It is the time of the year where we get ready for an entertainment spectacle and us, in the gambling world, for collecting gold at the end of the rainbow, otherwise known as the Super Bowl. The only question is, how much gold will you be collecting?
It is time to focus and pad that bankroll of yours before the biggest sports betting extravaganza of the year. If you’re planning on going with your gut this weekend, don’t. You can find stats and trends for each game to help you make educated betting decisions.
Before you handicap the individual teams and matchups, there’s two huge conference finals trends you need to be aware of. It’s NFL conference championship time and only four teams remain. Just like last week.
With both home teams being favored, bettors should be aware that the favored team is 5-1 SU and 4-2 ATS in the last three years in conference championship games. Also in the last three years in this round, home teams have gone 6-0 SU and 5-1 ATS.
Green Bay Packers – Nine of the last 11 meetings have been decided by eight points or less.
Atlanta Falcons – This will be the biggest total in an NFL playoff game.
Pittsburgh Steelers – Le’Veon Bell is on fire and it’s translated to cash for Pittsburgh bettors.
New England Patriots – Believe it or not, Tom Brady has been a costly wager in AFC championship games.
The Steelers are definitely the underdogs heading into Foxboro to face the Patriots for the AFC Championship but what other bets are there to be made?
According to odds-makers you can be pretty certain that the first touchdown of the game will be scored by someone with a “B” name, either Tom Brady, LeGarrette Blount, or Pittsburgh’s “Killer B’s”; Ben Roethlisberger, Antonio Brown, Le’Veon Bell or Chris Boswell.
The other sure-things of the Conference Championship Weekend include that the Falcons and Packers ratings will exceed last year’s NFC Champion and that Bill Belichick and Mike Tomlin’s post-game handshake will last less than one second.
There are odds on if there are no punts during the Packers and Falcons game and even odds on Belichick and Tomlin skipping a handshake and going for a bro-hug or fist-bump.
