I'm hoping to see the LA Rams and KC matchup in the Super Bowl but I'm okay with any of the four teams even New England.

I want KC and New Orleans but I suspect the Patriots will make it again.

I'm scared but excited at the same time. The Chiefs in the Super Bowl would be a big deal. I think a Chiefs vs. Rams rematch would be awesome.

Rooting for KC, but I don't trust Andy Reid at all.

I actually felt good with the Colts game with his clock management and establishing a running game.

Lines:

NO -3.5, 57 (total opened at 55.5, bet up to 57 so far)
KC -3, 55 (total opened at 59, bet down to 55, presumably due to the expected temps)

Re: 2018 NFL Playoffs - Conference Championships 01/20/2019

Half of me is hoping that after nearly 30 years of rooting for the Chiefs, I will finally see them in the Super Bowl.
The other half is praying that we don't have the Patriots in the Super Bowl yet again.

GO CHIEFS!!!!!!

The last time the Pats played in Arrowhead in 2014 on MNF Jamaal Charles ran all over them and that was the game everybody thought the Patriots dynasty was over and Belicheck said "On to Cincinnati"

Re: 2018 NFL Playoffs - Conference Championships 01/20/2019

The order of my preference to win the SB:

Rams
Patriots
Saints
Chiefs

My prediction is that it'll be a Chiefs/Saints SB.

If I have to see the SMUG-SMIRKING faces of Bilicheat and Brady in another Super Bowl, I will scream long and loud.

GO CHIEFS!

Same, although I am rooting for a Chiefs/Rams SB. The home field will be the decider in the Chiefs/Pats game and I would pick NO to beat the Rams regardless of venue, although playing in the Superdome will certainly help.

Re: 2018 NFL Playoffs - Conference Championships 01/20/2019

Something seems weird that Patriots players are trying to hype up that they are underdogs but I don't think anyone even cares.

And it's really fucking stupid and kinda pathetic They're 3 point underdogs - an evenly matched team playing on the road. This is hardly a "Nobody believes in us" scenario.

I'm almost positive the Super Bowl is going to be Patriots versus the Rams.

Re: 2018 NFL Playoffs - Conference Championships 01/20/2019

Ultimately rooting for an NFC team to win it all. Absolutely don't want another Pats Super Bowl and I'm sure as shit not going to root for the Chiefs.

This week I went home teams again.

It could be, but in the past five Super Bowls, it's been nine #1 Seeds and one #2 Seed. And that #2 Seed (2016 Falcons) didn't play a road game on the way to the Super Bowl (#1 Seed Cowboys got eliminated in the Divisional round).

Seems unlikely that both road teams would advance this year based on recent trends.

10 straight wins for the teams with HFA in the CCs. Before that, it was a lot more even.

6 years ago, both teams with HFA lost (Pats, ironically, to the Ravens; and the Falcons).

8th straight CC appearance for the Pats, which is absurd. Won 4 at home, lost 1 at home (BAL), lost 2 on the road (DEN).

Then find your closest sports book and money line parlay it if you're so sure. That would be a nice payout.
