NFL Championship Games Selections

The Super Bowl is not far away but before then there are two cracking games tomorrow for the NFC and AFC Championships.

NFC Championship Game

This fixture pits the Seattle Seahawks against the Green Bay Packers. The Seahawks are the reigning Super Bowl Champions and the prohibitive favourites in this game. The Packers are hoping their hobbled QB Aaron Rodgers can get through the game. Neither team looks like they have a lot of points in them so I am keen to take the unders on the total game score in this one.

Tip: Total game score less than 46.50 points.

AFC Championship Game

In the AFC the New England Patriots host the Indianapolis Colts. The young bull, Andrew Luck, faces the old bull, Tom Brady, and a mouthwatering match up of two fantastic quarterbacks. The Patriots are playing in their sixth straight play off series and have the experience and the home crowd behind them which makes me think they will best the young Colts here and end up winning by at least a touchdown.

Tip: New England Patriots to cover the line (-7 points) against the Indianapolis Colts.

If you put these two tips together and win your return will be $3.65.

As always:

1. Please gamble responsibly.
2. Whilst all care is taken with these tips no responsibility vests for losses incurred.

Good luck and good punting!

Shumpty’s Punt: NFL Championship Week

The NFL season is nearing its end and this week presents two excellent games in the battle for the NFC and AFC championships. I have been following the season closely and, despite the New York Jets not make the finals, have been very impressed with the games so far in finals month.

In the AFC the Manning led Denver Broncos host the Belichick coached New England Patriots. In the NFC last year’s a Super Bowl losing San Francisco 49ers travel to Seattle to face the Seahawks and their metaphorical 12th man.

Here are my tips for each game (commencing Monday morning Australia time):

AFC: New England Patriots to cover the line (+5.0 points) against the Denver Broncos

NFC: Seattle Seahawks to cover the line (-3.5 points) against the San Francisco 49ers

Both games will be willing encounters which, particularly the game in Seattle, could well be low scoring and dominated by defence which, for me, gets the Patriots and the Seahawks over the line.

Put both of those tips together in a multi and it will pay just short of $4. Can’t wait for the first game to start!
