Read on for our NFL tips and best bets for the Conference Championship games of the 2019/20 season.
Tennessee Titans @ Kansas City Chiefs (Mon 07.05am AEST)
In the AFC Conference Championship, the Tennessee Titans will be on the road as they take on the Kansas City Chiefs. The game is one where experience will probably be important. Between the two coaches, Andy Reid of the Chiefs gets a huge nod. Not only has he been to this point in the season many times but he does have one win in the conference-championship round. He’s the one that you should expect to have the steadier team as the Chiefs will be able to organise themselves around Reid, knowing that he has been to this point in the season many times.
Reid’s counterpart is Mike Vrabel. He doesn’t bring the same kind of experience to the table. He is in just his second year of head coaching. The pressure won’t really be on him as making the conference finals is a big step in his career. His two playoff wins this season mark the only ones of his short career.
KC has peaked at the right time. Following some poor losses, they have now won five straight. That includes a 20-point win against Houston last week and a big spread in the final week of the season. Take KC to cover with a -7 spread available with BetEasy at odds of $2.00.
Green Bay Packers @ San Francisco 49ers (Mon 10.40am AEST)
The Green Bay Packers look great with the handicap help that’s available in their NFC Conference Championship final game against San Francisco. Green Bay can be taken at +7.5 with Sportsbet and odds of $1.90. Winning outright or losing by a converted touchdown looks probable for Green Bay.
They are 13-3 and so there isn’t much between them and ‘cisco. However, the Packers have a big edge with their quarterback. Aaron Rodgers brings way more to the table in these big games that his counterpart, Jimmy Garoppolo. The former Super Bowl MVP and two-time NFL MVP simply outclasses Garoppolo. The latter’s experience in these kind of situations is only as a back-up QB.
Last week, the 49ers had a good team game but Garoppolo was missing from the action a little. He went just 11 for 19 and he threw an interception. San Francisco had their rushing game going on and that looks like it saved them. Green Bay looks more into this game that what the spread suggests. Take them with the helpers.
