2012 NFL Playoff Odds: AFC Wild Card Weekend: Steelers vs. Broncos
As the Broncos had the worst record of any playoff teams at 8-8, it hardly seems fair that the 12-4 Steelers should have to hit the road to face them this weekend. The Denver Broncos are lucky they were in the AFC West, while unfortunate for the Steelers, the Ravens inched them out by having more total points to take the AFC North Division in a tiebreak.
With arguably the best defense in the NFL this year, the Steelers allowed fewer total and passing yards than any other team. This spells trouble for Tebow and his below average throwing arm; however, never count out Tim Tebow and his lucky streak this year.
Ben Roethlisberger is looking to champion his team to his 3rd Superbowl ring and the odds are in his favor this weekend in Denver. Bovada sportsbook has the Steelers as the odds favorite, with a 9 point spread to cover and 11/1 odds on them winning the superbowl.
As we've learned this season, don't count out Tebow. Regular season records and odds go out the door during the NFL playoffs - we all remember the Seahawks v. Saints of last year!!
2012 NFL Playoff Odds: NFC Wild Card Weekend: Lions vs. Saints
The Detroit Lions have come a long way since their winless 2008 season and their 2-14 2009 season. The last time the Lions made the playoffs was over a decade ago in 1999; however, this playoff birth maybe short lived as they face Drew Brees and the red hot New Orleans Saints.
Bovada Sportsbook has the Saints as heavy odds favorite with a -11 point spread. With Drew Brees at the helm, with his single season passing record of 5,476 yards, it's going to be an uphill battle for the resilient Lions from Motown. While the Lions are also coming into Wild Card Weekend on a 4 game hot streak, Drew Brees and his Saints receivers are looking to regain their championship from 2009.
The Lions are hoping to do just what the Seattle Seahawks did to the Saints last year in the NFC Wild Card - come in as the underdog and leave winners.
