Conference Championship NFL Picks

2-1 last week. The Rams had just enough of a cushion to avoid getting backdoored at the end, KC won an easy blowout, and the Saints came up a field goal short after falling down 0-14. I talked myself out of the Pats at the last minute due to Tom Brady's "Injury" but did have a little on the over on that game so I can't complain.

There are no plays on either of the sides this week as I have the Saints about -3.5 and the Chiefs in the -2.5 range. One could put a little on the Pats at +3 +105 (I personally have because I like action and will be watching the game) but I will not have it as an official play as it does not meet the high standards of this free picks blog.

I do have one official play which is the under in the Saints-Rams game, at 56.5 -105. While this is a dome game with two explosive offenses, the Saints are actually one of the best defensive teams in the league, and both defenses are mostly healthy which is valuable at this point in the season. In addition, both teams run the ball a decent amount and are generally not up-tempo teams. This one should be in the low 50s.
