Prisco's NFL Super Wild Card Weekend picks: Giants exact revenge on Vikings; Cowboys finally beat Tom Brady

Week 18 is constantly hard when it pertains to choosing NFL video games. There is a lot unpredictability regarding who is playing and who is not. So I can utilize that as a reason for my best choices fiasco recently as part of the “Pick Six NFL” podcast.

I went 1-4, my worst week of the season. What a method to close the routine season. That dropped my record to 55-44-5, which is still strong, however the last 2 weeks have actually eliminated me in my race to beat R.J. White. Will Brinson, the host of the podcast, was long back out of the running.

As for my specialist choices, I went 9-7 ATS and 10-6 directly. That brings my record to 129-133-9 ATS and 169-101-1 directly. That implies it will take the playoffs to get me over .500 ATS, which I prepare to do.

Let’s get a sweep of the wild-card weekend video games. That’s right, 6-0. Let’s go.

Saturday, 4:30 p.m. ET (Fox)

Featured Game | San Francisco 49ers vs. Seattle Seahawks

The 49ers beat the Seahawks two times throughout the routine season, when with novice Brock Purdy beginning. He hasn’t lost a start yet, however things alter in the playoffs. The strength increases. I believe Kyle Shanahan will discover a method to make it simple on Purdy, even in the postseason. The 49ers defense will be all over Geno Smith. This will get awful. 

Pick: 49ers 28, Seahawks 17

Featured Game | Jacksonville Jaguars vs. Los Angeles Chargers

This is a video game including 2 of the very best young quarterback in the league. Justin Herbert and Trevor Lawrence will both be playing in their very first championship game, however I do not believe that will matter. The Jaguars controlled the Chargers in blowing them out in Week 3, however this will be a lot better. Both passing video games ought to have wedding days, so it ought to be a shootout. Look for the Jaguars to make one more huge play to win it as Lawrence wins the very first of his fights with Herbert.  

Pick: Jaguars 34, Chargers 31

Sunday, 1 p.m. ET (CBS, Paramount+)

Does Tua Tagovailoa play? If not, who does? The quarterback circumstance remains in flux for Miami, however I do not believe it matters who plays. The Dolphins played well in losing to the Bills late in the season, however that will not hold true here. Josh Allen and the offense will illuminate the Dolphins defense, while the Bills will restrict the Miami huge plays. The Bills will be carrying on. 

Pick: Bills 34, Dolphins 21

Sunday, 4:30 p.m. ET (Fox)

Featured Game | Minnesota Vikings vs. New York Giants

These 2 used Christmas Eve, and the Vikings required a 61-yard basket by Greg Joseph to win it. The Giants got 448 lawns of offense that day and most likely ought to have won the video game. But they didn’t. Now it’s a roadway championship game, which will be a difficulty. Even so, I believe Brian Daboll will benefit from a bad Minnesota defense. This one ought to be high scoring, as Kirk Cousins and Justin Jefferson will make some plays, however it will be the Giants that win it with a late basket this time to advance. 

Pick: Giants 30, Vikings 28

Sunday, 8:20 p.m. ET (NBC)

Featured Game | Cincinnati Bengals vs. Baltimore Ravens

The huge problem here is whether Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson can play. I will make the presumption that he does play here. He definitely will be rusty coming off missing out on 5 weeks, however he’s much better than the option of him not playing. The Bengals have actually duped 8 straight triumphes, not counting the canceled video game, and they have actually looked every bit as excellent as the group that went to the Super Bowl in 2015. They battered the Ravens recently, however that does not matter. What will matter is Joe Burrow having a special day. The Bengals will proceed. 

Pick: Bengals 26, Ravens 19

Monday, 8:15 p.m. ET (ABC/ESPN)

Featured Game | Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs. Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys looked terrible in losing their ending to the Commanders, however actually what were they betting with the Giants resting gamers versus the Eagles? Nothing. So remove that video game, even if Dak Prescott looked bad. The Bucs entered the playoffs with a losing record, and they have problems. It’s simple to sit here and state Tom Brady will turn it on in the playoffs. But I do not see it. Not versus that Cowboys front. Prescott will play much better for the Dallas offense to get them into the next round.

Pick: Cowboys 27, Bucs 21
