Green Bay drops the Rams, hosts Brady and the Bucs in the NFC Championship
The Green Bay Packers dominated the Los Angeles Rams 32-18 in their divisional playoff game. On Sunday, Aaron Rodgers and the Packers host Tom Brady and the Buccaneers.
Terrific Tom and the Bucs beat rival New Orleans Saints 30-20 in their divisional game. Right now, most believe the Packers have an edge.
Rodgers is almost unbeatable at home. He’s also 7-1 in games where the temperature is 28 degrees or less at kickoff. Weather forecast calls for a 27 degree day in Green Bay on Sunday.
Although based on those stats the Packers look like locks, Tom Brady has a great 6-2 record in games where the temperature is 28 degrees or less at kickoff. Brady is 23-4 in games where the temp is 30 degrees or below.
That’s a lot of victories in cold weather. The key for the Bucs will be how well the defense holds up against Rodgers. Aaron has a 6-to-0 TD to INT ratio in his last two games. He’s thrown for 536 yards.
If the Bucs can’t stop Rodgers, he’ll destroy them. The soon to be NFL MVP is playing as well as any player left in the playoffs.
Kansas City waiting to hear if Mahomes can play against the Bills in the AFC Championship
The AFC Championship could lose some star power if Patrick Mahomes can’t go on Sunday. Even though Mahomes was a full practice participant on Wednesday, he remains in the concussion protocol.
Because the 2020 Super Bowl MVP may or may not play, Buffalo has become a solid moneyline choice. Odds remain KC -3, but the Bills are the popular bet.
Even with a healthy Mahomes, Kansas City must step it up to beat the Bills. Buffalo is the hottest team in the NFL. They’ve won 11-of-12. The loss happened against the Arizona Cardinals on a Hail Mary throw from Kyler Murray to DeAndre Hopkins.
Don’t sleep on the Bills to get it done on Sunday. Even if Mahomes shows up under center, the scorching underdogs have a big shot.
Green Bay becomes favorite to win Super Bowl LV
Perhaps because of Patrick Mahomes’ injury, the Green Bay Packers have become the outright +200 chalk to win Super Bowl LV. Kansas City is second choice at +210.
The Buccaneers are the longest shot on the board at +400 while the Bills offer +320 odds. At this point, there are no underlays or overlays. Back the team you like because fair odds show for all four Super Bowl contenders.
