  • Game 1: Cincinnati Bengals at Kansas City Chiefs, Sunday, January 30th 

    BEST BET: 

    We’d have all loved for last week’s game between Allen and Mahomes to be the Super Bowl matchup, and sadly that won’t happen, but what a game! 

    Fast forward one week, and we’ve got another matchup that is certainly worth paying attention to. Bengals QB Joe Burrow has successfully put them back on the radar with two great playoff wins. 

    Mahomes is coming off a 42 point offensive shootout including 378 yards and 3 touchdowns, plus 69 yards and a touchdown on the ground.  

    Burrow is coming off a 348 yard performance in a much lower scoring game against the Titans last week.  

    When these teams played last time, both quarterbacks combined for 705 passing yards and 6 touchdowns.  

    This game is going to feature the offensive weapons of both teams and I see this game being very similar to last week’s showdown between the Chiefs and Bills. 

    Make sure you tune in to this one featuring two quarterbacks who we will see for many more years to come. 

    PICK: Total Points OVER 54.5 

    BEST PROP: Patrick Mahomes Longest Pass o37.5 yards  

    We all know how well Mahomes can throw to open receivers down the field, and he’s going to have to exactly that in order to reach another Super Bowl.  

    Mahomes has cashed this line in 7 out of his last 7 games and has many weapons, including Pringle, Hardman, Hill, and Kelce, who will all have opportunities to cash this early on in the game. 

  • Game 2 – San Francisco 49ers at Los Angeles Rams, Sunday, January 30th 

    It’s weird typing this knowing the Packers are not involved. Having said that, the 49ers were a matchup nightmare for the Packers, so they deserve to enjoy every moment of this.  

    Everyone keeps doubting the 49ers, and they just keep shutting the critics up. I feel like this game is going to be the complete opposite of the other Conference Championship, where this one will be more physical and likely defensively focused.  

    The 49ers own the Rams recently, but this being at home for the Rams with the chance to host the Super Bowl makes me question whether that’s about to change.  

    I wouldn’t be surprised either way, but there’s one thing I feel could be missing, and that is points. I think the 49ers defensive front five will get to Stafford and make him rush into some throws. 

    These teams combined for 51 points in the first outing, and 41 in the other – but in a high pressure game with plenty at stake, I’m betting the under.
