NFL Conference Championships are finally here! That’s right, the season is almost over. The 4 teams that are representing the AFC and the NFC, have clearly been the best teams all year. The 4 highest offenses in the league. All 4 teams have extreme star power on both ends of the field. Pro-bowlers everywhere you look. I’m just going to be honest with you, and tell you that any of the 4 teams can win the Superbowl this year. I can make a case for all of them right now. But because this is a betting article, and you came here to read my opinion, I’ll give you my best picks. Here are my FLAGRANT FOUL, NFL Conference Finals picks!!!
Los Angeles Rams vs New Orleans Saints: Live from the Bayou, The boys from Southern California are going to put there talents up against the south’s saviors. The game is a rematch from week 9, where both teams combined for 80 POINTS!!! The Saints won 45 to 35, and put the world on notice that they were the top team in the NFL. Fast forward to this coming Sunday and the two teams still 2 of the top teams. This game could easily go to the home team, but I’m going to go the other way. There are a few keys to the game that I think can make a difference. First off, the Rams played on Saturday last weekend and were able to get an extra day of rest. That makes a difference because the Saints got beat up physically in their game against the Eagles. The Saints had serious injuries to their offensive and defensive lines, and 2 of their important players have already been ruled out. Also, I have found a few match-ups within the game. Brandon Cooks, who used to play for the New Orleans Saints, would love to stick it to his former team. And we all know the feud between Marcus Peters and Coach Sean Payton. I just think the Rams have too much talent on both sides of the ball. I’m going to take the up and coming Los Angeles Rams in this one. +3.5
New England Patriots vs Kansas City Chiefs: Have you ever heard of an Arctic Blast? Me either. What I do know is that this game Sunday night is about to be COLD AS F*CK!!! Right now, it shows the game-time weather at 5 degrees at kick off. That is INSANE! Good luck to all of you Chiefs fans who bought tickets to sit out there in the snow. This kind of cold is going to effect everyone. The over and under has moved from 57.5 to 54.5. Its going to be very hard for the players to stay warm, as well as catch the ball. That favors the running game. Both teams looked great last week in their games, so I don’t know who has the biggest advantage. I don’t like to bet against Brady, but Patrick Mahomes is a problem. I don’t care how cold it is, I think he will still be able to make plays at will. If you want me to pick a side, then I’m going to lean towards Kansas City. Brady has not been the same on the road, and I know he still the greatest of all time, but his team is not. The are old and slow, and Kansas City is dynamic and fast. If you think Kansas City will win, take the -3.5, If you like the Patriots, take Under 54.5. But whatever you do, don’t take Kansas City and the Under.
Whatever way you think these 2 games will go, they will be great either way. The NFL won with these match-ups. The up and coming stars, vs the 2 great veteran quarterbacks. The Super Bowl will be outstanding, and of course, we will give our top bets for that as well. Please check back into the FLAGRANT FOUL to see what more we have in store. Enjoy the games everyone!
