2011 NFL Playoffs: Odds For Wild Card Weekend Have Saints As Huge Favorites

The early odds for the 2011 NFL Playoffs Wild Card Weekend are out, and they feature three small lines ... and Saints-Seahawks. After barely sneaking into the postseason as arguably the worst playoff team of all time, Seattle enters the playoffs as 12-point underdogs to the defending Super Bowl champs. And that's with the game being played in Seattle. That game kicks on Saturday at 4:30 P.M. ET.

The late game on Saturday is an AFC battle between the Jets and Colts, which figures to be slightly more competitive. The Colts finished the season strong, winning the AFC South. They open against the Wild Card Jets as 3-point favorites in Indy.

On Sunday, the early game features the surprising Chiefs taking on the Ravens in Kansas City. The line for this one currently varies, depending on the sports book, but sits somewhere between one and three points in favor of the Ravens.

The final game of the Wild Card Weekend is Green Bay vs. Philly, which should be the most entertaining of the bunch. The line for this one is also inconsistent right now, but the Eagles are 1-to-3 points favorites.
