New England Patriots 9/4
Kansas City Chiefs 5/2
L.A. Chargers 6/1
Pittsburgh Steelers 7/1
Houston Texans 8/1
Baltimore Ravens 16/1
Why are the Patriots Favored Over the Chiefs?
The Patriots are favored to win the AFC over the Chiefs for a few reasons. First, New England beat Kansas City 43-40 earlier in the season. In that game, the Chiefs had no answer for Tom Brady, who threw for 340 yards and a TD. Second, Brady and the Patriots have developed a rushing attack, which they haven’t had in years. The Pats average 118.2 yards per. Third, New England’s defense is better than Kansas City’s. The Patriots allow 22.5 points from 375 yards. The Chiefs allow 27 points from 409.6 yards per.
Kansas City can hang with the Patriots on the scoreboard, but most feel there will be a play that puts it in New England’s favor. The Pats have won the AFC the past two seasons. Max betting limits must be in place.
What Teams Have the Best Shot After the Patriots and Chiefs?
Both the Baltimore Ravens and L.A. Chargers have excellent chances of winning the American Football Conference Championship. The Ravens boast the top defense in the NFL. Even though right now Baltimore starts a rookie quarterback, if the Ravens make the playoffs they’ll likely start Joe Flacco.
The Chargers are a seriously talented football team. They have talent on both sides of the ball, one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL in the past 20 seasons sits under center, and their coach, Anthony Lynn, makes in-game adjustments as good as any coach in the league.
NFC Conference Championship Odds
L.A. Rams 3/2
New Orleans Saints 3/2
Chicago Bears 10/1
Dallas Cowboys 12/1
Minnesota Vikings 16/1
Seattle Seahawks 16/1
Which Team Should Garner the Most Action? Rams or Saints?
Although the Rams could gain homefield advantage throughout the playoffs, Los Angeles doesn’t deserve more action than the Saints. New Orleans got back on track with a fantastic Week 14 win where they relied on their defense, rushed the football, and blocked a punt.
The Saints could leapfrog the Rams and offer outright favorite’s odds to win the NFC this week. New Orleans is one of the top teams in the NFL and with 3 winnable games, they must be taken seriously as the NFC winner. Set max betting limits on both teams. Make the limits on New Orleans lower than those on the Rams.
What Teams Can Beat the Rams and Saints?
The Bears, Cowboys, and Seahawks can all beat Los Angeles or New Orleans and win the NFC. Minnesota’s a solid team, but they’re not as good as the Seahawks, Bears, or Cowboys.
Seattle boasts the top rushing attack in the NFL. The Seahawks have a real shot of making waves in the playoffs. They’re on a 3-game winning streak before their Monday night battle against Minnesota. Set max betting limits on the Seahawks.
Also use pay per head software to set max betting limits on the Bears and Cowboys.
