Conference Championship Picks

January 19th, 2020

Uh, yeah. I’ve got no idea what I’m talking about here.

Or at least not if we’re talking about margin of victory.

I went 0-4 picking against the spread in the divisional round. And, sure, I’d make some noise about the fact that I was 3-1 straight up. But that’s because three of the heavy favorite home teams won.

Overall, I stand at 5-3 straight up, 3-5 against the spread in the postseason. Not good no matter how you look at it.

Also, it’s late. So I’m not going to belabor any of this.

Here, in short, is what really, really not to expect in the conference championships

Tennessee (+7) at Kansas City
The Titans ought to win this game. They’ve looked so far like one of those teams that heats up down the stretch and stays hot through the Super Bowl. So far this season, they’ve beaten two teams that were better and more balanced than the one they face here. And they’ve done it by running the ball down the throats of defenses that were considerably better than the Chiefs’ run D. So please count on the Chiefs winning this game based on the fact that I’ve been wrong about most everything so far this postseason. Because I’m taking the Titans. By three.

Green Bay (+7) at San Francisco
Balance wins championships. San Francisco by 14.
