Super Wild-Card Weekend was pretty super for us here in the Tuley’s Takes home office, but it could have been better — especially since we had Ohio State and the Under in the CFP title game, so the less said about that, the better.
Back to the NFL. Underdogs went 4-2 ATS in the six wild-card games, which is always good for me and my followers, and it showed. My best bets went 2-1 with the Bears-Saints Under 47 being an easy winner to go with splitting my top ATS plays on Washington + 8.5 (winner!) and Tennessee + 3.5 (loser).
Washington’s 31-23 loss to the Buccaneers on Saturday was our best result, as we also recommended teasing the Bucs down to -2.5 and hit the middle to score with teasers tied to the Bills and Titans. The bad news was the Steelers’ 48-37 loss to the Browns killed a couple of teaser tickets and spoiled my chances in all my playoff contest pools — especially as I also used the Seahawks and Titans in the vast majority of them.
