With only two games this weekend, the best way to maximize wagers is to check out sportsbook prop bets for the NFL conference championships.
In Denver, two of the greatest quarterbacks to play the game will square off for the 15th time. When the Broncos and Patriots met earlier in the season, it was in Foxboro in heavy winds. The team’s put up 65 combined points, as the Pats prevailed in overtime. Kickoff Sunday should be in perfect conditions, and in the mid-50s, so consider that when looking at the over/under.
There is bound to be some overreaction following Legarrette Blount’s monster game against Indianapolis. However, with perfect weather don’t sleep on the quarterbacks. If the Pats get down early, look for Belichick to live and die on the golden arm of Tom Brady. Likewise, Peyton Manning is posting the best numbers of his illustrious careers.
In the NFC, Seattle and San Francisco meet for the third time on the season. The game will be played at CenturyLink Field, where the Seahawks have given up more than 20 points only once all year. While the Niners won their Week 14 rematch, they only posted three points during a Week 2 defeat in Seattle.
The victor of each game has won the rushing battle. While Colin Kaepernick and Russell Wilson steer the vessel, the ultimate success in this game comes on the ground.
There are bound to be some good props out there this weekend, and you can hit big if you know exactly what to look for.
