NFL Conference Championship Odds and Super Bowl lines

Where can we make money this weekend?

Last weekend I wrote up my gambling picks, for recreational purposes only, here. I hit the winner and over/under on all 4 games. I am pretty sure that has never happened for me and probably never will again. I should have actually put some money on things.

While it was a great weekend for me, it was a bloodbath for the odds makers in Vegas:

“Last weekend was our worst NFL weekend we have ever had mainly because of the Packers, so I am not surprised to see our bettors backing them again with over 70% of the action on them,” Kevin Bradley, SportsBook Manager, said in a statement. “We have a posted Total of 61½, which seems astronomical for an NFL Playoff game, but does not seem to be scaring many people away with over 75% betting the over. The other matchup seems to be more balanced with just a tad more coming in on the Pats so far.”

Here are the odds and lines for Championship weekend:

Conference Championship Playoff Round Lines

Green Bay Packers: +4 (77% of public)

Atlanta Falcons: -4 (23% of public)

Total: 61

Pittsburgh Steelers: +6 (45% of public)

New England Patriots: -6 (55% of public)

Total: 51
