Seven of the 12 teams in action during NFL Super Wild Card Weekend 2023 didn’t advance to the postseason last year. Several of the teams don’t have much of a recent playoff resume at all, which could make them dicey options to back in your Wild Card Weekend NFL bets. Should you ride a hot team like the Jacksonville Jaguars at home against the Los Angeles Chargers, or a Miami Dolphins team that will be without quarterback Tua Tagovailoa once again? The Dolphins are getting 13.5 points in the latest NFL odds from Caesars Sportsbook, but the question is whether they can come through for your Wild Card Weekend NFL picks. All of the Wild Card Weekend NFL lines are listed below and SportsLine’s advanced computer model has all the NFL betting advice and predictions you need to make the best Wild Card Weekend NFL picks now.
The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up well over $7,000 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception. The model enters Super Wild Card Weekend in the 2023 NFL playoffs on an incredible 161-113 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season. It is also on a 15-6 roll on top-rated NFL picks since Week 7 of this season.
The model ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past six years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94% of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.
Top Wild Card Weekend NFL predictions
One of the model’s strongest Wild Card Weekend picks is that the AFC’s No. 6 seed, the Baltimore Ravens (+8.5), cover the spread on the road against the No. 3 Bengals. The Ravens tried not to show their cards ahead of the matchup in Week 18, with Anthony Brown at quarterback, Kenyan Drake at running back and Isaiah Likely at tight end. The offense could be dramatically different with the return of running back J.K. Dobbins and tight end Mark Andrews.
When the two sides played for the first time this season on October 9, the Ravens outgained the Bengals on offense 325 to 291 and won 19-17. That was with a full complement of Baltimore players on offense, including quarterback Lamar Jackson, who will sit this week with a knee injury. From Weeks 15 to 17, the Ravens defense allowed just 505 passing yards with two touchdowns and should be in decent form against a familiar Cincinnati offense. The model predicts they cover in just over 50% of simulations. See which other teams to pick here.
