NFL Best Bets – Conference Championships

NFC Championship

The Eagles have steamrolled their way through the season, and the 49ers have continued to dominate despite the roadblocks they have hit.

It’s not often the best teams make it to the Conference Championships, but there is no doubt these are the teams that should be playing this week. Most years, an underdog sneaks through, and while everyone loves a David, watching Goliath battle another Goliath is always entertaining.

San Francisco has one of the most well-constructed teams the NFL has ever seen, and it has made up for the fact they are playing with Mr. Irrelevant. This team has so much talent that they are attempting to carry a rookie quarterback to the Super Bowl for the first time in NFL History.

However, The Eagles are just as gritty as their city. This team has rocked opponents all season long, and it’s hard to picture them losing.

I have a future on the 49ers, but I don’t see them picking up a win in Philly. Playing a rookie has to catch up to them at some point, and we should see it here.

Philly -3.5 (+106)
Philly 1H -1.5 (-110)
Jalen Hurts Over 247.5 Passing Yards (-114)

This may be a regular meeting going forward. Burrow and Mahomes are attempting to pick up the storyline of Brady and Manning. These guys continue to impress and are head and shoulders above everyone else in the league. A new legacy is underway with the Chiefs and Bengals.

Whoever wins this game will win the Super Bowl.

While it’s unclear how bad Mahomes’ ankle is at the moment, overall, it’s unfortunate that he will not be 100% for this one.

These teams are well matched, but Burrow is undefeated against the Chiefs. So taking on a gimpy Mahomes, the Bengals are well on their way to their second straight Super Bowl.

The Bengals are hot, and after rolling through the Bills, the Chiefs will fall next.

Cincinnati (+106)

Joe Burrow has failed to hit his passing prop in eight of his last ten games. The Bengals win games without relying on Burrow to throw for 300+ yards. That has been their MO to this point, and that shouldn’t change today.

Joe Burrow Under 277.5 (-114)
