JZN NFL Predictions vs. Spread: 2012 Divisional Playoffs

Picks for the divisional round of the playoffs

New Orleans Saints at San Francisco 49ers (+4)
Denver Broncos (+14) at New England Patriots
Houston Texans (+9) at Baltimore Ravens
New York Giants at Green Bay Packers (-9)

*The Tennessee Titans held the New Orleans Saints to nine points through three quarters when they met in Week 14. The biggest difference between the 49ers and Titans is that the 49ers have a running game that can shorten the game against a weak Saints' run defense. The 49ers defense is also better. 27-17 49ers.

*The New England Patriots hadn't lost a regular-season home game with Tom Brady as the starting quarterback from 2006 until the New York Giants beat them earlier this season. Yet, a loss to the Denver Broncos would be three consecutive home playoff losses. I just don't see that happening. Broncos might keep it close though...I'm not giving 14 points when Tebow is involved.

*I figure there has to be at least one road winner in the playoffs this season. So I'll just side with Houston for the heck of it.
