NFL Championship Sunday
Again, these are my picks, with my actual plays in BOLD
I think the Jags keep it close today, especially with Brady’s hand injury and the fact the Patriots offense can be streaky, especially late in the game once they get the adjustments down, which is why I like Jags +0.5 (-105) in the 1st quarter. But as the game wanes, I think Jags mistakes by their aggressive (and sometime undisciplined) defense combined by a healthy Gronk finally getting his production, the Pats eventually take this one down as they have been the best second half team all year. One prop I like: Dion Lewis Over receiving yards 30.5 at -125. I also think with the nice weather and the defensive schemes involved, points will be scored today so I really like the over 45.5 (-110).
Vikings -3.5 (+115)
I just can’t take Nick Foles two weeks in a row. BTW, they might as well call this the Torture Bowl with these two fan bases being the most tortured in all of sports. The Vikings injuries coming into the game are a concern, but you know Nick FOles is gonna make a mistake or 5 to keep them in it. I will also say, the NFL is worried about the Super Bowl being in Minny due to the lack of hotels (which means they would probably prefer the Vikings to be in the game) and the fact it will be cold as shit so the “experience” will most likely suck…..so the fix may be in for a Pats/Vikes Super Bowl.
NE/JAX Over 45.5
