Mark My Words: Here's how I'd bet the second round of the NFL playoff games, and why:

PITTSBURGH -3 over Baltimore - The road team won each regular season matchup by 3 points this season. Baltimore has been particularily strong on the road all season long, including last week at Kansas City against a strong homefield advantage for the Chiefs. Pittsburgh is as tough as a place in the league as there is to play. I'm going with my gut  on this one and saying Pittsburgh covers.

ATLANTA -2 over Green Bay - Matt Ryan and the Falcons just don't lose at home, but if Green Bay is able to negate Michael "Burner" Turner and the Atlanta running game, things could get interesting. I'm not betting on this game.

Seattle +10 over CHICAGO - I can't believe that one of these two horrible teams will be in the NFC Championship Game. When in doubt, take the points.


NEW ENGLAND -8.5 over New York Jets - While the Jets and the Patriots have split in the Rex Ryan era with the home team winning every game, New England has won their two games at Foxborough decisively.
