NEW YORK, NY – This weekend, the NFL playoffs are down to the final four to face off in the AFC and NFC Championship Games. The final four is down to the Green Bay Packers, Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Kansas City Chiefs, and the Buffalo Bills.
NFC Championship: Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Green Bay Packers
Current line Green Bay -3.5 Total is 51.5
A battle for the ages as Aaron Rodgers and Tom Brady meet in the 2021 NFC Championship game at Lambeau Field. Tampa Bay is coming off an impressive win to advance to this championship game 30-20 last weekend over the New Orleans Saints. They have now won six in a row and are averaging 36 ppg during this winning streak.
Brady has been playing his best ball of the season and leads the NFL with 43 starts in the postseason.
Green Bay (14-3) has been the most consistent team all season long and trying to reach their first Super Bowl in 10 years. Led by leading MVP candidate Aaron Rogers the Pack took care of the NFL’s Top defensive team last week when they knocked off the Rams 32-18. Rodgers finished the regular season with 4,299 yards and 48 touchdowns.
“These two teams met October 18th and Tampa won on their home field 38-10, in that game Rodgers threw two interceptions but overall for the season Rogers has just 5 INTs,” says Joe Wiz, one of the nation’s top sports betting analysts. “Both teams are coming in peaking at the right time and clicking on all cylinders and Total just might go Over.”
NFC Championship: Buffalo Bills at Kansas City Chiefs
Current line has Kansas City -3. Total is 54.
These two teams met on October 18th and Orchard Park and Kansas City prevailed 26-17. A battle of two up-and-coming rising stars in the NFL will be on full display this weekend.
“Kansas City Quarterback Patrick Mahomes at age 25 already has an MVP title and Super Bowl ring while Josh Allen is just 24 and looking to get to the big game,” Joe Wiz said.
This is the third straight year that Kansas City (15-2) is hosting the AFC Championship game, last week they knocked Cleveland 22-17 to advance. In that game, the Chief’s star quarterback Mahomes was knocked out of the game but he is expected to start on Sunday. He is 24-1 in his last 25 starts but KC is an alarming 0-9 ATS in their last nine games including last week’s win over Cleveland where they were favored by double digits before the line dropped late.
Buffalo (15-3) advanced to the AFC Championship game after they knocked off Baltimore 17-3. The Bills have won eight straight games and 11 of 12, they are 9-1 ATS in their last ten games. This is the Bills’ first conference championship game since 1993. Quarterback Josh Allen is having an MVP type of season and he will need to play better than last week’s win over Baltimore as the Chiefs have one of the top stop units in the NFL. Expect the Bills to put the ball in the air often and Mahomes has two of the best targets in all of the NFL in Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce.
