We preview and pick each of those games against the spread. To make actual wagers on this game and more, click here.


Green Bay Packers at Seattle Seahawks

Sunday, 3:05 p.m., FOX

Betting Line: Packers +7.5; Seahawks -7.5


Seahawks 31, Packers 21

The Seahawks are the best team left in the playoffs and are the favorites to win the Super Bowl. Aaron Rodgers hasn't been himself, and that's going to be exposed even moreso this week against Seattle's tremendous secondary than it was against the Cowboys last week. If the Packers can't get their offense going, they don't stand a chance. Russell Wilson is a big-time QB and will led his team back to the Super Bowl.


Indianpolis Colts at New England Patriots

Sunday, 6:40 p.m., CBS

Betting Line: Colts +7; Patriots -7


Patriots 35, Colts 30

The Patriots passed their biggest test of the AFC portion of the playoffs last week, holding on for a close victory over Baltimore. Against the Colts, the Patriots are better in every way and there is little chance of them losing this game. The only way for the Colts to pull off the upset is for Andrew Luck to play the best game of his career, with big performances from T.Y. Hilton and others added on. Indianapolis' defense has improved and will need a couple of turnovers to keep up.
