NFL Championship Round Picks

Published On January 20, 2012 | By dominic | Alex

Decent week and with only three games to go, let’s try to finish strong.

NE – 7 | BAL + 7

Selection: NE – 7

Two teams heading in opposite directions. The Ravens looked good earlier in the season, beating the Fo’ Real 49ers and dispatching the hated Steelers home-and-away. But they looked lacklustre last week against a Texans team down to their third-string quarterback. The Pats have been rolling and will have a fired-up home field cheering them on.

I can’t see the ageing Baltimore defence finding an answer for the two huge tight ends and I think Joe “Under a Bus” Flacco is due a stinker. I’d have to think hard about this one if it were 7.5, but the chance to lay a bang 7 is too tempting.

SF -2.5 | NYG +2.5

Selection: SF -2.5

We’re gonna ride these 49ers all the way to Indy. I think they are marginally better than the Giants; throw in home field and the chance to lay less than the key number of 3 and this is an easy play.

The Giants are rounding into form, it’s true. But they can’t run the ball (especially on SF’s stout defence) and I think they were flattered against GB last week.

Good luck with your picks. The natural will be having a week off next week, but will be back with some expert gambling advice and plenty of big bets for the Super Bowl the week after.
