NFL CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIP SUNDAY

This is the condensed version of picks for Sunday’s NFL conference championship games for Winners and Whiners between:

Los Angeles Rams at New Orleans Saints:

New England Patriots at Kansas City Rams (written by Chris Kubala)

Divisional round review:

And that’s the thanks I get for having faith in the Chargers. Ugh. In some ways, it was more aggravating that I only hit the Ekeler prop only because it came during garbage time and on Los Angeles’ second-to-last offensive play of the game. But hey, got the 5/5 right! (note sarcastic eye roll)

I was joking about an 0-16 week… little did I realize the betting gods saw that 8-0 Sunday mark in the wild-card round and sent a swift lightning bolt of reality my way.

Once more, THANK YOU for reading, and onto the picks!

For the individual games that have six picks, remember the 5/5 is simply the best pick of that individual game, not the entire week.

One important thing to note: The format Winners and Whiners uses for Monday night only allows for a full game spread pick and full game over/under. Only HERE will you find the complete six (now eight) pick listing that I usually make with each preview I do. If that changes, I will inform you accordingly.
