Wow have we been on a heater this postseason or what! 8-3 on all of our post season plays and I have three more for you guys this Sunday. Let's keep the momentum going.
This is a fantastic matchup. These two teams have already faced each other once in the playoffs, and it ended up in a Bengals victory. Now this game is much more important and on a way bigger stage so will the end result be the same? Probably not. The Chiefs juggernaut is back. The Death Star is back in action, and Darth Vader aka Patrick Mahomes is back in full force. That being said the Bengals have been a great story this year and Joe Burrow has been playing phenomenal football to put his team in this position. Joe Burrow is 5-0 in his last 5 starts and has covered the spread in each of those games. The Bengals have the better defense in this matchup, but I'm not confident in their ability to stop the Chiefs trifecta just yet. Patrick Mahomes is the best QB left in the postseason, and I cant see him letting his Chiefs fail in this rematch. I like the Chiefs to get it done in this game but I could see it being a close one with a lot of scoring. We are taking the Chiefs to win, and for the first time this year we are taking the over 54.5 points in this game.
Pick: Chiefs ML / Over 54.5 pts
The battle continues with this rivalry, and as a sports fan how could you not love it. These divisional opponents have already faced twice this year with the 49ers coming out on top in both games. These teams know each other very well, so this one is just going to come down to who can execute their game plan better. The 49ers smashmouth football has led them this far and you better believe they are sticking with this style of play. If the 49ers can control the clock with their run game I see very little possibility for the Rams to win in this one. Vice versa if the Rams can not turn the ball over and feed Cooper Cupp and OBJ, then we could very well see the Rams get their first victory against Kyle Shanahan and co. This should be a great tight knit battle against two divisional opponents and could truly go either way. There is no homefield advantage in this one, and there is expected to be more 49er fans in attendance than Rams fans. We have rode the 49ers in all of their postseason games and it's hard to bet against them at this point. The 49ers and Kyle Shanahan have the Rams number, and I think they cover the spread in this one and probably win outright. The value is with the Niners here and we are taking it. Give me the 49ers +3.5 and we're putting a small bet on the 49ers money line which is +150.
Pick: 49ers +3.5
