Feels Like A Great Day For Road Dogs

Four very good teams take the field today in conference championship games. Like all good teams, they are spearheaded by very talented quarterbacks. But the best quarterbacks don't always win - at least not against the spread.


Here are our picks for today's games:


GAME 1 - AFC: Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs. LINE: Cincinnati +7.5

While we are big fans of KC QB Patrick Mahomes, Bengals QB Joe Burrow has won his last 5 starts and Cincinnati is 5-0 against the spread as a road underdog of more than 2 points since start of the 2021 season. Reason enough for us to PICK CINCINNATI BENGALS +7.5


GAME 2 - NFC: San Francisco 49ers at Los Angeles Rams. LINE: San Francisco +3.5

Another great QB duel, and we hate to go against Detroit hometown homie Mathew

Stafford, but the 49ers are 9-0 against the spread in January games since the start of the 2015 season, and 7-1-1 against the spread of their past 9 January playoff games going back to to the start of the 2013 calendar year. For this reason, we PICK SAN FRANSISCO +3.5
