The time has come to make our picks for the NFL playoffs. Some do this at the beginning of a season, which is dicey and mostly an exercise in futility and tomfoolery. (That doesn’t keep me from joining them occasionally, of course.)
Now that we know who the participants in the 2010 NFL Playoffs are, and where the odds-makers have set the odds, we can make an intelligent, informed prediction as to each game’s outcome. I would tell you to step right up and place your bets, but I advise you to keep your money in your pocket or invest it in your family. That way, you can enjoy the games, cheer for the team you like best, and enjoy the pure thrill of competition.
