Who Does Brent Have on Wild-Card Weekend? / SuperContest Gold Winner Kept A Secret

Vegas Stats & Information Network
In his column this week, Brent Musburger writes:

The best advice I can give you for wild-card weekend is pick winners, but don’t get so obsessed about the lines.

Steve Makinen, editor of VSiN’s Point Spread Weekly, found that the outright winner owns a point-spread record of 37-4-1 ATS in the last 42 NFL wild-card playoff games. I was stunned when I saw this.

Interestingly, there were two non-covers a year ago. Jacksonville (–9) edged Buffalo 10-3, and New Orleans (–6½) failed to cover against Carolina 31-26. But those were clearly rare exceptions.

With that intro, here are Brent’s selections for wild-card weekend.
