KROQ Almost Acoustic Christmas: Tickets are SOLD OUT. Thanks for supporting Para Los Niños and the Al Wooten Jr. Heritage Center! Enter to win tickets HERE.’s RJ Bell Gives Us His NFL Wild Card Weekend Picks

There’s not many things better than NFL Football, but  NFL Playoff football is certainly one.  Our friend RJ Bell from is back to give us his picks for all four matchups this weekend.

Houston Texans +3.5 vs. Kansas City Chiefs

The Chiefs have won 10 in a row, which is very impressive, but RJ is not sold on the opponents the Chiefs had to beat in that run of games. Quarterback Brian Hoyer is back for the Texans, which is a decent upgrade from their far worse backups.

Green Bay Packers -1 vs. Washington Redskins

The Redskins did technically win the NFC East, but the division is a dumpster fire. All season, this team was only favored in two games. The Packers are struggling as well, but RJ says the playoff experience factor gives Green Bay the edge.

Minnesota Vikings +5 vs. Seattle Seahawks

77% of the betting public thinks Seattle is much better in this game than they really are. However, only a couple of weeks ago, they lost at home to the Rams. RJ thinks the Vikings are better than everyone thinks, pointing to them beating Green Bay last week to take the division title.

Cincinnati Bengals +3 vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

The Bengals are known for faceplanting in the postseason, and they are again without QB Andy Dalton. On the other hand, Pittsburgh will be without RB DeAngelo Williams, leaving the work to a back who has had less than 30 yards all season.
