Everyday I’m Russell’n

Even with Marshawn Lynch likely to return this weekend, the Seahawks will need to rely on Russell Wilson’s arm in order to pull off a victory against the Carolina Panthers. Here are my picks for the Saturday-Sunday Divisional Round playoff slate:

preferred-play

Top Implied Totals (in order): Cardinals, Patriots, Panthers, Packers, Seahawks, Chiefs.

The line was scratched for Steelers/Broncos but the Broncos are listed as seven point favorites.

Note: Antonio Brown is listed as questionable and he would emerge as viable in all formats assuming he passes the NFL’s concussion protocol.
