2011 NFL Playoffs: Odds For Wild Card Weekend, Where Saints Are Huge Favorites

The 2011 NFL playoff odds have been released, and while most of the spreads are small, as you'd expect in the postseason, there is an outlier: the New Orleans Saints are 12-point favorites against the Seattle Seahawks. Keep in mind, the Saints are the road team in that game. 

The Saints opened as 10.5-point favorites and are currently giving 12 points at 5Dimes.com. The Seahawks, at 7-9, are the first team with a losing record to qualify for the NFL playoffs. But New Orleans isn't the only road team favored -- the Baltimore Ravens are giving one point at Kansas City. 

Besides the Saints-Seahawks game, the rest of the lines range from -1 to -3 (depending where you look), which essentially makes the other three Wild Card games pick 'ems. 

2011 NFL Playoff Odds for Wild Card Weekend: 

Saints (-12) at Seahawks

Jets at Colts (-2.5) 

Ravens (-1) at Chiefs

Packers at Eagles (-1)
