2023 NFL playoff bracket: Picks, predictions, best bets for AFC, NFC schedule from model on 15-6 roll

The NFL playoffs expanded last season, so the 2023 NFL playoff bracket includes Super Wild Card Weekend for just the second time. That means only one bye in each conference. This year, the Philadelphia Eagles will get the week off in the NFC, while the Kansas City Chiefs are off in the AFC. The byes weren’t very fruitful last season, as the Titans and Packers both went down in the divisional round. Super Wild Card Weekend kicks off Saturday and the 2023 NFL playoff schedule features two games on Saturday, three on Sunday, and one on Monday Night Football. Who should you back in the NFL playoff bracket 2023? Before making any NFL picks or 2023 NFL bracket predictions, be sure to see what SportsLine’s advanced computer model has to say.

The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, is up well over $7,000 for $100 players on top-rated NFL picks since its inception. The model enters Super Wild Card Weekend in the 2023 NFL playoffs on an incredible 161-113 run on top-rated NFL picks that dates back to the 2017 season. It is also on a 15-6 roll on top-rated NFL picks since Week 7 of this season.

The model ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch four of the past six years on straight-up NFL picks and beat more than 94% of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times during that span. Anyone who has followed it is way up.

Now, it has turned its attention to the 2023 NFL playoffs bracket and locked in NFL picks for every NFL matchup. Head here to see every pick.

Top 2023 NFL playoff predictions

One of the surprising NFL playoff bracket predictions from the model: It is high on the Dallas Cowboys despite their sluggish finish to the season. Dallas decided to play its starters in Week 18 against the Commanders, but Washington still jumped out to a big lead and cruised to a 26-6 win. Dallas also lost its season-opener against the Bucs, 19-3.

But the model has also factored in that the Bucs have plenty of flaws after an 8-9 campaign in a soft NFC South. A mix of starters and backups fell to the Falcons 30-17 in the regular season finale.

Tampa Bay also only has two wins all season over teams that finished above .500, so Dallas is well-positioned to advance. The model says Dallas wins outright 52% of the time, making the Cowboys a team to back in the 2023 NFL playoffs bracket. See which other teams to pick here.
