2021-22 NFL Picks Against the Spread: Wild Card Weekend

The MikesPickz NFL Picks are back again for the 2021-22 season.

As usual, I will make my picks for each game, every week of the NFL season using the point spread from the NY Daily News on Wednesday. After each week, the post will be updated with the results. My full pick record for all seasons can be found on the historical picks page.

The favorite will be marked with the spread in parenthesis next to the team name. For example, Patriots (-6.5). My best bet is the team that I feel is most likely to win and cover the spread this week.

Welcome to Wild Card Weekend! Without further adieu, here are my picks:

King of the Hill aka Lock of the Week aka Survivor Pool Picks:
In this section, I will post my pick for a survivor pool. Once a team is used, I can’t use them again for the rest of the season. The team selected only has to win the game, not cover the spread. Pick One and Pick Two are independent of each other. If I use a team with Pick One, I can use them later with Pick Two.

Week Pick One Pick Two
Week 1 Rams – win Vikings – loss
Week 2 Browns – win Packers – win
Week 3 Broncos – win Panthers – win
Week 4 Saints – loss Bills – win
Week 5 Vikings – win Raiders – loss
Week 6 Colts – win Rams – win
Week 7 Packers – win Cardinals – win
Week 8 Bengals – loss Chiefs – win
Week 9 Bills – loss Cowboys – loss
