Attached are my updated power ratings on the remaining playoff teams (along with the other teams) showing their rating to start the year, along with their rating last week, and their current rating. Additionally, I show each team's Home Field Advantage (a blank HFA indicates an average HFA). To calculate a spread, take the difference between the teams, and adjust for HFA. Note, if your calculated point spread is above 7, it typically requires a small adjustment downward, to reflect the 4th quarter of most of these games being more of a pk'm type situation.
Note, most handicappers use 3 for an average HFA. Recent data (the last 3 years) suggests 2.5 MAY be a more accurate number.
On the capping side, I have FIRED on two huge 3* Selections this week in the NFL! Check it out!

Just curious, why are you downgrading Pittsburgh by a full point?
Also, it seems like all of the bye teams have the same ratings as last week, except for KC. What's your reasoning for upgrading them?
Guess downgrade due to Big Ben.
No idea of Big Ben's Health......knocked em down due to the uncertainty......
Come on everyone knows he's playing or spread would have shot through the roof by now, wake up people.
lets go vikings superbowl or bust.
Yes we all now hes playing - but will it affect his play during the game.
