NFL Picks: AFC and NFC Championship Games

The NFL season is down to the final four teams. In the AFC, the 1st seed Kansas City Chiefs host the 3rd seed Cincinnati Bengals. In the NFC, the 1st seed Philadelphia Eagles take on the 2nd seed San Francisco 49ers. A trip to the Super Bowl is on the line.

San Francisco 49ers versus Philadelphia Eagles

The 49ers head to Philadelphia after taking down the Cowboys in a hard-fought battle by the score of 19-12. The Eagles dominated the Giants last week from the start in a 38-7 blowout. Both teams enter the contest “burning hot” and the 49ers have a +29 to +27 edge on the Power Ranks Indicator. The Eagles are 2.5-point home favorites with odds of 1.690 to 2.178 with an over/under of 46.5. San Francisco is given a 55 percent chance to cover, but the Score Predictor likes Philadelphia by a 25-21 score with a whopping 90 percent confidence in the prediction. Both teams are showing great stability, at +10 and +13 on the Team Volatility Oscillator. The teams have been trending on opposite sides of the over/under line, so take that into consideration before placing a bet. San Francisco has covered in each of their last five games as an underdog. Philadelphia is the best team they will have faced all season and the same can be said for the Eagles. The difference could be home field and Jalen Hurts. If Hurts is himself and the Eagles protect the ball, they advance to the Super Bowl. If not, it’s the 49ers. I’m going with a hunch and pick the Eagles by 3 but pass on the over/under.

Cincinnati Bengals versus Kansas City Chiefs

The Bengals enter play coming off a 27-10 domination over the Buffalo Bills. The Chiefs held off the Jaguars in their divisional round games last week, 27-20. Cincinnati has won three straight over Kansas City and enters this game as a 1.5-point round underdog with odds dead even at 1.91 each with an over/under of 47.5. Both teams are “burning hot” on the Team Strength Oscillator and team teams are even at +28 on the Power Ranks Indicator. The Score Predictor likes the Bengals to continue their dominance over the Chiefs by a score of 21-17 with 92 percent confidence. They are also given a 56 percent chance of covering the spread which means either a win or a loss by a single point. Both teams have been involved in games “over” the line in three of their last six games. The Team Volatility Oscillator is showing both teams with moderately high stability. Kansas City has won all of its last five games as a favorite and Cincinnati has covered all of its last five as an underdog. I see one trend ending this week, which is the Kansas City winning streak as a favorite. Take the Bengals in a game “over” the line.
