Wayne Root's NFL PLAYOFFS GAME OF THE YEAR, Sunday
Pinnacle New Orleans
Stop waving the pennants, put them back on the wall, no need for pompons, this is not college football where revenge plays a vital role. There’s a reason that the Saints destroyed the Eagles week’s ago. So here’s what we have. The public screaming for revenge. The public getting on the Nick Foles bandwagon. The public remembering last season and want it to happen again. The public living a “feels good” storyline. But the Oddsmakers are not buying it. They opened the line high and the public fell all over it and are betting the Eagles causing the pointspread to fall in our favor. The sportsbooks actually need the Saints this week. Almost unheard of for them to need a popular home favorite. Look for Brees and company to be fresh and a ton of touchdowns from him.
NFL - 3* Patriots (-4) - Sunday
Edges - Patriots: 7-0 SU and 5-1-1 ATS home off a win versus foes playing in 3rd straight road game, including 5-0-1 ATS in games in which New England is not a double-digit favorite; and QB Brady 19-3 SU home in the playoffs, including 8-0 SU and 6-1-1 ATS against foes coming off a double-digit win … Chargers: QB Rivers 0-7 SU and 1-6 ATS versus Brady, including 0-6 SUATS when not taking double-digit … We cement the call with this from our well-oiled machine: rested home teams in NFL Divisional round of the playoffs that lost SU as a favorite in the playoffs last year are 22-2 SU and 18-5 ATS since 1980, including 16-0 ATS when facing a non-division foe that won 11 or fewer games last season. With that we recommend a strong 3* play on New England. Thank you and good luck as always
