A Close Look At The AFC Wild Card Betting Odds, Predictions & TV Schedule

Matchup: Baltimore Ravens at Pittsburgh Steelers
Date: Jan. 3, 2015 
Start Time: 8:15 p.m. ET 
Location: Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
Stadium: Heinz Field
TV Info: NBC
Radio:  Baltimore Vs  Pittsburgh
Point Spread: Steelers -3.5
Game Total: 44.5

The Pittsburgh Steelers (11-5 SU, 9-7 ATS) may be without starting running back Le’Veon Bell, but they’ve still got quarterback Ben Roethlisberger at the helm. Big Ben is coming into this AFC Wild Card matchup off arguably the best regular season of his career. The Steelers have never lost a home playoff game to Baltimore and they won’t this time either!

I’m not real impressed with the Baltimore Ravens (10-6 SU, 7-8-1 ATS) for a number of reasons. However, let me just say that Baltimore beat a quintet of patsies in taking down Tennessee, New Orleans, Miami, Jacksonville and Cleveland over their final nine games to reach the postseason and I think they’re going to e in trouble against a ‘real’ team like the Steelers in this one!

I like the Steelers to improve on their stellar 12-4 SU mark in their last 16 home games against Baltimore while narrowly covering the spread!

My AFC Wild Card Betting Pick: Pittsburgh -3 Points

Matchup: Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts
Date: Jan. 4, 2015 
Start Time: 1:05 p.m. ET 
Location: Indianapolis, Indiana
Stadium: Lucas Oil Stadium
TV Info: CBS
Radio:  Cincinnati Vs  Indianapolis
Point Spread: Colts -3.5
Game Total: N/A

A whopping 61 percent of the betting public likes the Indianapolis Colts (11-5 SU, 10-5-1 ATS) to win and cover the spread in this AFC Wild Card matchup, but I’m going ‘the other way’ with my pick on this intriguing AFC Wild Card matchup.

I know the Colts spanked the Cincinnati Bengals (10-5-1 SU, 8-7-1 ATS) 27-0 on Oct. 19 as a 3-point home favorite, but the Bengals are a classic ‘Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde’ kind of team that can both, beat – and lose – to any team in the league.

Sure, this isn’t real conducive to winning consistently, but this is just one game and I believe the Bengals are extremely hungry to get their first postseason win of the Andy Dalton era.

You may not know it, but Indianapolis quarterback Andrew Luck has tossed at least one pick in every Colts loss this season while throwing multiple interceptions in three of those losses.

My AFC Wild Card Betting Pick: Cincinnati Bengals +4.5 Points
