakens New England, which is a game behind Denver for the top seed in the AFC but holds the tiebreaker. Gronk's loss makes it more likely that New England loses this week at Miami or next at Baltimore, so Denver is looking good for that top seed.

Free NFL Picks: Texans at Jaguars Odds for Week 14
by Alan Matthews - 12/3/2013
They say the NFL is ratings gold, that the matchup doesn't matter and people will watch because it's football. I'm guessing that will be put to the test in a big way this Thursday night when Houston visits Jacksonville, a matchup of teams a combined 5-19. It will still probably win the night because sports-wise there's not much else.

Free NFL Picks: Broncos at Chiefs Odds and Week 13 Predictions
by Alan Matthews - 11/27/2013
It's pretty simple for the Denver Broncos on Sunday: Beat Kansas City for the second time in three weeks and the Broncos will have a great shot at the top seed in the AFC for the second year in a row -- not that it did much good for Peyton Manning and Co. last year. At worst, a win will all but assure Denver the second seed in the AFC, the first round off and at least one home game.

Free NFL Picks: Saints at Falcons Week 12 Odds
by Alan Matthews - 11/19/2013
The New Orleans Saints (8-2) look pretty invincible at home this season, much like they were in 2011, but very ordinary on the road. Thus, it seems vital that at worst the Saints get the NFC's No. 2 seed and guarantee themselves at least one playoff game at the Superdome. With the red-hot Carolina Panthers on their tail in the NFC South, the Saints can ill afford to get caught in a trap game at Atlanta on Thursday night as the Saints visit current NFC No. 1 Seattle in Week 13 and then host Carolina the following week.

Free NFL Picks: Jets at Bills Odds for Week 11
by Alan Matthews - 11/13/2013
I'm well aware that the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs visit the Denver Broncos in the game of the week on Sunday. However, I'll be focusing on the Broncos, no doubt, next week when they visit New England in another Peyton Manning-Tom Brady matchup, so I'm not going to do Denver now. Really, the second meeting between the Chiefs and Broncos is likely to be more important anyway.
