NFL Odds for Conference Championships from Bodog

This Sunday, the NFL conference champions will be decided. Surprisingly, the NFC will be represented in the Super Bowl by either the Arizona Cardinals or the Philadelphia Eagles. I don’t think many people could have predicted that one. In the AFC, the Steelers will host the Ravens in what’s sure to be the very definition of smash-mouth football.

Last week, I went 2-2 on my picks. I liked the Cardinals at +10, but I was really surprised that they trounced the Panthers as bad as they did. The Titans and Giants both losing threw me for a loop, as at least one of the #1 seeds usually makes it to the conference title round. It just goes to show that anything can and will happen in the NFL.

By the way, my season record picking against Bodog’s line is now 100-89-4. Let’s see if we can boost it just a bit:


As you’ve come to expect, my picks are in bold print:

Philadelphia Eagles - 4 ½ @ Arizona Cardinals +4 ½ (the over/under is 47 points)

Baltimore Ravens +6 @ Pittsburgh Steelers -6 (the over/under is 34 points)
