NFL Who’s Hot and Who’s Not – Conference Championships

2 min read

No team in the NFL’s version of its Final Four is backing into this Sunday’s conference title games either on the field or at the betting window at BetAnySports. Starting in the NFC in a matchup between Green Bay and Atlanta, the Packers are riding a straight-up eight-game winning streak while going a profitable 7-1 against the spread. The Falcons have now won their last five games SU and they have covered on four of those contests.

Over in the AFC in a showdown between Pittsburgh and New England, the Steelers have now won their last nine games SU while going 7-1-1 ATS. The Patriots won 14 of 16 games in the regular season SU, while covering the spread in 13 of those games. With this past Saturday’s romp over Houston in the AFC Divisional Round, New England has now won its last eight games SU and it has covered ATS in its last six outings.

Looking back at the first two rounds of the NFL playoffs, the home favorites have a 6-2 edge both SU and ATS, with Green Bay and Pittsburgh bucking that trend with SU victories last week as road underdogs. The results on the total line have slightly favored the OVER with five of the eight games played going OVER BetAnySports’ closing line.

When you start breaking down which teams have been hot for bettors ATS in the postseason over the past few years, you would find that Green Bay has been able to cover in its last five playoff games and it is 4-1 ATS when it comes to its last five trips to the NFC title game. Atlanta may have covered this past weekend, but it is still a costly 1-6 ATS in its last seven postseason games. The total has gone OVER in four of the Packers last five road games in the playoffs and it has also gone OVER in the Falcons last six postseason games at home.

Pittsburgh is 2-0-2 ATS in its last four playoffs games overall, but it falls to 1-3-2 ATS in its last six postseason games played on the road. The Patriots are just 1-6 ATS in their last seven AFC title games, but they do improve to 4-1 ATS in their last five games played in the postseason. The total has stayed UNDER or ended as a PUSH in the Steelers’ last five playoff games and it has gone OVER in New England’s last five games in the playoffs.
