NFL Predictions January 20: Who will win the conference championship games?

The NFL season is down to the final four and the top seeds in each conference remain. The Los Angeles Rams take on the New Orleans Saints in the NFC. In the AFC, the Kansas City Chiefs host the New England Patriots.  Who will rise to play in the Super Bowl?

Los Angeles Rams versus New Orleans Saints

The Rams took down the Dallas Cowboys the by score of 30-22 in the Divisional Round, while the Saints came from 14-points down early to defeat the Eagles, 20-14. New Orleans is extremely tough at home, particularly in the post season with Drew Brees at quarterback. They are a three-point favorite and have a 52 percent chance of winning, as noted in the VIP Picks section of the site. The Rams have a +31 to +28 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator and both teams are “burning hot” on the Team Strength Oscillator. Los Angeles is the more stable of the two teams, performing more consistently according to their favorite/underdog status. The Saints won by a 45-35 score as a home underdog on November 4. In much of the same kind of game, the Saints have a better defense and the experience of Brees. They will win the game and cover, advancing to the Super Bowl.

New England Patriots versus Kansas City Chiefs

The top team in the AFC throughout the season, the Chiefs took care of the Colts easily in the Divisional Playoffs, while the Patriots defeated the Chargers by 13 in a high scoring affair. Kansas City comes in a three-point favorite, however the Patriots have a 53 percent chance of winning. Both teams are “burning hot” on the Team Strength Oscillator, but the Patriots hold a +29 to +24 advantage on the Power Ranking Indicator. This has much to do with the Chiefs going just 3-2 over their last five entering the post season. Kansas City is the more stable team and are always tough at home. Despite the experience of the Patriots, which is likely the biggest reason they have a better chance of winning, the Chiefs will end the dynasty for the Patriots. The Chiefs will meet the Saints in Super Bowl LIII.
