It has been a profitable post-season for me when it comes to picking against the NFL spread. 5 wins, 3 losses with three games to go until one team is hoisting the Lombardi Trophy. Here is what to expect AFC, NFC, Championship Sunday:
Green Bay (-3.5) at Chicago:
Too much firepower for the Bears to handle on both sides of the ball. Cutler will be forced into making costly mistakes and Favre's successor will continue to make the Cheeseheads forget #4. Take the Pack and give the points.
NY Jets at Pittsburgh (-3.5)
Give the Jets credit, they knocked out Indy and NE, not sure there is another NFL team that could have accomplished that. But this is a great matchup for the Steelers. The Jets need to run the ball so that Sanchez can just manage the game. Problem for Jets is Steelers stop the run better than anyone else. Jets defense thrives on pressuring the Q, but big Ben is the best (better than Manning and Brady) of extending the play after it breaks down. Steelers win and easily cover the spread.
#29 is #1 star tonight against 'canes as Pens win for the first time without #71 or #87 in the lineup.
