Pick’em Pool Pick Advice for Subscribers in 2023 NFL Playoff Pools

IMPORTANT: The Football Pick’em Picks product works differently for the playoffs. It does not provide customized picks for each of your pools. Instead, this pick strategy article will be updated to guide your pick selections.

Welcome to the PoolGenius pick strategy article for 2022-23 NFL playoffs pick’em pools (and for pools that include both the regular season and playoffs). This is a premium article available to subscribers with access to our Football Pick’em Picks product.

If you don’t already have access, you’ll see a button at the bottom of this page to subscribe.

Because of the unique complexity of NFL playoff pick’em pools, our Football Pick’em Picks product does not provide customized, pool-specific pick recommendations for playoff pools like it does for regular-season pools.

Instead, this article provides our data-driven pick advice for playoff pick’em pools, from the Wild Card Round to the Super Bowl. We update it multiple times weekly throughout the playoffs, and include news updates that are likely to impact pick’em pool strategy.

The Super Bowl is here, with just one game remaining. Here are the updates and plan for the Super Bowl:

  • Mon, Jan. 30: Super Bowl Matchup and Spread
  • Wed, Feb. 1: Super Bowl Pick Popularity Data
  • Thu, Feb. 2: Game-Winner Super Bowl Strategy
  • Thu, Feb. 3: Spread Pool Super Bowl Strategy

If you want to see our previous content, you can see our schedule for Conference Championship Week here, Divisional Round content, here, and Wild Card Round content, here.

Subscribers who still have questions after reading this article can submit them via the product’s Q&A Forum. Just make sure to do it by Friday at noon before the Super Bowl to guarantee that we have time to review it. The earlier you get your question in, the better the odds that we can respond in time.

2023 Super Bowl Matchup, Spread and Total

A year after we had a Super Bowl with no No. 1 or No. 2 seeds advancing, we get both of the conference’s top seeds squaring off in the Super Bowl. Philadelphia won handily 31-7 against a short-handed San Francisco team, where QB Brock Purdy tore his UCL on the first drive, and backup Josh Johnson also suffered an injury. Kansas City, meanwhile, finally won a close game by a field goal over Cincinnati, after losing three similar games to them in the last two seasons.

Philadelphia is a 2-point favorite against Kansas City, with 54 percent win odds, in a game being played in Arizona. The over/under is 49.5 points.
