Unfortunately for you, I just started blogging and you have probably lost a shit ton of money betting on sports this year as a result. Well… better late than never. Here are my picks for the NFL Championship games.
Baltimore Ravens (+7) at New England Patriots – O/U: 50 – 3PM EST
This game features two teams that couldn’t be more opposite. New England, lead by the gayest quarterback to ever bang a super model, has a high flying offense while I’m not sure that the defense even takes the field. Baltimore, on the other hand, continues to play solid defense but let’s face it… Joe Flacco sucks. I think Tom Brady will be too much for Flacco to keep up with, even against the nonexistent Pats D.
Pick: Pats -7
New York Giants (+2.5) at San Fransisco 49ers – O/U: 41 – 6:30PM EST
This game should be more fun to watch. Plus I’ll be hammered by the time it starts. I’m not sure anyone has played better all around football all season than the Giants are right now. The defense is hitting its stride, while Eli Manning looks to top of an amazing season. Remember when everyone thought he sucked? Meanwhile, San Fran’s defense may be the best in the league and Alex Smith has decided not to suck. I think the Giants continue their football dominance on the path to a 2008 Super Bowl repeat. Sorry Harbaugh brothers.
Pick: Giants +3.5 (buy a point)
Bonus Pick: For fun, I also took a player prop bet. Hakeem Nicks will score the first TD of the game. I know… props for for assholes, but I have a gambling problem. Also, I have placed and hit on this exact bet three times this season, including the last 2 weeks.
