The 2022 NFL regular season is in the books, it's time to look ahead to the postseason.

Throughout the regular season, I gave you my moneyline pick for every single game. Did you think I was going to stop just because the playoffs are here? Absolutely not.

In this article, I'm going to give you my straight up moneyline pick for all six NFL Wild Card Weekend games. We don't care about point spreads in this article, moneylines only.

Be sure to also check out this week's episode of the Bacon Bets Podcast to hear my deep dive into each game, including my favorite player prop for each.

But for now, here are my straight up picks for all six Wild Card matchups.

NFL Wild Card Moneyline Bets

Seattle Seahawks vs. San Francisco 49ers

  • Pick: 49ers -500

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Jacksonville Jaguars

  • Pick: Jaguars +114

The Jaguars enter the playoffs as one of the hottest teams in the NFL. They have the makings of last year's Cincinnati Bengals. Don't be surprised if they make a deep playoff run.

Miami Dolphins vs. Buffalo Bills

  • Pick: Dolphins +600

Believe it or not, I think the Dolphins moneyline has some value here. Their defense has been playing the best they have all season and the Bills have had some red flags down the stretch of the season, specifically in the turnover department. Even without Tua in the lineup, the Dolphins are live dogs.

New York Giants vs. Minnesota Vikings

  • Pick: Giants +145

Baltimore Ravens vs. Cincinnati Bengals

  • Pick: Bengals -390

Dallas Cowboys vs. Tampa Bay Buccaneers

  • Pick: Cowboys -135

This play is my most confident of the week. Despite beating a couple of bad teams late in the season to capture the NFC South with an 8-9 record, the Buccaneers are not a good football team. They rank in the bottom 10 in virtually every single offensive category and they're the worst offense in the NFL.
