2016 NFL Playoffs: Conference Championship Betting Tips

January 23rd 2016, 11:58pm, By: Johnny Houston

Who will make it to Super Bowl 50? Can the Patriots add more success to what has already been a dominant era? Or will Peyton and the Broncos conquer Brady's army? And over the NFC will the Panthers reign supreme over the Cardinals? Find out what I think will happen in my 2016 NFL Conference Championship betting tips article.

AFC Championship

New England Patriots at Denver Broncos- Monday 7:05am

These two teams meet yet again for the AFC Championship game. Two legendary quarterbacks will be doing everything in their power to guide their teams to Super bowl 50. Tom Brady has an impressive 11-5 record against Peyton Manning. However Manning has won the last two against Brady in the playoffs. Two years ago Manning was a different quarterback and although he might have thrown for over 400 yards the last times these two meet in the playoffs but I certainly can’t see that happening now. Manning will be more of a game manager and most of the offense will go through running backs C.J Anderson and Ronnie Hillman.

New England is a three point favourite which seems a bit low to me. When Denver beat New England earlier this season 30-24 New England was without Julian Edelman and Danny Amendola. These two receivers will change the way the Offense is run significantly. Not to mention the last game was also won in overtime.

As much as I like this Denver defense I like the combo of Bill Bellicheck and Tom Brady more. I am predicting a close Patriots win. Patriots 31 Broncos 27

Tip: New England Patriots at the line (-3.0) - $1.97 at CrownBet


NFC Championship

Arizona Cardinals at Carolina Panthers – Monday 10:40am

Will the NFC Championship go to the Cardinals or the Panthers? If it comes down to a battle of the QB's, both Palmer and Newton have both had MVP season, but I think the Panthers' Cam Newton will edge him out because of his versatility. Carson Palmer simply looked average at times last week against a defense that is nowhere near as good as this Panthers defense. This has me worried for Arizona.

That's why I think we will see a repeat of Superbowl XXXVIII (38) - New England versus Carolina. In fact, I think Carolina wins this game quite easily and should find plenty to cover the 3-point line.

Tip: Carolina Panthers at the line (-3.0) - $1.94 at CrownBet
