Sunday afternoon will first feature the Colts vs Ravens at 1:00pm EST and will be followed by the NFC wild card match-up between the Seattle Seahawks (11-5) and the Washington Redskins (10-6) at 4:30pm EST which can be seen live on FOX from FedExField. Seattle will be looking to win their sixth straight game after defeating the St. Louis Rams last week in the regular season finale at home while Washington will be looking to win their eighth straight after finishing the season with a win against the Dallas Cowboys last Sunday. Seahawks vs Redskins odds in Vegas for the NFC wild card game on Sunday have Seattle 3-point road favorites vs Washington with the over/under total set at 46.
It seems that owner Daniel Snyder's money has finally begun to pay off with the Washington Redskins hosting the first playoff game in nearly 13-years with a rookie quarterback that finished the regular season with a 102.4-passer rating throwing 3,200-yards for 20-touchdowns. That quarterback is Robert Griffin III who only threw 9/18 for 100-yards in last Sunday's win against Dallas but was effective on the ground rushing for 63-yards and a TD. Washington scored 14-points in the fourth quarter to end the year with a 28-18 victory against the Cowboys, covering the spread as 3.5-point favorites in NFL odds to go a profitable 11-5 ATS for the season. Rookie RB Alfred Morris also made the "hogs" faithful proud with a 200-yard, 3-touchdown performance against the Cowboys. The key for Washington to pull off the home upset against Seattle in NFC wild card odds will be the play of RGIII and Morris against the stout Seahawks defense but more importantly will be the need for WR's Pierre Garcon and Santana Moss to open up the secondary. Handicapping trends have the Redskins as home underdogs since recently going 7-14 SU overall at home and 4-2 SU when playing the Seahawks at FedExField.

The Seattle Seahawks enter Sunday's game with their own rookie quarterback, Russell Wilson, who finished the regular season with a 100.0-passer rating throwing for 3,118-yards and 26-touchdowns with an additional 489-rushing yards and 4-touchdowns. The success of Wilson has culminated into an 11-5 season as the Seahawks are coming off five straight wins which includes a home win against the St. Louis Rams for the regular season finale. Wilson scored the go ahead touchdown with 1:39 left on the clock to give Seattle the 20-13 win against the Rams but failed to cover the 11-point spread to go 11-5 ATS on the year. While Seattle has been an unstoppable force when playing at home (7-1 ATS), Sunday' NFC wild card game will be on the road where the squad has gone a mediocre 4-4 against the spread. The deciding factor in the match-up and why the road team is favored in Seahawks vs Redskins odds is simple; defense wins championships (and wild cards). Seattle finished the regular season 6th in the league holding opponents to just 203.1-passing yard per game and 10th against the rush allowing an average of just 103.1-yards per game. That being said, betting trends are not in favor of a Seattle victory as the squad has gone a dismal 6-14 SU when playing on the road, 2-4 SU and ATS when playing at FedExField and 4-5-1 against the spread in the head to head series.
