NFL Computer Picks: Conf Championships

NFL bettors will need to be savvy shoppers when choosing a pointspread pick for this weekend’s AFC Championship and NFC Championship games.

The OddsShark Computer model indicates both spreads for Sunday’s doubleheader are spot on. These lines are tight. The totals, however, may provide some value.


AFC Championship Game Betting Odds

Tom Brady and Peyton Manning will be squaring off in the AFC Championship Game for the third time when the New England Patriots travel to Denver this week to face the Broncos.

The Broncos opened as 6.5-point favorites after knocking off the San Diego Chargers, 24-17, in the divisional round.

For betting interest, the home team has won and covered three playoff meetings of these teams. And the past four meetings played OVER the total.

The Patriots are 5-1 SU and ATS in the past six games vs Broncos.

Patriots vs Broncos Prop Betting Odds

Peyton Manning will pass for 50 yards more than Tom Brady in the AFC Championship Game if one football betting prop is accurate.

Manning’s over-under passing yard prop is 320.5, considerably higher than Brady’s 269.5. It’s a big discrepancy for the game’s biggest QBs in their biggest game of the season.

The Denver Broncos remained favored by four points at Bovada with a total of 56. But the AFC title game props offered even more profit potential.


NFC Championship Game Betting Odds

San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh is 4-2 against Pete Carroll and the Seattle Seahawks, but the Seahawks have covered the spread in the last five meetings between the NFC West rivals.

The two teams will square off for a third time this season on Sunday as the 49ers travel to Seattle for the NFC Championship Game.

Seattle opened as 3.5-point favorites for the game on Sunday. The Seahawks have outscored San Francisco 71-16 in their past two meetings in Seattle, including a 29-3 win this season in Week 2.

Seahawks vs 49ers Prop Betting Odds

Russell Wilson and Colin Kaepernick have been the focus of hype all week and they will be the focus of prop betting action when the Seattle Seahawks and San Francisco 49ers lock up in the NFC Championship Game.

The Seahawks remained favored by a field goal at home, according to Bovada, with a low total of 39.

But will Kaepernick pass for more yards than Wilson? The Seahawks vs 49ers prop odds suggest not, with Wilson’s over-under at 200.5 and CK at 190.5.


Seahawks Stadium Noise Betting Odds

Rarely do fans get a chance to influence a point spread.

Rarer yet is when sportsbooks actually post odds on what the fans will do in a game.

But that’s what is happening in the NFC Championship Game where the Seattle Seahawks host the San Francisco 49ers. Online sportsbook Bovada (#1 rated at TopSportsbooks) posted a prop on the decibel level of the cheering at CenturyLink Field, where fans have set numerous records for noise this year.


Super Bowl Odds: Exact Matchup Betting

Just like it was three weeks ago, a Denver-Seattle Super Bowl remains the most likely matchup according to sportsbooks ahead of the conference title weekend.

A Seahawks-Broncos championship game is in a +130 favorite position, according to Bovada, which posted several unique prop bets this week.

Seattle hosts San Francisco in the NFC championship game while Denver hosts the New England Patriots in the AFC championship game.


Chargers vs Broncos Betting Outlook

The San Diego Chargers will be underdogs against the Denver Broncos in NFL Divisional Round action on Sunday, but Philip Rivers and company have already picked up one SU and ATS victory over Peyton Manning and the AFC's top seed this year.

San Diego fell 28-20 at home to Denver as a 7-point underdog on November 10, but they regrouped from that loss to beat the Broncos 27-20 in Denver as a 10-point underdog on the NFL odds on December 12. Both of those games turned out to be OVERs.
