NFL Conference Finals 2019
In rematches from two of the NFL regular season's most exciting games, the Chiefs, Patriots, Rams and Saints will look to secure their spot in Superbowl 53 this Sunday.
Will the old guard of Brady and Belichek overcome the new kid on the block, Patrick Mahomes in the AFC title game, or will Andy Reid finally make his first Superbowl after a career of playoff disappointment.
In the NFC title game we can ask the same question; will it be the young dynamic coach, quarterback duo of Mcvay and Goff who advance, or will the once champions, Payton and Brees reach the summit once more...
NFC Championship Game:
Los Angeles Rams vs New Orleans Saints - Sunday January 20, 3:05pm EST
When these 2 teams met in November it was a 45-35 shootout win in New Orleans by the Saints. Brees threw for 346 yards and 4 TDs. Michael Thomas had 12 catches for 211 yards and after he posted a monster game against the Eagles in the divisional round, he is making his case as the best receiver in the football.
So the question is will the Rams lock him up 1 on 1 with Aqib Talib, who missed the first meeting?
On the other side of the ball, will the reinvigorated Rams run game be able to keep Brees on the sideline ?And when it comes time to make big throws will Goff be able to step up in enemy territory?
The Saints are made to play in the dome, and with 1 home left to go to the Superbowl, the New Orleans Saints will emerge victorious over the worthy Rams who are still short in the big game experience factor.
PICK: SAINTS -3.5 (-105)

AFC Championship Game:
New England Patriots vs Kansas City Chiefs - Sunday January 20, 6:40pm EST
One of the more noteworthy NFL scores of the season was when the undefeated Chiefs went into Foxboro and lost 43-40. Even though Patriots won at home, the league was put on notice that Mahomes and the Chiefs was a force to be reckoned with. Now he gets to take them on, at his yard.
This one is tricky. The Chiefs homefield advantage at Arrowhead is among the best in the NFL. The Patriots went 3-5 on the road this season.
But NFL playoff Brady trumps any regular season shortcomings. Andrew Luck was clearly not capable of moving his offense in the cold this past weekend. Tom Brady may be the best cold weather quarterback ever. And for all the deserved praise heaped upon Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs for their groundbreaking season ask yourself this; Is Andy Reid going to beat Bill Belichek in a playoff game? Check the below NFL odds.
PICK: PATRIOTS ML (+120)
