The NFL wrapped up the regular season ten hours ago, and the playoff picture is officially complete. This coming Saturday, the New England Patriots will host the Tennessee Titans and the Houston Texans will host the Buffalo Bills. On Sunday, The New Orleans Saints will host the Minnesota Vikings and the Philadelphia Eagles will host the Seattle Seahawks.

All four home teams opened as favorites, but we have seen significant movement that has resulted in one road team moving into favored status. The Eagles opened as a field goal favorite at DraftKings Sportsbook, but overnight the line has shifted to now sit at Seahawks -1.5. The Eagles have lost numerous players to injury and face serious questions about the availability of both tight end Zach Ertz and running back Miles Sanders. The Seahawks have dealt with their own injuries, including offensive tackle Duane Brown, linebacker Mychal Kendricks, and wide receiver Jaron Brown, but are in a better position health-wise.

The Saints-Vikings line has seen some decent movement overnight as well. New Orleans opened at -6.5, but has climbed to -8 this morning. New Orleans had an impressive showing against Carolina in Week 17, while Minnesota rested several of their starters to get ready for the Wild Card game.
