NFL Conference Championship SU Picks

Written by on January 20, 2017

If you like to take the guesswork out of making ATS football picks and you’re looking for some simple SU picks on this weekend’s quickly approaching NFL conference championship matchups, then you’ve come to the right place. Thanks to the pair of expert SU picks that you’re about to get on both conference clashes, you’re going to have a great chance to cash in with two winning wagers on Sunday. Now, let’s get started with these NFL free picks.

NFL Conference Championship SU Picks


Green Bay (12-6) at Atlanta (12-5)

When: 3:05 PM ET, Sunday, January 22, 2017 Where: Georgia Dome, Atlanta, Georgia NFL Odds: Falcons -4 / Total: 60 Analysis: I know a lot of people that didn’t think Matt Ryan and the Atlanta Falcons were going to get past the Seattle Seahawks in their NFC divisional matchup last weekend, but I did and I’m here to say that the explosive Falcons are going to do the same to Aaron Rodgers and the Green Bay Packers on Sunday. I know the Packers have scored 30 points or more in six straight games, but the Falcons are averaging a league-high 33.8 points per game this season and just put 36 points on the board against Seattle last weekend. For me, the Falcons just have the look of a team with a date with destiny. Atlanta can move the ball through the air and on the ground and has arguably the best linebacker in the league in gifted stud Vic Beasley. The Falcons get the huge win at home to deny Rodgers and the Pack a berth in Super Bowl 51. Pick: Atlanta Falcons SU Win

Pittsburgh Steelers (13-5) at New England Patriots (15-2)

When:  Sunday, January 22, 2017 at 6:40 PM ET Where: Gillette Stadium, Foxborough, Massachusetts NFL Odds: New England -6 / Total: 50.5 Analysis: I like Ben Roethlisberger and the Pittsburgh Steelers and I’d love to see them deny Tom Brady and the New England Patriots berth in Super Bowl 51. Unfortunately, it’s not going to happen! The Patriots have a future Hall of Fame quarterback and head coach and a ‘sneaky good’ defense that led the league in fewest points allowed if you didn’t know. Combine that with the fact that Pittsburgh didn’t look like world-beaters in their narrow 18-16 divisional round win over Kansas City last weekend and it’s easy for me to see New England getting the win at home in the AFC conference championship. I’m expecting New England to put their defensive focus of stopping Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown while getting an outstanding performance or two from a couple of their own more unheralded offensive skill position players. New England wins this game outright to reach Super Bowl 51! Pick: New England Patriots SU Win
